Tales of manhattan
I am writing this post straight from my hotel room bed in London after a very big, busy day. If you follow me on my social media, then you might already know what I am talking about…! After spending more or less two months in the United States, I flew back to Europe, London being the first stop, on a private jet with all the Victoria’s Secret models to attend their show on the 2nd of December. Needless to say, it felt like an absolutely surreal experience! It was a dream of mine to attend the show one day, I could have never even imagined that I’d actually land on the plane with all the girls, wrapped up in a pink VS blanket… It still sounds absolutely crazy to me.
To get ready for the show (which I am obviously not going to walk although a lot of you asked, I am going to be seated among the guests and walk the VIP Pink Carpet) I decided to take a week in New York to work out like a crazy person. It’s been ages that I haven’t properly done any sports related activity as I’ve been basically hibernating in the music studio writing and singing all day. Also it’s been a coffee diet for most of the part… with a lot of sweets involved. And yet, I decided to give myself that extra healthy push for the end of this year, just to let my inner angel shine through as much as I can hehe! Pressure’s on!!!
The show will in fact take place in a couple of hours, and I am dying… That’s just how excited I am. And to honor this joy, I would like to share with you guys a shooting that I waited a little while before revealing to you as it felt like it needed a special occasion to be shown. During NYFW, I got together with one of my super talented photographer friend, Oriana Layendecker, and we decided to work on an iconic set of images evolving around the celebration of New York city. By the way, you guys NEED to check out her work. She has such an incredible talent and works so so quickly! We had so much fun shooting these images although it was in the middle of a super tight fashion week schedule.
Thanks to all the team who helped out that day. And I hope you all will enjoy this set of images! Make sure to stay updated on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Pinterest for more news and images from the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in London! Let’s live this together :)

Wunderschöne Bilder Kristina! Der Pudel finde ich persönlich allerdings zu viel, das arme Tier wurde rosa eingefärbt. Für mich persönlich geht das schon zu weit. Aber was man nicht alles für ein perfektes Foto macht ;)
Ich freue mich für Dich, Du hast in den letzten Jahren so viel erreicht. Ich mag mich noch erinnern, als wir zusammen bei Gant am Tisch sassen :)
Viel Erfolg weiterhin und vielleicht kommst Du wieder Mal zurück in die Schweiz :D
Ganz liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz
