She is just perfect Paris-chic. Those boots, the jacket, the hair and her smile, it all goes so well together. I love how she picks up the color of the shoes with the shirt that is peaking out. The light in Paris is absolutely stunning.

The Row’s SS10 lookbook is amazing. It’s photographed by Hanna Liden , styled by Danielle Nachmani, hair by Kevin Ryan and make-up by Jeanine Lobell. What a great team. And who is this beautiful girl Ursula?! Her hairdo is so refreshing, short with big slouchy curls. But I do have to get used to those spaghetti straps, it feels to early to bring them back just yet.
She is a photographer and we see each other a lot during fashion month, I wanted to tell her how beautiful she looked but sadly I don’t speak japanese and she does not speak english, and it was hard to mime it but I think she got it. She looks so effortless and so put together in a very mysterious way.
I was at the CFDA/Vogue fashion fund dinner as I posted earlier. Vogue invited me to blog for them at the event. To even be in the same room as so many highly creative people is indescribable. A few days before the dinner Virgina Smith had helped me find a dress from their racks of styling at the office – THE office… I chose one by Yigal Azrouel. The fabric of the dress was pretty amazing, It seemed like it was made to have too much fabric and then had been pressed back onto the dress. To be at the Vogue office was exactly as in the movie ” The September Issue” and almost like “Carrie” in “Sex and the City” and a little bit similar as “The Devil wears Prada”. Oh and my nail polish by OPI in the color “Go On Green” matched the walls, so in Vogue!
Alber Elbaz held the keynote speech and I wished he would have spoken longer. It was so inspiring listening to his stories, like when he was a young man starting out in Paris, working for Yves Saint Laurent. One day he met Yves on the street, red faced and visibly stressed. Alber asked if Yves was nervous about his couture show the day after, upon which he replied, ”Yes, Alber, you are only as good as your next show”. Goosebump moment!
The winner was Sophie Théallet won $200 000, and runners-up both Monique Pean and Patrik Ervell got $50 000 to get started. They will all meet regularly with a team of business mentors for guidance. I look forward to see them in the future, we all have seen how far last years winner Alexander Wang has come.
I am against animals bred and killed solely for their fur. That’s why I always wanted a sheepskin fur, cause how many sheep are killed for the use of their meat and the fur just gets thrown away for nothing? Except for Ikea’s “Ludde”. At least get a use of everything since they are already being killed. The coat is Margiela and is a re-design of a 60’s coat, my pants are Ksubi, bag Yvonne Koné for Bonne Gout, shoes by Aldo, silver feather ring by “By Me”, turqouis ring and snake ring are vintage.
This is why I had bleached my eyebrows the other day. I had equally fun as a blonde as I normally have being my brunette self. But it was kind of crazy seeing myself looking so different. Dusan Reljin shot these for my vegan and eco-friendly lipstick that I made in collaboration with Zanzuel. The styling is done by the amazing Rebecca Palmer. I put links in the text here but it doesn’t show unless you slide your cursor across and it.
How I love you Catherine Baba! Your style is always inspiring, fun and unique. It looks like you just stepped out a movie and into the fashion scene in front of the Rodarte show.
Unbelievable sad news, the Korean model Daul Kim took her own life in her apartment in Paris, and was found yesterday morning. She was such a successful model, had impressive style and a dark and beautiful blog. It’s only now I read through it and all the darkness makes sense. I never met her but I have seen her several times and she had a very interesting thing about her. I’m sure she would have become very successful in what ever she decided to do after modelling, if she only would have gotten the right help instead of seeing suicide as an option. My thoughts goes out to her family and friends. Let’s make sure we take good care of each other.
