Chanel No. 5, the first perfume launched by Miss Coco Chanel herself, was created to bridge the gap between the two “types” of women who wore perfume and the types of scents they typically favored. Chanel No. 5 met them in the middle, where women could be sexy without necessarily being scandalous.

Cannes, the annual film festival in the south of France, kicked off a few days ago. While celebrities are out in full force with their glamorous gowns and tuxedos, the architecture of France is something almost out of a movie in its own right. Take the staircase at the Hotel Martinez, for example, a bustling hotspot for festival-goers and industry folk.
Put a little Cannes glam on your coffee table with this book, Cannes: Inside the World’s Premiere Film Festival.

Isn’t this GIF the greatest? It reminds us of old Disney cartoons from way back in the day. But never mind all that. What it really did was remind us of cooking… and that we need a few new pans. If you’re outfitting your new home or apartment, it’s worth checking out eBay for a vast selection of goods. You can pretty much find any kind you like. From eco-healthy ceramic sets to the coveted copper kind, we think eBay has whatever you’re looking for.

Too often we tend to favor simpler palates of neutral shades. But what if we dig into the archives and go for something a little more, well, gauche? Here, the wood paneled walls paired with the orange door and runner in the hallway might be a little much for modern tastes, but the massive piece of ’70s driftwood serving as a foyer table is still pretty spectacular even by today’s standards.

Since the beginning of his career in the early ’60s, British photographer David Bailey has been considered one of the best in the business, shooting everyone from Sir Michael Caine to The Beatles to Mick Jagger. His work was so impressive, in fact, he was contracted by Vogue at the ripe old age of 23. Though he is best known for his work capturing “swinging London” at its height, as well as his countless images of model Jean Shrimpton, Bailey is still around today, shooting for the likes of i-D Magazine and GQ.

Check out a few 1955 models available on eBay, one with a bid starting at $10,000.
