Cristina’s Monaco in the M Missoni Dress
Okay, so it was a while ago on the social calendar, but we couldn’t let it pass by without giving our buyer Cristina’s memorable trip to Monaco a mention. Especially because she was giving our new M Missoni halter dress a test drive! Cristina recounts her memorable Monaco moments….
What Cristina Wore:
Dress: Halter Maxi Dress- M Missoni
Evening: Leather Jacket – Fendi
Sandals: Patrizia Pepe
Bangles: My Mom’s
Clutches: White for Day/Black for evening -both Stella McCartney
What Cristina Did: Watched the Grand Prix – ‘it was so loud, even with the headphones!’
What Cristina Ate: ‘to be honest, I was disappointed in the food-couldn’t find a good club sandwich in the whole of Monaco!’
Who Cristina Said Hi to: Boy George!
Biggest Faux Pas Spotted: Tatiana Santo Domingo wearing a maxi shapeless dress with flats and undone hair – it just looked a bit beachy and not polished enough!
Main Trends Spied: ‘Lots of Herve Leger and dresses by Azzadine Alaia, (Monaco was mainly monochrome- lots of black and white and some nude). Lengths were mostly knee-length, there were lots of tailored blazers to be seen for evening.’
Any GMD Dresses Spotted? ‘Not apart from mine! I should have paid more attention!’
Event High-lights: The race itself was amazing! Listening to the F1 cars (theyre soooooo so so so loud) you have to wear special ear-muffs to prevent hearing loss. The car engines can be heard all over the city as the race goes on as well- its very exciting! And seeing Richard Branson and Princess Beatrice at the Amber Lounge After Party (she was wearing a LBD and looked so pretty! I insist the media only prints bad pictures of her).
Event Low-lights: The casino. ‘It’s not as glitzy as it sounds. Oh and the service everywhere was terrible, might have been because it was the Grand Prix- who knows.’
