Someone’s finally back in Los Angeles after a busy couple of days of cruisin’ through Europe! Can’t be happier about it. In less than 2 weeks, Cibelle and I have literally travelled across the globe to go to Rome, London and Portugal before flying back home. And in each city, the experience was absolutely grasping, that’s the least to say. It all began with a roman adventure with Bvlgari, then the British fashion awards to finally end up on a major set, shooting my very first Vogue cover in Lisbon with my beloved L’Oréal team. Needless to say, it was truly intense but so incredibly special.
This lovely short journey left me tremendously inspired. I still have a reminiscence of all the mesmerizing landscapes of Rome on my mind, the colors, the light (the taste of that delicious mozzarella in my mouth too!!!) just as much as all the powerful speeches held during the BFA’s. From Lady Gag’s acceptance speech on behalf of Tom Ford to Karl Lagerfeld’s for his Outstanding achievement award which was presented to him by Anna Wintour. A very touching, historic moment in fashion that we will all for sure remember.
I felt so blessed to even simply be be amongst the crowd… I remember so well years ago when I was in my little room in Switzerland dreaming about attending one day one of these events just to watch all these incredible talents, feel surrounded by their magical aura and creative energy. What was even more insane is to know that the very next day, I was on my way to Lisbon to shoot for Vogue. And not just Vogue, but the cover itself. I was pinching myself.
So at 2am, once we got back in our room from the BFAs, we packed all of our stuff, I even managed to write an article for the blog (as you can imagine, I felt highly inspired!) and off we went at 4am to London Heathrow to catch our 7am flight to Lisbon. Once we landed, no time for a nap, it was straight to the set. Gotta say, I would usually recommend anyone to get a big beauty sleep before shooting for something as important as that. But surprisingly my body handled it quite well. The perks of being 22… Gotta keep going while we can right? A little shower and I was ready to roll. I am sharing the cover the with two incredibly talented power girls that you guys will learn everything about as soon as the issue comes out next month. All I can say is that it’s going to be unique and awesome.
So now, after all this craziness, I am back in Los Angeles. It’s almost 4am here and I am jet lagged : sitting on my living room’s couch with my day dress on and a big undone braid in my hair. I fell asleep at 9pm and woke up an hour ago and just felt like posting. Because it does feel so good to be back. The whole month of December I will be traveling less as I really want to spend some quality down time and enjoy not moving around so much as it can get a bit crazy sometimes. I crave opening my fridge, snuggling on the warm, sun heated rug of my bedroom, having long, lazy walks in Santa Monica… It’s also the perfect weather to play with layers. Here I’m wearing this beautiful, easy navy blue dress (it has an awesome detachable collar but for this look, I decided to take it off) and gray faux fur coat from Storets. I love these kind of looks, the ones where you don’t even need to think about. Just throw it on and it makes you feel so great and comfortable.

Love the outfit Kristina. You're so beautiful!
This is such a lovely statement jacket, so it really pops with your all black outfit underneath. The faux fur is super chic, but pairing it with some sneakers really toughen up the whole look in contrast. Gorgeous!http://www.mlmuse.com

Beautiful coat! Congrats on your cover, I'm sure it will look amazing xxhttp://www.looking-glass.ca
Love that coat!
nice coat, love it!
j'aime bien les chaussures, et ce style de look un peu "facile", des chaussures confortables, une tenue simple avec une pièce un peu plus forte, comme un manteau, ça peut être un sac aussi, je suis adepte de ce style, de plus en plus.
Love your coat, i am planning to get one just like that.http://bararadrianadelia.com/
Such a fun coat! Enjoy your me-time in LA, Kristina!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this look! The dress is absolutely stunning and this coat is so special, I just love this whole outfit!
Ma belle, ta vie "on the go" fait tellement rêver. Je suis vraiment du genre casanière, à aimer ma petite routine, ma petite vie bien tracée. Sortir des sentiers battus me fait peur, mais te voir, voyager autant, aller dans des pays différents en si peu de temps, rencontrer des personnes différentes, de tout horizons, avec une histoire, ça doit être tellement enrichissant. Tu ne dois pas t'ennuyer une seule seconde et être tellement inspirée par tout ce que tu vis. Moi, ma source d'inspiration, c'est toi. Je trouve auprès de toi ce qu'enfant tu recherchais dans ce milieu. Et dire que tu n'as que 22 ans et ta vie est tant remplie. T'es un vrai exemple Kristina <3
I like this detachable concept!
Beautiful look Kristina! Especially love the coat. Happy to read you are back and super excited for you about your Vogue Cover! That's every girls dream :-)
