I always talked to seriously ill people, knowing that trouble could have been prevented — it is emotionally very difficult. You look into the eyes of 20 year-old girl diagnosed with AIDS, and You realize that common to have hygiene and preventive procedures were simply not available to her. At PSI volunteers there is a lot of work: they bring and distribute free condoms and drugs, advise people, allowing them to pass tests to detect HIV in time. You, too, have passed the test with the public. Yes, all in order to help people overcome the stereotypes and fears which often prevent them to go to the doctors. At the time I took the test a second time in his life. The first was four years before this, during our trip to Zimbabwe.

HOW TO CARE FOR FOOTWEAR
1. Always ventilate the shoes after walking in the rain or in the heat. If the shoes plucked water, disinfect them using antifungal shoe drying, and only then return them in the closet.
2. Wipe leather shoes with a soft cloth and suede — with a stiff brush. The more dust and dirt remain on the shoe, the more difficult they will be removed and the greater the risk of cracks and stains.
3. Take care of the shoe is important not only from outside but also from within, filled with cedar chips inside a closed shoe pads absorb excess moisture and prevent odor.
HOW TO KEEP JEWELRY?
Keep bracelets strung with vertical uprights. Massive bracelets — on holders for paper towels, and more delicate — legged special holders for jewelry. Turn cork board in the window. Pusety can plug directly into the surface of the cork (it only do the holes in advance not to bend them). Necklace and long earrings are best hung on hooks of various sizes to simulate artistic disorder. But do not get carried away — several necklaces on one hook is required to get confused.
Spoon rings, earrings and brooches in special trays or individual bowls. And arrange in several places in the apartment, where we often take off jewelry and forget about them: in the bathroom, hallway and kitchen. By the way, these bowls can look at flea markets and collect the whole collection.
Fight with the chaos. Disorderly pile shorts and thong only increase the level of stress of the morning. Quick solution — delimiter-Net, in which each couple will be kept separate.
Lay bras by color. Divide them into white, beige, black and color and store laid out a cup to a cup or in a special box with dividers.
Keep the kits separately. Take a nice box that you do not wear it every day — it will not only make the process of collecting on special occasions more solemn, but also protect precious lace and delicate silk.
In the wardrobe JERSEY?
1 Purchase suspended shelves — they are much more mobile and diverse than landlines. If the depth allows, make a wardrobe of two-stage — then the summer knitwear can be pulled back, and in winter sometimes change departments.
2 Discard the vacuum bags. Of course, if you blow enough air are occupied sweaters and blouses irrelevant place reduced at times, but in this case folds threatening to stay on them forever.
3 Divide the things with long and short sleeves. This will reduce the time to collect and navigate the weather will also become easier. Plus on the upper shelves of boxes stacked in the soft stuff to carry torye less frequently.

4 sexy image Selma
Quiet passages in the maze of the famous Hotel Bel-Ain in the warm twinkling lights, the scent of jasmine wrapped in swaddling clothes, filling the fresh flowering cool California night in shimmering soft jazz tunes in a low voice hubbub of voices — clearly audible clatter of confident black boats Sergio Rossi. Gorgeous woman that owns the sonorous steps urgently need a hot drink, preferably with a couple of drops of alcohol. It was a long hard day for Selma Hayek.
After 12 hours of shooting at two sites finally ended her photo shoot in the legendary designer Tony Dyuketga home in Beverly Hills. When I arrived there for the interview, Hayek greeted me like an old friend. Shivering in bathrobe and flip flops, she was holding a napkin rolled out a bag of nuts and dried fruit — simple snack, the crew left the team at the request of her press agent. Despite the cold, hunger, and spent a double shift in her behavior no hint of fatigue. She cheerfully offered to go somewhere nice place to roll warming and chat.
Saturday evening, half past nine — at Los Angeles residents to stay at home at this time is clearly not accepted. Search for a quiet table turns into an odyssey even for superstars. How unfortunate refugees from the fork-Pass and velvet ropes, we Selma moved from one institution to another. Complementing our grief command bodyguard Jerry, big, once worn by certain police badge. His Mexican shirt with large pockets dangerously bristling right side of the waist.
