My Look: Rooftop Bar

It’s all over town. I have enough of winter and cannot wait for the warm season to come… just a few more month to go during which I have to indulge in memories of days spent in the South of France. Here you see me on the rooftop bar of the Hotel de Paris in St. Tropez during the Asmallworld weekend … heaven on earth.

My Look: Cruise

What do you wear on a cruise? Comfy swimwear and nice tunics are all you need. Enjoying the wind, the sun, the sea and visiting different spots each day. A great place to see is the Amalfi Coast in Italy with its picturesque towns like Positano and Sorrento as well as the beautiful islands of Capri and Ischia.

My look: Embellished printed cotton-voile kaftan by Tory Burch, cutout bandage bikini by Hervé Léger, crochet-knit and printed silk-chiffon headband by Missoni, embroidered brocade drawstring backpack by Guccibeaded necklace by Etro, and DiorOrigins1 round sunglasses by Dior.

My Look: Flashback Street Parade

Last Saturday, I drove back from my detox week in Baden-Baden to arrive punctually for Street Parade in Zurich. Time to retox…! I always love to enjoy the most attended technoparade in Europe in the safe surroundings of the beautiful garden of the Hotel Baur au Lac.

My look: Embellished striped wool and linen-blend and leather bomber jacket, Candy embellished suede and leather platform sandalsicon and metallic patchwork camera bagicon, all by Saint Laurent, Cayleigh flared-sleeve cutout jumpsuit by Hervé Léger, «Blow in Case of Fashion Emergency» necklace by Chanel and round sunglasses with hearts by Miu Miu.

My Look: Show Some Shoulder

Exposed shoulders have become the latest and personally speaking the chicest way to show some skin. Even a modest cold-shoulder aesthetic makes the difference. And unlike legs, this body part always looks good, which means, great news, you can skip a cardio class or two. But if the skirt is short, better not… just saying. I also like the color combination of sky-blue, peach and beige and hope you do, too!

My look: Sky-blue Sandringham cotton-gabardine trench coat and Bloomsbury bag in hand-painted leathericon, both by Burberry, Estelle cutout bandage mini dress by Hervé Légerleather platform pumps by Gucci, cocktail ring by Roberto Cavalli and earrings by Chanel.

Happy Swiss National Day to all my Swiss readers! Let’s smile and have fun today!

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: Formal Jumpsuit

Do you want to know why I love jumpsuits? It is because I can dance in them and that is my favorite part of every party! If I see a dance floor, I need to be on it!

I wore this amazing embellished piece to New Year’s Eve in St. Barths and last week to IWC’s gala «Decoding the Beauty of Time» during SIHH 2017 in Geneva. I combined the look with different accessories for each occasion.

My Look: Always a Lady

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: Dinner with Harvey

sandra_bauknecht_dinner_with_harvey_herve_leger_extremely_piaget_opening_night_zff

Last Thursday, the opening night of the 12th Zurich Film Festival took place with the screening of the drama «Lion» that stars Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and David Wenham. It is a very sad movie based on the true story of a five-year-old boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia; 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.

Festival directors and founders of the ZFF Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri with Iain Canning, Garth Davis and Harvey Weinstein on the green carpet before the screening.

For the opening night, film mogul Harvey Weinstein, director Garth Davis and producer Iain Canning had flown in. All three joined ASMALLWORLD at the dazzling opening night for an exclusive dinner at Conti restaurant, followed by an after-party to dance the night away.
