As you ladies and gents know in July I headed to Paris for my first Haute Couture fashion week, and damn was it amazing! It's such a different experience to every other fashion week and that is why I wanted to VLOG my trip and give you a look into one of the most exclusive and beautiful fashion events of the year.
When your life is a constant movement like mine you start to look for comfort in all things. And when it also involves daily photos, hourly Snapchats or InstaSnaps, you sure as hell need good hair! But that can be very tricky especially on the go. Well, at least it used to be. Now that Toni & Guy has introduced the StyleFix collection nothing stops me from having GREAT HAIR all the time.
Probably one of the best stays I've ever had at a hotel. When you travel as much as I do (ok not so much this summer, which is a total anomaly) little things become so important in order to make you feel at least a little bit like home, make you feel comfortable not just physically but also spiritually. Well, the staff at the Knickerbocker definitely took care of that. Having arrived at the hotel a little too early the room wasn't available, which I knew would happen and was ready to leave the luggage in storage and come back later. However, the staff offered us a complimentary lunch as a "sorry" that the room wasn't ready yet. Of course it would have been rude to deny the invitation, but also totally inappropriate to let my stomach empty for long, so we went to enjoy ourselves. By the time we finished our second round of rose the room was ready and we had enjoyed one of the nicest meals during our trip to NYC.
A fringe and lighter hair colour really puts you in a position where you feel obligated to test Jane Birkin's style on yourself. Once the fringe grows a little more, you can also go for a more Brigitte Bardot thing just like I attempted a few days ago at the Revlon Ball in London. But back to Birkin's relaxed 70s style. It's actually one of the rare times, unlike Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and many others, when the style of a retro fashion icon is so easy to integrate into the life of a 21st century woman.
Beautiful memories from our stay in Mexico with El Dorado resort. The hotel was surrounded by jungles and empty beaches which is pretty much all I need for an amazing vacation, add delicious food and your mum and it turns into THE PERFECT getaway.
The past 2 months have had a crazy schedule: completing my dissertation, graduating from university, Cannes Film Festival, working on my US business visa, haute couture fashion week... Ah, so many wonderful things have happened! But so many things were happening that I never got to my pictures from Cuba, and you know me, I like showing you a nice final result, the right pictures, nice edits, and so on and so forth.
Some memories from my first ever trip to Mexico that I went on with my mum. I love that you can see the water villas of the hotel we were staying in, El Dorado Maroma, gives it a more Maldives look haha. Ah do I miss wearing no shoes and summer clothing, enjoying a coconut on the beach and taking a swim whenever I get too hot.
I normally tend to avoid eateries in shopping centres, but when photos of Aubaine at Selfridges came up on my explore wall a while ago I couldn't resist the temptation to pay it a visit for the beautiful seasonal decor. Wearing my new favourite sweater from Are You Am I paired with the chicest skirt and pumps.
Not really sure how to express my love for Zuhair Murad and his creations. I've been a fan for years, always looking out for his dresses on every red carpet, always dreaming I'd one day get to be a part of his "gang". Well, you know, as cliche as it sounds, dreams do come true! I'm utterly excited to announce that I'm working with Zuhair Murad around the Autumn-Winter 2016/17 Haute Couture show, taking over the brand's Instagram and Snapchat (zuhairmurad) in order to share with you my favourite Zuhair Murad pieces to wear in Paris as well as exclusive behind the scenes moments
Kicking off Haute Couture fashion week in the best way possible with a night spent with one of my favourite fashion houses- Versace. The collection was my absolute red carpet dream and I was already making a wish list of what I would love to wear to this Fall's events in London, I've included some of my favourite looks below.
