Saskatoon has an disproportionate amount of beautiful women.When most people from more populated areas of the country think of the type of people that come from Saskatoon I am sure 'The Land of Beautiful Women' isn't the first descriptive phrase that would come to mind. But I've heard this term used to describe the women of Saskatoon and couldn't agree more. It is incredible how such a small pool of people could contain such a large amount of beauty in all shapes, sizes and races. This saying sparked me to start a series of photo shoots featuring the style of these intriguing women around the city. They are all beautiful, intelligent and independent, all on their own path and all from Saskatoon. If you're as much of a Gossip Girl geek as I am you have probably looked at the feature photo and realized what I was going for. I've been wanting to do a Gossip Girl inspired shoot for awhile and who better to do it with than Kristen Antunes, AKA Blair Waldorf. Can you see the resemblance? Both are glossy brown haired ladies with a natural appeal; she looking more like Blair than I Serena Vanderwoodsen. Blair always looks preppy and polished while Serena is edgy, dramatic and sure to be the centre of attention.
Kristen is a recent Pharmacy graduate from the University of Saskatchewan and a model; brains and beauty! Let's get to know her...
1. Your ideal Boyfriend's Closet would consist of the following type of wardrobe: Preppy and Polished, Scruffy and Laid Back, or Athletic Hip-Hop?
Preppy and Polished, but a little bit of laid back too. I think a good balance is key, but I definitely like to see a polished look often.
2. Blair and Chuck or Serena and Dan?
That's a tough one. I'd say Blair and Chuck, only because they were the most interesting to watch. A little drama is my guilty pleasure.
3. Favorite place in Saskatoon?
I'm gonna have to say Swank Shoe Lounge. Shoes are my weakness, and I love the warm greetings I get from the ladies who own the store. I always leave with a smile, and more importantly new shoes.
4. What is the best staple piece in your closet?
Right now, I'd say my staple piece is a pair of skinny black pants made by Wilfred. They seem to go with everything I have. I can either dress them up or dress them down. Not to mention they hug in all the right places.
5. If you're style was a candy what would it be?
If my style was a candy, it would be a Toberlone bar. Natural colors, with a bit of an edge but still put together.
6. What's your spiritanimal?
I'd have to say my spirit animal would be a Dolphin. They're intelligent, and always find time to enjoy themselves. Plus I'm envious anything that gets to live in the ocean.
