RFA + Saeran and V with a model MC

Zen

  • Guess who made it to the hottest celebrity couple’s list this year?
  • At first, he doesn’t really enjoy the sexy photo shoots you eventually do, but he won’t judge or get possessive.
  • Because he tries to be understanding of you career as much as you understand his.
  • Plus, he loooooves the attention you two get. He reads social media comments about how people can’t help but imagining you two fucking… which… arouses him more than he would admit to you or to himself.
  • It’s so great when you go with him to his premieres, and he’s always on the first row of your fashion shows, and there’s so much buzz all over the media because of that.
  • That photo shoot you two did together almost got banned for being too sexy, the chemistry was too obvious and everybody could tell you two definitely had sex after it was over.
  • Sometimes, the attention bother you two a little, which makes the private and reserved moments more special.
  • In moments like this, you two go to your family’s house, or just hop on his bike and leave to his secret place.
  • You two take a lot of selfies, but just the closest ones have the right to see such exclusive pictures.

Yoosung

  • Well, he did not see that coming…
  • Poor boy gets even more insecure, why would someone so talented, beautiful and relevant date him?
  • He getting all self conscious only boost your need to show your affection in public. People will know you’re taken by him, and nobody can say shit about it.
  • And most of the time, it works, he’s looking at all these guys envying him, and he won’t lie, it’s a great feeling.
  • But media can be really mean saying you’re dating a minor or weird shit like that, and there goes all the confidence you’ve been trying so hard to build up on him.
  • So you take him to your photo shoots, introduce him to everybody you work with. Designers, photographers, editors, everybody! Just to show them you’re dead serious about this relationship.
  • One day, you took him to one of your fashion shows, you even managed to make him meet you backstage.
  • All the other models l o v e him, he’s so sweet and devoted to you, and it’s cute how he is trying not to look at them so you won’t get mad.
  • They are all around him as if he is a puppy, and you keep telling them to go easy on him, are you jealous? He won’t deny he kinda likes it.
  • Next day, there is a photo of boy Yoosung being pampered by all those gorgeous models all over the news
  • No need to say it would take a lot to make his confidence go down after that.

Jaehee

  • She’s legitimately proud for all of your accomplishments.
  • Also, she loves how you don’t let fame get the best of you, you manage to keep sweet, humble and it’s nothing like a diva.
  • Of course sometimes she’s a little insecure, what someone like you could even see on a dull owner of a coffee shop?
  • But just a little affection in public and some public statements from you about her on interviews, and she forgets her insecurities.
  • She helps with everything she can, she cooks for you, trains with you (she taught you some judo stuff) and makes sure nobody bothers you when you’re resting before a major campaign or fashion show.
  • Seriously, she basically manages you better than your own manager.
  • You’re constantly bringing her along in your gigs, and she’s legitimately honored to be surrounded by so many talented and inventive people.
  • People you work with really like her because she always offer coffee to them, courtesy of her coffee shop, of course.
  • And they always manage to pay her back, giving her hair products, make-up, designer clothes, everything that fascinates her about your world.
  • She often gets shy because of all the attention she usually gets through you, and sometimes she has to excuse herself from all of this.
  • But she felt so proud when you got a GLAAD Award for being such an LGBTQ icon on the fashion industry.
  • Which you two celebrated by yourselves, on her coffee shop.

Jumin

  • The elegant stride, the perfect posture, the look in your eyes… you felt very familiar to him at first.
  • Then he remembered, you modeled for one of his company products! You did such a great job, and you were so professional and hardworking.
  • His father noticed that too and made a move on you during break, that’s why he remembers so vividly, oh god…
  • Apologizes one hundred times and makes his father apologize too, which flusters you, because you were completely fine with this before.
  • He doesn’t like seeing you just in underwear on billboards all over town, but he would hate to see you act unprofessionally and not doing a gig just because your boyfriend told you so.
  • But he will introduce you to all the most renowned photographers and designers to get you to the more high artistic fashion, think less Calvin Klein ads and more Vogue Japan editorials. (shhh, don’t tell him some of them can be really sexy too)
  • When you two get tired of the spotlight, he plans a trip to one of his private beaches (Yes, one of)
  • And will sue any magazine who gets exclusive shots of your little vacation
  • Talking about another power couple. He doesn’t really like the attention, but he can’t hold back a soft smile whenever he hears things like “just imagine their kids”, because he’s definitely imagining.

Saeyoung

  • When he hacked into your phone and saw you through the CCTV, he fell off his chair in shock
  • You’re… you’re that girl from the car show! The one who convinced him to take one of his babies
  • He wasn’t really fond of the idea of getting that particular car, but you managed to convince him with strong arguments about the car’s features and maybe with your sweet smile.
  • So yeah, he’s pretty much a fan now he knows your name and where to find your portfolio.
  • When you two get together, he doesn’t really enjoy the idea of seeing you in car shows like a product that comes along with the cars
  • So he does what he did to Zen, a Tripterbot to spam pictures of you so you can get better gigs.
  • Which slowly starts to work, as you’re getting more job offers for photo shoots and even some fashion shows.
  • Even with the whole agency thing being over, he’s still not confident to be seen in public with you
  • So he starts to wear masks and paper bags when you start getting famous, and people think your boyfriend is trying to make public statement or he’s a mysterious dj or something like this, which only helps increasing your popularity.
  • He feels like a proud mom when you get to be spokesperson for a famous car brand. You’ve come a loooong way since being an accessory at car shows.

