My Look: Rainbow Stripes

As you already know, I flew to Paris last week with Sisley and stayed at the wonderful Hotel Bristol. Those three days were incredibly busy and unfortunately the weather was not the best so I preferred staying comfortable in my rainbow stripes.

My look: Striped cotton-jersey topicon by Chloécropped high-rise wide-leg jeans and Falabella faux brushed-leather shoulder bag, both by Stella McCartney, embellished leather mid-heel loafers, and aviator-style metal sunglasses, both by Gucci, earrings by Dior.

I Adore J’Adior

Last March upon writing today’s post, I knew already that the DiorJ’ADIORslingbacks will be undoubtedly the most sought after shoes of the season. Maria Grazia Chiuri, who is the first female designer to head up the house of Dior in it’s 70 year history, rocked her runway debut with slogan tees, tutu skirts and a shoe that has reached a cult status in an instant.

But ladies, it is not only the clothes and accessories, that make a woman beautiful. We also need to work on our radiance when nobody is watching us. Therefore I would like to recommend to you today Dior Prestige La Lotion Essence de Rose.

Combining the power of a fresh essence with the comfort of a milky lotion, this first step of your daily beauty routine in the morning (and at night) is drenched in hydrating agents to deeply moisturize the skin and to wrap it in a protective veil all day long. It doubles the age-defying effectiveness of your other products to reveal a fresher, more luminous complexion.

How It Works:
Through a unique process, Dior Science releases the vital essence concentrated at the heart of Rose de Granville cells and creates the patented Micro-Reviving Rose Water™. La Lotion Essence de Rose reinvigorates circulation and flow between skin cells. Full of life, the skin is infused with a natural rosy radiance again.

Personal experience:
My skin feels after only 4 weeks of use perfectly invigorated. It is softer, more supple and revitalized. Even after not sleeping a lot, my complexion is less dull and wrinkles seem diminish.

My Look: Masquerade Ball in Venice

Recently, I was invited to a beautiful masquerade ball in Venice to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of my friends, Kristina and Piero, at exactly the same location they had tied the knot a decade ago. The dresscode was black and red with headdress. Wearing a Venetian mask with feathers makes you feel truly mysterious. What a fantastic night, thank you!

My look: Rilla crochet cage stitch gownicon by Hervé Léger,  Monogramme Kate studded leather shoulder bag iconand cutout leather platform pumps, both by Saint Laurent, cashmere scarf in black and white by Chanel, earrings and choker both by Dior, diamond rose ring by Piagetdiamond bracelet and diamond ring, both by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

My Look: Seeing Things Clearly

Sandra_Bauknecht_Gucci_Long_Coat_Erdem_Dress_Stella_mCCartney_Star_Bag

Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly. When you go on an important date, I always recommend to try your outfit beforehand and then consult your pillow. The next morning, you will know if you feel secure about it or not. What you wear could discern how confident you feel about yourself. Don’t underestimate the power of an outfit! For this look, I decided last minute to add the denim shirt which gave the floral dress an unexpected twist.

My look: Midnight blue long military-style coat by Gucci, Lucy printed dress by Erdem, stretch-denim shirticon by BalmainSonge pumps in cracked leather by Diorchoker with evil eye symbol by Chanelstar embellished faux-leather Boston bag by Stella McCartney and «Diorette» ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

Dior’s Feminist Tee & J’Adior Kitten Heels

Last summer, Maria Grazia Chiuri was officially named Creative Director at Dior, making history as the first-ever female head designer in the prestigious fashion house’s 70-year history. To celebrate that milestone, the designer debuted her first collection for the brand with some to die for statement-making tees.

The ultimate must-have for all fashionistas among the midst of tulle, lace and an array of romantic gowns, is a white graphic t-shirt emblazoned with the words, “We Should All Be Feminists” that walked the runway tucked into a floor-length sheer tulle skirt.

Hurry up as they will sell out in the next hours for sure!

Rihanna wearing Dior’s feminist tee

Great news is that Dior announced that a portion of sales from its “We Should All Be Feminists” tees will benefit The Clara Lionel Foundation that was founded by the fashion house’s ambassadress Rihanna back in 2012 for whom «in the fight against injustice, inequality, and poverty, access to​ education and health​ is our most powerful weapon».

And if you happen to be at Dior, grab a pair of those ladylike kitten heels that are featuring an arched-heel slingback with J’Adior-printed ribbon trim. So cute!
