Bella Petite magazine’s cover girl, Lauren Carter, was thrilled when she received the opportunity to work with international celebrity, fashion and event photographer John Glantz, director of Glantz Media Productions, located near Maastricht, The Netherlands.
Lauren was able to obtain this contact through the vast network of photographers, open only to Bella Petite registered models. Although, Lauren is a Hollywood actor, model, and singer and published internationally, this was the first time she had visited The Netherlands.
After greeting John at the airport, she traveled with him to his studio where he and his team would start the first part of her 1940’s Hollywood glamour and high fashion photo shoot, which was a very exciting experience for her.
John recreated the style and atmosphere of a time long gone by, while being assisted by makeup artist Marjo Schipper and makeup & hairstylist Esther De Graaff. Together, they transported Lauren back to the 1940’s, a time when Hollywood was glamorous.
During Lauren’s visit, John also chauffeured her to Almelo, The Netherlands for the high fashion part of the photo shoot. This would be an on location shoot with the help of the husband and wife team Anton and Silva Dono.
Anton Dono, owner of Beauty touch by Anton, is a true hairstyle artist. He specializes in coiffure for weddings and other special occasions. His creations are like jewels that complement a woman’s beauty. When Anton conceives a hairstyle, he brings out a radiance that gives a woman confidence in herself and her own beauty. Sometimes, Anton uses hair extensions of the finest quality and hair accessories with Swarovski crystals to accent his conceptions.
Silva completes the look by applying professional makeup that will look beautiful throughout the evening, transforming the woman into a vision of beauty. Several international celebrities have requested Anton’s services and he has created styles for professional model portfolios as well as catwalk runs in many cities around the world.
Glamour Garden by Silva, a unique and exquisite boutique with exceptional gowns and high-fashion clothing, was born out of the collaboration between Anton and Silva Dono. Silva has several years of experience in the fashion industry. In addition, she designed and marketed her own creations. Silva, a lovely woman, is able to see right away, which creations will bring out a woman’s best feminine features. Her gowns are handmade and meticulously chosen from designers around the world, among which are several designers from Lebanon. The elegant setting, the welcoming atmosphere and Silva’s excellent service, personal care and attention will make you feel like royalty. Silva feels that every woman is unique and has her own look that needs accentuation by elegant clothing. The gowns in Silva’s boutique are true works of art, sought out by many celebrities in The Netherlands and throughout Europe.
For the location shoot, at a country estate in Almelo, Anton worked his magic with Lauren’s hair fashioning it into a stunning ensemble. Later, Silva dressed Lauren Carter in a gorgeous black gown and brought out her ravishing features using only the finest makeup products. Thanks to the wonderful teamwork of Silva and Anton, John was able to capture Lauren at her best and present to you the striking beauty that exists in all Bella Petite Cover Models!
