For a wheel-y good time, call Citi Bike savant Constance Jablonski! The mod recently filled us in on her riding M.O. Whatâ€™s your favorite invention of 2013? Citi Bike. Are you into spinning, too?

Milliner Maison Michel Pops Up in Paris, Next Door to Chanel
Chanelâ€™s Paris HQ is getting a new neighbor, in the form of a Maison Michel pop-up shop. The first-ever retail location for the French milliner will be at 19 Rue Cambon, albeit only until March 2014.

Chic mommy alert! Julia Restoin Roitfeld filled us in at System mag's bash for their second issue last week on all matters of parenting. Turns out the stylish (and adorable!) apple doesn't fall far from the tree: Restoin Roitfeld's daughter, Romy, is bewitched by furs, has a fully-stocked closet, and counts "shoes" as one of her first words. (And she's not even two yet.) Making Carine proud, non?

Jennifer Lawrence Covers InStyle
America's sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence covers the December issue of InStyle and talks about her favorite foods. What's on the Lawrence menu? Baby back ribs, French fries, spaghetti Bolognese, and cheesesteak subs top her list. Clearly all that time spent in Los Angeles hasn't rubbed off on her just yet.

Roman Polanski Covers Vanity Fair France
How did we nearly miss this? While America eagerly awaits the upcoming Vanity Fair profile on Gwyneth Paltrow, the French have something else in mind.

Accessories Savant JÃ©rÃ´me Dreyfuss On Copyright Laws And His Brand's Evolution
Accessories maverick JÃ©rÃ´me Dreyfuss has been making bags for cool girls for over a decade (with a chic following much like that of his designer wife, Isabel Marant). Last year he launched a line of menâ€™s bags, and this season heâ€™s ventured into womenâ€™s shoes. Business is booming, but it hasnâ€™t always been easy. The Daily caught up with Dreyfuss at his studio in Paris to find what itâ€™s like fending off fast fashion copiers, what the French fashion industry is doing to solve the problem, and why Dreyfussâ€™s avoiding having an â€œitâ€ bag.
