Press release

New York atmosphere for the “OPTICAL ART FASHION EXHIBITION” presentation event By Photographer Michael Stabile.

On June 27th 2018 the vernissage took place in one of the most prestigious locations in the Capital: Aleph Rome Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton. Many present among the press, guests and friends of the Photographer Michael Stabile. The evening ended with an aperitif offered in the elegant spaces of the roof-garden.

The exhibition of the high fashion photographer Michael Stabile is part of the national and international calendar of ALTAROMA section In Town, JUNE 2018 edition.

The eight 70/100 works conceived and produced by Michael Stabile illustrate the “Optical Art”, which is closely linked to the movements of the Kinetic Art that was born around the sixties and deepens the examination and study of the two-dimensional illusion.

The optical Art Fashion of Stabile was made by him in the pose room in December 2016. The Photographer Stabile uses the original fabric from which the dress derives using it as a backdrop and physically positioning the model in a geometric line to offer the viewer a unique it works in two dimensions and gives the impression of movement and hidden image. The work thus becomes a “unique example produced in Haute Couture”.

The Photographic Exhibition is on display at the Aleph Rome Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton

June 27th to July 31st 2018 admission free.

Michael, “My photography of Haute Couture comes from a strong attraction I have towards Women, especially I feel attracted by a female Woman who in her gestures, expressions and ways of being seduces me and becomes my inspiring muse. My Woman does not follow “mode” and does not respect the status quo in any way “.

“My eyes reveal the images of my being, enclosing the awareness that in photography as in life depends entirely on one point of view. I believe that man should be free, witnessing the enormous beauty of the world and acquiring a certainty that allows him to see and express his vision “.

Photography for Michael is not just technical or study, but it is something much more complex, it is the result of his experiences, his culture, his unique and non-reproducible vision.

THE FOULARD SUMMER ACCESSORY

Posted on Updated on

 

There is a hair accessory that Pinterest loves in a particular way: the scarf. And you will immediately have eyes in your heart, because for the warm season it seems the complement of which your locks need. It gives you a chic but casual air, you can manage it as you prefer, turning it into a hair band, a bandana or a bow for your ponytail. Or if you love braids, it will be the “lock” to fit between the others.

The scarf is versatile, and, depending on your imagination, you can combine it with any style. There is only one small problem, but with our advice you can easily get around it. The fabric of which it is made, like silk, often tends to slip easily, especially if you have long, thin hair. If this is your problem, apply styling products that thicken and create more friction to keep your accessory in place.

To give you further push, know that since 2018 the designers have re-fallen in love and on the catwalks, from Dolce & Gabbana to Armani, have brought him back into fashion, creating an afro, hippy look inspired by the ’50s mood. And for the stars too, it has been a must-have ever-present beauty. What are you waiting for to experience it too? Here are some ideas to understand how to bring it and adapt it to your spring summer style.

SPRING – SUMMER 2017 PLAIT

Posted on

Plaits appeared on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks in every imaginable form – from skater-girl braided buns at Dior to bohemian skinny plaits at Roberto Cavalli and romantic rope braids at Valentino and everything in between. As Guido Palau told us backstage at Dior, “there’s a plait to suit everyone”. Pick your favourite style below.

Complement spring’s sporty silhouettes with extra-long twin braids – at Emporio Armani, extensions were woven into the plaits so that they reached down to models’ waists.

 

Guido Palau cited skater girls as one of the references for the plaited buns he created at Dior, worn scraped back from the face and offset by J’Adior earrings.

 

Bohemian girls will be immediately drawn to the laid-back styles at Roberto Cavalli – softly tousled waves with two skinny plaits at the front.

 

James Pecis’s cool-girl braids at Simone Rocha were complemented by dewy skin and baby-hair strands around the face, giving models a post-workout look somewhat less sweaty than the reality.

 

For the true romantic, Valentino’s extra-long loose plaits were fastened low at the nape of the neck, whilst stray strands of hair around the face made for a pretty, youthful look.

 

Forgetting the scene-stealing face flowers by Val Garland just for the moment, the plaits at Preen By Thornton Bregazzi were messy, haphazard and anything but preppy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BARBARA PALVIN SO PRETTY

Posted on Updated on

Wherever Barbara Palvin goes, there’s a little dust storm of controversy. Back when she was a 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, Selena Gomez fans blamed her for the singer’s breakup with Justin Bieber after Palvin was spotted with him at a Broadway show. Palvin has since been linked to One Direction’s Niall Horan; she’s been seen partying with Ed Sheeran; and, since the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, she’s been rumored to be dating Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton.

