My Look: Red Lace

«Seduction, Stripped Down» is the name Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons gave to the collection.
In her S/S 2022 runway notes, Prada said, «We thought of words like elegant—but this feels so old-fashioned. Really, it’s about a language of seduction that always leads back to the body. Using these ideas, these references to historical pieces, the collection is an investigation of what they mean today.»

In this case the very feminine color red is paired with seductive lace fabric and spiced up with unconventionally placed corsetry boning. The belt is worn inside cinching the waist. Can you imagine that I wear nothing under this dress?! This is modern sexiness that only Prada can do!

My Look: Maiden Shanghai

Maiden Shanghai is a new exploration of authentic Chinese cooking in a spectacular setting at the new FIVE Zurich hotel that will open its doors next week. With dramatic views over the Swiss city, it contains a bold dining area and outdoor terrace, aas well as a private dining room. The decor playfully fuses the traditional with the boldly modern, creating spaces that feel open yet connected.

The interior design served as the perfect background to wear for the first time this fun look from the collaboration between French Haute Couture label Jean Paul Gaultier (JPG) and stylist of the moment Lotta Volkova.

My Look: The New Muse

The new muse … Founded in New York City by designers Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk in 2014, AREA was named after the pioneering New York nightclub of the same name. As design students at Parsons the two creative minds bonded over a mutual love of ’80s glamour and feminine silhouettes. I feel so inspired by the  label’s high-octane embellishments.

My Look: Power Dressing

Mixing two vibrant colors with some neutrals and adding some sparkle – that is my kind of power dressing. This exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel, like yellow and blue, and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations, is called color blocking and something I truly like to do. This trend is said to originate from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian.

My Look: Party

It’s weekend – time to party, I miss those carefree days when we were dancing the night away. Dancing is literally my favorite thing to so and the best way to burn of those fondue calories. Unfortunately, Gstaad Palace‘s famous GreenGo hasn’t opened its doors this season (only for me to take these photos). So I can only dream how I would dress up to be a dancing queen.

My Look: Construction Girl

My house is still a big construction site, therefore I moved a few days to Baur au Lac to enjoy some dust-free time. However, it is coming along and I cannot wait to see the final result.

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.

My Look: Don’t Mesh With Me

I just love being in Saint Tropez with its vibrant atmosphere. A few days ago we celebrated Patrick’s birthday at our hotel, the iconic Byblos Saint Tropez. I wore this amazing mesh gown which is surprisingly also extremely comfortable. Sparkling the night away… we finished in the early morning hours! Don’t mesh with me… that is for sure.

My Look: Lily of the Valley

I am wishing you a wonderful first day of May! It is the day to gift lilies of the valley as a symbol of springtime to someone whom you would like to wish happiness. I am wearing them as a beautiful print today.

It was also Christian Dior‘s favorite flower and his lucky charm. He would stitch a stem of lily of the valley into the seam of his dresses for good luck. To celebrate this beautiful tradition, I have been spoilt by the Dior team in Zurich today with a beautiful gift.

To find out more about the symbolism of lilies of the valley and the history behind it, I invite you to read a previous post by clicking here.
