Miranda Kerr reading in school hall. Numéro #114, June 2010, La Mauvaise Éducation. Photographer: Greg Kadel.
Miranda Kerr keeps adding to her impressive list of editorial spreads, this time round for an eclectic shoot in Numéro. The Australian beauty proves she’s more than just a Victoria’s Secret Angel by ditching the frilly knickers in exchange for some seriously wacky nun-inspired outfits.
The Organ Rehearsal (1885). Henry Lerolle (French, 1848-1929). Oil on canvas. Met.
Set in the choir loft of the church of Saint-François-Xavier in Paris, it features members of Lerolle’s intimate circle, including his wife (bare-headed) and her sisters, in fashionable matching hats; his brother-in-law, composer Ernest Chausson, plays the organ. The painter himself gazes outward at left. Shown at the Salon of 1885. One critic recalled, “spectators … spoke low before it, as if waiting for … the voice of the singer to be heard.”
Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov (Алекса́ндр Васи́льевич Суво́ров, r Aleksandr Vasil‘evich Suvorov; 24 November [O.S. 13 November] 1729 or 1730 – 18 May [O.S. 6 May] 1800), Count Suvorov of Rymnik (граф Рымникский), Prince of Italy (князь Италийский), Count of the Holy Roman Empire, national hero of Russia, was the last Generalissimo of the Russian Empire.
OH MY WORD! I found more footage from La Révolution Française — yes, Boublil and Schönberg’s 1973 rock opera (the only other clip I know of is this).
Yes, before they wrote Les Mis, they wrote the song “Chouans, en avant” which became a #1 hit on the French charts.
#sounds like a drinking song
Oh I know! I could never figure out why that song was the hit. There are so many beautiful songs in that show. Such as: "Quatre Saisons Pour un Amour."
Well, drinking songs are actually a big thing in France (or used to be, I don’t know if it’s still the case…).
I mean, this is the song that remained #1 for 13 weeks in 1987 and sold like 1 million copies in France.
Maybe it was popular because the song expresses anti-French Revolutionary sentiments?
