THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS is a very dear film to me, so making this pictorial was a labor of love and huge acomplishment.

The Royal Tenenbaums is a 2001 American comedy-drama film directed by Wes Anderson and co-written with Owen Wilson. The film stars Gene Hackman and Anjelica Huston, with Danny Glover, Bill Murray, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, and Owen Wilson.

It follows the lives of three gifted siblings who experience great success in youth, and even greater disappointment and failure after their eccentric father leaves them in their adolescent years. An ironic and absurdist sense of humor pervades the film.

The main story centers on step brothers Margot and Richie Tenenbaum‘s secret love affair, which we interpreted as consumed after Royal’s death.

THE AMAZING TEAM who worked on making this shoot come true:

How to shoot a royalty in 10 easy steps

I took the time to pick some making of shots from the weekend I embodied ANNA de Noailles for Alexandra Vacaroiu and her great photographer talent. Since these could not fit in the pictorial but were also too good to waste, I decided to make a selection and post it here. For the pictorial, jump here.

Also, listen to this amazing tune my friend Felix found tonight:

ANNA DE NOAILLES. THE AGE OF DESIRE

French aristocrat poet with Romanian origins Comtesse Anna de Noailles has been the most prominent of my recent musings. She wrote three novels, an autobiography, and a number of poems. At the beginning of the 20th century, her salon on the Avenue Hoche attracted the intellectual, literary and artistic elite of the day including Francis Jammes, Paul Claudel, Colette, André Gide, Frédéric Mistral, Robert de Montesquiou-Fezensac, Paul Valéry, Jean Cocteau, Alphonse Daudet, Pierre Loti, Paul Hervieu, and Max Jacob. Although she was not so remembered in our country for her poetry and autobiographic work, De Noailles seduced the French with her quirky charm and blunt eroticism, also portrayed by many artists of the age. Her lyrics speak of lustful desire, like a drug for the heart.

Based on this heartsnatcher’s story, this is the first RUFFLES FOR BREAKFAST pictorial (well not the first, but the first I’m proud of) and my first “serious” work as a stylist. We tried to embody this free spirited artist’s feminine savageness and to make her walk in modern, yet seasoned by her taste, shoes.

The artist behind the camera was the very talented ALEXANDRA VACAROIU.

And the shoot took place with the help of the guys from CAROL 53.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Longboard girls and inked-up tights

EVERYBODY KNOWS: I am a fan of tattoos (2 done, 5 planned), so when I got my eyes on this pair of sheer body art printed tights from Pamela Mann I knew I won’t resist them. Getting a tattoo (or more) doesn’t make you a convicted criminal, peasant, tosser, illiterate, creepy hobo with no teeth and no perspective. Except if you are all those already. My point – no need you have your arms cut/skin peeled to get rid of that embarrassing memory or just to please others. I actually agree to ink more than to any jewelry, bling, pierces or make-up. It’s timeless and makes a real statement.

AND, if you don’t feel they are friendly enough for your style, you can always try a pair of tights that emulate ink art. This pair is such a stunner, with mermaids, starfish, roses and stars. They are HELL SPELL BOUND and they make me think of Cali, longboard girls in summer clothes and partying till dawn. They also seem very sheer but these are POWER TIGHTS, don’t break, don’t shred.

IF you’re looking for a hosiery heaven like me, try the online store where these beauties came from. The selection is broad and they have all the crazy inspirational gorgeous stuff you’d usually see on blogs/online shops that don’t deliver to Romania.

AND here are some of my on-store favorites:

Nu lăsaţi, fără doar şi poate, copiii să inhaleze fumul dumneavoastră

În lumea modernă ştiinţa a inventat tot soiul de mănuşi. Oamenii le folosesc ca să

– nu le crape manichiura

– nu facă copii

– pară şic când fumează pe gerul Bobotezii

– îşi închidă ochii, urechile şi nările (la soare, la parbrizuri sparte sau la fumuri străine)

– spele cu cloramină lenjeria de pe care vor să extermine petele de spermă, de sânge sau de alte feluri de a spune “nu mă uita”.

În Ungaria era vreme de pulover
Azi noapte am visat că părinţii mei naufragiaseră pe un atol din Noua Zeelandă şi nu aveam cum să mă mai întorc la ei:
dar erau fericiţi.
Erau cu siguranţă şi dinozauri acolo

Din cei frumoşi cu spatele lucios verde şi roşu
Eu am obosit să tot umblu în jurul aceluiaşi continent
Aceleiaşi bucăţi de uscat
Pe care o port sub ţesătura aceea ieftină de la un brand suedez de succes.
