On each new trip, it seems like we rediscover the world somehow. There’s nothing I enjoy more that finding new places. This first time is always full of so many beautiful emotions. For example the first time I’ve ever tried my all time favorite restaurant, I got so excited… Like a kid in a candy store. I will never forget the taste of those delicious crispy fresh fries or the silkiness of the fish. Of course coming back still feels great, you have your favorite options, you know the staff, have been seated at each table, but you’ll never have this first time impression again. Sort of like this innocence, freshness that goes along with trying something new.

That’s exactly how I felt while exploring the gorgeous Eden Roc hotel, just outside Cannes in the cap D’Antibes for the very first time. Chopard invited us for a delicious little lunch there and we had a couple of hours in front of us to walk around and breath in the fresh, free air of the sea. Needless to say that I’ve heard a lot about the Eden Roc. And I can now say that it’s definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in my entire life. A reason that seems to attracts a highly interesting crowd too : there we were lunching, minding our own business as Sofia Coppola walks by, followed by Alessandra Ambrosio, and then of course Carine Roitfeld. They were all there eating fresh fish and sipping mimosas.

I was fascinated by the beauty of the place and I wish that next time I’m back, and I am definitely planning to be back, I’ll be just as impressed as I was. That day, I picked this beautiful dress from Roberto Cavalli’s archive collection. At first, I was very surprised to learn that it was a Cavalli as the style is so retro and posh. But I couldn’t but fall in love with it’s iconic shape, the stripes being perfect for a stroll by the sea. I paired the look to black accessories and these stunning Gucci sunnies to accentuate the Brigitte Bardot kind of feeling of this outfit. Of course, Chopard jewels to add a touche of sparkle and magic in the air…

gros fail pour la robe

that dress is just perfect, let me tell you!

Such a gorgeous outfit and beautiful landscape. And these sunglasses are just perfect – elegant, fancy and stylish!
I also adore your style of writing. You, of course, have beautiful photos and a great taste in style but your choice of words is what brings it all together!

Love ♥

This dress is so beautiful and romantic! Love the black and white stripes with lace details! This look remindes me again of Grace Kelly a little bit!

Wonderful dress for the location – to be honest one of the best matching <3

Love love love your photos!!! So fashionable!!


Beautiful shots !

Love from Paris

This is probably one of my favorite looks from you so far. Those sunglasses are so beautiful! ^^

That dress is a pure perfection :))))


You’re amazing and I love the pictures so much….


BEAUTIFUL pictures! They’re just perfect: your iconic look (it really is), the sea, the colors… seems as it was made for you to shoot this pictures <3 I love all your articles but this time there is something I can't describe… magic? Really nice!

what an amazing outfit! And this scenery!

Stunning dress and shoes.
Mixing stripes and flower lace is surprising but really lovely here.

Just the perfect dress for strolling by the sea, so pretty!

I love this dress! Perfect length and it really suited the location.

I wouldn’t guess never that this dress is from Roberto Cavalli! When I think on him, I usually think in prints like leopard or tropical, so it surprised me! However, this dress is so beautiful and fit in you perfectly, and I love how you paried with these lovely Valentino shoes (I admit that I’m not such a fan, but this one is a exception). For soure, it’s one of my favorite outfits of you!

At the other hand, you need to know, Kristina, that since I read your healthy food’s article I’ve been changing my food habits. I started today to eat more fruits and vegetables, instead of meat (in my house we eat it EVERY DAY… it’s not good, I am right?). I’m pretty sure that by the time, my body will thank me for taking care of him. So, I need to thank you, Kristina. You inspired me to do it and I’m grateful. I love seeing your blog and read your posts, unlike the other bloggers that only write two or three lines like we don’t like to read their experiences and coming only to see photos.

Have a nice weekend, lady.

P.S: I can’t wait to see the photos when you wore these AMAZING dresses (the cream one and the vampire one) of Elie Saab. When I saw you in these dresses, I loved it… so much.

glad you’re having such a great time! x

Absolutely stunning pictures!

