Karl Lagerfeld, guest editor for Marie Claire Spain

Karl Lagerfeld has been the guest editor for this month’s issue of Marie Claire Spain, that celebrates its 25th Anniversary. Happy Birthday Marie Claire! :)

The issue is filled with lots of articles about Karl, a very interesting interview, and a great selection of his work as photographer. Diane Kruger, Claudia Schiffer, Vanessa Paradis… His usual muses. They tell the anecdote of how he began to photograph the collections and ad campaigns. Twenty years ago, he saw the photos of his collection on a magazine and he thought they were awful (he probably said it aloud), and his friend Eric Pfrunder, artistic director of Chanel, encouraged him to take the photos himself. That’s how Karl Lagerfeld began his career as photographer.

The content revolves around Gabrielle Chanel style, black and white, and Karl’s personality. Here you have some of my favourite photos from the magazine, all taken by Karl except for the editorials. The issue is already on the newsstands.

PS: The issue comes with a very nice tote bag!

Blog’s 4th Anniversary

mario testino let me in

That’s right. The blog turned four years old a couple of weeks ago. More than 1000 posts, thousands of comments, and the most important, lots of happy moments.
To all of you who read the blog everyday, to those who just found it, this post is dedicated to you (well, every post is actually dedicated to you). Thank you for visiting Miss at la Playa. I hope you keep enjoying the blog for a long time.

To celebrate the anniversary of the blog, I’m posting the images from the book of my favourite photographer, Mario Testino. He’s edited several books already, but “Let me in” is, undoubtedly, the one that best defines him. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie (with Ashton Kutcher) opened their home’s doors to Mario Testino and let him immortalize their most spontaneous and intimate moments. A real sight into fame, from the positive and artistic eye of the peruvian photographer. You can buy the book online at Amazon for $34 (used). I highly recommend it.


Así es. El blog cumplió cuatro años hace unas semanas. Más de 1000 posts, miles de comentarios, y por encima de todo, muchas alegrías.

A todos los que leéis el blog cada día, y a los que acabáis de llegar, os dedico este post (aunque en realidad, cada post que publico va dedicado a vosotros). Gracias por visitar Miss at la Playa. Espero que sigáis disfrutando del blog durante mucho tiempo más.

Con motivo del cuarto aniversario, hoy publico las imágenes del libro de mi fotógrafo favorito, Mario Testino. Ha editado varios libros con su trabajo, pero “Let me in” es sin duda el que más le define. Celebrities como Angelina Jolie o Demi Moore (con Ashton Kutcher) le abren las puertas a Mario y se dejan fotografiar en las situaciones más espontáneas e íntimas. Un vistazo muy real de la fama, desde la mirada positiva y artística que caracteriza al fotógrafo peruano. El libro se puede comprar en Amazon por $35 (seminuevo). Os lo recomiendo.

Can you see Helena Bonham-Carter at the back? I bet the curly guy with her is Tim Burton.