Saeran

  • You weren’t a big deal when he led you to Rika’s apartment, so he thought you would still be suitable according to all his research
  • And let’s say he really wanted to take a pretty face to paradise when RFA would get finally destroyed…
  • But as he got to know you, he noticed you were so much more than a pretty face, you were actually a very smart lady starting a business with hair products under your name
  • When you get together, he takes as his personal mission to help you with your business and make you a big deal in this industry.
  • Congratulations! You got a boyfriend who works as your social media analyst, he knows exactly what you should post to get attention from model agencies and customers to your business.
  • He feels really weird and flustered though all the process of taking pictures of you, but deep down he loves to help you and you both know that
  • When it comes to your relationship, he’s obviously not comfortable about being seen in public, so yeah… he keeps it at a low profile
  • The media just knows you’re taken thanks to a mysterious tattoo you have on your nape, and there are all the speculations about your boyfriend being that famous singer who last music video had you as a feature, or a politician, maybe someone from the royal British family? You never confirm or deny, so the buzz keeps going and boosting likes on your Instagram.
  • Another move your social media analyst made sure to pull it off.

V

  • Match made in heaven
  • It’s just… perfect! He wants to be the photographer of every one of your photo shoots
  • And when is not possible, he makes sure to get you to work with someone he trusts that will do a good job.
  • Of course he’s very professional and won’t mind you sharing the camera lens with another model
  • It’s not because he’s your boyfriend, but he’s genuinely your favorite photographer to work with, you love how he’s able to capture so many different nuances from you, you can be sexy, you can be high-fashion or very pure and ethereal with just a few clicks from him.
  • But he’s modest and says it’s all your doing, he’s just capturing what it’s in front of his eyes.
  • He also always have the best shots of you in fashion shows, well, not only you, but of all the other models. The media, however, always points out how your pictures are obviously being taken by someone who’s in love with you.
  • Both of you think it’s cheesy, but… it is kinda true, actually.
  • Again, power couple. You’re so respected on your work fields. If separated, you two are great, together you are able to make it look it’s magic.
  • However, you’re both very discreet. But he’s planning a book of random pictures he took of you when you weren’t modeling (though it looks like you were)

jewishfitz  asked:

Fs + “Don’t worry about me.”

Hello Sarah! Thanks for your request! (…and to the others that have requested prompts – they’re not all going to be this dark. I PROMISE!) 

#31 - Don’t worry about me. (Want one? Choose from this list.

~

She nearly jumped out of her skin the first time she saw him. 

She expected nightmares, of course – of being buried alive in that mass grave once again, clawing her way to the surface and the terrifying reality she would find on the other side. But those weren’t so bad, as once she woke in a cold sweat, her body shaking and tears staining her cheeks, all she needed was to invade Fitz’s side of the bed and curl into him to know she was safe, and the Framework was long forgotten. But she didn’t expect the hallucinations.  

They didn’t appear immediately. For the first few weeks after escaping the Framework, her and Fitz’s lives were relatively normal, as they spent resting and recuperating from their lost time. Once they were cleared medically, they wasted no time brainstorming ideas for new projects, none of which involved androids or virtual realities, in pursuit of a fresh start. Eager as ever, she made it to the lab early her first day back, but the quiet lab quickly became anything but peaceful, and she soon regretted coming in alone. 

“Well, it’s about time you got back to work.” 

The sound of his cold voice behind her sent a chill up her spin, but she thought it was only in her head, so she ignored it. But then he spoke again, saying her name in such a menacing fashion as if it disgusted him to even mutter the word. Turning her head slowly, her breath hitched at the sight of him – his designer suit, his cold stare. She closed her eyes, willing him away, but when she opened them again, he was still there, leaning against the back wall, an empty abyss behind his eyes. 

She turned back to her station, not giving him the satisfaction of her eye contact. “You’re not really him, remember? You were programmed to behave that way. My Fitz remembered the real world, even if it took a while. But we left you behind.”

She didn’t hear a response; instead, she heard the sound of his expensive shoes on the hard lab floor as he approached her slowly, rattling her core. Lowering her head down, she let her hair cascade down to cover her face in an effort to shield herself from his gaze. But it didn’t stop him from hovering just inches from her, his breath hot against her ear. 

“Doesn’t mean I can’t stick around.”

When someone asked me if I would be on a film about the Trolls dolls back in 2013, I said hell no! But now, I couldn’t be more proud.

One of my goals at PDI Dreamworks was to work with Kendal Cronkhite, the shining mother goddess of production designers. She would head up this project. I was still skeptical. It would take a lot of heavy lifting. I wanted to see animation incorporate a more sophisticated aesthetic, be as modern and relevant as fashion, interior and industrial design. I shared some art inspiration with Kendal, one of which was Amelie Flechais’ comics, Sayuri’s World, an incredible fiber installation artist, and Philip Vose’s grungy indie art. I was genuinely surprised when Kendal’s response was to run with it! I was stoked enough to work on a film I believe in. But it keeps getting better! I ended up hand building stop motion scrapbook sequences that weave in and out of the film. Stop motion at Dreamworks Animation? How unreal! That led to our studio’s first ever Little Golden Book and so much more. Can’t wait to share it all. Congrats to the entire team!  

Trolls comes out in theaters today! Go check it out, I dare you not to smile.

Headcanon Time: 

We already know that Marinette loves to gush about Adrien and his extra-curriculars, and how amazing he is for being able to juggling them all. I bet some time down the line Adrien will reply back or gush to someone else (*cough* Plagg *cough*) about Mari and her accomplishments, including things that she doesn’t remember or even consider an accomplishment.

Because his extra-curriculars? He achieves that through strict scheduling and training, and majority (if not all) of those activities and photo shoots aren’t by choice, either. But being class president? Winning fashion contests? Designing album covers for world renown artists? Not backing down when under Chloe’s line of fire? Those were all her choice, and done with such passion and creativity he can’t help but be impressed and amazed. And now he can’t help but watch her occasionally at school, not approaching in fear of spooking her, but he’s content to see her smile as she works throughout her day.

