My Look: Black Tie

For F/W 2023, Pierpaolo Piccioli takes black tie at face value, a figure of speech for a collection that builds around pieces drawn from every day. Conjecture and cultural capital are inverted – a symbol of masculine power, an emblem of orthodoxy and restriction, our preconceptions of the tie become theoretical architecture for a collection that toys with rules, emancipating meaning. Its ideological conceit is challenged, ultimately contradicted and redefined entirely.

My look: Ruffled wool and silk-blend mini dress, wool and silk-blend tie, Rockstud leather-trimmed wool fedora, and VSLING mini top handle handbag in black with sparkling embroideryall by Valentino, Astrilarge Botta 100 two-tone leather over-the-knee boots by Christian Louboutin.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Enjoy Every Moment

Enjoy every moment… time flies. Here you see me celebrating my daughter’s 21st birthday in Boston at Contessa restaurant this month. We took the photos on beautiful Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay, next to my hotel The Newbury Boston, which often gets compared to Georges-Eugène Haussmann’s Paris boulevards. The street is home to many beautiful residential homes and is divided at center by a wide grassy mall. I enjoyed the warm spring weather in this beautiful Valentino knitwear look that features the iconic 1967 chain motif.

My look: Feather-trimmed jacquard-knit tunicicon, matching cropped feather-trimmed stretch jacquard-knit pantsicon, Toile Iconographe pump in polymer and patent material, and VSLING mini top handle handbag in black with sparkling embroideryicon, all by Valentino, sunglasses by Louis VuittonGrand Apparat forever scarf 90 in crème/gold/multicolorescarf ring 90 Régate, bracelet Click H Hermès Factory in gold and lumière, and bracelet Click H in rose gold and marron glacé, all by Hermès.

My Look: Classy With a Savage Side

Classy with a savage side… I love juxtapositions. Traditional bouclé tweed that emphasizes the shape of the body is mixed with oversized velvet for a fierce yet sweet look. I got many compliments walking around the sunny streets of Boston in this beautiful outfit. Here you see me in front of the Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Newbury Street that is located right next to my hotel, The Newbury Boston.

My look: Double-breasted velvet jacket by Saint Laurent, bouclé tweed jacket, and matching mini bouclé tweed skirt, embellished silver-tone belt and silver-tone, crystal and faux pearl clip earrings, all by Alessandra Rich, cropped top with logo, and bouclé tweed cap, both by CHANEL, black suede boots by Prada, cutout acetate butterfly sunglasses in shiny black smoke by Fendi, and VSLING mini top handle handbag in black with sparkling embroideryicon by Valentino.

LoL, Sandra
