Giambattista Valli beauty AW17 show

Et af mine absolut favorit shows under modeugen i Paris var Giambattista Valli. Kollektionen var smuk, lokationen var ikonisk, håret var edgy og makeuppen var iøjenfaldende. Jeg var, før showet, backstage hvor jeg så hvordan den blodige læbe kom til verden. Jeg var vild med hvordan der blev brugt en lidt koldere rød læbestift med blå undertoner og ikke den klassiske, franske røde. Det passede helt perfekt til kollektionen og var særligt flot på brunetterne der gik showet. Huden var holdt dewy, klassisk og smuk, med buskede bryn og let bukkede øjenvipper. Stående bifald herfra!

english: One of my absolute favorite shows in Paris this season was Giambattista Valli. The collection was beautiful, the location was iconic, the hair was edgy and the makeup, eye catching. I was, before the show, backstage where I saw the bloody lip come to life. I love how they used a slightly colder red with blue undertones for the look instead of the classic french red. It complimented the collection just perfect and was especially beautiful on the brunettes that walked the show. The skin was kept dewy, classic and beautiful with bushy brows and lightly bended eyelashes. Applause from here!

At fotografere synes jeg er noget af det vigtigste i verden. Billeder er på en måde forevigt og selvom det måske nogengange kan virke som om øjeblikket ikke er “nødvendigt” at foreviggøre så er det det højst sandsynligt alligevel. Jeg synes det er meget fascinerede at se billeder fra min bedstemors barndom eller portrætter af min far da han var barn. Det giver tilværelsen lidt mere mening på en måde. I dag kan man jo selvfølgelig fotografere hele tiden, ved hjælp af sin telefon. Men for mig er det noget helt særligt at fotografere med et “rigtigt” kamera. Et poloroid kamera. Jeg har mit poloroid kamera med mig over alt når jeg er ude og rejse. Jeg elsker at foreviggøre en tur på den her måde, ligge billederne i en lille kasse og kigge på dem når det regner i København.

english: To photograph is in my opinion one of the most important things in the world. Photos are a way to make your presence last forever. And even though, sometimes in the situation, it doesn’t seem like it is a moment worth forever making. I guarantee it is. I find it beyond fascinating looking at pictures from my grandmothers childhood or seeing a portrait of my dad as a child. It really gives the presence a deeper meaning. In the prescent day of course, photographing is super easy. You just pull out your phone. But there is just something special about photographing with a “real” camera. A poloroid camera. I bring mine with me absolutely everywhere I go when I am traveling. I love to make a trip forever this way, put the poloroid photos in a little box and look at them when it’s a grey day in Copenhagen.

Endnu en ting vi nåede tirsdag formiddag da regnen endelig holdt op, kaffe. Og endnu et stykke tøj som måtte hænge helt alene på hotel værelset mens vi var ude og trodse det grimme vejr. Min nye Gucci blazer. Jeg så denne blazer sidste sæson i Gucci’s showroom i Milano og var ved at falde på halen over den. Jeg tror jeg var henne og kigge på den 5 gange på den halve time vi var der. Havde helt ondt i maven da vi gik derfra. Da Laura og jeg så var i Milano denne gang var vi (selvfølgelig) inde i deres flagship butik og der hang den. Oh nej! Laura sagde at jeg absolut måtte prøve den for hvis nu den sad dårligt så kunne jeg i det mindste få den ud af hovedet. Det gjorde den så bare slet ikke. Den sad selvfølgelig som en drøm og jeg måtte købe den. Det er det største køb jeg nogensinde har gjort og jeg er meget stolt af den. Hollywood forever!

english: Another thing we just had time for on Tuesday when the rain stopped, coffee. And to shoot yet another piece of clothing that had to stay in the hotelroom while Laura and I were out fighting off the weather. My new Gucci blazer. I saw this blazer last season at the Gucci showroom in Milan and was just instantly smitten. I think I went over to touch it at least 5 times in the half hour we were there. I swear my stomach hurt when I left. So when Laura and I were in Milan this time we went to the Gucci flagship store (a must visit) just for inspiration  And there it was. Oh no! Laura told me that I absolutely had to try it on because if it didn’t fit me right I could get it off my mind. A perfect point. But of course it fit me like a glove and I had to get it. It’s the biggest purchase I have ever done and I am very proud of it. Hollywood forever!

