ON EDGE

webb_KTR_8141

These last couple of days have been pure, complete craziness and filled with overwhelming moments of adrenaline rush… Being in L.A is a real dream come true, I feel like I’m levitating in a little colorful bubble of heaven. It might be the reason why I didn’t post for a couple of days, I felt the urge to live the moment and come back even more inspired with so much to say and so much to share with you guys. As you might know, 2015 is full of new resolutions for me and the whole Kayteam… We all had a special feeling on New Year, as if we knew that something crazy was going to happen. I’ve never felt as motivated, excited and passionate. It’s like a breath of new energy came in me as soon as the 1st of January hit our calendars.

Spending time with Lance, my producer buddy, doing music all day, everyday is beyond words… It’s all I ever really wanted and honestly, there’s no other place I’d rather be. My past couple of days have been like this : waking up at around 7am, kicking off with dance/work-out classes, then vocal classes, then studio/songwriting/practicing with Lance all day with music related meetings + events in the evening. So between seeing Taylor Swift at my dance class this Thursday, enjoying a sassy glimpse of Jamie Dornan a.k.a Mr. Grey at the W Magazine, Pre-Golden Globes party and being acclaimed by 10 paparazzi on my way to get coffee, days have been a little wild… Like really wild.

I’ve been living every single second to the fullest, that’s why I disconnected a tiny bit from the online world. And you know what, it feels so good. It gives me even more things to say when I get back at it. Living in the present and experiencing “real life” instead of seing the world through the lens of a camera felt quite refreshing to be true. I felt more inspired to write songs, to have in depth conversations, to start a new diary! I also got addicted to Twitter (make sure to follow me @kayture) where I share some ridiculously exciting introspective inner monologues…! We’ve also had such an awesome Q&A party! I was so impressed to see the hundreds of questions that have been sent out, we’ll definitely do that more often you guys.

I am thrilled to share this new editorial with you. We shot it on the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette, in their private shopping suite where I had the chance to pick and choose some gorgeous party outfits… Black has always been my color of predilection, for probably everything. As soon as I saw this black leather dress from Lanvin, my heart literally melted. It felt like Matrix met Audrey Hepburn and they had a baby together. Boom. It’s such an edgy yet incredibly beautiful piece. I wanted to mix it up with silver details such as these Gucci heels, Messika diamonds and a little Lady Dior bag.

So cool that you met Taylor Swift at the dancing class,I guess that’s quite a common thing in LA to just rush into all kinds of celebrities :)
I love this editorial a lot,mostly because of that perfect make-up and the beautiful gown. But didn’t you feel cold on top of this terrace? :)

Fashion Advice, Events and More

I’m starting to wonder if very successful bloggers, like you Kristina, don’t start to lose focus on the purpose of their blogs.With the time, the emphasis of your content starts to fall more on your campaigns, editorials and collaborations with brands. I think readers are rather more interested in being inspired by your amazing everyday street style sense. In the end, we could see all the pretty pictures in the magazines as well and I think that shouldn’t be the purpose of blogs. Your blog became more of a business model diary/portfolio, and I feel like it’s not aimed at me as reader, but rather at potential clients, who’d like to hire you for a job.
In the end, of course you are free to post whatever content you are comfortable with on your own personal blog, but I really really wish you take my words into consideration.
The pictures above are stunning and you look amazing. :)
Best wishes.

Unbelievable !! You look OH MY GOD ! No wonder paparazzis get crazy, you are a star ! Love those pictures, they are so chic and glamorous, and on the top of the Galeries, no less !

I knew about you from Instagram last year. I fell in love with your looks in just one picture then I decided to follow your IG. You are an inspiration, Kristina. I hope one day we could meet, both as fashion blogger. I have yet to begin but soon, I’ll get there. Wish me luck, Mi, your fan ♥

absolutely amazing!!

Wooow, beautiful post and blog!
Love Greetings:-)

I’ve been seeing all your updates on Instagram and I have to say, pretty crazy life you’re leading! You’re really entering the entertainment industry with the right foot and I’m pretty sure you know exactly what you’re doing – good luck with this thrilling adventure! I’m sure you’ll nail it.

