We have known Greta for a long time. Not personally, but we do follow her footsteps. We have always liked her fresh, warm and spontaneous personality. Beyond her French-style charisma, one can see that her concerns have to do with the good life in general. She likes to look after herself, eat well, take photographs and, above all, to do so in good company – she adores her girlfriends! This is all obvious from her Instagram account, where she is always sharing good times with her people. The daughter of an actor and a writer, Greta lives art in her very essence ever since she was small, and you can see it in her gaze and in the lively way she responds to every question we ask.


We improvise a meeting. The film La hija de un ladrón (The Thief’s Daughter) will shortly be presented at the Most Festival and we take the opportunity of having her at home to interview her for #fantasticwomen. She is charmed to receive us, in an informal yet natural way, casual yet authentic. No posturing or pretence.


Don’t let her pass you by, she is Greta Fernandez and in this interview (or conversation with a drink) you will fall in love with her, just like the whole world is falling in love with her character Sara, in Belén Funes’ first film.



Greta, what is your daily life like? How do you organize yourself?

I don’t have a very clear routine, because a lot depends on whether or not I’m working. For example, just now I’m promoting the film, so my routine is not having time for anything. But for me that is the wonderful thing about my work, having times when I’m not doing anything (and enjoying the pleasure of dolce far niente) or also taking time to train, spend more time at home (I’m a homebody), I love reading, watching films… also arrange get-togethers with my girlfriends. I moved to Madrid recently, to the Lavapiés district and, if I have time, I’m slowly discovering it. And that is my day-to-day if I’m not working.


And if you’re working?

I like to thoroughly study the character I’m playing. I really enjoy the creation process, it is so creative if you give it your all. The moment you give her a voice and watch how she moves and walks, bringing to life a character that has no relation to yourself, that is a lovely process. Even though you come up against your insecurities and your fears, you have to face yourself a bit… The process is very tough but very cool, and when I’m not working I miss it.


What inspires you?

I am hugely inspired by my girlfriends, they are a great source of inspiration. In fact, when working with characters and emotions, anything can inspire you. Walking, strolling… you watch how people live and express themselves.


And your passion other than film?

I like lots of things: writing, taking photos… above all, writing. I know that one day I’ll write a screenplay or direct a film. It’s something I’ll do eventually.


You mentioned earlier that you’ve started training… Which healthy habits do you recommend?

My mother has always educated me about healthy eating. She followed a macrobiotic diet and always instilled it in me at home. So I really like to cook healthy food and also look after my skin with my creams, my face masks, my baths… and my moments of relaxation are sacrosanct. And yes, I’ve started to work on routines with a professional trainer who helps me to keep up when I’m really busy. I started before filming La hija de un ladrón and I was fit to withstand the six tough weeks of shooting.


And what types of exercises are they exactly?

Well, I’ve started to do boxing! (laughing)


Professionally, what type of actor are you?

I believe I’ve achieved a good balance between being a relaxed person and a good professional. During the creative process, in La Hija de un Ladrón, I had a very tough time but I also thoroughly enjoyed it, because I’m not the sort of person to beat myself up either, or immerse myself in the character 24/7. I’m good at separating work and personal life. I think I’m serious about my work, but I’m also quite airy.


And on a personal level, what is Greta like?

(This question is answered by her friend Maty Chevrière, who accompanies her during the presentation of “La hija de un ladrón” at the Most Festival).

Greta is a person of unique inner peace. She has a very interesting way of being thoughtful and putting herself in somebody else’s skin. She can give a completely different vision of how things are viewed. She is a very empathetic person.


Do you think that’s true about you?

A bit… (she answers timidly)


What has been your most Mistinguett experience?

I think it was in my only brush with the theatre, in the play Amanda T. I acquired a lot of self-assurance in acting, because I found many resources in myself that I didn’t know about, and I felt comfortable on stage, which also makes you feel really powerful. Theatre, unlike film, gives you a unique presence. And I think it was in that moment that my work as an actor clicked for me.


