Now, Strike A PAUSE

It's August... I's warm and sunny... and usually very slow in Belgium! Yeah, probably the best time to make a break from posting onto our blog.
Let's our beloved web diva-ah-ah [a.k.a Ariane van der Veen] have a two weeks vacation totally disconnected from any kind of access to the internet. We even wonder if she's going to survive to this ordeal... Sounds very 'Mission Impossible' to us... Well, you'll find out on August the 17th... Stay tuned!
Note; as a matter of fact, Ariane never came back! We wish her good luck!

Bucolic Chic or not, have a good one...

Alexandra & Her Diploma

We won't say it enough! The best way to tackle a modelling career is only after you've a high school diploma in your pocket! That's exactly what Alexandra Hoste did!
We know her for a long time now but never distracted her from finishing school and there she is, incredibly pretty and graduate! Congrats Miss! & congrats to Ercan for shooting that nice portrait! We like a lot!

Twiggy's Back!

Good to see her back for another Olay campaign! She's about to turn 60, so beautiful and such an icon. When she began modelling, back in 1966, she was told for sure that a career was very short! That is what we kept on telling to the girls until the mid-90's...

Since we have opened a Classic Department! It's so cool to work with models we know since they were teenagers, such as Laurence VH, Steevie or Sylvie Van Marcke!

Fierce As Lacroix

Yes again, Hanne Gaby Odiele was the first face of Christian Lacroix's latest show. Let's just hope that it is not Lacroix's very last show as the Couture House is into receivership since mid-June . Christian-The-Fierce was strong enough to put up this show. As he said himself*: "This show is not a funeral, it is a fightback".

Sales Craziness Remedy

We, the most evolved and intelligent living beings, are capable of buying shoes that actually are too small for a 30% discount on the price tag?!! Yes... And we are clever enough to know that no monkey would do such a stupid thing... And there we are, proud owner of those gorgeous pumps to die for and/or from the self-inflicted pain of wearing them... Well, there is hope! Good tip in this video;

Hey Mickey!

Here is a reportage of our friends from Fashion TV. It's all about Jeremy Scott last collection presentation. We like it for three reasons:
- It's always good to see shots of Paris, it's such a pretty photogenic city
- We always liked Jeremy Scott's designs and we really appreciate the colors and fun he brought to this collection, especially NOW. It's like we need it.
- Because we get to see Hanne being interviewed by the end of the second minute. Backstage cameras just love this girl too!

Long Time No Post

Alban look's changes always go beyond our expectations. And it such a long time since the last blog update, that this is what we call a major one.

To quote Mister-Master-To-Dye-For-Alban " Black is to relieve my hair from the pink color I had for so long"... Can't wait for next time! And you?

The Family Game

In the Rodriguez family, I want to see Philippe the father, Michel the Grand Father, Simon the son and Coraline the cousin... They are actual relatives and all appear in this very pretty CNP commercial.
Directed by Koen Mortier, the concept is 'reversed life'. It's in French but you don't have to speak it to get the story. Not to mention the great adaptation of Chostakovitch Waltz, this film is a big success ... and yet another WONDER BOOKING from our people department.

Full Asian House

With Lisa back from Cambodia & Ildiko from Japan, the full booking team is back to work with an Asian vibe. Here is a summary of Asian beauty tips they brought back ;

For your skin: Bamboo for remineralization, ginseng as energizer, green tea for radiance, reishi to scrub rinkles, yuzu to protect, shiitake to boost defenses, rice extract as anti-aging and soybean to stimulate collagen production. And white skin is an Asian-must, so think about sun protection.

Anouk Is A Groupie

She walked hundreds of miles on European runways, but she would RUN a greater distance across Europe to get to see all the DEPECHE MODE's concerts. So fare, she has tickets to attend to 9 of them!

Bad & sad news: Depeche Mode's singer, David Gahan, is recovering from an emergency surgery. The first concert in Dusseldorf is postponed...

We hope David will get better very soon. Our thoughts, (and especially Anouk's ones) are with him and his family of course.