Finally, we find shelter in the restaurant Bel-Air: glass walls, dim lights. Ordered by a hot toddy — here it is made from rye whiskey and served in cognac glasses — and talked about «Grown Ups 2», the premiere of the summer, where Selma is playing with his close friend Adam Sandler. «What he has created is more than a production company, it’s a lifestyle, a family» — says Hayek. Tonight nominee for «Oscar» s mother also, a television and film producer, social activist and a major supplier of custom-production-byoti looks amazing. Makeup, stayed with a photo shoot, a gold necklace Hermes, a black silk blouse, jeans, Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane … But the origin of suede jacket is difficult to determine. «I’m not a fan of brands», — says the actress. In her half meters height, Lebanese and Mexican blood, and in addition, it is known around the world thanks to a charming accent, explosive temperament and passionate) marriage with the French fashion tycoon Francois-Henri Pinault, the father of her daughter Valentina. «I have taste, I can create a harmonious way, but most of these efforts, for my husband. I want to be nice to him. «
The conversation turns to the topic Fund Chime for Change (www. Chimeforchange.org), organized by Gucci. It uses the influence of Hollywood and the Internet to help disadvantaged social rights of girls and women around the world. Those who support the fund through their own media channels to help and inform people and raise funds. Hayek stands at the head of the movement, along with Beyonce and Gucci creative director Frida Dzhashpshi. To explain why this fund is so necessary, the actress tells an episode from his childhood, which made a strong impression on her. «I went to bio-eight, Dad and I were walking and suddenly saw a man who was beating a woman. Dad wanted to protect her, and … «
Fire alarm. Screaming siren. Flashing signal lights. Rises excited hubbub. Quiet mechanical voice asked to leave the premises immediately. Hayek gimlet me with his big brown eyes and bangs with mock severity namaniyuorennym fingernail on the table. «I am not moving this!» — She says flatly. We have not moved — was a false alarm. Again, waiters circled, and again poured unobtrusive music to the sound of heavy knives and forks.
Hayek returned to the story of how once many years ago with his father walked along the beach in his native town Koattsa- koalkos («the place where the snake hides»), the State of Veracruz, Mexico. They witnessed a disgusting domestic quarrel. «My father intervened to help the woman, and she snapped at him! The woman was bleeding, her living space was not, but my dad lupila fists and shouted, «Get off my man! Let beats me, if he wants to! «
«This scene is very influenced me — says Hayek. — Why did the woman behaved? How to come to this? After all, it is devoid of any logic! That is why it is so important what do Chime for Change, — above all, they defend the rights of girls and women. Many places in the world still believe that a woman — a man of second grade, deprived of the most basic rights. From whatever injustice you may have encountered, among the people of any country, race or culture-always turns out that the woman in this situation even worse. If we treat domestic violence as something normal, the problem will grow like a snowball. Children grow up with confidence that conflicts can be solved with violence. Or humiliate someone — in the order of things. And all because of that … «
Before us rises administrator. He was very sorry, but the company of ten people going to take a table right behind us. «It may be noisy,» — he gently suggests, pointing to the noisy crowd of twentysomethings with cameras at the ready, huddled in the doorway. The waiter to carry our drinks to another table.
Selma ponders order. «This winter, I sat down on the foundation and now that’s paying the price,» — the recognition, often accompanied by reading the menu. We were transplanted at a table in the corner. The hall slowly filled with the fashion crowd, who came for a late dinner, and becomes noisy. Throughout the evening, as we speak, the couple at the next table struggled looks away — in Beverly Hills to stare at the star sitting in front, then put himself slob tourists, we stopped for a day in the country of dreams.
We ordered the tuna tartare, lettuce and cabbage kale for two plus a toddy in the second round. Hayek takes a glass of cognac and admires tiny halves of lemon floating in amber drink warming.
