Along Came a Camera Team

Along Came a Camera Team

Read more...

Am still trying to figure out why the appearance of a camera and two cute guys in your bedroom (in my case) turn a grown woman into a giggling teenager with verbal diarrhoea. No, no - it's not what you think: am talking about the long expected and highly appreciated arrival of the guys filming house and shoe closet (plus unfortunately me talking). Seems that I caught some kind of fashion-brand-Tourette's whenever I opened my mouth (Gucci! Prada! YSL!) and before I have to X-rate the whole drama myself (aka not tell anybody that it aired) here's my wishlist for editing.

Dear Ciaran!
Please don't let anybody know that I said that "everything with boobs attached has a thing for heels". It might be only me.
I would also appreciate if nobody else ever finds out that I stopped drinking expensive coffee to save money (for...well.... you take an educated guess). "Hihi" number 499 and "giggle" number 276 can be cut out too. And although I'm truly excited about fashion, retrospectively it might have been a little too dramatic to throw arms theatrically while shouting "I love fashion!" straight into the camera. Maybe you can leave that out as well? That, and all the other awkward moments that made me wish "silent film" would be on trend again. Just a thought...

Otherwise you're very welcome to change the program title from "Breakfast in bed" to "Gone is the brain".

Thank you in advance,
sincerely your shoe-aholic

Breakfast In Bed

Breakfast in Bed

Read more...

"Early bird catches the worm" my mom used to say, and I was grumpy with her for that quote for almost all my teenage years. I never found anything glorious nor fortunate about getting up early (albeit I love the sunrise, but that's when you are coming home after partying, and another story). I'm kind of a "blair witch project" (aka REAL horror) without having at least a liter of coffee (which generally takes until 12.00) too... Call me a diva if you want to, but it's only obvious: Am a night person, utterly useless in the morning.

Having said so, it just happened that I was asked if I would be interested to do a TV interview about my addiction to heels. Kind of a home-story, showing how I live, babbling about my passion. Couldn't be more excited. My babies! On TV! Full color! How great! I mean, will have to do some serious preparing (shall I wear the Olympia's or the Atwood's? Oh, they would fit so great with my new outfit, maybe a bunch of flowers in the background... kind of blurry, what kind of flowers, decisions, decisions ...)

Erg, sorry, what did they say was the title of the program again? "Breakfast in bed?" Ah! Interesting. Meaning like... filming like... at like breakfast TIME?
Oh! Blair witch project the sequel, anyone?

Kristen Stewart is Wrong

Kristen Stewart is Wrong

Now don't think I'm in the habit of stalking 22 year old actresses, or even the slightest bit interested in Hollywood gossip (oops, can hear my Mom talking: "I thought I taught you not to lie..." damn...), but came across an actually very funny and spontaneous interview Charlize Theron and KStew did for a French TV show. They were asked kinda random questions via a robot-like monitor. One of them: "Best advice to get a job in Hollywood?" was answered by Ms. Stewart with: "We are sitting on it".

Now I believe the lady is no stranger to getting herself in trouble with these types of answers (or to just getting herself in trouble - perhaps you followed the whole cheating scandal which had millions of minors weeping themselves to sleep half the summer), but it actually made me think. I mean, everybody knows that working feminine qualities to your advantage is quite common - and why not? Supply and demand will always determine the market (and it's very probably the demand that deserves to be looked at more closely). But Kristen is wrong. The answer should be: "We are walking on it". Still believe that a healthy pair of legs (in heels of course), and a brain can get you anywhere.

Could be that I'm just trying to encourage myself (have a super important interview today) but just one thing: Kristen is a Converse fan. Hmm. You do the math.

The Art of Writing

The Art of Writing

Have totally neglected the art of reading lately. So finally taking a minute to have a rendezvous with literature (aka Vogue and such), catching up on latest world news (trends for A/W2012) and diving into cover articles all featuring young, aspiring actresses.

The setting is always a hotel lobby where the gals look flawless without any make-up (haha), effortlessly chic in their Louboutins (Louboutins are never effortless: they are PAIN), sporting “casual” fashion (Chanel, Dior, Valentino). Also the journalists (mainly guys) always seem surprised how humble, down to earth, open and funny the stars are, and most importantly: that they eat, may have an average glass of wine and how much less bitchy they are than expected.

Am more than willing to believe all of the above, and very aware that the art of writing in Magazines is highly influenced by studios, PR and publicists: but honestly: muaaaaaaaah. It’s all so similar! Would love to read a perky, different and spicy interview without the predictable. For a change.

Maybe I should sign up to give one myself (final version must be approved by my mom, boyfriend and editor of course). Can picture the finished article already:
“As she walks through the hotel lobby in incredibly high heels, elegantly swinging her MiuMiu, I can’t help but notice how much younger and slimmer she looks in person. Over a glass of champagne and a remarkable amount of oysters she so wittily and openly sparkles about her passion that time flies and before I know it I want to wear high heels myself”.

Hmmmmm. Not too bad actually...

Interview

Read more...

I’ve had my fair share of (shoe) interviews in the past so am quite used to chatting about my babies.

Like the TV-show (cameras, cables and assistants everywhere) in Vienna where I sat (stiff as a board) in my shift skirt, Dolce’s and silky bow tied blouse, while “Best Ex” protectively checked the questions that would be asked (you never know TV). The director later told me that he was actually afraid that BE would bite him if he wasn’t very careful with everything (I can only say that I would most likely have bitten him too if something had gone wrong, I was that tense).

Or the interview I did for the Dutch Elle last year, where I surprised the two ladies who had come to interview me with champagne. 
In my anxious state, I practically drank the whole bottle myself and ended up dancing to bad rock (it was early afternoon. In my defense though: I hadn’t had a bite to eat due to excitement).
 
Nervous? Me? Never!
So why the hell do I find myself locked in the bathroom of today’s interview location talking to myself: “Breath in. Breath out”?
Wonder if Geraldine (the super nice lady doing the interview) will accept “ooooooohm” as an answer to most of her questions.