I really like how expressive you are in these posts; you inspire me to read more, learn more, write more, and more importantly, think much more. You’re not just writing music for the sake of it, but you want to translate whatever’s inside you through the words. I’m sure once your album/music hits stores it’ll be absolutely huge. I also found out you’ll be writing your book in French – I hope it’ll be in English as well! I’d love love love to be able to read it.

Other than that, love this outfit. You really know how to capture a dramatic mood with the outfits you put together. the Lanvin dress is quite the masterpiece and you pulled it off so well with the Dior bag and Gucci heels – definitely feels like an eloquent editorial.

This dress is absolutely stunning Kristina! It’s one of my faves that you’ve worn in a long time. But whoops, I thought it was a dark blue looking at the first photo until you mention that it was black leather haha…

So glad you are taking time to enjoy everyday – it’s a goal of mine as well this year to be more present each day. It’s always nice to read your posts & doesn’t matter if it’s been a few days.

I was also really excited that you were in the same dance class as Taylor Swift. I’m such a fan of both of you & I dancing was my first ever love. It’d be a dream come true to have fun and dance with you lady’s. Hee hee

Hope you’re have a wonderful day :-)

Hi Kristina!! I’ve been following you since last year!! And I really love your style!! Besides, you’re such a sweet heart!! I’m a huge fan of you from México! And it was a pleasure to see a special article about Tulum which is a magic place here!! I hope one day I can have so great sence of style just like you!!

XOXO!!

Hahaha I love this post, I mean when I was reading all about what you have been passing it was pretty awesome, seeing Taylor Swift, the party of the Golden Globes, and the paparazzis meanwhile you was just going for a coffee looks really unrealistic for me.
Kristina I hope you have success in this new adventure you’re having now of writting and singing!
About the images I laughed when you said about the dress is the union between Audrey Hepburn & Matrix, but is true! It’s really pretty and the jewerly makes it more elegant! :)

Tu as raison, prends le temps de profiter de la “vraie” vie et de passer du temps avec ceux qui te sont proches à Los Angeles. C’est vrai, le monde virtuel et interactif est très important pour toi, pour ta carrière, mais il n’y a rien de plus important que profiter et vivre pleinement. Et je pense qu’il n’y a rien de mieux q’un environnement ensoleillé pour se ressourcer !

Pour ce qui est des photos… Il n’y a pas à dire, pour moi Paris est photogénique. Qu’elles belles photos avec ses toits en arrière plan. Un décors parfait pour un photoshoot !

wow what a crazy life! :)

I love your dress, honored that you shooted it in Paris!

Dear Kristina, today I experienced the biggest disappointment ever. The blogger I love, the girl whose lead I follow photoshopped her legs on Instagram. Why would you do that to us? To yourself? Everybody loves you the way you are, do not get all psyched about skinny figure in such a young age. You look skinny all the time, why do the obvious photoshopping? It looks so clumsy, everybody can see the difference. Sad day for all of us and I hope you will publish some statement regarding this matter.

Kristina you have such an amazing style and life and you are such an amazing inspiration to everyone you meet! I”ve loved following you on your journey, where ever KAY goes. I love you so much!

P.S. feel free to check out my fashion blog! http://www.buzztosophia.blogspot.ca

I loooooove dresses, and this one is one of the best I’ve seen so far. So beautiful!

http://stylesprinter.com/

I’m gonna say this with the most amount of love possible: I wanted to see a shot of the dress/whole look and you kept putting that purse in the middle girl! It would have been amazing if (even though I know that you probably had to show the bag and all that) we could have seen and entire picture without you putting in our faces the bag, the jewelry, etc. The amazing dress lost protagonism.
I think the background was cool, the styling was on point, but I was missing that shot. I mean, there are probably 9 of 10 pictures with the bag in the middle.

I loved the vibe of this shoot, it was just that detail.

Wooow amizing editorial, the bag is so stunning and the jewerly too <3!
