Lately, the Jules Hotel has felt nothing but euphoria! The Lip(s) contest jury has had a hard time discussing and naming the winning pictures. All the beautiful snapshots you sent have particularly been submitted to the expert eye of Eve Saint-Ramon, the Pin-Up photographer, who shot a part of her new book Recettes de Beauté (Beauty Recipes) at the Jules Hotel. Grace Leo, the very chic founder of GLA Hotels, has, her too, selected carefully her favorite pictures.
Thus, all members of this exceptional jury and the Jules Hotel staff are more than happy to reward very soon the participants for their patience: on Monday, the names of the happy winners will finally be revealed!
Who will be lucky enough to get a week-end for 2 in a Junior Suite at the Jules Hotel? Which one of you will go back home with Bendelirious, the exquisite perfume of Etat Libre d’Orange? But who else will be able to enjoy his/her victory at the Jules Hotel bar, sipping two custom cocktails? Where will settle the “Lips”, sexy icon of the Jules Hotel?
The suspense is unbearable… let’s meet on Monday on this blog or on the Facebook Page of Jules!
Just be a little more patient: The results of the Lip(s) contest, which gathered many of your most beautiful snapshots, should be announced anytime soon. Not only have participations been numerous but also of the highest quality, which did not help the jury to choose!
But deliberations are on their way and starting early November, you will know whether you have won one of the numerous prizes at stake: a week-end for two in a Junior Suite at the Hotel Jules, one Etat Libre d’Orange perfume, two custom cocktails at the bar of the Jules Hotel but also the sexy iconic “Lips” of the Hotel Jules.
Jules already thanks all of the participants for their beautiful pictures of luscious lips, mischievous smiles, and sulky pouts. And most of all, Jules is very excited about sharing them with you: let’s meet very soon on this blog and on the Facebook page of the Hotel Jules where the winners’ pictures will be released!

Because Jules fiancé has always dreamed of being a pin-up, our favourite dandy Parisian decided to give her a sneak peek at the book ‘Recettes de Beauté’ by Bérénice Cler and Eve Saint-Ramon. The official pin up and hotel Jules (obviously Jules favourite design hotel) photographer took a number of vivid photographs of the beauty treatments aimed at women from 15 to 99 years old!
From a milk bath to a morning after face mask, each of the beauty treatments is totally natural and is based on fully edible ingredients! Quick and easy to do at home, they combine fun with the pleasure of feeling beautiful. In the book, the treatments are organised by theme: facial, hands, lips or body scrubs to name but a few. And what if you don’t know where to get the bits and pieces to do the treatments? Well, Eve and Bérénice have even gone to the trouble of listing everywhere that you can buy your precious ‘ingredients’. The benefits of natural beauty are no longer a closely guarded secret!
We Love: After finishing his photo shoot with the glamorous and sexy pin-ups at hotel Jules, Eve Saint-Ramon also took part in judging the hotel’s “Lips” photo contest, with the winner being announced very soon… Watch this space!
Tuesday 18th October, the two authors are doing a book signing at the Mezzanine de l’Alcazar. What better time to ask them about their beauty secrets!?
Recettes de Beauté – written by Bérénice Clerc, photography by Eve Saint-Ramon. Coming autumn 2011, published by YB ÉDITIONS – 19x23cm, 160 pages, 110 photos, 19,95€.
Jules had the (undisguised) pleasure to receive photographer Eve Saint-Ramon for the launching of the “Bouche(s)” photo contest. Eve let him enter her sensual and quirky world during a photo shoot set up in one of the hotel junior suites. Her photographs show chic and cheeky women, very liberated and voluptuous, taking us along an imaginary journey on the borders of Asia and Africa… in the middle of South Pigalle! A pinch of nostalgia, a touch of eroticism, Eve draws her inspiration from the cinema and fifties pin-ups. She has become a reference in the world of burlesque and goes by the name Evestreet, since the ecdysiasts she immortalizes with her camera all bear stage names… Mimi de Montmartre, Miss Glitter Pain Killer, Kitten Onthekeys, her accomplices, leave us musing.
To give you a little taste, here are some of her best photographs shot at the Jules.
To take part in the “Bouche(s)” photo contest organized by the Jules Hotel, all you have to do is send in your pictures. You could win many prizes, including one weekend for 2 in the very same junior suite that served as a set for Evestreet’s shooting!

Jules likes curvaceous women, who know how to have fun and don’t take themselves too seriously. That’s why he will be at the Alcazar on May 24! It is in this chic and festive bar that the 2nd (but not the last) “Pin Up” evening will take place this year. On the agenda: a Glamour Make Up corner by Foxychrys, air shows by Louise de Ville and David Lange, an exhibition, a dinner and a contest to win a photo shoot in a studio. It is the photographer Eve St. Ramon (aka Everstreet) who will be leading the shoot. She has also recently done a glamorous photo shoot at the Hotel Jules. Jules has a sense of nostalgia!
“Pin Up “ Evening, May 24, 2011 at the Alcazar – Paris.
From 19.30. Dinner from 25 € (reservation: 01.53.10.19.99).
62, rue Mazarine
Jules has set up a photo contest open to all. One kiss, what simpler way is there to show your boyfriend you love him… A pout to show him that you’ve been waiting for an hour at the bar terrace. Sensual lips, mischievous lips, smiling lips, as only Jules knows how to appreciate them!
To take part in the contest, all you have to do is send your pictures on the theme of lips and mouth. You could win many prizes, including one weekend for 2 in a junior suite, cocktails at the bar, perfumes… and Lips, of course.
Jules loves his design hotel. Thank you to love him and to have played with him!
Soon, the winners will be expose here and on Jules’s Facebook!
