Top The Beatles in A Hard Day’s Night, 1964. Above George Harrison marries Pattie Boyd in 1966.

Catalina Island, California
Hard to believe it’s been a half-century since the première of A Hard Day’s Night. To commemorate the date, the Catalina Island Museum will mount a special 50th anniversary screening of the legendary movie starring the Beatles on Sunday, July 6 in Avalon’s Casino Theatre at 7 p.m. Lucire loves the vintage déco interior. On hand to take questions will be author Pattie Boyd (right), who you can surely interrogate about her life and times as wife of George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and her best-selling memoir, Wonderful Tonight. Pattie exudes energy and personality, and loves to laugh. Watch for her in a famous scene which takes place on a train: she’s the blonde girl in a school uniform, who flirts with George.


Paris, France
A new website has launched this week which could simplify the task of finding lodging in this capital city: www.myboutiquehotel.paris/fr/. It looks like a pretty cleverly designed and attractive site, listing over 250 boutique hotels. You can select by price, star rating, location, nearby landmarks, areas of interest, but the kicker is the promise of a real live human being person available on the phone to assist you. We’d be interested to learn of anyone’s experiences with this site. Good luck with your launch!

Gurgaon, Haryana, India
While the city, population 20 million, stews under a layer of world-class pollution (mostly the by-product of wood fires), the problem of traffic compounds the subject. Gurgaon excels in congestion, and this week some like-minded technology companies are rolling out Folksvagn, a cheekily-named ride-sharing solution in the Palam Vihar and Sector 22–3 area. It’s also a vote of support for Gurgaon start-ups like our friends at Nagarro, one of a group deploying modern mindsets in the interest of transforming urban mobility with programmes like this. If you’re looking for a sustainable and socially responsible ride to work in Gurgaon, this may be your answer.

Punta Ala, Italy
This week, Baglioni reopens La Vela, a classic architectural monument originally known as a swinging disco in 1965. You can see its signature roofline on the very exclusive beach here. A glorious renovation transforms the space into a 160-seat restaurant and spa. Ideally situated among a cypress grove, with astounding views of the nearby islands Elba, Capraia and Pianosa, the airy infinity terrace promises to be an ideal location for sunset beverages and prime people-watching. GM Luigi Magnani promises ‘a soft club’ experience for evenings.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor

A gala presentation ceremony at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on the night of May 21 named Berlin-based photographer Michael Schmidt as the winner of the eighth annual Prix Pictet. The award endeavours to promote the message of sustainability to a global audience via the medium of photography. This year’s theme, Consumption, had a record number of applicants and was decided from a shortlist of eleven finalists. Schmidt’s assemblage of 60 photographs arrayed in a huge grid (finalists are given 21 m² of exhibition space), entitled Lebensmittel, engaged the tensions of food production and transport with a range of provocative images.
   The SFr100,000 award (US$112,000) was presented by Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the UN, and Honorary President of the Prix Pictet. Pictet Group, founded in 1805, is based in Genève. The award for Mr Schmidt, unable to attend due to illness, was accepted by Tate Modern director Chris Dercon.
   The finalists remain on exhibit at the V&A through June 14.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor

The hijinks of the Festival de Cannes begin today and we’ve already caught actress Nicole Kidman in a Francesco Scognamiglio dress (above) on the Riviera. We’ll have more highlights later today as we begin filing our reports from the world’s most famous film festival.
   In the main part of the Lucire site, don’t forget we’ve been serializing travel editor Stanley Moss’s novel, The Crimson Garter, now up to chapter 16. If you enjoy a good period yarn set in European locales, Crimson is very enjoyable and we will be publishing the final parts shortly. Meanwhile, in the real world, Stanley also goes in search of black truffles in France.
   Emma and Denis Merkas, a real-life Australian couple, believe in massage as a way to bring greater intimacy and trust in relationships. Their new online course, Melt: Massage for Couples, is very accessible, and you can find out more about it in our beauty feature here.
   We have Paris editor Lola Saab’s New York Fashion Week diary, along with her show reports; while publisher Jack Yan talks to Sheryl McPherson of Salisbury Boutique in Dunedin, one of the city’s most cutting-edge fashion retailers.
   Guest correspondent Peter Jobes test-drives the BMW i3, the pioneering electric car from the German brand. And you can order your copy of Lucire issue 32, in print and for tablets, here.