On the day I chatted with Palvin, who is at home in the countryside outside of Budapest, she laughed at her reputation as a man-eater—though the laughter was undercut by a clear note of annoyance. Days earlier, a British tabloid posted a picture of her sitting on a man’s lap at an event for the Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi. “That’s not Lewis Hamilton! Barbara Palvin gets cozy with mystery man,” the headline gasped.

“Normally, I don’t let it get to me,” she tells me. The “mystery man” was, in fact, her Italian agent, a dear friend. “I actually hang out with a lot of guys, and whenever I hang out with a famous guy, I’m instantly dating them. So I just laugh it off.” This time, though, Palvin said the comments crossed the line. “It was: ‘Of course she’s hitting on that guy. He’s probably old and rich.’ Oh bravo, Daily Mail !”

No, Palvin doesn’t need to date rich men to belong to the jet set. “It drives me a little crazy that people would think that.”

HARNESS THE POWER OF NATURAL DIURETICS

The difference between feeling model-esque, not cinched, in your Balmain body-con dress may be just a few pounds—of water. “You can retain up to five pounds of extra fluid,” says Jeffrey Morrison, a physician and founder of the Morrison Center in New York, who suggests sipping water-eliminating teas like dandelion or fennel two or three times a day. (Try Traditional Medicinals Dandelion Leaf & Root Tea, $5.29 for 16 bags.) Other de-bloating elixirs: Ask your juice joint to press a celery-centric concoction, and take a 500-milligram parsley capsule twice a day.

Drink Two Glasses of Water Before Every Meal

“It sounds counterintuitive, but you need to drink water to lose water,” says Lauren Slayton, a nutritionist and founder of Foodtrainers in New York. Along with drinking a minimum of 64 ounces daily, Slayton recommends front-loading meals with two cups of H2O “for maximum appetite reduction; it’ll make you feel full and help you eat less.” Adds Vanessa Packer, a holistic nutritionist at Model­Fit in New York, “Avoid seltzer and sparkling water—they cause bloating.”

Get Eight Hours of Sleep

“When you get seven-and-a-half to eight hours of sleep, your body is more equipped to get rid of stress hormones, and your metabolism improves,” says Morrison. And taking a vitamin D3 supplement daily may help you sleep better and therefore improve weight loss too. One theory is that when D3 is low, hunger hormones increase, and when you’re not deficient in D, melatonin—the body’s natural sleep aid—works more effectively. Slayton suggests taking 2,000 IUs of D3 daily.

Avoid All Processed Foods

Which means not only skipping the obvious culprits (chips, cookies, candy) but also anything that is prepackaged (store-bought bread, pasta, cheese), and even canned tuna and almond milk, which may be packed with sodium and sugar, respectively. Opt for whole grain bread from a local bakery; it won’t be heavily processed, and avoid anything made with white flour (it has no nutritional value), says Morrison. Skip all dairy too, including Greek yogurt. Replacing all inflammatory foods (sugar, wheat, dairy) with whole foods and vegetables can produce rapid results, Morrison adds.

“Your Spinning class will burn calories, but it won’t give you the powerful after-burn effect of HIIT.”

Carve Out Your Belly

Strengthening your body’s natural corset muscles is a surefire way to get a flat belly naturally. Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson (who got Khloé Kardashian in rock-body shape) suggests doing this simple but powerful plank sequence every day: Get into a plank position (forearms on the floor, core engaged, legs straight) at just less than arm’s length from a wall. While keeping your core centered—don’t move side to side—alternate touching the wall with each hand as many times as possible in one minute. Repeat five times. The goal: Every round, tap the wall more times, says Peterson.

Ditch Alcohol Completely

Not. A. Sip. “One, it affects your sleep, and we know that in turn affects your metabolism and hunger cravings,” explains Slayton. “Two, it definitely causes you to retain extra fluid.” The third, and most damaging, reason: “You don’t burn any other fat or calories until your body rids itself of that 100-, 200-, or 300-calorie cocktail, so you’re putting yourself behind in terms of calorie-burning from the start,” she says.

Do 30 Minutes of HIIT Every Day

Your Spinning class will burn calories, but it won’t give you the powerful after-burn effect of high-intensity interval training. Oliver Lee, a trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp in New York, recommends this 30-minute circuit: For each exercise go as fast and as intensely as you can for 40 seconds, followed by 20 seconds of rest. Repeat the sequence six times. 1. Fast feet. 2. 180-degree squat jumps. 3. Squat to side kick (alternating legs). 4. Two push-ups into four mountain climbers. 5. Finish with shoulder-tap burpees: Go into a plank, touch each shoulder with the opposite hand four times, then jump up into the air.
