It was only a year ago that I bookmarked a photo of Clémence Poésy wearing a monochromatic grey outfit and I’ve since become an avid follower of her style. Unless given an occasion to dress up, Clémence’s style feels effortless and casual in simple skinny jeans and loose fitting tops - a look I’m quite familiar with. I like that she brings out her girly, elegant style for those red carpet appearances but keeps things minimal and androgynous for her everyday looks. And I obviously love the fact that she’s equally as obsessed with layering as I am - three cheers for the approaching cooler climates so that we can all layer away!

Clémence is religiously photographed during Paris Fashion Week and I can only imagine what kind of goodies she’ll be breaking out for those street style candids! But until then, feast your eyes on some of her past look and get inspired!

Also, anyone who recognizes her from Harry Potter gets a gold star.

Style Icon: Jimi Hendrix

I’ve  been wanting to feature Jimi Hendrix as a style icon for months now, but didn’t want to do it until I felt I had a sufficient amount of rare and colored photographs (not easy to come by a la internet). But at last I’ve accumulated and created a collage worthy of posting and just in time for music festival season no less!

Jimi Hendrix’s wardrobe has to be among the top five wardrobes I’d like to raid. The jackets, the hats, the belts, the VESTS!, the bell bottoms, the jewelzzz, holy mackerel! I’d love to know how long it took him to get dressed for the day. Was it one of those situations where he huffed and puffed in front of the mirror or was it just a grab and go type of thing? Either way, there isn’t an outfit I found where he didn’t look awesome and he definitely makes me feel better about my extensive jacket collection. I mean really, is it possible to ever have enough jackets?! I think not. Now I just have to get my hands on one of those military/Sgt. Pepper jackets. Balmain S/S 2009, I’m looking at you.

Style Icon: Daisy Lowe

April 7, 2011

Daisy Lowe has been one of my style inspirations for a few years now. While I immediately fell in love with her doe eyes and shaggy fringe haircut, my obsession and love for her style followed soon there after. I relate a lot to Daisy’s style actually, because I don’t think she really has a style that can be categorized and/or labeled. One day she looks elegant and feminine, another she looks like she just stepped off the back of a Harley Davidson. While there’s always a bit of an edge to Daisy’s look, she’s entirely unpredictable and you really get the vibe that when she gets dressed in the morning it’s all about what she feels like wearing and what she feels confident in. From the red carpet to Glastonbury, she always impresses me with her sartorial choices. And she definitely has me considering a shaggier haircut…

Style Icon: Isabel Lucas

While now quite famous for her role in Transformers 2 and as a past love interest of Adrien Grenier, Isabel Lucas has been one of my style icons for quite some time. Much like Isabel I am a lover of vintage dresses but I often find their hemlines to be frumpy and unflattering, so I shorten them like nobodies business. Isabel however, manages to pull off that Little House on the Prairie look and manages to make it look both feminine and chic. When roaming the streets you’ll rarely see her wearing anything but billowy skirts and long dresses, but once she hits the red carpet she glams things up with tighter silhouettes by some of fashion’s most noteworthy designers like Marchesa, Pucci, and Chanel.

While there are some people whose wardrobes I would like to raid and others whom I’d like to go shopping with, it’s only with Isabel Lucas that I’d like to take on flea markets, thrift stores, and vintage shops. She certainly knows how to scour the racks for those one in a million pieces and you just know she has a couple of secret vintage shops where she finds only the best of the best second hand items.

But what I love most about Isabel’s style is that it’s one that I can really get behind/relate to. It’s not overly girly, it’s relaxed and comfortable, and it’s a look that transitions throughout each season just by adding or removing layers! A California girl’s dream come true!

Style Icon: Anna Dello Russo

I know, I know, me and the rest of the world, but you have to admit that if there were ever going to be a living/breathing closet equivalent to Carrie Bradshaw’s it would be Anna Dello Russo’s (which is actually a whole other apartment next to the one she lives in). Aside from the red carpet it’s pretty rare to see looks right off the runway, mainly because not all of us will look that great in an outfit that say, Hanne Gaby Odiele rocked on the catwalk. But, somehow Anna Dello Russo manages to pull of everything from ready-to-wear to couture and Rodarte to Chanel.

I call myself “the vestal of fashion” because for me fashion is a muse and you must seduce her. How? You have to feed the creative fire, so it doesn’t vanish - ADR

It’s incredible how you will almost never see her wear the same article of clothing twice and how she manages to match bits of her outfits together without looking too, for lack of a better phrase, “matchy matchy”. Granted with over 4,000 pairs of shoes and a closet that requires it’s own living space I probably wouldn’t repeat any of my outfits either. She understands and appreciates color, fabric, texture and design unlike anyone I’ve ever seen. Below I’ve put together a giant collage of some of my favorite Anna outfits, but if I had to go ahead and pick one as my number 1 favorite, I’d have to say the black lace Dolce & Gabbana dress with the red undergarments, but it’s a TOUGH CALL and I may retract that statement after posting this…

Also, rumor has it that there is an upcoming documentary on Anna following her (and her giant wardrobe) through six different cities!
