I’ve seen better pictures of myself but it’s the outfit that counts. Never take pictures when the light is directly above you- makes you look like a freak. The important thing in this post is my top and trousers that are both SS 2013 Temperley and you can buy it here: Temperley . Earrings are by Silvia Furmanovich

I was invited to Kiev Fashion week a while back and have such treasured memories from this trip. Here is what my partner in crime Natalie Joos and I managed to get up to in our very limited free time.

Above- view of the hotel from the Promenade in Gstaad. Opened in 1913, the Palace has mock-fortified corner towers and a neomedieval facade . Perfect setting for the Rapunzel fairy tale! That was the determining factor in the choice of hotel of course.
The hotel hosted characters such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Sophia Loren, Roger Moore, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the return of the Pink Panther (1975) with Peter Sellers was also filmed here. The designer, Valentino, called the architecture a ‘brutal Sleeping Beauty castle’. It really is a fairy tale. One of the nicest hotels I have stayed at. Really. It is managed now by the third generation of the Scherz Family, the initial and only owners of the hotel. This is what gives the hotel special touch and makes it very authentic-there is a feeling of tradition, heritage but of a very warm and homey feeling as well. I felt like I was back Swiss boarding school. Back in the little bubble that it was.
Doing the purple Rapunzel vibe on the terrace (it’s freezing) whilst waiting for my hair to grow a touch more.
And having a VERY important conversation. Are those Milan shows going well? They are looking great on style.com

The lovely room and check out the 80′s snow leopard vibe of this Bogner ski helmet.
Loving the black and white images in the lobby- here are a couple from back in the day.
One thing that was missing…is this Each X Other T shirt. Next time I might make it my Palace outfit per excellence.
T shirt: Each X Other
City of sin, Good girl gone bad, Forbidden Games. That’s just the names of the perfumes. Hot caramelized plum stuffed with spices (in the City of Sin), the apricot-like top note of the osmanthus flower (in Good Girl Gone Bad), and the skin of an apple drenched in Laos honey (in Forbidden Games)….do I need to say more? I did not think so. Oh wait…and all of this comes in a gold crafted aluminium minaudière with white lacquer and a 24-carat gold snake with Swarovski eyes. 2013 being the year of the Snake you better run and buy it and have an extra clutch in your wardrobe !

I truly believe that our wardrobe should consist of items that can be worn now and in 10-20-30 years to come. The basics as I call them. Here in this in this interview for the Telegraph I talk a bit about the most timeless piece in my wardrobe, i.e. pieces that don’t age and are not victim to trends- Hermes Kelly. You can read the interview in today’s Telegraph to here online : http://fashion.telegraph.co.uk/news-features/TMG9540799/Cool-customers-four-women-on-the-timeless-classic-they-cant-get-dressed-without.html I am wearing an YSL top and trousers from the Fall 2012 collection and Rupert Sanderson Prunia shoes. Thank you Phong Luu, Aurelia Donaldson and the Telegraph team!
