Hi, my name is S a v a n n a h V i n s o n . I’m a model, actress, dancer, casting director, and influencer based in New York City. I moved to the Big Apple 2 years ago from Cincinnati, Ohio. I graduated high school a year early to pursue my career. Throughout my journey, I have modeled for Marc Jacob’s fragrance Daisy, Macy’s, Sephora, Spray Ground, Black Pyramid, Tommy Hilfiger, featured in Vogue magazine, and I’ve had my own billboard in Times Square with Spotify. I have been able to grow my social media to 21.800 followers and my tik tok to 54.300. I have partnered with so many amazing brands from food, home decor, self-care, travel companies, etc. Some of my favorite brands are Curls, Spa Science, Power Up Trail Mix, Cook Unity & so many other fantastic brands. I wanted to help other aspiring models make their dreams come true throughout my journey, so I started my own casting agency “Queen Castings.” We now represent talent in New York, LA, and Miami. All ages from 7-75 years old! Models, Actors, Dancers, MUA, Photographer’s, and Influencers from 1000-2 million followers. I have been able to provide 100s of talent modeling and acting opportunity.

Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Gabrielle Eden. I am a teenage actress, singer, and writer (both story writing and songwriter). I love performing on stage and working on movies in Syracuse, New York. I sing Broadway show tunes for concerts and at Nursing Homes in my local area (Obviously before the quarantine), and I was writing poems for my school newspaper before the schools were shut down. I also write for the Central NY Women's Online magazine for "Teen Talk." I know many ask me, "What do you want to do in your life?". I want to star on Broadway as "Christen Daáe" from "The Phantom of The Opera.“ Today, I am here to talk about a day on the set, and the script reads like a teenage actor. First and foremost, when you land a job, you have to do a script read with the cast. I really enjoy doing a script read with the cast. I get to imagine what happens in the story in my head and what I am doing, feeling, etc. Not only that, I get to meet new people and some old friends I have worked with before. We would sit at a table and get to know each other. When the script read starts, that is when the magic starts! When you are in a script read, you never know what is being changed or what remains. As an actor, you have to be flexible with the script. You can't get too comfortable with what it is once you get your first copy. I know I have had parts changed, and they can be pretty cool too. Once you meet everyone and do the script read, you go home to know that you made some new friends and know how to practice a little better before filming starts. Then the big day (or days) is here: filming day! That is when the real magic begins. Once you arrive on the set, you can't help but realize how lucky you are to be alive. You meet more of the crew as they set up, and you have to wait in a small room until everything is ready. At that time, you have to change into your costume and have your make up done. I'm telling you, you'll be amazed how much different you look on camera than in real life. But as a teen actor or younger, there are state requirements that the crew has to follow. So, unfortunately, I had to sit around a lot. I did a short film last year, and I sat around for at least five

to six hours. I became a little restless. But it was part of the job. When you're a child or teen actor, you have to bring stuff to do. I normally bring something to draw or write with. I am not big on using my phone unless I really need to. Bring the script too, you may want to practice lines and actions with your fellow actors or anyone who is willing to help you out. Now the moment you've been waiting for: the actual filming! When you film, you have to have a clear throat and mouth. Otherwise, no one can hear you. You have to feel the character, too, make a few notes to yourself or make a backstory for your character if he or she doesn't have one. Once you step onto the set and the camera is pointing at you, there is this rush of excitement and a tad nervousness that I know I feel. But just take a breath or two, and everything will be fine. Before you film, they will do a rehearsal take, and they will give you pointers on how they want you to do the scene. Mind you that you have to do the scene over and over again until the director is satisfied. But depending on who or what it is, filming times can be different. I recently did some filming, but because I knew what I was doing, I did my filming in under an hour for my day. They make you do the scene over and over again until you are sick of it, but you have to keep that character in mind too. But once the filming is done for the day, you will have a wonderful feeling that you expressed yourself in a way no one else could. After many days of filming, the director will say, "That's a wrap"! Once the filming for the movie is done, I know I feel excitement and sadness. I feel sad because I know this is something I can't do every day, so I try to make the most out of it. Mind you, editing takes a while, and once you see the film for the first time, you can't help but say: "Hey, I'm in a movie! I can't wait to tell this to my grandchildren!" And that is a day and the life of a teenage actress on set.

