All this Paris Fashion Week coverage has us yearning for holiday to revive ourselves in the city of love (or light depending on how you are inclined). Given the fact that the Eurostar will not be whipping us away across the Channel this weekend, we thought best to content ourselves with some of our favourite Paris images from the Vogue archives.
What's your favourite shot?

Duologue has long been one of our favourite bands, and they have just released their new single Underworld. It is a beautiful, haunting and uplifting track and is on repeat here at the moment - it seems to perfectly suit this recent change in weather.
Listen and be swept along to your weekend...
Oh my. We found the crochet work of Su Ami on a day where we are definitely in need of a dose of cuteness. And cuteness and Su Ami are definitely two things that are very closely associated.
Su Ami is a family of 5 Vietnamese crocheter's and their work is something to behold - the 'Micro Honey Bee' is their smallest piece which is made using sewing thread of only 0.2mm. Wowsers.
They have a huge amount of work available on their Etsy shop covering a wide and varied menagerie of crochet deliciousness. Perfect for that pet lover in your life that is low on space. Lovely.

It was an amazing summer full of major events such as the Olympics, the Queen’s jubilee, and the much less known British Street Food Awards.
While street food in Britain often conjures up thoughts of burnt sausages and tea out of a Styrofoam cup, there was nothing of the sort at The 2012 British Street Food Awards last weekend in London.
Taking over the paved East London Street which houses Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, the awards were not only a culinary treat with delights ranging from Mexican Tacos to more traditional English roast chicken. Also to be enjoyed was a Gin tasting tent, grass covered streets and a dance floor.
Our personal favourites were Ginger’s Comfort Emporium and Manjit’s Kitchen.
I think we’ve made it pretty obvious that here at Lucozade HQ we’re a little fashion obsessed, and that the athleticism and grace of ballerinas is something we aspire too so we were thrilled to discover that Valentino (yes, the Valentino) was going to be designing the costumes for the new season of the New York City Ballet.
The collaboration is a result of the three decade long friendship between Valentino and the Ballet’s director Peter Martins, and while the stilettos have been traded in to ballet points, the collection is still awash with everything we’ve come to love Valentino for – think full skirts, feathers, and of course red!
