Most of all I'm proud of our beauty contest Miss TheGlam Monaco International, as we did not plan to do it actually, our task was to help with the organization of the event. As a result we created it from scratch in 3 weeks and blew up the entire Cote dâ€™Azur! We had so many guests that there was literary no place for them to seat!
KATERINA FESENKO FOUNDER 8
ach of your projects involves women who are not only beautiful, but also successful. Why do you think it is not enough for a woman to be just a pretty face? Well, it may be enough for a good and ordered life. But I guess a modern woman does not need much from this world, she needs ALL! Not only beauty or money, success or family, she needs all these components for her happiness.
Children. Moreover we received additional licenses for our international beauty contest Mrs.Universe, and now we will send candidates not only from France, Monaco and Lithuania, but also from Britain and Lebanon. In general we try to make all our events charitable, cause there cannot be true beauty without compassion.
Tell us about your daughter. Does she enjoy attending your events? Yes, she is the smallest guest of our events. She studies at British school, is fond of photography, drawing and astronomy. With her I learned all the planets and properties of the solar system. And, of course, from the very childhood she likes to participate in photo shootings. She was even on the cover of one children's magazine. Also she adores swimming and water, like her father.
er 80% bring only 20% of the results. So the whole secret of time management is to understand which 20% of our efforts will bring you the maximum result and avoid urgent, but not important matters.
Last year in winter you had an incredible charity event "One night miracle in Monaco". Do you plan to organize something this year? No, this year we have already taken part in a large-scale charity event, Ocean Gala Dinner organized by Caudwell
How do you manage it all? Share your secrets of time management. To be honest, I donâ€™t really manage to do all that I would like to. There are always more thoughts and projects in my head than time, so I have to slow down a bit and direct efforts at the most important things. I support the Koch's 80/20 theory: only 20% of all our actions bring 80% of the results, while anoth-
What do you like the most about Cote d'Azur? The climate, of course, and also a very grateful audience that is always glad to enjoy interesting events and can appreciate everything you do. Share an exclusive beauty secret from Katerina Fesenko. Mental detoxâ€Ś You need to clear your thoughts and feelings, and get through internal conflicts â€” then you become younger and younger, regardless of age. 2017
Our main project is the TheGLAM PR agency â€” we discover to Europe new top and photomodels. We cultivate the image of the model, starting from the photo shoots with top European photographers, to mentioning them in the media and developing social networks, as well as collaboration with the brands. We also have the Top25photomodels magazine and now work hard on the new direction of digital marketing.
JULIYA DELANI FOUNDER 10
there are disputes, but these are trifles, really, that are very quickly forgotten. What is your most ambitious dream? To establish the largest publishing house and the largest advertising company. But this is not just a dream — I study every day and attend many trainings and seminars to make it happen.
o w does your day begin? It begins with coffee and the latest news in the world of fashion and show business. What distinguishes Top25photomodels from other tabloids? It brings focus on models: we are looking for interesting types and potential in every young and pretty girl. By the way, beauty is absolutely not important in modeling today. There is a clear tendency towards accentuating the imperfections or, better to say, peculiarities, such as gap between teeth, large forehead or distance between eyes, hollow cheekbones, narrow lips, etc.
You are also a popular abstract artist. Last year, your painting "The Soul of the Ocean" was sold at a charity auction… Yes, it is very important for me to help others. I am planning to launch a charity fund to help children from Ukraine, as in winter many of them don’t even have warm clothes and shoes, not to mention the seriously ill children who need treatment. I'm glad that my paintings can help them. Also I create paintings to order. Most often they are ordered by architects from France, Italy and Switzerland willing to create unique designs at homes, hotels and restaurants. I’ve recently finished 5 paintings for a boutique hotel in Geneva. In spring I plan to have an exhibition in Milan and Geneva. I never paint when I feel blue or tired, cause it'll be energetically transmitted. My paintings bring good luck and well-being because I paint them at the peak of positive emotions. Three beautiful and successful women in one team — is it easy for you to work together? Surprisingly enough we get on very well. We are like puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together. Of course, sometimes
So what are your next steps? There are many interesting projects ahead! Now we set for Dubai, expanding distribution and organizing there one very global and interesting event with the European celebrities and Instagram stars. Our event will be seen by more than 10 million socially active audience. What’s your favorite place in the world? Italy, definitely, as people there are very open and friendly. In summer it’s also France, and in winter — only Asia. Share an exclusive beauty secret from Juliya Delani. Eat less, move more!:) Of course it’s all about eating healthy food, vitamins, sleeping well and not drinking alcohol. But most importantly, you should avoid stress — then your beauty and youth will stay for long.
YULIA BERISSET FOUNDER
ho creates your outfits? I create my looks myself and prefer clothes by young designers. I'm not a fashion victim: for me “fashionable” means clothes that fit perfectly and flatter the curves. Although I try to follow the latest trends, I like more classic, feminine looks. Today fashion is very diverse and there are many cool brands with stylish pieces that only a few people know. It gives opportunity to stand out from the crowd, especially in Monaco. What is TheGlam’s mission? We want to create a new and unique community where a woman can prove herself and show all her virtues. Nowadays popularity has become even more important than appearance. And we’re working to develop it among our clients. TheGlam Girl is a girl of the new millennium. She strives for beauty, doesn’t give up evolving herself and working. Smart, beautiful and ambitious, and most importantly, not scared to open up to the world. During our work there have already been cases when a young model, a student or a housewife broke into the world market of fashion and beauty in less than 1 year! So I don’t exaggerate the abilities of our team. A woman against violence and in defense of children — under this motto was held the contest "Mrs. Universe France, Monaco 2017". Why was this topic chosen? This topic has always been crucial. Whatever deep and beautiful inner world a woman has, we are still a weaker
sex, and as a rule, men always dominate. Unfortunately they may often do it through assault and many women feel helpless. Our mission is to show those who suffer domestic violence that there’s always a way out. After all, we are treated the way we allow it. Not everyone is able to say NO for various reasons, but many follow the leader. And we choose the most worthy and respected woman in the country, who undoubtedly must be strong and set an example to others. You pay much attention to charity. What are your future plans? Where beauty reigns, there is always a place for mercy. We are planning to organize two major events next year in Monaco: Mrs. Universe France, Monaco, England, Lithuania and Lebanon, as well as Miss TheGlam Monaco International 2018. We are going to link them with children’s charity fund. Today we cooperate with two global organizations — Arctic World Club, which helps children in South Africa and the Caudwell Children Foundation helping children in Europe with Down’s Syndrome. Your work needs a lot of energy. And how do you relax? I like spending time with my family. My husband and I often go to Italy or France for a weekend. I really love SPA. Sometimes, a good relaxing massage may go for a week of vacation! I also like walking on the seashore. As a rule, I leave my phone at home and go for a walk or a jog: the power of water has an incredible effect on me, it’s relaxing and energizing at the same time. The best ideas come at these very moments. What do you do to stay fit? It's no secret that to look good you need to work hard. And a woman can’t have days off in this! 8 hour sleep is very important to me. Also I don’t eat red meat and try to stick to a low-carb diet. Most recently I’ve fallen in love with Ashtanga yoga. It settles the nerves and gives harmony to the body and spirit, which is so important today, in the time of stress and endless races. What is your most ambitious dream? To gather all the most famous, beautiful and successful men and women of the Planet in one place and arrange the greatest celebration of women's beauty in the world.
