Just returned from Sydney, now I’m leaving Berlin again! This time for longer, tomorrow I will fly to Munich and I will actually live there for the next 3 months. Why? Because I will be an intern at In Style magazine! Pretty exciting, In Style has always been one of my favorites so I’m happy to be part of it soon! So stay tuned for Nadine and the city of munich ; )

British topmodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ( dont you just love saying her name with a British accent??? I do! ) walked the red carpet of the ELLE Style Awards in London yesterday and looked absolutely fabulous. I want her dress, her fur vest ( if its faux which I doubt ), her hair and her body please…

One thing that I couldnt live without having in my closet is T-Shirts. Plain T-Shirts in every color or T-Shirts with crazy prints, long or short, they’re a great basic! Even Vogue showed a casual T-Shirt in one of their editorials and I love how simple yet sexy it looks. I think most guys would agree with me when I say that girls in T-Shirts can be more sexy than wearing what would be called a sexy outfit, for example a really short dress. You dont think so? Then look at this…
Aparently there are thousands of useful apps out there, I have an ipod touch for almost two years now and honestly, I dont use many apps. But today I saw this and I think I might download it, finally a useful app for fashionistas :
The new fashion dictionary-app for iPhone and iPod touch
Finally, a fashion dictionary! The renowned publisher “Fachverlag Schiele & Schön”, based in Berlin, launches the dictionary for clothing and fashion as an app for iPhone and iPod touch. It will be a helpful assistant if you need a professional translation for technical terms.
Or do you know straightaway that for example pirate trousers means in German Caprihose or in Italian pantaloni alla pescatora? If you had difficulties in translation up to now it will assist you from now on. The new app makes it possible!
The dictionary includes about 8.000 technical terms of the categories: fashion, clothing, underwear, and stylish accessory in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. You will find up to date fashion-terms like shaded stripe and cargo style as well as fundamental terms like sleeve hem, revers etc.
Everytime and everywhere you can look up a word and use it. The terms are arranged in alphabetical order and connected with the terms according to the other languages. Results will be displayed after only entering the 2nd character.
An absolute must for everyone who searched desperately for technical terms in a foreign language and who hasn’t found them in expensive standard works so far!

One huge trend this winter is fur, whether it’s faux or not, you see it on the street, in the stores and especially a lot on models off duty. I found it very interesting to see how these four models all wear fur, yet their style looks completely different.
First fur look: Cool
Maryna Linchuk is wearing a beautiful fur jacket in different shades of grey, she combines ist with simple black skinny jeans, black flat boots and black aviator sunglasses. Oh and of course a Chanel purse ( Which model doesnt have one?! ). Of course her look is pretty dark, but definitely cool.
Second fur look: Elegant
I cant vouch for it, but Snejana’s short fur coat looks very authentic and the way she combines it with red lipstick, black and white Chanel boots and a snakeskin bag gives her a very classic and elegant look. The pair of jeans breaks that “elegance” and makes the look more youthful.
Third fur look: Rock’n'roll
Now this is fur for rockstars, a black fur vest combined with leather pants and a leather jacket, high platforms, a red leopard scarf and Wayfarers.
Fourth fur look: Layering
This is layering at its best. Dorothea wears black leggins, a long blouse, a peach skirt, a blazer and a beautiful fur jacket in shades of brown. Great for winter, because the layering keeps you warm and looks very trendy at the same time.

Alright, so I am back in Berlin and honestly I am pretty disappointed by my bad timing, because if I stayed a week longer I would have met Miranda Kerr today. Boohoo…I know. Miranda has been in Sydney for a week now and was very busy, as always. Today she promoted her Kora skincare line at David Jones and also signed autographs for fans. But lets start with her arrival. It’s pretty clear that Miranda loves maxi-dresses, on the plane or on the way to a photoshoot, Miranda sported these casual long dresses combined with short jackets. The day after her first shoot she went to renew her drivers license and of course couldnt hide from the paparazzi once again, wearing a multi-colored skirt and light blue blouse, also love the sunglasses! A few hours later Miranda had a business dinner at Bondi Beach and looked amazing in a black Prada dress before she was the star of the David Jones Winter collection fashion show on wednesday morning. She walked down the runway next to Nicole Trunfio in outfits of Aussie designers like Sass&Bide. Who thought that this was the end of her promo tour is wrong, Miranda Kerr woke up early this morning to give some interviews to morning shows, wearing an amazing blue silky outfit, can she get any more gorgeous??? Finally, she promoted Kora at David Jones and knowing her, she might be doing another photoshooting now. She’s impressive, I don’t know where she gets her energy from but I would love to have a bit of that….and also her dresses. So here’s one week with Miranda Kerr in pictures…
All this beauty… Lindsay Ellingson has really grown on me during the past few months, she has something that not a lot models have, she can be both commercial as you can see by her Victoria’s Secret work and she can also be high fashion like on the cover of Vogue Mexico Feb 2010 issue. But no matter what she does, her face always looks extremely soft and pretty which I love. This has to be one of my favorite Vogue covers of 2010 so far and the editorial makes me want to get hair extensions ; )
Btw, I’m back in Berlin.

I’m gonna go home to Berlin in two days so here’s my Aussie Fashion review: I love the laid back surfer style that girls seem to pull off quite well here, I especially like that the sporty/sexy Alexander Wang style is pretty big here, Aussie girls love short but wide tops and Tees combined with Ray Ban Wayfarers. The biggest trend here of the summer though is definitely stripes, mostly navy stripes and let me tell you, I’ve completely fallen for it too. As you can see I bought this cute Sportsgirl chain bag and the cardigan behind it. I actually bought another cardigan with navy stripes just a different cut. Bad news is… I wont be able to wear this summery trend until May or June when it gets warm in Berlin again but when it’s time, I will wear my stripes with pride ; )
