About Tuesday Night

Valentino_Tribe_Party

Paris Fashion Week is always fun, but of course also very tiring and as you might have realized I get barely time to blog. During the day, you attend many runway shows, visit showrooms, have meetings and run from one place to the other. But don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, I absolutely adore my job.

At night, the fashion crowd doesn’t stop. Events, launches and after show celebrations take place, such as the Valentino Tribe Party on Tuesday at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris.

The beautiful location was decorated with all sorts of tribal elements and Monsieur Valentino himself along with Alber Elbaz, Creative Director Lanvin, showed up during the night.

Raspoutine Paris

Later, I went to Raspoutine where L’Officiel Russia celebrated their new social editor, Kisa. It was great to see many familiar faces such as Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman, Jean-Thierry Besins of Bulliony, Natasha Zinko, Lorenzo Giove of Repossi and of course, Benjamin Eymère of L’Officiel Paris… and more!

Enjoy some of the impressions below!

Valentino Shoe Room

Valentino Shoe room

Since I bought my first pair of Valentino Rockstud kitten heels two years ago, I’ve been addicted to the house’s metal embellishments. So you can imagine my excitement when Valentino gifted me with this highly limited pair of Red on Red Rockstud shoes. It is as extraordinary as it looks. Designed exclusively for today’s launch of Valentino’s new e-boutique, Shoe Room, there are only 100 pairs on earth, and one is in Sandra’s Closet.
How cool is that?

If you want to be the proud owner of one of them, start clicking fast, they are only available online and will sell out in seconds.

image_image_new_119732_enMerry Christmas to all my readers around the world and even if you do not celebrate this holiday, I wish a you a wonderful end of the year season. One thing all fashionistas have in common is the desire to look stylish!

Here is my festive look for you. I am completely in love with these shoes by Alberto Guardini. The best gift for all make-up addicts… and the others, too. Available at Colette.

Let’s hope that you will get lots of fashionable presents.
To a wonderful holy night!

Wish Upon a Star

The new cruise 2011 pieces are arriving in stores and some work perfectly for the winter season. Wish upon a star with Christopher Kane’s galactic space print.
The combination with leather is utterly unique and turns on immediately your star factor.
I wore the dress last night with a cropped jacket by Alexander Wang and a fur vest by Miu Miu. Add some overknee boots for total evening cool and finish off your look with some killer jewelry.

To your inner evening star!

An Exclusive Club of Beauties

Dior Frgrances

NATALIE PORTMANThis week, award-winning actress Natalie Portman was annonced as new face of Christian Dior Parfums. Although no specific mention of any particular perfume has been made yet. It is her first time to collaborate with a cosmetics brand.
