My Look: Desperate Housewife

Times are over that I am a desperate housewife thanks to the DYSON Cyclon V10 Absolute cordless vacuum cleaner – the investment to purchase the best in vacuum technology to date. With the V8, you’re getting everything that any elite carpet or hardwood vacuum can and should offer. With no cords, HEPA allergy filtration, the ability to clean all flooring types, and a lightweight body, this vacuum is a cleaning lover’s dream. With the exclusive soft roller cleaning head designed to pick up large and small debris, the V10 is not only going to replace your vacuum, but your broom, too.

Happy week – time to clean my shoe closet now!

My Look: Happy Fourth of July

To all my US readers, I am wishing you a very Happy 4th of July! When I lived in Chicago, it always felt so special since it’s a celebration of all things summer with backyard barbecues, beach days, and fireworks. To honor this memory, I am wearing stars and stripes, blue, red and white today. I added some rainbow colors as a symbol of LGBT pride and to remember the true meaning of Independence Day: «Home of the Free because of the Brave».

My Look: Hello Summer

Hello summer! Time to wear one of my favorite denim trends for S/S 2018: a ’70s-style jumpsuit, which is, without a doubt, a statement piece. The head-to-toe, all-in-one garment creates a striking look that is comfortable and stylish in one.

My Look: Green Jumpsuit

While you are reading this, I am in Cannes for the Film Festival. Before I left, my daughter had taken these photos in Zurich for a school project, making me dance in front of tourists. The jumpsuit is one of my favorite pieces from this S/S 2018 season. I adore the cut (so ’70s) and the color so much. The sunglasses are around 20 years old. When I bought them two decades ago, everybody was making fun of me how big they were and told me I looked like a bug. So funny, compared to today’s models, those ones are tiny… time changes, tastes differ.

My Look: Bohemian Dream

Last week, I was in Milan for another UBS Unique event that I am going to tell you more about soon. Here you see me in the garden of the Four Seasons Hotel wearing a one-of-kind kimono by Rianna + Nina who create contemporary pieces from vintage silk scarves to elegant effect. All designs, which are available at for example at Matchesfashionicon, Brownsicon, and Moda Operandiicon are made in Berlin where the designer duo resides.

A huge thank you to Tina Sturzenegger for taking the photos!

My Look: Burgundy & Blue

The last three days I spent in Milan on a business trip and this is one of the outfits I wore (the photos were taken before at Lake Zurich). I just adore the color combination of burgundy and blue. It looks chic and sophisticated. The baker boy cap adds a fun twist to the look.

My Look: Union Jack Style

In the ’90s, John Galliano gave the famous Union Jack a high fashion rehabilitation and in the beginning of the century, Vivienne Westwood’s interpretation of the red, white and blue became an icon for post-punk British creativity. The Union Jack of today has shed its skin of sneery Cool Britannia rebelliousness. Now, Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele shows us that it is all about flying the flag, just not as we know it.

My Look: The Sequined Jumpsuit

It is a well established fact that ladies love a jumpsuit. They are more unexpected than a dress. In terms of dressing jumpsuits simplify your life. You can sit, dance and focus on the accessories. I have to admit that there is a bathroom issue but to me, jumpsuits are the ultimate uniform for the modern woman and an investment piece worthy of topping your shopping list.

Here you see me wearing a sequined one by Temperley London for the closing night of the Zurich Film Festival as guest of Etihad. The British designer does amazing jumpsuits. So I dare you to give them a try—I promise you won’t regret it!

My Look: An Ice Bear in Milan

Hello from beautiful sunny Milan. Here you see me in front of the iconic Duomo (Cathedral of Milan) which is is the largest and most complex Gothic building in Italy. But who would have thought that this embroidered skirt with the cute ice bear would also be the perfect look last night? Surprisingly it was as Moncler had transformed the Via Montenapoleone in a snowy landscape for the opening celebration of their newly renovated store. Most of the street was cordoned off and covered in white, as a multitude of snowflakes fell continuously from the building, landing on the heads and coats of the invited guests (see photo at the end).

My look: Ruffle-trimmed cotton-blend cady jacketicon, ruffled-hem silk and wool-blend skirt, ruffled-neck chiffon blouseQueercore embellished leather ankle boots, GG Marmont matelassé shoulder bagicon and oversized round-frame actate sunglasses, all by Gucci.
