Someone’s finally back in Los Angeles after a busy couple of days of cruisin’ through Europe! Can’t be happier about it. In less than 2 weeks, Cibelle and I have literally travelled across the globe to go to Rome, London and Portugal before flying back home. And in each city, the experience was absolutely grasping, that’s the least to say. It all began with a roman adventure with Bvlgari, then the British fashion awards to finally end up on a major set, shooting my very first Vogue cover in Lisbon with my beloved L’Oréal team. Needless to say, it was truly intense but so incredibly special.
This lovely short journey left me tremendously inspired. I still have a reminiscence of all the mesmerizing landscapes of Rome on my mind, the colors, the light (the taste of that delicious mozzarella in my mouth too!!!) just as much as all the powerful speeches held during the BFA’s. From Lady Gag’s acceptance speech on behalf of Tom Ford to Karl Lagerfeld’s for his Outstanding achievement award which was presented to him by Anna Wintour. A very touching, historic moment in fashion that we will all for sure remember.
I felt so blessed to even simply be be amongst the crowd… I remember so well years ago when I was in my little room in Switzerland dreaming about attending one day one of these events just to watch all these incredible talents, feel surrounded by their magical aura and creative energy. What was even more insane is to know that the very next day, I was on my way to Lisbon to shoot for Vogue. And not just Vogue, but the cover itself. I was pinching myself.
So at 2am, once we got back in our room from the BFAs, we packed all of our stuff, I even managed to write an article for the blog (as you can imagine, I felt highly inspired!) and off we went at 4am to London Heathrow to catch our 7am flight to Lisbon. Once we landed, no time for a nap, it was straight to the set. Gotta say, I would usually recommend anyone to get a big beauty sleep before shooting for something as important as that. But surprisingly my body handled it quite well. The perks of being 22… Gotta keep going while we can right? A little shower and I was ready to roll. I am sharing the cover the with two incredibly talented power girls that you guys will learn everything about as soon as the issue comes out next month. All I can say is that it’s going to be unique and awesome.
So now, after all this craziness, I am back in Los Angeles. It’s almost 4am here and I am jet lagged : sitting on my living room’s couch with my day dress on and a big undone braid in my hair. I fell asleep at 9pm and woke up an hour ago and just felt like posting. Because it does feel so good to be back. The whole month of December I will be traveling less as I really want to spend some quality down time and enjoy not moving around so much as it can get a bit crazy sometimes. I crave opening my fridge, snuggling on the warm, sun heated rug of my bedroom, having long, lazy walks in Santa Monica… It’s also the perfect weather to play with layers. Here I’m wearing this beautiful, easy navy blue dress (it has an awesome detachable collar but for this look, I decided to take it off) and gray faux fur coat from Storets. I love these kind of looks, the ones where you don’t even need to think about. Just throw it on and it makes you feel so great and comfortable.
