THE LEGEND

So last Thursday my official birthday was there and to celebrate my lover and I planned a small getaway to one of Holland’s capitals, The Hague. I choose to go here because till the end of March 2014 you can visit the exhibition Chanel; The Legend at the Gemeentemuseum. And as a true Chanel lover this exposition in my own country was not to be missed. The exhibition tells you the story of the life of Coco Chanel. From her early childhood, her life in Paris, how she build her business and off course all her lovers. If, like me, you already have read some books about Chanel, you will probably know most of the stories, but somehow it stays very inspiring. At least to me. This exposition is besides all the story of a fashion designer, also about a woman who was very much in control of her life and also ahead of her time. Maybe, to me, that’s even more inspiring than all the beautiful things she created. So in the end, even if you’re are not into the designs of Coco Chanel, this exhibition is a real must see. And if you do love her designs then […]

AFW: CLAES IVERSEN

Last Saturday I was invited by Volvo to watch the show of couturier Claes Iversen at the Amsterdam Fashion Week. I already was a fan before but this show proved to me why I loved his work in the first place and why it is so important to keep couture alive. It’s hard to discribe the feeling of such a gorgeous show, like with so many things in life you have to see it with your own eyes to really see and feel the art come to life. The flowing fabrics, the beaded fringes, the poping colors, the music, just like magic.   Last picture: Me and Claes Iversen.

IT WAS CALLED YELLOW

A couple of weeks ago I already shared some photo’s on Instagram (you can follow me @hannekeverstegn) of s shoot I was doing that day. For some reason I haven’t shared the finalized photo’s with you. Until now. This shoot was all about hair and make-up so it had to be something different, experimental, not your every day style. Initially I was only asked to do the styling but later on I also ended up as a model. After we discussed the hair and make-up I really got inspired by the Oriental style as you can see. But to keep the focus on the hair and make-up I choose this really plain yellow dress from ZARA. By adding the Kimono we achieved the Oriental ethos which really complements the hair & make-up. Anyway, I love to experiment with clothes but also with hair and make-up. That’s what I always envy about models and actresses, that they are transformed into a total different person by only changing your hair, clothes and make-up. And off course to have the photo’s as a keepsake. I love that I was a part of something like that for once and luckily I got the photo’s to prove it.   […]
