Weekend Links: Week 18

There’s reason for excitement in France right now, which I think will immediately be evident upon reading some of the articles in Weekend Links Week 18. A few of my top picks for the week are news that anyone over 18 can be vaccinated in France starting on June 15th, a look inside the making of Margot Robbie’s Oscars Chanel dress, pandemic lessons from the era of ‘Les Miserables,’ and 11 inspiring life lessons from the late Alber Elbaz. Enjoy!
