My guest blogger this week is the fabulous Victor de Monaco and he is contributing a lifestyle blog, interviewing the stunningly beautiful Star of Monaco, Victoria Silvstedt.
I can’t wait to read all about Victoria and hope you enjoy it too! Let me know what you think. First of all here is a little introduction to my fellow blogger Victor. The blogging world is full of interesting, dynamic and talented people and I love getting to know them.

A sit-down with supermodel Victoria Silvstedt:
When I go through Victoria Silvstedt’s Instagram page, the first phrase that pops up in my mind is “oh la dolce vita.”
A jetsetter who is always flying from the South of France, to New York and other fabulous destinations, Victoria is not your typical beauty. After gracing more than 500 magazine covers, Victoria ventured into acting, TV hosting and fashion design. She has also released a music album and starred in her very own reality show on E! Entertainment Television.
From Monaco, her new home, I had a quick chat with the Principality’s fashionista Victoria Silvstedt.
Victoria, you are definitely the queen of multitasking (acting, singing, TV hosting, etc.) But out of all, what job is the closest to your heart?
Well, let me just say that is singing is quite fun, but I am definitely not a singer. It was an offer from EMI Records and an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. Shooting movies both in the United Sates and Italy was an adventure as I spent weeks and months on movie sets. My E! reality show was fun because the camera was following me as I lived my daily life. But for me, the action is all in television, and I live for action. Hosting shows on Swedish, French and Italian TV is something I enjoy and is very fulfilling.
Going back to your style, tell me more about your fashion rules and guidelines?
I don’t really apply a general rule. I love to mix and match. For instance, you could see me wearing a Zara skinny jeans with a Balmain jacket and an Hermès bag. Of course, because I live in Monaco, I have to be always dressed up. Also, I do follow a lot of instagram bloggers to catch up on the latest trends.
So how is your diet and beauty regimen like?
First of all I love to eat. I am not your green juices 24/7 kind of girl. I must have a desert everyday and especially chocolate. And what is a night like without a glass of wine? However, I try to avoid eating carbs and especially before a photo-shoot. I also try to limit my amount of red meat intake. I guess you can describe my diet as a Mediterranean wholesome and vegetable-based diet.
As for my physique, I try to take a lot of vitamins for my hair and skin. And I love working out outdoors like doing some yoga and pilates every now and then. I prefer to go running outside rather than to workout at the gym.
Finally, what are some must have-items that every woman NEEDS to have in her closet?
High heels! They always add some oomph and make a woman’s outfit look sexier no matter what she’s wearing. Also, a good pair of jeans and of course a cocktail dress. I mean you never know when you get a last minute invitation. And a Birkin or a Kelly bag, I mean why not?
Thank you Victoria and see you around in Monaco.