For you, who would be today’s Mistinguett? Who would be your most Mistinguett role model?

I’m not much into role models (laughs), but I admire many actors, such as Isabelle Huppert, Marion Cotillard, many female directors… But in truth I don’t have a preferred one.



A time of day for drinking cava?

A colour?

A film?
“Harold and Maude” by Hal Ashby

A song?
“Ne me quitte pas” by Jacques Brel.

A book?
“Momo” by Michael Ende

A handbag must?
Lip salve!



There are some lovely afternoons! Honestly, we adore attending these… sweet moments! That’s it. Never better said. Sweet because we are in the most beautiful of places: the new Anthropologie shop in Barcelona (have you seen the cute things they have?); you are surrounded by fantastic people (hugs to our friends from XXL Comunicación); and on top of that you are given a gastronomic photography workshop imparted by Carolina Ferrer herself (besides being a top professional, you are absolutely charming!). Could one possibly ask for more? Yes, everything well-paired with Mistinguett Rosé. Talk about feeling good! J


Carolina taught us all her tricks for taking gastronomy photos with a mobile phone. On every level, like a true professional! On an artistic level, she showed us how to make a composition and create a still life shot from above (dear instagrammers, you know that this has long been the trend in food photography, don’t you?). On a technical level, she showed us tricks on how to frame, focus and play with exposure. She also showed us a few apps that will be a huge help in editing photos before posting them.


We were then able to create our own still lifes and to make our compositions with the Anthropologie items we had at our disposal, plus flowers, lots of fresh flowers! Look at the photos… Mistinguett had to be there in the creations, pink looked so good in the glasses!



We are framing that afternoon as a lovely souvenir. And we hope to have more like it! We’ll tell you all about it…


Hugs and good health!



On Thursday 25th, Mistinguett attended the presentation of the new MELICH brand of garments. Its designers set up a pop-up show in a gorgeous space, Ó! Estudio in Barcelona’s Gracia district.


The three young entrepreneurs have launched their sustainable clothing brand with great enthusiasm and, above all, with a lot of taste. A pretty and very delicate swimwear collection in on-trend neutral colours. Now you know, organic colours are in vogue!


Sustainable fashion, organic colours and our vegan products… Mistinguett had to be there! We love to nudge new brands along and bring a touch of joy with our bubbles to so many jitters and so much enthusiasm. It’s a great pleasure! As you know, Mistinguett is a tribute to women who fight to make their dreams happen, and the right thing is to be there, on the spot, whenever we can. 😉


Good luck girls!


If you are reading this article, are an entrepreneur and are starting out on a new project … You have our support! Contact us and let’s discuss things freely. J



You can tell at a glance that Maria Xinxó is clearly a fantastic woman. Her cat-like gaze, her almost-platinum, curly hair (ok, straight today!). Her dress sense is ever-changeable yet impeccable. Her smile is always followed by laughter. She is undiluted expressiveness. A touchstone in journalism in Catalonia, she is a successful co-presenter, jointly with Albert Om, in the Rac1 programme, Islàndia, a ratings leader in its time slot. Maria is a follower of Mistinguett ever since she discovered it at the Sitges Film Festival and became an ambassador for our iconic bottle, La Plume.

Want to be imbued with her optimism? Read on!

What is your day to day like?

My day to day is quite chaotic (she laughs) in that it involves so many hours and it’s difficult to switch off when you do a programme like Islàndia, which looks for human stories and not those of celebrities or big names. So I start working at 11 am and don’t leave until the programme ends at 8.30 pm. Then we have a meeting with the team until 9 pm or more… so I’m working all day and even in my free time, weekends, while I’m sleeping… I’m still thinking of content for the programme.

