A true fashionista....

... has an eye for the details
... wear the high heels no one else can take
... never compromise, whether regarding weather, temperature or any other factors
... doesn't let age be an obstacle

Face of 2009.... and 2010?

One of the most sought-after models this year have been Lara Stone. She's been everywhere, on all the big covers and shows. Currently she's starring in an amazing fashion shoot in Dazed and Confused's new "Blood and flesh" issue. She's one of several models that now emerge as "the new model" - a different body type from the models we've seen the last few years, for instance Kate Moss, Gemma Ward and Natasha Poly. The trend has gone from skinny androgynous to a fuller figure. Maybe this will continue in 2010? Stone is at least my new favourite model, with her awkward walking, amazing body and a big gap between her front teeth. 


A few items I'm craving right now from swedish brand Gina Tricot. All mostly black!

Underwear as outerwear

Lingerie was all over the catwalks for SS/10, and not just on Victoria Secrets. A lot of designers used underwear as outerwear, for instance Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbanna and Antonio Berardi. They've all done so very elegantly, by keeping the colours neutral and giving it a soft look, rather than a trashy one. The key is to pair a silk camisole with trousers and long jackets, so that you don't bare too much. Keep the make-up to a minium as to avoid looking more Courtney Love than old Hollywood (There's nothing wrong with looking like Courtney by the way, just make sure you know what signals you are sending out.)

But for partying you can go all out. I love the L.A-look that's popped up on a lot of streetstyle-blogs the last year. Black lace, bodys, dark make-up and messy hair, paired with a fake furcoat. That's how I wanna party this winter.