«My life is about to change — dramatic whispers Hayek, if the secret is divided into an old friend. — Valentina five. And now I propose things that I could only dream of, the roles and did not expect to receive. But I can not be sure, since such projects make a long time away from home. Before I took only a small role to return immediately after the shooting to the family — it is for me in the first place. And now I’m at a crossroads, because life offers me an opportunity that will require a lot more from me. Frankly, I panic at the thought that I must make a decision. » She takes a swig. «Although I really would have panicked if I did not have the support of her husband. He says, «Come on, do it, you deserve it. And I deserve to see you on the screen. Everything deserve to know what you’re capable of. You owe it to myself. «
She leaned back in his chair and grinned — woman, quite pleased with herself and calmly make their own contradictions. «The first thing I said when Francois made me an offer bio:» I did not move to Paris! «I worked long and hard to build itself. I already had my own life and my world. I did not want to be the woman that throws everything and moves to another country to become someone else. Then I asked him: «What do we do?» Francois looked at me and said, «I do not know. We live day by day. «
Our tuna tartare — three small pieces, wrapped in seaweed. Selma tried on them. Finally, choose the one on the left, and is just about to take a bite of it when it pops up an unpleasant topic nomination on MTV Movie Awards. Hayek, nominated as the best actress for the role of the Latin American mafia boss in last year’s drama Oliver Stone’s «particularly dangerous.»
The corners of her full lips sink, eyes flashing lights. This is serious. She waves her expressive piece of tuna: «When they told me I can not win, I had to record a video with the thanksgiving speech. But the thing is that this particular nomination is not even included in the TV version! If Latinos are not worthy of their time, why this award must be worthy of my? I think we deserve more, so I told them that this is not going to participate. «
The waiter comes and asks what we want for dessert. Hayek orders a decaf coffee and casually hinted that he was going to shoot a movie. «I think that at one time I was engaged in directing at full strength, was a big mistake. So soon, perhaps, I will devote myself is this, — says Selma. — You know, shooting the movie, I feel the same as drawing a picture: just do not notice anything around. In these moments I feel absolute happiness and can completely isolate themselves from the world. And while energy is very special. «
Whoever wins in Cannes — Thai video artist, Austrian philosopher and American classic, his name and his film will be on hearing the whole year, until the next festival. Winner of «Golden Palm» — it’s more than a trend in the movie; often it is a way of explaining the world in which we live today.
The winner of this year Abdelatif Keshish born in Tunisia, in the age of six with his parents moved to France, and his first film shot in the forties. About the fore much later, in 2007, after the painting «Couscous and red mullet» — about the same emigrant dismissed dockworkers who tries to open his own restaurant. Then there was the «Black Venus» — a three-hour biography of an African woman really existed, which in the 19th century showed in European circuses. Many expected the continuation keshish multicultural theme, but it was more complicated.
«Blue — the warmest color» (to rent the film will be titled «The History of Adele») — five years in the life of a girl who loves another girl finishes school, and then she became a teacher. The basis of the script was the comic Julie Maro, which added Keshish other storylines and their own observations of life (as Luchino Visconti once treated with the original, only in his case, not graphic, and literary — Thomas Mann and Dostoevsky).
Adele (and we along with it) is in a world where the boundaries of the floor easier to overcome than social differences: the heroine is too easy for his girlfriend, artist, eighteen is not so noticeable, but after twenty already evident. In the final, Adel goes into the unknown, the French title is subtitled «Chapters 1 and 2», and therefore he Keshish and critics have compared it with Antoine Doinel — Through character Truffaut films that first appears on the screen of fourteen. If the movie is able to replace a life, it is — the same case. But most importantly, with any voltage Keshish, Cannes Film Festival, and now the whole world stare into the face of the young Adele: Who is she, a modern woman, what a woman do? This recognition of women, attention to it (not arrogant, not defining masculine relationship between the two girls as a regular indulgence), the desire to understand — the result of a century of emancipation; perhaps the beginning of the new, more respectful relationships between the sexes.
Every once in Cannes amazed how they do it? The most radical and the most conservative film festival awards, which is reminiscent of the classics (Visconti, Truffaut), continues the tradition, but says a new word — loud and clear to the whole world.
