T LOunge for August 29th, 2023

Posted on August 29, 2023

PinRose Bar and Lounge at Mondrian Shoreditch – London, UK

There’s no such thing as a happy TUESDAY, but let’s spend the day wishing one to each other anyway. We’re feeling the need for a chicly cozy vibe today, as we’re in that weird liminal period when the days are getting shorter and the leaves are losing their luster, but it still feels like high summer. We’re ready to pumpkin spice this joint up, but it’s hard to maintain that vibe when everything’s sweaty and humid. Anyway, drinks are on us, darlings.

From Texas to the Place Vendôme: The Surreal World of Daniel Roseberry
Long before the summer showing of Schiaparelli’s couture collection, Daniel Roseberry, the house’s creative director, gathered his thoughts as he always did: by starting from the future that he hoped to reach. He imagined a review of the collection in the press, and wrote a version of it, line by line. He grew up in Texas and, on arriving in Paris to lead Schiaparelli toward a new phase of growth in 2019, worked to find a narrative order for the rangy span of his creative life. Roseberry loves reviews, their clarity and judgment—given the choice, he’d often rather read reviews of movies than see them. Imagining a critic approaching his fashion helps him find its big emotions, its broad sweep. “If I can identify and anticipate in my mind what people want to see, I can work backward,” he explained. “How do I make that review come to life?”


Miley Cyrus Says Constantly Being Observed, “Level of Ego” Required While Touring “Isn’t Healthy for Me”
“It erases my humanity and my connection and without my humanity, my connection, I can’t be a songwriter, which is my priority,” the “Flowers” singer said during the latest installment of her ‘Used to Be Young’ TikTok series.

“There’s a level of ego that has to play a part that I feel gets overused when I’m on tour. And once that switch is on, it’s hard to turn it off. I think when you’re training your ego every single night to be active, that’s the hardest switch for me to turn off,” she said. “Having every day the relationship between you and other humans being subject and observer isn’t healthy for me, because it erases my humanity and my connection and without my humanity, my connection, I can’t be a songwriter, which is my priority.”


The Venice Film Festival’s best-ever fashion
We round up 50 of the most memorable red-carpet moments from the glamorous event

he Venice Film Festival is one of the most glamorous events on the red-carpet calendar, always attracting the biggest names and brightest talents in Hollywood. As the world’s longest-running film festival, Venice never fails to have an impressive line-up of movies and is considered a significant launch pad for award season contenders – but this year is set to be slightly different…


36 Hours in Summertime Rome (With Kids)—Yes, It’s Possible!
We had a mere 36 hours before our flight departed, so we set off almost immediately upon arrival in the city for the Colosseum, where a guide met us with walkie-talkie-style radios that we wore around our necks for the duration of the tour. “The children will tire of them in five minutes,” the guide told us—not so. Give my kids a semi-high-tech toy through which to transmute the ancients and they are happy campers. A many-mile trek to a fabled pizzeria (recommended by that same friend who had escaped his graduate studies) followed. It was, of course, closed for August. A passerby in bright green trousers ushered us into the pizzeria next door and we were, also predictably, delighted by it.


Is a proposal at someone else’s wedding romantic, or is it stealing the limelight?
The internet is in two camps.

Picture the scene: it’s your wedding day. You’ve been planning it for the best part of a year (and, OK, secretly since you were 12), spent thousands on hosting your friends and family, and then, out of nowhere, comes a romantic moment you’d never anticipated. Except, it isn’t yours: it’s your friend, seizing the moment to propose to their significant other. Would you freak out – or would you think little of it, other than to wish them well?


‘The White Lotus’ Costume Designer Created One Last Look Before Tanya’s Plunge
Emmy nominee Alex Bovaird breaks down the surprising technical elements hidden within the final dress worn by Jennifer Coolidge’s Tanya in the HBO drama series.

Crafting the farewell ensemble for Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge) — before she shoots up a yacht of murderous gays and tumbles into the sea to her untimely death in the season two finale of HBO’s The White Lotus — was a labor of love for costume designer Alex Bovaird, who has delighted in conjuring up Coolidge’s outfits since she first arrived at the White Lotus resort in Hawaii for season one.


50 Cute Costume Ideas to Wear for Halloween This Year
From iconic movies to celebrity ensembles, we’ve got them all here.

For many of us, Halloween presents the ultimate opportunity to showcase our creative talents by piecing together showstopping ensembles. Of course, some of us tend to feel the pressure of devising the perfect look. And when the last day of October rolls around, we default to slipping on a pair of animal ears. I can’t deny it’s a solid option, but if you’re looking to spice things up this year, read on.


The Inventor of the Pumpkin Spice Latte Told Us How It Became a Cult Favorite — And Starbucks Is Celebrating the 20-Year Anniversary With 2 New Drinks
Can these newcomers top the PSL’s two decades of viral fame?

The autumnal equinox occurs in late September, but many know the real start of fall as when the Pumpkin Spice Latte (affectionately known as the PSL) hits menus. Starbucks’ seasonal lineup arrives nationwide tomorrow with two new items: Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken Espresso and Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte.
The latter, based on a fan-favorite modification of the classic chai latte, is topped with the chain’s pumpkin cold foam. The new shaken espresso stands as a sibling to the seasonal Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, first introduced in 2021.


