F1 has to try hard these days to make races more exciting and the cars louder, faster and more powerful. Well, the race in Monaco is definitely the jewel in the crown of the Grands Prix worldwide. The winner of the last three Monaco Grands Prix, Nico Rosberg says:

It`s the most legendary race in the calendar, and it`s the most exciting track to drive on and the most challenging track.

1929 the first Grand Prix took place in Monaco and today its much the same circuit. As the track was not intended for todays modern race cars. This is the only place in the world where the track dictates the style of racing and not Formula One´s technical or sporting rules.

Monaco may be the slowest race of the season but because its so close to the viewers it appears to be very fast and definitely the most exciting race of the year. Some drivers say that new technology and less engine power makes the Formula One cars to easy to drive but nonetheless Monaco remains a challenge to all the drivers because its not an easy track to overtake. Todays safety requirements make it impossible to build a track that compares to Monaco anywhere else. This is why some circuits are struggling to but Monaco is virtually immune from extinction. Changes in F1 regulations for 2017 won´t really affect the Monaco race. Monaco has never been a track that favors the highest horsepower cars with their often less drivable engines.

There is no other race where the fans are in such close proximity to the drivers and the racing as they are in Monaco. The vehicle performance director at the Williams team Rob Smedley said:

I think that we have to seriously think about not changing anything.

Monaco is all about show – off the track and on. Here some pictures of what went on last weekend:

The most popular Instagram hashtag related to the Cannes Film Festival 2015 seems to be #BecauseWeCannes.

 

DESPERADO

Madonna is wearing Givenchy for the Grammy Awards this year. It looks a little as if everyone at Givenchy was afraid to say NO to her ideas. It looks like they tried desperately to put 12 different looks in ONE outfit.

The details on this outfit are beautiful and its definitely couture but I think Madonna should stop trying too hard. She doesn´t need this anymore. Enough!

 

GIRL RISING WITH MyAnnika DRESSES (litterarly!)

 

IMG_3396IMG_3375 IMG_3388 IMG_3395

I was thrilled to be invited to a very prestigious Charity Fashion show at the Novotel in Cannes to comment on the latest fashion trends but more importantly to bring awareness to a very important charity called Girl Rising.

 

Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education.

They use the power of storytelling to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies. Girl Rising unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and the right to reach her full potential.

The mission is to change the way the world values the girl.

Everything the charity does is to ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation.

Being someone who knows a little more than average about fashion I have to say I was excited when I arrived just in time to see the beginning of the fashion show. The same group of amateur models were presenting outfits by different designers. The presented fashion was more the average day-to-day wear but when MyAnnika dresses took the stage and presented the new summer collection I was blown away!!!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 11.24.34 Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 11.24.57

The models suddenly had a change in attitude. It seemed as if the sexy badge dresses transformed the girls into real superstars. Finally I saw the attitude I was missing before!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 11.22.06 Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 11.22.36

The Hervé Léger style dresses by MyAnnika were definitely the highlight of this Charity fashion event in Cannes.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 11.26.06

Girl Rising managed to collect a couple of thousand Euros for their Charity this evening. We all had a great evening, free drinks and snacks and made some great new friends and supported a very worthy cause!

Just take a look at the pictures and comment in the section below on how you feel about the outfits!

Princess Elizabeth in Berlin

I saw Elizabeth Bank wearing this Ellie Saab gown at the Berlin Film Festival and thought: best dress right there! It is gorgeous. It is a little bit “Christmas Barbie” and you get the impression her team encouraged her by saying: “…go for it Elizabeth, you can do it…!”

2579CBFA00000578-0-image-a-59_1423429291006

Again, it is an amazing dress and she carries it very well but Berlin Film Festival is just not the right event, in my opinion, to wear this red glitter princess gown.

NEW FACE OF VERSACE !?

Kate Hudson, seen in Paris at the Haute Couture Show in an amazing cut out dress by Versace, which looks like she just ripped it off Sophia Vergara 😉

Kate Hudson with her mother Goldie Hawn and Donatelle Versace looked a bit like the ghost of Christmas past, present and future to me but I think Kate Hudson is gonna end up being the next face of Versace. Here she is showcasing the second to last look of the runway show, which highlights her importance to the fashion house. Also she was seen in Versace at the Golden Globes this year!

The queen of “over the shoulder booty shot” is on point in this quite unforgiving dress. She probably sprayed parts of her body with hairspray before she put it on, to keep the parts in place.

RICK OWENS EXPOSES PENIS

We have seen breasts exposed on the runway before. But what we saw at Rick Owens Fashion Show in January 2015 in Paris was definitely a first.

nude25n-1-webrick-owens-2

Rick says this collection was inspired by his “desire to create a more accepting culture for male nakedness”. Unfortunately the King of Avant-Garde might have walked exactly in the other direction by highlighting exactly why male genitalia should not be shown publicly.

