Polly Styrene RIP

Free Portrait Offer

    As both regular readers will be aware I am working with my nephew to create a new portfolio. We have some fun ideas for shoots.

    This of mutual benefit: It gives me experience of model direction and gives him practice at modelling.

    However I want to gain more experience of portrait photography. To this end I am offering Bloggers in the London area (and those in Essex living close to Havering) a free photo shoot.

    If you are interested, contact me at noreply@blogger.com to discuss requirements (no naughty photos of course!). I will come to you, take the photos. I will then send you photos by email. You are free then to download, make prints etc.

    The only condition is that any photos I consider to be of merit will appear on my photography website. They will not identify you by either real or blogger name.

    Unlike my post about the First cosmonaut on 1 April this is not a hoaxSource URL: http://katierae-bandgeeksclothesandicecream.blogspot.com/2011/04/

Top chef Joel Robuchon opens Singapore restaurants

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Top chef Joel Robuchon opens Singapore restaurants.

     
    French celebrity chef Joel Robuchon on Wednesday announced the opening of two restaurants at a casino resort in Singapore, his first outlets in Southeast Asia.

    L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, a workshop-inspired concept with chefs closely interacting with guests, and the more formal Joel Robuchon Restaurant will open on Thursday at the seaside Resorts World Sentosa complex.

    Robuchon, 66, has received more stars from Michelin, the leading guide to fine dining, than any other chef in the world with a total of 26 so far.

    There are 22 restaurants carrying his name, from Paris and other European cities to Las Vegas, New York, Tokyo, Nagoya, Hong Kong, Taipei and Macau.

    “Today we are very happy to be in Singapore, especially because when we travel around the world, we meet a lot of Singaporean guests,” Robuchon said.

    “They are very refined, very elegant, they know their wines very well, they know their food very well. So it is a very good time to be in Singapore right now,” he added.

    The 54-seat Joel Robuchon Restaurant is a fine dining restaurant serving classic French cuisine “with the quality of service of a three Michelin-star restaurant,” a press statement said.

    L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, with 52 seats, is more experimental and draws inspiration from the preparation of Japanese cuisine and the atmosphere of Spanish tapas bars, it added.

    Malaysian-owned Resorts World Sentosa and Singapore’s other casino complex, US-owned Marina Bay Sands, have attracted foreign celebrity chefs keen to tap into the affluent Southeast Asian and international tourist market in Singapore.

Carnival takes delivery of newest ship

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Carnival takes delivery of newest ship.

     
    As guests on board cruise lines around the world prepare to toast the royal wedding April 29, Carnival Cruise lines has bucked the trend by announcing that it will be toasting its new ship, the Carnival Magic.

    Guests on board all 100 of Carnival’s ships — some 227,000 in total — will be offered a complimentary champagne toast at dinner April 29, to recognize the delivery of the 3,690-passenger Carnival Magic.

    Fiercely royal Cunard (itself Carnival-owned), for its part, released photos April 27 of its flagship Queen Mary 2 being loaded with Veuve Clicquot champagne and commemorative wedding cakes ahead of its “Royal Wedding Celebrations at Sea.”

    Carnival Magic will set off on her maiden cruise May 1, leaving Venice for Barcelona before crossing the Atlantic to Galveston, Texas in the fall.

    At 130,000 tons, she will be the largest ship ever to be based at Galveston and features some unique innovations, including an expansive open-air fitness complex with the first ropes course at sea (placed dizzyingly high above the water), a wraparound promenade with outdoor barbecue and the Waterworks Aqua Park.

    According to reports in Australian publication eTravel Blackboard, she will also feature the largest show ever on board a Carnival ship, Destination: Unknown, starring stage magician and Las Vegas regular jean valencias Byrne.

    A comedy club, 1970s dance show, entertainment restaurant (complete with singing and dancing wait staff) and on-board game show will also be offered to travelers.

