The Fashion Legend

He made my first time singing in Paris a rare and beautiful treat.

He and his wonderful partner, Pierre Berge’, were some of the wittiest most self effacing, charming people I would ever know. My heart breaks for Pierre today.

The passing of Yves Saint Laurent.

A genius. One of my favorite minds for fashion. Part of a world of class and style unrivaled.

He will be so very missed.

Explanation: What is that inverted rainbow in the sky? Sometimes known as a fire rainbow for its flame-like appearance, a circumhorizon arc is created by ice, not fire.

For a circumhorizon arc to be visible, the Sun must be at least 58 degrees high in a sky where cirrus clouds are present.

Furthermore, the numerous, flat, hexagonal ice-crystals that compose the cirrus cloud must be aligned horizontally to properly refract sunlight like a single gigantic prism.

Therefore, circumhorizon arcs are quite unusual to see. Pictured above, however, a rare fire rainbow was captured above trees in Whiting, New Jersey, USA in late May.
