Transformation – Gwen Stefani


Category : Fashion and Beauty, Photos and Media

When you say Gwen Stefani you immediately think of non-conformism and, inevitably, of a style icon.

She may be different than the others but, in spite of her weird choices of clothing, she seems to be always brilliant in the spotlight. Her secret? Attitude, confidence in herself and enthusiasm towards the style approach.

Even if her outfits reflect only to a certain extent the general trends of the season, even if she has experienced weird haircuts and unusual hair colors, Gwen’s style subscribes itself to a certain pattern close to the edge, which allows her to constantly improvise and juggle.

Thus, when you think about the Gwen Stefani image, you invariably think about a whole list of features and options of clothing and beauty, which successfully complete glamorous picture of punk diva of the years’40:

* Vintage clothes (the’20-’40);
* Unusual combinations of elegant and sporty pieces of clothing;
* Influence of eastern culture … especially in India and Japan (Harajuku);
* Dramatic make-up, never missing the red lipstick, whether that is in trend or not;
* Peroxide blonde hair, often caught or arranged in the style of Cleopatra.

Now take a look at this astonishing transformation as you watch the changes Gwen has been gone through since 1998!

Romanians in the World – Mario Catană


Category : Fashion and Beauty, Romania in the World

Time to boast about some Romanians again! This time I’ve chosen a person from the fashion industry. His name: Mario Catana.

He started modeling when he was 10. It all began as a joke, his sister took him at one of her castings. Lucky guy, he began working right after college, during a period when boys like him were at in high demand. His slim and high figure enabled him to model for all Romanian famous designers. He finished college, played the role of the journalist for a while until he finally decided to travel. He gathered a lot of experience in 5 years, getting noticed in shows like Armani, Carlo Pignatelli, Francesco Smalto, Konrad Muhr or in French banks, shampoos, and beer commercials rolling all over the world. He is currently the Armani image in the world. (Yellow!) He was designated “Male Model of the Year” in 2004. He speaks of himself as being shy, but ambitious, obsessed with cleaning up, extremely self-criticizing and…obsessed with modeling. (No way…really?)

“The people from the agency called me and told me to take a seat for they have something important to tell me. How did I feel? Vibrating, accomplished and feeling I have touched my goals. The first thing I did right after was to call my parents and my sister to tell them. “

We’re proud of you too, Mario!