If the guys were Versace models maybe we would be singing a different tune but this was just distasteful!!!

Has Kim Kardashian undergone Chemotherapy ?!

This week I was confronted with pictures of a bold Kim Kardashian… I thought she must be sick; cancer maybe but…

…actually, when I researched it I found out that the pictures showed 23 old Make-up artist Jordan James Parke who had undergone plastic surgery to look like his idol.

Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-18 um 10.45.43

What he said was shocking yet entertaining so I wanted to share it with you!

“I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”

Jordan reportedly spent over over EUR 100.000 (financed by his family and ex-boyfriends) in plastic surgery to get the Kardashian look. I can only hope that the lips will look better after the swelling and I am sure in a couple of months he will be sorry about having posted his “new lips” with the post.operative swelling 😉

Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-18 um 10.46.41

Here you can see what Jordan looked like as a kid and before he started seeing the doctor. My personal opinion is that 50 injections are definitely too much… He actually told me that this isn´t post-op swelling…it is the actual look he is going for!

Aren´t we all looking forward to Kim´s reaction ??? 😉

FROM SHITTY PLACE TO FRONT ROW SEAT

Bildschirmfoto 2013-12-01 um 21.56.29

Recently I was invited at a shitty restaurant in Paris. We were about 15 people, some close friends and some new friends I had never met before. We had dinner at a restaurant on Rue Saint Honore in the heart of Paris. Despite the weird atmosphere I met some great new people. For example was I introduced to Celine who turned out to be the co-founder of MyBeautifulDressing.

messagepart-9 2

We started talking and she explained to me that MyBeautifulDressing is a luxury e-boutique that primarily offers its clients the opportunity to pre-order the collections of the most sought after fashion designers from around the world!

 

YOUR FRONT ROW TICKET

Celine caught my attention when she mentioned that her website grants you access to the highly exclusive world of Fashion and brings you to the front row of top runways to discover the new collections presented during Fashion Week.

For those of you who don’t know MyBeautifulDressing yet: it’s a french website where you can preorder the latest collections the day right after the show.

BE THE FIRST

I am looking forward to spending a day with MyBeautifulDressing in Paris during fashion week!  The new e-store  makes it possible to buy outfits 1-2 months before they are available in stores. If I am invited for a sneak preview of the latest fashion show collection I will let you guys know…

Mybeautifuldressing.com allows all of us to take a seat in the front row of most of the big fashion shows. It’s the first e-shop proposing to watch the runway shows live by streaming it and allowing to order directly the presented items!

Bildschirmfoto 2014-09-10 um 12.23.02

Lets get back to my crazy night at this Restaurant in central Paris. Finally this boring place had turned into a great location because I had met a great young lady who just showed me how to get my front row seat at the big fashion shows in Paris.

So, do as I do and go to check out the latest trunk shows on www.mybeautifuldressing.com and pre-order the collections the day after the show as if you were seated in the front row!

As if all this isn´t good enough, I managed to get you a 10% discount on all your purchases!!! Just enter the promo code: PRETA2014 before you pay.

A BELT WITH A MISSION

DSC00837

When Romy and I went to Saint Tropez last week we found a package of Mission Belts waiting for us. The amazing colors and stylish looks convinced Romy so she wanted to find out more.

While on the beach enjoying the glorious weather at the Cote D´Azur we decided to find out what Mission Belt is about. Obviously they have a Mission…so lets find out more in this post.

While at the beach we also bumped into Allanah Starr, the most famous Transsexual in the world. She was born in Cuba, grew up in Miami, lives in Paris now and spends her summer in Saint Tropez.

But first lets find out what Mission Belts mission is:

Bildschirmfoto 2014-07-18 um 13.42.50

One $ from every belt goes towards helping people in their fight against hunger and poverty. Mission Belt understands it as its corporate responsibility to give something back to hard working individuals that simply need a hand up. Often times the $ that Mission Belt passes on represents 20% or more of their profit.

 The creators of Mission Belt produced a video to demonstrate how easy it is to use one of their belts. We could not resist sharing this video with you because it is hilarious and at the same time shows you how to use the Mission Belt.

Check the video out here…

Living in Monaco means living on the bright side of life and there for we reccommend you the brightest colors Mission Belt has to offer. We actually got a vivid green, intense purple, summery yellow and a girly pink version of the belt which does´t only look good but is also easy to use and supports a social course.

Big THANK YOU to BAR DU SOLEIL for hosting us in St. Tropez. The food was amazing and the beach Ramatuelle was a nice change to the crowded beach in Monaco.
