Wait a second? Vegans? Paris? Aren’t those terms mutually exclusive? Oui oui, even in the jungle of steak frites, fromage and crème brûlée, vegans do roam. And they’ll all be gathering to celebrate their veggie-chic ways on Paris Vegan Day on November 28th at la Bellevilloise. The theme? “Comment vivre sa vie vegan?” or How to live a Vegan life. From 11 am to midnight, the streets of Paris’ 20th arrondissement will be filled with anti-animal, pro-FUN for all complete with musical concerts, culinary demonstrations from celebrity vegan chefs like Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero or Joshua Katcher, a vegan brunch, conferences all day long, planet-friendly fashion shows, a raffle to win fabulous prizes and a photo competition about “Being Vegan.” The event is sponsored by the brand Lush, magazine VegMag, the world’s first Vegan B&B the Gentle Gourmet, V-G Zone and Un Monde Vegan. So put down your steak knives and check it out! Bon Vegappétit!

On November 23rd, girls from all over the world of all ages and all sizes will be flocking to line up along the streets of their current cities. They’ll be pitted against each other in a survival of the fittest where only the strongest will endure. Yes, my friends, on November 23rd, H&M will launch their collection from Lanvin across the globe. The very lucky Irina Lazareanu is the official model for the collection that features 30 looks and 15 accessories for women and 25 outfits and 10 accessories for men. Wait, let’s review – Lanvin elegance at H&M prices. Seriously? It’s too good to be true. Well, almost. Just try and fight against the thousands and thousands of girls who will be waiting on line to attack the store’s shelves. Last night, H&M unveiled the new collection at a cocktail in Paris and I can tell you first hand that it’s FABULOUS. It’s fun and colorful, yet classy at the same time. I’m especially into a dress featuring legs and high-heeled shoes, a long, faux fur vest, all of the hot black more formal dresses and the fabulous jackets. Oh là là Là…nvin!
