Jade Blossom, having been deliberately captured in a raid upon her village because the beauty of this lotus flower was evident, even under the many layers of mud upon her person. She was being led away into the servitude of concubinage. Jade Blossom was singled out, by the highest ranking Samurai, in all of China, bathed, massaged with perfumed oils, and dressed as if she was an imperial consort, to be given as a gift to the Shogun! To honor the Shogun and to adorn her beauty, she was given an exquisite suite of jewels to wear, for her presentation, by the crown jeweler to the imperial family, Chop Zuey, named The Pagoda Passion. The superlative headdress, necklace, and earrings, were crafted from among the finest of the finest of rare jewels of the Burmese Sapphire, Emerald Cabachonne, and Diamond Stones set in a beautiful Gold Setting. The sheer cost of it was enough to feed her entire village for many years! This amazing and exquisite suite was a sight to behold upon Jade Blossom. She knew not what her future would hold, but she knew at this moment, wearing The Pagoda Passion Jewels, and being carried in the stunning sedan made special for her journey, that life would have some beauty and pleasure in it for her.
The phenomenally sublime Pagoda Passion Suite was created in honor of Vera Fenutzini, Miss Virtual World China 2014, by the extraordinary, very talented Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey Couture

As this newsie trolls the winter vacation haunts of the rich and famous, looking for incriminating pictures to take and sell, spots desireme Fallen, Miss V♛Egypt, strolling along the beaches of Oahu. My sources inform me that she is taking a well deserved break after the grueling pace of the Miss Virtual World Contest. The beautiful model appears to be deep in thought as she walks about the resort. What’s this! Miss Egypt is wearing Miss V♛Kirabati’s jewelry!!! Let me use my long lens for a closer look! The incredible Sunset on Kirabas Jewelry Suite designed by the famous and fabulously talented, Belle Roussel, of Chop Zuey Couture, for Miss Selina GreyCloud, Miss Virtual World Kirabati, is around the lovely neck of desireme Fallen! Is she hard up and had to part with her exquisite Allegresse Jewelry, also designed by Belle Roussel, and has taken to thievery??? This magnificent suite consists of 2 Necklaces, Bracelet and Earrings made from the finest Manchurian Peridot, the choicest of Japanese Coral, and the best Lavendar Spinel and Diamonds set in Gold. Why is this former beauty contestant wearing her set?? Does Miss Greycloud know her set is missing??? It appears that Ms. Fallen has other talents besides being beautiful! I wanna know, you wanna know, enquiring minds want to know… is this the brewing of a delicious scandal!!!

Today I got to be a diva….a Opera Diva! The Opera Challenge was very interesting as I love Opera! Never in my wildest dreams would I ever imagine that I would get to portray one of the greatest Opera characters…Aida! Thanks to Belle Rousell, of Chop Zuey, who by the way is a real life Opera Singer, and have sung around the world, composed a list of some of the greatest Opera Divas. This list was made by Belle Rousell even before the final list of official misses came out. So all numbers are totally random! I was assigned by random number to Aida. Aida by Verdi, is basically another love triangle in lavish Italian opera style! Aida, an Ethiopian Princess is captured. She is Strong, loyal, regal but conflicted. I have seen the production in real life, and it is astonishing…. a visual feast to the senses!!!
I did research on the various productions from around the world of Aida. The costume designers were phenomenal in their design’s choices for the role. My inspiration came from the costume designers who dressed the various Sopranos who have played Aida. Although she was enslaved, her style of dress never let you forget that she is a princess! Bold, colorful, and regalness I borrowed from the various Sopranos to envision this look.
