Today we step into the FASHION , STYLE , and ART world and discover what ” Clara’s World ”  has in store for us today as MOLL MAG South Africa , MOLLBABE Babe of the Day Claire Bruno gets interviewed by our CEO Arne Schreuder








Welcome Claire ,











1. Welcome back Claire tell us what have you been up to since we featured you back in the February 2017 issue as its been quite a while and how are you finding the experience to be thus far with us as a MOLLBABE model ?





  • Thank you so much for having me back!  Firstly I’ve been working on my business, Verge Culture – Alternate Wear.  We’ve done lots of sewing of bras and harnesses, did a great shoot for VC, preparing for another coming up soon and will be launching our website with direct sale options very soon!  Other than that I visited my family in London UK , where we fulfilled the siblings lifelong dream of watching our favorite band Depeche Mode – Spirit tour in June 2017 that was held in London UK  together.  I’ve been working on my writing again and in fact one of my young adult novels called – I Am Kai – Water  is now on Amazon in Kindle format and soon available in paperback!  Personally I sadly lost my old basset hound Romeo very suddenly but another rescue basset with a deformed leg has dropped into our lives – Gumpy!


Plus It’s been really amazing being a MOLLBABE model.  Aside from the exposure for myself as a model and Verge Culture as a brand, the MOLLBABE team have been very supportive and I’m grateful for the opportunity of being included. into the huge #MOLLMAGFAMILY
2.  You recently took up art as a hobby aka A LITTLE PIECE OF CLARA’S World , tell us a little more about that ?
You can also get more info on my FACEBOOK PAGE about it as well at Clara’s World
3. What would you say is your favorite holiday season and to go with that your favorite HOLIDAY spot in the whole world and why ?
  • Oddly…winter.  To go with that my favorite place in the entire world is the Drakensberg – The Golden Gate Highlands National Park and Clarens in particular.  There’s a beautiful retreat there…very high up, wooden cabins, self catering, roaring fire, the wind blows, it’s so quiet and you can see forever.  I love the mountains.








4. Whom is the funniest person you know or met in your life that will always make your giggle or laugh out loud and why ?






  • My sister Jackie is without a doubt the wittiest person I know.  She’s so quick and with one look she can make me double up with laughter.  Nobody in the world makes me laugh out loud easier than my darling sister.









5, Whats the most funniest joke you’ve heard recently ? , spill the beans give us a good laugh today
  • A string walks into a bar with a few friends and orders a beer. The bartender says, “I’m sorry, we don’t serve strings here.”  The string goes back to his table, ties himself into a loop and messes up his hair.  He walks back to the bar and orders a beer.  The bartender squints at him and says, “Hey, aren’t you a string?”  The string says, “Nope.  I’m a frayed knot.”   #LMAO







6. Your favorite time of day to unwind and just be yourself by yourself ?
  • Probably sunset, when my family’s home, drinking a glass of wine and cooking.  My other favorite time is when I wake up at 5am, everyone’s sleeping, it’s not yet day but it’s not quite night either.  Everything’s so quiet, I’m drinking tea and it’s just me and my dogs.







7. Name a product you use on a daily bases that you would love to be the spokes person for one day in the future and why ?





  • I love ‘Good Stuff’ products.  In particular their ultra rich body cream, lotions and body washes.  They have the most amazing scents, the ultra rich cream is fabulous for winter but the most important thing is that their products are Beauty without Cruelty endorsed.  That’s a huge reason why I’d be a spokesperson for the product.






8. Your favorite movie quote and why ?



  • You asked for it!  My favorite quote is from Lord of the Rings “Sam’s Speech – Worth Fighting for.”  It sums up the essence of life and the purpose of existence in a nutshell.  Here it is:




Sam’s Speech – Worth Fighting For

Frodo : I can’t do this, Sam.

Sam : I know.
It’s all wrong
By rights we shouldn’t even be here.
But we are.
It’s like in the great stories Mr. Frodo.
The ones that really mattered.
Full of darkness and danger they were,
and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end.
Because how could the end be happy.
How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened.
But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow.
Even darkness must pass.
A new day will come.
And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.
Those were the stories that stayed with you.
That meant something.
Even if you were too small to understand why.
But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand.
I know now.
Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t.
Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.





9. This photo shoot you did recently thats today’s feature , what will you remember and take away from that shoot that you did in a positive light something that you will always remember and never ever forget share with us ?






  • The pure happiness of laughter and friendship – an indication that what we are doing at Verge Culture is from the heart and it’s right.  Our little team, my business partner Lauren, hair stylist Bianca, make up artist Jenn and of course photographer Theo Vorster – we did not stop laughing the entire day!  It was absolutely freezing but we worked so well together, were organized so everything flowed beautifully and we just had fun.  We were lucky enough to be at the venue Avianto – a stunning Tuscan style hotel set along the Crocodile River in Muldersdrift ( SOUTH AFRICA )





10. What will be in style for you this upcoming August month and season what trend will you wear the most , in your opinion whats trendy this fashion season ?
  • I’m kind of a boots, jeans and jacket girl in winter turning into a sandals, jean shorts and strapped top girl in the summer.
