On Pointe

Painting by Degas

LONDON: I am looking at Marie van Goethem, the ‘little dancer’ bronze by Degas at the Royal Academy (September 17 to December 11). I am still fascinated by ballet, especially after reading the book, “The Everyday Dancer” (Faber) written by Deborah Bull, the former creative director of the London Royal Opera House. She describes the punitive life of the dancer, from childhood to pas de deux to cruelly young retirement.

IRMA

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
