Top Leading # 1 Face/body painter Ms Lucinda  Audian known by many as  La Rich
1)Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?


My name is Lucinda Audain better known as, La Rich the Artist. Born and raised in St. Maarten. I am a painter(Face&Bodypainter), spoken word poet and event/stage designer. Most people have come to know me for my face and body art. But for the last year I have been doing more stage and event decor/designing for Artemia an event and d├ęcor company, which i work for.

With my degree in business management I have been focusing a lot on Art management seeing that it is needed in our community. 
  


2)What 2 words best describe you as a person?

Resilient and progressive 



3)Describe your fashion sense?

I have to laugh at that one. My fashion sense is comfortable. I am always covered in paint. I love urban bohemian swag but still love a black cocktail dress when necessary.


4)There are many doing what your doing what makes you different from all the rest?

I do a little of everything being multi talented it may seem like a lot to many but I am an artist and creating is what I do no matter if i am using words, paint or decor to captivate my audience. To me it’s all the same, just different tools, mediums and disciplines. It’s easy for me to transition from one to the next and even fusion several different skills together. I believe this gives me a bit of an edge because one never really knows what I will come with next and keeps life exciting. 



5)Tell us how to started then to this very date?

Being an artist has always been my ambition. I can remember from the age of 6 years I use to steal tubes of paint from my uncle and my moms boyfriend at the time. 
And use them to paint abstract images of what I thought were reality. Through the years I became more comfortable with drawing and painting. I took art classes at the St. Maarten Academy during my high school years and also took private lessons from Ruby Bute. I was known in my teenage years for creating portraits and landscapes, which were popular at the various exhibitions, I was featured in.

During my time away at college I didn’t do much painting because of time restraints. It was when I completed my studies i started painting again and La Rich became my artist name and it took off from there and hasn’t stopped since

.

6)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?

Right now i am wearing Rihanna that scent is vexon sexy :)! lol 


7)What do you love most about your job?

That it’s never the same. Every day is a new adventure. I am not one to be confined to routines.



8)How can someone from the other side of the world learn more about you are even contact you?

My facebook page is very informative. I try to keep it up to date with new developments, shows, and new art work.www.facebook.com/LaRichArts & www.facebook.com/funtopiasxm 


9)When not working what do you love doing?

I love to cook for friends and loved ones. Love traveling site seeing. Most of my down time I spend on the beach just thinking, meditating.
  

10)What do you think of the Fashion Police News Blog?

I love it. I think it’s a great avenue to give insight on local artists and what’s going on in the fashion and art world.  

11)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?

Well I think that’s and art form in its self and I believe once you have mastered the art doesn't matter if you are a man or woman it’s a gift and  I applaud those men that take their time to teach women to perfect their walk.
  

12)What advice do you have for others looking to walk into your footsteps?

Consistency is the key to success. There are many people out there with the same hopes and dreams and aspirations what sets one from everyone else is your passion and drive and being consistent. Nothing worth having comes easy. 

13)Who are your 3 best friends you would ride and die for?

OMG! You sending me to get shoot! I have so many friends I hold dear to my heart many persons that have been there for me. Many I don’t see or speak to on a daily basis but they are always on my mind.  They know who they are. But my Main ROD has to be my mom. Shirley Richardson They broke they mole when they made that one
Please email.........larich84@gmail.com for all bookings

14)What music would have you running to the dance floor to shake that booty?

Not much of a booty shaker! I am the tipsy 2step chick that likes being in the center of the dance floor. But for sure Drake start it from the bottom now we here!!!!! Some Konshen 

15)What makes a good and bad body painter?

Good Body painters’ don’t just paint a body they connect with their canvas and create magic. There is nothing more fore filling when you capture some essence of that person’s character in your art on their body. Be it for a personal shoot or a event they would rock that painting because it’s them.

It’s hard to say what is a bad body painter but i guess if your line work is isn’t on point and you don’t understand colors and skins tones it can go totally wrong. 


16)If you was given 1 ticket to fly any where in the world where would you go and why?

Hollywood BABY! I want to get into the movies, special effects make up and all that crazy stuff. 


17)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare for them?

Well I ask prior to your arrival if you're a vegetarian or not. If you aren’t I would make my mouth watering lasagna with some home made garlic bread and a fresh Cesar salad.   

18)Where do you see yourself in 7 years time?
Touring the world sharing my art. Having art shows or teaching workshop inspiring the world.


19)What do you love most about being a body painter?

Connecting with new people. Forming new relationships making magical memories 

20)What are 4 things women do that makes you mad?

Hmmmm!! When a woman that is too picky or too loud or super selfish don’t like it. 


21)If you had the chance to do body painting on 3 people of your choice on the island who would it be and why?
I would love to body paint 


Nicole de Weever because I would love to see my art in beautiful dance form
Clara Reyes because there is so much of her energy that will bring out a great piece
Ruby Bute because she has grace that will surely bring out something amazing

Lol! My whole sale stock of face and body paint supplies that will be hitting the market soon. I live and breath that stuff J




24)If you was not to be a body painter what would you then be doing?

Seeing that body painting is one of my skills. I would probably be writing kids books or poetry. I love that but I don’t have the time to invest into it as I would like.

