From the A pillar to Verve

I know Lucire is not a car maga­zine, but I thought I should clarify my state­ments about the A-pillar area on the Peu­geot 308 SW being messy. At left is a photo­graph I took on my old cell illus­trating what I meant. Some people might like all these lines that go nowhere and every­where—I don’t.
   While we also have an Audi A4 review online, more importantly, Bron Williams’ interview with tattooed hairstylist extraordinaire Richard Kavanagh is now on-site, and Bulgari had a bash for its 125th birthday.
   Elyse Glickman, meanwhile, talks to Deborah Anderson, on her new photographic book, Paperthin.
   Meanwhile, I should publicly acknowledge that Parmesh Shahani (below right), editorial director of Verve, whom I caught up with yesterday, thought Parmesh Shahanithat Stanley Moss hit the nail on the head with his choice of northern Indian luxury resorts. He says that most non-Indians wouldn’t have known of these, and that Stanley did his research in finding the truly best.
   Verve has an amazing issue coming up in a few months. I am sworn to secrecy, but Indians will love it when that issue hits the stands.

Doutzen Kroes in 7 for All Mankind
Above: Doutzen Kroes remains in fifth place in 2009, with US$6 million earned between June 2008 and June 2009, says Forbes.

Forbes this week released its list of the world’s top earning models, estimating their income earned between June 2008 and June 2009.
   The magazine notes that the recession has hit earnings. While Gisèle BĂźndchen remains in the top spot with US$25 million earned, it’s US$10 million down from her 2008 figure. While Victoria’s Secret is no longer part of BĂźndchen’s deals, she still has Versace, True Religion, Dior and Ebel. She added Rampage to her brands.
   Heidi Klum retains her number-two spot, this year at US$16 million, thanks to her endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Volkswagen, McDonald’s and LG, and programmes such as Project Runway and Germany’s Next Top Model. Klum improved on her 2008 figure by US$2 million.
   Kate Moss remained at third with US$8¡5 million, with Versace, Longchamp and Topshop among the brands using her face.
   Adriana Lima stayed at fourth, half a million dollars behind at US$8 million. Victoria’s Secret is her most popular endorsement deal.
   Both Moss and Lima increased their earnings by around US$1 million since 2008.
   Doutzen Kroes remained in fifth with the same figure as 2008, at US$6 million. Forbes notes that while her de Beers contract ended, she replaced it with one for Seven for All Mankind.
   She was joined in fifth by Alessandra Ambrosio, buoyed by a Victoria’s Secret contract. Ambrosio was not in the top 10 last year.
   Natalia Vodianova remained seventh (US$5¡5 million) and Daria Werbowy came up one place to eighth (US$4¡5 million). Australian Miranda Kerr also went up one place, to ninth equal (US$3 million). Carolyn Murphy fell one spot to equal with Kerr.
   New Victoria’s Secret face Emanuela de Paula is new to the list, with US$2¡5 million.
   Forbes did not list to the 16th place this year.

Last weekend, 25,000 enthusiasts from over 40 countries attended the Mini United Festival at Silverstone to celebrate the 50th anniversary of an automotive icon. It’s hard to believe that the Mini celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, having cemented itself as one of the 20th century’s most significant cars and a style icon in its own right.
   Footage includes various special editions (remember the plethora of these in the 1980s?), Mini fans gathered at Silverstone, driving shots of the new limited-edition Camden and Mayfair models, and commentaries from Ian Robertson of the Board of Management at Mini, rally legend Rauno Aaltonen, designer Paul Smith, and musician and “modfather” Paul Weller.

Hayley Scanlan and Erin O’Connor

University of Dundee graduate Hayley Scanlan, 25, made the perfect start to her career as a textile designer by making her first sale to model Erin O’Connor.
   O’Connor, who also chairs the British Fashion Council, was in Dundee to open the Dundee Degree Show 2009 at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design last week.
   At the end of the show, the University says that O’Connor made a beeline backstage to order a white leather studded jacket from Scanlan. The jacket has black screen-printed drip panels and gold and silver studs.
   â€˜I am a person like anyone else—I like to shop and I love fashion and when I saw that jacket I thought, “I have to have that first!”’ she said.
   The Degree Show opened to the public on May 23 and runs at the Vision Building until June 6.

German actress Diane Kruger wore Jason Wu to the opening of the Jaeger–LeCoultre Cannes boutique opening on Tuesday. She was in Cannes to attend the première of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (sic).
   Kruger is the brand ambassador for Jaeger–LeCoultre. Also attending was CEO JĂŠrĂ´me Lambert.
   This year seems like Wu’s year: not only has Kruger chosen his designs, he is reportedly a favourite of American First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Azra Duliman, Miss Sweden 2009

Azra Duliman is the new Miss Sweden 2009, crowned on May 15 at the Scandinavian Congress of Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
   Duliman is a 23-year‐old law student from Stockholm, with experience from working with young immigrants and engaged in human rights. She has a multicultural background, and said she would take the opportunity to spread a message of self‐esteem and inner confidence. This made an impact on the jury. Duliman is a Muslim, which may make her the first Miss Sweden practising the Islamic faith at the time of her crowning.
   â€˜The most important task for Miss Sweden is to be able to represent Sweden as a modern country, in many different situations. Looking good in a bathing suit is truly not enough,’ says Panos Papadopoulos, the head and owner of the Miss Sweden brand, and founder of the New Miss Sweden concept.
   Earlier this year, Lucire reported that there had been differences between Miss Universe and the Miss Sweden organization. Papadopoulos alleged that the Miss Universe Organization would not accept his changes in modernizing the pageant and the Organization unilaterally broke off their connection.
