3 years ago exactly, by a great sunny saturday morning of July, I went to shoot the king of stiletto Monsieur Louboutin himslef and Lea Seydoux. She was then a fully accomplished actress, but not the international superstar we know now… Cool vibes, they both know very well as Christian is Lea’s godfather and an old friend of the Seydoux family… I ask Lea to sit on Christian’s knees…and he proposed to change roles and to sit on her’s! Big giggles!!! I was very satisfied of this photoshoot. Unfortunately the big american mag I did it for didn’t publish it… And this is what you find when we tidy up your computer!! Was a good idea, no ?

So, it’s official now, I have the honor to introduce you #lesparticulescomplementaires, the new blogger collective made in France, with my 8 fellow partners: Tendances de mode, Café Mode, Ma Recreation, Make my Lemonade, Super by Timai, Shooooes, What Domino Wants and Veepost. For our launch, we have decided to do a collective post on WHITE! So each of us had to work on a post on the White theme. Oh my God, what am I going to do? Me, the queen of colors, prints, baroque and sequins, what can I do on WHITE ? I don’t even own a single white T-shirt, neither any white Converse, nor a white pair of jeans! Event my wedding gown was not white, but gold and cream-colored!!! OK, so I thought I had to give you my version of the white shirt, not the typical classy and masculine one… I will never belong to the androgynous club! I’m more into the crazy cow boy white shirt, the silky shiny one with hundreds of dangling fringes! (Thank you Chanel and the Paris-Dallas collection)! I adore the movement of the little fringes along my arms! I just feel hailing all the waiters and the cab drivers of the city! Finally, white color is not so bad, no ?

So I’m keeping up shooting the crazy people attending Chanel shows… And the last Couture show was as perfect as the others: clients, VIPs, and Karl. Everybody was there for my great pleasure.

So here we are, this is the reason why we have been invited to Chambord last week : the Peau d’Ane collection presented by Van Cleef & Arpels and inspired by the eponymous fairy tale. So the princess’s childhood at the castle, her flight into the forest and her marriage to the prince form the heart of a new collection of High Jewelry. The collection is a true success, and honestly, the pomp of the Chambord event didn’t cover the magnificence of the jewels. Photos by Olivia da Costa
