My Look: Where the Wild Things Are

Saint-Tropez is definitely the place where the wild things are happening. After yesterday’s post about CHANEL’s ephemeral summer boutique in the picturesque Riviera hot spot, I thought you might like this outfit shot in the harbor last Saturday. CHANEL accessories are always a fashion-forward addition to create some pretty daring looks. Here you see me wearing some new S/S 2019 pieces combined with vintage ones that elevate the all black outfit into new heights.

My look: Feather capeicon by Balmain, Natalie keyhole mesh jumpsuiticon by Hervé Léger, cutout leather platform pumps by Saint Laurent, mini boxy flap bag, lambskin belt with rhinestoneslogo earrings, and pearl bracelet, all by Chanelicon.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Upper East Side

The last days in NYC as the new digital influencer for Estée Lauder were absolutely amazing. I had many interesting meetings and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. Here you see me at a private home at the Upper East Side with the most spectacular view over the city and Central Park. Needless to say, the perfect backdrop to take some photos of my outfit that was daring and conservative at once, a twist that I love.

My look: Feather cape by Balmain, dress with piping by Chanel, metallic and matte-leather pumps iconand Sac De Jour Nano leather shoulder bagicon, both by Saint Laurent, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, earrings «Tribale» by DiorTonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and Linda sunglasses by Tom Ford.

My Look: Dinner Party

Sandra_Bauknecht_Park_weggis_Dinner_Party

Two weeks ago, I accepted a lovely invitation by Silvio Denz, CEO and President of LALIQUE, to join him for an amazing dinner experience at Park Weggis, the partner hotel of Villa René Lalique, that was constructed in 1920 and brought back to life by my host in September 2015. Today, it boasts six exclusive suites and an up-scale gourmet restaurant. Manning the kitchen is none other than two-star chef and autodidact Jean-Georges Klein who had come to Weggis for this evening to spoil us with his dishes that are colourful and rich in contrast, for the eyes, the palate and the bite.

In terms of fashion, I went for an outfit that sported cascading layers of soft silk chiffon with a ‘trompe l’oeil‘ illusion of voluminous, layered ruffles. The feminine colours ensured a party-ready appearance.

My look: Feather cape by Balmain, sequined-bow tiered silk-chiffon gownfringed cracked-leather pumps, feline earrings with crystalsfringed cracked-leather pumps, gold-tone crystal bracelet and crystal embellished ring, all by Gucci, envelope bag by Céline and diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

New York nights are truly special. The city that never sleeps has that certain vibe that let’s you be full of energy. Here you see me leaving to the H&M x Balmain launch party. I wore this Balmain dress which is one of the iconic vintage pieces that inspired Olivier Rousteing for his designer collaboration with the Swedish fashion brand. I got a lot of compliments for it that night!

My look: Feather cape and embellished metallic jacquard mini dress, bothicon by Balmain, studded bucket bag by Miu Miu, suede overknee boots and earrings, both by Dior, Limelight Gala watch by Piaget and diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.
