Pop in between 30 and 31 October 2018 from 10am-7pm to enjoy a Parisian experience and enjoy a coffee and croissant on the house.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting
After the rumours at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they are expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Currently on their official 16-day tour of Australia, the Duchess shows how to pull off a sophisticated maternity look with a white “Blessed” dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, high-waisted jeans by ethical Australian designer Outland Denim with an oversized blazer by Serena Williams Collection.


Lady Gaga’s oversized suit spoke volumes
“I tried on dress after dress today getting ready for this event, one tight corset after another, one heel after another, a diamond, a feather, thousands of beaded fabrics and the most beautiful silks in the world," says the 32 year-old performer. "To be honest, I felt sick to my stomach. And I asked myself: What does it really mean to be a woman in Hollywood?” In the end, Gaga wore a Marc Jacobs oversized suit from the latest Spring/Summer '19 collection to ELLE's 25th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration. “As a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the pants,” she said.


Kanye West gave away Yeezys to kids in Uganda
Kanye and Kim Kardashian gifted a pair of signed Yeezys to the President of Uganda before flying on the President’s helicopter to visit a local kids charity. Kanye handed out dozens of "Triple White" Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 shoes and even rapped for the excited kids. Both Kim and Kanye wore matching World Food Programme neon yellow tops while mingling with the community.


Coach gives back
Making dreams a reality, the Coach Foundation announced it will donate US$1.4 million to the Future Project — an organisation that equips high school students with the skills they need in school and life. Since 2008, the foundation has given more than US$45 million to non-profit partners all over the world. Alongside ambassadors Michael B. Jordan and Selena Gomez — who serves as honorary Dream Directors — Coach will help students bring their passion-based projects to life.


And it was all yellow
At the Washington D.C. premiere of their film First Man, Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy shared a vibrant colour scheme and a daring style sensibility. Foy wore in a beautiful marigold chiffon Oscar de la Renta gown that had a unique criss-cross and subtle cutout design, with Gosling matching his co-star with a smart emerald Gucci suit with a bright yellow button-down. Who says matching couple outfits are tacky?