Adding to the goody bags at Miss Universe New Zealand’s Dunedin Stiletto Camps were handy Mini Cuticle Oil+ packs from Orly. The Orly brand is already well known to those who know their nails and want to keep them strong and healthy—and Orly’s colours are DBP-, formaldehyde- and toulene-free. The Mini Cuticle Oil+ nourishes dry cuticles and neglected nails, ideal for nail maintenance on the go.
   Oakley is celebrating its 30th anniversary with its Heritage Collection, with 1980s styling from its vault that, interestingly, doesn’t look out of place in a more tech-savvy 2014.
   Oakley’s Eyeshades, Razor Blades and Frogskins have a total of nine classic, retro offerings this season, with some contemporary touches.



   Living Nature’s anti-ageing range will help skin this winter, with its natural ingredients. There’s the Nourishing Night Cream (NZ$58 for 50 ml) with antioxidant-rich totara extract to fight skin damage caused by free radicals and rejuvenating active manuka honey; the Firming Flax Serum (NZ$52 for 13 ml) with active manuka honey and harakeke, the New Zealand flax plant, to hydrate and nourish skin; the Radiance Night Oil (NZ$90 for 10 ml) with calendula, jojoba, rosehip, rose petals, frankincense, and vitamins A and E to rejuvenate skin; the Rich Day Cream (NZ$39 for 50 ml) with active manuka honey attracting moisture and locking it in, and totara extract to reenergize skin; and the Firming Eye Cream (NZ$45 for 10 ml) to hydrate the skin around the eyes.
   What draws these together is their purity, certified natural by BDIH Germany, with no greenwashing or false environmental claims. Breast Cancer Network New Zealand has also endorsed the range. Visit www.livingnature.com or call 64 9 407-7895, or in New Zealand, 0508 548-464, for stockist info.

The Body Shop’s hand creams ideal for Mothers’ Day; vitamin E serum in oil refreshes skin

Lucire staff/14.11

For Mothers’ Day, the Body Shop’s range for the hands is ideal: the wild rose hand cream (SPF 15), the hemp hand protector, and the almond hand and nail cream. You can spot them at Body Shop stores by the smart metallic packaging.
   This trio is aimed at Mums who need some TLC for their hands: the wild rose hand cream has rosehip oil, Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil and Ghana shea butter, for hydrating mature skin and protecting it against brown spots. It has a lovely rosy scent, true to the product description, and absorbs quickly.
   The hemp hand protector—a Body Shop classic—helps moisturize and protect very dry skin, and contains Community Fair Trade hemp seed oil.
   Finally, our favourite of the three is the almond hand and nail cream, which is for all skin types. The ingredients are enough to make you salivate: it contains sweet almond oil, Ethiopian honey, Brazilian soy oil, Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil and Ghana shea butter. Its panthenol helps with moisturizing. The cream also conditions nails, and absorbs quickly, with a subtle almond scent.
   New for 2014 is the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil, which extends the company’s successful vitamin E range. The Body Shop promises the new product—which brings the power of a serum in a light, easily absorbable oil—will do for skin what a full eight hours’ sleep does for the body.
   The Body Shop’s own sampling shows that 84 per cent of respondents feel their skin is replenished come the morning, 75 per cent say it’s recharged, and 87 per cent say it’s softer. We find it is easily absorbed and it works wonderfully in the evening, as the company suggests.
   The oil has the highest concentration of wheatgerm oil across the Body Shop’s vitamin E range, helping with moisturizing. The wheatgerm oil is sourced from a UK supplier who can trace its source, bringing greater clarity in the supply chain. It also contains sunflower and jojoba oils, as well as marula, sesame and soya from Community Fair Trade farmers. RRP is NZ$44 for 28 ml at the Body Shop.

