I've spotted the flawless style of Jamie Chung, the actress and fashion blogger, some time ago. But on this occasion I'am fascinated of her versatility.

When I saw the latest Bulgari campaign with Polish model, Magdalena Frackowiak, where she looks like goddness from a fairy tale, I was really curious to find out more about this new fragrance. Aqua Divina was inspired by Botticelli’s painting The Birth of Venus.

This year I wanted to show you the backstage of the Colombian fashion week as I was lucky to live it personally thanks to Max Factor and Pantene. Once again this two brands were responsable for makeup and hair of more than 400 models at #Colombiamoda.
Max Factor is known for its strong relationship with all fashion weeks around the world. Thanks to Mary Grèbol, Max Factor Creative Director for Latin America we could find out latest make-up trend under the name "Non makeup look".
Part of Non Makeup Look makes trend "Pastel skins", which saved me after party by illuminating my tired and grey face without recharging it with a lot of makeup.
Here I share 6 tips on how to never look tired and illuminate your face:
I think this my last review of fashion week Colombiamoda and I'd like to share with you amazing photos of Love Citizens. This brand created by Angelica Bagetti and Camilo Sanchez showed us their latest collection "You are my heart, you are my love", inspired by the name of Modern Talking's song. The entire collection shows the essence of pop culture of the late 80s. We could see perfect pieces to use this summer. Full of blocks of color, vibrant colors, prints, transparencies. Ideal for the cosmopolitan women who love to enjoy her life. I see a lot of pieces you can use at the beach and at the party. Do you like it?
Here my fifth look, which I chose for #Colombiamoda . This was the morning of last day of Colombian fashion week and I was already really tired after wearing heels, so I decided for something chic and sporty. I'm a lover of nautical trend, so without a doubt I have choose this striped midi dress, which I think is perfect for hot summer days. I decided to make it up a little with sequin collar, simple french braid and a pair of adidas superstars.
Here I share you my 5 ways to wear striped dress:
Daniella Battle, one of new talents among Colombian fashion designers, who appeared this year in NonStop space in Colombiamoda, left me with open mouth with her talent. Perhaps I was influenced by the fact that she showed us sensual and extremely femenine designs, with tribal elements and maintained in the world of pastel colours, which I love. I hope to hear more about her and I invite you to check below Kanaás, her third collection.
Few days ago I showed you Ricardo Pava's latest collection "Casanova", inspired by the legendary Venetian character. This spectacular collection, which I could see during Colombiamoda not only shows the different facets of Casanova, but also the strong image of women, showing a modern and androgynous trend.
I just came back from Medellin, a city of eternal spring, and I was really lucky to see this year not only the fashion week Colombiamoda, but also one of the most important cultural festivals in Colombia. Medellin Flower Festival, known as the Feria de Las Flores, is organized every year and lasts 10 days. It runs between 31th July and August 9.
Today my fourth look from Colombiamoda. I was looking for something classical and feminine with a touch of bright colour. What's better than a combination of red and black. I found that skirt last year en Oasap and I paired it with a crop top designed by my dear friend, Derenth Jimenez and a pair of black sandals. As you can see I choose wide heels, which are more stable than stilettos.
Today I would like to share my 5 favorite menswear fashion shows, that I could see during this edition of Colombiamoda. Among the collections of Ricardo Pava, Erico, Mon & Velarde, Orazco Clothing and first male line of talented designer Dario Cardenas. What one is your favorite collection?
What is a better place than Colombiamoda to support and show the best of Colombian talents. That's why on a second day I decided to go dressed by a designer Manuela Triana. I wore this beautiful checkered midi skirt inspired by the 50s and masculine tailoring, which I paired with a white shirt and vintage accessories.
Since I moved to Bogota, one of my main problems has been the difficulty of mobility. This huge city with more than 8 million inhabitants and over 500,000 number of taxis is every day more difficult to travel. So when I get the opportunity to test Uber services, I was really amazed. It is not only very comfortable, but also safe and chic way to travel.
Kika Vargas, one of the most talented designers in Colombia, for the second time participated in Colombiamoda. This time she was closing the most important fashion week and trade in Colombia. She introduced us her new collection Sakura, inspired by the clash of two very different cultures, Japan and Italy. Kika managed amazingly to combine a strong structure of garments inspired by the geishas with the attention to detail of Italian high fashion. She used vibrant colors and spring patterns, which looked stunning the catwalk full of plants and flowers.
For the second year, Johanna Ortiz showed her collection at Colombiamoda. Honestly I think it was my favourite one during all Colombian Fashion Week. I would love to own all the pieces of this collection. Colombian designer showed us a versatile collection, with pieces perfect for women of all shapes and silhouettes, that can be adopted to many styles.
Today I would love to share with you my second look at Colombiamoda. I've decided for ongoing trend, lately seen everywhere culottes and crop top, which used it in two versions sport chic with flat shoes, in tis case Adidas Superstars and at night I switched to a pair of heels.
The complete look is from ZETA, Colombian brand that I discover recently, created by designer Claritt Zighelboim, which made this year a part of The Vogue Talents Corner. Claritt is a Colombian who was born in Miami and in 2012 moved to Bogota to create her own brand.
Leal Daccarett, the talented Colombian duo, showed us again the collection to fall in love. Inspired by the bees and an imaginary journey through the Botanical Expedition of Jose Celestino Mutis, they created stunning dresses in vibrant colors and memorable textures, that took life.
This incredible collection of young colombian designer Andrés Pajón doesn't need the name, it perfectly expresses itself. Designer showed us looks and cuts typical for the 30s and 40s, elegance and smooth silhouettes. We saw transparencies, drapes and feather handled in a pastel color palette that is inspired by sunsets of Medellin: pink, gold, yellow lemon and orange. A beautiful and nostalgic collection, like a fairytail.

Here some pics with my first look at Colombiamoda, which I wore for the opening fashion show by Francesca Miranda. I decided for this stunning jumpsuit in emerald green shade from Zara and I paired it with gold and green accessories.
Today I want to share with you some of spectacular images of Jorge Duque's backstage. This Colombian designer got inspired in his S/S 2016 by the work of Juan Fernando Herrán “Espina Dorsal” and colorful paintings of Pedro Ruiz. As a result we could see designs for a vibrant, provocative and hilarious latin woman, representing the 80s. Dominating colours were: military green, aquamarine, grey, brick orange, red poppies and blue.
