at Dior: Garance Dore

After meeting Garance last season in Paris, I saw her again yesterday in front of the Dior show. And this time I did not hesitate to ask my all time favourite blogger for a picture..

garance1

As always she was incredibly sweet and stylish with her cropped coat and her Chloe lace-up booties – no wonder the Facehunter wanted to take a pic of her..

So I followed Garance a bit, while she was searching a new motive…

…which she found with the incredibly gorgeous Miroslava Duma in a total Chloe look

…so I tried myself with the same motiv..

Hmm, guess whose picture is gonna be better…;)?!

at Dior: les Voguettes

Today, I went to the Dior show in Jardin des Tuileries to do a bit of “street style stalking“.

I was able to capture some of my favourite Voguettes in full action:

Happy Fashion Week!

The Selby book

Todd Selby is the number one source of inspiration when it comes to creative interiors. The new media, more tasteful version of good old MTV cribs (I bet we all watched it at one point…) coveres the homes/ offices of the most coveted artists, models and creative minds like Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Erin Wasson, Oliver Zahm and Alex Wang, to name a few. Now the Selby is finally releasing a book:

Selby_largercover

It contains over 30 profiles, accompanied by Todd’s famous watercolor portraits and small interviews, of which most have not been published before on the Selby site. The book is launching on April 1st, but there will be an exclusive pre-sale chez Colette this week, with lots of cool events ranging from Karaoke, to interior consultation and the possibility to get a portrait of your pet.

So, guess where I will be heading today to get my version of the book…?

I just love Todd’s eye for small, random details and his artsy/crazy motives.

Manifesto hunt part deux

All the fashionable Paris crowd gathered yesterday in front of Colette, to snap one of the highly coveted, strawberry-print YSL bags plus manifesto. It was a real fight and they were out in no time…

Among all the fashionistas lining up on Rue St. Honore, these two young ladies were definitely the coolest:

These two mini-fashionistas were totally into fashion brands and had already gotten the YSL manifesto last season (!)…too cute. So I could not resist taking a pic with them.

After the stressful hunt, I just had to take my bag out for a little walk in the sunny Tuileries garden…

Manifesto hunt

In a bit, I’m gonna start my hunt for the YSL Manifesto here in Paris (its the perfect sunny weather for it!!). I’m gonna strategically position myself at the distribution location near Colette, to do lots of stylish people watching! So stay tuned!

You can find all the distribution locations here.

Just have to finish off with the Manifesto video, its too good (and Natalia too hot)!!

Les Plastiscines live in Paris

After missing out on the Phoenix concert already, which is completely sold out in Paris, I was lucky enough to get some tickets for Les Plastiscines! Still have to figure out who is gonna be my plus 1, but I am totally excited to go see them! They will be playing on March 16th in la Maroquinerie.

Now I just need to get my hands on one of their “Bitch in disguise” tees!

Perfect V-day

This year, I had the most perfect V-day with the girls in Paris!

v-day

We checked out all the right places for the occasion (definitely worth a visit when in Paris!):

It all started with dinner Saturday evening at this trendy Italian place in le Marais: Cafe Baci. Sunday morning we then had the most girly champagne brunch at les Philosophes. They really have the best breakfast, celebrity spotting included! We rounded it all up with a little stroll through le Marais, where we came across this lovely Valentine’s pop-up store, which distributed Kusmi Sweet Love tea for free!

Thank you so much girls, for making this happen!!

Lots of love, xx

To all the hot couples out there…

On this Valentines’s day it seems the right time to pay homage to all of those hot and cute couples out there. They seem to be very en vogue lately, especially in Paris. Some of the most hip Parisian labels, Zadig & Voltaire and the Kooples have been using the theme for their ad campaigns several seasons in a row.

For the coming season, Mark Ronson and Josephine de la Baume are starring in the new Zadig & Voltaire ads. Last season the choice was for the couple du jour Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp, defenitely the hottest duo out there, as proven by the latest issue of Jalouse Magazine.

Sean & Charlotte

And voila, some of the super hip couples appearing in the new the Kooples ad series:

So, even as the most notorious single, you cannot help but love them, right?!

Happy V-day to all of you hot couples and hot singles out there!

Eva Padberg und Armin Mohrbach

I spotted German topmodel Eva Padberg at the Schumacher opening show this morning. I have to say that I’d never been my much of a fan but was totally amazed by her fresh looks and her cool outfit:

Note to myself: Grey-ish velvet blazers paired with powder-colored silk dresses make a perfect fashion-show-outfit. And yeah, who really cares about the bag in 2010?

Bergdorf beauty in Oscar de la Renta

Friday morning at Bergdorf Goodman. On the stairway to theirShoe Salon (which can be described as Sin City for fashionistas) I got to capture a picture of this “Bergdorf Beauty” in a breath-taking Oscar de la Renta silk dress. Models in cocktail dresses and high heels at this time of the day while it’s november-rainy outside? It’s NYC, baby!
