WELCOME to the
ISSUE In fashion, as in life, September tends to be associated with a turning point of the year – a new season and bright beginnings.
As I write this early one morning, we are in Cappadocia, Turkey. Having just returned from shooting our Cover with actress and singer Victoria Justice while watching hundreds of hot air balloons float by in the freshly sunlit sky, I sit in my hotel room, an ancient cave carved into the mountain. The views are picturesque and expansive and I am embraced with the spirit of travel and adventure. This moment could not have been promised or anticipated – which is why it is so precious. For if life has taught me anything, it is that these moments are to be cherished. This is part of our philosophy at Modeliste – along with the belief that moments of beauty and joy can be celebrated and shared. So it with that inspiration we bring you the new September issue. Our cover story with Victoria Justice has been created in the most glorious of landscapes in Turkey from the vibrant city of Istanbul to the spectacular rock formations in Cappadocia. As with all of our issues of Modeliste, we celebrate the women we admire. We love Victoria Justice for her support of other women and numerous other philanthropic causes she holds close to her heart. We are inspired by her honest approach to life, her endless stream of talent and creativity as well as her sunny optimism and dedication to hard work. I feel so lucky to be the editor of Modeliste at this moment in time – and to work with such an extraordinarily talented team as well as have both Victoria’s mother as well as sister, Madison Grace share in our Turkish adventure. You’ll find our Cover star interview in the issue with Madison and Victoria interviewing one another which is gives a glimpse into their genuine bond and candid hilarity. A special thank you to Turkish Airlines bringing us to Turkey and sharing in our philosophy of widening our world. It is our hope that this issue will widen yours. Welcome to the Issue.

GET the LOOK VICTORIA JUSTICE
Celebrity makeup artist, LUSINE GALADJIAN (@makeupbylusine) tells how how she created Victoria Justiceâ€™s glamorous look for the September Cover.
First, I primed her lids using Too Faced Shadow Assurance 24 Hour Shadow Primer and smoked out the entire top lid and bottom lash line using Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette in the shade Saffron. I then smoked out the top lash line using a black shadow and lined the inner rim of her eyes with a brown kohl pencil. Next, I strategically placed a few individual lashes and out 2 coats of Pixi Beauty Lengthy Fiber Mascara on top and bottom lashes. For her brows I used Tamnova Brow Powder to shape and fill in where hairs looked sparse.

I first moisturized and prepped her skin using Smashbox Primerizer which is a moisturizer and primer in one, followed by Giogrio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation in the shade 5.75 and blended it with a Beauty Blender.
Next I concealed under her eyes using Jouer Cosmetics Essential High Coverage Concealer to brighten up under her eyes and set it with Laura Mercier Under Eye Brightening Powder and set the entire face with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. I contoured her cheekbones using Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit in light/medium. For blush I used Girlactik Star Blush in the shade Milan and highlighted the top of her cheekbones using Perricone MD No Makeup Highlighter/Illuminate for a natural glow.

Celebrated, talented and a voice of positivity and empowerment, Victoria Justice has much to be excited about these days. Joined by her sister, Madison Grace, on our Cover Photoshoot in Turkey, Victoria and Madison open up to one another in an exclusive interview on their upcoming projects, favorite beauty hacks and much more. Photographed by SARAH KRICK Victoria Justice: Hi Guys. I'm Victoria Justice.
Madison Grace: Oh yeah. You loved that one.
Madison Grace: Definitely.
Madison Grace: And I'm her sister, Madison.
Victoria Justice: Yeah. I have a really bad habit ... I love books so much and whenever I go into a bookstore, there are so many books that I see. I'm like, â€œI have to get that. I want to read that." And then I get home and I will start a couple of different books and then I have to actually finish one. So I made it a goal to finish this book, and it took me a little bit but ...
Victoria Justice: What are you currently binging?
