My Look: Smile

Sandra_Bauknecht_Smile_PradaOne of my favorite quotes says «a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear». I think it is so true. You can wear the most amazing clothes but with no positive attitude, they will look only half as beautiful. Here you see me having a lot of fun shooting the social media campaign for Montblanc‘s «Urban Spirit» line.

My look: Dark blue lace dress, studded bag, velvet mohawk pumps, thin black and gold belt, matching choker (all from previous collections) and new lace-up denim bustier belticon, all by Prada, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

And smile, it is Valentine’s Day – time to get spoiled!

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Munich Bound

munich_bound_sandra_bauknecht_jason_wu_gucci_valentino_chanelLast Thursday, I flew to Munich for a very interesting press conference with Neutrogena. After I landed back in Zurich at 10pm, I went straight to a friend’s cocktail party. I knew I wouldn’t have time to change, therefore I planned my outfit precisely. Metallics are always a great way to work day and night, adding the right shimmer especially in artificial light.

My Look: Watch the Dress

Up the style stakes in this dazzling bottle green pocket watch dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s fairytale-inspired F/W 2016 collection that I wore to the launch event of Audemars Piguet‘s new Royal Oak Frosted Gold at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence last week. Couldn’t this be a better match? It definitely made me feel like Alice in Wonderland…

My look: Pocket watch-appliqué crepe midi dress and Dolce embellished printed leather shoulder bagicon, both by Dolce & Gabbana, black jacket, goat hair-trimmed leather pumps and drop flower earrings with green crystalsicon, all by Gucci, diamond ring and bracelet, both by Vainard Fine Jewellery.

My Look: Always a Lady

This was my look that I wore to the de Grisogono gala «Folies in Cannes» during the 69th Cannes Film Festival at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. I love wearing Hervé Léger gowns as they are comfortable, sexy and ladylike at once and the best is that they are great to pack in a suitcase as they don’t wrinkle.

My Look: Relax

sandra_bauknecht_bad_ragaz_chloe_kenzo_gucci

While you are reading this, I am on my way to NYC again for the launch party of Kenzo x H&M. October has been a crazy travel month so far and fighting jet lag takes a lot of discipline. Therefore I was extremely happy to spend the weekend at the Grand Resort Bag Ragaz where I could just relax and chill. I truly need this «time off» in between those crazy weeks. Here you see me in the park of the hotel on Sunday enjoying the beautiful autumn sun and being already in a «Kenzo» mood.

My look: Chunky striped mohair wool coat and matching hat, both by Chloéprinted cotton-jersey T-shirt and printed cotton-jersey track pants, both by KenzoAce embroidered low-top leather trainers and Dionysus medium embellished coated canvas shoulder bag, both by Gucci, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery, «So Real» sunglasses by Dior and Tonda 1950 Set Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

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: What If

sandra_bauknecht_alessandra_rich_zff2016

Last week during the Zurich Film Festival, I was guest of NESPRESSO to see the Swiss premiere of «Bridget Jones Baby», the continuing adventures of British publishing executive Bridget Jones as she enters her 40s, starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey. «What if» is a major question in this movie that is so much fun. I was laughing through the entire film. The good vibes of the evening continued after the screening with the delicious plates prepared with passion and originality by the young and talented chef Ralph Schelling.

My Look: White Dinner

Recently I was invited to dinner where all guests had to wear white. I spiced up this non-color dress code with some gold touches as you can see. It is a great way to follow the rules while still adding some excitement to your outfit.

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.

Silvio_Denz_Sandra_Bauknecht_J-M_KleinSilvio Denz to my left and Jean-George Klein to my right.

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.
