In The Heart Of The Caribbean

When visiting Antigua (pronounced An-tee-goewa) you'll be amazed of the beauty of this exotic island of 108 square miles, set in the really cobalt-blue Caribbean Sea.

Antigua, partly volcanic and partly coral, is surrounded by superb white sandy beaches with almost entirely reef-protection. Excellent for swimming, snorkeling and all forms of watersports - all year around. That is the exotic beauty of Antigua, West Indies, thanks for visiting.

Beauty All Over

How did you get on Antigua Island, friends kept asking. Simple answer : "Because of my job as make-up artist and hair-stylist". For the English catalogue of C & A (see photo) the fashion crew, included me, went for this divine island. We helt a special meeting.

You can imagine we all voted for the first! Yet the photographer did the beautiful locations, as we spent hours and hours, day after day, to beautify the models and made some great pics.