Cheryle Dias

© RED The Luxury Life Feb 2021


Biography – Cheryle Dias Life was easy; my father took care of all my needs. He is in advertising, and my mother is a housewife. We are 4 siblings. He taught us how to carry our dreams. I grew up in a very open-minded family where we had full freedom. We always sat together for drinks, movies, play, and talks. My parents gave us the best of everything—a way of life on how to respect and respect. Be honest in your dealings and never ever compromise in your dignity, and don't have shame to kneel down in front of God to praise him. Have a fear of God. It matters a lot the best teachings from the parents. My father is an advertiser, and I received many years of experience in my surroundings like fashion, models, shoots, dresses. From early childhood, I was interested in drawing and created wonderful ideas. My father knew I had something special in me. He encouraged me to develop my skills further and admitted me to art college. I remember one incident I had selected science subjects in 10th grade, but it was absolutely not my cup of tea. I would draw in my biology books! Even though I was a brilliant student, I remembered teachers talking about me that I could be a position holder if I studied regularly. Finally, I selected fine arts and carried forward my dreams…again, my mom used to be called by teachers for not attending other classes … since I was always were found in fine arts class. I don't know how I passed in other subjects. I completed my graduation in fine arts and won many competitions. When I started my MA, I did majors in textile and designing.

There my journey began. I also completed my MBA in marketing and bachelor's in computer sciences. And lots of management training courses. I moved to Dubai in the year 2002, since then, I have worked on my label. Then I got married in 2003 and got busy in married life and kids, but still working to fulfill our day to day needs. My husband Daryl was a big support when I shared my idea for leaving my job and gave full time to my designing talent. I did so and reactivated my label, starting with bridal collections. At the same time, I thought of providing the platform for designers and vendors and launched our event company. Opulence, and within a few years, Opulence became a brand in itself. Again, my inner creative person does not allow me to stop, and I launched International Fashion week Dubai in May 2015. My idea was to support worldwide designers bringing them to UAE as Dubai is an upcoming fashion hub, where they can establish their business in Dubai. Since 2015 IFWD is one of the most persistent and reliable International Fashion Week Dubai, and worldwide known event, and one of the top in UAE. I have struggled and worked very hard to reach this level. Worked all alone to make things happen. I knew what has to be done to bring this brand out of the box. I have faced plenty of issues but still stood strong. I, for sure, knew my hard work and thoughtfulness will never go in vain. I am one of those well thought out people who can understand everything, from art to fashion to hardware. Believe me, if you give me a nail and hammer in my hand and challenge me, I will surely make nail and hammer brands.

The time came when I launched the brand in the biggest fashion destination Paris, oh, it was not at all an easy job, but we made it happen in a huge, huge way. Another destination was Milan, and we became world-famous in the industry. In my life, there is no word called impossible what I want I can achieve for sure I don't need to look in someone else courtyard to grow my plants. I am a super creative and sensitive person by nature. I cannot stay angry at someone for a long time, it's not in my nature, my life is simple with not many commotions, I keep my style, a stylish person, work on my details...bags, shoes, and perfumes that I can buy from anywhere which I like no matter if its branded or nonbranded. My family is a very important part of me; before anything, my kids, husband, and parents come first. I am not a person who spends days and nights out with friends, but I am selective when it comes to making friends. I have very few but good friends. I am not a social bird and like to stay in peace and calm. I am an imaginary person who can imagine everything before its implication. My life is not complicated, very simple rules, don't do wrong with anyone and don't allow anyone to do wrong with you. Straight and confident is what I do…I don't like to go round the bush, fact full for every discipline of life, whether my home or office. I need things more on the perfection side, especially in the office I am much more organized than at home…my home is a relaxing place for us where I know no boundaries for happiness and togetherness

with my loved ones. I am sure I will be bringing innovations to the fashion world; launch International Fashion Awards IFWD season 5, and from there, continue.

more I will during it will

Dubai has become a home for my family and me. Being a woman is not so easy to survive in a man dominating societies. Still, I am the proof of woman empowerment who is strong enough to keep moving ahead without looking at any barriers, crossing all hurdles and making paths smooth day by day. Since I started my company in 2012, the pressures were in my mind, but I overcame all obstacles by my strategic planning and marketing skills and became power-packed. I am blessed that the fashion industry around the world knows me, and I am known for my work, which can be seen in my show worldwide.

Determinations to go even wider in fashion are plans for the future, and it will happen for sure, to become the best! The new ventures have already started during Season 10 of International Fashion Week Dubai, which has been planned for a long time. At last, it is taking shape along with a new International Fashion Council, a non-profit organization to support designers from all over the world. Another launch is our magazine Fashoiniste Dubai, this magazine will cater to fashion industry news and the inside of fashion. I keep moving on and on; new destinations will be waiting for us this year 2021, fingers crossed.