All my days are different, that's why I love my job. As I lead several projects at the same time, I constantly meet new people and do a lot of traveling. Almost every day I have training and dinner with my beloved husband â€” we almost never miss this ritual. I go to sleep at about midnight, an 8-hour healthy sleep on weekdays is extremely important to me.

COVER STORY ANNA VASYLEVSKA 14
TALENTED IS WHO TALENTED DOES THE STORY OF SUCCESS OF ANNA VASYLEVSKA
Mark Twain once said “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” The Ukrainian supermodel Anna Vasylevska knows exactly what it means. Everything she does is full of love and devotion — whether it’s bringing up her son, judging the most prestigious European beauty pageants, playing the leading role in films and theatre performances or shooting for the top brands…
“To become successful a pretty face is not enough. You need great work capacity and hardworking skills, ability to pose and get through never-ending castings, to beflexibleandcompliant… Those who are willing to work — get the jobs. I do know it. I was often told “no”. She is truly passionate about her work, her family, her personality and her life as a whole. Anna is sure that the more you love yourself, the more love you give to the world. That’s why no day in Anna’s life lacks personal care. It may be a good work-out, a massage, some daily beauty routines — but every day her body should feel love and care. Being a professional model and actress Anna

knows how important is to invest into yourself and develop your skills. Being a beautiful woman, Anna is sure that appearance is not crucial for becoming a successful supermodel. You may not believe it but Anna wasn’t accepted to the modeling school at the age of 13 because of the excess weight and “very conspicuous appearance”. With her own experience she shows that if you set a goal and work hard you’ll achieve it! At the very beginning of Anna’s stunning career she felt the lack of acting skills and went to acting classes. Her musical education came in handy when she was invited to play in the theatre. Anna had to prepare 2 songs and her performance was a great success! Talented is who talented does, indeed! Aside from performing in the theater Anna Vasylevska starred in several films. The directors notice how magnificently she is getting into character. Her ambitious dream, or better to say — the goal she sets for herself — is to star in Hollywood, to get a leading role in a film of an Oscar-winning director who will be able to reach her potential and reveal her insights. Another goal is to work with top European brands. Anna is often compared to Monica Bellucci for her inner graciousness and this slight Oriental look so she would suit perfectly for Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign. Anna has been often invited to jury the beauty contests. It’s not surprising as she has been working in modeling business for 15 years. During this time she has not only built a success-
ful modeling carrier herself, but also held classes in model school and prepared girls for competitions. Knowing this sphere inside out Anna Vasylevska is a perfect judge — she understands the participants and therefore is very objective. And usually it’s enough to see the first entrance for her to define three winners. Anna is also known for
“When you take a piece of clothing, think — what will it say about you? You need to emphasize yourself, your inner you, not the clothes. Never wear clothes only because they are in. You will look the same as many other girls who strive for being trendy. Always think what you want to say to the world with your look.” A top-rated supermodel
“I’m loyal but fair. If a person has already come on stage — it’s already 5 out of 10! The vast experience I have helps me to be fully objective. On student beauty contests there are one criteria. On Miss pageants — other. On Mrs. contests appearance goes into the background, the more important is the girl’s inner world and what she has achieved in the social sphere. Right now I am going to a model competition in Poland — it’s not for the beauty queens, but for those who will receive contracts with top brands. I’m happy that I have this huge experience, it’s really priceless!” her pure taste and stylish looks. Working with professional stylists and directors, staging beauty contests and runway walks — for so many years she has evolved great sense of fashion. “I don’t like oversize clothes. I think that woman should be sexy and I try to accentuate all my feminine curves. I love good fabrics, hats and lush looks. And I don’t like many small details.” Exclusive advice from Anna Vasylevska on how to find your style:
working with the biggest brands, a talented actress and a professional stylist, Anna Vasylevska is also a TV journalist by profession. And she is going to have her own talk show one day. “I love everything that I do — every shooting, every film, every advertising campaign — I feel like all my dreams come true and with every new project I am becoming the better version of myself, better and happier. I am sure that the best is yet to come. My major role is waiting for me.”

the golden standard of beauty
ngelina Jolie is like Chanel — she never goes out of style. All the men want her, and all the women want to be here. There are obviously many beautiful women in Hollywood, but only a few generate the same kind of overwhelming interest across genders and sexual orientations that she does. She hasn’t always been a style icon. Being a Hollywood’s Wild Child in the “90s she used to make rather strange fashion choices. But once If you ask people what they’ve a Goth girl with vials of blood around her neck evolved into one of the most admired stars of always wanted to do, most people her generation for her humanitarian work and haven’t done it.

The “BOOTY BOOM” how Kim Kardashian made hourglass curves trendy again
“In recent years I'm, like, too cool for duck face. So that doesn't happen.”
im Kardashian has climbed her way from reality shows and leaking sex tapes to the world of high fashion. Now she is sitting front row at shows like Givenchy and Balmain and wears outfits designed for her by brilliant Jean Paul Gaultier and Alber Elbaz of Lanvin. Many people say that she is just famous for being famous. But she is obviously today’s greatest fashion icon and trend-setter. One of the trends we could forever thank Kim for making popular, it's tight, body-accentuating clothing, from dresses and bodysuits to tight jeans and pencil skirts. Being also an icon of the fuller booty trend, Kim looks absolutely different from the pale willowy models and it’s no wonder that she is proud of her famous curves and wants to show them off! Kim's bum hasn't just broken the Internet, it's broken the way a whole generation of girls see themselves. A decade ago women tried hard to make their buttocks smaller but today they Google ways to make them even bigger! Even on the
“Well, a bear can juggle and stand on a ball and he's talented, but he's not famous. Do you know what I mean?”
“I’ll cry at the end of the day… not when I have fresh makeup on.”
red carpets celebrities are much more interested in showing off their barely covered derrieres than their ample cleavage. “We’re Officially in the Era of the Big Booty,” — stated a Vogue headline. Girls scream for “Brazilian butt lift,” in which fat is liposuctioned from other regions in the body to “pop” the butt. Also an entire fitness industry has emerged on social media dedicated to building a Kardashian-style derriere without going under the knife. Women are not afraid of looking womanlike anymore. They don’t want to be a rack for clothing, they want to rock — like Kim. Being a fashion icon, Kim Kardashian is also a good entrepreneur who has profitable side businesses. Except for being a founder of the television production company, Kimsaprincess Productions LLC, she also owns D-A-S-H clothing boutiques (together with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe), designed a variety of clothing and products, released the successful 2014 mobile game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”, launched her emoji pack for iOS devices called Kimoji, which had a number featuring her bum and after having babies with Kanye West also launched a children's clothing line. Isn’t it too much? Not for a girl like Kim. This year she also launched her own makeup brand KKW — https://kkwbeauty.com/. First came the Crème Contour and Highlight Kit that were sold out during the first 3 hours on sale. And it’s not surprising, as 103 millions of followers on Instagram admire her makeup that always looks picture perfect. Kim is not only a woman, who made full booties “in”, but also the one who turned everyday makeup into art and made face-countering technique a cultural phenomenon. Well, she herself is a “pop culture phenomenon”. It’s not me saying. It’s Vogue.
TOM FORD Fucking fabulous
Now everything is popular at the same time, and you can wear vintage of anything, so there isnâ€™t one trend anymore. If you have an amazing '60s jacket or an amazing 80s jacket, you can wear it
ucking fabulous” — it’s the name of Tom Ford’s latest limited-edition fragrance, set to launch exclusively at the brand’s directly owned retail stores just in time for his Spring/Summer 2018 runway show in New York. But isn’t it a bang-on description of the designer himself? Long time ago when Gucci was far from being a brand one flamboyant and hard-working American designer rocked the fashion world with his bold reinvention of the company and saved it from near bankruptcy. Tom Ford was in charge of designing 11 product lines and worked eighteen-hour days. Later on he became also Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent. When he left in 2004 Gucci Group was valued at $10 billion. And you know how many people were hired to split the work Ford had done? Four! But of course he didn't leave empty-handed: according to Forbes he retained stock options worth around $100 million and reinvented himself as the “Tom Ford” label and… Oscar-nominated filmmaker! He dressed Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Daniel Craig, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Julianne Moore, Hugh Jackman — we may continue enumerating celebs admiring his talent forever! And his Spring/Summer 2018 runway show was an unofficial kickoff to the week, drawing a significant list of celebrities and supermodels: Kim Kardashian West, Julianne Moore, Ciara, Cindy Crawford, Doutzen Kroes, Chaka Khan and Liberty Ross were among the well-dressed ladies in the front row, and the diverse runway casting included many of modeling's biggest names, like Joan Smalls, Binx Walton, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Ford is a great fashion influencer. He not only
I've never understood people who want to do something and be number two, or number four or five or 47 designs clothes, but also shoots ad campaigns and manages the licenses Estée Lauder, Marcolin and now, watches with Bedrock Manufacturing, with which Ford partnered to develop Swiss-made timepieces that will launch in 2018. It’s a strategy that has worked. Tom Ford sells about 1.6 million pairs of eyewear a year, and in Estée Lauder’s latest fiscal year, sales of the Tom Ford fragrance and cosmetics businesses combined were up 52%. Ford lays out his ambitious plans to become one of the top five luxury brands in the world, with annual retail revenue on track to hit nearly $2 billion in 2017, according to market sources. What is his secret? Well, he is both criticized and loved for his bold designs and provocative ad campaigns. The New York Magazine wrote “Every season, Ford created an „It“ piece, a must-have, a season-defining trend, photographed to death, knocked off ad nauseam.” Sure, there have been missteps — like Ford's Penis Pendant Necklace, which stirred up a controversy with Christians who mistook it for an obscene crucifix — but nothing that Ford couldn't handle. There’s something inherently straightforward and, really, American about Ford and his brand. Sexy, shiny, bold and… fucking fabulous. 2017

are beautiful inside and outside! The best team I have ever worked with.

What do you wear in everyday Share your beauty secrets. Every day I eat a few figs and 7 life? I like good quality fabrics and olives and drink plenty of water. The women of my generation have black color. Mostly I choose this tradition which keeps them casual and comfortable looks: young and beauty for a long time! I am going to work on my new collection

REALFASHIONIST Zaklina Berrido Pisano
aklina Berrido Pisano @realfashionist is 49 years old. The beautiful mother of two and grandmother of two gorgeous girls aged 6 and 4, she is a style icon and a fashion marketing influencer. She has no Italian origins but her soul does: “Living in Italy is a privilege. It's like living in a museum under the open sky…“
What’s fashion for you? Fashion is fun. Joy. Escape from boring life, but not an obsession. It’s being open-minded. Not being afraid to experiment. Ability to travel… Today's media is telling us: you are “over” after 30. But I try to prove that it’s not true. What are your favorite brands? Italy is famous for style, cutting-edge fashion and high quality of leather goods. My favorites are: Cesare Paciotti, Giuseppe Zanotti, Casadei, Sergio Rossi, Bvlgari Dolce Gabanna, Gucci and Prada. But I shop at different shops: at thrift stores, high-end stores and even department stores. Love Zara and H&M Studio. I mix my fashion!
