I adore the poster for the 66th edition of the Cannes Film Festival: a couple who embody the spirit of cinema like no other and one of the truest love stories of Hollywood: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, photographed during the shooting of A New Kind of Love (1963), by Melville Shavelson. For the Festival it is a chance both to pay tribute to the memory of Paul Newman, who passed away in 2008, and to mark its undying admiration for Joanne Woodward, his wife and most favoured co-star. “Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat.” (Joanne Woodward)

• I never get tired of hearing Martin Scorsese talk about movies: “I feel we must always, always expose the younger generation to the films of the past… Otherwise culture, everything will be forgotten… Why wipe out the moving image as an art form that means something in this society?”
• Fabulous Claire of Fashion and Frank is soon to launch her very own fashion brand, “one of tradition and heritage, all British, made in England, that speaks stealth style with an edge”. I can not wait to see Claire’s first collection, “A Very British Summer”
• Christian Lacroix to design couture collection for Schiaparelli
• Audrey Hepburn’s Roman street style: I have a crush on her sunglasses
• I had fun reading these top 20 Julia Child quotes
• A light, healthy snack that’s becoming a favourite in our home: carrots with sesame and ginger (scroll down), from Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cook book, It’s All Good
