I love this picture of a model back-stage at the ELLE gala. We were hanging out with the great stylist Robert Rydberg before the show, talking and having a good time. She was one of the models in his show, the final, the 25 year anniversary show. Fantastic show. Robert had created most of the clothes himself,together with his team, much of it re-created, transformed and turned around with his immense talent! I was amazed by each entry on stage all modeled by well known personalities. And I love those young models (sorry I will add her name ) so full of wit, curiosity and open mindedness. talking about make up or not…ears… etc…the funny thing is that most models I know including myself, wear no make up when private. Could part of it be that we are so ”seen” when we work, that we can play out all those needs and are simply filled? Then we state examples to the readers of fashion magazines of how to look, which make up to wear and which hair. And which clothes to wear. While we, the models, often don`t follow any of that. Fashion is truly a work of art, a creation that we can be inspired by…and very much so, since a lot of creativity has been put into it, like a painter with his canvas, colors and skill is expressing some kind of perfection of beauty. A reflection of the beauty of life.
Here is one. More will follow. Thank you Robert. Thank you Elle.
