The first task Chic undertakes upon entering a cab? Extinguishing Taxi TV. But no more! Last night, during a routine ride home from Seasonale (it's true, Kurt—that's good schnitzel!), we just plain forgot...and what luck! Right as we crossed Fifth Avenue, a beatific face graced the screen. Yes, it's Page Six's Neel Shah, narrating some sort of advertorial for some vaguely internety company. We don't care what he's doing, we just want to see more of it.

Chic is always thrilled when fashion and health converge, but in this case...what ever happened to privacy? 

Today, actress and TV personality Lisa Rinna and sexual health expert Dr. Laura Berman are joining the Society for Women’s Health Research to launch a new women’s health campaign, “Sex Brain Body: Make the Connection.”  The educational campaign focuses on lack of desire in women and is designed to help women recognize and better understand the link between the brain, the body and sexual desire.

I’ve attached the press release announcing the launch of the campaign, as well as the campaign survey fact sheet, which includes some interesting new findings about women’s and men’s perceptions of sexual desire.  Both Lisa Rinna and Dr. Berman are available for interviews this week.  I attached Lisa Rinna’s bio for your reference as well.  

Please let me know if you are interested in more information or would like to speak with either of the spokespeople—hope to hear from you soon! 

Thank you, [redacted]

You may be en route to Cannes or returning from Saint Tropez, but how about a quick trip to Shanghai? In honor of Dior's recently-reopened boutique in Shanghai's Plaza 66, the brand is launching a limited-edition, 12-piece collection of iconic pieces in Dior blue. A mobile phone in sapphire crystal, a "Dior Lucky" scarf featuring a John Galliano-designed collection of the house's famous model, Lucky, a sequinned Lady Dior evening bag and a classic calfskin version---and Chic's favorite, this Mise en Dior blue pearl necklace. The pieces will be available exclusively at the Shanghai boutique, so book those flights now, darlings!

If you haven't seen Exit Through the Gift Shop yet (and we highly recommend you do), consider this your opportunity to get a little street art in your own home. Yes, we know that Space Invader, the artist, is based on Space Invaders, the game, but street art is having a moment---so here's your chance to jump on board. This toaster not only makes your bread a perfect golden brown, but it actually presses one of the mini invaders right into your breakfast. What can your work do for us, Banksy?

Sonia Rykiel may be known as the queen of knitwear, but the designer is now trying her hand at a different artistic medium. Works in pencil, markers, and pastels make up the first-ever exhibition and private sale of sketches by Rykiel, which will go on display June 4 at the Galerie Catherine Houard in Paris. Over 20 drawings, private sketches and notes will be on display in the 6th arrondissement (in the heart of St. Germain des Prés, less than a block away from Rykiel’s Left Bank flagship). The show runs from June 4 through July 24.

Those of you who think that Balmain is for girls' indulgence only are in for a Barneys awakening. The retailer is currently hawking a cotton denim double-breasted belted trench by the brand for a mere $1,135.00. It's seriously beginining to sound like a great deal in comprasion to the Balmain women's prices. (Remember this $5,000 army shirt?) Ladies, feel free to pinch!