You like accessories: glasses, watches, purses. Are there some rules of wearing them? I've got a closet full of neutrals — navy, black, camel, or gray. It’s good to add some energy to the outfit with boldly-hued shoes, sunglasses and bags. I prefer to wear a neutral base with shoes and a bag in two different complementary colors. Scarf and sunglasses are my ultimate accessory. I always have one in my purse to transform a T-shirt into something that elevates my outfit to another level simply by making a knot. Who is your favorite photographer? Well, first, it’s my husband — he did many of my pictures and thanks to him Realfashionist grew up. Then — Mario Testino. You lived in many countries. Where is your heart? My husband is Italian. So as my heart is. Once I made a decision to move to Italy and never regretted. It's a place of a sun, joy and beautiful people. Beautiful beaches, history, architecture… Great food, amazing coffee and fashion at its best! Do you have a hobby? I read, constantly. It’s an opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge of the entirety of human history. Right now I'm reading "O Aleph" by Paulo Coelho, "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne and »La bella addormentata in quel posto" by Luciana Littizzetto. What’s the most important thing in making an outfit? It’s a limited color palette. You choose a color scheme to build your wardrobe around, and then stick to it, so that each garment you buy works with every other piece. What is so trendy in fashion this fall? It's all about colors. Warm colors — Red, Pink, Fuchsia, Orange, then Blue, Green — monochrome look. Wearing one color is anything but boring! I would say that monochrome never goes out of style.
What helps you stay in such a perfect shape? True change starts at the end of a comfort zone! You don’t become a billionaire by working 40 hours a week. Extreme results require extreme efforts. I exercise all my life. For me it's a part of daily routine, as brushing my teeth. I take a good care of my body, cause it's a vehicle for my soul. I don’t eat refined sugars, flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. I eat avocado a day, rely on organic diet that consists mostly of vegetables and meat, fish, sea fruits and stay away from processed foods. No alcohol, no cigarettes. Lots of fruits, water and fresh juices. That’s all my philosophy. Share your beauty tips. Stay happy. Be optimist. Don't forget to moisturize.

Story of Success
Of course such incredible success is the result of hard work. But there is also a touch of fortune. The beautiful and creative Alana was in the right place at the right time. At first, DIY videos did well. When this format was popular, she was among the first ones who started to present it right. “The audience think of me as of a close friend. I share my life, thoughts and advice, raise their spirits and, I hope, inspire them. They feel it and that’s why they are with me.”- says Alana. The one thing that upsets Alana is that the more number of the audience grows, the less time she is able to devote to everyone, as communication with her followers, as well as good feedback, is very important for her. Now she is focusing on humorous life sketches and continues to analyze what her audience like the most,

Alana Venum’s tips for newbiebloggers:
1. Work hard, shoot a lot 2. Love your job and don’t put money first. 3. Find yourself an icon and look up to him or her 4. Tirelessly repeat paragraph #1
trying to make content even better. “I love this and I feel like I'm in the right place. Money has never been the main goal for me, you know. I just love to create.” Of course with such popularity every day the girl receives many commercial proposals from various brands. But she chooses brands very thoroughly. Alana and her husband categorically refuse to work with alcohol, tobacco, spiritualism, personal hygiene products, medicines, binary shareholders and any other “scammers”. Although such companies usually offer the largest sums of money, they always refuse to cooperate with them as her good reputation costs much more. That’s why they give preference only to their favorite brands. Alana also invites stars to her videos. And though it doesn’t influence the number of views it is always good for content: new faces, new stories. “I would like to invite Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez sometime. We could shoot "Exchanging partners" (laughs). It is obvious that Alana has very tender feelings to her husband Ruslan. She also calls him the best blogger ever and the example to follow. “I started it myself, but now he is an intrinsic part of the project. He invests his time, resources and ideas and supports me in every possible way, and I am very grateful to him!” Alana’s dream is to stay always young and preserve her love to husband, to life and to herself forever. By the way love to yourself she considers the main beauty secret for every girl.
Story of Success
s a person of contrasts: being a circus artist in her childhood, she’d been working in mining industry for 7 years. Right now she is a Director of the International Business Agent Company that runs beauty shops in Mongolia, providing women with the best European cosmetic and skincare brands. A businesswoman with versatile interests, a loving mother and a Buddhist — let’s find out how she manages to balance it all in her life:
Running business means serving others. Good quality with affordable price is our priority. You were among sponsors of Madame the Glam de Monaco 2017. Did you like the show? I fully enjoyed contestants’ final night. Amazing that women present themselves through beauty, fashion, culture, talent, country, family. I adore all the girls and I’m definitely very proud of Madame the Glam de Monaco team. Monaco is one of your favorite places, right? Absolutely! You know, when I was 7, my mom told me: “If you patiently exercise your daily workouts, you’ll become a talented artist and go to Festival International du Cirque de Monte Carlo for the Golden Clown prize”. It was my childhood dream! And when I was in Monaco for the first time I just loved it instantly — it’s small, beautiful, safe and people are so kind and good-hearted! I made lots of friends and business connections in Monaco. I guess I’ll stay here one day.
What’s your fondest childhood memory? My father was a bass guitar player and singer in Mongolia’s first stage band Soyol-Erdene in 80’s. My mother was a trapeze artist in Mongolian Circus. While my dad was performing in Germany for 6 months with his band, my mom and I performed in Gasser Olympia Circus in Switzerland for 2 years. We visited all the cities in Switzerland, even Nice Cote d’Azur. I’ll never forget the amazing birthday party that directors, artists and workers of Gasser Olympia prepared for me when I was 7. These 2 years in Switzerland was really a priceless experience! How did you start working in mining industry? So after my graduation I started to work in mining industry because of boom in that sphere. But then I began to travel a lot, registered my own company Ikhgarudai Trade LLC and started retails beside my office job at mining industry.
How do you choose brands for your shops? Running business means serving others. Good quality with affordable price is our priority. Because we are taking care of our customers’ beauty and skin health, I think more about manufacturers’ trustworthiness than famous brand names. Do you use many cosmetics in your daily life? It might sound funny, but I don’t put make up every day, just occasionally. For skincare I love essential oils and organic products. Lately I’m enjoying Le Chateau Du Bois of Provence which is made of the finest lavender in the world. What are your favorite European brands? I adore Yves Saint Laurent and Dior perfumes, Balmain cashmere clothes. Also I have fever for Agent Provocateur lingerie. As for shoes and bags, it is definitely Jimmy Choo.
