BUY! SELL! NO, WAIT – THE OPPOSITE

I have been on the fence about these Celine bags, I wasn’t sure what I thought about the parts sticking out on the sides. But seeing it hang so unpretentiously on Josefine Nielsen’s arm changed my mind. It’s really beautiful.

BARNEYS + HANNELI

I did a shoot for Barneys last week and it just came out today! It was fun to be able to check out all the coats and try to figure out what I will get for my wardrobe this winter. I’m leaning towards the Lanvin or Margiela, or perhaps the Rochas. Which one would you get?

PONCHOS

I just shot a few different ponchos for Vogue.com, to figure out how to wear them without looking like I’m straight out of a western movie. I was surprised how warm they all were. This one is by Boy. by Band of Outsiders, bag by Phillip Lim and shirt by Acne. You can see the story here.

THE BEAT OF HER OWN FASHION DRUM

If you’ve read my blog for a while you know how much I love Ada Kokosar’s style, she marches to the beat her own fashion drum and always kills it. I love the combination of the long narrow skirt combined with the straight and boxy shirt, adding the animal printed loafers ties it all so nicely together.

FINALLY FALL!

I love to get pieces for my wardrobe that can be used for different looks, like this amazingly cut Acne top that I also wore here. The more looks I can squeeze out of one piece of clothing the better. It gives each look a more personal feel, rather than putting it away after wearing it just a few times. I wonder if we’ll ever feel comfortable wearing the same dress on different occasions, with the same crowd? I’m wearing Rag & Bone Plum colored jeans, turtleneck by Majestic Filatures, sunglasses by Karen Walkershoes and clutch is by Alexander Wang.

LOVE IT LOVER!

This incredible dress is by Australian brand Lover, you may remember that I have another variation by them that is long in the back, which I wore here. The fun thing about lace is that is so easy to pair up with pieces in sturdier fabrics, like heavy knit or thick felt jackets. After the Indian summer during Paris fashion week I’m ready for fall and layering.

GREY SCALE

Vanessa Traina is working the grey/silver/pastel-peach nude palette like no other. And I really love her hairdo cause it looks so perfectly effortless, I think she might have used a curling iron in the front pieces and some nutritional oil to gather the ends. What to you think? I really like that it doesn’t look perfectly healthy in a controlled way, less perfect makes it interesting.

MY AMAZING PANTS

These pants are pretty great. They have a pressed fold in the front which makes them that much more interesting. They were a bit too long to wear without heels -I don’t like it when pants bulk up at the bottom – so I hemmed them with double sided tape and it works perfectly. I always have a rescue kit handy where I store safety pins, double sided tape, clamps etc. You never know when you have to do a last minute alteration. Pants by Phillip Lim, Bag by Mulberry, top by Acne, shades by Rag & Bone and shoes by Prada.

PIERRE BALMAIN SS12

I shot these yesterday when I got to see the brand new underline of Balmain, Pierre Balmain. The collection was very cool and French, with perfectly fitted jeans and lots of beautiful jackets.It was very Emmanuelle Alt – which isn’t that surprising considering her husband, Frank Durand, is the creative director for the brand.

I’M SO IN VOGUE!

I couldn’t believe it when I was told I was going to be photographed for US Vogue by Patrick Demarchelier – the same month he shot me for Net-a-porter! Tabitha Simmons brought this incredible dress from Calvin Klein Collection for me to wear. Alice Lane did such a great, subtle makeup on me, and Teddy Charles who was going to do my hair said I was “Vogue ready out of bed” so he didn’t need to touch it. Got to love that! Lovely Lynne Yaeger interviewed me about how I wear my jewelry and what pieces I like. I thought about it and realized I haven’t worn earrings in probably 5 years. The few pieces I do wear are small, mostly bracelets and a necklace here and there. I rarely pile on lots of it at the same time. How you wear your favorite pieces? I’d love to know.
