MISS UNIVERSE 2017 STEVE HARVEY CROWNS MISS FRANCE AS THE WINNER

MISS UNIVERSE 2017
The correct one this time.
If you tuned into the Miss Universe competition on Sunday hoping that host Steve Harvey might, well, pull a Steve Harvey like at last year’s event, you’re probably wishing you could get the last three hours of your life back. But for pageant purists, it was a magnificent evening, full of sights, sounds and marvellous parade of beautiful gowns!

Tribute to Sonia Rykiel

Tribute to Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel, legendary designer of her eponymous fashion label, sadly passed away on Thursday August 25 at the age of 86. Vogue Paris pays tribute.

Born in Neuilly in May 1930, Sonia Rykiel passed away on Thursday August 25 in Paris at the age of 86 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. The designer, well-recognized for her flaming red hair, founded her eponymous fashion label in May 1968 and opened her first boutique in the Saint-Germain-des-PrĂ©s neighborhood of Paris the same year.
