Pommery Champagne Bar – London, England
Today’s LOunge looks like the kind of perfectly cool, drop-dead chic space for breaking off into small groups and gossiping. Let’s do it, kittens! Let’s spread rumors and tell tales out of school (whatever that means)! It beats being productive or doom-scrolling, yes? Yes!
Today is WEDNESDAY. A day that’s practically synonymous with being irresponsible and non-productive.
We’re off to find things to distract you and cause you to procrastinate, but until then, feel free to sample from our menu of nibbly small-plate distractions.

Why Dynasty-Style Shoulders Are Making a Comeback
“In times of insecurity and instability, shoulder pads are like armor,” and we need them now more than ever.
Whenever there is a notable resurgence of shoulder pads in fashion—as we have seen in several instances this year, from the Balenciaga and Saint Laurent shows back in March to the latest Givenchy and Balmain collections from Paris Fashion Week two months ago—tribute must be paid to the enduring legacy of Dynasty.
The One Dish: Thanksgiving 2020 and How to Deal
The holidays will be different this year. We asked some of our favorite food people and entertainers about what they’re doing for Thanksgiving. We wanted to know about the one special dish that, no matter where and how they’re celebrating, would make them feel right at home.
This Thanksgiving is different, and we aren’t seeing the loved ones we would usually celebrate with, what’s the one dish people could cook that would make the holiday seem normal? What could we eat or drink at Thanksgiving that would remind us of less unsettled times? Thanksgiving dishes can be more about tradition and comfort than anything else. Of course they should taste good (and we’ll help you with that, too), but for this series, we wanted to explore the power a single dish has to bring joy or solace or warmth—some sort of good feeling—during a holiday season that, for many, will be lacking in those sentiments.
10+ Unique—and Gorgeous—Wedding Aisle Ideas
Get inspired by these memorable wedding walkways, from runway-inspired aisles to ceremonies that are all about the view.
One of the most important aspects of the wedding day is, undoubtedly, the wedding ceremony. It’s traditionally where your guests are first greeted, likely where they’ll first see you as a bride, and it’s the reason why everyone is gathered—to witness you reciting your vows, and making a commitment to one another. It’s also where you’ll have your first kiss and make your recessional as newlyweds. With all that in mind, the framework and design of this space is paramount, and sets the tone of the entire event. Your wedding aisle should reflect the vibe of you as a couple—and tie in the design elements of your wedding day. This is a space that sets the tone; it ushers guests into the mood of your event. With the help of your wedding planner and/or wedding designer and floral team, we suggest you think outside the box when it comes to the aisle. After all, this special spot will also be highly photographed.
Lucille Bridges, Who Walked With Daughter Ruby to Desegregate New Orleans School, Dies at 86
Lucille Bridges, the mother of civil rights activist Ruby Bridges, who walked with her then-6-year-old daughter past crowds screaming racist slurs as she became the first Black student at her all-white New Orleans elementary school, has died at the age of 86.
On her Instagram account Tuesday evening, Ruby Bridges said, “Today our country lost a hero. Brave, progressive, a champion for change. She helped alter the course of so many lives by setting me out on my path as a six year old little girl. Our nation lost a Mother of the Civil Rights Movement today. And I lost my mom. I love you and am grateful for you. May you Rest In Peace.”