Victoria Justice: And we're together on location right now in Cappadocia, Turkey, shooting our cover for Modeliste Magazine. We're here right now to sit down with you and get down to the nitty gritty, so we've compiled some questions for each other. Madison Grace: Obviously traveling here was such an experience. How do you like traveling on Turkish Airlines? Victoria Justice: I loved it. It was amazing. Well, this is our first time flying to Turkey, first of all, which was so exciting. And the whole flight experience was amazing! Everything. It was so comfortable. It was so cozy and so easy to like fall asleep. And I think one of my favorite things actually was their wide movie selection. There were like 200 movies. The categories just kept going. Madison Grace: Totally. Movies for days. Victoria Justice: And the food was really good too! Madison Grace: Okay. Victoria, What's your number one travel tip? Victoria Justice: My number one travel tip would probably be ... I always bring my favorite sleep mask with me to try and get some sleep on a plane. Drink lots of water and bring a good book. Madison Grace: I would say leave room in your suitcase because you never know what you can find at the places that you travel and want to bring back. Madison Grace: Let me ask you, What was the last good book you read? Victoria Justice: The last good book I read was probably Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. 20 SEPTEMBER 2019 | MODELISTE
Madison Grace: Worth it? Victoria Justice: I finished it recently - it was worth it. It was really good. Malcolm Gladwell is such a great author. I love books that I can really learn from and I felt like after I would read a chapter, I just felt a lot smarter. I really gained a lot of knowledge and it was a really good feeling. Madison Grace: Definitely. What's your favorite thing to do in your spare time? Victoria Justice: My favorite thing to do in my spare time is probably hang out with you. Madison Grace: Aw. Mine too, honestly. Victoria Justice: Hang out with you, hang out with my family, hang out with my dogs, cuddle with my dogs. Madison Grace: Go on hikes. Victoria Justice: Go on hikes. Exploring if I get the chance to. There are so many areas in LA that I feel like I haven't even explored yet. Madison Grace: Yeah, great, just get in the car and go on an adventure. Victoria Justice: I really love improv and going to see improv shows if I can. Listening to music, reading a good book, watching a good movie, and eating a good meal.
Madison Grace: Ooh, that's a good question. Okay, so I'm really getting into Naked and Afraid. It's great and I'm obsessed with it. I've binge-watched it. It's really interesting just seeing all these people, survivalists, come together and try to survive for 21 days in nature. They come across all these different problems and it's just really interesting. I highly recommend it. Madison Grace: What podcasts are you currently listening to? Victoria Justice: Actually going back to Malcolm Gladwell, he has a podcast called Revisionist History and it's really interesting. I just listened to one that was all about different kinds of creative people. There were people who are really creative and know exactly what they want to do at the beginning of their careers and have all the success. And there are also really creative people who take their entire lives and are never fully satisfied with their creative work. He was also talking about the song, Hallelujah, that was made famous by Jeff Buckley, but it was actually written by Leonard Cohen. It took him five years to write, and the whole process of how that song actually came to be was just really, really fascinating. Madison Grace: What is your favorite app? Victoria Justice: My favorite app would probably be ... I mean I use Instagram the most, but I don't know if that's my favorite app. I like this app called the Insight Timer. Madison Grace: Insight Timer... I'm like you. Victoria Justice: I use Insight Timer all the time when I go to sleep. And they have free meditations for sleeping or for grounding. It's just awesome with cool sounds that calm and soothe. It's really relaxing, and I think it's an important app.
MODELISTE | SEPTEMBER 2019 21
22 SEPTEMBER 2019 | MODELISTE
Madison Grace: Definitely. It has a community, which I love. I'm going to have to go with the Insight Timer too. I put it on every single night before I go to bed. My favorite one is "Breathing into Sleep". It gets me every time. I'm asleep in 10 minutes when I put it on. I'm out. Victoria Justice: "Breathing into Sleep" is the best! Madison Grace: Next question, What do you always keep in your purse? Victoria Justice: I always have lip balm. We're lip balm addicts in our household. Madison Grace: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Even our dad, like, "Do you have some lip balm?" He's so cute. Got you guys. Victoria Justice: Blotting sheets, if you're out, blotting sheets are key to have. And gum. Victoria Justice: Let's see, if you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Madison Grace: Sushi. I love sushi. Sushi, salmon, albacore, albacore belly. Love it all. Victoria Justice: I love sushi too. And Cuban food. They put tostones in the garlic dip, and like roasted pork, and rice and beans, and avocado. Madison Grace: That's the best. Victoria Justice: Three makeup products I can't live without. Probably my Burt's Bees lip balm. Concealer, I'm a concealer addict. I love concealer. And I love blush? I feel like those are the essential things. If you don't want to wear a lot of makeup, you just put some concealer on, some blush on, some tinted lip balm and automatically it just gives you a more awake, fresh look. Itâ€™s great and easy. Victoria Justice: What is the most important part of your skincare routine?
Madison Grace: What about you?
Madison Grace: Definitely.
Victoria Justice: Probably, when we both started using apple cider vinegar.
Victoria Justice: I love to go on adventures. I feel like I'm a pretty low-key person actually. I think people might think that because of what I do or whatever, it can seem so glamorous. Like, the hair and makeup or whatever. All the stuff, and the clothes and blah blah blah, maybe it would come across in a certain way. But I feel like I'm a pretty low-key person. In my everyday life, I wear Vans pretty much every day. I just like being comfortable. And... I'm kind of afraid of the dark and I'm really good at picking up things with my toes. I feel like some of my OG fans know this.
Madison Grace: Oh yeah, but you stuck to it more than I have. Victoria Justice: Yeah. I really stuck to it because I was having some issues with my skin and it was really not fun. I wanted to do something that was natural, and my mom had heard about it and she told me to try this. And so, I just get water and mix in a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, put it on a cotton pad and then just do my whole face. I feel like it's really helped my skin a lot. And it's natural. Madison Grace: Totally, your skin looks amazing. Madison Grace: What's your favorite thing about me? Victoria Justice: My favorite thing about you, so many things. It's hard to choose just one, but it's true. Probably, you're just the funniest person that I know for sure. I feel that's something most people don't know about you. If they were to just go to your profile or Instagram, they wouldn't really get a sense of how hilarious you are. You're one of the goofiest, weirdest people in the entire world in the most amazing way. You can always make me laugh. Constantly, I'm laughing if I'm with you! And you're so optimistic, you have such fun energy, good vibes, and you're outgoing. Madison Grace: Thanks Vic. Love you. Victoria Justice: What about me? What's your favorite thing about me? Madison Grace: Okay, so many things. I love how humble you are, how sweet you are, how you will always defend any of your friends or family members to the end. You're just literally one of the most genuine people I've ever met in my life. And you're my sister. I lucked out. I hit the Jackpot.
Madison Grace: Oh, I have to wash my face before I go to bed every night.
Victoria Justice: Aw, thanks Maddi.
Victoria Justice: Same, it's so weird. When I was younger,I would just go to bed with my makeup on, and now, the thought of that, I ... no.
Victoria Justice: Something that would surprise people about me is that I think maybe I'm more adventurous than people think.
Victoria Justice: What is your favorite workout? Madison Grace: That's a good one. I love, love my hot yoga. Victoria Justice: Oh yeah. Maddi's hardcore when it comes to hot yoga, I can't handle it. It's so intense. Madison Grace: What is the perfect evening for you? Victoria Justice: Perfect evening for me. Probably going out to a really good dinner, like sushi, and then I'd like watching a really good movie or going to see cool live music. I love live music. That would be awesome. And then maybe coming back home and taking a nice warm shower. Madison Grace: Yes, that sounds amazing. Victoria Justice: I'm such a grandma. Coming home at 10:30, taking a shower, and using my apple cider vinegar. Madison Grace: What's your earliest childhood memory? Victoria Justice: My earliest childhood memory. Oh gosh, I definitely have a lot of great childhood memories with you. I just remember so vividly, growing up in Florida, and we had a trampoline in our backyard and that was the highlight of our life. We would wake up in the morning and you and I would go jump on the trampoline. And Mark, he made a wooden swing for us and our friends. Madison Grace: The swing! MODELISTE | SEPTEMBER 2019 23
Victoria Justice: And he wrote on the bottom of it, "For Victoria and Madison and their friends." We moved out of that house and years later we went back... Madison Grace: And it's still there. Victoria Justice: And we went to the backyard and the swing's still there. And then I turned it around and the little note is still there, which was really cool. Madison Grace: That's so sweet, I remember that. Victoria Justice: Advice I would give is to be kind to yourself, I think that's really important. I think that's something that we all have to remind ourselves to do. And, not to be cheesy, I just want to say, Follow your dreams, listen to your heart and your soul and follow what makes you happy and what you're passionate about. And don't let anyone stop you from doing that and from being authentically who you are.
