{divine idylle}

What better way to begin a new year than with a little romance? And after all the rather eventful holiday celebrations and New Year's festivities, was drawn to the cool, laid-back glimpses of this fashion editorial, styled after a day in the idyllic life of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis shot for French Glamour . . .

And while we're on the topic of romance, have you seen Joanna and Alex's
wonderful engagement photos?

New Year's resolutions: try to be much better with answering e-mails and to find more time for languid lounging . . .

THIS IS NOT JOHNNY DEPP AND VANESSA PARADIS! They were only models who look like them. Can't you people tell? Not even the children look like their children! They have blonde hair in real life! I have this issue, they are only models who look like them. And if any of you could read French, you would read they are not them also on the pages!

Hello Aidan, if you had read the earlier comments, you would see that we were discussing this very thing -- we know it's not Johnny and Vanessa, but models -- but thanks for your rather enthusiastic comment.
