One of my favorite quotes says «a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear». I think it is so true. You can wear the most amazing clothes but with no positive attitude, they will look only half as beautiful. Here you see me having a lot of fun shooting the social media campaign for Montblanc‘s «Urban Spirit» line.
My look: Dark blue lace dress, studded bag, velvet mohawk pumps, thin black and gold belt, matching choker (all from previous collections) and new lace-up denim bustier belt, all by Prada, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.
And smile, it is Valentine’s Day – time to get spoiled!

Thank you, Andrea, for always putting a smile on my face when I am in front of your camera!
This year I decided to go a little bananas for my birthday with those cute fruit embellishments at my shoes. Together with the palm print, I blended in perfectly with the tropical Caribbean background.
My look: White crepe top by Balenciaga, palm printed trousers and banana and palm embroidered sandals, both by Dolce & Gabbana, Monogram fringed shoulder bag by Saint Laurent, necklace and bangles, both by Chanel.

Do you want to know why I love jumpsuits? It is because I can dance in them and that is my favorite part of every party! If I see a dance floor, I need to be on it!

Discovering new designers has always been a passion of me and one that I truly adore at the moment is Columbian designer Johanna Ortiz.
Being on everyone’s radar, she was inspired this season by the essence of the French-influenced Caribbean island of St. Barts and I thought it couldn’t be a better match to wear this beautiful cotton top with its voluminous sleeves and V-neck cut exactly there.
My look: St. Barts cotton-poplin peplum top by Johanna Ortiz, cropped high-rise wide-leg jeans by Stella McCartney, Jordaan horsebit-detailed jacquard loafers and Sylvie mini buckle leather shoulder bag, both by Gucci, wide cuff by Chanel, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, earrings by Cartier and rose diamond necklace by Piaget.
