This is not your average school-run-look, not even an average look in general; whenever I get to wear Chanel, I feel so not-average. It’s extremely special to wear these pieces, over and over again. And I don’t even mind that at the end of the day, these beautiful pieces have to return to the press office, because – at the end of the day, too – I’m here to inspire you, not to grow your desires, and leave you with the feeling of jealousy, over a pair of boots.
Last week I received a comment from one of my Instagram followers on a photo in which I was wearing the Chanel Fall/Winter 2017-2018 pre-collection boots in wine red: “Another pair of Chanel boots!”. I get that, because it’s not the first time you’ve seen me sporting a pair of these extravagant Mademoiselle booties. But truth is – and you must know by now – I work closely with beautiful brands like Chanel, and my job is – like that of a stylist for a magazine – to show you how to wear the runway in real life, or which trends to take-away from the new season. So, in fact, these booties, nor the dress, are not in my possession anymore… Yet, my love for them is still pretty real, and will never die. So sit back and relax, because there’s a whole bunch of inspiring looks coming your way!
Don’t you have that too, when you are somewhere and they play that one song, it takes you back to a specific moment in life that impacted you deeply; that summer love, a childhood Sunday morning memory, simply feeling that is indescribable… The same goes, for me, with scents. I know this sounds a tad strange, but trust me, I’m only referring to the good scents, and the good moments in my life that they bring up.
It’s Valentino Sunday, and I couldn’t be more excited! Always as one of the highlights of my Paris Fashion Week, the Valentino show – and of course my look to the show, which is not the one shown above – promises to be amazing. I say… Apple green… does that make you excited yet? Well, make sure to tune in to watch the show, the people, and everything else that comes with this fairytale. See you there!
Oh my god, we are already halfway through September! New York and London Fashion Weeks are behind us, Milan still in full swing, and the first day of school has passed. Whenever I get back to you after a – too long – blog absence I feel like starting with that thing where we say the cliché “where did the time go”. Yet, as we all know too, time flies when we are having fun! And so much fun I had in New York last week, living the Parisian life through Big Apple glasses…