Why France Is Spending $216 Million to Destroy 80 Million Gallons of Wine
Well, this is a bummer.

Some literary historians have traced the origin of the phrase “don’t cry over spilled milk” back to an obscure 17th-century book of proverbs written by an equally obscure Welsh writer. Although “don’t cry over spilled wine” may not be commonly used, wasted wine is definitely more painful – and increasingly relevant this summer.
In June, the European Union gave France €160M ($173M) to destroy almost 80 gallons of wine, and the French government has since added another €40M ($43M) to that total.


The heartbreaking story of the Queen’s cousin, Prince William of Gloucester, who became known as ‘the other Prince William’
To mark the anniversary of the week of his death, Tatler looks back at the life of ‘the other Prince William’, Prince William of Gloucester whose life ended in tragic circumstances

Prince William of Gloucester died 51 years ago this week, on 28 August 1972. To mark the tragic anniversary, Tatler takes a look back at the heartbreaking life story of the adventurous, athletic, loving prince whose name has earned him the monicker ‘the other Prince William’.
Born on 18 December 1941, Prince William was the eldest son of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester and Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott. Prince Henry was the third son of King George V and Queen Mary and younger brother of King Edward VIII (later Duke of Windsor) and King George VI. Lady Alice was the third daughter of the 7th Duke of Buccleuch and Lady Margaret Bridgeman. At birth, Prince William was fourth in line to the throne. His parents welcomed another son, Prince Richard, in 1944.


Queen Rania of Jordan at 53: celebrating her 53 best style moments in honour of her birthday
Queen Rania of Jordan, who turns 53 on 31 August, is renowned for her impeccable taste – and she did not disappoint at the wedding of her son Crown Prince Hussein

This week, Queen Rania will celebrate her 53rd birthday, which many royal fans will find difficult to believe given her eternally youthful good looks. It remains to be seen how the royal will mark the occasion but she certainly has plenty to celebrate: her son Crown Prince Hussein married the beautiful Princess Rajwa earlier this year, months after her daughter Princess Iman’s wedding.


18 New Restaurants to Put on Your Fall List
Here are the New York City openings to keep an eye on: a subway-station tasting counter, a Louisiana-style oyster bar, the return of Café Boulud and more.

New restaurants open all year round in New York City, but fall arrives with the snap of fresh tablecloths, napkins and menus — and this year, several familiar names. Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Andrew Carmellini and Marcus Samuelsson are among the star chefs with significant projects at hand. But a number of newcomers will also be worth checking out. In particular, autumn will usher in a compelling array of noteworthy Asian restaurants.


Queer History Was Made in ’90s Clubs. These Fliers Captured It.
“Getting In,” a new book from David Kennerley, collects the edgy advertisements for parties at clubs like the Palladium and records a culture forged from defiance.

In the new book “Getting In,” the journalist David Kennerley takes an electric visual stroll through New York’s 1990s gay club scene. Not with photos, exactly, but through fliers — more than 200 of them — featuring polychromatic drag queens and come-hither hunks who enticed him to dance to Frankie Knuckles and Junior Vasquez remixes at popular nightclubs like Twilo and the Palladium, and parties like Jackie 60 and Lick It!
“People threw the fliers on the ground,” Kennerley, 63, said in a recent interview at a Midtown cafe. “I thought, why would you throw this out? It’s going to be a memento.”


Martha’s Bleach-Free Laundry Trick Is the Secret to Whiter Whites
So long as you’re using ultra-hot water, you can skip the chemicals, she explains.

Soy sauce, red wine, and vinaigrettes: All are enemies to your white button-down shirts. And while these culprits may leave stains in their wake, regular wear and tear, especially when it comes to white linens or towels, often leaves these everyday items dull or dingy.
Naturally, Martha has a solution for both situations—which she shared on television years ago. In the above clip, our founder explains how she restores her favorite colorless items (like the Brooks Brother’s top she used as an example in the segment) back to their original brightness.


Yes, You Can Cook Cucumbers—Here’s How to Grill, Bake, and Sauté Them
Sure, they are great in salads and sandwiches, but wait until you try cooking with cucumbers.

When you think about a cool, crunchy, and refreshing fruit, few come to mind sooner than a cucumber (even if you’ve always categorized it as a vegetable). They are famous for their freshness and omnipresence in salads, but did you know you can cook cucumbers? Dawn Perry, author of the cookbook Cucumbers, was surprised by “just how versatile cucumbers are, and how forgiving!” when developing recipes for her book on the favorite green fruit. She shares tips and techniques for cooking cucumbers to entice you to try them in a new breadth of ways.


The Upper Valley of Vermont Has New Farm Stays, General Stores, and an Honor-system Ice Cream Shop — How to Plan a Trip
Vermont’s Upper Valley is putting a fresh spin on small-town life.

I’ve been going to Vermont’s Upper Valley, a varyingly defined area roughly bordered by Norwich to the north and greater Woodstock to the south, for several decades. The achingly quintessential town of Woodstock was my gateway drug, as it is for many people. I would inevitably visit the Yankee Bookshop, or get a chocolate frappé at the White Cottage, or stroll from the living-history Billings Farm & Museum through town for a drink at the Woodstock Inn & Resort. But in the past few years, I’ve looked beyond the established favorites and discovered a new group of entrepreneurs with a strong localist bent.
