When Carine Roitfeld left Paris Vogue, it was like we were free-falling in a cold, black abyss. To imagine this land without Carine at the helm of the Fashion Bible was like staring into a black crystal ball—or the eyes of Death. Was there to be no more Carine Street Style at the Paris shows? No more Carine-styled covers or editorials to rub against our cheeks? It was a whole new world, and one we didn't think we wanted to live in.
But we shouldn't have feared. Paris Vogue didn't make Carine Roitfeld, and it couldn't unmake her. After spending a ridiculously short time collecting herself and switching gears, the former editrix jumped right back into it. She started styling up a storm for V, Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy; she started modeling for Barney's, W, and i-D; she even announced that she was developing her own quarterly fashion magazine. And now, she's been hired by Karl Lagerfeld to style a second Chanel campaign. Carine Roitfeld is nothing if not in our faces.
Top Car, a Moscow-based tuning company just unveiled this beautiful Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR Crocodile model.
The stunning customized model comes with Stingray GTR bodykit which consists of new front and rear bumpers, a bulging hood, front and rear fender extenders, side skirts and modified front and rear doors. The package also features ADV.1 Ultra-light forged rims.
The amazing interior designed is made of a cabin outfitted with premium leather seats and authentic crocodile leather on the dashboard, center console and armrest. Elsewhere, there’s beautiful Karelian birch wood trim and gold accents which are applied on everything from the pedals to the window switches. At the back, the sun-roof panel, AC vents, side door handles have used the same patterned birch wood, and outlining with gold, which one might notice in the AC control buttons as well. The foldable seat and booting area too have been enveloped in white crocodile leather and hand-stitched to perfection. Just to take away the monotony, the seats belts in both areas are a classic racy red.
Overall, the upgrades have cost the owner 150 000 € (about 202 000 $). The TopCar Porsche Panamera Stingray costs a cool 423 810 € (about570 000 $). The Panamera Stingray GTR Crocodile will be a limited-run of only 25 copies.

what makes a Rolex Oyster an Oyster? The winding crown acts like a
screw-on cap, or micro jar-lid, and has watertight gaskets in it. The
best way to think of it is to imagine a submarine hatch that is threaded
and has to be twisted or spun open or closed.
1926, at age 45, Hans Wilsdorf had successfully designed, manufactured
and patented the waterproof Rolex Oyster. The challenge he faced was,
how to communicate the value-proposition of such a product?
came up with the idea of associating the fantasy of mermaids with the
waterproof Rolex Oyster as seen in the 1926 French Rolex advertisement