Mongolia is one of the few countries with almost untouched natural beauty and resources. 95
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND
arianna Yermakova can’t imagine her life without jewelry. After moving to France to study fashion management in 2003, she worked in Cartier International head office and later as an assistant boutique manager of Van Cleef & Arpels boutique located at the world-famous Place Vendôme. This is where she fell in love with the sparkling world of diamonds and precious stones. No matter how many fashion events and pop-up boutiques she organized later on, high jewelry has always been in her life. Now she is a Founder and Art Director of Makova Jewelry — a new, trendy and chic brand which will soon be presented in multibrand fashion stores. So how appeared the idea of your own brand? Well, I totally fell in love with high jewelry when working on the Place Vendome in Paris, among the highest jewelry houses like Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Then I got married, moved to Cote d’Azure, had 2 beautiful daughters, Alexandra and Tiffany, but many of my former clients kept asking me for help with this or that piece of jewelry. They knew that I had been working with the best jewelers, accredited in large jewelry houses. This is not a workshop on the street corner, you know. It’s not so easy to get in touch with them and build long-term relationship. So if people wanted to do something exclusive with their own stones and be involved into creative process, they always came to me.
Can I come to you with my granny’s jewel and ask you to do something special and unic with it? Yes, if you found some old family jewel and want to refashion it or you bought a stone and want to create a beautiful design with it — any client’s fantasies can get real. All the jewelry houses actually did it about 100 years ago. But now not a single house will agree to refashion your jewel and put their brand on it. They think about making money, not saving yours. And I have one-to-one contact with all of my clients and they always come back to me. What’s your price range? €4 000 to €10 000. And if we use client’s materials, the price turns out to be more than affordable for an exclusive jewelry.
Are you going to present your line in multibrand fashion stores? Sure, it will be something trendy like cocktail brooches for clutches or two-finger dice rings that can be transformed i n t o earrings. What’s your favorite stone? Opal. There are no two similar opal stones. Those from Ethiopia are orange-green-white-yellowish, and Australian ones are blue-green. It’s a magical, mesmerizing stone. Also I love bright gradient stones, and green ones like tsavorite. What are your favorite jewel brands? Of course I like classic historical brands: Cartier, Piaget, Boucheron, De Grisogono, Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels, but there are also many modern brands that have veryy creative designs. For example Akillis killis jewelry has very cool bullet and puzzle designs, Nadine Ghosn with her hamburger ring, Fernando Jorge, amazing high jewelry from
Giampiero Bodino and many others. What are the main trends in high jewelry now? Ear cuffs are still popular, jewelry bags, rings that are worn on phalanxes and
can be bent. Also wearing different earrings in different ears is quite trendy. You are a beautiful woman! How do you find time to stay fit? You know, I’ve always been sporty! When I was 12 I started to ride horses — I even have one in Ukraine. Also I was in Ukrainian national team on snowboarding, even went to the youth Olympic Games! Now if I have time I prefer doing yoga and p pilates.
“I NEED 1 YEAR TO RETURN A WOMAN 20 YEARS AGO” Elena Krumholz
Tell us about your NeoVital Institute. How did it all begin? I’ve been living in Germany since 1996. At first I worked in sales for medical and cosmetic products. In 2011 I decided to start my own business and founded the NeoVital Institute for Aesthetic Skin Treatments. I visited many places — Japan, Singapore and many other Asian countries to acquire knowledge and skills I needed for my practice. I spent 2 years in China, where I studied techniques of massage and acupuncture — it really helped me in my concept of quitting smoking. You have offices in many countries and most recently — in Monaco. Why here? In 2016 I visited Cote d’-Azur and understood that I want to settle here one day. It was one of the reasons why I opened a branch here. Though I arrive once a month, I am available 24/7 for my clients by phone and messengers. The most important thing in our work is to give a feeling of security. Everyone has only one face and it should be beautiful and bring joy.
What can modern aesthetic medicine give? Aesthetic medicine allows doing almost everything that was not available to our moms and grandmothers. Women have always aimed for beauty, but they didn’t have opportunity to prolong it. Now we have stronger weapons against aging than massages and creams. It’s the state of our mind, which allows us to prolong youth consciously, living a healthy lifestyle. And also we can use available medicines: hyaluronic acid, Biobotox, injections stimulating collagen production (Radiesse)… Inside, we are much younger than our mothers at our age. Women used to feel old at 50. For me it's just the beginning. What are 3 must-have cosmetic procedures? Of course it’s hyaluronic acid injections — as we age we lose our natural collagen and fat. Then, Plasmolifting — injections of platelet rich plasma, obtained by using the patient’s own blood. The concentration of growth hormones in it is 9 times higher than in blood. And Biobotex. Threadlifting is also quite popular nowadays. Are there celebs among your clients? Yes, there are many opera singers, models. Many models, by the way, come to me to shape their booties. I am very good at it.
Dress: Elena Bieber
Natural beauty is in trend, but you still have many clients. Why? Every woman should take care of herself. We go to a dentist, right? And to “make” a face, to return its young and mischievous expression
Looking at beautiful Elena Krumholz it’s hard to believe that she’s a grandmother of 4 grandchildren. She’s always been interested in ways to preserve youth and now she seems to know exactly how to stop time. 98
Everyone has only one face and it should be beautiful so that no one could notice our hard work — it’s a real art! I always say: I need half a year to return a woman 10 years ago and a year — to return her 20 years ago. What are your future plans? I try not to not miss seminars on new techniques and educate my doctors. Also in Cote d’-Azur I met three wonderful women who bring beauty to the
Photographer: Ekateryna Kurilovich
world: Yulia Berisset, Reda Karosiene and Natalia Mamchur, a former prima ballerina from Moulin Rouge. I realized that in show business beauty plays a very big role. I want to accompany women to beauty contests, and my biggest dream is to take part in it myself. And after attending the Mrs. Universe Beauty Competition, I realized that everything is possible — you just need to take heart and do it. 2017
ALIYA BAITUGAEVA super INSTA MOM of three “Never forget about inner harmony. You should be in harmony not only with members of your family, but also with yourself. Never force yourself. Live and enjoy your life.” 100
Aliya is a 29-year old charming mother of three from Kazakhstan who has the title of Insta Mum 2017 and almost 600k loyal followers. She is not only the best mum for her children and a popular blogger, but also a beautiful woman who manages to find time for herself: she goes to gym 3-4 times per week, reads psychology books and visits personal development trainings, as self-realization is very important for Aliya. She believes that only a successful and happy mother can be a great example for her kids. Once a week she and her husband try to “escape” for a couple of hours, leaving children with grandparents, as spending time together is also an important factor of happiness. Aliya has many dreams and plans: get her first million of followers, open a beauty salon, found a Mom Relief Fund for those who suffer domestic violence or are in challenging situation. She wants to see their children sporty and happy and never stop developing herself. Here are the recommendations of @Super.mamasita for all moms who don’t know how to find this harmony: 1. Every wife and mother should never forget that she is a woman at the first place. You must love, respect and take good care of yourself. It doesn’t mean that you have to be selfish, it just means that with your own example you show to your kids the importance of personal fulfillment. 2. It is very important to get your priorities straight. For example for me self-realization is on the first place. Then goes my family and after that financial well-being. Someone can say that it’s selfish. But I know that blogging is something that makes me happy and fills me with energy and positive emotions which I can share with my family. 3. You shouldn’t try to manage absolutely everything. At the end of the day you will be exhausted and not even close to doing really important things. So I recommend being quite easy-going to such things as washing-up, tidying, cooking, etc. Fortunately we live in the 21th century and there are many options we can use to help us in it.