Ms Trevicia Adams known as"Barbie"Speaks To The #1 Blog In London Town

Ms Trevicia Adams also known as "Barbie"
1)Please tell us who you are for for those not familiar with you?

I am Trevicia Adams affectionately known as Barbie from the beautiful twin island federation of St. Kitts and Nevis 
2)What 3 words best describe you as a person? Shy, Reserved and humble 3)Describe your fashion sense? I am a conservative dresser. I do not lean to 'what's in style" or the trends. I tend to choose clothing that I can mix and wear and what looks nice and classy.
4)What perfume are you wearing as we speak? Jordin Sparks 'because of you ' perfume
5)What are 4 things men do that makes you mad? Hahaha I hate... hate it...absolutely hate it when men are possessive; when they are ignorant; when they are not goal oriented and when they feel your entire life should revolve around them and their needs.
6)Do you think your a true representation of a  today's woman if yes/no why? Of course I do think I am a true representation of today's woman. I am a well rounded young lady with a promising future but at the same time i am a humble person. I believe that you should always remain approachable and open minded to the people around you. I am willing to attempt tasks that in earlier times would be seen as a "man's" job.
  7)What made you decide to enter Ms Culturama pageant? I am definately a lover of Pageantry. I was asked to enter the pageant by the national Carnival Committee after placing 1st Runner up in our National Pageant in 2011. It was really my duty, a contractual agreement to represent my country in that specific pageant.
8)Did you know you was going to win after seeing the contestants? Not at all! I do not underestimate my competition. From experience, I have learnt that you can not and you should not look at the physical appearance or contestants off-stage disposition to qualify them as competition. You may think someone does not have the potential to win just by looking at their outer appearance and on the night of the pageant that person is normally the one that blows everyone away. My sister often says some contestants intentionally hide their true potential until the night of the pageant.
9)What did you think won the hearts of the judges about you? I think my smile won them over... lol just kidding . I think my hard work and dedication showed through my performance. I had personality, grace and charm. Preparations were great and that gave me confidence.
10)What are 4 secrets to winning a crown? Ever so often when a young lady enters a pageant her ultimate goal is TO WIN but for me its about having fun, enjoying the experience, meeting other gorgeous young ladies and most importantly enjoying what i love best ( being on stage). Secretly, you know I want to win...hehhehe. To be honest, it has always been my sister's intention and mine also to enter Miss World or Miss Universe...so these shows over the years were stepping stones towards that goal. 
11)Who are your 4 best friends you would ride and die for? This is a tough question as i have very few close friends so i would have to say not best friends but family members. My mother who is my best friend, Clarissa Harris, Felicia Silcott and of course my sister Janet Johnson.
12)What music would have you running to the dance floor to shake your booty? I love to be on the dance floor and having a great time so any genre of music will definitely have me bumping. However, dancehall and reggae are at the top of the list. Lately, I've been loving African music especially that song Azonto 
13)What do you think about the Fashion Police News Blog? I love fashion police even though I've recently being introduced to it. I love how diverse it is in terms of having musicians, models and pageant "fanatics" like myself.
14)What do you think about men who teach women to walk? I am accustomed to having a male modelling coach that it seems normal to me now lol. At first I was like others who would say a male would never know more about modelling than a female. However, after being exposed to my cousin, Jason Amory who is a male modelling coach here in St Kitts, that changed my mind. I've often compared him to international male model coaches and I highly rate him.
15)What advice do you have for other young ladies looking to enter pageants? GO AT IT! It is a once in a life time opportunity that will open many doors for you as an individual. In addition, you will see your self developing into a more mature and self confident young lady. Many life skills are learnt by entering pageants: time management, listening skills, self esteem building, etc.
16)If you was to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear? Ooooh this is a tough question. So many choices but i would say anything from Versace or Calvin Klein.
17)If you was given 1 ticket to fly any where in the caribbean where would you go and why? I would go to Trinidad and Tobago to experience their rich culture: their carnival and have that real time opportunity to see their folk dances in person.
18)Where do you see yourself in 7 years time? In 7 years I see myself being a Human Resources professional , starting my family and of course helping another pageant fanatic in the world of pageantry and modelling. 19)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare them? I would prepare them my favorit meal of rice and peas, baked chicken, macaroni pie and potato salad. I would also offer them a glass of my mother's sweet lemonade.
20)If the fashion police was to be a fly on the wall in your bedroom what would they be shocked to see?  My make up collection which I scarcely wear lol
21)What would you say is your best assets? That would have to be my smile and my eyes.
22)Tell us how do you prepare for a pageant? I normally don't have much time preparing for pageants and that is the biggest disadvantage for me. When I do have time I normally plan my segments carefully. I first have to prepare a budget segment by segment, then contact each person for the segments and then practice begins once all that is finalised.
23)After winning this pageant have it open doors for you? Definately! I entered the Miss Caribbean World pageant and have another big upcoming pageant that i hope Fashion police bloggers will be following. 
24)What do you love doing when your free? SLEEPING, I am normally on the go so i always use my spare time to sleep. My sister often says she thinks its a medical problem...lol
