Hello Babies!

Snatched these Isabel Marant babies at the Corner in Berlin :) Already got them in black, but I've been longing for a colorful version for spring. I know that you either love the Isabel Marant sneakers or you hate them - so what about you?

Me today - last day in Berlin

Right now, we're filming for HUGO BOSS at the Michelberger Hotel in Berlin and since we're flying home this afternoon I opted for a casual look. I got this Isabel Marant shirt at the Corner on sale the other day and guess what? I was lucky and got hold of another pair of Isabel Marant Bekett high-top sneakers from the new spring collection and a blazer from the fall/winter runway show, which was also on sale. Gosh, I'm such a fan ;) Will post some snaps asap, but I gotta go for now! Have a great weekend :D

The HUGO Fashion Show F/W 2012

The HUGO Fashion Show yesterday was breathtaking - top models like Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls walked down the shiny white runway in slim-cut business suits and fabulous coats in pop colors. The front row was filled with A-list VIPs, among them Jared Leto, Julianne Moore and Georgia May Jagger. Do I have to say more?
As I already told you I'm in Berlin for HUGO, so I was working backstage. I got the chance to watch the show rehearsal and had the chance to interview Karlie Kloss, Liu Wen and Josefine Nielsen. After the show, I ran into Chiara, the blogger from The Blonde Salad and her friend was so nice to take our picture - so at least I have one shot of the look I was wearing to the show ;)
In the evening, I went to the HUGO press dinner - the food was amazing and all the celebs and fashion crowd were there. You can see some snap shots on twitter.
Now, I've got to go and start working on another great project here in Berlin...

Video shoot with Bryanboy at the HUGO Store

Woke up super early this morning because we had a video shoot at 8 a.m. with Bryanboy at the HUGO Store. So excited to see the final video... will post it as soon as I have it. Now, I'm at the fitting for the HUGO Show. Talk to you later!

In Berlin for HUGO!

I've been out of touch for a while, but I had to prepare so many things for the Berlin Fashion Week, so I do have a pretty good excuse :) So yesterday I arrived in Berlin and had the pleasure to meet fashion blogger Bryanboy, who is covering the HUGO Show on twitter, on his own blog and as a guest editor on the HUGO Blog. It's so much fun to work with him, he never gets tired and he's really inspiring! As you can see in the pictures, we had lots of fun at the fitting yesterday :D
The HUGO Fashion Show will be streamed live on Thursday at 1:30 pm on the HUGO Blog and it's going to be amazing, so make sure you watch it :)
After the fitting we went shopping at the HUGO Store and then to have burgers and french fries at White Trash - yum!

One of those misty days...

Can't tell you how much I'm longing for summer. The constant cover of clouds and rain is pretty annoying. But I'm back at the office since Tuesday and luckily I can now concentrate on the upcoming Berlin Fashion Week and the new spring/summer collections ;)

Colorblind

Cruel Intentions was THE movie of my teenage years. We watched it at least a hundred times and listened to the soundtrack over and over again. One of my favorite songs from the movie is "Colorblind" - remember the scene when she's at the airport and he's waiting at the escalator? Awwwe, how can you not love the song?!

What's on the menu?

I spent New Year's Eve in Munich, but since I already arrived on the 29th of December, my friend and I had lots of time to take on the city and I thought I'd share some culinary tips in this post :) First up is La Baracca, which is best described as a high-end Vapiano, where you place your order via iPad. The atmosphere is great and the food was really good. The service however was much like the service at Vapiano ;)
On the second day of my visit we tried the famous truffle pizza at H'ugo's - it was just soooo good and if you love truffles it's definitely a must-do!
Before New Year's Eve, we had a quick lunch at Brenner, a restaurant I last visited in 2007, and I must say that it still serves great Italian food. But what I most like about it is its location - so convenient if you're on a shopping tour :D
Last but not least, we got macarons at MAELU - you cannot compare them to the ones from Ladurée, of course, but for German macarons they were quite good. We also tried the cake at the little café on the first floor and here I can honestly say that it was delicious :D
Ok, so now I'm hungry. What about you? ;)
