The only thing I am unsure right now is that if I love The Walking Dead more than I love American Horror Story. But I am equaly excited for both shows to return. Entertainment Weekly is revealing their latest covers with characters from The Walking Dead #LOVE. We already photographed Norman Reedus for a previous issue of BELLO mag and more recently we had the pleasure to photograph and interview Andrew J. West aka Gareth this time for an upcoming issue of BELLO mag. We do not know yet if he is a really bad guy or maybe a good guy in a bad position who will help our heroes ... either way, I cannot wait to find out. On another Walking Dead note, I can tell you that we will be shooting in the very near future one more character featured on those covers. I cannot reveal the of this person name right now but I am SOOOO excited because 'this person' is totally my favorite character !!!! Stay tuned. Continue reading

Thank god for the relatively slow release of American Horror Story: Freak Show goodies. I am so excited for this new season that if all the teasers, posters, trailers, informations would come at me at once ... my mind would simply implode! First how amazing is the news that Matt Bomer will join the cast in this new adventure!? I like him in White Collar, I am gonna LOVE him in AHS, I just know it, with his good look he will for sure play a twisted character and that will be fun to watch. Today The Hollywood Reporter has released a few details about this upcoming season 'It’s darker than “Coven” and Ryan Murphy will direct the premiere' - read more - and this AMAZING cast art aka poster.

Last week we have discovered the first image for Dsquared2 new fragrance Wild, shot by Steven Klein. As for the model it was just revealing his sexy back. This week the twins have revealed on their instagram @dsquared2 who the model is for this new campaign. His name is Silvester Ruck (DT) @silvesterruck he is a profesional kitesurfing (turned model for obvious reaseson). Silvester was born in Munich and grew up in Spain lived in South Africa and has now landed in Los Angeles. Check out this video of him 'playing wild stallion' You can follow those two crazy fun designers on instagrams @Dsquared2 because not only you will get to know first what is going on in their professional lives but also a lot of what is going on in their private lives .. Like right now did you know they are in Mykonos (who isn't right?) and they are chilling by the pool with another pair of twins, Kevin and Jonathan Sampaio! @jonathansampaio. #follow. They were invited to the Dsquared2 Wild party that took place in Mykonos for the launch of the fragrance ... Continue reading

Et voilà, c'est fini! We had such a good time in Bon Temps. I mean as viewers. The actual people of Bon Temps, not so much. A lot have been killed, plenty were turned, many met true death and too many were left without their loved ones ... but all that gave us 7 years of True Blood. Some seasons may have been better, there were some ups and downs, we might have loved some characters more than others ... one thing is for sure, True Blood is a Pop Culture phenomenon series to remember. Personally it was the first series we could actually watch 'live' from the US as True Blood premiered the month we moved to Los Angeles back in 2008. Before that we were living in Paris (I know you don't actually feel bad for us) but we could only have a distant look on what was hot on tv in America. I remember how frustrating it was for us poor French citizens to wait for the episodes of Sex And The City or Six Feet Under (my husband always refused to download anything illegaly like EVER). So yes True Blood turned us as soon as we stepped out of that Air France plane. All along True Blood was some sort of an allegory for LGBTQ rights and campaigning for equal rights - Tiny Spoiler Alert - this final episode featured the union - even tho still not recognized in the beautiful state of Louisiana - of a Vampire and human. Love is Love! In this very last episode, Adele Stackhouse gave a young Sookie Stackhouse a great piece of advice: 'You can have any kind of life you want. Anything you want you are intitled to it. There are no limits on you, if you don't put it on yourself.' And that is the best advice someone can get. Ironically, I did get that exact same advice from my grand parents, even tho I did not turn out to be a fangbanger, nore am a fairy ;P I was - for sure - not going to be like everyone else. And 7 years ago when Alek and I landed in Los Angeles with one bag each to start a new chapter, there were fewer limits to our horizon - Anything you want you are intitled to it - may sound like a cliché but it works if you know exactly what you want, and that is where the trick is. Knowing what you want is not as easy as it sounds because among many other things that wish should not be associated with anything material. 7 years later, one of our adventures called BELLO Mag gave us the opportunity to achieve many things like meeting and working with incredible talents, including many actors from True Blood. Here is a recap of some of the people we have photographed and featured in the magazine over the years: Ryan Kwanten, Carrie Preston, Joe Manganiello, Nelsan Ellis and Kevin... Continue reading