And one day, when he talks to Marinette in class over a project, he feels the light blush that forms on his cheeks and his heart beat faster than normal. Something is wrong with his tongue because for some reason, he can’t stop stuttering (around Mari? since when??). When he looks into her eyes and his mind goes blank over whatever it was he wanted to say, one thought slowly takes over:

‘Shit, I think I have a crush on her.’

anonymous asked:

What about fashion designer!Annabeth and model!Percy or viceversa?

  • ooh Annabeth who sees fashion as a form of architecture
  • Percy starts modeling to help his mom out and finds he’s actually really good at it 
  • they meet when Annabeth expands into doing a men’s line and her fellow designer friend, Silena, suggests Percy as a model 
  • she finds herself staying up late at night designing things she thinks he’ll look good in (she hates herself for it and would never ever admit it out loud) 
  • he asks Annabeth if she wants him to turn down other modeling jobs, which of course not she would never interfere with his income like that, but she does get a pang of jealousy when she sees him doing shoots with women hanging all over him 
  • Annabeth is sure to book Percy for Fashion Week/the premiere of her men’s line and she obsesses over every minor detail of every single piece– he laughs as she takes his measurements for the millionth time 
  • “What are you laughing at?” 
  • “Nothing. You’re just really cute when you’re overthinking.” 
  • “Is that so?” 
  • Percy immediately begins to stammer and back-track nervously, scared he crossed a line but Annabeth stands confidently (as always, really) and places a kiss to his cheek 
  • “You’re really cute all the time” 
  • he waits until after Fashion Week to work up the nerve stammer through asking her out, and once again, Annabeth doesn’t think he could look any cuter 

queerafbucky  asked:

Have you seen Modern Family? Haley, the oldest daughter of the het marriage in the show reminds me a lot of Jackie sometimes. When she opens her mouth I can't help but think "is this Jackie Burkhart's daughter or...?", that's how I imagine their girl. She looks a little like Mila to me lol

My brother is a big fan of Modern Family and I remember a scene were Haley goes for a job interview with an ass fashion designer I think? And the guy tells her off, so she comes back all angry and Jackie-like telling him she won’t go without her interview because she is perfect for the job. Then she tells him what is wrong with the outfit of the girl working there and she gets the job, lol. So yes, I can see were are going with that. 

And you are right! The actress does looks like Mila, I mean!!!

Hyde will have two grasshoppers to take care of and that drive him crazy. Maybe the girl would be like super secure in herself in some things, I mean, look at her parents, and have insecurities of her own like what if she doesn’t get to do something great like her mom did as a host in talk shows, what if she doesn’t find a great love of her life like her parents, or what if she doesn’t met her parents expectations, while Jackie and Hyde only want her to know they love her no matter what and that they will try support her doings like their parents never did for them.

I also imagine her to be a big daddy’s girl. I can see her saying something like “daddy will know about this!” to everyone, and she can’t take any big step without telling her da, but her biggest accomplice is her mom since she doesn’t want to disappoint daddy (without knowing Hyde would probably be pretty open about whatever she wants to do, unless he thinks is not good for her, but she is a good girl in general); so Jackie always knows where she is, with who she is, and what is she supposed to be doing, she would have that relationship she always wished to have with Pam: being her mother someone she respects, but also her friend, someone she can talk to when she needs her.

Imagine Eric burning Hyde because he become that dad, the kind of dad who lets his daughter do whatever to him and kind of agrees to everything she wants, but he denies it. Jackie knows better. What if he lets her paint his nails like Red lets Laurie? lol And Jackie takes pictures of it all.

Miraculous Ladybug Drabbles: Purrfect Match

“..and that is why I will never again put my music player on shuffle when I am DJing.” the bespectacled teen explained

“That is great and all Nino, but that still doesn’t explain why you suck so badly at video games.” The blond pointed out as he trounced his friend in the racing game they had been playing for the last half hour. 

Nino put down his controller and sighed.

“Not all of us can be as perfect as you Adrien.” Nino joked as he playfully punched his friend in the arm.

“So what do you want to do now?” Adrien asked as he turned off his game station.

Adrien and Nino had been hanging out in Adrien’s room. After weeks of convincing, Adrien managed to convince his father to allow Nino to come over to hang out. The only exception is that he stays in the same room as Adrien, (he was not a fan of people running around his mansion alone.

Nino looked around the blond’s room, he couldn’t help but still be impressed by how massive the place was. It had a rock climbing wall in it for heaven’s sake. As he looked around he noticed a rather large poster of Paris lucky heroine.

“Nice Ladybug poster.” Nino comments as he points out the human sized poster of Ladybug on his wall. She was shown swinging on her yo-yo, it was a very nice poster.

“It is pretty nice.” Adrien said, unaware that he was looking at the poster with loving admiration.

“So I guess you are into spots.” Nino teased, watching his blond friend turn red with embarrassment.

“Well..I mean she is …”

“Dude its fine. I remember how you were drooling over her during that time the evil hypnotist attacked.” Nino reminded his pal as he moved up to the poster.

“I can’t help it. She is just so… amazing.” Adrien gushed, his heart beating faster as he thinks of his lady.

“Most of Paris is crushing on that girl dude, I am pretty sure Alya has a bit of a thing for her. But you do realize you do have a rather massive obstacle in winning over Ladybug.” 

Adrien felt a sudden pang in his heart, who could possibly be his rival for Ladybug’s affections.

“And who would that be?” Adrien asked, hiding his jealousy.

Nino looked at the boy with an eyebrow raised.

“Chat noir dude. You have seen how he is around ladybug. It is hard to beat a guy like that.” Nino answered

Adrien felt relief sweep over him. He couldn’t believe he was jealous of himself. But quickly realized he had to act bummed, since Nino didn’t know he was Chat noir.

“Right…” Adrien said with mock gloom, his head looking at the floor. He knew he modeled it perfectly.

