Chic has a Daily Intel-esque obsession with Julian Schnabel, but ours originates mainly from The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. But that's not the only reason we are sharing these images of onetime Schnabel collaboratrix, Rula Jebreal. Today, she makes her debut on Emanuele Della Valle LifestyleMirror.com, the instantly-shoppable website full of editorial content about chicsters and how they live. In today's installement, Jebreal talks about making flashcards, her love of Alaia, and reminds us that "information is knowledge." Savor the entire video, please.

Situations and Salutations with Emily Current and Meritt Elliott

LA Times! LA Times!

It's almost upon us, loves! We're losing an hour of sleep this weekend, but we're gaining more SUNLIGHT! Stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott join us in wearing a happy face about that. This week they check in from the West Coast to give their tips on what to do with a little extra sun in your life if you're Los Angeles bound.

Dear Daylight Savings,

You couldn’t have come at a better time! We have shelved so much of our social life during these darker days, and now (with an extra hour of sunlight!) we plan on emerging from hibernation. Here are the top five things we are looking forward to tackling:

Sunset Marquis...for sundown cocktails
Quietly nestled below the creative chaos of Sunset Boulevard, we have found a bit of respite on the Sunset Marquis outdoor patio. Famous for rock n roll patronage and adorned with musical memorabilia and photographs, it is surprisingly peaceful, quiet, and melodically inspired. 1200 Alta Loma Road, West Hollywood

Laemmle’s Music Hall
If you, like us, watched the Oscars for the fashion, but missed most of the movies in the theaters, this little gem of a theater is still showing some of the nominated films. 9036 Wilshire Boulevard

Café Alcove...for bread pudding and raspberry tarts
Yum. Yum. Yum. Outdoors, casual and simply delectable. You’ll also inevitably run into someone you know (and like). 1929 Hillhurst Avenue, Loz Feliz

The LA Marathon...for either exercise or admiration
If you don’t have it in you to run absurd distances with thousands of sweaty people, we highly recommend being a spectator. We’ve made it a ritual to grab sugary lattes and sit street side as these amazing athletes run. You will be astonished by the almost tangible perseverance and the contagious will of people of all ages and sizes.

The Dry Bar...for inexpensive luscious locks
Treating yourself to a regular blowout should be a mandated warmer- weather obligation. You can simply make an appointment through an app on your phone and the whole shebang only costs $35. Not only will you be grateful for your silky, TV-ready hair, but also it may just inspire you to do one, or more of the above. 11677 San Vicente Boulevard, Brentwood

Your spring-ready friends with love & style,
Emily & Meritt

It's the golden boy! Anna Wintour looks perfectly pleased to walk into the Stella McCartney show in Paris this morning with a jolly-looking André Leon Talley in tow. André has been making fewer and fewer appearances at shows in recent seasons, so it's always good to see his familiar face rocking the front row again. Don't stay too far away, boo!

Things to Discuss: Fash Week Photogs Take on the Bloggers!

Have we been spending too much time analyzing the front row? Perhaps! The Observer has stumbled on an intriguing offshot of the blogger backlash happening in the photo pit, of all places. Turns out that the seasoned photogs shooting runway for your favorite glossies aren't exactly thrilled about the rise of the blogger (and his or her Instagram shot) that's leading to a fight for riser space and backstage access. One fash week vet has even drafted a "letter of grievance" to send to, well, we're not exactly sure. But hey! As for the PR response to the struggle? "We love, we love, we love glossy magazines. But the bloggers are reaching a different demographic, and it really is helping the reach of these designers,” PR Consulting cutie (and Daily fave) Flint Beamon told the Observer's Nitasha Tiku. “It’s in the best interest that everybody tries to get along. Obviously this is not the case.”

In 1972, Cosmopolitan UK launched under the helm of former Sun editor Joyce Hopkirk. All 350,000 copies of the first issue sold out in 24 hours, thanks to the help of a saucy TV commercial by Saatchi & Saatchi touting a publication for "women who are interested in men, love, fashion, food, men, travel, films, beauty and themselves … and men." Check out the proof below!
