Charlene Loves Two Alberts

Engagement Charlene

Charlene Wittstock, the future bride of Prince Albert, is known for her simple and classy elegance. The tall blonde has actually been a huge fan of Giorgio Armani’s work and she is said to tie the knot this July in a gown by Armani Privé.

But recently she has been seen more and more in Albert Kriemler’s designs for Akris that she even wore for her engagement (see photo above) and during the festivities for the British Royal wedding. As for me, the Swiss brand seems to be the perfect match for the future princess.

Charlene once said that she likes Akris so much because of its modern approach to fashion. I would sign that sentence. Albert Kriemler has a huge talent to dress women very classy witout ever looking old or too conservative.

I am truly wondering who will be designing Charlene’s bridal dress and I am actually pretty convinced that Albert Kriemler has settled the race. After having further enquiried, the house of Akris gave me the following statement: „The good relations between Charlene Wittstock and us have further strengthened.“ That sounds pretty promising, doesn’t it?

Please enjoy the photos of Charlene wearing Akris below:

This gives me pretty much of an idea how she would look like in an Akris bridal gown, just amazing!

Femme Fatale

Femme Fatale Une Vraie

Today I have a stunning outfit for a reasonable price looking like a million bucks. Do you dream sometimes of being a Femme Fatale? This is what you need: A stunning LBD (Little Black Dress), a statement coat (meaning not too basic with some details but still classy), high heels and a great bag. The last one might be the most expensive piece of your outfit. Why? Because you should definetely invest in your bag as you can carry it every day and it will show your style immediately.

The LBD in my set is from Emily & Fin and only costs £65.-. The asymmetric shoulder line gives it the perfect and trendy shape but will still be never out of fashion. Likewise is this gorgeous light coat with the scarf detail by Great Plains for £120.-. Both pieces are available at

But the real glamour comes from that breathtaking headpiece less than €10.- at H&M that I adore like these beautiful shoes by Chloé. They would be a great choice to buy with a discount so please wait for the sale that should begin soon.

And last but not least let`s have a look at the bag: This one by Marni is quite expensive but absolutely worth the price due to its versatility. You can wear it during the day using the gold-tone metallic chain and ribbon strap or as an evening clutch. The flower embellishment makes it a super feminine accessory.

Put some red lipstick on and enjoy discovering your very own Femme Fatale!!!!

LoL, Sandra