Victoria Justice: Probably Oprah. How amazing would it be to switch lives with Oprah for a day? Madison Grace: That would be incredible. She's so insightful. Victoria Justice: I mean, first of all to have all her wisdom for a day. And then I'm sure she just has like the craziest life, I don't know, it would just be awesome. Madison Grace: If I could switch with someone for one day, I think Katy Perry, I love her. I mean, I love all of her songs and just watching her on American Idol. Victoria Justice: And her wardrobe. Madison Grace: If your life was a song, what would the title be?
Madison Grace: What's a song that gets you pumped up?
Victoria Justice: Five More Minutes. I feel like just in general, "Just give me five more minutes. Yup. I'll be at the door in five minutes." I need just a little bit more timeâ€Ś.
Victoria Justice: A Lizzo song I would say. Like Juice, or Good as Hell. I like that one.
Madison Grace: Last question, What do you love most about Modeliste Magazine?
Madison Grace: What are you most excited about these days? Victoria Justice: These days, I am most excited about making music! I've been in the studio, and I've been writing and I've been really excited about some songs that I have that haven't been released yet.
Victoria Justice: That's a great one. I think what I love most about Modeliste Magazine would be the destination travel aspect of it - it is so cool! And I feel like just being here in Turkey is amazing getting to explore a different culture. And also, I feel like everyone in Modeliste has really just allowed me to do my thing, and incorporate my own style and it's been super collaborative and awesome.
Madison Grace: Me too, girl.
Madison Grace: Totally. I love that.
Victoria Justice: I haven't put out music in such a long time and I'm just excited about making music, and singing things that feel really real and honest to where I am right now and who I am at this point in my life. I mean, you know, I'm so passionate about music. I love it, it's just so much fun. It makes me happy. I just feel like my soul really comes alive!
Victoria Justice: So I am so excited for everyone to see this cover. It's been such an epic shoot and it's going to be really cool so I can't wait for it to come out. Love you Maddi. It was so fun being in a shoot with my sister too. She's the best ever. You guys should follow her. She's amazing.
Madison Grace: You're always singing every day; rehearsing at the house, or just around people! You can't help it. Victoria Justice: It makes the world turn perfectly. And it's just the best way to express myself. Madison Grace: If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?
Thank you so much Modeliste Magazine! We love you guys! Madison Grace: Thank you, we love you! Now we are off to our final dinner in amazing Cappadocia!
And thank you everyone so much for all the support always. You guys have no idea how much it means to me when I read your sweet comments on Instagram or Twitter or wherever. It genuinely can completely brighten my day and make me feel really loved and supported and happy.

FORGET THE KNIFE THE NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT REVOLUTION With the new advances in non-surgical technology available for sculpting and rejuvenating tissue, the gap between minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and cosmetic surgery is finally narrowing. The results that can be achieved are very impressive without the risks, downtime or expenses associated with surgery. Compared to surgery, there are more options available for treatments and techniques which give the physician considerable customization.

GIVE ME THE HEAT!
The latest in rejuvenation utilizes electricity to produce energy and conduct heat deep into the layers of the skin. This energy is measured in frequency or wavelengths per second and is in the same category as sound waves. Welcome to the age of Radiofrequency! Dr. Schweitzer states “this technology is color blind” therefore, it is available to all skin tones. This new standard in aesthetic medicine for new-generation rejuvenation is preferred because of its efficacy, safety, minimal down time and versatility. Dr. Schweitzer says that “radiofrequency is being used for a number of applications from skin tightening, improving acne, scar correction, skin rejuvenation, cellulite reduction, sculpting tissue to feminine care.”
RESTORE AND REVIVE
Radiofrequency treatments deliver energy deep into the dermis, promoting collagen and contraction of the skin. “In my office I utilize different radiofrequency treatments to rejuvenate, restore and sculpt tissue. These treatments can be prescribed as standalone procedures or in combination for optimum results.” Dr. Schweitzer explains.
FORMA ™ and FRACTORA™ Forma™ is a thermal contraction treatment which delivers optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of the skin. Jowls, neck, eyelids, and smile lines can be easily tightened with just a few treatments with zero down time.
