Paris Fashion Week – sept 27 – Jardins des Tuileries – After Nina Ricci fashion show
People from the fashion industry were leaving the show, walking across the Tuileries gardens. Street style Photographers were all over the place, running after stylish women, stopping them to take in picture their outfit and close shots of their bags, high heels, accessories… Fashion week after fashion week, these kind of street style photographers still don’t understand what makes fashion weeks such great moments in the world of fashion : LIFE. I wrote it hundreds times on Style and the City : style is just the cloth of your personality. Natural beauty comes from Happiness and photogenic from Generosity.
Women and stylish people will never be coatracks for me. That’s why, as street style photographers were focused on shooting of bags, shoes, accessories… I was rather attracted by the complicity between Nicole Phelbs and Marina Larroude. I like them very much. They are cool, humble, and always offer me a nice smile. I like to surprise them, especially when they feel shy. Remember how gorgeous Marina was during my New York Fashion Week (page 3) after Diesel show. Remember how gracious Nicole Phelpbs was during my first Milan fashion Week !
Here they were, here I was, lucky enough to see no street style photographers interrupting them for a boring street style picture of their outfit. Marina was showing to Nicole a text message that were making her laugh. 2 pretty stylish women having fun : it’s a dreamt moment for the humanist street style photographer I am. As a former TV writer and stand up comedian (just few months, but what a thrilling experience to be on stage !), my imagination started to take off : what if the text message was from George Clooney ? What if George Clooney was teasing Marina or trying to flirt with her ? What if George was confessing that Brad Pitt was jealous ? What if … ?
I stayed hidden as long as possible cause I wanted to capture every instant of their complicity and happiness. Seeing people happy makes me happy. Happiness feeds me better than food cause happiness brings me hope in a better world. Thank you very much Nicole and Marina for this sweet moment and your complicity.
Marina, now you can tell us what George Clooney wrote you ? LOL
