Before Carven: Amanda

Amanda Brooks before the Carven show at Jardin des Tuileries. She’s been appointed Fashion Director for Barneys NY beginning of this year and was frontrow at all of the shows here in Paris. I have always loved her effortless blend of high-end designer pieces and individual style.

Pants: Jil Sander S/S 2011, bag: Chanel, sunnies: Persol

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.

Queen of effortless cool

Alexa Chung with Burberry Prorsum patent leather bag turquoise

Now here’s a lesson on how to work this season’s COLOR trend the ‘Alexa way’: Minimize the effort and maximize the effect by lifting your winter staples (woolly sweater, black leather leggings, booties) with a pop colored shoulder bag. WOW! It’s so simple…

Met Gala 2010

The Met Gala is definitely one of the hottest and most covetted red carpet events of the year. Without doubt, there were lots of beautiful ball gowns, but I’m mostly intrigued by the more daring and unexpected looks. Voila, my very personal favourites:

Chloe Sevigny in a sublime Proenza Schouler frock


Alexa Chung rocking a Phillip Lim tuxedo


Charlotte Kemp Muhl + Sean Lennon (aka hottest couple in town) and Sasha Pivovarova, all übercool in Marni


Charlotte Gainsbourg in Balenciaga


and Les Coupines’ darling Emma Watson in a custom Burberry dress

Super Karlie


Despite her 17 years, Karlie Kloss is one of the most desired models in the industry!! She is kind of omnipresent, but still I never get tired of watching her! This month she scored two amazing editorials in Vogue UK and Teen Vogue. Although, she goes fine in very glamorous looks, I really like her in these sports inspired outfits (particularly the A.Wang pieces!!) and very natural as an “all Amercian girl”.

at Dior: les Voguettes

Today, I went to the Dior show in Jardin des Tuileries to do a bit of “street style stalking“.

I was able to capture some of my favourite Voguettes in full action:


Carine Roitfeld and Melanie Huynh from French Vogue in their all black “uniforms”…


…the always impeccably styled Giovanna Battaglia from Vogue Uomo…


…the über-cool Emmanulle Alt from French Vogue in her great Isabel Marant leopard coat…


…and Anna dello Russo from Vogue Nippon in a totally over the top, sparkly feather coat!

Stay tuned for some other great impressions from the Dior show!
Happy Fashion Week!

Alexa’s style diary


Alexa Chung is one of our favourite it-girls and always a source of inspiration when it comes to quirky and creative dressing. Now, thanks to Vogue UK, we have the possibility to follow Alexa’s style choices every day for a whole month. Unfortunatelly, the quality of the pics is not the best, yet they offer us a little glimpse into Alexa’s daily fashion choices. We wanna see more of that!

Garance Dore

Garance Doré is one of our all time favourite bloggers!  She has an incredible talent to take pictures of girls, which underline their inner beauty. And Garance has a great sense of humour. We LOVE her stories about her newest style addictions, little fashion emergencies and all the other girl talk. So it has become one of our favourite daily routines, to check her blog in the morning! Garance has been doing some great work and has been rewarded for that: recently, she launched a limited collection of T-shirts with the GAP (which sadly sold out immediately) and is now working very closely with French Vogue (could there be a better match?) to do some behind the scenes coverage.

Taking our high appreciation for Garance’s work, you can certainly imagine that we had the most surreal moment ever, when we met her and the Sartorialist in the Metro on the way to the Chloe Show, during Fashion Week. Garance was stunning in person! So natural, and sweet and very chic wearing her short- sleeved Max Mara coat. So we talked to her – actually Garance did most of the talking, we were so taken by her charisma that we could merely sit there and listen. We were even too excited to ask for a picture (sooo stupid of us!!).

Well, I promise I stop obsessing now…but let me still show you some of my very favourite pictures by Garance…

Fresh and wild



Yesterday, I got myself the October Issue of i-D magazine. It’s such a good one… featuring the most coveted fashion crowd out there right now. I literally could not get myself to put it aside, before reading the whole thing (so I’m running on a sleep deficit now…).

One of the best contributions in the issue is this editorial with favourite model Dree Hemmingway, photographed by Alasdair McLellan. I LOVE these pictures: Dree looks so natural and fragile and beautiful, plus she is wearing lots of Isabel Marant…the whole mood is so special.

Live from PARIS: The Chloé A-list

Our first stop today was the famous Jardin des Tuileries and we got the fashion crowd OVERDOSE right away…It was a beautiful Indian-Summer-kind-of day and we had lots of fun hanging out outside the Chloé show and spotting streetstyles from our favorite fashionistas. Here’s a selection of the most stylish GIRLS in Paris. Be inspired!

Do you know Kasia?

KASIA SMUTNIAK is the face of Armani’s new fragrance IDOLE d’ ARMANI. Just another blonde model from Eastern Europe who landed a fragrance campaign? Certainly more than that! In the current French VOGUE issue she shows us how to pull off a red Armani-leather blazer (used to be on top of my personal list of pieces that can never possibly look good on anyone!): Mix it with a simple Acne tee plus vintage jeans & jewelry et VOILÀ!