Nino placed a sympathetic hand on his shoulder.

“Cheer up buddy, there are plenty of lovely ladies in paris besides Ladybug. I am sure you can find one even better for you then Ladybug.”

Adrien clearly didnt believe that statement, there was no one more perfect for him then Ladybug. But he decided to just nod.

“How about I try to set you up on a date. I already have my perfect lady, It would be great if you have yours.” Nino exclaimed. “Now tell me what you are looking for in a woman.”

Adrien sighed, he knew his friend was looking out for him. So He could play along.

“Well, She has to be passionate about what she loves. When she have a goal they won’t stop until they do it.” Adrien started. ‘like ladybug 

“Someone passionate and determined. Keep it going buddy what else?”

“She has to be clever, and creative. Also she has to be kind.” just like ladybug

“Good with kids?”

“Definitely. Also, if she can cook, that would be amazing.” Adrien went on. He could bet Ladybug could cook. Oh what he wouldn’t give to try one of her dishes.

“Well we definitely eliminated chloe.” Nino chuckled. “But enough about personality, what are you looking for in physical features?”

“Looks aren’t everything Nino.”

“Says the guy who models because of his good looks.” Nino pointed out. “I am not saying they are everything, everyone has their preferences. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and what not. And while physical looks aren’t everything, it does make falling for someone easier if you find them physically attractive.”

“Okay I see your point.” Adrien conceded.

“Do you prefer light hair or dark hair?”

“It doesn’t really matter to me. Neither does hair length. Though I do like blue eyes over every other color. And if I had to choose, darker hair is more my thing.”

“What about body type? Are you for whats in the front, or are you all about the back?” Nino asked with an eyebrow raised.

Adrien rolled his eyes at Nino’s question, why did he have to bring that up? Though if he was being honest, he has found himself looking over his partner more times then he would ever admit, and she has quite a nice backside. So he most likely was for the back.

“I would say the back. But that stays between us.” Adrien stated sternly

“No problem bro, your interest in the backside on the down low.” Nino chuckled. “Anything else?”

“Her smile. It has to feel like the sun is hitting you with a warm light.” Adrien said with a romantic sigh, thinking about Ladybug’s smile.

“Anything else buddy?”

“Well, not a requirement, but if she likes video games that would be great. Oh and she should have a good fashion sense, it would probably be the only way my father wouldn’t hate her.” Adrien added.

“Let me just get this all down.” Nino said as typed on his phone everything Adrien told him. “Okay, I got it all down.”

“So Matchmaker Nino, do you happen to know a girl that fits the description of what I told you?” Adrien questioned curiously.

Nino looked over everything Adrien had told him and felt himself stop.

“You are not going to believe it, but I think I already know a girl that fits your description, To the letter.” Nino emphasized the last three words.

“Oh really? And who would she be?”

“Marinette.”

The air got silent as Adrien heard Nino say the blunette’s name. He felt himself think about it.

Marinette was passionate about her designs, and when she says she will do something she always does it, no matter what. She made the Banner for Alix, she ran and won the class election, she even won that fashion design contest that his father judged. She was able to show her creative designs and her clever way to prevent copies of her work, showing her creativity and cleverness. Marinette was also really sweet, he remembered hearing about how she babysat that one little girl that modeled with him at the park, back when stormy weather attacked. She was definitely one of the kindest people he met.

As for looks, Adrien had to admit that Marinette was definitely pretty. Both Nathanael and even Nino at one point had a crush on her, which was understandable. And while he would never admit this, he has seen that little happy butt jiggle that Marinette does when she is happy, it is adorable. Not to mention her parents are awesome. And while he never got to try anything she made, Alya claims she is an amazing cook, and as a bonus she is amazing at video games. Marinette was literally everything he wanted in a girl.

“Nino, I think you might be right.” Adrien stated in slight surprise. He always knew Marinette was a sweet girl, but he has always been so infatuated with Ladybug, he never saw Marinette in that light. She was his first friend, aside from Nino.

“So you think your in love with Marinette?”

“I didnt say that. I am just saying that Marinette does fit the qualities that I like. I mean if we went on a date, I don’t think I would be against it. But I am not sure.” Adrien explained. “Besides, I doubt she has any interest in me like that.”

Adrien did not understand how much Nino wanted to smack him at that very moment.


Where Dorian wants to try something new.

Title: Smiles and Hair Braiding
Word Count: 1561
Pairing: Manorian 


The morning came with a wave of cold so in variance with the time of day Dorian wondered if the light streaming from the stained windows of the ramshackle inn they were staying at were product of some practicing magician’s fire. The gods knew how many were just now realizing they had magical gifts. Despite everything, the King wanted to growl in desperation as it had felt like he had gone to sleep not five minutes ago. He kept his grumbling to himself, if only to give his companion a few more minutes before the inevitable separation.

At this point in the war it was almost impossible to meet up before dinner and Dorian had to admit the only thing keeping him grounded was the white-haired witch next to him. Not even Chaol’s heavy looks of disapproval whenever he saw them together could change how the King felt and just the thought of sleeping next to Manon made him go through the day without breaking down or bursting out-as he was still trying to control his magic and, lately, even the small things got it working up.

Only pale skin that was lightly scarred, long white hair, and lips that tasted like honey and starlight kept him from losing control of his raw magic, and the only one who knew of his volatile temperament was the same one who had complete control over him.

Manon shifted against him and Dorian bit his lip as her bare thighs brushed over his. Only a few parts of her body were unmarred and though he enjoyed exploring every inch of her skin, those soft areas were a treat he never got tired of tasting. “Good morning, witchling.” He gave her head a nudge with his nose, inhaling the heavenly smell of her hair as he did so. Whether or not she realized how much influence she had over him, Dorian didn’t care. If anything, he was glad it was her and no one else.

“Hardly a good morning.”

