Mad about Madrid

Model, influencer and Madrileño Eugenia Silva – star of our autumn campaign shoot – gives us the inside track on her home city.

The face of, among others, Dolce & Gabbana and Oscar de la Renta, Eugenia Silva is a Spanish supermodel and mother with a degree in law and an Instagram following of 265,000. Here, she shares her top spots for food, beauty and travel in Madrid.

My top table

You can’t beat Cuenllas (cuenllas.es) on Ferraz Street in the heart of Madrid. The mushroom risotto is sublime and they have the best delicatessen in town. I also adore anything by Cristina Oria (cristinaoria.com), including the chef-restaurateur’s latest venture at Las Rozas Village. Her chicken curry is pure heaven and she offers a convenient catering service which I always call on for special occasions.

My dream bed

Elegant, modern and supremely comfortable with superb service and a great location in the popular Salamanca district, Bless Hotel Madrid (blesscollectionhotels.com) has it all. It also boasts one of the best terrace views in the city – and delicious cocktails to enjoy it with.

My best beauty tip

For treatments, manicures and heavenly products you’ll find me at The Beauty Concept (thebeautyconcept.com) on Ortega y Gasset street. The therapists there are true miracle workers.

My ultimate escape

When I want to lose myself for a few hours I spend an evening at the Thyssen-Bornemisza (museothyssen.org). Madrid’s national museum beautifully connects my two great loves – fashion and art – and feeds my soul every time I visit.
