Ne me quitte pas, mon cher ( Episode 1 )

pe bloc (18)

But if you’re a friend of any sort, then play along and catch a cold.

This will be a story about clean wide smiles, colorfoul fabrics never to be stained by teary mascara.
This will be a story about the beginning of so many beautiful friendships.
This will be  a story about Audrey meets Audrey.
We think of Audrey. Gabriela always puts some Audrey on :  a clean smile, a feline gaze, 50s cuts, dots, she sometimes even starts to sing “Moon river”. I think of Audrey Hepburn- how she would have laughed – how she would have smiled seeing us girls, make-up on and high heels, smiles and shivers – sharing the world, the city, taking it all in. Sometimes you start living when you stop making excuses, when you dip your feet without knowing how deep the water may be.

This is a prologue to a story I will never get tired of telling.
Years from now I will still go : Remember that time when we went on that roof? The wind was coldly blowing, the sun was nowhere to be seen. We put on the highest heels you brought – they calmly helped us move around the rooftop, they took hundreds of photographs and made us feel like the Audrey we know we can be.

Audrey is power and grace, thunder and spring rain, pure winter and bright red lips, laughter and frowns.
Audrey is when you throw your arms around the world and embrace it like the missed lover you haven’t seen in ages.
Audrey is when you jump in a fast car with that lover and you are too happy to look back.
Audrey is when you gently light a cigarette and patiently wait for your next rencontre.
Audrey is when you sigh and take your shoes out of the refrigerator. Or the oven…

Audrey is New York and Paris and all the space in between.

Gabriela has been trying to show us that Audrey can be Bucharest as well.

See the magic she has created here

Stay tuned for a crazy mix of Gabriela Atanasov‘s pieces in the next posts.