Earlier this month in Zurich, Switzerland took place the 22nd European Athletics Championships and bien sur Les Francais won the Silver medals but acted like they deserved the Gold medal ;-P Love this picture of the winners/posers Gael Querin, Florian Geffrouais and Kevin Mayer! After the race the Frenchies were ready for a well deserved shower but first ... let them take a #selfie;-) Actually the selfie was taken before their win. But for more you can (should) #follow Kevin Mayer on instagram @mayer_kevin. Now if the Gael and Florian could open an instagram account I would not mind :-) Vive La France! Continue reading

Aerial Menswear with Extreme Trampolinists Flippenout The Guinness World Record-breaking American athletic troupe Flippenout show off their aerial feats in photographer Dominick Sheldon’s directorial debut, The Wall. Having trained under the conceptual eye of Steven Klein, Sheldon fuses the trampolinist stars of NBA and NFL half-time shows’ performance gear with the military-inflected styling of creative director and former editor of Russh, Stevie Dance. The filmmaker shot brothers Sean and Eric Kennedy while they flew through the air at heights up to 22 feet, clad in designers including 3.1 Phillip Lim, J.W. Anderson and Tim Coppens. Captured on the runway of Floyd Bene Fields, a derelict airspace outside of New York, the bouncing showmen are soundtracked to the pulsating “Paradiso,” an original score by bass-heavy producer Feral, AKA Caleb Halter. “My background in fashion spurred me to take them out their typical environment,” says Sheldon. “When they enter and exit a frame they’re in a different outfit yet they’re still in routine. It’s a performance.” source. Continue reading

Streakers ... one of those things I never really understood, but then again so many things I do not really get in this world. Like for exemple this stupid #IceBucketChallenge. At first - even tho I thought it was dumb - I was dumb enought to believed that people had to do the challenge AND also give money to the ALS Association, but no, people actually do it to avoid donating ... so that was a 'good' start. Of course because we live in such a charitable world people (like the rich one who feel like it is ok to be irresponsable and charitable at the same time) are doing both things, looking stupid and donating money. Looking stupid is not really the issue here as it is something most people do without any problem at any given time, nore is the amount of water wasted (even tho it kinda is) My issue to be honest with you is that it only shows that in a world with 783 million people without water access (only killing 3.4 million people each year) it is OK for the so-well-educated-spoiled-westerners that we are, to waste water. The issue is not really the amount of water wasted ... but let's stay close to home on this one: California is just going through one of its worst drought in history (and it won't be the last one) ... but who cares really as long as people can share on facebook their favorite videos of actors taking on the #IceBucketChallenge? After all the lack of water (and I am just talking about us spoiled west coast idiots) will raise the prices of fruits and vegetables at the grocery store, like who cares right? The beers prices may also go up (Oh I feel like maybe that can get the attention of a few ...) According to a study published in Nature, the frequency of earthquakes could increase, and we know that something like that has ZERO consequences right? This year’s wildfire season will extend for the entire year. Air quality in California might get worse. read more about those FUN facts here. The drought will ONLY cost $2.2. billion with a job loss of 17,100. (not so fun anymore ... but who cares? most people don't like their job anyway) the important thing is that Oprah, Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg's jobs aren't going anywhere. I just hope they at least gave a million dollar each which would be like us giving $1. And maybe even match that to donation to water.org. Oh well at least Mark Zuckerberg is using his recycling blue bin if that is of any comfort ... #YAYplanet. Imagine the #IceBucketChallenge in order to raise money and awareness to water.org ... how stupid and non-logical would that sound to you? Then why would this be any different for another cause? So now to go back to our poor streaker above who got arrested over the weekend in San Francisco for safely running... Continue reading
