I see myself as Beauty

and I know myself as Beauty. Not the ego self boosting beauty but the knowing and the appreciation of who I am and my life path here. I just feel so much gratitude to this life for being here for me and me for it. The deep gratitude in my heart is far greater than anything I can wear or any make up I may put on or even the most beautiful picture of me. Even as a young famous model I put the heart before the looks, the longing and the appreciation before the gratification. The longing to know the essence of life and it`s highest potential. I know now. I know gratitude. And I walk every step with appreciation for my being here, right here. Even when I`m sad I know this. I embrace myself with my own love and it is beautiful. This is where my long journey has brought me and right now I stand in the gateway with a vast land in front of me and a vast land behind. Both present future and past are part of the ever present endless now.DSC_7141

After the L`Oreal Photo session with Peter Lindbergh I took the bus to les Tuileries, a parc near le Louvre in Paris.I always do this, make a connection to nature in some way. At les Tuileries there is this water pool and fountain where I had a moment of rest, slept a while in the chair, looked at the sky and the water and connected to my inner being. Grateful for the work and the meetings I just had there and the meeting with this young Japanese student sitting next to me who took the picture…and then my walk continued….

Peter Lindbergh and me…again

…I love superorganized work productions like this one. It opens up the space for meetings…DSC_7012

like with Stéphane LANCIEN, very very well renowned hairdresser. I know him since the 70s! You can`t imagine, it`s the biggest gift to meet friends from long ago. In this work it is like this, we work, we have creative good moments together, we part…some stay close friends…and some we like but loose contact with and THEN we meet again…heartfelt JOY!

Stéphane wanted to leave my hair down, which I prefer, but L´Oreal wanted it up since I was performing the grandmother to young beauty Caterina RAVAGLIA. Not my style of dressing either but I was looking elegant.

Peter showing us the picture he took. It was really easy to work with him, he was fast and still precise.

Peter Lindbergh and me

Summer has been great and very diverse. I was in Paris working with Peter Lindberg for L`Oreal. It was our first meeting and working. He was starting in the 80s and me in the late 60s. But as we spoke we found out that our paths had crossed several times during the 70s and we are more or less the same age. To me life is interesting and amazing every day and this was one of those days…

DSC_6977

We were in this huge apartment, first there was this long corridor that led into a room that led out to the garden, the staff were hanging out there while Peter was taking pictures next door.

DSC_6979

He came to greet me after just a couple of minutes. My first impression was that of meeting a powerful man, very confident in his work and very sympathetic. I immediately liked him and wished to meet him again very soon…

DSC_6966

then I was led to the makeup room, with THE makeup artists and their assistants

DSC_6971

It was in a boy called VICs room, his friends had written all over the blackboard on one wall

DSC_6974

models kept coming or leaving…it was a day of mood stories and not a commercial product pictureDSC_6975

this is the model whose grandmother I was…and could almost have been if I were a little younger when I had my first child…

DSC_6999

Nails were super cared for and the hand massage that followed for about 20 min I wish to have every day, totally ecstatic! And super relaxing.

DSC_7000

I always fall in love with the sweetness of the younger models, really, most of the time they are just amazing beings with many different side talents and I love the exchange that happens…

DSC_7091

I just see beauty…

DSC_7093

everywhere…

DSC_7096

in everyone. You may say it`s easy to see it in them…but I see it in everyone…most of the time. In the beauty shining out.

DSC_7049

We took turns eating lunch, provided by le Notre, that used to do catering for Kenzo at the time I worked there.

Over…

stockholmmusicandarts festival is over for this time. It has been GREAT! Since I did not have my camera it was a very different experience. I totally let go of following from the perspective of documenting and just enjoyed, sometimes far away from the stage, meeting with friends and making new ones…that is one of the best things with this festival…meetings while great music is happening. And the Art part was also good, I enjoyed the interactive performances at the Modern Dance Theatre. The music is connecting and the people are connecting and the possibilities to raise the level of living life even more connected is there for sure. And that was exactly happening at Way Out West .Fantastic organisers LUGER got a sustainability accreditation for the whole festival. I feel curious to know how it has worked in reality. I hope you enjoyed Omar Souleyman who did not get his visa for Stockholm but finally got it for Gothenburg. My camera is back and soon it`s time for fashion again, starting tonight with the opening party  of Stockholm Fashion Week. My summer has been full of wonderful diversity and I carry all those moments in me like pearls on a string. Some I will share here.
