My New Favorite Things


My last week started from Paris to London and ended in Los Angeles. While working on the set in London with Elle Uk, I discovered what’s to be my new favorite London florist Scarlet&Violet. Keira Knightley got to take this gorgeous bouquet home from our shoot. I just love how the arrangement looks handpicked.

On arriving in Los Angeles for a month long shoot with Heidi Klum, I received a welcome gift from Harry Josh. His pro tools are excellent from the blow-dryer that’s light and super efficient with an ion button to stop static in the hair to his section clips with a super strong grip. Nothing is more frustrating than a section clips that slides ! The brushes are also de haut de gamme.

For fine dinning I savored this plate of Yellow Tail with Jalapeño at NOBU in the company of photographer Jan Welters, actress Julianne Nicholson and Instyle USA team. Other plates devoured that I highly recommend were Fresh Fluke Sashimi with Dried Miso, Tuna Mini Tacos, Shaved Artichoke Salad with White Truffle and Parmesan, just to name a few. The food just kept coming and we just kept eating. We got spoiled by Instyle USA, thank you.

When in Los Angeles I always try and stay at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood. The location is central, it’s relatively small and intimate, the staff are kind and always remember your name. There is a “no party policy” after 10.30pm in the evenings which assures me quiet corridors for sleeping which is priority as my work days start usually at dawn.

Hope you get to enjoy some of these addresses, links and meals if ever in London or LA.