Which means you adore your work…

Yes I do. If I didn’t… it would be impossible. People say it’s a vocation, and that’s what it is. I did the scientific baccalaureate and circumstantially ended up studying journalism. The truth is that, if you don’t like it, if you’re not enjoying yourself, it’s not worth it because you put so many hours into it. In my case it is certainly worth it because I like it so much.

How do you organize yourself?

With post-its, making lists… I walk around with lists all day to get myself organized, crossing off what I’ve done and jotting down ideas that pop into my head. If I have some free time, I make a lot of headway in one topic so as to have enough documentation for later. There is no other secret: making lists, crossing stuff off and “checking, checking, checking…”.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by the views we have here at Rac1. I think it’s wonderful to work with this light because it is life-enhancing, I even have the feeling of flying… of thinking freely.

And your passion?

Radio, communication, people, stories… sharing. I am very active on social media, particularly Instagram, and I believe the basis for this channel is exactly that: sharing. Sharing your day to day, things that sometimes look silly but which people like, and I love seeing what others are doing, the places they go… And in the end you learn so many things you didn’t know.

And laughter! I don’t remember a day I didn’t laugh. Even on the most dismal days, in tough moments, humour will always find a way out. It is a perfect relief valve.

Do you have any healthy habits?

I recently started going to the gym, which was a major pending issue with me… I had tried it several times but couldn’t sustain it, I would pay the fees and not go… Until I joined a gym that’s right next to my workplace and is perfect for me, because otherwise it would be impossible and the usual would happen. So the minute I’m out of here that’s where I go. I have a personal trainer who really motivates me to continue. He is very encouraging. I also go to group sessions with other people, which forces me to follow the pace of the others, and we’re back to the topic of sharing… The truth is that I feel so much better every time I work out. I hope I can make it last!

Over and above a style… We would like to know what it is that makes Maria Xinxó stand out?

I think the secret is that I do what I like. There are days when I really dress up and others when I like an informal look. Sometimes people are surprised: “Hey, what a rock chick!” or “You’re quite bold today, aren’t you?”. There are days when I’ll wear 6-inch heels and next day I’ll wear trainers, and I feel comfortable in both. The same with my hair, I don’t have a specific style: my hair is curly but today I wear it straight. I don’t like to be pigeonholed. I’ll wear whatever I feel like that day. That’s the fun of who I am. Nothing is premeditated.

Which has been your most Mistinguett experience?

Mistinguett for me is elegance. La Plume is exactly that, elegance. And my Mistinguett experience was the party at which La Plume was presented at the Sitges Film Festival. It was a lovely event, and very cutting-edge. There was such an interesting mix of styles. There was something modern, something elegant, also risky… I believe that all this is given and defined by Mistinguett.

You already know about the real Mistinguett, you know that we pay tribute to her and to all women who fight for their dream. Right now, who would be your reference, your Mistinguett?

I have no doubt at all. A few months ago I discovered a remarkable woman. Her name is Clara Peya, she is a composer and pianist. This girl, like the woman Mistinguett, is a total risk-taker. Her shows are unlike anything I’ve normally seen. She is very special, very feminist. In her work everything she says makes sense: the lyrics of her last album are very militant and in her show, which is at Sala Beckett right now, she was so compelling that she left me speechless. Clara has obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and together with her sister, who is a dancer, they depict this reality in a truly lovely way, doing away with any stigma. There are so many taboos nowadays when speaking of mental illness. But she breaks every one of those taboos. This is why, for me, this woman is a reference in many aspects.


A time of day for drinking cava.
I would say any time, but let’s say… mid-afternoon.

A colour.

A film.
“Moulin Rouge”.

A song.
“Elephant Love Medley” from Moulin Rouge. It is a fabulous mix of songs.

A book.
The last one I’ve read, “L’art de portar gavardina (The Art of Wearing a Trench Coat)” by Sergi Pàmies, which really made an impact because there is so much truth in it.

Something indispensable in your handbag.
Lip salve. Ok, and my mobile! (she laughs out loud) The thing is, it’s never in my handbag, it’s always in my hand.

