My Look: The Lobby

I am invited to Gstaad this weekend for a fun birthday / wedding anniversary celebration. It feels good to go back to my home away from home, even though my favorite hotel, the Gstaad Palace, already closed for the summer season. When people ask me why I love this hotel so much, the explanation is easy. Everything that happens in Gstaad, happens at the Palace. The lobby is a vibrant yet cozy place where you can sit for hours to enjoy great conversations, amazing food with your friends or people who might have just met.

My look: Damask and jacquard tulle dress,, floral-print crossbody bag, Made in Heaven pearl choker, and peace pearl-embellished pendant earrings, all by MoschinoLa Di Da 130 two-tone metallic leather platform sandalsicon by Aquazzura.

My Look: Munich

Munich has always been my happy place. I absolutely adore this city in which I had lived for eight years before moving to Chicago and then Zurich. Therefore I was so happy to be back to see my friends, to enjoy Bavarian food and to walk around the famous Maximilianstrasse for some serious shopping damage.

My Look: Little House on the Prairie

Challenging my inner Laura Ingalls Wilder… Driving with the MASERATI Ghibli Hybrid through the Swiss countryside in my Liberty floral print maxi dress, I remembered the American Western television series «Little House on the Prairie», that I loved to watch when I was a child. It is the perfect outfit for a picnic in the meadow.

My Look: Popcorn

Looking back, the ’90s feels like a golden era—the Game Boy! The Spice Girls! The last cell phone-less generation! but most of all when it comes to the fashion. Do you remember the impossible-to-forget popcorn shirts – aka magic bubble shirts, or scrunchie shirts, as they can also be called – from the late ’90s/early 2000s? They are back! A shirt that’s initially tiny enough to fit a doll, but expands large enough to fit your boyfriend, and that everyone had put on the «never again» fashion list, is making a comeback. I unpinned mine with a matching bra top.

My look: Cropped satin-cloqué cardiganicon, satin-cloqué sports braicon, and Bite layered distressed denim and cotton-piqué shortsicon, all by Alexander Wang, mirrored-platform metallic-leather sandalsicon by Miu Miu, green flap pocket bag with colorful strap (Look 5 Pre-collection Summer 2021), horn layered necklace by Isabel MarantLouise long necklace by Louis Vuitton, and Loulou heart-shaped acetate sunglasses by Saint Laurent.

My Look: Blended

Blended by the breathtaking beauty of Santorini and its amazing sunsets, I wore this vibrant look for a night out in Oia. It is an amazing destination to have your vacation with its Cycladian architecture, the picturesque scenery, and the volcanic landscape. Every corner offers a photo opportunity. Make sure to wear flat sandals or wedge platforms for exploring the stone paved alleys of the Greek island. Another thing to have in mind is that the stones might get really slippery, thus you must be careful and don’t risk your safety for a picture.

My look: GG diagonal silk kaftanicon, GG Multicolour platform espadrille, GG Marmont Multicolour small shoulder bag, and cat-eye marbled-acetate sunglasses, all by Gucci faux-pearl tassel earrings by Oscar de la RentaOyster Perpetual 36 with turquoise dial by Rolex, and J’Adior bracelet set by Dior.

My Look: Trésor de la Mer

Versace‘s iconic «Trésor de la Mer» motif celebrates the vibrancy of nature. Originally presented by  Gianni Versace for S/S 1992, the print shows a beautiful array of starfish, coral, and seashells. For S/S 2021, Donatella Versace seeked inspiration from her late brother’s breathtaking collection and created looks for the modern little mermaid. Here, you see me wearing it on my holidays in Santorini, Greece.

My Look: Santorini Nights

Hello from Santorini where I am on holidays with my daughter right now. The Greek island is one of the most photogenic places you can imagine. The view of the contrasting white houses built on the dark lava cliffs surrounded by the blue sky and deep blue sea is absolutely breathtaking. It has been almost 25 years I was here the last time. Today, the city of Oia is buzzing and has become an absolute hot spot. We are staying at the beautiful Mystique Hotel Santorini, where we took these photos before having dinner at the Lure restaurant, located on top of the hotel.

My look: Baroque-print one-shoulder dresswhite Rodeo pop-print shoulder bag, and black leather double platform sandals, all by Versace, and single earring by CHANEL.

My Look: Kusama

This week, I flew to Berlin for a very special event hosted by Veuve Cliquot: a unique closing dinner of the retrospective of exceptional artist Yayoi Kusama at Gropius Bau. The dress code said «colorful chic», so I went for this artsy, sophisticated look with a touch of elegance and a little bit of Veuve Cliquot orange.

My Look: Energy

Looking good is all about having the right energy. If you feel good about yourself, it’ll be much easier to project that inner contentment into the world. You can wear the most stunning outfit but without the right attitude, you won’t have the same charisma. The best way to get started is taking some time off as I did at the Clinique La Prairie this spring to rewind for an instant energy boost. After my stay, I was ready to kick some … cannot wait to go back soon.

Speaking about fashion, I am in love with this outfit and hope you will be too. This is one of the most comfortable, yet sexy looking jumpsuits in my closet.
