Mulholland Drive inspires a Parisian club

David Lynch aficionados will soon have a new temple to worship at. The cult auteur's latest project is designing a club in Paris. Club Silencio gets its name from the fictional establishment featured in Lynch's lauded 2001 movie Mulholland Drive. Lynch has designed the entire interior of the club, including some striking pieces of furniture. A surreal wooden-speaker stack seems to resemble a nightmarish appropriation of the face of a child's cuddly toy – the eyes being the two circular speaker cones. He's also designed several bespoke chairs and an asymmetrical double sofa, footstool and side- table combination.

From giant gems to huge homes: Taylor's billion-dollar legacy

It is a fortune that even Cleopatra might have blushed at. Elizabeth Taylor, who immortalised the amorous pharaoh in the lavish 1963 movie of the same name, died leaving behind enough money to buy a pyramid or three of her own with personal riches estimated at up to $1bn (£625m), it was claimed yesterday.

Elizabeth Taylor: A life less ordinary

The death of Elizabeth Taylor has been heralded as the end of an era. Why don’t today’s stars shine as brightly? Steve Rose says it’s not just the pictures that got small

Julie Burchill: Farewell then, Liz. You knew your beauty was a fuel

With the death of Elizabeth Taylor, the last of the Hollywood greats is finally gone. True to form – never a lady, barely ever a girl – this tough broad supreme battled on against ill-health for decades after her contemporaries overdosed on barbiturates, booze and self-loathing. And at a time when professional beauties seem terrified to show any sign of ageing lest they be shunted into character cameos in favour of some fresher flesh, Taylor was fascinating for being far less interested in leaving a good-looking corpse than in wringing every drop of the juice from every inch of the ride.

Henderson warms to Burton's work ethic

After a late night in Mayfair, at the Cartier Awards, Nicky Henderson could probably think of better ways to spend his morning than he did yesterday. For a start, his vantage point down the all-weather gallop was flayed by a savagely cold wind. In summer sun, the Berkshire downland here unfurls in a golden tide; now it lay trapped, muddy and murky, under heavy grey skies. Not even this, however, was sufficient to discourage a claustrophobic inquisition.

An Inner Silence: The Portraits of Henri Cartier-Bresson

C-B's book of portraits Tête-à-Tête came only six years ago. However, this selection, from an exhibition at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, has the edge in both design (usually a single picture to a double spread) and reproduction (tritone instead of duotone).
