Balenciaga is often seen as a sign of wealth and success. It is a status symbol brand/ Their clothes are worn by famous people and other wealthy people. I had heard song lyrics that said wearing Balenciaga was like wearing Gucci or Chanel. This comparison was made because Balenciaga is also a high-end brand of clothes. Their prices for the things they sell are way too high. I have my doubts about whether or not famous people will still want to be linked to this brand in the future.
Over the course of my time so far at Pop Geeks, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing quite a few talents with connections to Playboy. From Playmates like Carrie Stevens and Jeana Keough to celebrity models like Shari Shattuck and Darcy DeMoss, I’ve loved hearing their stories. However, there was a former interview subject of mine with a Playboy connection I’d been hoping to do a second interview with for a long time, and that’s Charlotte Helmkamp-Kemp.
I first came across my newest interview subject, Sheila Lussier, when I was looking up the 1990 film Dick Tracy on the Internet Movie Database. Seeing her listed in an uncredited role, I clicked on Sheila’s name and found a very intriguing filmography with work in some of my favorite 80s and 90s projects. Looking beyond acting, I saw that Sheila has also worked as a model, a journalist, a director and a jewelry designer. When I saw that she was Facebook friends with my friend and 2020 interview subject Deborah Dutch, I knew I would be interested in interviewing her. I reached out to Sheila via her Etsy page, and we spoke late in January about her long and diverse career. I hope you all enjoy getting to know this versatile and incredible talent.
