This is Rose Valland, one of the heroes of Nazi-Occupied France. An employee of the Louvre, she kept records of the art stolen by Nazi officers—what was taken, from where, and by whom. She was instrumental in the postwar return of countless stolen pieces, and one of the most decorated women in French history.

This photo shows an old Yale commencement tradition. The Presentation Day custom was to bring pipes outside and smoke, and then set them upright and do a “stag dance” where they ran around and broke their pipes to seal their friendships.
Presentation Day evolved into Class Day, and while pipes are still distributed as per tradition, students now use them to blow bubbles and keep as souvenirs.
Love this photo of Carey Mulligan from the Cannes Film Festival
