Real life Cluedo with a sexy twist

Forget about stressful family gatherings and long, boring dinners; let me show you how to survive the (Christmas-) holidays in sexy style!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a typical family person. I love spending hours wrapping gifts and cooking the most elaborate meals for my loved ones. But even I sometimes need a break from all that. I just feel like shaking things up a bit! So this year, during the holiday season, I’m organizing my own Murder mystery night with a twist: real life Cluedo. It’s retro, it’s fun, and, – if you do it right – very sexy!

Cluedo is a board game, hugely popular during the seventies, where players try to figure out the three main facts of a murder: the location of the murder, the murder weapon and the murderer himself. Or herself, of course!

I’ve been planning a real life version of it, using my own house as the location, and a selection of sexy singles as the players. I’m so excited!

There are several sites where you can find the exact rules, but basically, seven adults play seven characters: Miss Scarlet, Col. Mustard, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Prof. Plum, Mrs. Whyte and Wadsworth the butler. Any extra people can be game masters, in the roles of butlers or -oh la la! – French maids.

You can invite 6 friends to play these parts, but I decided to shake things up by inviting only people – singles! – I’ve never met before in real life. For example: people I’ve had a click with on Facebook, or a friend of a friend who came highly recommended.

To make things even more exciting, I designed swanky invitations, in which I insisted everybody come dressed in a sexy stylish interpretation of their part. Now all I need to do is create lots of dark cozy corners in my house, and I’m ready for a night of ‘killer’ romance… Happy, sexy holidays!

Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”

Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”
