La Vie En Rose: The Heist - Behind The Scene

On the 15th of June, I was given a new life.

Ma Cherie Johor Bloggers made their debut recently and everyone was curious - who are they? What are they going to do next? If you read the beautiful story of Ma Cherie in my previous post, you will know that Ma Cherie is a group of eleven ladies with big dreams brought together by fate, and decided to pursue their dreams together. And now, we proudly present to you our debut project - La Vie En Rose: The Heist, which is our first fashion editorial project.

The mastermind behind this project, who is also our script writer for the story, Eryn, got her inspiration when a song came across her mind - ''La Vie en Rose'' sung by French singer Édith Piaf. It means "Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses" in French. What it tries to portrait is that when we view the world through rose-colored glasses, things seem to be better than they really are. With that cheerful and optimistic perception of things, Ma Cherie girls found the courage to dream even bigger. Eryn couldn't help but being captivated by the beautiful melody of the song. 

Looking at the world through rose colored glasses,
Everything is rosy now.
Looking at the world and everything that passes,
Seems of rosy hue somehow.

Man, money and power. Eryn decided that the story will revolve around these three things, which women believe they could use these to control their destiny. Hence lead to the never ending chase. Friedrich Nietzsche once said that, “In revenge and in love woman is more barbaric than man is”. They are willing to do anything to fulfill their desires. Betrayals, dirty tricks, exploitation.

Mind you, we are talking about beautiful woman with both brain and beauty.

The project aims for us to step out of our comfort zone to challenge a new look or style that we have never tried before. And I was given this role - Agent Lola, a young lady who smiles like an angel to cover up the fact that she is working for an underground association. This is the first time I am participating in a photo shoot project like this, so I get really nervous and uneasy that I have to pose in front of the camera. And if you knew me you would know that I seldom dress in this way or put on such heavy make up. (I hope I look okay?) So I see this project as a major break through to me!

The photo shoot turned out to be a huge success because I have the most professional team to back me up. I have Eryn, who put in so much effort, from preparing the script, styling my look to guiding me throughout the photo shooting. I have Kelvin, our photographer who spent hours to try shooting from different angles so that we all look good in the photos. I have Jennifer, who put on the best make up for me so that I look flawless in front of the camera. Not forgetting the other Ma Cherie girls who are ever supportive and encouraging. This is something we have been working on for months, it is our labour of love. I am blessed to have all of you with me in this memorable event of my life. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

What do you think of my look? Do you love the story? How about we do it more often? ;)
