One of the joys of my career is I never know what I will find around the next corner of the street or bend in the road.
On my second day in Peru, staying in the village of Urubamba, we took a road that snaked through the hills just outside town.
Farms, terraced hills, random livestock, the hills are full of a life not much different than it would have been one hundred years ago or more.
You can imagine how my jaw dropped when I saw this young girl, with her halo of flowers.
More than from a different place, she (and her little brother) were from a different place and time. Â At that age I barely let my little girls handle the TV remote control, Â let alone go off on a journey down a winding hillside road loaded down with a large clay pot on their back.
Everyday I’m so thankful that I get to discover the world in all its endless and fascinating diversities and similarities.

Emerald Green, royal purple, deep burgundy and navy! Â What a beautifully sophisticated color combination.
This woman was selling home-made beer to the very local community in the very local town square, Â no big deal and yet such honest, simple beauty of everyday life there.

After spending about eight days in Peru last week, I was pleasantly surprised by how unique the dress style was by region and , sometimes, by village.
In this small village, on the road from Urubamba to Cusco, Â each lady dressed in wonderfully dramatic color combinations. Â This woman’s neon orange sweater Â and leaf green cardigan under another fuzzy yellow outer-cardigan, all worn over a soberÂ slate blue pleated skirt was just one of the delights of a lunch time stopover. Â Notice the equally wonderful hot pink, red and black combination on the woman in the background.
The woman I will post at 4 pm offers another wonderfully exciting palette of colors!

the best smile in the fashion industry.

I don’t remember what I was shooting but I love how my assistant Camilla caught the line of my skinny Gap jeans and slim Aspesi coat, Â and sleek New Balance sneaks (all Navy color(?)).
I do remember it was early Sunday morning in Paris and this felt the perfect thing to wear.
