My Look: Vampires Everywhere

Sandra Bauknecht Vampires Everywhere in Los Angeles

Here is the second look from my photo shoot in Los Angeles with PIAGET. This outfit is one of my favorites this season. The blood lustre rockabilly-inspired satin bomber jacket with the vampire detail on the back is such an eye-catcher while giving an unexpected twist to the feminine Piaget jewelry. An unbeatable combination!

My look:Embellished satin bomber jacketleopard print blousered skinny stretch-leather pantsBetty chain red leather shoulder bag and suede ankle boots, all by Saint Laurent, sunglasses by Céline, jewelry and Limelight Gala watch, both by Piaget.

LoL, Sandra

The 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Piaget Spirit Awards _ Sandra Bauknecht - Alessandra Rich

Last month, the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards took place on the beach in Santa Monica. Now in its 29th year, the awards are a celebration honouring films made by film-makers who embody independence and originality. I was invited by Piaget, co-host of the star-studded event for the seventh consecutive year.

With several of last year’s most noteworthy films being independent productions, the event drew some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender, Jared Leto, Jon Hamm, Lupita Nyong’o and Reese Witherspoon, among others. Therefore a gazillion of photographers were waiting for the celebrities to arrive.


Jared Leto had obviously as much fun on the red (in this case blue) carpet as I did…

…and I admit that I could totally getting used to it.
