Chestionarul lui Proust revizuit și corectat de Oltin Dogaru

Pentru primul chestionar al lui Proust pe anul acesta, am o mică surpriză. Una dintre cele mai faine întâlniri ale mele din 2016 a fost cu siguranță cea cu fotograful Oltin Dogaru (care a avut loc grație Neliei Porut). Un om foarte atent, generos, cald și săritor cu care poți vorbi despre tot felul de lucruri frumoase ore în șir. Mi-a plăcut și pentru că își adoră cățelușa (pe care o aduce la shootinguri, iar dacă nu este la o ședință foto când…

The first carbon dress constructed like a beemer: the interview with the designers

I say a lot that a car is “sexy”. And usually I say it about a dress, too. But if a dress would be not just as sexy, but as resistant and daring as the most innovative car? Therefore, when I found out that a couple of designers created a dress using the same carbon fibre found in the BMW i3 and BMW i8, I wanted to talk to them. And I asked Felder & Felder sisters about the process and their…

Un walk of shame asumat

În general prefer să-mi petrec diminețile fără să fac abuz de simț estetic. Adică, pe românește, prefer să-mi mai dorm cele 10 minute în plus până la următoarea alarmă în loc să îmi înșir țoalele pe pat ca să le combin în fel și chip. Uneori se mai întâmplă și ca lucrurile să fie pe dos. Fie pentru că am fost blestemată și nu pot să-mi continui somnul dulce, fie că puțin noroc își face loc și în viața mea…

Happy birthday, Madge

As a teenager I had a fascination with Madonna like a lot of other girls my age – she had no voice, was not a beauty, no particular artistic talent beside being very bold and dressing in a great way long before she got surrounded by stylists or fashion designer friends to polish her choices and looks.  Of course I would have loved to shock and get dressed like her in class, but at 10 years old that would have been…

Once upon a time, there was Alain & Romy

This is a couple who always will make us dream and wonder – what if they married? Inspiring, talented and utterly romantic, I think for many of us Alain Delon and Romy Schneider will always be one the perfectly iconic couple, even if “iconic” is an overrated and much too used word to explain a person, a state of mind, a model or a style, a statement or someone’s reality. What if they could do another movie together after “La…

To Alt or not to Alt – Casta’s cover for French Vogue

There’s a lot of talk about Laetitia Casta and Carine Roitfeld lately. Separately – Laetitia had a beautiful picture exhibition in Paris by fashion photographer Dominique Issermann while Mrs. Roitfeld is lauching in September her fashion biannual magazine CR, one year after her departure from Vogue. As the French issue of Vogue is out, the two names are remembered together this time. The corsican model is featured on the cover. And the new direction given by Emmanuelle Alt is clearly…

Helmut Newton — the Parisian retrospective

Paris got (finally) Newton! And not the minimal version, as more than 200 pictures signed by Helmut Newton, one of the major fashion photographers known for his highly erotic vision of women (and fashion), will be held between 24 March – 17 June at Grand Palais, in Paris. It is the very first retrospective dedicated to the artist (who left us in 2004) as well as the very first big retrospective of the photographer to be held in Paris. All…