Love the earrings ♥ And I really would love to go to Cap d’Antibes one day! ♥

So gorg!

OMG! It’s so beautiful over there! I want to be there NOW!!!

You looked amazing!!

J’aime bien ce que tu dis sur les premières impressions, lors d’un voyage ou de la découverte d’un lieu, c’est vrai que ce n’est plus jamais pareil les fois d’après, mais c’est différent, il y a une sorte de familiarité qui rassure aussi, comme un autre “chez soi” dans lequel on revient…
J’en profite et je vais me permettre ici de te dire que j’aime particulièrement l’évolution de ce blog. J’ai été tenté d’arrêter de le suivre plus d’une fois par le passé parce que je n’y trouvais pas la touche personnelle que j’aime dans un blog, je trouvais ton “personnage” trop innaccessible, et ce moment où j’ai failli partir a correspondu au moment où tu as commencé à plus t’ouvrir, à nous faire partager plus tes ressentis et l’envers du décor de Kayture, même de certains moments difficiles (C’est aussi le moment où je t’ai rencontrée par hasard à Famous Ape à Genève cet hiver). Enfin, j’y ai trouvé une touche plus intéressante qui m’a faite rester. L’image impeccable “papier glacée” ne sont pas les choses que je préfère ici, c’est plus ton parcours et l’inspiration pour les looks.
par ailleurs, je trouve l’évolution vraiment extra, ce “newkayture”… impatiente de voir la suite, et impatiente de tenir ton livre entre mes mains.
Belle continuation !

Gorgeous view of Cannes! And you look incredible in that dress!


Wow! Just so so perfect! I wish I was brave enough to wear beautiful dresses like this, you really inspire me to!

Beautiful pictures! You’re so lucky that you could visit the Eden Roc Hotel, I always wanted but they never had rooms available while Cannes Filmfestival…Also in love with your dress, very cute and it reminds me a little bit of Grace Kelly :)

This shoot is beyond amazing! WOW.

absolutely stunning!


Hey. When i checked Chopard I was sincerely shocked how great this brand is. What is more, your new look is awesome too. I like your pretty dress. Indeed, you are gorgeous as well to.

THAT SCENERY TAKES MY BREATHE AWAY! I’ve never been to Cannes but it’s definitely on the list (as well as those sunglasses).


Gorgeous outfit!

I’m completely in love with your dress, it looks perfect on you!

Love, Greta

Wow! Great outfit!

Beautiful dress! I love it! <3

This dress looks amazing and you’re gorgeous !


Dress, make up, bag, jewelery, hair – great. But combination with that heels is not good. I know contrast is interesting but in this time it does not work.

This dress is amazing and I love the background too!

That dress is beyond beautiful! But the setting… the setting is to die for!

What a stunning dress!! And the jewelry is simply mindblowing!

Love from Munich, L

Quel tact Kristina, James. J’aime cette façon dont vous dévoilez la beauté et surtout l’harmonie que tu dégages Kristina, c’est si raffraichissant et naturel. Vois tu j’ai commencé à lire ton blog en novembre dernier et mon copain un jour s’est intéressé à savoir sur quel (le seul) blog je me délectais si souvent… Et voilà qu’il me dit: ”oh mais c’est Kristina Bazan! comment ça? Tu la connais? Mais oui vite fait, on était au gymnase ensemble”. Comme ce monde suisse est petit n”est ce pas? En tout cas je te souhaite que du bonheur là où tes ailes t’y mèneront. Tu es une femme de caractère et vas y que tu sais puiser de l’énergie pour aller toujours plus loin et avec une modestie que je reconnais si bien et qui charme. Merci pour cette élégance et ce style si simple et pourtant si classe. On ne peut qu’admirer. Tu es de ces rares femmes qui savent vivre intelligemment et toujours (oui bien sur c’est possible) avec goût! Voilà mon petit discours plein d’amour! take care. C

Love this shoot so much! Kristina is gorgeos and the view is just perfect x

Welcome to my polyvore !!!
