My Look: Greenery

Greenery is the Pantone Color of the Year 2017, a fresh and vibrant yellow-green shade that is considered as nature’s neutral evoking the first days of spring. For me, it is  full of hope and energy and I like it the playful Gucci way.

My look: Ruffle trimmed single breasted wool coat, crêpe-jersey and georgette dressembroidered leather knee boots and Dionysus embroidered leather hobo bag, all by Gucci. Ring «Diorette» and matching earrings, both by Dior Haute Joaillerie, Limelight Gala watch by Piaget.

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

My Look: Boom

Boom, it is already Mid February, I find it quite scary how time flies but on the other side I cannot wait for spring to arrive. I am definitely not a winter person. Once the sun is out, I always feel like wearing something floral.

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: Zoofäscht 2016

Zoofaescht2016_Sandra_Bauknecht_Gucci_SS2016

Bohemian luxury inspired by the gypsy free spirit, Gucci‘s romantic dresses embrace all of those feelings and I am truly addicted to Alessandro Michele‘s designs.

I wore this beautiful creation to the Zoofäscht in Zurich three weeks ago which is one of the highlights of the city’s social calendar. The black tie gala took place for the 15th time and raised CHF 780’000 for the zoo’s new Australia complex. It was a fun night with many show acts entertaining the generous guests.

My look: Appliquéd silk-jacquard and printed cotton maxi dressSylvie mini buckle leather shoulder bag iconand green suede sandals (S/S 2006), all by GucciTank Américaine in yellow gold with diamonds by Cartier, Diorette ring and matching earrings, both by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

My Look: Are You RED-y or Not?

Sandra_Bauknecht_Alexander_McQueen_ZFF 2015

This weekend, the 11th Zurich Film Festival came to an end. I was invited by Etihad Airways to attend the Award Night at Zurich’s opera house, followed by a dinner and the after party. To honor my host of the night, I went for an oriental look combined with some vintage Chanel accessories that I got many years ago in Monaco. Red is always a great choice for an evening gown, are you RED-y or not?

It is one of my favorite charity events of the Swiss social calendar that raises money for the city’s children’s hospital.
