OGlam Inside Contest Winner Feb: Beatrice Serendipity

FEATURE INTERVIEW: Beatrice Serendipity – OGlam iNSIDE contest winner for February 2012.

Interview by Linda Reddevil

—————————————————————————————————————–

– What made you interested in modelling in sl, and what was your first step into becoming a model…

When I landed up in Secondlife, 3 years ago now, I had no idea how addictive dressing my avatar would be – even better than dressing up dolls as a little girl, with this fantastic array of wonderful creations to play with, and the almost limitless possibilities for transformation.

Quite early on I set up a little photo studio and started as a photographer. My photography helped me develop as a stylist, and it was when people started contacting me to ask for details of the outfits I was wearing in photos I began to think seriously about modeling.

My close friend and sl sister StarliteStarbrite Constellation encouraged me to go to the Models Workshop, which is an amazing resource for any model in SL. About a year ago I entered the Models Workshop Styling Challenge, and to my surprise I came second! From that, I decided to get some formal training and enrolled at iC Motions and the Miss Virtual World Modeling Academy, and I’ve been keeping pretty busy with blogging, shows, some print work, films and contests ever since.

What would you say your “signature” style is and what kind of style do you normally love to wear?

I think my style is pretty eclectic, I’m a bit of a fashion chameleon really – so it’s hard to say. I love wearing all sorts of styles – from vintage chic to avant garde, and I love experimenting with different looks. I hope that makes me versatile, rather than fickle!

How much of your RL style do you put into your modelling in sl? Is it similar, or is it very different?

How I style in SL is definitely driven by my personal tastes and RL influences – if I had the body and budget to dress like my avatar in RL you can bet I would! I’m a Londoner, and I’ve always been influenced by street fashion, and I think that comes through in my sl modelling.

What have been your biggest accomplishment so far in modelling in sl?

So many things have felt like big accomplishments – so far, for me, modelling has been a very rewarding, affirming experience, and I’m learning and growing all the time – I’ve been lucky to have won a few contests now, I’ve been in some exciting shows, and I’ve worked with some fabulous people, but I think my biggest sense of accomplishment comes when people tell me they appreciate my work – that’s what matters the most to me.

What are your goals for modelling? What would be the ultimate acheivement for you?

My goal is simply to be the best model I can be, work with the best designers and photographers, and just be fabulous! Oh, and I’d like to be on the front cover of LOTS of magazines ☺

The Grove Country Club Estates and Outrageous Glamour announce a cooperative endeavor.

The Grove Country Club Estates and Outrageous Glamour announce a cooperative endeavor.

Sometimes, magic happens. A collaboration of quality, careful planning, and an overall dedication to creative excellence peaks into an event that elevates what is already great into something truly unique.

The Grove Country Club Estates (The Grove), a private, country club themed residential community, and Outrageous Glamour (OGlam), a Second Life fashion and style marketing innovator, today announce a cooperative agreement signaling a move towards merging aspects of their organizations. Together The Grove and Oglam will provide the Second Life community the convenience of elegant, luxury living combined with a newly enhanced shopping experience in a collaboration unlike anything else in-world.

“About a year ago, I visited The Grove and since the very first moment I was amazed at what my eyes discovered. Since that day, I dreamed to be a part of this community, not only as a resident but as a partner. The community created by Umberto Giano speaks for itself, with it’s stunning beauty, and OGlam sees this collaboration as a bridge to the future,” states OGlam CEO, Matteo Bettencourt.

The OGlam organization plans to move its headquarters and newly renovated mall to a location adjacent to The Grove March 31st, and will, in essence, form a single living experience for residents and shoppers alike. The community will be connected for traveling convenience via roadways and waterways expanding the unique residential options offered by The Grove into a fully functioning community replete with activities for a wide range of tastes and interests.

Benefits include a soon-to-be-expanded shopping center and more open water for sailing for Grove residents, while The Grove provides OGlam with new options in terms of prims, space and venues for the innovative shows OGlam is known for producing.

Both groups retain full ownership of their respective interests and stress this is a cooperative agreement between The Grove and OGlam meant to provide benefits to both parties that come with proximity and an occasional sharing of resources. Both organizations will retain full autonomy as to sim ownership, resources, and staffing. For customers, clients and residents of The Grove and OGlam, this ensures a smooth transition and the continuation of excellent communication and customer service that both brands have come to represent through their dedication and strong work.

“I have respected Vixie and Matteo’s work ethic, as well as the quality they represent as a brand, for some time now,” says The Grove’s owner, Umberto Giano. “I am excited to work with them on joint projects in the future.”

The first such project has already been implemented as two of The Grove’s resident builders fabricate a new mall and runway theater on the OGlam sim creating a unique, upscale shopping experience in a stunning and relaxing environment. This brings new dimension within the Mediterranean themed community The Grove has come to represent and be known for amongst Second Life’s most discerning residents. “Umberto’s contributions to the SL community have been phenomenal, and OGlam is honored to join in this venture with The Grove,” says OGlam CMO, Vixie Rayna. “Our mutual respect and admiration make for a wonderfully supportive environment to create and work collaboratively. We know together great things are possible.”

Giano agrees, “We look forward to the synergy created by this cooperation and hope to continue to enhance the living experience for Second Life’s residents by bringing you unique experiences and locations to explore.”

Please be sure to stay on the look out for the upcoming details on the opening week calendar for community events that will allow you some of the first opportunities to experience this collaboration.

CSLTM AGENCY SPOTLIGHT: Outrageous Glamour by Matteo Bettencourt

Actually Oglam ( as we like to call ) is managed by another team .

Oglam is a agency consisting of an Academy and Mall, where we try to develop our vision and ideas of fashion, offering an excelent service not just for Designers but for Models and for a new generation of models that are giving the first steps

2. What is the main vision of the Agency and how do you think it is different to all the others?

SL is a place where many are innovated and give expressions to their dreams. Is hard do something diferent .

The inspirations to create OGlam comes from the needs to create something that gave back to the community, as well as inspiring it’s members to do better. As a models we are , Lulu Breuer COO , Vixie Rayna CMO and Myself CEO are passionate about our love of fashion. What better way to give back than to serve in this capacity and working in both directions facing both model and designer

The vision is create a community and co-operate between both worlds , designers and models and offer the SL community and public in general fashion shows and access to high quality brands.

3. Besides yourself, who are the other staff members at OG and what are their roles?

4. What are your goals and plans with the agency, and do you have any exciting future plans for OG? *Can talk about bday if you want there*

*laughs loudly*

Hmmmm…Well to be honest. Yes. Absolutely! We’re an agency and vibrant. In a short time, we have grown and we attribute this to our attention to detail and the quality of our service in the little things people take for granted. So of course, things will be changing a lot as we continue to grow and we constantly review ourselves and put things in place to benefit ourselves and our Patrons. Changes are definitely coming, taking into account real-life commitments which we plan around, off course.

 But, *chuckles* I will say this. We are currently reassessing the models in our agency, to ensure we have not only the best in styling, but the most professional and reliable bunch who share our standard of both service and quality. This enables us to serve as their advocates with confidence, as well as guarantee the very best to our clients. We will go to whatever lengths needed to keep things this area of our commitments intact.

Also we are planning a big suprise for a near future ! But well you all most have to wait to see it *laughs*
