#PFW: Mixed Media at Dries van Noten

Dries van Noten prints

My favorite off-catwalk style so far! I love how this stylish Dries van Noten show-goer expertly mixes different prints, colors and materials. By the way, a super-smart VOGUE editor once said ‘If you can’t match it, CLASH it!’. Remember that when you are desperate in front of your closet;-). X

#PFW: models off-duty

Hanneli Mustaparta

Wide-legged pants and tank tops on Hanneli and her friend. Perfect for the late-summer heat here in PARIS!

Model off-duty at Dries van Noten

Mini leather shorts and a lose-fit white silk top. Simple. Casual. Cool.

Red pants/jeans/corduroys are really having a moment here in Paris. Got a feeling we’ll be seeing them a lot this winter!

Later, babes!

In the backseat with Kate Moss

In the backseat Kate Moss wedding

Vogue US just revealed an inside look at THE fashion wedding of the year with a collection of amazing and partially never-seen-before shots by no other than superstar photographer Mario Testino. You HAVE to check this out! It’s gonna be the new benchmark for a dream wedding, seriously! My favourite take? The above is an hommage to Mick & Bianca Jagger’s backseat wedding portrait from 1971. Major!

Oh and the bridemaids line-up wasn’t bad either! From left: Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Jess Hallett, Kate Moss, Rosemary Ferguson.

Maison Michel Hiver

I’m in love with the lookbook of the new Maison Michel winter collection, featuring Sasha Pivovarova, Anna Calvi and favourite French actress Clemene Poesy, all captured by Karl Lagerfeld.

As you can see its ALL about the right head accessory! I mean how CUTE are those fur & pearl ear muffs?? ;)

Creative director Laetitia Crahay, who  also designs Chanel accessories and jewelry, really does the best heats and headbands…if it just wasn’t for the high price tag! So better start saving up, or go Vintage/ DIY!

Vintage Cannes

No question, this year’s Cannes red carpet looks are quite stunning…just think of Diane Kruger in that sparkling, 90′s inspired Calvin Klein number

Still, nothing quite matches the glamour of the old days at the French Riviera. So I did a little research in the Cannes festival archives..:

BrigitteBardot 56

Rumi for Ralph Lauren

Favourite blogger Rumi Neely and boyfriend Colin in a short film noir for Ralph Lauren’s Big Pony Fragrance #2.

Bon, what is there left to say…isn’t it every girl’s secret phantasy to star in a perfume ad, alongside your hot ” agent” boyfriend…?

American INDIAN

vogue spain cover april 2011

Vogue Spain April issue.

OMG, I just LOVE the cover shoot they did on the ‘American Indian’ trend with Toni Garrn. Spanish Vogue is simply amazing. Am currently trying to figure out how to get my hands on as much Native-inspired jewelry as possible to recreate the look. Taking this Isabel Marant necklace to start with:

Friday inspirations: Milan

Can’t believe it’s Friday again/finally! Time flies. Just one more week until SPRING BREAK! I am escaping to one of my favourite places in the world: Milano (the capital of CHICISTAN). What are your plans?


Garance's New Shoes

This picture of Garance’s new heels reminds me of Milan so much! Probably because camouflage prints and Prada heels are essential components of the Milanese signature style;-).

This mini version of the Chloé Elsie bag belongs to Aura Sansone, fashion editor at Vogue Nippon and honorary citizen of Chicistan.

If Chic-istan is a place on earth, Viviana Volpicella is its first lady (and Scott Schuman is her paparazzo). The best thing about any of her looks? The SMILE :-). Simply stunning.

MK signature style

Sunnies: Rayban Clubmaster, tee: The Row, bag: Proenza Schouler PS1, watch: Rolex

Clutch: Miu Miu, belt: vintage


Clutch: Miu Miu, tee: American Apparel, shoes: Christian Louboutin


Boots & bag: Balenciaga, hoodie: American Apparel (men’s section), sunnies: Dior


Sharing some of my MK Olsen favourites. I can’t believe how old some of these pictures are! But still her look feels so relevant. From the XL beach waves to the multigringed hands and those slouchy tops with heels – she is definitely a modern icon. And will inspire the style of generations to come.

Off to Berlin for the weekend.

Have a good time out in the sun!