Paris var den vådeste modeuge i hele min modeuge historie. Det regnede ikke bare, det regnede på den måde hvor der konsekvent lå 2 cm vand på fortorvet og du var våd fra knæet og ned efter at have gået 10 meter. Efter hele dage hvor vi besøgte alverdens showrooms og så en masse shows i våde støvler blev det til takeaway på værelset om aftenen. Kolde og næsten udmattede fra det anstrengende vejr. Heldigvis havde vi set på nettet at det ikke skulle regne tirsdag formiddag så vi stod über tidligt op for at nå at skyde bare lidt materiale inden vi skulle afsted mod lufthavnen kl. 10. Dette outfit var et af dem jeg havde glædet mit aller mest til at have på i Paris men af ren og skær ærefrygt over for denne helt fantastiske kjole måtte den blive pænt i kufferten. Den skulle ikke ud i regnen. Jeg er ellers sikker på den ville have været et hit. Jeg har stylet den baglæns så knapperne sad på ryggen i stedet for foran – jeg er helt vild med den metervare som er brugt til at skabe denne kjole. En sand Maria favorit! Glad for at være hjemme i nogenlunde tørre København igen.

english: Paris was the wettest fashionweek in the whole of fashionweek history (I assume). It didn’t just rain, it rained in that way where there is 2 centimeters of water on the sidewalk and you are wet from the knee and down after walking 10 meters. After whole days of walking around in wet boots to shows and showroom appointments we ended up in our room, exhausted and drowning in takeaway. Luckily we had read online that it wouldn’t rain Tuesday morning so we got up super early just to shoot a little bit of material from the trip. We had to leave for the airport at 10. This outfit was actually one of my favorites and I had been saving it for Paris because I thought it would fit the city perfectly. But it unfortunately had to stay in the suitcase, I would never take a beauty like this out into the rain. And it sucks cause I was sure it would have been a hit. I styled the dress backwards so the buttons were on the back instead of the front. I am absolutely in love with the fabric used to create this dress! A true Maria favorite. BTW so happy to be home in somewhat dry Copenhagen again.

Når to halvfjollede piger fra Danmark planlægger en tur til Paris uden at få nogen form for anbefaling til hoteller – ja så sker der nogengange nogle overraskelser. Vi booked et lille, fransk indrettet hotel med super anmeldelser, billeder af smukke store værelser og udsigt til triumf buen. Historien var dog lidt en anden da vi ankom og vi havde da slet ikke regnet med at finde denne godt gemte (og godt brugte) instagram himmel på jord. Selvom rummene er meget mindre end på billederne og vi ikke helt kan forstå alle de anmeldelser vi har læst, ja så er vi helt oppe og køre over at have fundet lige præcis denne. Denne palme betrukket, lyserøde bubblegum indhyllet gang som er lige uden for vores hotelværelse. Det er som om vi er trådt ind i en retro tidskapsel hvor indretningen ikke er lavet på denne måde fordi det er “in” lige nu men fordi det altid har set sådan ud. Meget Miami på coke agtigt og mega fedt!

english: When two silly girls from Denmark plan a trip to Paris without recommendations – sometimes surprises happen. We booked a small french style hotel with great reviews, beautiful pictures of huge rooms and view of Arc de Triumph. When we came though, we didn’t expect to find a hidden (and slightly worn out) instagram heaven of today. Even though the rooms are a lot smaller than shown in the photos and we can’t really understand the reason behind the great reviews we read, we were so happy to find just this. This palm printed, pink wallpaper hallway outside of our hotelroom. We have stepped into a retro time capsule where nothing is there because it’s “hip” right now but it has always been there. Very Miami with a side of coke, I love it!

Afsted igen, så er det i aften jeg flyver afsted mod Paris endnu engang med verdens bedste Laura. Vi skal flyve med lækre Airfrance, det glæder jeg mig ALTID til – selvom det er en kort tur må det gerne være en dejlig tur. Vi besluttede os for at tage slutningen af Paris modeugen denne gang i stedet for hele perioden. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at det godt kan være en anelse udmattende at være til modeuge og den sidste slæber jeg mig ofte lidt afsted til. Så det har været dejligt lige at have nogle dage her hjemme inden jeg skal afsted igen. Vi ses i Paris (Anastasia pun intended)!

english: Off we go again. I am flying to Paris tonight with the worlds best Laura. We are flying with beloved Airfrance, something I always look forward to! Eventhough it’s a short ride, there is nothing wrong with it being a nice ride! We decided to cover the end of Paris Fashionweek this time instead of the whole period. It should be no secret that it can be exhausting to be at fashionweek, especially the last one, I almost drag myself to the airport. It has been lovely to spend a few days at home before being on the go again. Will be seeing you in Paris (Anastasia pun intended)!
