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 on New Year’s Eve in St. Barths: Bethany sequin-embellished cutout bandage jumpsuit by Hervé LégerMonogramme glittered canvas shoulder bag and cutout leather platform pumps, both by Saint Laurent, cuff and choker with evil eye symbol, both by Chanel, Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

YSL Spring Look 2017 – The Street and I

ysl-spring-2017-the-streets-and-i-collectionysl_spring_look_2017ysl-spring-2017-makeup-streetart-collection

Having been a huge Saint Laurent fan over the past seasons, I was curious how Anthony Vaccarello’s debut at the French Maison would be. Obviously, it was ’80s glamour for the party girls. For the show, blazing against the night sky, was the famous YSL logo with a Y back at home that went missing under Hedi Slimane.

yslss2017S/S 2017 runway

ysl-logoThe logo is back…

Vaccarello even took the logo into the fabulous stiletto heels (love those). Cathy Horyn of NYMag made me laugh, she said that in this case YSL stands for Young Parisian Designer’s experiment.

ysl_heels_logoThe new must-have heels this S/S 2017 season.

You definitely cannot go wrong with the brand’s Spring 2017 makeup collection, so-called «The Street and I». A piece of YSL and definitely lighter on your wallet. As you might have already guessed from the mood photos, this collection is inspired by graffiti, music, Los Angeles, New York, London, Shanghai and Paris. The colors are vibrant, modern. If you are loving orange than you definitely can’t miss out on this collection. Take a closer look! It is in stores now.
