Che bella donna

Sophia Loren - Stijlmeisje

Sometimes powerful, enduring relationships can develop between photographers and their subjects. Which was definitely the case with Alfred Eisenstaedt and the beautiful, radiant (and one of my personal favourite all time style icons) Italian film legend, Sophia Loren. Eisenstaedt could bring a sparkling interaction out of Sophia that other photographers somehow missed, or simply failed […]

Nomads of the Worl..

Nomads of the World - Saba Tark - Stijlmeisje

Yesterday I visited the exhibition ‘Fashion, the musical‘ in Centraal Museum Utrecht. The museum added two chambers to this exhibition where you can view the work of upcoming talent. It’s a series of exhibitions in which the museum and the HKU (Hogeschool voor de kunsten Utrecht) present the work of promising talent. The series kicks off with […]

Korean flavour

Lee Chaerin - Korean Style - Stijlmeisje

I love to be inspired by influences from all over the world. Especially, when it comes to fashion. There are in the end unique differences between the western and the eastern parts of the world. What’s really interesting is how fashion developed itself in Asia. In particular in South Korea. Beside the fact that I appreciate the […]

Jackie meets India

Jackie Kennedy - Stijlmeisje

It’s now exactly 1 year ago that I visited India. A more than special journey through a more than special and particular colourful country. Although it was a journey which showed a lot of poverty, it did also show a lot of positivity and strength among the people. Admirable…. I recently bumped into these beautiful old […]

Culinary Portfolio

French Cuisse - Food - Stijlmeisje

Last week I mentioned that I rarely write about beauty because I’m just quite a layman when it comes to that. Same thing I can say about food. I like cooking (don’t expect very exceptional dishes…), going out for dinner and taste all kind of (new) things but I’m not what you call nowadays a […]
