Oh Monaco, Happy Monday! How is everybody? Recovered from your Twiga benders and boozy Cipriani dinners? Great because winter is over (duh) and it’s time to get into the season of fleeting moments and free spirits with spring/summer dressing. Are you ready?
Mor Perry Swed
Amazing Race Israel Alumni Mor Perry Swed was feeling a bit of a bohemian rhapsody over the weekend in Monaco keeping it super relaxed and chill. Her Instagram bio says “Good Vibes Only” and that’s exactly how we feel about her style. Enough with bodycon, save that for the summer.
Mor looks fantastic in a purple and red printed maxi dress with tassel embellishments. A distressed denim jacket on top for that sudden chilly turn of the weather we know all to well in spring in this area takes the look from basic to bomb. Of course, this being Monaco, when dressing down make sure your accessories are lux. A Gucci Marmont bag in green velvet adds to the eccentric texture story of the look. You may not have won the Amazing Race Mor but you certainly are a contender in this style marathon.

It’s clear by now in this transition period of the seasons it requires a specific formula of dressing. You need something that screams “HELLO WARM WEATHER” when the sun is out and you’re outdoors having a coffee (or G&T, I don’t judge) at the Café de Paris but sensible enough that when the clouds come it doesn’t send you scrambling home for an extra layer. Beauty Marina looks like she couldn’t wait to pull out this gorgeous blue and white striped sundress out of her closet and head to Larvotto. This blondie by the beach opted for casual but still dressy and feminine sneakers from Rihanna’s Fenty Puma line to add that edgy streetwear vibe. The staple of the season, her denim jacket stands at the ready just in case the temperature drops and for fear of giving the cold shoulder Marina can quickly cover up.
Karolina Zubkova Mattes
Fashion never sleeps and this next favourite of mine is the epitome of that statement. Enter Karolina Zubkova Mattes in the perfect look for a Sunday around town. As always, she never fails to disappoint: whether it’s front row at the haute couture shows or walking her dog, she’s always on point. T
This weekend on the occasion of Orthodox Easter, Karolina opted for a white dress (yasss come through purity fashion Queen), a green jacquard camellia print Chanel coat (no doubt custom made) and a bright yellow Hermès Kelly Cut bag. If this was a “normal person” I’d crown the Hermès the pinacle of the look but this being Karolina Zubkova Mattes, she always takes it up a notch – in this case with her beloved Sophia Webster iridescent butterfly heels. Pretty sure she’s the only person in the world to own these but don’t quote me! All I can say is whatever Karolina wears she makes it a quintessential Karolina’s Fairytale fashion moment.
I always love a newcomer, a dark horse, if you can call it that. Someone, be it resident or visitor, who comes to the Principality with his or her own unique style and turns what we thought we knew about fashion upside down. Bonjour Alexandria Iqbal, welcome to Monte Carlo you little jetsetter you.
At first glance I filed this look away in the “You Almost Made It” folder but upon closer inspection of the look and the contenders, I was scratching my head saying to myself “this girl is fierce” serving Mary Magdalene realness, shroud of turin and yeezy season vibes, Alexandria comes through with the neutral crop top sweater popularised by Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, add a high-waist beige maxi skirt to that and you have a look that is either biblical or sent from the heavens to grace us mere mortals. I know some of you guys are gonna be like “what the …” but I like this look, especially the sheerish panels on the skirt and how Alexandria is just so casually walking the dog with her YSL bag and Converse sneakers! Bravo!
Julia Sidi Atman
Someone that’s no stranger to being put on a pedestal and judged is Miss Côte d’Azur 2017, Julia Sidi Atman. One glance at THIS look and you’ll be asking yourself “Is it July?” Julia took full advantage of the gorgeous weather in Monaco to show off some tanned skin in a black and white printed Zara dress cinched together with a Missguided belt. She’s got a bright future ahead of her and her reflective mirror Raybans got her ready. And just to add that special touch, Julia added in some furry Rihanna (yes, again) Fenty Puma sliders. She didn’t try too hard but she for sure put everybody who did to shame with her effortless glam.