Mario Sorrenti to shoot next Pirelli calendar

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Mario Sorrenti to shoot next Pirelli calendar.

     
    The illustrious calendar’s casting director, Jennifer Starr, has confirmed that Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti is 2012′s Pirelli man, Stylecaster reports.

    Other fashion sites, including Fashion Copius and Fashionologie, had previously assumed that Steven Meisel would capture next year’s edition.

    Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, or Patrick Demarchelier were chosen to shoot the calendar, which is commissioned by Italian tire company Pirelli, in past years.

    Sorrenti, who is best known for his artful nudes in the pages of magazines such as Vogue, is expected to bring back a high-fashion feel following Lagerfeld’s timelessly elegant and Richardson’s sexually provocative pictures.

    This year’s model cast, which regularly includes the freshest and most famous of faces, has not been confirmed.

    Pirelli’s calendar gets released at the end of the year, but only to a handful of the company’s clients and business partners.

    A more accessible option is French Vogue’s yearly calendar, for instance, which is just as racy and fashionable and which also enlists the world’s top photographers and fashion models.

Ralph Lauren car collection goes on display in Paris

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Ralph Lauren car collection goes on display in Paris.

     
    A selection of cars owned by fashion legend Ralph Lauren will go on display in Paris this week, in a unique exhibition of one of the world’s most distinctive collections.

    Ralph Lauren, who famously described cars as “moving art” in his 2004 book Speed, Style and Beauty, owns an extensive collection of vehicles which is rarely seen by the public — until now.

    Seventeen models selected from the 1930s until the present day will be on display, offering a unique glimpse at the tastes of a major name in the fashion world.

    Among the exhibits will be the Bentley Blower of 1929, immortalized in Ian Fleming’s early James Bond novels, a Mercedes-Benz SSK from 1930 owned by racing driver Count Carlo Felice Trossie and a Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupe, one of only four ever made (and only two that remain).

    Ferrari fans are well catered for — there are four in the collection — with a 375 Plus from 1954 (designed under the direction of Pinin Farina himself) and a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from 1957 by automotive legend Sergio Scaglietti.

    Ralph Lauren has collected the sounds of the engines online and to celebrate the launch, a Discovery Channel documentary on Ralph Lauren’s cars will be broadcast in France, Belgium and Switzerland on July 2 and July 3.

    The Art of the Automobile is open April 28 through August 28 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

Arabian fantasy for royal wedding

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Arabian fantasy for royal wedding.

     
    Luxury hotels in the United Arab Emirates are offering their guests an Arabian fantasy as Britain’s Prince William marries Catherine Middleton on Friday.

    The Emirates Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, promises “a majestic experience fit for a king and deserving of an emperor” and said it wants to make the day unforgettable for its guests too.

    The Palace, which bills itself as a seven-star hotel, offered an overnight stay from a modest $450 to $1,500 (300-1,010 euros) with a royal high tea thrown in.

    “We are making sure to have them enjoy a unique wedding in a unique set up and surrounding,” said Emirates Palace general manager Hans Olbertz.

    The hotel has suites going up to $11,500, according to its published rates. “Come and join this Arabian fantasy,” the hotel invites its guests. Included in the prices is a free buffet breakfast.

    Dubai’s landmark Burj Al-Arab which is designed to resemble the sails of an Arabian dhow, offered a chance to win free nights at the super luxury hotel for those joining the royal wedding party there.

    “Be sure to arrive in your finest dress and have a chance to win a two-night stay… for the best dressed, most elegant hat and most stylish couple,” the hotel said.

    It said it will be “business as usual for Burj Al-Arab” on Friday although the popular Friday brunch will be turned into a “grand royal brunch” where a “bottle of the bubbly” will be thrown in on the house.

    Most restaurants and bars in the UAE plan to show the day’s events on big screens hoping to cash in on the royal wedding fever that also coincides with the weekend in the region.