“Every morning after my husband goes to work and my older children — to the kindergarten, I spend half an hour with myself — do make up and style my hair. It’s doesn’t take much to look good every day.”
SELF-MADE FASHION DESIGNER
“80% of all the work I do myself, cause if you want to have something done well — do it yourself! I cannot trust anyone even to purchase materials. Moreover I really enjoy choosing and purchasing fabrics for my dresses all over the world. My favorite are delicate lace and exclusive embroidered materials!”, — says Olesya.
ince her very childhood Olesya Malinskaya loved beautiful outfits and drew princesses in amazing dresses. Being a creative person she felt that fashion design is the sphere where she could express herself. All her first dresses that she made for herself were always in the limelight and everybody wanted to have them. At that moment Olesya realized that it was her calling. Having sold her expensive car, she invested money in this business and created her first collection of evening dresses. Since that risky adventure 7 years have passed. For several years Olesya had a boutique in the center of Moscow on Petrovka Street. And last year she opened a boutique and renamed the brand from Olesya Malinskaya to Mallini Couture. Miss Malinskaya is convinced that talent is given from God and education is not so important. Indeed, Elsa Schiaparelli did not know how to sew or draw, but she became a sensation and an icon of fashionable Paris! Jean Paul Gaultier is also a self-educated person; he always played against the rules and liked to break stereotypes. Olesya Malinskaya is a self made woman too. The secret of her success lies in her wisdom and constant self-development. “A modern woman should be able to remain feminine and flexible. With a man — fragile, sensual and playful. With children and parents — affectionate and caring. At work — strict and confident.” As a child, she did acrobatics and could easily do a gracious leg split. She also likes yoga and swimming. Despite her beautiful figure by nature, she goes to gym three times per week. “I love to perfect myself. And I believe that a woman, if beautiful outside, should be twice as beautiful inside!”
“We think that if every girl instead of buying a just another piece of clothes purchases our “Fashion saves babies!” T-shirt it will be amazing! This simple thing can really save some kid’s life!” 106
GIVE A LITTLE — HELP A LOT ELENA BESUGLAYA lena Besuglaya is a young and beautiful woman who has a very beautiful mission: she is longing to help sick children from Ukraine. This is her calling and she does everything possible to make life of these little kids easier. She and two her close friends Anna Vergelskaya and Yevgeniya Tulchevskaya are the founders, ideologists and inspirational figures of the “Mother's Heart Foundation”, based in Kyiv, Ukraine. Although their charity fund has been founded quite recently (almost 3 years ago), it has already been noticed by many volunteers, philanthropists and celebrities from all over the world who are ready to help seriously ill children and orphans. To bring such people closer together and to give them opportunity to help Elena organizes charity auctions which are always a great success! After the first event they managed to raise 339 thousand hryvnas and were able to buy the special equipment for a children’s department of the Institute of Neurosurgery, and after the second one they bought three rehabilitation devices to the orphanage! Elena is happy that they have already managed to help many kids and presented them a hope for a better and brighter future. She admits that one of the most memorable auction lots was a children’s embroidered shirt, signed by all the Presidents of Ukraine. Right now the girls are preparing for the new auction in February and also working at many other charitable projects. One of them is called “Fashion saves babies!” Elena and her friends are convinced that it important to help for your own soul, because indifference kills our hearts. That’s why her foundation is called “Mother's Heart” — she wants every girl to remember that there are no “someone else’s children” and recommends everyone think not only about outer but also inner beauty.
“We believe that the auction is one of the tools that can really helpchildrenastheparticipants purchase something that will always remind of someone’s saved life” — says Elena. 107

What exercises are extremely important for women? It all depends on a personâ€™s specific goals and needs. For example, if a woman wants to build strength she would have to go towards exercises such as the Deadlift, the Squat or the Bench Press. On the other hand, if a woman wants to work on endurance she would need to do exercises that require more repetitions per sets. What lifestyle changes should a girl do if she wants to lose weight? The first thing she needs to do is to have a structured diet plan. When I say diet plan I don't mean a super strict one where all she can eat is broccoli and boiled chicken. I always promote gradual dieting which is where a person gradually cuts out certain foods. Let's say a girl workouts hard and eats pretty well but just loves to eat cake every night before bedtime - 7 days a week. What I would do is tell her to eat cake just 6 days a week. Once she has done a month with success, I would tell her to cut back to 5 days a week and so on until she is able to have cake only 1-2 times per week. Another way could be to cut the portion by half and still eat cake every day â€“ it also will help her lose weight. Why is it dangerous to lose weight rapidly?
The first and most known reason is that when people lose weight rapidly they tend to gain it back fast because of all the cravings they accumulate over time by cutting too fast on food they enjoy normally. Another deeper reason is that your body and metabolism needs to readjust to diet changes. Going too fast from a high carbohydrate diet to a low carbohydrate diet can actually be dangerous and cause low blood sugar. And if a girl wants to gain weight?.. Same principle goes with gaining weight (muscle mass to be more precise). It is important to gradually increase the caloric intake from healthy sources and not take it as an excuse to eat more unhealthy food. Now it is popular to shape booties. What is the most important to achieve this goal? Yes, it became very popular through social media and workout videos. If you feel like your glutes are lacking in size, doing regularly heavy squats and deadlifts (reps ranging from 6-12 reps per sets) will definitely help you add some shape to them but you must keep in mind that genetics and body fat composition takes a huge part into this as well.
