WHEN IN PARIS: Few kids get to lunch out at the Elysée Palace. That was one of the treats in store for Sasha Obama and her older sister, Malia, who accompanied their parents to the City of Light over the weekend. The President and First Lady were in France to attend an event honoring the 65th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy on Saturday — where she wore a Narciso Rodriguez dress under a Michael Kors coat, while French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy opted for an equally pale dress by Christian Dior. But the Obamas’ whistle stop visit to Paris also was filled with plenty of sightseeing — and a spot of shopping. Having flown in prior to President Obama’s arrival, Michelle Obama treated their daughters to a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower Friday night (the hip mom was dressed in a “mouthwash” green Rick Owens jacket, accessorized with a scarf by Prova and those Lanvin sneakers). Amidst visits to other cultural Paris sites, such as the Pompidou Center and the Louvre museum, the Obama sisters, who are on school holiday, also got a tour of Bonpoint’s sprawling flagship on Paris’ Rue de Tournon, a brand spokeswoman confirmed. And, while the President jetted back to America, the First Lady and daughters scooted quietly over to London on Monday, where Michelle Obama had a private meeting with Sarah Brown, wife of the British prime minister, after which the three Americans had a whirlwind tour of the British capital. And now it’s Tuesday, so, according to the classic movie, Belgium must be next?

YES, WE KANE: Topshop’s third designer collaboration will be with London designer Christopher Kane. Consisting of 39 pieces, it will include clothing alongside accessories and shoes, and will launch in September during London Fashion Week.
