One of my beauty icons is 33 year old French Topmodel Laetitia Casta for her elegant, laid back style and make-up free, natural beauty.
This month, Laetitia graces the cover of the Spanish Vogue as a sultry sun goddess. Dressed in dark shorts by Lanvin and top by Balenciaga, her make up is kept warm, glowing and natural. Make-up artist Osvaldo Salvatierra achieved that summery and understated look using the following L’oreal products:
Skin: L’Oreal Accord Parfait Liquid Foundation in “Vanilla Rose”, Bronzer Glam Bronze 02
Up the eyewear ante with this season’s new shape for sunglasses: the 50s-inspired cat’s-eye.
Whether you’re hitting the town, jet-setting off to a far-flung destination or just in need of a little pick-me-up, I recommend making like a 1950s movie star with a pair of outsized cat’s-eye sunglasses. Bee-stung lips and bombshell curls are optional.
I WEAR: my beloved LANVIN sunglasses LV 4124; it’s a little cat eyes shape but not too much, perfect for me.

A classic lightweight coat and iconic for celebs such as Kate Hepburn, a trench is a must-have for any fashion diva. Trench coats are totally fashion forward. From business to casual, trench coats have you covered when you need a light coat. Think transition seasons, like spring and fall, although some cities — like San Francisco — are perfect for the trench any time of year!
I’m on the road in the castles of of Sans Souci at Potsdam. The ideal chance to wear my trench coat in a casual way. Try skinny jeans on the weekend or form-fitting pants underneath for a sleek, classic look. Treat your trench coat right so you can wear it whenever the mood strikes: These coats go from work to lounge wear with only a few tweaks to your look. When you’re not wearing your trench coat, hang it on a padded hanger. Air dry wet coats before hanging them in the closet. Bust out a bright coat, but classic black or khaki will pair well with what’s in style today and what’s on trend tomorrow.
I WEAR: The classic Burberry trench coat – shopped 1998 in London, Burberry is the absolute iconic British brand -a pair of jeans, Tiger Sneakers, boyish straw hat, Luella Bag.
Funny – a trench coat packed with personal information. I should google the french message…

“My birth sign is Scorpio and they eat themselves up and burn themselves out. I am part prude and part nonconformist. I say what I think and I don’t pretend and I am prepared to accept the consequences of my actions. I swing between happiness and misery and I cry easily. I am a mixture of my mother`s determination and my father`s optimism. I am a mixture of French, Irish and Yorkshire, and perhaps that`s what it all is.”

Macarons to the French are what muffins are to Americans.
Ladurée, French Pâtisserie par excellence and inventor of the double-decker macaron, partnered with Hello Kitty and decorated their chocolates and packaging with the famous kitty head. And what fits better with our favourite kitten than deliciously sweet macarons?!
Lucky for me, Ladurée is represented in 4 shops across the channel in London. Our blog’s 1st birthday was the perfect opportunity to treat ourselves and to check out the store within Harrods.
Ladurée supplied the pastries for the Sofia Coppola movie “Marie-Antoinette” starring Kirsten Dunst.
The layout of the Ladurée tea house is an exact copy of the flagship store in Paris at the Champs Élysées.
