    2. Ehemm, I respect Bill Gates. As for loving Steve Jobs... I seriously doubt everybody does that :D

      However: Mathilde, A+++++.

  2. On peut "aimer" Steve Jobs pour ses inventions mais l'homme avait une face cachée plus noire .

    1. That is absolutely true, Myriam. But IT-people still love him anyway. I really think he was some kind of genius. But I don't expect anybody to agree!

  3. Mathilde looks great this time. Blue in all its shades is the best colour for her.

    2. If you look at how media presents him, he looks like a saint. If you research him a bit, you´ll find controversy. If you dig deeper, you´ll find what I´m talking about.
      He likes to play God, and sadly, his enormous wealth allows him to do so. He´s the last person on the planet that deserves any honors, if you ask me. I cannot think of many people who singlehandedly have caused more damage to the world, than him.

    3. Also, I know that Bill and Melinda Gates have close contacts to various royal houses, especially the Norwegian royal family. This troubles me quite a bit, because I like to think of royalty as people who have the power to be a moral voice in the world, a great potential of doing good and addressing the many huge problems we see today. I´m interested in royalty because of their role in society, and seeing Bill Gates involved makes me feel uneasy. I´m contradicted about royalty, and while I enjoy the glamour and the nice clothes, and the fine palaces, I´d hate to admit that those superficial things are all that´s left to admire with the moral perspective very likely troubled... (Mind you, Bill Gates is far from the only influence that I view as negative. Similarly, the royal involvement in the Davos Economic Forum is highly questionable as it merely caters to the interest of the superrich elite (hence the secluded luxurious venue in Switzerland), and the UN-sessions in New York are not much better. And we see royals flocking to both of those elite gatherings every year.)

    4. @vanessaS, your brand of logic is registered in a different layer of mentality than mine and also many other people.

    1. Please don´t call me unfortunate for having come to a different conclusion.

    2. I´d like to ask you to view the following documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87qrTXZaXkk while keeping in mind that Bill Gates holds a major share of Monsanto´s stocks.
      It´s a long documentary, but it´s very well done and definitely worth your time. I´d very much like to hear your views on it. I find it troubling and highly concerning, but if I´m wrong in my conclusion, then I´d love to have someone point that out to me, and explain their reasoning to me. I´m willing to consider any well-founded point of views.

    3. Vanessa, I am intersted in that documentation and I will watch it!

  8. I really like Mathilde in navy! This is a look I wish Mathilde would repeat more often, it looks younger and fresher!
