Vintage Cannes

No question, this year’s Cannes red carpet looks are quite stunning…just think of Diane Kruger in that sparkling, 90′s inspired Calvin Klein number

Still, nothing quite matches the glamour of the old days at the French Riviera. So I did a little research in the Cannes festival archives..:

I’m nobody..I can change it all.

Karl’s new cruise collection movie The Tale of a Fairy will be debuting tonight on the the Chanel website. We’ll be seing Kristen McMenamy as struggeling society lady, Baptiste as her player-like god son and favourite model Freja as the mysterious fairy. Don’t miss it out!!


Kate looked amazing today.


She is a real modern princess in her Alexander McQueen gown and natural, fresh make-up.


If I may add this (Carola):

Kate & Pippa Middleton. Both gorgeous! I am still bedazzled by the Royal magic… It melted my little black heart!

Always love looking at pics from Coachella. The carefree and easy-breathy attitude and the complete absence of so-called ‘festival must-haves’ (YES, it’s time to give those hunter boots, Mulberry bags and plaid shirts abreak!) make it so interesting. Will definitely go next year. I mean, you don’t HAVE to do the camping, right;-)?

Ten ways to dress like a Parisienne

Inès de la Fressange once said: ‘You don’t need to be born in Paris to have Parisian style.’ Thanks, lady! For a start, you just have to  follow these -surprisingly simple- style rules. Be inspired!


P.S.: My favourite? Probably a pearl necklace with a rock ‘n roll vintage tee. C’est trop cool!

American INDIAN

Vogue Spain April issue.

OMG, I just LOVE the cover shoot they did on the ‘American Indian’ trend with Toni Garrn. Spanish Vogue is simply amazing. Am currently trying to figure out how to get my hands on as much Native-inspired jewelry as possible to recreate the look. Taking this Isabel Marant necklace to start with:

Friday inspirations: Milan

Can’t believe it’s Friday again/finally! Time flies. Just one more week until SPRING BREAK! I am escaping to one of my favourite places in the world: Milano (the capital of CHICISTAN). What are your plans?


Garance's New Shoes

This picture of Garance’s new heels reminds me of Milan so much! Probably because camouflage prints and Prada heels are essential components of the Milanese signature style;-).

If Chic-istan is a place on earth, Viviana Volpicella is its first lady (and Scott Schuman is her paparazzo). The best thing about any of her looks? The SMILE :-). Simply stunning.

Clutch: Miu Miu, belt: vintage


Clutch: Miu Miu, tee: American Apparel, shoes: Christian Louboutin


Boots & bag: Balenciaga, hoodie: American Apparel (men’s section), sunnies: Dior


Sharing some of my MK Olsen favourites. I can’t believe how old some of these pictures are! But still her look feels so relevant. From the XL beach waves to the multigringed hands and those slouchy tops with heels – she is definitely a modern icon. And will inspire the style of generations to come.

Off to Berlin for the weekend.

Have a good time out in the sun!

Grunge princess


Erin Wasson for Zadig & Voltaire. Not NEW but so inspiring. I mean, seriously: how many people do u know (models included) that can wear a snake print blazer and still look cool?




Gotta love Erin.


The Karolina way

LOVE Karolina! Great way of reinventing my favourite sweater-tucked-into-skirt signature combo.