Agreste Akumatized

Fashion shows are always a stressful time. Outfits have to be finished, shoes and accessories must be ordered, models need to get into shape. One thing going wrong can mean absolute disaster…and in Paris, disaster means someone’s going to be akumatized.

(AO3) (FF.net)


Gabriel Agreste did not think that he had ever been quite so furious in his life.

He had ordered that no food or drink be anywhere near the gowns, or in the prep area in general. Everyone, including models, had to wash their hands after eating and when they first came in for the day, just to ensure that no food crumbs or grease stains got on the clothes. Only water was allowed in the work areas, and even that sometimes got restricted when the piece was one that could only be dry-cleaned.

Unexpected surprise - part 4

I wanted to mention that I really appreciate your comments, my lovely, emotional readers. They inspire me and sometimes give me ideas to include in my fiction. This chapter wouldn’t have happened if a couple of people wouldn’t ask for Gabriel’s side of the story.
I am also aware of a theory that he is Hawkmoth. However, in this story he is not, or rather he wasn’t. I tried to explain my understanding of his story and I hope you will enjoy it!

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9  Part 10  A03

Contrary to Adrien and Emma, Marinette’s day wasn’t full of fun and enjoyment. She was franticly trying to get her project done and fix Emma-caused damage all while trying to ignore her cascading feelings. By that moment she knew she had it bad again. All those years of not seeing him and convincing herself that she didn’t love him anymore were erased in a single meeting. Her heart was up and running, loving him even more than she had ever loved anyone.

THE PROFESSIONAL: NICOLAS DEGENNES

Givenchy Le Makeup’s Artist Director discusses the brand’s 10-year anniversary and new limited-edition lipstick.

Nicolas Degennes is a beauty genius. While leading Givenchy Le Makeup for officially a decade, he’s the man behind incredible products like Rouge Interdit Magic Lipstick, Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara, and much more. And he’s still at it, bringing us a new line of whipped Le Rouge-À-Porter lipstick—plus a limited-edition version of the classic Le Rouge. The Sephora Glossy recently caught up with the living legend to discuss 10 years at Givenchy, his latest creations, and so much more. JESSICA VELEZ, REPORTING BY BECKY PEDERSON

What inspired you to launch the Givenchy Le Makeup line in 2004?

I was inspired by the very first drawings by Hubert de Givenchy and the legend of the Givenchy brand. I do a lot of research of the archives for my new creations and I always go back to the original vision of how Hubert de Givenchy [designed]. He always wanted to celebrate the many facets of femininity through his creations. You don’t have to even say the name Givenchy because when a woman sees the four Gs [she] immediately thinks of elegance, femininity, and tradition.

How does the fashion aspect of the brand affect your beauty design process?

Right now I am working on creations for 2017, and I love to harness the energy that Riccardo [Tisci] puts into his collections for how I create the makeup and work with photographers. It’s an overall beautiful, creative energy. I want to put that same energy into all my creations.

Out of all the iconic Givenchy designs, you used Riccardo Tisci’s couture floral print to celebrate the limited-edition Le Rouge lipstick. What did you like about that particular design?

When I first started to work on the Le Rouge packaging, I immediately saw the endless possibilities to customize it. This was the first time that we got to try something new with the cover. I love all of the patterns that Riccardo has created, but this one really inspired me. To me, the flower print says happiness, springtime, joy, and femininity. I love how this pattern will make a woman feel when she sees this limited-edition lipstick in her bag.

Tell us about the limited-edition shade.

It is a very beautiful [shade of] fuchsia that is universal and yet at the same time completely unique on every woman. 

What is special about your new lipstick, Le Rouge-À-Porter, and how did it become the next evolution of the Le Rouge collection?

I love it because it has a balm texture. The formula is exactly what I wanted to achieve…colors that are bright, yet sheer and comfortable. The ingredients are like skincare for the lips because we need to care for our lips more than ever. After the launch of Le Rouge, we saw a lot of matte textures on the market, which dry the lips. This is why I wanted to improve on my initial creation and focus more on lip care. The texture is so unique and comfortable that once you apply it, you want to keep using it over and over.

What’s been your most memorable moment from these last ten years?

Every single day when I’m creating…whether it’s envisioning a new texture or packaging, every day is amazing. I’m still excited and passionate about my work, research, and, most of all, the freedom I have with the Givenchy brand.

Where do you see Givenchy Le Makeup going in the next decade?

I want to introduce more and more women around the world to the Givenchy magic. We strive all the time to improve our formulas. We never settle, and we push our suppliers to go further than before. I always push for textures that are groundbreaking, innovative, and bring out the femininity in every woman.

Exo Scenario: Arranged Marriage with Sehun Pt 8 ~

Another update within the same week? Yep! Mostly because I feel bad for not updating in so long. But I hope you all like this part just as much as the others, and as always thank you so much for continuing to read! Please let me know what you think of it! (Also please excuse me, because I know almost nothing about working for a fashion magazine except for what I’ve seen in movies - specifically The Devil Wears Prada - so, please bear with me).

For those that still have not seen it, I’ll be continuing my scenario/series A Little Misunderstanding as soon as this series gets to part 10 (so only two more parts to go!). If you haven’t checked that one out yet, you can find the first part here.

You can find the other parts here: Pt 1, Pt 2, Pt 3, Pt 4, Pt 5, Pt 6, Pt 7 ~

The next few weeks progressed much the same as that day, kissing one another when you were alone and not wanting to leave the other’s side.

When things had calmed down and school had settled - there weren’t any more projects to go through, you were confident with the papers you had submitted, and you just needed to actually take your finals - Sehun asked if you wanted to join him at work, to see what it was he did for work.

Intrigued, you let him drag you along to work with him, your parents waving goodbye as you left that morning, smiling and whispering as the door closed behind you.

