Feelin the Love

I recently noticed that the ad I modeled for last year for the Qantas Frequent Flyer & American Express campaign is up on the artist, Alexia Sinclair's, blog. Thought I'd share the love since I was so chuffed to work with such an amazing artist. When you admire an artists work so much... to then actually get to be in one of her pieces... I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet!

The Primrose Path: Ophelia

There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray you, love, remember:

 and there is pansies; that's for thoughts.

There's fennel for you, and columbines: 

there's rue for you; and here's some for me: we may call it
herb of grace o' Sundays

There's a daisy: I would give you some violets, 
but they withered all when my father died.

Channeling Ophelia for a little while tonight instead of Juliet. Felt like changing it up a little :-)

Almost Friday...

That Which We Call a Rose...

My only escape from the trials & tribulations of moving house at the moment is rehearsing for a very witty spoof on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. I always find rehearsing a wonderful form of escapism from everyday life. Being Juliet for a little while each week is a nice change, just for a little while.

So with the famous star-crossed lovers on my mind right now I bring you these breathtaking Romeo & Juliet images shot by none other than Annie Leibovitz for Vogue USA, starring Ballet dancer Roberto Bolle & model Coco Rocha.

"When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun." 
~ William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet

Here's to a fanciful week, of daydreams, wild imaginations,  stargazing & more...
