My look: Garbadine jacket, green sequined dress, suede over-the-knee boots, suede bag, wide belt, statement necklace and cocktail ring, all by Balmain x H&M.

My Look: Timeless Portofino

Sandra Bauknecht - Timeless Portofino - My Look -IWC Schaffhausen

As part of the 10th Zurich Film Festival (ZFF), Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen invited me for the opening of the “Timeless Portofino” exhibition.

CEO Georges Kern was joined by Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett and renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh to present the amazing result of a photo shoot which involved a host of stars, such as Emily Blunt, Zhou Xun, Ewan McGregor, Christoph Waltz among others and was organized by IWC especially for the launch of its new Portofino Midsize collection. Before the exhibition set off around the world, IWC celebrated the world premiere with around 250 guests and invited them to a glamorous gala dinner (see yesterday’s post here). Enjoy my outfit post and the photos that I took from above upon the arrival of the famous guests as I was already inside the exhibition.

My Look: A Cool Spin on Classic Pinstripes

Sandra Bauknecht in Stella McCartney Pinstripe F:W 2013

Stella McCartney‘s ability to fuse masculine and feminine designs is outstanding. This winter, she went for the pinstripe pattern and brought the classic business look to the world of high fashion.

Are you still considering it ultra-conservative? Well, no more, ladies! With those pieces you can put a cool spin on classic pinstripes. Neither too lightweight nor too bulky, this style will take you effortlessly from winter to spring.

My look: Striped wool sweater dress, flared pinstriped wool-blend midi skirt, both Stella McCartneyJanis leather pumps and Cassandre light blue clutch with tassel, both by Saint LaurentGloria resin, Swarovski Pearl and crystal necklace by Lanvin, Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis and Mitza ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

My Look: A Lovely Wedding

A Lovely Wedding-Sandra Buknecht

This weekend close friends of mine got married. It was a very romantic and beautiful private wedding celebration with lots of tears of joy and laughter. The bride looked breathtakingly stunning and so thought the handsome groom. One detail that I truly loved was that each guest had a little heart with his name on the table filled with a personalized quote.

My look: Stretch-cady peplum-hem gown by Alessandra Richbow-embellished patent-leather pumps by Saint Laurent, satin clutch bag by Prada, statement necklace by Lanvin and diamond rose ring by Piaget.

I am wishing the newlyweds a happy married life full of love and magic moments!
