Yup, 27 is just a number and I'm still 20 at heart you know that hahahaha. Anyway, I would like to thank you to all of you for the warm wishes and the crazy amount of gifts and cakes I received on my Birthday this year. Also thank you for always supporting from year to year, it really means a lot to us and we really appreciate it.
I am thankful for the life I'm living, the job I passionate about, a husband & friends who are caring and always have my back. I am also forever thankful to be given the chance to learn again, to give back and to host a meaningful giveaway this year; it's nothing much and not luxurious but very special to me. Scroll down to find out why, hmmm.
However, before that, I want to share the results of #anazroadto27 Birthday session with Moreno Photography that we did last week *yeayyyy. It is actually our third year of collaborating together and I am still can't get enough of them. They seem to always have creative & fresh ideas and they are always so friendly beyond words! Even though we finished shooting at midnight, they were still cool about it! Thank you for being awesome!
This year we decided to do 4 different concepts with 4 different stylists, one assistant, one photographer, one make up artist, one hair stylist and two setting gurus who are awesome and very dear to me. You ready? ;)
Photographer: Calvin Jonathan
Make Up Artist: Jessica Tan
Hair Stylist: Jeffry Welly
Assistant: Johanna Nathania
"A tribute to the chicness of the ladies during the Dutch Colonialization meets Japanese occupation of our country"
The first two looks were styled, directed and concepted by Moreno's very own stylist, everybody's favorite, the big mama, Mrs Josephine Widira.
Wardrobe (both dresses) by Didi Budiardjo
"A modern take on the 1960s lady, the heavy winged eyeliner look and signature 'beehive' buns"
The second concept was styled by my favorite hot young momma, the owner of Loft 20, Michelle Koesnadi with the help of Ms. Johanna who directed and concepted the look.
Fur by Loft 20
Coat by Jii Gloria
"In a world where everyone is overexposed, there is always a little mystery in her every moves. You could see what she allows you to but her dreams are her own. She creates wonders and wonders create desires...."
"Anaz should look different." A sexy and elegant look concepted, styled and directed by my fashion darling, the creative Cindy Karmoko.
Accessories by Secret BlackBox
"A tale of an Asian woman living in the tough world. She's bold, independent, and stolid. With her alluring charm, she can conquer all.... And one can never mess with her"
Last but not least, one strong look by my rempong brother, the young and talented, Stefandy Yanata. "No, Anaz can't pose beautifully this time, no winged liner and don't make her look pretty, please."
So, which one is your favorite? I can't personally pick mine because each and every one of them is different and I've got to LOVE them all!!
BIG THANK YOU to you guys who takes part in #anazroadto27 whose names were mentioned above. Thank you for your time, effort and willingness to help until the end of the session, esp to the big brain behind all of this, Mrs Josephine Widira. I LOVE YOU ALL!!
