The videos for both singles are a lesson of style and elegance. On "Bang Bang Bang", a video that successfully mixes aesthetics from the Mod 60s and Synth Pop/New Wave 80s, Mark Ronson wears a canary yellow double breasted suit, with a black shirt and golden tie underneath, paired up with a pair of tennis shoes. These are not plain tennis shoes, they're Rene Lacoste 1963s and feature a flourescent Lacoste Logo on the back.
For "The Bike Song", Ronson opts to wear black pants, a black and white striped t-shirt under a black jacket, and a pair of white Wayfarer inspired sunglasses, while riding his bike around town. Worth noticing is his bleached hair.

A love story that began in Deauville after Anne, who works as a film script, leaves her daughter in a boarding school and looses her train. She ends up returning to Paris with Jean-Louis, a sports car racer, who also has his son at the same school. Jean-Louis and Anne both lost their spouses years before.
After travelling to Deauville and spending a day there with their children, Anne & Jean-Louis fall in love. Jean-Louis participates in a car rally and after the race he goes immediately to Anne who happens to be again in Deauville. However despite being in love with Jean-Louis, Anne can't forget her late husband. She decides it's better to end their relationship and goes back to Paris. At the end of this film, Anne's train stops in a nearby town and she sees Jean-Louis waiting for her. The final sequence is quite a memorable one in cinema history.
"Un Homme et Une Femme" besides its plot is remembered for its shots in color, black & white, and sepia; and the great soundtrack composed by Francis Lai.
This film won the Grand Prix at 1966's Cannes Film Festival, as well as the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and Academy Award for Best Writing, Story, and Screenplay in 1967.

It may come as surprise that for their debut album The Clash only featured 3 members on the cover, yet one must remember that Terry Chimes had joined and left the band quickly. He was later replaced by Nick Headon.

While visiting Rome around 1966-1968, Curtis wearing a turtleneck with buttons on the sides, a medallion (they were worn a lot in the late 60s), and Gladiator sandals stopped by Gucci on Via Dei Condotti. This same ensemble can be worn this Fall/Winter, of course without the sandals.
