Anna recently showcased her talents onstage in front of the judges and audience of the German version of X-Factor. OK, so she wasn’t actually singing, but she looked fabulous.
While Anna is known to belt out a few torch songs in the shower, this time it was her fashion designs that took centre stage. She was very pleased to dress the female singing group Big Soul, who are from her own hometown of Hamburg. The soulful quartet wore Anna’s leopard print silk georgette dresses for their performance of “One” by U2.
After seeing a casting show on TV in 2009, the four friends decided they could sing just as well as what they’d seen and formed Big Soul together. The quartet all have musical backgrounds, and their repertoire includes everything from Gloria Estefan to Dionne Warwick to The Supremes. Though they like to sing a capella in order to showcase their beautiful harmonies, they often employ a small band when performing. On the German X-Factor, they have become fast favourites, not only because of their powerful voices, but also because of their charisma.

I wear it a lot! It has already seen the Berliner Philarmonik and a few Parisian musuems! A lady even stopped me a the Pompidou Center to compliment me for the colors (I wore it that day with a nice red coat!)”
Laetitia herself writes a blog called Cafatteria, where she explores “the birth of fun in plus-size clothing, after years under a black uniform.”
Earlier in October, Anna Scholz was very pleased to contribute a number of outfits to the Breast Cancer Care Show, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Each year, this special event provides the opportunity for a glamorous makeover and a runway moment to people diagnosed with breast cancer. The Show “focuses on showing that despite a diagnosis of breast cancer, the experience of surgery and often dramatic implications to self image, people diagnosed with breast cancer can look and feel absolutely fantastic.”
This year, 23 women and one man gave it their all on the catwalk, showing off professional styling by the talented Rachel Fanconi. Guests also had the opportunity to rub elbows with a host of celebrities attending the event.
“The clothes and styling this year were just stunning,” wrote Samia al Qadhi, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Care. “[I]t was the most stylish catwalk show we have ever had.”
