Our fans know ...Ooh La Frou Frou is all about bringing you glamour.
We love creating a lush and exciting world for you to slip into,
whether it's with our glitter-and-crystal embellished cards
that feature the eight fun and glamorous illustrated girls ...
or here at the card line's fun and sumptuous weekly blog,
where we step into the fantasy city adventures
of the girls of the Ooh La Frou Frou Collection.
we got a first glimpse of
the Dior-inspired bedroom for
Ooh La Frou Frou girl Hope ...
and some of you mentioned that you
took away some of the ideas from Hope's design
for your own glamorous bedrooms.
So perfectly fun ...
especially if you're like Hope and love to visit
beautiful luxurious boutiques ...
just to soak in the beauty ...
we'll leave Hope and her new bedroom
in her fantasy upper-east-side apartment building
and head a few blocks south
to the beautiful St. Regis Hotel.
If we were to walk through the St. Regis' dramatic doors ...
and step into the lobby ...
... we just may hear the elevator ping
and see Ooh La Frou Frou's supermodel, Cherie,
stepping out and walking quickly past us to flag a cab ...
Let's follow her as she gets heads to a glamorous photoshoot ...
As Cherie's taxi picks her up, we thought we'd
show you a little map of her neighborhood.
The St. Regis is right at 55th Street and Fifth Avenue,
down in the lower right hand corner of our map.
You can see how she could just walk out her door,
take a stroll down Fifth Avenue
and have fabulous shops at her fingertips ...
Cherie represents the supermodel in all of us ...
you know what we mean ...
the glamorous woman in us that appears on the days
when our hair is perfect and we're hearing
our own little theme song in our mind?
After all, we are the star of our own life movie ...
shouldn't we imagine the most glamorous of scenes?

Cherie is whisked away into make-up and
spends the day in various poses for the photoshoot.
She is then made "bigger than life" for the fantasy magazine pages.
You may have seen photos of the positively
ethereal Elie Saab Fall 2011 Haute Couture Collection ...
it sparkles as if the pieces are lit.
These gowns are pure confection and the stuff of dreams,
so they were just perfect for a Cherie photoshoot.
Elie Saab drew his inspiration for this collection
from the sun's rays, how the city's skyscrapers
are clad in its shimmering reflection.
Below is the result of Cherie's fantasy
Ooh La Frou Frou photoshoot.
She is illustrated bigger than life in a handful of the
Elie Saab gowns
walking along the rooftops,
with her arms wrapped around the sparkling city that she loves.
We thought you might like to watch the Elie Saab video
of the Haute Couture Fall 2011 Collection
to see if you can identify the dresses that Cherie
posed in ....
Have a perfectly lovely week, darlings ...
from myself, Sandy, the artist of Ooh La Frou Frou,
and all eight of our glamorous illustrated girls! xo