What supplements should we receive in winter to feel good? Regardless of the season it is important to have a good multivitamin especially if working out is part of the lifestyle. Another good supplement to take is fish oil (omega-3) which can help with maintaining a good cholesterol level. If we want to be more winter specific, I would say Vitamin C (to boost the immune system) and Vitamin D if not enough is taken from daily food intake (because there is less sun during the winter so our bodies produce less). Share with us a great workout complex for a good start of the day. So let's say you are in a hurry and it's the morning but you want to get moving! An easy way to get a quick session in to get your blood flow going is to do burpees but a modified version that will work your whole body all together. First, blast some good pumping music and then be ready to do some squats burpees push-ups. How to do it? Simple! When you do a burpee you have to go down and spread your legs apart and hands forward. Instead of going back up, do a push-up before and then jump back up. As you jump back up to put your hands in the air, squat first before going down and repeat the process. Have fun and kill it!
As the politicians are ﬁnding it increasingly en vogue to criticize globalism (“if you believe you're a citizen of the world, you're a citizen of nowhere” opined Theresa May recently), these investment managers are only proud to call themselves citizens of the world. The name of their new single family ofﬁce, APOLIS S.A.M., means just that — a global citizen.
CITIZENS EVERYWHERE OF
vgeny Denisenko, Ilya Gertsberg and Alexey Zarochentsev have recently moved to Monaco. Their collective background includes investment banking and research (Goldman Sachs, Lazard), accounting at “Big Four” and New York hedge funds. There is an ex-attorney and a CFA among them. But it is mostly years caring for family and sovereign wealth through both traded and private investments that define the team.
So how does “globalism” fit into investments? Evgeny Denisenko: the objective of our investment strategy — finding diversified income — became easier in the context of global portfolio.With interest rates still historically low, you have to go further afield to get decent yields in bonds and other fixed income instruments we own. We have all major geographies represented — US, Europe, LatAm, Asia, South Africa. There are strict country limits, however, and no position accounts for more than 3% of the portfolio. Also, despite higher yields found in countries like Argentina and Kazakhstan, this is by no means an emerging markets portfolio — our biggest allocation is the US
market, and we are continually impressed by the diversity and liquidity that can be found there.The US also has tax-advantaged instruments such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) whose objective is to maximize yield to investor. Speaking of taxes, Monaco is a perfect home base for yield-seeking investor — not having to worry about the local tax treatment of dividends, interest and short-term capital gains make portfolio manager’s job a lot easier. What do you think is a definition of a good portfolio manager? Evgeny Denisenko: 15 years ago, a good analyst or a portfolio manager was defined by his or her ability to uncover information. Today, it is the ability to sift through all the information that counts most. We continuously screen for attractive yield that does not come with a lot of risk attached. In doing so, we process a plenty of information, both from the macro-economic level and from ground-up research. As a starting point, we often run screens on Bloomberg terminal and compile lists of relevant ideas from investment banks and brokerages. It also helps to have a worldwide network of contacts among portfolio managers (and not only
them). With an overall plan for allocating assets in place, once a particular thesis is established (let’s say it is the price of oil bottoming out), we zoom in on each name on the target list — of which maybe one in twenty ultimately makes it to the portfolio. What is your approach to yield generation? Evgeny Denisenko: the concept of “yield” was well understood in our family — before the family office was established, we acquired and partially exited a portfolio of commercial real estate in Russia and Germany.So, as a natural development, we wanted to be in yield-oriented investments that are even more profitable, more diversified and more liquid, and we turned to public markets for that. This shift to investment management, coinciding with my move to Monaco, was how APOLIS came about. More recently, we expanded the concept of yield in yet another direction — why not lend to reputable developers, at much higher yield compared to quality bonds, and with real estate as a collateral? We have recently made one such deal with an established local developer and are evaluating several more across Europe.We also said to ourselves, let’s allocate some capital to the investment managers who are really good at this line of work (secured direct lending), provided that they operate in a niche where we have no presence. One such fund we invested in makes short-term bridge loans to individuals in the US secured by their real estate. Another one specializes in lending to middle-size companies in North America, where it achieves the kind of returns that are associated with much riskier junior lending and not the senior secured loans that the fund is underwriting. Have your team seen any interesting opportunities on the market recently? APOLIS team is proud of its ability to break the paradigms, just as the fund above that achieves atypical double digit returns as a senior lender. Speaking to them makes it seem as though the terms “global” and “opportunistic” are interchangeable. Most investors do not associate 30% annualized returns with bonds and other quasi-fixed income instruments– and yet that is what APOLIS was able to achieve on a number of its tradestimed right. These were bonds from top-quality issuers in Brazil, Turkey and Qatarpicked
off from those investors who got too nervous about country politics (which turned out to be “much ado about nothing” as far as markets were concerned), US alternative lenders bought at a steep discount to their accounting value and US bank loan portfolios bought cheaply as a result of an overhang from an earlier selloff in junk bonds. Luck also plays its role in the performance — a number of bonds were redeemed early and at a premium to market by the companies that issued them. However, without the rigorous selection process, such luck might not be possible. What are your investment goals? For all the exciting talk about their global, go-anywhere portfolio, the investment goal of APOLIS is pretty simple if not boring — to deliver consistent returns and stable income, and with low correlation to traditional stocks and bonds.The protection comes from owning bonds (and on rare occasions stocks) of quality companies that generate decent returns on capital and are not overburdened with debt (no C-rated bonds are acceptable). APOLIS will own bonds in countries like Russia, where economic or political conditions are less than ideal, if they are cheap enough and the companies can thrive in tough times. The team is also managing interest-rate Photographer: Ekateryna Kurilovich risk — the portfolio’s average duration is well under three years. Noting that the market is expensive, the managers are currently positioned for a downturn and took out some shorts in stocks. They are often cautious, opting for singles rather than “home runs”. What are your plans for future? APOLIS is now working to obtain a multi-family office license, so that other families and individuals in the Principality could gain access to its investment forte and the clubby private financing deals. There is a lot of cash sitting on the sidelines, and APOLIS team believes that it can be put to work generating consistent yield, without compromising on security. Looking forward, says Evgeny, the team’s success will lie in fighting complacency. “So often, investment managers get into a comfort zone and put themselves into a box. Our strategy is adaptable to all seasons and evolving. The search for yield is on. The world is big.” 2017
CHILD MODELING: TIPS FOR PARENTS
e see kids everywhere — billboards, catalogues, TV ads and product packages. And many of us think: “My kids could do even better!” Child modeling can really be a positive experience, developing confidence and self-esteem.
