Karl Lagerfeld puts on a reflective yellow vest for a new French road safety campaign, declaring, “It’s yellow, it’s ugly, it doesn’t match anything, but it can save your life.”
Bloomberg reports, “Lagerfeld agreed to pose in the shapeless protective apparel as part of a French government safety-awareness campaign, which was kicked off yesterday. The vest and a reflective triangle will become mandatory for all drivers and cyclists on July 1. The number of traffic deaths in France jumped 10 percent to 346 in May, the highest since the beginning of the year, the Ministry of Environment said on its Web site. Two cyclists have died in Paris since the introduction of free municipal bicycles last year.”
After getting “Lost”, Maggie Grace ( The Fog) gets taken in Paris and sold into slave trade. Directed by Pierre Morel (Banlieue 13), Taken stars Liam Neeson as the father of estranged Grace and also a former spy. The plot sounds kinda “uh-uh” to me but with a cast like this, it makes me wonder if good acting and directing can make up for the plot.
Taken is written and produced by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen and shot in Paris. Expected to be released in France on February 27.
P.S. Am I the only one who miss Grace’s blond hair?
