Although the month of June shines a light on the LBGTQIA+ community, you know how much I encourage you to keep an open heart and mind throughout the year, and above all to be yourself!
Also, I wanted to go back to my previous articles, update some information and talk about my actions…
I’ve been an ally my entire life and any chance I have to spread more love, I take it.
This photo has been taken at the end of my ceremony – My Solo Wedding in Santorini – a sign from the Universe that I was loved and protected. And everyone should feel that way.
If there are 2 major matters that are very close to my heart, they are marriage and parenthood for all!
Moreover, as a guest of the "Spinster Life Podcast", I spoke extensively about these topics (link in my article 5-year Wedding Anniversary and at the bottom of the MEDIA page).
Everyone should have the right to live their life as they see fit and have access to the same rights as everyone else.
Unfortunately, the reality is very different, and I was confronted with it harshly in 2018 when after My Solo Wedding in Santorini, I wanted to freeze my eggs in France as a single woman. Some countries (including France at that time) prohibit this practice.
I told you about all this, as well as this Australian discovery by Dr. Debra Gook in my article: Superwomen 5.
And since September 2021, the procedure is allowed in France for single women who are between 27 and 39 years old, a start of progress.
During the podcast mentioned above (check Media), I spoke in detail about the freezing of my eggs in Madrid and you can also find all my adventure and procedure in my article: Gift from Science.
With my Solo Wedding in Santorini, I definitely changed the codes and proved to everyone that our life belongs to us and that only we know the ingredients of our happiness.
Read my articles:
Just as same-sex marriage should be legal and recognised everywhere in the world!
I had given you a lot of information on this subject in my article: Superwomen 3.
On this Saturday, June 25, the pride parade takes place in Paris, I take this opportunity to wish a great day to my friends!
Last year, I explained the history and characteristics of the rainbow flag to you in my article: Happy Pride.
The best way to eliminate discrimination and make our world a better place is to first love yourself. It is what enables us to love others for who they are without prejudice or judgment.
So, lead by example and be proud! You are amazing!!

Love & Joy,
In this Pride Month, I wanted to talk to you about this immense French designer who left us at the start of the year, on January 23, 2022.
Manfred Thierry Mugler, was born in 1948 in Strasbourg (France), a classical dancer from an early age, but he also studied interior design, at the end of the 1960s he moved to Paris, and naturally became a fashion designer, then an independent stylist.
A magnificent exhibition “Thierry Mugler: Couturissime” took place at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from September 30, 2021, to April 24, 2022.
I had the pleasure of going there several times, so amazed and fascinated by his work.
Nearly 140 outfits on display, not to mention accessories, costumes, drawings, videos, photos...
Follow me into his extraordinary universe!
(and as usual, all photos are mine!)
Creations for the theatre, the Cirque du Soleil and many other shows at the end of his career, his imagination and creativity continued to reveal themselves fully. A universe he discovered as a child as a dancer – he joined the Opéra du Rhin at the age of 14 – and which gave him this passion for the stage and costumes.
No wonder then that its Haute-Couture and Ready-to-wear shows reflected this theatrical inspiration.
Extravagance, including in its Ready-to-Wear collections, no wonder why celebrities love him!
Everything inspires him, nature, legends, modernity, the future...
Extraordinary fabrics, textures, materials, crystals, horsehair, scales, nothing stops this genius with an overflowing imagination, and creations that captivate and which impossible to feel indifferent about.
In addition, attention to detail pushed to the extreme, shoes, gloves, accessories, headpieces, nothing is left to chance. Perfect harmony of the silhouette which becomes the personification of his talent.
Renowned photographers who use his creations to create art: Helmut Newton, Jean-Paul Goude, David LaChapelle, Karl Lagerfeld, Herb Ritts, Ellen von Unwerth, Guy Bourdin, Dominique Issermann…
And stars, models, who make the show!
But Thierry Mugler is also a renowned photographer, and some of his photos have become legendary.
Jerry Hall and Iman are his muses. Architecture and nature its playgrounds. His universe is fully represented.
Once again, he stretches the limits of aesthetics through amazing combinations.
Did you pay attention to Jerry Hall in the dunes with a bottle of perfume?
Thierry Mugler is an undeniable visionary, shaking up traditional codes by integrating food fragrances, he creates the first so-called "gourmand" perfume, after nearly 13 years of research to obtain what will be his signature: Angel.
Other perfumes will follow, and once again the couturier leaves nothing to chance, from the design of the bottle to the ad, including the dress and the accessories, everything is meticulously orchestrated.
And as a showman, no suprise that in 1984, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his brand, he organised a fashion show at the Zénith de Paris in front of 6,000 people!
For the finale, Pat Cleveland descends from the sky as a Madonna and pregnant.
His work & sketches are the testimony of an incredible and avant-garde artist.
A fitted waist, big shoulders, enhanced curves, he knew how to sublimate the woman like no one else, and very honestly, I would love to wear most of his creations!
But also, sexy creations because the female body is a work of art...
Thierry Mugler leaves us an incredible legacy and certainly an immense source of inspiration for generations to come...
"I'm not trendy. I'm not ‘in fashion’. I am simply a positive human being who has a positive outlook on life." Thierry Mugler
Have a fantastic week!
Love & Joy,