Morpheus8 ™ is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis. This treatment fractionally remodels and contours tissue for a more sleek and smooth appearance. The perfect addition to further the results of both FaceTite™ and AccuTite™.
Fractora™ fractional radiofrequency skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is an effective treatment to slow the effects of aging and restore your skin, so you can look and feel younger. It can be used to improve fine or deep lines, lift droopy skin, skin tone, texture, and improve pigmentation for a complete facial rejuvenation.
EMBRACE RF™ FaceTite™ is a new procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation that delivers results comparable to a surgical facelift. It provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck utilizing radio-frequency heat to melt fat and tighten skin. AccuTite™ is a revolutionary procedure that delivers precision heat into areas that were difficult to treat with other modalities. Perfect for an eyebrow lift, lower and upper eyelid improvement, smooth heaviness around the mouth, jowls and neck. It can also improve areas of the body such as axilla “bra fat”, inner thighs, and knees.

On a scale of one to ten how excited are you about life right now? First of all, I love this question. I like to operate at a 13, haha. Not to go all existential, but what’s the point of all this if you’re not loving who you’re around and finding that which you love to do? Where were you born? I was born in a small village in Fes, Morocco, but I grew up in Orange County, California. How did you first get into acting? Tell us about your journey becoming an actress. Whew, embarking on this journey was a doozy. I loved acting from a young age, but I particularly enjoyed the theatre and the adrenaline rush that it comes with. Then I saw Xena, Warrior Princess, and like most girls of my generation wanted to throw her chakram around and ride off into the sunset atop a Palomino. Since I couldn’t have that, I decided I’d manifest my own version of that onscreen. When I was about 17 years old, I was scouted by a talent agent who is now my manager; I auditioned my butt off until I booked a role I was passionate about and it just sorta happened. I was also immensely lucky to have had the opportunities I’ve had. What you love most about being an actress? I love the confidence that comes with playing the roles I’ve been fortunate enough to play. The strangest thing happens when you don that costume for the first time and start to feel the character come to life – you’re going, “yeah. I feel tough in my own skin too.” There’s this fearlessness that is a big part of giving yourself completely to what you’re doing and it’s very empowering. What is the best thing that happened this year? I booked a video game that I’m crazy about (I can’t say much about it, however) and I’m thrilled to see how it turns out. What are your 3 favorite Fall fashion trends? I love the comeback neon is making, and also patent fabrics. Glossy, colorful eye makeup is another one that I’ve been enjoying. I love things that are wacky and different, so those trends are way up my alley. 134 SEPTEMBER 2019 | MODELISTE
If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would it be? Oh man…Chris Cornell. Hands down. Last book you read. Verses for the Dead, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I’m a huge crime thriller freak. What’s your favorite country to visit? So far, my favorite country to visit has been Italy but that can always change on a dime. The show’s next season will be taking us to Thailand so that could quickly become my new obsession. Upcoming projects you can tell us about? I’ll be working on a movie soon that shoots in Louisiana and stars Nicholas Cage, and I can’t wait to get started! We’re both detectives in the movie trying to figure out who’s been killing cops in the city, and I play his partner. Heels or flats? Heels…can I say boots? Lipstick or Lipgloss? Sofia: Lipstick Best beauty advice you’ve ever received? Pay the most attention to your skin; cause that’s the base the makeup goes on. If that’s kept in good shape, you’re good to go. :) Go-to beauty product at the moment? Anything made by RMS beauty – I’m obsessed with her products. I particularly love her cream blushes and eye polishes. What are you binge watching these days? I just finished binge watching season 1 of Absentia, I loved it! I told you, I’m a total crime thriller fanatic. Best fan moment? I was at one of the Golden Globes after parties surrounded by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and so many other actors and actresses I’ve watched and respected for so long and I had to just stand there and BE COOL. Whew. Lemme tell yah…much easier said than done. If you could star alongside any other actor/actress who would it be? I’m gonna fire away on that one and say Cate Blanchette. Goodness that woman is a force of nature. What would be the title of your autobiography? Haha, pretty sure it would be “How to Play with Fire and Not Burn” -- I definitely like to live on any kind of edge.
