Welcome to the Garden of Eden and enjoy your time with sublime SUPERMARTINA.
Here in Prague, it is raining cats and dogs as this article is being written. Is this the end of summer or is it the end of the world? No one dares go outside. And yet, there is still one think making us feel warm – the editorial with our SUPERMARTINA that is to be found in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar Turkey.
These pictures, probably taken during one of those hot summer days we also once enjoyed, look soft, charming, and they immediately carried our minds away. They made us stop and they made us stare. It was this sheer fascination one experiences when watching a cigarette smoke magically rising up, creating something visually so unique that the rest of the world simply does not exist anymore.
SUPERMARTINA turned into this strong, yet very feminine woman dressed to the nines, giving us – the visitors of her Garden of Eden – a hard time as her poker face will never let us know what she really thinks.
Have a look. Enjoy the beauty. Get carried away.

It is not always easy to make the picture perfect, but with a perfect model…
There is a tendency to think that two kinds of people walk the world: models and humans. Models, the perfect creatures who were born this way, this gorgeous way. Models, the perfect creatures who wake up in the morning looking glamorous and everything they touch turns into glitters. And due to this conviction, it is rather refreshing to find out that models are also humans. Like in case of SUPERMARTINA, who just appeared in Marie Claire Turkey. Yes, she was born gorgeous, but as she could realize during the shooting mentioned, not everything in her life necessarily turns into glitters…
“I arrived two hours late, because the driver overslept,” says SUPERMARTINA, “but at least everything was ready and we could start working immediately.” Then, after having her make-up and hair done, she finally slipped into the sky-high heels. “I was glad to know that I could not walk in them without having to pay for them.” As can be seen in the editorial, her hair had to fly. The fan was, however, blowing too much and the model’s eyes started watering. The make-up and the hair were in danger. “The fan was later replaced with a man sweeping with a polystyrene plate. After a couple of sweeps, the plate broke, and thus had to be replaced with another plate.” Luckily, it took only five minutes to shoot each outfit, and SUPERMARTINA with the rest of the crew had some time to chat over the dinner they brought. After that, she decided not to be driven home by car, even though the driver surprisingly managed to come on schedule this time, and rather walked with friends. “After all, my place was really round the corner,” she explains.
The shooting was done and so was our model who, at the end of the day, had to wash the hair and make-up off before going to bed. At the end of the day, even supermodels are humans.
