The Ultimate Concealer Palette

Serge Lutens_Bonne_Correction

«Three clever little shades that provide a multitude of possibilities for perfecting your complexion: they stomp out redness and banish dark circles. They are to your average corrector what porcelain is to terracotta.» – Serge Lutens

The new concealer palette UNE BONNE CORRECTION by Serge Lutens is more than sublime, it offers everything you need for a perfect eye. It includes three different concealer shades, a translucent setting powder and some brushes so that you can slip it into a bag for easy retouching during the day.

UNE BONNE CORRECTION is available in perfumeries and in department stores for approximately CHF 205.00 (€ 150.00) now.

My Look: Louis Vuitton’s Sticker-Prints


While filming for Spotlight in Cannes, I wore this new outfit by Louis Vuitton. Since Nicolas Ghesquière took the helm at the French Maison, there have been some amazing new looks and accessories. I fell in love with those sticker-print pieces, inspired by adhesive labels on vintage Vuitton luggage, the minute I spotted them on the runway.

My look: Sticker-print top, matching skirt, silk bandeau scarf and Petite Malle Monogram bag, all by Louis Vuittoncutout leather platform pumps by Saint Laurent, Limelight Gala watch by Piaget, Hapi leather bracelet by Hermès, diamond ring and bracelet, both by Vainard Fine Jewellery.


Fashion lovers around the globe were drooling over the house’s new It-bag, the Petite Malle, a playful miniature take on the classic Vuitton trunk. How cute is it that the bag matches the print on my tee?!

Spotlight from Cannes

For those who have missed it or don’t have the chance to watch Swiss television, here is the first Spotlight show moderated by me that was presented last Saturday. The episode is all about my favorite moments with Chopard in Cannes during the Film Festival. I interviewed Caroline Scheufele and supermodel Petra Nemcova. Have fun watching the show and stay tuned for all my impressions from the Côte d’Azur.

M•A•C’s New Beauty Super Weapon


The science of skincare meets the beauty of makeup, all presented in one innovative product. I swear on this new beauty super weapon. M·A·C’s latest Lightful creation comes packaged in a modern dual-chamber bottle that holds two potent formulas – a hi-tech treatment serum and an incandescent tint.

Use the lightweight and translucent gel-like serum all over the face at night to curb hyperpigmentation, and the tinted serum during the day to continue the brightening effects while instantly evening skin tone and adding luminosity. Used together, both formulas target a multitude of skin concerns, from dark spots and dehydration to uneven skin tone/texture, all with the help of our Lightful Radiance Booster, chock-full of ingredients and Vitamin C to promote robust brightening.

Lightful C 2-in-1 Tint and Serum with Radiance Booster
Light pale ivory
Medium warm beige
Medium Plus tan beige
Dark deep caramel
Dark Deep rich golden bronze
CHF 69.00

Available from June 2015 at all M·A·C locations and at online.

It’s all in the luxe twist. Minimal effort required.

My look: College coat by Saint Laurent, flared crepe skirt by Balenciaga, crystal embellished biker boots by Miu Miu, pink cut-out sweater, shearling bagcandy necklace and chain and padlock necklace, all by ChanelDiamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.
