Farewell ...

Due to lack of free time I seem to be having these days, I just can't keep up with two blogs anymore 
so I am going to stop writing The Orange Book. 

It has been so much fun but I will continue to share my love for fashion over at my other blog, 

Stay fashionably fabulous and I look forward to seeing you all over at My First Little Place ; )

Supermodel - Carla Bruni

This Italian model with her chiseled cheekbones, feline like eyes and pouty lips was a must have to all the top fashion designers. She began her modelling career in 1987 and by the 1990's, she became one of the top 20 highest paid models.

Carla Bruni














In 1997, Carla quit the world of fashion to dedicate her life to her music. She has released 3 albums in total and in my opinion, her music is truly beautiful. She did well here!

After a string of very public relationships (Mick Jagger, Vincent Perez and Eric Clapton to name a few), life changed in 2008 when Carla married French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

In October last year Carla gave birth to her first child, baby girl Giulia.

Today apart form being mum and being France's First Lady, she is involved in a number of charities and started her own Foundation Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to promote awareness of the protection of mothers and children against HIV.

Supermodel - Niki Taylor

Known as the all American sweetheart of modelling, she first appeared on the cover of Seventeen magazine at the age of 14 and followed that with a Vogue cover at the young age of 15!

Whilst she appeared in the pages of all the leading magazine's and walking the designer runways, she is probably most famously known for her work with Sports Illustrated.

Niki Taylor










Niki's life has faced quite a few tragedies. 
Firstly in 1995, Niki's sister Krissy died of an asthma attack. I still remember hearing on Entertainment Tonight the chilling 911 phone call that Niki made when she found her sister.


Then in 2001, Niki was involved in a serious car accident that left her in critical condition. 
Her internal injuries were so severe she had 56 operations and intense physical therapy.

Niki married her first husband linebacker Matt Martinez in 1994 and they had twin sons Jake and Hunter. Following their divorce less than 2 years later, Niki started a relationship with Keith Urban. 
However in 2004 they split.

Happily in 2006 married Nascar driver Burney Lamar. They have 2 children together, daughter 3 year old Ciel Taylor Lamar and last year another son, Rex Harrison Lamar.

This year Niki will be hosting her own TV show "Having It All"

I think Niki still looks amazing, as fresh faced as that young model who was on Seventeen magazine. She's overcome her life challenges and still looks super beautiful.
