This photoshoot in villa Phamphilly in Rome was a while ago, but I never had a chance to put up any of the pictures. I worked with this Photographer on a previous photoshoot. He is very good. You can check out Gianmarco Giorgi’s work here
The clothes I am wearing are all from Porta Portese Market ( my favourite market of all times ha)
Tomorrow I will be going back to Rome for 1 day and 1 night. I am very excited to see my old city again and all it’s magic. To celebrate this I posted some pics from a Magazine shoot I did back in the summer of 2012 with the talented photographer Jeremy Wong
We opted for simple/classic clothing to enhance this Black and white shoot. White is always a good choice to complement black and white photography. I chose a white tennis skirt and simple Tank top (both from Porta portese Market in Rome). For my second outfit I wore Beige Horse riding pants (Primark), a fitted beige top and a brown leather belt( Porta Portese) to pull the look together.
I just noticed I have the exact same Hairstyle right now. Ha I guess you never really change your style even though I am constantly changing my Hair colour and cut, you always return to your original look (Mine being long and bushy hair haha)
Roma, ci vediamo domani
A warm September evening in Rome. So why not do something different? An open-air Shakespeare play in Villa Borghese.
By the way I made those little shorts myself 🙂
I suggest you all to go to these open-air plays that are currently going on in Villa Borghese, Rome. They are fantastic. You can even get a nice aperitivo for 10 euro before you go and watch the play. It is long (usually 2 hours) and I do advise you to bring your own pillow with you if you decide to go with the cheap ticket(10 euro) and sit on the floor.
On another note, soon my dear followers I will post some updates on Dubai. Just so busy right now for the next few weeks.
This was a very enjoyable shoot I did in the midst of Rome’s Fascist area called EUR, which was built by Mussolini. Lots of striking colours and strong poses
I worked with a great Italian/German photographer called Gianmarco Giorgi

See you soon guys! My next post will be from Dubai
I have been living in Torpignattara/Pigneto for a while now (2 years). It’s an area in Rome that is vibrant, multicultural and full of life, even during Ferragosto when all Italians abandon Rome in order to head to the sea.
I was walking through my area this evening coming back from the gym and I was just inspired to write about it. I saw the most unique outfits, ranging from a pair of beautiful see-through shoes worn by a 40 year old Chinese women to the most stunning pink Indian attire worn by young Bangladesh women.
I wish I had my camera at hand, but guys don’t despair, I must try capture some of this vibrancy at some point before I leave to go to Dubai mid-September. I have a month before I leave. Hopefully I will be lucky enough to take some photos of some of the most interesting dressed characters I have ever seen including a Barbie doll lookalike that skates around the neighbourhood usually in the afternoons and some very fabulous Transvestites that tend to come out at night.
Wish me luck xxx
Trench-coats are always a classic with rain or no rain. They instantly make an outfit look sophisticated. Best worn with black or white.
I know it took a while to post part 2. I am just on holidays at the moment in Ireland, and then off to Ibiza, so busy busy busy. But here you go some more great classic shots of me in Rome by the LA Photographer Danny Mendoza.
White top, white skirt, white shoes = Italian classic