APARTMENT NICOLAS Dezhen
The courtyard of the house where the apartment is art director for Givenchy Nicolas Dezhen makeup, immersed in greenery and quiet. You stand at the door and do not believe that just around the corner noisy pulsing artery of 11 districts, the street Oberkampf. Nicolas neat white door opens and reading in my eyes a dumb question, said: «I’ve lived here for six years and never ceases to amaze the duality of the area. Here is full of trendy places with crowds of young people, but only zavernesh the corner, immediately find yourself in another world. The noise dies down, and all around are familiar — neighbors, the grocer, the owner of a small cafe … It is impossible to feel lonely. «
Climbing the stairs to the living floor (which in Europe is called first), you find yourself in a large office connected to the living room. From above it pours a wonderful light, although the weather is rainy today. It turns out that the ceiling of the second floor of this duplex apartment carved dormers. «The light is very important to me — says Nicolas. — Here I am working on paintings and collections: all laid out on the floor and give yourself time to think. » The main place in the office is a large wooden table — a former dining — Dezhen inherited from his father. On the table between the monitor and books, sprawled master’s pet cat Romeo. Displeased glance at the intruders, he lazily turns to a wide round window, like a giant porthole cruise liner.
The apartment — a real bachelor den, where everything has to in order to bury his head in the business, and then have fun all night. «Paris — the perfect place to do work, answer calls, go to meetings — confirms Nicolas. — When I get bored, I’m leaving for the country house. Perhaps on a future collection of make-up, I will work there. A change of scenery always inspires me to create something new. » As Paris is no longer a source of ideas? Quite the contrary: «I am inspired by the city nightlife. I walk along the quays, gaze at the dark silhouettes of buildings: the Conciergerie, the Grand Palais. At dusk, it looks differently, «- says Nicolas. And what does the art director of Givenchy Makeup in his spare time? «I sleep! — Without the slightest hesitation he replies. — I go to museums. Recently I was in Orsay: Impressionists like. Since a ban on smoking in public places, I often began to call friends to visit. » Please describe the perfect party. «More champagne, fifty guests, this bustling holiday, which is not seen these walls.»
«My apartment is not random things. Looking at all these pictures, statues and pictures, I remember friends and loved ones, joyful and sad moments of the past. «
Laconic black and white interior of the apartment is a perfect backdrop for the numerous details: paintings, sculptures, figurines, books. «I am surrounded by only those things that I love. No chance, «- says Nicolas. Disbelief showing on Hippo with wings «flutter» on the wall above the fireplace. «Oh, it — laughing Dezhen — I’m a big fan of the hippo. I have a lot of them: large, small, plastic, bronze, black, purple … For me, hippos are associated with reliability, honesty. Though, I admit, I was kind of a lot of fun. «
Books around — entirely on art, fashion and make-up (in plain lie albums British photographer Rankin). The paintings on the walls — a trendy modern artists: Eric Raspaud, Markus Nine, Francoise Nilly. Wait a minute, man’s face on the canvas of the French artist, famous for its vivid portraits of Barack Obama, and Marilyn Monroe, written by a palette knife seem familiar to me. So there is — it is Nicolas! «I have long dreamed of a collaboration with Francoise — says Dezhen. -And While working on a collection of makeup Givenchy Arty Colors in 2007 led talks with her about the campaign. I wanted her to have represented our model in her usual manner. Not grown together. But then she called and offered to write my portrait. I was flattered, and of course I agreed. The presentation of the collection, we held in the gallery, which exhibited her works, including this one. A little later I bought the painting and hung it in a prominent place. » Pay attention to the black textured fabric of the neighborhood. It turns out, is a masterpiece of hand Dezhen where instead of paint used mascara, the one that is contained in bottles Givenchy. Plastic buckets filled with a black viscous substance with a recognizable aroma, are right there. «I’m not an artist, my profession — to develop cosmetics, so I know by heart all the textures — says Nicolas. — I just see them in a different way, not only in the tubes, but also on the canvas. «
That’s the whole Dezhen — it allows you to come up with a special vision of the round brush, multicolored mosaic of shadows, translucent powder and lipsticks ideal formula. He succeeds in everything he undertakes, both in the development of new makeup collection for Givenchy, and to work with his muse and the «guardian angel» Mariacarla Boscono and running your own farm, and it seems that even in art. How it all fails? «The secret is simple: I love this apartment, — says Dezhen. — She inspires me. When I cease to feel comfortable here, be sure to make repairs and change everything, but I can say with confidence: Now this space is perfect. «
