a trompe l’oeil effect from jiang's blog

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. — It was far from the return Patrick party dresses for women Chan had envisioned, but still good enough to leave Canada’s three-time world champion within striking distance of gold.For his part, West wore a smart black tuxedo and black bow tie with close-cropped hair — a classic, toned-down outfit. Photos reveal that all of the wedding guests were dressed in black and white — all the better to photograph in — while Kardashian and West’s baby daughter, North, had a front-row seat for the nuptial action (she can be seen in the background of the photo showing the newlyweds walking down the aisle).It will be the first-ever meeting between the two Wimbledon champions on grass. The winner of the Murray-Tsonga match will reach his first Wimbledon final.Nishikori is playing at his first major since his run to the U.S.

Open, when he became the first Asian man to reach a Grand Slam singles final. He’s determined to go one better and win a major.In the first scene of Soulpepper’s The Royal Comedians we meet Molière, played by Diego Matamoros, giving a virtuoso display of crosstalk and pratfalls to acknowledge the presence of the most powerful and distinguished of patrons. The setting is Molière’s own Palais Royal theatre in 17th-century Paris; the patron is King Louis XIV, direct from his own royal palace. As he seems to like the show, this could be the great actor-dramatist’s proudest hour. The last scene will find him in disgrace and despair, literally dying on stage while playing? his own Malade Imaginaire, an ending too appropriate to be true, except that it apparently was. How did he get from there to here?The royal couple is on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.

Their itinerary includes seeing local wildlife holiday party dresses at Sydney’s harbour side zoo and travelling to Uluru, the iconic red sandstone monolith in the Outback.“He had an issue (Friday) with it and it was a tough day for him. But today at the morning skate he and the trainers said he was fine,” coach Mike Babcock said.His message was messianic and monumental: “We are on the edge of the biggest inflection point in our lives, bigger than the Internet. It’s not coming, we’re in it. People are moving from desktop to mobile. Another 2 billion will join the internet in five years, a doubling.”“There are two things I never get tired of ever since I was a child.

One is pizza and the other is eggs. It’s such a great thing if you cook it well.” And when he eats pizza, he tops it with an egg.“Through his tough, determined leadership and responsible fiscal stewardship, Ed helped lift the city out of its darkest days and set it on course for an incredible comeback,” Bloomberg said.Concomitantly, so would regular army leaders prefer the honorary colonel to toe their “one army” line and to advocate for the army as a whole, while reservist leaders want men and women who will fight for the unit, first and foremost, and for the perpetually under-attack militia.At a Soho hotel, I met representatives (as they like to be called) from Margiela’s atelier, and I peeked at what they’d produced. The collection — more than 70 garments and accessories — consists of “re-editions,” designs culled from the archives and manufactured by H&M. It reprises iconic pieces from the house’s 24-year history, and comes off like an introduction to deconstruction, with its belts made of watch parts and its cute cocktail dresses blazers built from the parts of other blazers. From the menswear rack I grabbed a grey suit jacket. It had trick lapels: They’d been fused to the body of the coat, creating a trompe l’oeil effect. It fit deftly, and I was surprised by how sturdy it was. Of the women’s wear, I loved the boots with Lucite heels, and the silver purses shaped like comically large foil candy wrappers. There was a dress designed to be worn sideways, and though I couldn’t follow the directions — put arm through skirt? Put head through armhole? — it looked strangely great and greatly strange. The big bash to launch the collection was held in an abandoned building across from City Hall Park. It was a beautiful place for a party: Built in 1882, the nine-storey atrium was ringed by balconies that rose to an iron and glass skylight. (It was also a terrible place for a party: Built in 1882, it had a single staircase, and a single elevator that only went as far as the fourth floor.)“Those who wrote the constitution are God-fearing men,” Mohammed Hassan el-Khatab, a bearded 52-year-old government employee, yelled as he stood in line outside a polling center in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria.First up was LYN, a crochet line. Many pieces were haunting sleeping bag coccoons, topped with hoods and snoods. Lomonova, mistress of draping and pleating, concentrated on show-stopping bustier gowns, with veins of ribbons defining the bodice and more ribbons as decorative straps on back and shoulders. The pieces take several very long days of labour to construct, and she intends to offer them as made-to-measure.
