My Look: Mini Dress

My search for the perfect day to night dress was over when I found this gorgeous embellished one. Mini stands in this case for minimal dressing effort with a huge effect. This showstopper makes a sharp and chic style statement. Combined with my favorite clutch ever, the Chanel cigar box, I love wearing it around the clock.

My Look: Always a Bridesmaid

Being a bridesmaid is a huge honor as you are asked to play an important role in your friend’s special day. Two years ago, one of my closest sweethearts asked me to be her bridesmaid. She was dreaming of this celebration for a long time and had a clear vision as she wanted all of us to wear a different pastel shade.

A rainbow of colors

So first, we divided the different hues among us bridesmaids and each of us got her own dress (fabulous idea – I hate these typical bridesmaid dresses in polyester that force you to wear something you would never ever touch otherwise). The only promise we had to give was to look for a flowing fabric like chiffon.

My look: Embellished pleated silk-chiffon gown by Matthew Williamsonlaser-cut leather and suede platform sandals by Alaïa, diamond necklace and ring, both by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

A true friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words and who carries you back to dinner when your Alaïa heels would be ruined otherwise… and I will always be a bridesmaid for her in my heart!

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Munich Bound

munich_bound_sandra_bauknecht_jason_wu_gucci_valentino_chanelLast Thursday, I flew to Munich for a very interesting press conference with Neutrogena. After I landed back in Zurich at 10pm, I went straight to a friend’s cocktail party. I knew I wouldn’t have time to change, therefore I planned my outfit precisely. Metallics are always a great way to work day and night, adding the right shimmer especially in artificial light.

This was my look that I wore to the de Grisogono gala «Folies in Cannes» during the 69th Cannes Film Festival at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. I love wearing Hervé Léger gowns as they are comfortable, sexy and ladylike at once and the best is that they are great to pack in a suitcase as they don’t wrinkle.

My Look: Relax

While you are reading this, I am on my way to NYC again for the launch party of Kenzo x H&M. October has been a crazy travel month so far and fighting jet lag takes a lot of discipline. Therefore I was extremely happy to spend the weekend at the Grand Resort Bag Ragaz where I could just relax and chill. I truly need this «time off» in between those crazy weeks. Here you see me in the park of the hotel on Sunday enjoying the beautiful autumn sun and being already in a «Kenzo» mood.

My look: Chunky striped mohair wool coat and matching hat, both by Chloéprinted cotton-jersey T-shirt and printed cotton-jersey track pants, both by KenzoAce embroidered low-top leather trainers and Dionysus medium embellished coated canvas shoulder bag, both by Gucci, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, «So Real» sunglasses by Dior and Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

My Look: What If

sandra_bauknecht_alessandra_rich_zff2016

Last week during the Zurich Film Festival, I was guest of NESPRESSO to see the Swiss premiere of «Bridget Jones Baby», the continuing adventures of British publishing executive Bridget Jones as she enters her 40s, starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey. «What if» is a major question in this movie that is so much fun. I was laughing through the entire film. The good vibes of the evening continued after the screening with the delicious plates prepared with passion and originality by the young and talented chef Ralph Schelling.

My Look: White Dinner

Recently I was invited to dinner where all guests had to wear white. I spiced up this non-color dress code with some gold touches as you can see. It is a great way to follow the rules while still adding some excitement to your outfit.

My Look: Oversized Florals

On the S/S 2016 runways, oversized florals burst into full bloom. Large in scale, the blossoms have been seen in all ways, preferably on wide-leg pants and tops. Here you see me wearing the trend on a business trip in Bali last month. Comfortable and stylish in one.

My Look: The Roaring Twenties

Sandra_Bauknecht_Roaring_Twenties_Cover

Last week, I had a little fashion challenge as I got a last minute invite to a «Roaring Twenties» party. Thank God, Sandra’s Closet is full of little treasures that I have collected over many years… here is what I came up with. 1920s fashion is considered one of the most glamorous decades in fashion history. It was all about short flapper dresses in loose fitting that allowed women to literally kick up their t-bar shoes in new dances like the Charleston. The hair was worn shorter. One of the first trendsetter of this style was Coco Chanel.

My look: Gold fringed flapper dress by Bottega Veneta (Runway F/W 2007), feather stole, satin evening bag with fake fur trim, choker and earrings, all by Dior, long pearl and feather necklace
by Lanvin, t-bar shoes by Yves Saint Laurent, head piece with rhinestones by Sonia Rykiel,
icon diamond ring and bracelet by Vainard Fine Jewellery.
