My Outfit at the Gucci F/W 2012 Show

Red Blue Turquoise

The last days that I spent with the Gucci crowd were amazing. I have so much to show you and I am still far behind with my New York adventures

This was my outfit that I wore to the Gucci F/W 2012 show. It was quite difficult to pick something as we had to go straight after to the train station leaving for Florence. I am completely in love with the colour combination of emerald, blue and red. Isn’t it so chic?!

Midnight blue long military-style coat, red belted dress, emerald fur stole and shoes, all by Gucci, ring Diorette by Dior Haute Joiallerie and blue Boston python bag by Céline.

My look: Two-tone silk crepe de chine dress, alpaca and wool gilet, grey python bag, brown leather boots, all by Gucci, pink bleached denim scarf by Louis Vuitton, ring Diorette by Dior Haute Joaillerie and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

Trend Report S/S 2012: Red & Nude

S 2012 RedNUde

Red is a must next summer and in combination with nude and beige just irresistible
Clare Waight Keller, who has replaced Chloé‘s Hannah MacGibbon, shows for her debut collection this colour combination in perfection.

If you are in the mood for shopping, have a look at this stunning outfit below, perfect for the cold temperatures now.

Red & Nude

I personally absolutely adore the colour combination of red and nude, so French and so chic!

This rosette-embellished silk top iconby Lanvin will be a great addition to your wardrobe. It works best partnered with a simple pencil skirt or this trendy pleated leather skirt by Marc Jacobs. Stay warm during winter time with a cozy cardigan by Missoni and the gorgeous red flared wool princess coat by Issa. Add a classic bag such as the nude vitello bow-embellished leather tote by Miu Miu and some killer heels like thestudded open toe sandals by Valentino and you will me make heads turn.

Her look: Burgundy blazer by Stella McCartney, red lace skirt by Erdem, nude sweater by Miu Miu, earrings by Erickson Beamon, boots and clutch by Christian Louboutin.


By the way, the plain brown paper bag is a discreet shopping bag from net-à-porter. In London, you can receive your deliveries like that. Good to know, isn’t it?!

Trend Alert F/W 2011: Blue & Black

Blue & Black

Now that Fashion Week has closed its doors on Paris and we have seen the beauty of the upcoming S/S 2012 season, it is hard to believe that winter is here and it is time we get all dressed up for it!

One of my favourite colour combinations for F/W 2011 is blue & black, a low-contrast but high-impact comboNavy blue works well, but honestly vibrant cobalt is the standout shade to pair with basic black for the perfect winter palette.

Blue & Black - 2

Blast away your winter blues with those beautiful shades! You can shop some of my favourite pieces below to keep your spirits up in the bitter cold. Enjoy!

Blue & Black - 3

Make a stunning appearance in this beautiful cobalt blue gown by Roksanda Ilincic or combine a black top with this stunning maxi length blue skirt by Raoul. To finish off your look, a clutch bag by Fendi and those eye-catching heels by Sergio Rossi would be the perfect choice.

Blue & Black - 4

Another way to work the trend is to focus on the accessories. You can wear a black outfit and add some blue shoes or a cobalt bag for an instant new season upgrade.
Here are my favourites:

1 Classic blue pumps by Christian Louboutin
2 Fur stole by Simonetta Ravizza
3 Bright blue suede boots by Sergio Rossi
4 Strappy python sandals (on sale!) by Alexandre Birman
5 Large hobo bag “Roady” by Yves Saint Laurent
6 Stunning vibrant cobalt suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi
7 A quilted bag by Marc Jacobs
8 A season’s must-have, the floppy hat by Borsalino

So if this winter somebody would ask you if you got the blues, you could proudly say yes!

Look of the Weekend: True Blue

True Blue

„Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.“
–       Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl

So true, even that it is very superficial. But let’s absorb that karma and start shopping…. 
This weekend, I was invited to a friend’s birthday party and this is what I wore. I just adore this colour combination: cobalt blue and neon yellow. YSL’s summer make-up complements it perfectly.

The Miu Miu dress would also look good in combination with other bright hues like pink or green. This is a fun way to work this summer’s colour blocking trend.


My look: Cobalt blue dress, neon yellow bag and matching shoes, all by Miu Miu. The earrings are Vintage Chanel.

Today’s Outfit: Colour Flash

Flash Trend

The colour blocking trend for S/S 2011 is a fun way to wear vibrant hues. Today I am combining two strong and vibrant shades, turquoise and orange. One thing is for sure, we can carry this trend up through F/W 2011.

My look: Blazer, silk blouse, belt, bag and shoes, all by Gucci, leggings by Blumarine.

Colour Blocking



DFL Colour Flash

Orange and turquoise. It’s vibrant and energetic and one of the most exciting colour combinations this fashion season.


The new makeup trends usually suit the fashion trends of the moment so the look obtained can be complete. One of the hottest eye makeup trends for the S/S 2011 season are vibrant colours. If you go for it, keep the rest more simple and just add a touch of peach blush and gloss.

Bright, warm hues help create an adorable look which can be adapted to the occasion style as well as age.

Add a little pop of color on the fingertips! Bright nail polish is an easy way to get trendy, and a perfect addition to your spring break beauty routine. YSL’s Utopian Turquoise 137 gets me excited for the warm weather and you?

A Perfect Trio: Silver, White and Blue

Balmain Trio Silver White Blue

I am in love with this outfit. The cropped metallic leather motocross pants by Balmain look so cool with a white tank top iconand the ivory wool tuxedo jacket. Opposite to the French house’s runway look, I would add an eyecatching pair of shoes in blue and match my nails. Make an unforgettable impression with a bold clutch like this appliquéd metallic leather one by Miu Miu.
