Describe yourself in three to four sentences.
Fashion stylist & all-round creative, all over the place, good vibes only.
Where do you find inspiration for daily looks?
All the time, actually. When I’m shopping for a styling production or editorial shoot, when I browse through magazines, Pinterest or Instagram, when I’m with friends, when I’m at a party - there is always something that inspires me to try something new.
You recently switched from blonde to brunette, why did you decide to commit to the ‘brown side’?
I was once told: ‘Every girl should be blond at least once in their lives’, so I did it, and it was awesome! Felt like the super-hero-version of myself. Unfortunately, my hair broke down very heavily, so the only thing left to do was to cut it short and to go back to my roots again. New goal: super long hair! And maybe, some day, back to Blondie-blond.
When do you feel vulnerable?
When I’m in an argument with someone I love.
What’s your favourite movie snack?
Super dark chocolate and light salted popcorn, yum!
What’s your secret to master the art of outfit layering?
Put a rack in your room and hang all of your favourite clothes on there – you spot new, unexpected combinations immediately!
How did you decide to style this ALIX item?
I’m a suit-lover, so I let the leopard suit be the leopard suit and just added some dancing shoes. I gave the lace some extra Italian-vibes with my favourite leopard Dolce & Gabanna-slingbacks. To tone it down I added a soft, big-striped sweater from one of my favourite denim brands MiH-Jeans.
Crop top or oversized sweater?
Oversized sweaters, preferably combined with mini-shorts.
Which fabric do you enjoy wearing most?
Silk, denim & cashmere, especially worn togethe
LIFE IS BETTER
Palm trees or snowflakes?
Palm trees, without a doubt! Life is better in bikini.
What’s it like, working with your boyfriend on freelance projects?
Big fun, most of the time! It’s so cool to combine super powers and I’m always so proud when I see Friso shine during a production. Thanks to him I directed my first videos -something I would love to do much more. This year we even travelled to South Africa for a big commercial job - whoop! The tricky thing is that you have to watch out that work-talk doesn’t take over your life - I think we do better after each job ;).
Are you a dog or a cat person?
A dog person, without a doubt.
Do you remember buying your first pair of heels?
Yes! I was 15 and shopping was my life. With twenty euros left on my account I decided to spend it on some super trashy, pink patent fake leather high heels. Never worn.
Who’s your snapchat favorite?
I’m more of an Instagram-Stories kinda person actually! I really like the down-to-earth beauty vibes from @glossier.
What’s your favorite instagram account?
That would be @mansurgavriel, @70babes & @twogirlsonepizza
