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.
@luxsamea 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.
As French Riviera towns prepare to go into lockdown this weekend, police in Monaco will be stepping up controls at all road, rail and air entry points to ensure that everyone is playing by the rules.
Connected Success, created by the Break Poverty Foundation to ensure that no child is left behind and supported by Princess Caroline and her AMADE Foundation, was launched in the Alpes-Maritimes.
The third volume in the Blitz series, the first and only manga produced in Monaco, is hitting stands this Friday.
The Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival has confirmed they are going ahead as planned with their annual cultural event that spans five weekends from 13th March to 11th April.