On the closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival, Keira Knightley was centre of attention as the lead in Begin Again, whose première was hosted by Chanel.
   Staying true to the brand she represents, Knightley wore a pastel green, mauve and white lamĂŠ bodice, embroidered with green, pink and light blue pearls, with a pastel green, mauve, white tulle and organza skirt, from the spring–summer 2014 haute couture collection. At the after-party, it was Chanel spring 2014 couture again, with an above-the-knee corseted dress in powder pink crepe, with slightly flared sleeves above the elbow.
   Staying with Europe: American Crew has held its global men’s grooming competition at the Meo Arena in Lisboa, where Jerome Kantner of Mainz won the 2013–14 All-Star Challenge, and is now recognized as one of the top men’s hairstylists in the world.
   The competition attracted 1,100 stylists from 18 countries, with the final seeing entrants from Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the US.
   â€˜Jerome’s look exudes classic American Crew with meticulous barbering skills and refined proportions,’ said Craig Hanson, American Crew creative director. ‘The wardrobe styling was fresh and masculine, and the art direction perfectly captured an authentic message of the modern man.’
   Judges were Raccuglia; Hanson; Sandra Nygaard, Senior Fashion and Grooming Director, Men’s Health; Sergi Bancells, General Manager USA, Spain and Latin America, Estetica; and Pedro JosĂŠ MuĂąoz, 2012–13 All-Star Challenge Global Champion.
   Meanwhile, Living Nature has also picked up an accolade. The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible has named its foundation its best, following on from acclaim in the Natural Beauty Awards 2014 in the UK. The Bible’s Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairley noted, ‘This is the highest score for a natural foundation in our books—an impressive achievement for the New Zealand brand’s 100% natural formulation.’

Sponsored video: Burt’s Bees’ lip colour’s at the trend forefront

Lucire staff/12.49

A Lucire special promotion


You don’t necessarily expect Burt’s Bees to be at the forefront of what’s in fashion, but this season, you may be proven wrong.
   This company, with its roots in Maine, best known for its beeswax lip balm, is bringing the same nature-first, socially responsible philosophy to lip colour, with its range of lip shimmer, gloss and shine. There’s even a tinted lip balm, which gives lips a hint of colour as well as 100 per cent natural moisturization.
   But what colour should one opt for? Burt’s Bees is letting its customers find out, by consulting a questionnaire by celebrity make-up artist Katey Denno. Denno has four simple questions on the Burt’s Bees website, and this will allow you to choose the ideal shade.
   The questions don’t even take that long to go through: the first three are on a single page, while the last asks whether you are up for an adventure or have a go-to shade.
   The best thing is that everything is responsibly made, with Burt’s Bees maintaining a small operational footprint, using sustainable packaging, and having a strict supplier code where human rights are at the forefront. Each year it still engages in community outreach, having planted urban gardens and built hive boxes for the recovering bee population.
   It has also established its own charity, the Greater Good Foundation, where it empowers inspiring grass-roots initiatives and supports sustainable agriculture. Its ethos still centres around a phrase in one of its first catalogues 20 years ago: ‘What’s right isn’t always popular. What’s popular isn’t always right.’
   You can find Katey Denno’s shade finder here.

Pandora knows the strong culture and following it has, and has invited select customers to join it for a cruise for the third year.
   The jewellery brand’s Unforgettable Cruise is a seven-day cruise where fans can get a sneak peek at the new collection, and experience a styling workshop with Janette Ewen, Pandora’s Canadian-based spokeswoman, and other leisure activities.
   They were joined this year by YouTube fashion and beauty hosts Meghan Rienks and Claudia Sulewski, to join customers in sharing their experiences with the brand, in person and through social media.
   Those attending the cruise were gifted an exclusive, two-tone Pandora charm.
   Its Mothers’ Day and spring collections can be viewed at its website.
   Living Nature has launched its Lip Hydrator with an RRP of NZ$29¡50 (left), a certified natural conditioning balm in a lipstick packaging. In addition to keeping lips moist—since they do not have self-lubrication—it can be used as a primer for lipstick to help with application.
   It uses active manuka honey along with plant butters and oils, to create a protective layer for lips. Carrot oil helps with smoothness and mica provides shine. The Lip Hydrator promises to be moisture-rich but does not leave a greasy texture on the lips. It is also literally safe to eat—in line with Living Nature’s other products, it contains no synthetic chemicals, preservatives or allergens.
   Stockists can be found via the Living Nature website or by calling, within New Zealand, 0508 548-464.
   Victoria Baron of MAP Creative Agency (right) is the first Chanel make-up artist for Australia and an official spokesperson for Chanel Australia, for beauty and fragrance, the company announced Thursday.
   Baron was chosen by Chanel’s Paris make-up studio team and is one of 20 new artists worldwide.
   The company says she ‘perfectly embodies the values of the House of Chanel; as a youthful and modern creative spirit.’
