LOOK | COLD IN MILAN

 Ph. by Maximilian P.

The first week of January I spend in Milan (you could have seen this already if you follow me on instagram @lararosestyle). It was my first time there and straight away it belongs to my favourite destinations. Can't wait to go back soon! It was the perfect winter day in Milano, cold and sunny at the same time. The typical Italian streets looked beautiful with that dash of sunlight. I was staying at the 5 star luxury hotel Townhouse in the middle of the famous Galleria in the centre of Milano. The perfect hotel qua location, service and luxury. It was a great experience to stay at a place with so much history and beauty. And what to think of that you step out of the hotel go two steps around the corner and you are in the famous Galleria, not to mention that when you open the window of your suite and you find yourself inside the Galleria..that really swept me of my feet.

During the shoot I was wearing this amazing tartan coat to explore the city and beat the cold. Coats that are oversized or patterned (or both like this one) are really a musthave in Winter, if you ask me. You can layer everything under the coat and still look fashionable. To give it more detail, I combine it with the statement belt from Nikkie Plessen. That also was a great match with the clutch and boots.

LOOK | LONG AND WHITE

Ph. by Maximilian P.

Happy new year guys! It feels good to share my first look of 2015 with you. It is a special post to celebrate the new year. I hope 2015 will be full of love, happiness and of course blogging for all of us! We shot this look in the south of Italy, where I celebrated New Years Eve in this elegant white and long dress for once, instead of going for the usual black and short (what stays are the killer heels, of course).

The holiday season was the perfect occassion to experiment a bit with outfits and make-up, so that's what this look shows. Don't you think that the white dress blended in perfectly with the gorgeous back-drop of the tiny little lake and the white houses? This new years eve had definitely something magical for me. It was great to start a new year at this amazing place.

BEAUTY | THE HOLIDAYS

Ph. by Maximilian P.

The holidays are coming and I am really excited to spend this year's festivities with my love, friends and family. But of course any Christmas wouldn't be complete without a nice make-up look! That's why I teamed up with Estée Lauder to show you my day and night look for Christmas. To finish the day and night make-up look, I wear some of the delicate jewelry and a gorgeous watch of Tommy Hilfinger, a brand that simply always fits my holidays mood.

NIGHT

After my daily make-up routine of crème, concealer and powder for the perfect matte look, I always start with the eyes. For Christmas and New year's Eve I tend to use more brown, gold and bronze shades of the eyeshadow palette from Estée Lauder, to create a chic smokey eye look. I finish the eyes with multiple layers of mascara. My trick is to use a little bit of the darkest shade instead of eye pencil and with this I follow the contours under your eyes. For the lips I am in love with one of the newest colors of Estée Lauder; called berry kiss Violet. It is a shiny and warm color and perfect for the Christmas holiday evenings. For the nails I prefer the colors classic red or burgundy, because it fits every party outfit.

DAY

For the day make-up during a Christmas breakfast or during unpacking your Christmas gifts, I prefer a more simple and easy make-up. For the eyes I use light pink shades from the multiple color palette of Estée Lauder you see in the picture. I put this on right under the eyebrow and at the arcade arch and. After this I apply one layer of mascara. For the lips I choose a matte pink-color from the Estée Lauder 'Lips to envy' collection. To finish, I use a peach toned blush on the cheeckbones.

LOOK | WONDERFUL WHITE

Ph. by Maximilian P.
 
It is obvious that this modern ambiance of architecture influenced my outfit, my mood..my everything. We shot this look on a secret, truly breathtaking location, part of one of the most beautiful resorts in Mallorca. White was already one of my favorite colors before. White to wear, white walls and bricks for houses and white as basic color of interior design. Somehow white cleanses my head and gives me new ideas and inspiration. White stands for serenity, calmness and an escape from every-days madness. But seriously, this location, the architecture, the pattern of beams...how beautiful different shades of white can be in combination with a dark blue sky. The sun reflecting on the beams and the walls, creating a pattern of dazzling light and the heat, the setting. First it all took me by surprise, later all I could be was overwhelmed.

For this post I choose a minimalistic and feminine look, simply because with this location there seemed to be no other choice. But that was not enough, the situation needed a sleek hairstyle and a bold make-up with a bright orange lipstick in my opinion. Normally I don't wear lipstick a lot, but with some outfits and for some occasions it is essential. And this beautiful day in Mallorca was definitely one of these occassions. 
 
Just to let you know, this post is a preview, a sneek peak, of a new exciting project we are working on for months now. Soon I will tell you more about it. What I can reveal now is that Lararosestyle is going to make new steps forward as from January onwards. I hope you are going to enjoy. We for sure are looking forward to it.

LOOK | ESCADA ESCAPE

 Ph. by Maximilian P. 

An escape to Escada. I'm excited to share this new look we shot in collaboration with one of the world's leading luxury brands: Escada. I am wearing their newest collection and these photos are made in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, a great city with culture, sun and that special warm Spanish atmosphere, but also with exciting modernism. It is this rather unusual, but nevertheless wonderful combination, which suits the latest Escada collection perfectly. Escada stands for modern elegance, cool glamour and sensual femininity. The brand, founded in 1978 by Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley, provides a distinct sense of refined quality and excellent fit and is characterized by color, print, and the love for detail. Furthermore, their high standard of workmanship appeals to my heart. So yeah, you can always dress me up in Escada and send me to Spain whenever you want. Because be honest, sometimes it is good to escape..

This look consists a pastel coloured outfit with contrast and edgy details. The cashmere sweater and the capri pants in the same pink tone have the perfect fit and are easy to combine with the rest of your wardrobe. The jacket is from the finest leather with handmade details gives the oufit just that extra something and of course the clutch in metallic pink with golden Escada details is an eye-catcher.
