Maxim South Africa has published an article about me in their November issue and besides a very cool editorial we also had a little chat about my blog project, the modern feminine beauty ideal and the most important fashion basics everyone should call their own. And obviously I had to share my personal mantra “why you can be smart and in your underwear” with the Maxim crew.
Matching to that, I had the great pleasure of modelling some beautiful lingerie designs from Bluebella and Agent Provocateur. If you are a regular reader than you know I have a slight shopping addiction, but my favourite targets are shoes, swimwear and lingerie! The shooting took place in a very cool “shabby-chic” location not far from Hamburg and shockingly this is already my third Maxim publication!
I often get asked if I do some sort of special preparation for productions like this but honestly besides keeping an eye on my diet I don’t really change anything in advance and rely on the power of make up and the little occasional miracle photoshop can do 🙂 And this leads to the message I want to leave, if you see pictures in magazines from flawless models that have the perfect skin and perfect body than remind yourself that these pictures are carefully planned illusions! I have met many models at and during countless castings I have seen them in bikinis and lingerie and besides that there are many gorgeous girls really nobody is perfect!!