You knew what they were probably saying - how this was such a good idea to pair the two of you up, and how blessed they were to have such a lovely son-in-law.

When you got in the car, Sehun pulled your hand to his lips, kissing your skin lightly and making you blush. You weren’t sure you were ever really going to get used to such a sensation, never get used to him kissing you at all. Whether it was your hand, your lips, or other parts of you body. You looked away from him as he did this, but his hand just went to your chin, making you look back at him, making you look into his brown eyes.

“Ready?” he murmured, smile stretching to his beautiful eyes, lighting them up form behind. Even if he seemed emotionless at times, thoughtful even, there was always a million different emotions playing behind those eyes of his and you loved to see them illuminate before you. It was interesting to look and try to dissect each and every flicker of emotion on his face.

Nodding, he grinned before the two of you were speeding down the street…

His job was not what you had expected at first. You knew he worked for a fashion magazine, but had never guessed it was set up like this. You didn’t even really know what he did at the magazine, whether he was a designer or a receptionist. Though, the way people greeted him on the way in, you found it hard to believe he was only a receptionist.

“Oh, and who’s this?” one of his coworkers said, stopping him with a glint in her eye. She seemed friendly enough, but when Sehun looked back at you, you saw the way she looked at him, taking all of him in and biting her lip as if she liked what she saw. You wanted to say something, but kept your mouth shut. You didn’t want your first impression at his job to be telling one of his coworkers off for looking at your fiancé.

And he was your fiancé, even if you had originally objected to the idea. You had grown used to it now, being engaged to him. You were even looking forward to the wedding now. You would be marrying your best friend - your best friend that you were pretty sure you were falling in love with.

Sehun was quick to answer, though he looked back at you for half a second before he answered her question, “This is my fiancé, (Y/N). (Y/N), this is Victoria.” and he nodded between the two of you, waiting for one of you to say something. Victoria was the first to step forward, her words coming out quickly as she introduced herself and shook your hand.

“Pleased to finally meet you. I didn’t realize that Sehun was even dating someone these last few months.” she gave him a side eye and you saw him shrug, “Must not have been that important if you didn’t tell me.” and she said that as if the two of them were close, or as if they had a history together. Did they have a history together? You weren’t comfortable asking with her still standing there.

She waved a hand then, saying that she had somewhere more important to be, and then promised to stop by Sehun’s department later to see how things were going.

When she disappeared, Sehun’s arm wrapped around your waist and he started pulling your further into the building.

“What was that about?” you asked, morbidly curious as to what she had meant earlier, and why she seemed to find herself so important when it came to Sehun. You quirked an eyebrow, but both of you remained silent until the two of you passed through the glass double doors and he brought the two of you into a small off room, the walls decorated with different magazines and the rest of the surfaces stacked with the latest issue.

“Victoria likes to think of herself as more important than anyone else.” Sehun sighed, rolling his eyes for a moment, “Do you remember what I said a few months ago, about not wanting anything more than a professional relationship with the women at work?” when you nodded, he jutted his chin towards the door, “Victoria likes to think she’s the exception to that rule.”

“Oh.” you whispered, word popping out of your mouth with a sharp sound, an intake of breath. You felt yourself shaking a little, though you weren’t sure why. Was it because she was beautiful and tall? Maybe.

But before you were able to react more to his statement, he pulled you up in his arms, hands at your back, pressing you to his chest and making you look up and into his eyes once more today. It calmed you down, looking into his eyes, but it also made your heart race at the same time. You had just a second to register what he was trying to do - make you feel loved and important - before his head was bending towards yours and capturing your lips with his, not letting you speak.

You wouldn’t have though, even if you could have thought of the proper things to say in the first place.

A minute passed by with the two of you kissing like that, just standing there, until your hands spread evenly on his chest. And then they were losing themselves in the fabric, bunching it and wrinkling it between your fists as you tried to pull him closer. You laughed against his lips, smiling before he pulled an inch away and you looked down to see that you had truly wrinkled the fabric, making him look unprofessional. People would definitely know what the two of you had been doing, especially as your lipstick had stained his, making you giggle at the extra dab of pink there.

“I wrinkled your shirt.” you commented, pouting and looking at it, hands trying to smooth it down to no avail.

But Sehun just shook his head, his hands coming to either side of your face before he - very seriously - muttered, “I don’t care.” and went immediately back to kissing you, not caring if someone walked by or the kind of state he was in.

You really enjoyed kissing Sehun and never wanted to stop.

And you were definitely getting more comfortable with the idea of marrying him.

Go! - Part 2

I probably should have spent some more time editing, but I just couldn’t let you guys wait any longer.
I hope you’ll enjoy how everything will turn out. :)

Pairings: NozoEli, KotoUmi, NicoMaki (main) | RinPana, TsubaHono (minor)

words: ~4100


“You think that she’ll be okay, nya?”

“I don’t really know, to be honest.”

Hanayo and Rin were sitting on the couch their three guests had occupied previously. Now that they were gone, all that was left were their open bags and a foreboding feeling in the depths of the girl’s stomachs.

“You know what it means, nya! If they are dressing up like this… They picked their favourite suits. I’m worried about Honoka-chan, nya.” Rin hid her face behind the pot of tea she was drinking. Just remembering how terrifying Umi had looked made her shiver. Maki and Eli hadn’t been better.

“Well, Honoka-chan still has Tsubasa-chan with her. She’ll be fine.” Even though she tried to calm Rin down, Hanayo herself doubted that the former leader of Muse was going to be unscratched after the so called Soldier Trio was done with its interrogation.

| Prologue | Coffee Shop AU | Divergent AU | Arranged Marriage AU | Childhood Meeting AU | Reverse Crush AU

Summary:  Marinette and Alya meet up at the newest coffee shop for a study session… oh my gosh, that barista is hot.


