Because the iconic magazine Harper’s Bazaar ‘enormously admires Pascale on account of the carreerpath she has chosen’, in the spring of 2015 Pascale was chosen as ‘Woman of the Week’, a start-up phase for the election of ‘Woman of the Year 2015’. With this election, Harper’s Bazaar pays hommage to women who have accomplished something special within their field of expertise. ‘Harper’s Bazaar honours and crowns national and international luminaries: Women who show vision, courage, engagement and style’. A great honor!

With ten out of the fifty nominees there was a trailer recorded on the backseat of a very nice Mercedes, Pascale was one of the happy few. Editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx interviewed her about her career as a prosecutor.

Unfortunately, on December 14th 2015 Pascale did not win the Award for Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year 2015. Pascale: ‘I admit that my ego found this somewhat of a shame because when you’ve come that far, you also want to win. But I had to concede to the winner, actress Sophie Hilbrand for her tv-show ‘Sophie’s Wrinkles’ (‘Sophie in de Kreukels’). She is a justified winner!’

Knowing that Pascale was chosen by Harper’s Bazaar as a nominee together with world famous athlete Dafne Schippers, actresses Birgit and Katja Schuurman, actress and musical star Chantal Janzen, fashion icon Nikkie Plessen, actress Hanna Verboom, politician for animal rights Marianne Thieme and world class actress Carice van Houten, Pascale went back home with pride and her head held high.

So thank you very much, editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx of Harper’s Bazaar for this great honour and the unforgettable night!
