(She’s basically Brazil’s unofficial mascot.) But every so often, girls just want to go dark.

“It took a phone call and he said, ‘OK, I’m in.’ ” The first Louis Vuitton Cup, to determine which of the challengers will face the defender of the America’s Cup, was held in 1983. That first race marked a turning point in the history of the America’s Cup, as an Australian team skippered by John Bertrand wrested the Cup from the New York Yacht Club and ended America’s 132-year winning streak. This year represents the 30th anniversary – and eighth regatta – of the Louis Vuitton series. Round-robin qualifying races begin Sunday, and continue until the start of the semifinals on Aug. 6, with the finals running from Aug.

The video showed monks, one of them Pu Nenkham, sporting fashionable mirrored shades and using wireless headphones on board the private plane. The clip also prompted the Office of National Buddhism’s director-general Nopparat Benjawatananun to warn the monks not to repeat the lavish behaviour, and there are plans for the watchdog to begin monitoring monks across Thailand. Pu Nenkham is also the focus of a money-laundering investigation, with a police colonel, Pong-in Intarakhao claiming that the abbot, along with others, had 41 bank accounts filled with cash from public donations to his monestry, with the accounts mostly in his name. Colonel Pong-in Intarakhao has also claimed that the monk owns two houses, as well as an incredible 13 cars and motorbikes. The abbot is currently believed to be in Europe, and has been ordered to return to his home country within the next 30 days by Mr Benjawatananun. Accused: Pu Nenkham, who is abbot of the Khantitham Forest Monastery in north eastern Thailand, is allegedly married to a woman called Yupinpraethong Janthawa Under suspicion: He has also been accused of being a fake, and wearing the religious robes despite not being entitled to do so – a criminal offence in Thailand Thailand has attempted to help Buddha’s 2,600-year-old doctrine stand the test of time through a variety of means, including imposing a ban on the sale of alcohol on religious holidays. The efforts, however, are sometimes tainted by the monks themselves. Last year, about 300 out of 61,416 Buddhist monks and novices in Thailand were reprimanded – in several cases removed from the monkhood – because of their misconduct, ranging from alcohol consumption, having sex with women, to extortion. The office also received complaints about monks driving cars, and scams and false claims of black magic uses by monks. Mr Nopparat has said the monks in the video were acting ‘inappropriately, not composed and not adhering to Buddha’s teachings of simplicity and self-restraint’.

(Christophe Karaba / July 27, 2013) By Adam Tschorn July 1, 2013, 1:10 p.m. For spring and summer 2014, the Louis Vuitton man was indulging in the time-honored tradition of the West Coast American road trip, men’s studio and style director Kim Jones and artistic director Marc Jacobs explained in the show notes. “The collection is really about the freedom of the road and that freedom itself being luxurious, Jones says in the notes. The clothing should have that do-what-you-want attitude. Its a road trip drawing on elements of classic American culture from clothes, music to souvenirs. Its the changing environment from city to forest to desert, that journey in a day from snow-covered mountains to cacti in the desert that you can only really seem to have in America. Like the radio you listen to as you travel through the states. Based on what we can suss out from the show photos, that inspiration took to the runway in the form of a motorcycle-meets-letterman-jacket silhouette; some versions sporting a bold, tufted V logo on the left breast (awarded for lettering in runway, perhaps?), others a stylized yacht-club-meets-semaphore flag logo. (The other iconic jacket of the American rebel — the denim jacket — was also in evidence.)
