Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

Voices in the wilderness: a singing retreat in rural France

Teaching singing and meditation isn’t an obvious calling for a former punk rocker, but this one helps our participant hit the high notes on a break in the remote Massif Central‘Get that gob open, Liz,” says Peter. “I’m not seeing any teeth.” I obey, stretching my jaw wide as we’d done in an earlier “howling wolf” exercise, and find that not only can I hit a top F# without squeaking, I’m thoroughly enjoying myself.When I booked a three-day singing retreat at Peter Evans’s farmhouse in rural Franc...

10 OPI Nail Polish Colors Everyone Agrees On

Think of the nail polish that raised you. Maybe it was the bright poppy red you watched your mom paint on her toes every summer, or the shiny bubblegum pink you drained until it was dry and crusty in middle school. Whatever your memory, chances are good that the glass bottle sticking out in your mind had a faded OPI label on it.The nail brand is iconic, thanks to its signature long-wearing, glossy formula and cheeky shade names. But with more than 500 bottles, shopping for a simple nude out of ...

It's the dead of winter, so naturally, all any of us can think about is laying on a pleasantly scorching beach with a good book and a maybe even a strawberry margarita.

Gold of Tuva, the New Perfume of the Russian Brand Natura Siberica

The name Natura Siberica probably rings a bell in many minds… but maybe not as a perfume brand. And that's because this brand from Russia mostly develops body and hair care products, using the benefits of preserved plants from Siberia. In France, you are more likely to encounter this line of cosmetics at a Monoprix store (the convenience store chain that's an institution in the country) than at...

Lazy Day Brunch Outfits That Still Look Put Together

The 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekend social feast known as brunch ranks high on pastimes embraced and perfected by Americans. And as all true brunch enthusiasts know, it's as much about the food as it is the company — so when the meal is delish and the crowd's just right, the syrup on top of the pancaked occasion is an outfit to match. Because brunch isn't just any old meal it deserves a fitting look for those, "snagged a reservation at that award-winning chef's new spot," or, "haven't seen this group...

Why Micellar Water Is The One Thing You Need For Better Skin This Winter

For every American celebrity with clear, flawless baby-angel skin who claims that water is her ride-or-die beauty secret, there’s an equally radiant French ingenue who says micellar water is hers.Micellar water, for the uninitiated, is not just a fancy type of H2O, a gimmick preying on the same type of people who insist on sparkling spring water instead of tap even if you’re at Wendy’s. Rather, it’s a different kind of special water, one that uses tiny micelles, which are clusters of fatty-acid...

How the Inventor of Dynamite, Alfred Nobel, Read an Obituary That Called Him “The Merchant of Death” and Made Amends by Creating the Nobel Prize

No one can ever fully predict the consequences of their actions. Still, some warning bells should be hard to ignore. Take Alfred Nobel, for instance, the founder of the Nobel Prize. For most of his life, he had a different reputation—as the inventor of dynamite, one of the most destructive technologies of the age. Though he maintained his motives were pure, Nobel had no shortage of signs telling him his creation might do at least as much harm as good. He persevered and lived to regret it...

'Victor Hugo becomes a sex god in my mind' – how to get better at French

Worried that she is speaking French like Joey Essex speaks English, Emma Beddington fights back with classes, podcasts and cartoons about mustard-loving aliens resuscitating literary giantsI used to think I was pretty great at French: I could handle a subjunctive and disdained the myriad mangled pronunciations of “millefeuille” on Masterchef. I lived in French-speaking Brussels for 12 years and have a French husband who still tolerates me misgendering the dishwasher after 24 years. My inflated s...

Aurora Charles Wong: For the Modern Mr. Darcy

  First was France. A man from Hong Kong came there to work and was conquered by the French savoir vivre: the French classical style of clothing (especially masculine), French history, and everything expressed in the French fashion (architecture, high cuisine...)

Expensive-Looking Bubbly That's Actually Affordable

If the clock strikes midnight on January 31st and no one pops Champagne, is it even New Year's Eve?

Champagne undoubtedly adds festive layers of sophistication to any celebratory occasion, but finding the right bottle can an expensive investment.

These Dior Bags Are Literal Works Of Art

The idea that fashion is art — and vice versa — has been debated for eons. Some designers and visionaries will tell you fashion is made to be used, to function, thus disqualifying it from being art. And some will tell you that fashion is wearable art. No matter which side you fall on, you can always win an argument by settling on the fact that (most) fashion is meant to be digested (and enjoyed) on a cerebral level. And it's a conversation Dior's artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri is tacklin...

10 Indians in the 1920s-30s went on cycling expeditions; 7 succeeded

October 15, 1923 was yet another mellow Monday morning in Bombay, but the city’s central district of Grant Road was ablaze with blaring music. The erstwhile Bombay Weightlifting Club had organised a send-off for six of its young members — Adi B Hakim, Gustad G Hathiram, Jal P Bapasola, Keki D Pochkhanawala, Nariman B Kapadia and Rustom B Bhumgara — all of them Parsis in their 20s and readying for their cycling expedition around the world, a first such feat by Indians.

The Dangers of Getting Jobs Through Friends

--> Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure. “Oh, I already have a friend there. I’ll just contact him.” In the job market, it’s one of the more common things we hear after informing a job seeker that a certain employer has a job opening. There is a lot you need to consider before you decide to apply to a job through a friend or relative, or take a job working for a friend or relative. First, it’s exceedingly rare that a friend o...
