Not to miss.
Get a pair at the New Balance @ L’Imprimerie pop-up shop from May 1st – 23rd, 2010. Address: 16, rue Saint-Merri 75003 Paris, France. (Not a very French blue, and the blue and red should be reversed, but hey, we’re not complaining.)

In France, if you have a gap between your front teeth, they say you have les dents du bonheur (teeth of happiness). In this ad, the refreshingly imperfect dents du bonheur of chanteuse/actrice Vanessa Paradis are front and center and selling Chanel lipstick. It must be true, what they say: she is married to Johnny Depp, after all!
Trained for years and often intensely loyal to one fashion house, these women can be spotted backstage putting last touches on a dress with needle and thread, or watching the throng of models and dressers with quiet pride.
