Dior in Versailles

Versailles

Total look by: Dior

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of venturing outside of Paris, to spend a little day in Versailles together with Dior in order to see where they've drawn inspiration from for the latest high jewellery collection. This is a place I've actually only visited once before (I'm so embarrassed to admit this after living in Paris for a couple of years now) and definitely a place I need to come back to (at least like 10 times). I've yet to see the grand hall of mirrors, or the inside of the huge palace, but one day I'll make it there as well! During this private visit together with Dior, we got to see the most beautiful part of Versailles, which used to belong to Marie Antoinette. We got a little peek inside her private theatre, her mansion where she used to entertain her guests and the beautiful gardens surrounding the estate. I should have brought the picnic blanket for this one! Or maybe even a couple of suitcases... I am looking for an new apartment after all.

Sunny walks along the Seine, pretty landmarks, my favourite park and balconies I'd like to have in my future apartment... The dreamiest clouds I've ever seen, my favourite sunnies (that I lost at a restaurant the other week), love in Paris and shooting together with Louis Vuitton inside an empty Musée d'Orsay. The magical Eiffel Tower (which I will never stop being so impressed by each time I see it), summer evenings along the Seine and bare legs and summer dresses.

Black Magic

Dior

Dress & bag: Dior – Jewellery: Atelier Swarovski – Shoes: Carolina Herrera

To the Vogue Foundation Gala dinner I wore this beautiful black Dior gown, which made me feel like a princess for the evening. I don't think I've ever had my jaw drop to the floor as hard as it did during this evening when entering this absolutely magical dinner setting. I still don't think I'm fully aware of what actually happened that evening, haha. My dinner dates for the evening turned out to be Christopher Kane and Iris van Herpen at the beautiful Swarovski table (yes, exactly, now you can imagine the jaw dropping to the floor once more) and Kendall Jenner and Karla Kloss behind me at the next table. Sometimes I get to experience moments like these that I don't even understand are real when they actually happen, it takes a couple of hours (scratch that: I mean weeks) to realise what you actually got to experience.

Haute Couture Week in July

In Paris

 

 

It's hard to find the time to share everything with you live (except for using Instagram of course) during these crazy fashion weeks, where I literally change in cars and jump on the back of vespas to make it to the next show on time but a few weeks later and I finally got there! Here's another little peek in a few shows during the past Haute Couture Week that took place here in Paris, earlier this July.

In the video below you'll get to come with me to the Schiaparelli show, the Monique Lhuillier and last but not least, the Georges Hobeika show. I haven't really gotten a hang of this video thing just yet – I mostly make the videos for Instagram purposes – but thought that it could be nice to share them here as well since it perhaps would be fun for some people to get a little look at what it might be like during these shows. 

Every single time these weeks come about I (secretly) wish for them to end and every single time they're over I want nothing but for them to start right away again, haha. The grass is always greener, right?

Dior Haute Couture

Dior Haute Couture Show

Total look: Dior

I know I'm late to the party but for those of you who missed it (which should be none of you because who wants to miss out on anything Dior?), here is a little peek at the latest Dior show during Haute Couture week earlier this month, along with what I wore for the occasion. I don't even think I need to say it anymore, you guys already know that this is one of my favourite days during any fashion week! This time was no different. They literally managed to build a whole world (animals included) outside Invalides and took us on the most beautiful journey.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Veuve Clicquot

I've always (and when I say always I really mean it this time) wanted to attend the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New York (or anywhere really) and this season it finally came true. As they said when welcoming all guests to the event, it's definitely the "event of the summer" and the day that officially marks the beginning of sunnier days. I had the best time ever – because who doesn't like to dress up in a pretty dress and drink champagne together with friends while watching a polo match and listening to a live Alicia Keys concert afterwards? I mean, pretty spectacular. Take me back now please!

Like In a Movie

Antibes

Watch: Jaeger-LeCoultre – Dress & shoes: Carolina Herrera

After travelling around the world within two weeks I finally made it back to France and to one of my favourite destinations ever: Côte d'Azur. Also known as the French Riviera. I was beyond thrilled to spend a couple of days together with Jaeger-LeCoultre in Antibes (before moving onto Cannes) for their special evening at Hôtel du Cap Eden Roc, celebrating the 9th Annual Filmmakers Dinner, together with characters like Coco Rocha, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Adrien Brody and Naomi Campbell. I can truly say that it was just as dreamy as it looks, and especially since I have a soft spot for watches and in particularly for the brand itself... Just look at that beauty! The watch that is.
