The most sex-symbol

Posters of divine marilyne and jakie an icon exhibition in Paris

A gallery. Two major exhibitions, on the women of a President. On one side, a new retrospective focusing on the highly mediatized First Lady Jackie Kennedy with more than 100 photographs of this fashion icon with her husband. On the other, an exhibition featuring the mythical Marilyn Monroe unveiled in a photo album of the Kennedy brothers’ favourite Blonde... from her early childhood to the famous "last session". A photo biopic to rediscover the Monroe myth.

Paris romantique 1815-1848 exhibition poster

Imagine yourself strolling in the Paris of Victor Hugo, next to the Palais-Royal courtesans and the frenzy of the Grands Boulevards, at the eve of the Belle Epoque. This is precisely what is offering the immersive exhibition Paris romantique, 1815-1848 at the Petit Palais, that is celebrating the effervescence and artistic bubbling of this era … In Real Life: you follow the course of a fanciful journey in this 19th century Paris that transports you in a costume film.

The most fashion

Back Side, dos a la mode exhibition posters at Bourdelle museum in Paris

Fashion-addicts will appreciate. It’s the fashion sensation of this summer. With « Back Side, dos à la mode », Palais Galliera signs a splendid beyond the walls exhibition at the Musée Bourdelle. On the programme: more than 100 silhouettes seen from the back that’s the theme from Martin Margiela to Chanel including Azzedine Alaïa and Yohji Yamamoto, unveiling a series of accessories evolving with time, and it’s very funny. Spotlight piece: the famous dress worn by Mireille Darc, created by Guy Laroche, that highlights a stunning low back. And while we are there, we take advantage of this furiously romantic and preserved garden that shelters the former painter’s workshop.

Back Side, dos à la mode until the 17th of  November full rate €10

Musée Bourdelle, 18, Rue Antoine Bourdelle 75015, Paris

Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm except on holidays

The most powerful woman

Better than a biography, the Musée d’Art et d’histoire du judaïsme is dedicating an exhibition to the incredible Helena Rubinstein retracing the fascinating saga of this woman with the avant-garde slogan: “Beauty is power.” From her poverty stricken childhood in Cracovia, to her exile in Australia and the success of her first face cream in 1902.

“The Empress of beauty,” according to Cocteau, conquers the world and becomes a philanthropist, art collector, friend of the leading artists from her generation. There again, the destiny of a very special woman.

"Helena Rubinstein, l’aventure de la beauté” until the 25th of August – full rate 10

Musée d’Art et d’histoire du judaïsme 71, Rue du Temple, 75003 Paris

Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
