Have you met anyone wearing Versace for H&M yet?
I did. Meet Jake Hammel. We had a great time at Factory PR during the Mango presentation. He gave me a very good twitter lesson. I still need practice. He has something for colors. I love his Versace H&M shoes matching his pocket square. Life has to be fun so is fashion!

It’s a toy, it’s a candy,
No, it’s a fashion accessory!
I am having so much fun with the new Spring 2012 collections. On a fashion shoot for Marie Claire with Angela Lindvall, I am totally in love with Dolce, Prada and Chanel. Yikes, I better start saving!

Very high, the waist for the new jeans.
It was another fun party at the store. Every one tried a pair, drank some champagne and left happy with a new DLK DNM idem. I got the number 6 jeans in black. Sort of a Marilyn Monroe’s jeans from the 50’s reinvented for today. Sound strange but has to be tried. Once squeezed in , nothing moves, perfect to keep a flat stomach.

Some days, styling is like playing with Barbie dolls.
I had so many crystals, rhinestones jewels and shiny dresses that I kept adding as much as I could. More shine, more fun. I love the idea of pilling 3 or 4 of theses necklaces together. What’s wrong about looking like a Barbie once in a while?

I think some people do.
One of my most requested styling trick is this weird thing nicknamed chicken cotelettes. The best ones are found at Victoria Secret. Doubled with a patted bra, it’s impressive. That’s good for pictures but what happens when it’s time to get naked. Better not let them fall on the floor; they make a terrible floppy noise. I would say, a good thing to show off but to avoid on a date. Maybe?

You can always count on Olivier Theysken for magical dresses.
For Theory, he did it again. I put one of them on Leighton Meester for an editorial. She looked so pretty. The tulle is quite thick but reflects the light beautifully. There is a lot of princesses for Spring 2012. Good!

I love to hear everyone’s little tricks on shoots.
One of the big problem when you are on a boat is to avoid ending up looking like a cooked lobster at the end of the day. Of course, there is all the powerful sunscreens, heavy white creams like war paints. Not great if you are modeling… Josiah had the magic trick, a powder from Peter Thomas Roth. It’s a good one to know. What else from male model? Preparation H for the bags under the eyes if you party too much the night before. I know! Weird. But it works…

What would I do without my Canon?
We spend or should I say, waste, so much money on things that we don’t need, use or don’t reach our expectations. Years later, I am still happy with my YSL bag, Ipad/Iphone/etc, Hermes scarfs, Rolex watch,… The classics rarely let me down. So I want to add to the list of the worth-it things, my camera, the canon G12. I use it everyday, or more or less everyday. I guess when there is no post, the poor thing didn’t get out of the bag. It did today, competing with a fancy Leica.

It is snowing,
maybe, but I am working on Spring…In long beach (nothing glamorous about it, stuck at the Maya hotel with nothing else around).
And still playing with colors, I hope that will last for a very long ride. It helps everything from the sad black suit to the little summer dress…
