Embrace Your Inner Cruella De Vil

Besides this season’s zebra pattern trend, you should not miss another black and white animal print as fashionistas can’t get enough of dalmatian prints. When «too much» is never enough, those pieces are giving major Cruella De Vil vibes.

It is a great example how fashion and cinema are linked together. In 2021, Emma Stone will be giving a new twist to the iconic villain as she plays her in the upcoming film «Cruella», showing the Oscar-winning actress as the younger, significantly more punk version of the famous protagonist who is crazy for the black and white dots.

Here’s your first look at Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil in Disney’s Cruella. The film, also starring Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, and Joel Fry, comes to theaters May 28, 2021.

Below you can find the best dalmtian print pieces available this season. Have fun and get ahead of the fashion trend.

My Look: Into the Wild

Into the Wild- Sandra Bauknecht

This was my outfit that I wore to the Tiffany T collection launch party and the Louis’ restaurant opening last Thursday in Zurich. Brocade fabric mixed with animal print – when it comes to making a statement this season, nature is answering the call. If you are a risk taker, you will definitely take a walk into the wild in those glitter boots.

My look: Leopard print marmot fur coatbrocade dress and gold glitter leather boots, all by Saint Laurent, envelope leather bag with pink calf hair detail by Céline, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery and earrings by Louis Vuitton.

My Look: One Thousand and One Nights

Sandra Bauknecht in Marrakesh Cover

One week ago in Marrakesh, my friend Mel’s big birthday celebration took place on Saturday evening accompanied by the renewal of her wedding vows with her husband Dan. It was a very romantic evening and she look stunning in her Zuhair Murad dress. It truly felt like One Thousand and One Nights and I am so grateful for all these different highlights that we experienced, among them a live performance by Paul Potts, the British tenor, who had won the first series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2007. With all my heart, thank you, Mel and Dan, for your friendship and this magical trip!

My look: Leather-trimmed jersey gown with cutoutsicon by Givenchy, set of 5 gold-tone cuffs iconby Alexander McQueen, earrings by Chanel, ring by Etro, animal print clutch, tribal sandals and necklace, both by Louis Vuitton, small Amulette necklace by Cartier.

My Look: Animal Print

My Look-Sandra bauknecht-Cheetah Print

I love animal prints and sometimes wear them head to toe. But this can be tricky. To work this strong pattern all over, you have to make sure you only wear one at a time. Don’t mix giraffes with leopards, they don’t mingle in nature neither.

My look: Animal print trench dress, printed calf hair Bamboo bag, matching pumps (all pre-fall 2010) and earrings, all three by Gucci, fish cuff and ring by Roberto Cavalli, Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli

American actress Jessica Biel definitely belongs to the Giambattista Valli fan club. Accessorising the refined animal print with simple black accessories for a television appearance in NYC during her “Total Recall” press tour, I think Miss Biel looked extremely elegant.

Get Jessica’s look:
