Private space

Is her house as fashionable as her lingerie…? Well, let me take you on a tour through my (lingerie) closet.

Recently journalists from lifestyle magazine VROUW wanted to come over, to give their readers a peak in my metropolitan palace. At the day of the visit, my house was everything but picture perfect, so I needed some last minute assistance to make it was in its best shape ever

I showed the journalists around and told them about the use of colors, furniture and art which I surround myself with. I did lots of the interior design myself; designing the wallpaper patterns, the fabric of the couches, the rooftop garden and my eye-catching dining table and chairs. Take a look at the backstage pictures and decide for yourself if I am as fashionable as my lingerie…

Between king and QUEEN

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.”
