Cosmo-Girl by Cynthia Baremans

Hi everyone, 

Another week passed by in Cape Town, time to enjoy the weekend now!

My week started great with my shooting for Cosmopolitan magazine! Although I was a little nervous, because the shoot was for colored contact lenses. During the casting they asked me if I have a problem wearing contacts, of course I said confidently “no problem!” To be honest I never tried! So on Sunday I asked one of my housemates who actually wears contacts, to show me how it works. It looked so easy.. Until I tried!! First I couldn’t get the contact in, once I got it in my eye.. I lost it! Eventually I got it out.. But I was a bit worried for the next day! 

Monday morning I woke up early and arrived at the studio at 8:15 am. The photographer and the make-up artist arrived at the same time. There was one other woman who works for Cosmopolitan and one girl from New York who did the styling. We started immediately with make-up and hair while the photographer was preparing the lights in the studio, and the stylist was hanging up her clothes. The make-up and hair was really nice, just natural. The first shot was without contacts, so later you can see all the different looks in the magazine. It were all head shots, from the side and straight into the camera. Then we continued with the colored contacts, I had to wear 5 different colors. I don’t know how I managed it, but I got them in and out myself within a few seconds! Like I already do it for years!

It was really nice to see all the different colors. The make-up artist changed the make-up a few times, so I had a few different looks. The people were really nice and happy with the result! I’m excited to see all the pictures together in the magazine. It will be in the new April issue, which comes out in March.

Life in Capetown – By Cynthia

Hello again! 

Last Friday we had such a fun night out in Cape Town, although I did need to recover for two days… And then it was Monday again! My Monday morning started dancing around in bikini during a commercial casting, just an ordinary day! Normally all the castings are in studios, inside, with a lot of people and I wait for a long time.. But on Tuesday I had a casting close to my house at a beautiful location: Clarendon guesthouse. Very comforting to wait around with a beautiful view.

Romana

The beautiful face of Romana Meijer (15) might be familiar to you all. We have seen her in the CosmoGIRL! model contest and after starting at Fresh Model Management, Romana is now an Elite model. With her dark look and curly hair you would not imagine she has the bluest eyes you have ever seen. And if that ain’t enough to became a Victoria Secret model, her long legs will get her there anyway!

model

De Boekers – where the hot boys are! After a few days full of publications about the girls, it was about time to open our Spotted Style dossier and add one more gentleman to the list of the spotted models! We already knew where to find him, so it didn’t take long! Looking for the star of our spotlight lead us to Dennis van Ooyen! Mission accomplished and there we go! Luckily, we had the chance to interview him yesterday! Let us introduce to you Dennis van Ooyen! Why Dennis? The list is long, but we will try to sum up the things that impressed us most and leave the other part for you! We took a look at Dennis’ portfolio and power, strength and charm come out of his photos, which made us curious what is he like! Take a look at some of his photos, because they are the only proof you need!

Dennis is 23 years old and currently living in Amsterdam. Actually, he moved here a few weeks ago and enjoys the city. Same as him, we are always in for a party and we would describe him as open minded, friendly, fun and always ready to help! And Spotted Style had kind of funny and extreme situation last weekend and Dennis was one of the first people ready to help us, so if you need a Superman, you just found him! Dennis is modelling for De Boekers, Base models Cape Town and Major Models Milan! He is on the male modelling scene from three years and is doing more than great! By being a model he got the chance to travel a lot and work with many people from different countries and explore new cultures. From our own experience, life is meant for a good adventure and adventure awaits to get lost in the right direction! As we already mentioned, if we start with our list called ‘’why Dennis’’, it will probably take longer than a post, so we will continue with his interview! Enjoy reading and getting into his zone and keep on following Dennis on Spotted Style, because there is more to come!
