I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 14 collection, Paris; See the entire collection here.

Always personally a step late on fashion news, from start to finish this show was the usual Marc, a succession of delight: glimpses of pink coming through the queue into the show, the French maids that brushed the staircases Finalewith ostrich-feather dusters, and the near-complete darkness behind the doors. Almost too dark – guests were thumbing their phones, not to join the tweeting, but in attempts to illuminate the corridor to the showspace. Then came the hotel porters with mini torches, briefly lighting up the invitations and informing left or right in French. To the left, there was a black fountain that spewed water, also black in the light; to the right, a black carousel, flanked by two wrought-iron elevators each guarded by two doormen. A trainstation clock shone through the black horses of the carousel, its light gently riding down a pair of double escalators under. Upstairs, the corridor was studded with dark hotel doors. It was all too strange and familiar, and yet in my blissful ignorance, was a delight to me.

The clock counted down 60 seconds at exactly 10:00am, and unseated guests scrambled to find a corner in the dark. The models walked out balancing a Stephen-Jones designed ostrich headpiece, donning a collection that swung from glittery showgirl, to punk, to sports (of the rugby sort). The occasional denim, and the barely-there thongs. The choreography took the models through each of the landmarks, striding through the Mongolian lamb rugs, a ride on the carousel, then up the escalators, down the corridor, and down the elevator. At on point it felt like a funeral, a thought I’d quickly brushed aside before training my long lens back on a dress. At the end, Marc Jacobs , and across the floor I saw Anna Wintour starting a wave of standing ovation across the first and second row. The news reached me only as the lights came back on and the seats were emptying, during a frustrated attempt to upload a tweet, and accidentally reading others. Then everything just clicked. I feel a little foolish to have experienced it all in complete oblivion, but on hindsight, I think it made it all the more special – Marc’s last show, a grand compilation of the past seasons, a final mix-tape of sorts and something to remember for years to come.

  40. Originally scheduled for launch Feb. 12, Discovery has been repeatedly delayed, first by problems with suspect flow control valves in the system used to pressurize the shuttle’s external tank and again on Wednesday by a leak in a gaseous hydrogen vent line.Based on past repair experience, a seal in the vent line system must be tightened down after reassembly and allowed to sit for an extended period to correct for possible misalignments during installation. That would have delayed launch to Monday. But engineers decided today they could properly torque the seal in place faster than that, and mission managers opted to press for a Sunday launch.While the astronauts will have to eliminate one of their planned spacewalks in order to complete the docked mission by March 25, NASA managers decided to add a day of off-duty time after undocking to give the astronauts a bit of a break before landing back at the Kennedy Space Center on March 28.Here’s the revised flight plan timeline:Fl Day..DATE….EVENTMarch 15 Launch (Flight Day 3 docking):FD-01…03/15…Launch at 7:43:44 PMFD-02…03/16…Heat shield inspectionFD-03…03/17…DockingFD-04…03/18…S6 solar array truss unberthingFD-05…03/19…EVA-1 (S6 solar array truss installation)FD-06…03/20…Focused inspection (if necessary)FD-07…03/21…EVA-2FD-08…03/22…S6 solar array extensionFD-09…03/23…EVA-3FD-10…03/24…Logistics transfersFD-11…03/25…Undocking/late inspectionFD-12…03/26…Off-duty timeFD-13…03/27…Entry prepsFD-14…03/28…LandingDiscovery must be off the ground by Tuesday or the flight will be delayed to around April 7. But a launch Monday would force the crew to eliminate two spacewalks while a Wednesday takeoff would require the elimination of three EVAs in order to ensure an undocking on March 25.An updated flight plan, countdown timeline and other mission information will be posted as soon as possible.Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:POST-SCRUB NEWS CONFERENCE VIDEO:DISCOVERY IN THE PREDAWN DARKESS VIDEO:WEDNESDAY’S ROLLBACK OF PAD GANTRY VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE OF PAD GANTRY ROLLING BACK VIDEO:THE PRE-LAUNCH NEWS CONFERENCE VIDEO:ASTRONAUTS ARRIVE IN FLORIDA FOR LAUNCH VIDEO:POST-ARRIVAL COMMENTS FROM THE CREW VIDEO:FLIGHT READINESS REVIEW BRIEFING VIDEO:SECOND LAUNCH POSTPONEMENT BRIEFING VIDEO:NARRATED MISSION OVERVIEW MOVIE VIDEO:MEET SHUTTLE DISCOVERY’S ASTRONAUTS VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH COMMANDER LEE ARCHAMBAULT VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH PILOT TONY ANTONELLI VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH MS1 JOE ACABA VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH MS2 STEVE SWANSON VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH MS3 RICKY ARNOLD VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH MS4 JOHN PHILLIPS VIDEO:INTERVIEW WITH MS5 KOICHI WAKATA VIDEO:NASA OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE LAUNCH DELAY VIDEO:SPACE STATION’S VIBRATIONS DURING REBOOST VIDEO:INFORMAL NEWS CONFERENCE AT RUNWAY VIDEO:ASTRONAUTS ARRIVE FOR PRACTICE COUNTDOWN VIDEO:DISCOVERY POSITIONED ATOP PAD 39A VIDEO:EARLY MORNING ROLLOUT FROM THE VAB VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE MOVIE OF DISCOVERY ARRIVING AT PAD 39A VIDEO:DISCOVERY HOISTED FOR ATTACHMENT TO TANK VIDEO:CRANE ROTATES DISCOVERY VERTICALLY VIDEO:DISCOVERY MOVES TO ASSEMBLY BUILDING VIDEO:NOSE WHEEL LANDING GEAR RETRACTED VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE MOVIE OF DISCOVERY GOING VERTICAL VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE MOVIE OF ASSEMBLY BUILDING CRANE WORK VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE MOVIE OF DISCOVERY’S TRIP TO VAB VIDEO:TIME-LAPSE MOVIE OF PAYLOAD’S MOVE VIDEO:SHUTTLE AND STATION PROGRAM UPDATE VIDEO:STS-119 MISSION OVERVIEW BRIEFING VIDEO:PREVIEW BRIEFING ON MISSION’S SPACEWALKS VIDEO:THE ASTRONAUTS’ PRE-FLIGHT NEWS BRIEFING MORE:Final Shuttle Mission PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The crew emblem for the final space shuttle mission is now available in our store.
