Feminine Mode On

Pictures by Inès Monnet It usually happens twice a year when I get a signal that I need to get something done. Of course I am talking about how lately I can no longer handle my too-long-and-no-shape hair. It is driving me nuts. Surprisingly the other day, I managed to trick my hair to look… Read More »

Before the Storm

Pictures by Inès Monnet Inès and I shot this look luckily just before the storm hit Lausanne. The street colors went well with the urban mood we wanted to give to the photo shoot. Many of you ask me if I own all the clothes I wear or if I borrow them. Well, most of… Read More »

Maxi and Short

Pictures by Inès Monnet It seems we unconsciously pose at our best angle in front of a mirror. However, scientists also claim that what we see in a mirror is actually different from how others see us. That’s perhaps why we can be surprised/disappointed to find ourselves not looking our “best” in some pictures, just… Read More »

The Backstage Look

Pictures by Pierre B. In the excitement over my backstage coverage of Edelweiss October issue, I forgot to post pictures of the outfit I went to the event with. Knowing that I would be up on my feet all day long, I put on comfy flat shoes. I wore an oversized tee over a lace-trimmed… Read More »
