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.

LoL, Sandra

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!

The last days in NYC as the new digital influencer for Estée Lauder were absolutely amazing. I had many interesting meetings and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. Here you see me at a private home at the Upper East Side with the most spectacular view over the city and Central Park. Needless to say, the perfect backdrop to take some photos of my outfit that was daring and conservative at once, a twist that I love.

Your new must-have eyewear: the «DiorUmbrage» sunglasses from the F/W 2016 catwalk show feature distinctive, innovative mirror lenses with a foliage motif. Developed exclusively for Dior, they demonstrate cutting-edge craftsmanship. The retro-futuristic round front is a juxtaposition of Havana acetate, while the metal temples are adorned with sophisticated details.
The purple mirrored lenses with a foliage motif ensure 100% UV protection.

My Look: Not for Fashion Victims Only

sandra_bauknecht_tommy_hilfiger_dinner_2015

During the Zurich Film Festival, one of the biggest highlights is the exclusive dinner hosted by Tommy Hilfiger. Last year, the American designer himself welcomed the guests at Razzia restaurant and thanked his long-time CEO Daniel Grieder on stage. Later, stars such as Johannes Huebl, Moritz Bleibtreu, and Elisa Sednaoui listened to the private concert by Marlon Roudette.

Playsuits and over-the-knee boots are definitely no longer for fashion victims only, they have become a must this season.

My look: Silk-chiffon playsuit by Emilio Pucci, bi-colour Sac De Jour nano leather tote by Saint Laurent, suede over-the-knee boots by Dior, earrings by Chanel, Diorette ring by Dior Haute Joailleriebar cuff in rose goldicon by Balenciaga and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis .

Stay tuned… tonight it is time for the Tommy Hilfiger dinner again.

My Look: Dinner with Hermès

sandra_bauknecht_dinner_with_hermes_roksanda_dior

Nature is so beautiful that adding to it serves no purpose.” – Robert Dallet (1923 – 2006)

Every year, Hermès picks a theme for the respective year, which is highlighted through their collections and store windows. In 2016, the French Maison is honoring its love for nature with «Nature at Full Gallop».

hermes_dinner_rietberg_museum

Last week, I was invited to an intimate dinner by the House at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich to celebrate this beautiful inspiration. The location was amazing, decorated like a jungle. The dinner was served on the «Carnets d’Equateur» porcelain which I showed you in a previous post and that pictures wild creatures such as the jaguar, lion, tiger, elephant and toucan alongside the rare, the manama, capuchin and wooly monkeys.

hermes_dinner_china

The design was created by late animal artist Robert Dallet and is a voyage to the core of creation. I find it extremely beautiful.

My avid reader might recognize the dress as I wore it already 4 years ago (for the previous post, click here please). It got relaunched this season because of the hype Melania Trump caused wearing it in white for her speech to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.
