SHOOTING: how to style your perfect horse racing look.

[en] The new horse racing season in Baden-Baden/Iffezheim will start soon, beginning with the Springtime Meeting from the 30th Mai until the 3rd of June 2018.

Dresscode or not?

Despite the popular stereotype of women with broad-brimmed hats and cocktail dresses there isn't a real dresscode which enables you to visit a horse racing. 80% of the visitors stick to their leisure-time style. You should feel comfortable – that's the main thing.

Nevertheless it's fun to dress up in an elegant cocktail dress or a nice suit. Ladies can of course complete their elegant horse racing look with a complement hat. Especially when it comes to highly remunerated races (for example at the first Grand Prix race taking place on the 2nd of September 2018 or at the Great Week taking place from the 25th of August until the 2nd of September 2018).

Generally speaking we can conclude that no other social event (associated with sports) has a greater focus on fashion – especially in terms of elegant ladies robed in cocktail dresses and their amazing aigrettes.
Especially if you think of the LONGINES PRIZE FOR ELEGANCE taking place on the 2nd of September 2018 where the most elegant female visitor of the final racing day is receiving a prize.

160 years of horse racing in Baden-Baden/Iffezheim.

2018 marks a special year in terms of horse racing in Iffezheim and Baden-Baden. Its racecourse is going to turn 160 this year!

What better reason could there be to dress up? So get out your most beautiful dresses and matching hat and come to Baden-Baden to celebrate this special occasion. There's no limit in getting creative with your headgear – no matter if it's small and elegant or big and splendorous: anything goes!

BEAUTY: how to keep a beautiful, radiant skin.

[en] When I was little my mum already told me that there is a price to pay for beauty. It doesn't have to cost a fortune, though. Nevertheless you should always stick to quality before quantity and be mindful of only using skincare products containing high-quality ingredients – in the end you live your whole life in this very skin.

The women in my family passed this knowledge down from generation to generation.
My grandmother used the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv face cream nearly her entire life – and by the age of nearly 90 you still cannot spot any wrinkles on her beautiful face. And also my mother looks much younger than you might expect. When I was in my early Twens some people mistook her as my older sister – I'm not joking! This year she turned 70 and also doesn't look her age. Her skin takes years off her biological age.

And if you think it's only the good asian genes which lead to this young and radiant skin then you're miscalculating something. I have already seen loads of asian women looking much older than the women en famille.

Of course it's not only a matter of the perfect skin care. You also should also be mindful of other things, such as:
  • clean eating
  • drinking enough water (2-3 litres a day are perfect)
  • not smoking (i managed to stop smoking in '17 and it was one of the best decisions of my life)
Nevertheless the right skin care products are essential for keeping a radiant, beautiful skin.