Crap, crap, crap, crap, CRAP. Marinette rushed around her room, grabbing books and notes and stationary, before darting back to her backpack and stuffing everything into it. With a hasty check of her appearance in the mirror, she dashed out of her room and darted down the stairs.

“In a hurry, sweetie?” asked her mother, Sabine, a kind smile on her face. Marinette nodded hurriedly, pausing to give her mother a brief kiss on the cheek, “YesI'mlateIpromisedAlyathatIwouldstudywithherinthatcoffeeshopnearbyIgottagobyemama.” She rushed out of the house, jogging down the street and turning several corners, before she spotted the coffee shop that she and Alya had decided to meet up and study. It was rather new and apparently, Alya had made a new friend among the workers. What was his name again? Nuno? Nino? Yeah, Nino. She hid a smile as she recalled the way Alya had looked when talking about him. It was the same look she got when she talked about her blog - she got that look when she was talking about what she was interested in.

Did It Hurt

 You walked through the studio, looking at the progress of everyone’s project. “Doing god everyone,” You said just before you got to your station.

 You had been put in charge of the spring line for the upcoming fashion show and it was your first time. You were the youngest to ever be put in charge of something this big. You sighed as you continued to sketch out the center of the show. “(Y/N)!” Chase said. She run up to the table looking at you as she moved some hair out of her face. “You promised that he would go out tonight,” She said taking your sketch book.

 “I have to finish this,” You said trying to reach it.

 “By the end of next month. You can take a break for one day,” Chase said putting the book in her bag.

 “I don’t even have anything to wear,” You said looking at your wrist watch. It was almost ten at night.

 “Good thing there is a whole rack of clothes that need to be worn,” Chase said smiling. She grabbed your hand and brought you to the back where the storage room was. She started to go through the clothes, looking for the perfect dress to go get drinks in.

 “Stop it,” You said as she held up a dress to you. She sighed and continued to look on a rack. You watched her for another moment and then turned around, fully prepared to leave, but you stopped when you saw a little black dress that had a white floral pattern going up on side.

 “That’s perfect,” Chase said walking over and grabbing it off of the rack, “I’ll go get some shoes. You change into this. You sighed and walked into the changing area. As you changed Calum, Luke, Ashton, and Michael were just getting home from touring.

 “We are going out,” Calum said turning to the guys.

 “I’m pretty tired,” Luke said, “I think I’m going to go home. See my family and my girlfriend.”

  “I think I’m going to do the same,” Ashton said throwing his bag in the back.

 “I’ll go with you Cal,” Michael said smiling at him.

 “Finally. Someone knows how to have fun,” Calum said grabbing Michael’s shoulder, thrilled that he was going to be going out with Michael. “We’ll just have to freshen up,” Calum said looking down at his traveling clothes.

 They drove there separate ways to change. You and Chase were walking into a small club that was particularly busy on a Friday night.

“This is awesome!” Chase yelled over the music.

 “I guess,” You said looking around. Chase just rolled her eyes and pulled you down into the crowd of people. You pushed your way through, trying not to hit any of the people that were dancing. Since you work a lot you never had time to go out to pubs and clubs. You never liked them much. Too many people and the music would get to your head.

 “Come on (Y/N), lighten up a bit,” Chase said flagging down the bar tender. Just as you were about to grab your beer there was a commotion at the door. Calum and Michael had just walked in and down the steps into the crowd. Someone had already stepped in there way in the first couple seconds they were there. Michael pushed his way through the crowd and to the bar, Calum following at a much slower pace, since he would stop to talk to the girls.

 “Calum!” Michael yelled flagging him down. Calum hurried up and met Michael at the bar ordering  beers for the both of them. “I’m not drinking much,” Michael said when the beer was put in front of him.

 “You’re funny,” Calum said grabbing Michael’s shoulder. Michael smiled and took a sip of beer, looking across the way. Michael hit Calum’s chest, hard, getting his attention. “What the fuck?” Calum asked turning to him.

“Isn’t that (Y/N)?” Michael asked pointing at you from across the bar. Calum turned to the direction that he was pointing. When he spotted you from across the way he froze. He had gone to school with you and Chase and he had always sort of like you, but you were too busy with school work to even notice. “Isn’t she some big time fashion designer now?” Michael asked before taking another sip.

 “Yeah,” Calum said without hesitation.

 “Do you still have a thing for her?” Michael asked smiling at Calum.

 “NO,” Calums said a bit loud. Michael looked at Calum, not believing him, and then back at Chase and you.

 “What the hell is wrong with you?” Chase asked as you declined another drink from a guy.

 “I don’t want the drink,” You said as Chase took it. She apologetically smiled to the guy that from across the way and then took a sip.

 “There’s Michael and Calum,” Chase said making you freeze. She smiled across the way and you guessed one of them smiled back and waved because Chase waved.

 “I never understood why you never took an interest in Calum. He was so sweet to you,” Chase said shaking her head. You rolled your eyes and leaned against the bar.

 “Hi there,” Michael said smiling at Chase as they walked up.

 “Hi!” Chase said smiling. “Long time no see. What’s it been? Like three, four years?” Chase asked pushing her drink that was sent over to you from a stranger.

 “It’s been a while,” Michael said smiling. You looked at Michael and then quickly at Calum, seeing him looking over at some other people.

 “Let Calum by you guys a drink,” Michael said grabbing his attention. Calum turned around and looked at you, pausing, and then looking at Chase.

 “Of course,” He said when Michael elbowed him in the side. You received another beer and then brought to a table where the four of you could did.

 “Hi (Y/N),” Calum said smiling. You smiled and said hello, striking up a conversation.

 “Big time fashion designer. I’m glad you got where you wanted,” Calum said smiling at you.

 “Thank you. It suites me and my working needs, but you and the other boys. Big time band,” You said smiling. “That’s impressive.”

