20s muse: an exercise in reenactment

I am happy to present a collaboration with two talented Romanian women: make-up artist Malvina Ișvan and hair stylist Andreea Constantin. It is true that I have been considered for quite some time a muse from the past or an anachronic figure both due to my passion for vintage clothing and my keen attraction for drama and…

This is NOT a BEAUTY post|ART on #dailytutliputli with Irina Gache & Raluca Roşu

The current project hosted on dailytutliputli.com is actually a BIG SELF-PORTRAIT of Raluca Roşu, at first not even intentional and/or conscious and now fully conscious and especially intentional (!).

This Fall on Instagram (2016)

Last week I wore my new fake fur coat and hat. Monday felt like September, but we’re not here to talk weather. Or are we? Surely, the 4 seasons and Bucharest have not met in a while. I am not used to it and all I can wish for is a walk-in closet with garments…

Introducing ”this week on Instagram”

  Working from 9 to 6 makes it more difficult to stage photo shoots. On Saturday and Sunday I seem to be resting in bed so far. I am very careful about what I’m wearing to work though or if I go out with friends on a regular night or for a special event. Being always…
