My Look: Greetings from Paris

Sandra Bauknecht-Paris Je t'aime

Greetings from Paris where I am for another exciting photo shoot with Dior for the launch of their new mascara and eyeliner. The pictures and review will follow shortly. Here you see me at Place Vendôme in one of my favorite outfits this season. I have been in love with Simone Rocha‘s designs from the beginning. From Central Saint Martins graduate to London Fashion Week highlight in under a year, she is the hot new design star to watch. Her innovative collections focus on clean color palettes and experimental fabric techniques.

My look: Faux pearl-embellished scuba-mesh jacket and matching skirt with cutout detail, both by Simone Rochacropped black sweater and pointed leather Mary-Jane pumps, both by Saint Laurent. Pearl hoop earrings and tricoloured Lady Dior bag by Christian Dior. Jewelry by Piaget.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: At the Dior Trunk Show


Yesterday, I attended the Dior Pre-fall 2013 trunk show in Zurich and had a lot of fun with my girlfriends. We were trying on many different outfits while chatting with each other.

I am crazy for this orange silk ball skirt, the bi-colour gloves and fur stole. The wool waist belt with train that you see on the picture to the right had made its way already into my closet, along with the gorgeous Lady Dior bag in shades of grey, pale pink and baby blue.

If you like to find out more about this beautiful collection, have a look at this previous post.


Those houndstooth pieces are divine, add a splash of colour and off you go…

I love them so much. The ambiance, the roses, the colours, the gorgeous Dior accessories such as the pink Lady Dior bag are so divine. Enjoy!



Sweet Sonya, who is in charge for the Swiss PR joined in the fun for a photo together. Gosh, we had a blast! She also took the photos of me below.

I am still in heaven thinking about those days…

Anselm Reyle for Dior

Anselm 6

“I loved working on the Lady Dior handbag. Most of my work builds on objects that already exist, which I then transform. I applied the same philosophy.”

– Anselm Reyes

Dior Neon

When Fashion meets ArtDior is collaborating with Berlin artist Anselm Reyle for S/S 2012. The original and vibrant collection of leathergoods, accessories and makeup, currently presented exclusively in a Miami pop-up Dior store during the Art Basel show is a dream and will be available worldwide in January 2012.

Making of Anselm

Dior has given to the artist total freedom on the creation of this collection and the outcome is vibrant and colourful. I definitely would like to own one of those bags!




A „Camouflage“ Eyeshadow Palette
Adorned with the „Camouflage“ motif created for Dior, an eyeshadow palette offers a mixed harmony of violet, grey and black. Shiny and matt effects recall the artist’s leitmotifs and compose sophisticated eyes.


High-Impact Nail Lacquers
The nail lacquers are playful complements that set the tone in explosive colours. Bold violet of ultra-violet, deep black of untitled black, vivid pink of pink graffiti, vibrant blue of electric blue and a subtle silver of metallic silver compose an electrifying quintet that brings to mind Anselm Reyle’s passion for neon shades.

Here are some photos of the Dior pop-up store,
Miami Design District, 191 NE 40th Street, Miami, FL

Dior Gris Monatigne


Grey is the colour of the timeTyen

Dior’s Spring 2011 make-up collection created by Tyen that will officially launch on January 14, 2011 has some fun new products and inventions.
In a very Parisian spirit, the new spring look is called Gris Montaigne and it features the iconic greys of the House of Dior paired with fresh, feminine shades of pink.

One of the top products is the nail polish 707 Gris Montaigne (CHF 37) that was part of the Gris City collection last November. For further information, read my previous post by clicking here.
The grey shade incorporates all the tones of Avenue Montaigne N°30 and is an indispensable addition to the newest model of the Lady Dior handbag line: The Lady Dior Grey. Matching your nails identically to your handbag sounds pretty elegant, don’t you think?

707 - Gris Montaigne





The star product of Dior Spring 2011 make-up line is the limited eye-shadow set Dior Cannage that opens up to reveal four flattering shades perfect for the season. Paying tribute to the iconic Dior bag, the palette features such couture-like details as the quilted leather exterior and Dior letter charms. Available in 001 Gris Petit Jour & 002 Gris Soupir, each CHF 95.


001 Gris Petit Jour


002 Gris Soupir


My personal favourite is the new Mascara Diorshow 360° in 090 Noir (CHF 59) that mimics a professional make-up artist’s hand. Inside there is a revolving brush that offers a dual rotation, meaning faster and slower motion depending if you want to use it on your lower or upper lashes.
You have to assemble it but that works very easy, see my demonstration below.
Thumbs up for super volume and length without being caky!
