How to pose with ease on the red carpet…

It’s fashion week time all over the world these coming weeks, which involves a lot of posing for all fashionistas. Now – no one wants to look wooden and uncomfortable in front of all those flashing cameras, so how to relax and be comfortable on the red carpet if it’s your first time? Well – learn from the highly experienced Fashion Bandit! 😀 Only… if you want the 100% blasé look of the fashion world, I’m afraid you’ll have to sort that one out yourself – or even better: consult the Fashion Police! 😀 😀

The Fashion Bandits ride again

Let this much be clear – there is no stopping a determined Bandit – be that a Fashion Bandit or an Arctic Bandit, on a tricycle or a racing bike. Bandits are mighty. It’s all in the mind, you know… 😉

And did you think this photo was shot in winter? Oooooh nooooo, my friend…The Fashion Bandit left sunny Oslo and 28 degrees and blazing sun, went up to visit The Arctic Division, consisting of Arctic (Cycling) Bandit Sindre Solvin and Arctic Photo Bandit Kjetil Janson – and these were the conditions that met her. This is end of May in Narvik, Norway, in mighty 3 degrees and not a green bud in sight…that’s life above the Arctic Circle for ya! 😉 .

Glam meets traditional

Ok so we’ve moved into this lovely old and traditional Norwegian neighbourhood (see the post “Modern meets old” to get the full story). Better study the local clothing traditions. Like knitting. Perhaps we’ll even manage to blend in..?

 

Look, darling! I’m sure I could wear that one! I mean – you’ve managed to go eeeh…somewhat…traditional…?

Noooo! I’ve changed my mind! No way I’m blending into the background! I want my disco!

The Fashion Bandits. We tend not to feel like blending in.

Modern meets old

The Bandits are on the move. Changing habitat, as it were. Will they cope? Will they survive..?

 

Oh dear…oh no…are we really doing the right thing leaving..?