• • • • • • • • • •
Many children do enjoy being in the spotlight. They love being filmed and photographed and even trying on different outfits. So if it is about your child, you should try. We prepared some tips for you to know where to start.
No hats No makeup No pageant dresses No hair covering the eyes No closed eyes No drool or runny noses No “messy food face” photos or dirty bibs No naked “bathtub” shots No other children, people or pets in the photo No distracting backgrounds, such as piles of laundry, an unmade bed or a bright floral couch
1. Find a reputable agency
To find a good baby and child model agency, use social media and Google, and ask other mums about their experience. One of the biggest signs that an agency is conning you is if they ask you for money upfront. If an agency is trying to persuade you to pay any initial fees, especially if they’re costly, decline their offer and continue your search.
2. Don’t spend a fortune on photos
Now it’s time to start taking and sending photos. You absolutely do not need professional photos at this point, nor do you need a bunch of fancy clothes. Dress your child in something clean, casual and simple, preferably in plain color. Here is a short list of “no-no's”
You just need 3–4 clean shots: one closeup of your child's smiling face; another closeup with a thoughtful expression; one 3/4 body shot and one full-length body shot. In at least three of the four, your child should be looking directly into the camera.
3. No need for modeling classes
Your child does not need to take any kind of modeling classes whatsoever. It’s better to get your child a modeling agent, not modeling classes! She does not need classes on how to pose for a photographer. If she can follow directions (“hands in pockets… chin down… look up… smile!) it’s more than enough.
4. Get prepared…
There's always a fair bit of waiting around on a shoot while other children are styled and photographs taken. So take food and drink as well as books and games to keep your child occupied.
5. Off days
Sometimes children simply don't want to do what the photographer wants. Luckily, for really important shots such as magazine front covers, more than one child is booked so it takes the pressure off your baby. If she is having a bad day, she needs her parent to love her unconditionally.
6. Dealing with rejections
You just need 3-4 clean shots: one closeup of your child's smiling face; another closeup with a thoughtful expression; one 3/4 body shot and one full-length body shot. In at least three of the four, your child should be looking directly into the camera.
7. Have fun!
Rejection doesn't mean your child is not photogenic, and if you take things personally then child modeling is not for you. It can be hard to deal with, but it's just about getting the best shot that fits the client's brief. Companies set criteria for what they are looking for — ranging in age range, different races, ginger hair, blond hair, black hair or curly hair… If your little one is not what they are looking for, no matter how cute she is, they are not going to call you back.
The most important thing is that you and your kids have fun! Keep a good attitude and encourage them. If you get bored and impatient during the waiting, so will them. Bust out the activity bag, keep them alert (off the screens as much as possible because it breaks their focus), do interactive things to keep the awareness up, switch up activities every 15–30 minutes if it’s a long wait. Treat it like a wonderful adventure that they will remember forever!

S.S. DELPHINE the exquisite yacht that always makes an entrance!
. S. Delphine is one of the most unique yachts for charter in the Mediterranean fleet. She’s got a very interesting history with periods of flourishing and total decay. In 2015 new life blossomed on the yacht. Young passionate and enthusiastic crew were hired under the management of Cobrera Yacht Consulting Monaco, with dynamic Lionel Lebugle at the helm. Lionel, tell me about your company. COBRERA YACHT CONSULTING MONACO was created in 2011 as a management company taking care of a fleet of Monaco based yachts. We also organize charters and special events on yachts. We are located overlooking Port Hercule at 9 J. F. Kennedy Ave, 98000, Monaco. Is the management of SS Delphine rather challenging for you? Well, it’s been two years of intensive work with my team at the Naval Rocha Shipyard in Lisbon that has brought the ship to the highest level of maintenance needed to comply with the rules for passengers safety onboard. This month, November 2017, the SS Delphine will finalize the audit with RINA Classification Society and become ISM / ISPS / MLC compliant for a Passenger Ship. At what point did S. S. Delphine become a symbol of Monaco? On the 10th of September 2003, H.S.H Princess Stephanie of Monaco christened the SS Delphine after a three year and 45 Million Euro restoration in Bruges — Belgium. The classic beauty and sheer elegance of the SS Delphine embodies everything that Monaco holds dear.
Never once did it cross any owners’ mind — past and present, to change the perfectly functioning steam engines into diesel ones.
Her original owner, Horace Dodge of the Dodge automobile empire designed her unique quadrupleexpansion steam engines, which still work today.
What is the most interesting fact about this yacht? In 2007 she sailed to Montenegro to take a starring role in the Hollywood production of the movie The Brothers Bloom starring Rachel Weisz and Adrian Brody. Is it true that SS Delphine is the last and the largest active steam-driven yacht in the world? There are a few other steam yachts and ships around, but none in this class is still actively used as a yacht. Her original owner, Horace Dodge of the Dodge automobile empire designed her unique quadruple-expansion steam engines, which still work today. Were you thinking about replacing her steam engines with smaller diesel units? Never once did it cross any owners’ mind — past and present, to change the perfectly functioning steam engines into diesel ones. Dodge designed and built the steam engines himself and they're very environmentally friendly. Steam is a smooth sail, while diesel super yachts vibrate. What modern amenities and water toys can guests onboard enjoy? The ship was restored as close as possible to the original state and the Tiffany interior using documents from the 1920’s, visits to Maritime Museums and extensive historical research. Of
course all modern comforts were incorporated. Paintings in keeping with the 20’s style can be lowered at the push of a button to reveal a large TV in the salons. All cabins have flat screen televisions, DVD Players, music systems, safes, minibars, and are all interconnected by telephones throughout the ship. Watersports play a large part in the attraction of the ship and thus she carries wave runners, water-skiing equipment, waveboards, a slide, 2 kayaks, inflatable, towable donuts, wetsuits and fishing gear. There are also 2 inflatable tenders and 2 classic tenders capable of carrying up to 10 guests. Bono, Prince Albert of Monaco, Prince Hendri of Denmark were among the highest guests on board. What other celebs visited the yacht? She has hosted dignitaries including Formula One racing star Kimi Raikkonen, the French luxury-goods giant LVMH and the prestigious jewellery firm Van Cleef & Arpels. In December 2016 the Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa also visited the SS Delphine with a delegation of his ministers. What are your prospects for the upcoming season 2018? She will cruise the Mediterranean, Adriatic and possibly Aegean Sea. Further in time, we think about the Baltic and North European waters.
