The women at the Hostal de los Reyes Cat

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I wanted to see what the hotel where I might be staying next year looked like so Jorge and Charo from NOOVO magazine sent me these images. They appeared in the first issue of their previous magazine, Balder. Jorge did the photographs while Charo did the styling.

“We went to a geriatric home to do the casting because we did not want to work with fashionable girls. The women were all very nice so it was an amazing casting, some of them were really typical Spanish and nearly 85 years old. After the shooting we all went for lunch and had a really nice time. It was a great feeling to know that for at least for one day these women were made to feel like stars and had the opportunity to do something different.”
