MIRROR MIRROR #7 (EUROPE)
On one of the hottest days of the summer I was anxious. The model had overslept. I waited at the set and thought about the theme of this issue, fame, and the people I interviewed about this.
The now awoken model was on her way. Fame, the interviewees had told me, it happened to them. They caused a furore because they rowed against the current. Despite criticism, uncertainty, they had always stubbornly adhered to their own original style. The train on which the model was travelling had meanwhile stranded somewhere.
I pondered further. The result of fame is celebrity. Okay, then you’re famous, and then what? How do you deal with stardom? “I have never competed with other people. I do not judge and do not compare myself with others”, says Tom Pecheux, YSL global beauty director. Commendable.
Remaining true to yourself, sticking to your goals and working hard. Fame is not something that arrives from thin air. To people who think this, Instagram sensation Lylexox says in this issue: “I take care of quality and work with dedication. Otherwise nothing will happen!”
What fine talents we find again behind, next to, and in front of the camera in this issue. The delayed model finally arrived on the set; how beautiful she was. To work!
