Scientists Confirm That Stress Can Indeed Turn Hair Grey

When Ya-Chieh Hsu, professor of stem cell and regenerative biology at Harvard University and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, wanted to figure out exactly what makes hair turn grey, she started with an obvious, albeit anecdotal, culprit: stress. There are well-known historical examples of the connection between stress and hair greying—Marie Antoinette’s coif reportedly blanched after she was captured during the French Revolution—and studies have even linked stress in animals to greying hair...

Utterly butterly: Kent’s Cobham Dairy, a digital detox for the contentedly idle

The Landmark Trust has refurbished this historic ‘pleasure dairy’ in the Kent countryside as an ideal wifi-free getaway – some might say it’s maid in heavenLet’s face it, at some point we’ve all had a hankering to get in touch with our inner Marie Antoinette. Not so much the thoughtless “Let them eat brioche” side of the spendthrift French queen (assuming she ever said it) but her playing at being a rustic farmworker but dropping it all and heading back to the palace as soon as it becomes a chor...

‘Emma’ Trailer: Jane Austen’s Classic Comedy Gets a Little Quirky with Anya-Taylor Joy

Jane Austen’s classic comedy Emma has been adapted several times in a variety of different ways. Gwyneth Paltrow starred in a film adaptation back in 1996, BBC turned it into a miniseries in 2009, and the classic teen comedy Clueless gave us a modern spin on the tale that may as well be the definitive adaptation of the story. But director Autumn de Wilde may have offered some competition in a new adaptation that keeps the period setting but seems to have a quirky, contemporary comedic sensibili...

The ambitious display features over 500 pairs of shoes plus posters, artifacts, ads, photographs and films.   A significant point of departure for the show is a black shoe owned by Marie An...

Rose of Versailles Available for Pre-Order

In 2015, Udon Entertainment announced that they would be publishing Riyoko Ikeda’s classic shojo manga Rose of Versailles. It’s about a woman dressing as a man and protecting Marie Antoinette as commander of her palace guard. It’s very frilly and starry-eyed, as suits its original 70s period of creation, but it’s also historically significant as an influential story. In early 2018, the publisher provided an update on their publishing plans. Now, the book is available for preorder, and I know [.....

Brocante Heaven

  Several months ago at the flea market here in France, I was digging through a box, pulling out one piece of antique linen after another. I love moments like this... a cardboard treasure chest and nobody around to watch me drool over my discoveries. Then as if the French flea market fairy landed at my feet the dealer said to me, "I have a whole attic full." My mouth dropped, my heart skipped a beat, but I managed to compose myself to ask, (in French with my twangy American accent,), "Can I come...

Make the Palace of Versailles yours on Google Arts & Culture

One of the first things I saw when I arrived at the Palace of Versailles in 2011 was a construction site. In partnership with Google, we were building the History Gallery, an exhibit that brought together our art collections and digital reconstructions of the palace in 3D. The History Gallery gave people a better understanding of Versailles, and eight years later, the partnership between the Palace of Versailles and Google Arts & Culture continues to give everyone access to this cultural treasur...

Will Aaron Schock’s newly leaked clothes-free selfies finally bury his political career?

Aaron Schock’s public outing has continued with a series of clothes-free sexts hitting the innerwebs this morning (link NSFW).  We assume it’s safe to say that his political career is pretty much toast, more for his shady financial dealings and hypocrisy than his shedding of clothes. The closeted life of the former U.S. Rep has made him the butt of jokes ever since taking office in 2009. Rumors about his sexuality began when he appeared in Men’s Health magazine with his pecs on full display and...

Lili Reinhart Wore a Bouquet of Flowers on Her Head to the Met Gala, and Now We Want to, Too

We've seen a lot of showstopping hair looks on the Met Gala pink carpet thus far, including a head full of mini bows from the iconic Lady Gaga and a Gucci rhinestone ponytail from Ashley Graham. Adding to the list of double-take-worthy hairstyles is the pretty pink orchid-filled hairstyle from Lili Reinhart.

Mini Tarte Tatins

  Tarte Tatin is one of my favorite French desserts, it is a classic down to earth recipe when it comes to the array of French desserts, it is not the Marie Antoinette of pastries, instead, it is a French Country type that I can imagine having at a long farm table by an open fire. The other day I had every intention to make a Tarte Tatin, but time was not on my side and guests where around the corner. So I had to improvise that is what I do since I usually have too many grand ideas and little t...