Why you love Modeliste Magazine I love that Modeliste is fresh, glossy but also keeps it interesting and creative. The stories you feature are always a nice, refreshing take on what these spreads usually are and I love the colors and the way itâ€™s all presented. MODELISTE | SEPTEMBER 2019 135

TURKISH AIRLINES Serves Up Serious Style On Your Next Business Class Trip
Your next Turkish Airlines Business Class flight might still come with that new car smell. That's because Turkish Airlines has announced that up to 30 new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will join the airline’s young and fast-growing fleet over the next four years, and each will feature the carrier’s bespoke, all-new Business Class cabins. Regarded as one of the most advanced aircraft for its fuel efficiency and range flexibility, the 787-9 Dreamliner will open new routes for Turkish Airlines, reinforcing its status as the carrier that flies to more destinations than any other. The new aircraft will offer passengers refined comfort during the longest journeys across 313 destinations in 124 countries. 138 SEPTEMBER 2019 | MODELISTE
Within a spacious wide-body cabin featuring larger overhead luggage bins and extra-large windows, the 787-9 Dreamliner also offers dimmable LED window shades that give greater control over light entering the cabin. A new filtration, better air pressure, and greater humidity helps passengers feel less dryness and reduces fatigue. Meanwhile, the engines, interior, systems, and equipment all feature vibration isolation, which means you're in for a quieter on-board experience when flying Turkish Airlines. The sleek, modern cabins provide the perfect setting to enjoy Turkish Airlines’ award-winning on-board dining and inflight entertainment. For Business Class passengers especially, the 787-9 Dreamliner elevates this experience even higher. The fancy, new Dreamliners feature 30 exceptional, all-new Business Class seats, offering a unique in-flight experience.
The lighting scenarios, for example, draw inspiration from the colorful sunsets of Turkeyâ€™s central Cappadocia region and idyllic turquoise beaches. A modern, traveler-friendly 1-2-1 layout offers allaisle access to Business Class passengers. Enhanced privacy panels, personal closed stowage space, a self-care mirror, and a wide cocktail table maximizes space to offer ultimate comfort and introduces a privileged experience. Forty-four-inch legroom and a 180-degree fully-flat 76-inch seat bed are provided for each of the 30 seats. Increased seclusion comes from the adjustable privacy panel between the paired middle seats and newly designed seat shell. An 18-inch HD video display and touchscreen remote control raise the entertainment offering. Suede-like alcantara padding -- commonly found in sports cars -- used for the interior trimming of each Business Class seat, adds another welcome touch of luxury and refinement.

For added style, Turkish Airlines has started to welcome its Business Class passengers on intercontinental flights with the elegant and sophisticated designs of Versace. If airlines charged for amenity kits, this is one you'd probably want to pay for. Each set comes with socks, earplugs, a sleep mask, Versace lip balm, hand lotion and facial mist. What makes this collection distinct is that these new amenity kits, designed exclusively for Turkish Airlines, are prepared for men and women passengers separately, keeping their individual needs in mind. The functional design of the bags, available in different colors, makes their use after the flight more appealing. And the must-have moisturizers by Versace, inside the special pocket of the bag, ensure the passengers have a comfortable time during their long flights. The other travel set offered for economy class passengers on intercontinental flights is designed by Mandarina Duck, renowned for bringing innovative and functional solutions to travelers with its smart and unique designs. This set includes sleep mask, socks, earplugs, lip balm, toothbrush and toothpaste. Attentive to present natural and high-quality dermocosmetic products to its passengers, Turkish Airlines also offers the products of Atelier Rebull, who has a deep rooted past dating back to 1895, in its new travel kits. The mentioned brand, whose products are currently provided in Economy Class lavatories of the airline, offers lip balms as skin care product in these travel kits.
And then there is the Turkish Airlines cabin crew, whose new uniforms redefine elegance in the sky. Italian haute couturier Ettore Bilotta designed the new cabin uniforms, which were developed to celebrate the airlineâ€™s 85th anniversary. Inspired by many classical details in Turkish culture, from the currents of the Bosphorus to the artisanal glassware, ceramics and calligraphy patterns produced by local artisans, the cabin, cockpit, ground handling personnel and flying chef uniforms came to life under a single design in order to give their passengers a holistic brand experience.