And for you, what is the correct thing?
For me the correct thing is to be happy. To smile. To have fun with what you do. And the incorrect thing as well.




I wouldn’t know how to describe everything we experienced last week at this winter edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion. Days filled with a lot of fashion, certainly, but also some fabulous people who enjoyed Mistinguett Sparkling both at our catwalk show and in the VIP lounge after every show.


I have to confess that before the event I wasn’t sure whether you would all fall for the Mistinguett attitude, but that’s the point! Taking risks and daring to do different things. Our catwalk show was crazy wonderful. People never stopped parading, taking photos, selfies, putting on makeup and, above all, a lot of laughter and bubbles. And by the way.. what a discovery! It looks like most of you were fans of Mistinguett Rosé. It all went!


Wednesday… was the day… Mistinguett Plume the queen of the catwalk! Oscar León presented his new collection, Plume Noir, inspired in our bottle, surrounded by feathers, in his own inimitable style, elegant and quoting phrases from our manifesto… We could not have felt more identified with the message.


La Plume, yes. Our iconic product. A tribute to Mistinguett, the most important French showgirl of all time. A ground-breaking woman whose legs were insured for more than 500,000 francs in the 1920s, who pioneered dancing among the public or using feathers in her shows.


An emotionally charged catwalk show, with a lot of female POWER, culminating in a sundowner that turned into a party with music by Nuria Scarp. We had the good fortune of meeting and sharing the Mistinguett attitude with journalists, bloggers, sommeliers and fashion enthusiasts such as Ruth Troyano, Meritxell Falgueras of Wines and the City and Gloria Vallès of Winestyle Travel.


In short, now all we have in our heads is the summer edition, being able to share more good times with the people we met and who are now devotees of the brand. We have so much to celebrate!


Until next time… which will be soon!


Kisses and lots of bubbles!





Hey, watch the video and you’ll see what a great time we had… Can you see yourself there? 😉



Last Friday we were partying again, this time in uptown Barcelona, to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Elena Estaun jewellery shop.

This brand has the most gorgeous things, I would have bought everything! And there we were with Mistinguett Rosé, mingling with people, jewels and bubbles.

A fantastic evening with a live performance while people tried on jewels, toasted with Mistinguett and said sweet nothings to each other.

As a good foodie, I adore the pairings of our cava with jewels… hmmmmmm… a match made in heaven!


There are secrets that are worth waiting for to be discovered. They are the kind of mystery that makes the innocence of life flower inside of you… And that is what happened to us at Secret Vida. We knew what we went for: to share out some fantastic bubbles among the people who attended a wonderful venue, Finca Mas Solers. But little more! Not even we knew which groups would appear on stage…

In a nutshell: we had two fantastic days during which people greatly enjoyed our Brut Rosé both at the Festival’s welcome event and once inside the site, where they could also ask for Brut mini bottles… So many people discovered this fun and easy way to drink cava!

As the groups revealed themselves, the atmosphere turned increasingly festive, the music was ramped up and people just kept on dancing. And there we were, among the bubbles and some fantastic people.

Now we can only think of the Vida Festival 2019, which will signal the start of summer and a chance to again celebrate Vida and life together! ☺

Let’s Vida!
Let’s #mistinguettfantastic!


We’re so nervous! Today we are collaborating for the first time with Extraordinaria, a community of entrepreneurial women who want to live on their talent. We think it’s a fantastic match, because Mistinguett represents many of the things they are championing.
Real women with great ideas who are very keen to carry them out, just like Mistinguett did in the past, and she went on to become the most important showgirl of all time.
And there we will be, joining them and filling their encounter with bubbles and magic, this time with our mini bottles.
We love the idea of informalizing cava, of drinking it casually from the bottle. Why not? We feel it is a defiant yet glamorous thing to do.

Let’s raise a toast, ladies, let’s toast to a world filled with talent and Extraordinary women!
