My Look: Ruffles

I told you already about my obsession with Ellery‘s playful to-die-for kick-flare trousers that billow out in a way that’s reminiscent of a mermaid tail. Now, you see me wearing them in combination with some more ruffles, a huge trend for S/S 2017.

My Look: X-Men

Sandra_Bauknecht_Look_Xmen_Givenchy_Balmain_Cover

Last fall, I was invited to a really fun party in London. The invite said to wear an accessory or a full look dedicated to the X-Men movies. I went through my closet – as I hate real costumes – to put an outfit together that would come as close as possible. And I think I succeeded pretty well.

One evening, I enjoyed an amazing dinner at the hotel’s Sommet restaurant that has one Michelin star and 18/20 Gault Millau points. Renowned chef Marcus G. Lindner knows how to spoil your senses. Here you see me right before dinner.