140 SEPTEMBER 2019 | MODELISTE
The new uniforms in flag-red and anthracite gray colors were rigorously tested on longrange flights and have since been tailored to 25,000 employees in order for cabin crews to serve passengers comfortably. Each were specially sewn by Vakko, and the main fabrics were produced by Altinyildiz, based on the compliance of Turkish Airlines with flight standards. And while the uniform bears elements of Turkish culture, the most important signature style for Turkish Airlines is its unrivaled service quality. By choosing Business Class, you can feel special in the skies not only with award-winning dishes, the latest in-flight entertainment system and comfortable seating, but also with friendly, helpful attentive service from the crew, who are always willing to go the extra mile for their best customers.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard Turkish Airlines, the airline of the future. MODELISTE | SEPTEMBER 2019 141

Trails through lush green jungle cross the hills to remote villages on the other side of the island otherwise reached only by boat. Colorful kayaks bob across the turquoise waters heading to a nearby secluded beach. Snorkelers and swimmers, hikers, climbers and birdwatchers enjoy the tranquility and relaxed pace away from the bustling tourist destinations.

The resort is committed to community and exemplary service.

The important issue with career development is to keep a clear sense of method and sequence in what you do. Skill, the art of negotiation and attention to detail will be the focus. In dealings with authorities, make sure you have a sense of respect for their position in the scheme of things, as well as your own. New people and opportunities will open the doors that you've been knocking at for some time. For those in a relationship, there may be a change in your social spectrum as you begin to enjoy the company of new and different people.
You can be gripped by the desire to change, evolve, and improve this month. If you’ve been toying with the idea of making a lifestyle change, things can come together now after some starts and stops or delays. You may also find yourselves in joint endeavours in order to make great gains. Opportunities to express yourself through romance, pleasure, and the arts abound. You will see some sort of tangible reward–an opportunity that likely revolves around creative self-expression, the arts, children, or romance. This is a time for taking off and achieving your goals.
This can be a time for discovering a new passion or interest, or rekindling an exciting project or study. For some, romantic opportunities can emerge while traveling, pursuing your studies, through the internet, or through activities that take you outside of your usual routine. You have more courage to try new things and you’re super motivated to learn, share, and connect. You might reach out to others in an attempt to validate yourself, looking for ways to boost your confidence. This can be a wonderful period for blending your agenda with a significant other.
You are likely to find it easier than usual to express yourself in concrete ways and to find an appreciative audience as well. Some will have an increased workload or a new line of work altogether. This may see you operating in a more solitary capacity than usual or with family members. Investments in stocks and other speculative matters could earn nice profits, although care should be exercised with any dealings that tie you to other people and others’ money. Exploring your sexuality features as well.
Your creativity and social life are stimulated, and plenty of opportunities to express yourself uniquely and creatively will present themselves. Those with artistic or athletic talent can be especially prolific and prosperous at this time. Healthy risks are likely to pay off, but be careful of overconfidence in speculative investments. Pregnancy or childbirth may occur during this period, if applicable. You might find that partners or close associates from the past will come back into your life. This is a fabulous period in which to take a vacation you’ve always wanted to take.
You are apt to review how effective you have been on a financial level to date, and find some dissatisfaction with your progress. Financial success may not be remarkable, yet it is generally steady, if slow to come by. Some of you may experience a change of family constitution, with people coming or going unexpectedly or with dramatic suddenness. So too could the emotional life of some may go through dramatic change. Some of you could be in or out of a new or old family group with blinding speed.
You continue to discover exactly what you are capable of doing, without the rosecolored glasses. You see your limitations now, but also your capabilities, in a realistic manner. You also recognize your responsibilities. You may be in the right place at the right time if you trust to fortune. Some will want to study or travel or both and thus open new horizons. Some will find themselves in contact with an old flame, others may find themselves uncertain about what they want and need to withdraw into an inner or more private cycle of activity.
This period will bring an increase in responsibility or workload for some while for others there will be a change in the pattern of daily tasks, perhaps brought about by an end, a separation or a new cycle in the family. Many of you will find you have to work harder or be more focused in the next four weeks. Some of you may begin a new line of business or work while for others it will be an end. You are far less inhibited when it comes to expressing yourself creatively, and you are a lot more fun to be around.