 “It’s alright. We just had a hell of a year,” Calum said smiling.

 “You know, we are going out for a show soon. You two should come,” Michael said smiling at you and Chase. Calum shot Micheal a look, but Michael just smiled back at him. 

  “We would love to,” Chase said smiling. You shot her a look, but she just did the same thing as Michael. 

  “Then it’s a plan,” Michael said smiling. You looked at Michael and then Calum, nervously smiling.

Rihanna Named Contributing Creative Director At Stance

Rihanna is stepping into the socks business with Stance. Named contributing creative director as part of a three-year deal, the pop singer is designing socks and leading campaigns for the San Clemente, Calif.-based company. She’s also becoming one of Stance’s brand ambassadors, joining celebrities like artist Langley Fox Hemingway and former NBA All-Star Allen Iverson as the so-called “Punks and Poets.” While her first full collection for Stance won’t hit stores until fall, Rihanna is releasing two styles that she designed on the company’s Web site today. Numbered like a limited edition from one to 1,500, the crew socks come in men’s and women’s sizing at a retail price of $30. There are 1,000 of the over-the-knee style, which sells for $26. Both made of combed cotton, the designs feature sublimated prints in red, white and black of newsprint typography and vintage movie art. 

Rihanna put a personal stamp on the product by emblazoning the phrase “Bad Gal” all over the designs, which hints to her Instagram account with 22.5 million followers. She also printed her surname Fenty in a Gothic typeface on the back of the crew socks. The singer snapped up the first in the series of crew socks.

“I’ve had a great relationship with Stance for a long time and I am happy to be working with them on such a fun and creative project,” said Rihanna, whose relationship with the brand dates back to 2012, when the company custom-made socks for her cover photo shoot with Complex magazine.

The fashion gig is the latest endeavor piled onto the packed resume of the multitasking media maven, who already holds the lofty titles of global brand ambassador and women’s creative director at Puma. When not topping the music charts with tunes such as “Umbrella,” “SOS” and “B—h Better Have My Money,” the Barbados-born singer has designed for fast-fashion retailer River Island and modeled for fashion and beauty labels including MAC, Balmain and, lately, Dior. She also catapulted Guo Pei into the global spotlight after donning the Chinese designer’s golden gown with a dramatic fur-trimmed cape at this year’s Met Gala. Stance doesn’t worry about getting lost in the mix, though instead, it aims to ride the momentum to the next level. Introduced in 2012, two years after the men’s business, its women’s division makes up between 20 and 25 percent of total sales. It’s the fastest-growing group at the company, which also makes kids’ socks and plans to expand into men’s underwear this fall. For instance, Rihanna’s fall collection slated to arrive in stores in September includes a thigh-high style, a first for Stance.

“She creatively pushes the boundaries in everything she does,” said Candy Harris, senior vice president of Stance’s women’s division. “It’s nice to work with out-of-the box ideas for our brand.” Stance plans to make a strong digital ad play for Rihanna’s fall collection, which will retail from $18 to $28. Rihanna served as creative director of the fall campaign. The company usually sells its wares at retailers such as Colette, American Rag Cie, Nordstrom and Shopbop.com, but it has yet to finalize the list of retailers that will carry Rihanna’s 18 styles for fall. Her holiday collection is due in November. There are very few women in fashion whose personal style can go from street to couture in a blink,” Harris said. “She does it with such credibility and authenticity. It makes her an original.” “This is a seminal moment for the sock category,” says Harris. “[Rihanna] is a fashion pioneer and we are excited that she has made Stance her next canvas … Together, Rihanna and Stance have the ability to take an accessory you’ve never thought about and transform it into one you can’t live without.” The print uses a Galliano-inspired newsprint paired with a Barbara Kruger-inspired red-box typography, with a name that’s a rough play on words of the Ann Lansbury classic TV series. Named “Murder Rih Wrote,” the print comes in an over-the-knee style sock and a crew-style for both men and women. We had no idea that Rihanna connected so much with Jessica Fletcher, but we’re harboring some warm-fuzzy fantasies of a five-year-old Rihanna getting cozy on the couch on a Sunday evening and flipping on CBS to this theme song. Harris said to us that Rihanna was super-involved in the process from beginning to end: “She was incredibly hands-on from the initial mood boards and inception of the collection to the design process and ultimate the final campaign shoot.” You’ll also be able to prove that you’re a bigger fan than your fellow Navys; the limited-edition socks come numbered from 1 to 1,500. We’re here to give out a “like” for whoever gets the equivalent of “first”.

Peggy Angus “A tile mural for Brussels World Fair seen in situ, 1958″

“So why is it that so few people know about her? “Like Ravilious, she is part of a generation that was overlooked from the 60s on, when tastes changed. They’re only now coming back into fashion. A lot of her work was done for private clients, which kept it out of sight. But like lots of women, she has also been written out of history – literally. Her husband [the architecture writer JM Richards] doesn’t even mention her in his memoir.” As Russell notes in his book, male architects were content to use women artists to decorate their buildings, but this didn’t mean they were going to share the credit for a design’s success. In 1958, Angus designed a 50ft-long futuristic tile mural for the British section of the Brussels World Fair. Yet she was not invited to the opening ceremony and had to travel to Belgium to see it in situ at her own cost.”

This quote is from a great article on the Guardian website today written by Rachel Cooke about little known British designer and artist Peggy Angus. It is always good to find out more about the female designers from design history past, especially ones who have come close to being forgotten. It is something I have found very common while researching Mid-Century Modern, information is often sparse and their work can be much harder to track down. Which is a real shame. The mural pictured above is really quite something, I wish there were more photos, as it feels a pity to only see it in black and white the from one angle. It reminds me a bit of the colourful and abstract work that Eduardo Paolozzi (who I’m a big fan of at the moment) would do in the 1960s and beyond.
