Life is funny sometimes. All winter I was saying to myself, “Nobody is here, it’s so boring in Monaco” or lamenting over the lack of festivities. This weekend hit me like a ton of bricks. Suddenly the streets were filled (overcrowded), I couldn’t get a table at Sass! They had been all booked many hours beforehand, the line at Starbucks was never ending! The season is definitely underway with the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters and Top Marques this weekend and with them brought out the well-heeled masses in their Bentleys and Rolls Royces and the not so well-heeled masses gawking at them from the hairpin bend from behind giant DSLR cameras.
With the weather putting on a good show and the frenzy of activity, the streets were a parade of super cars while the sidewalks were a runway show. But who were the style stars this weekend in the Principality? Here’s your rundown on who wore what.
Model Jessica Samea was living HER best life this weekend as she attended the Monte Carlo Masters dripping in labels. Donning my favourite Cote d’Azur summer accessory, the straw boater, Jessica stayed cool and shaded in a green Balmain blazer + Chanel brooch with the must have Gucci vintage throwback t-shirt.
Suns out, pins out? The model opted for a pair of next to nothing denim daisy duke shorts with a classic Moschino logo belt. Heels at a tennis match? This is Monaco. Not any heels will do. Jessica chose to show off in a pair of black Dior slingbacks. Heels are always practical, that is when the driver drops you off.
Adding to the uber-trendy mood of her look she accessorised with a graphic graffiti print Christian Louboutin Paloma bag and oversized sunglasses. Behind those shades was she really watching the tennis or just checking out the fashion competition? We’ll never know, but don’t worry Jessica, you’re a contender in this match.

Love is in the air. And so are the luxury looks! Glam Svetli snuggled up to her man looking positively chic underneath a straw sun hat that added a touch of rustic charm to her high-end look. With her hair tied with a beautiful silk Louis Vuitton scarf there was no fear of it getting in the way of a kiss from her man.
A beautiful green floral blouse fit in well with the naturalistic and romantic setting. White jeans with a tiny trendy rip on the knees said that Svetli had no intentions of sitting on any of nature’s seating arrangements. Dolce Gabbana imitation hotel slip-on sandals were a statement of comfort and to really set the look off, Svetli opted for a bold red Louis Vuitton Capucines handbag. Like Carrie Bradshaw, Svetli has her labels and love all together. #GOALS
Monaco, the magical place on earth where women are in full hair and makeup before even finishing their coffee. Beauty Queen Yana knows the importance of always being camera ready.
Serving a pretty-in-pink moment from her glam to her outfit, her present and future are looking rosy. Somewhere Coco Chanel is turning over in her grave but probably just yawning and going back to sleep as Yana shows us a sexier way to wear the classic Chanel suit because sex sells and Coco was all about the coins. Step one: open jacket. Step two: wear a bustier. Step Three: Be Yana Weiman. Easy.
For sure as soon as Ms Weiman stepped into the Fairmont in her Valentino Rockstud heels many a male gazer was suddenly alert without a sip of caffeine.
Here’s one for the boys on how to just look cool and luxury and edgy and trendy and like a fashion victim etc etc. That was not shade, “fashion victim” dressing is a legit aesthetic! Stylish teen Matteo loves some hyped up luxury basics.
Okay, so for all of you who aren’t so up on your pop culture, rapper Kanye West goes by the nickname YEEZUS and created a whole line of exclusive and highly-coveted tour merch around it. Matteo rocks a t-shirt from that collection featuring a praying skull to set up the gothic luxury vibe of his outfit. Throw in the most popular Instagram accessory, the Gucci Marmont belt + the black velvet fur Gucci Princetown slip-ons and you’ve got a slick fit going.
I like this look a lot. It’s not too flashy, it’s cool, and could be dressed up with a blazer for evening situations. In the sea of oxford shirts and khaki pants or t-shirts and cargo shorts that I saw all weekend around the Grimaldi Forum, this look was refreshing.
Fashion Editor Aysun blazed a stylish path around Monaco this weekend as she combined textures and aesthetics in her various outfits, but my favourite is definitely this daytime casual look. Super love this romantic gothic prairie dress with rock n roll vibes ... if that makes sense.
With the sheer sleeves and ruffle detailing, the dress makes you look twice and again with all the cool things going on. When wearing a busy dress it’s best to keep the shoes and accessories simple. Aysun opted for THE sneaker of the moment, the Balenciaga Triple S in black that really took this look to even edgier heights. I’m such a fan of dresses and sneakers just as I love sweat pants and high heels.
A little black bag with steel chain handle adds that rough street vibe that really contrasts the feminine aspects of the dress. To add just a tiny bit more of girlish fun, Aysun wears a pair of pink tinted aviators that keep the look funky. Definitely the wild card of the bunch Aysun has her own unique style and doesn’t need any cliché run of the mill luxury items to do so.
