Did you already see me? Starting from this week I will be all over the Hunkemöller shops in 16 different countries, OMG pinch me! Some months ago I already did the shoot, with no one less than amazing photographer Paul Bellaart… you know… the guy who usually shoots with Doutzen Kroes.
Last month I was shooting in Dubrovnik for Hunkemöller and it was so much fun! Since I posted travel tips for Hvar and Split last week, I figured I might as well share the most beautiful place I visited while I was in Dubrovnik, with a fun vlog on the side. Also, I will post some of the pictures of the shoot, so you can see what turned out to be the final results!
One of the fastest results of my Tour is this nostalgic editorial for Point Seven Mach! A rather young, yet rapidly growing magazine which publishes online as well as in print:
We don’t care about fashion. We like clothing and pretty things but, above all, we love women. This is all about women.
Not that long ago I went on a trip with Hunkemöller to Berlin, because they were going to announce who was going to be the new face of my favorite lingerie brand…. Doutzen Kroes! I am VERY happy with this choice, and the beautiful collection they created together. Did you already see it? In my vlog you can check out a little sneakpeek of the designs, the beautiful Doutzen, delicious snacks, and a quick tour through Berlin. Thank you SO much Hunkemöller, for letting me join this amazing experience!
Lots of Love,
P.s. I would love it if you would subscribe to my Youtube Channel! I promise I will post awesome videos :)
Hello there Lovelies!
This week I was lucky enough to be invited by Hunkemöller to check out their newest Glam Collection, it’s so beautiful! To get started, they measured me and helped me to find the perfect fit for my bodytype, and then… the shopping started! The Glam Collection has lots of variations with mainly black & red colors, lace, diamonds and strappy details for the perfect sexy holidays. Curious about which two sets I selected? Keep reading and let me know what you think about them :)
For this look I’m going for sexy black lace with garters and hold-ups! The bra has a subtle Push-up for a better shape and I love the cute little rose as a detail on both the bra and the panty. Personally, I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of garters because I am too darn clumsy to get them on, but I have to be honest… once I got them on it felt pretty awesome! Lingerie really does make women feel beautiful!
For the second look I went for a romantic touch with a Kimono and lots of lace! I’m wearing a short top and matching panties with diamond details on the back. The reason I went for this lingerie set is because of the many ways I can wear it: cute and romantic with the kimono, sexy lady with the full transparant look, or adding an extra glam detail to your holiday outfits with an open back. Smart move Hunkemöller!
Up here you see the cute look and in the pictures down below you see the ‘party in the back‘ sexy glam! Don’t you love the beautiful little detail on the panties with matching diamonds? I am going to wear this top during NYE because my dress has an open back and the diamond chains will be an awesome detail, I’m excited already!
Sooo… I am super curious about what you guys think about my choices of the Hunkemöller Glam Collection! Which one is your favorite? Would you go for another set? Let me know!
Lots of Love,
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful sunday! This is in fact my first free day in a long time, so I sure am! It felt like the perfect occasion to share this new lingerie photography series which I received last week from Maarten Quaadvliet. It’s amazing!
This past year I have been very selective with shooting lingerie since I don’t want to get the image of a glamour model, which is quite easy with my curves and platinum blonde hair. However, Maarten Quaadvliet is a master of portraying sexy, strong and feminine beauty, always keeping it classy. Furthermore he is brilliant with light settings and framings, I learned a lot from watching him work and I can’t wait till I have my own professional camera to start practicing!
By the way, you would say that this position looks quite normal right? Believe me, it’s the most uncomfortable thing ever! Lingerie photography is highly underestimated I tell you! Don’t feel bad when you see all those skinny and toned models in the lingerie ads: It’s all a lie! In the picture above I am almost breaking my back to get the perfect ‘ass-curve‘ and keeping in my tummy to look skinnier, don’t even mention keeping a straight face despite the uncomfortable position!
Nice legs right? I was balancing on my toes to make them look more toned. And my tummy is perfectly flat too? Yep it is… after flexing my abs, not breathing, and stretching out my upper body, all while trying to look like I am just comfortably chilling in my living room with sexy lingerie and a coat because who doesn’t do that on a casual sunday ;) Don’t get me wrong, I love modelling and I most definitely love the results of this shoot! I just want to show that when you try to make pictures in lingerie and it doesn’t look like the advertisments… keep in mind that models use many tricks to optimize the way their body looks in certain angles and lights, it’s their job after all!
This immediately brings me to my next point: if I can learn it, so can you! I have been getting so many questions about how I pose and how I create my expressions, that I am considering writing an e-book or making a video tutorial where I explain some of my own modelling tricks & tips. So here I am, checking if anyone would be interested in something like that! Let me know in the comments down below or a private message and maybe it will be one of my new projects :)
Lots of Love,
