Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Oh-là-là with ten exclamation points! Perfect chemistry: Dior Addict + Dutch supermodel Daphné Groeneveld channeling Bardot + Saint Tropez + Jonas Åkerlund's vision = Magnifique!


Dior video: DIOR ADDICT Fragrance [Director's cut] AND DIOR CREATED ADDICT

Oh-là-là with ten exclamation points! Perfect chemistry: Dior Addict + Dutch supermodel Daphné Groeneveld channeling Bardot + Saint Tropez + Jonas Åkerlund's vision = Magnifique!
Oui, la chimie parfaite!  

And Jonas Åkerlund devising the idea of her as Brigette Bardot circa 1956, that's f-ing genius!

jmannen77 video: ...And God Created Woman (1956)

There's no substitute for serendipity, breakaway speed, Bloomington, Indiana in the Fall, letting the facts speak for themselves, lasagna and... perfect cotton candy pink lips!

Some recent Paris Match articles and photo archives of Brigette Bardot:

And take a look at her on the cover of Elle (France) in 1955, the year before the film came out:

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!! 12 exclamation points

Yes, presaging Julia Ormond!

Dior's website, newly-renovated earlier this month, is, in a word: AWESOME!  http://www.dior.com/home/en_us/




Closest location to Hallandale Beach for Dior products is the Nordstroms at Aventura Mallhttp://shop.nordstrom.com/st/nordstrom-aventura

Director Jonas Åkerlund's website http://www.jonasakerlund.com/ 


The last Daphne your faithful blogger concerned himself with was also from Holland, die Nederlands, mid-1980's University of Miami ace diver Daphne Jongejans
Brains, talent and beauty in perfect proportion 

Yes, back when U-M's women's athletics was fun -and relevant.

Speaking of Coral Gables, ever see the photo of Brigette Bardot that's at The Biltmore Hotel?
Oh-là-là with a dozen exclamation points!
Again!

Me in the Summer of 2016

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
