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.


So here we are, hair down, jacket off…me and Peter.


I felt happy with his arm around me…DSC_7046

so here is one more.


And then a kiss…Yeay!

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…


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.


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…


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


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


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…


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.


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…


I just see beauty…




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.


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

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.

I have the movie and have not yet seen it. It is waiting for its moment and I think it will be tonight. The legend that I have heard and hear so much about came on stage accompanied by two women supporting him. My heart opened wide. Having been with my father his last years and feeling my own body changes as well, I know what it`s like , no matter what the reason, to not be able to do what I used to with my body. His story is well known by now, it has made him a legend, but the fact that he came here to play is even greater. I stood there an listened and loved him and his music. Respect. Listen beyond the expectations. See the man. And yes, I saw the movie now. Respect.
