This week, Glenda, my super cool and stylish friend from London interviewed me on her Fashion Blog!
Glenda is one of these cool London girls you wish you’d be. Young, funny, sexy with a kick-ass job and an ultra-glam style at all time.
Her blog, Work Your Style, focuses on “real” style advice: practical style advices that come from “normal persons” who actually have to go to work 5 days out of 7 (for a job which is not an editorial position in a fashion magazine or a not freelance graphic design role..) and thus can not afford to go there with a total SeaPunk or Front Row look.. A refreshing point of view in the world of blogging nowadays!
Check out my interview on her blog on Work Your Style! (PS: I am not sure I gave the right answers.. but shhh!)

My friend Y. has one of the biggest private “collections” of Hermes scarves I know! When you question her about it, she humbly and wittily explains that it is because she had time to collect models over the years with each Christmas or birthday being a new opportunity to complement her collection! I love her answer and get her point: a scarf collection is something you develop over the years.. with passion and knowledge.
Today to celebrate this lovely late Spring time, I photographed a selection of her amazing scarves, all in the shades of mauve, one of my favourite colours to wear in late Spring when I want to start to show off my skin but that it is not too tanned yet. The colours of the scarves are incredible and the patterns transport you from India to the bottom of the sea.. Enjoy and happy Bank Holiday!
A bit of a controversial “look of the week” this week with the… Madame look!
I saw this girl in Paris outside a show at Fashion Week.
Her outfit was one of the sexiest I ever saw in the street. For the first time, this was not the ‘sexy chic‘ I am used to see (in Italy for example) nor the ‘trashy sexy‘ that I sometimes see in California (Paris Hilton are you still there?). This was just a plain outrageous and provocative sexy ‘madame style‘.
And what stunned me was that she managed to do this by just playing with her legs (if you observe her shirt is buttoned till the top)… ahah.. you can tell that she sticked to the fashion rule of so many classy women: “show only one thing at a time and cover up the other entirely“!
Ever wondered how stylist dress like for themselves? Well the answer is something (amazingly cool) like this..
This was the look of German stylist Myriam Schlicher and her friend (who she styled up as well).

Another of my favourite designer street style looks spotted during Milan Design Week, the one of Lakutatekaddze, a very cool designer from.. Georgia!

More street style from the young and trendy designers who came to the Salone del Mobile in Milan this week!
This girl was exhibiting in the “Salone Satellite”, the section of the Salone del Mobile reserved for upcoming young designers. She comes from Japan.. and I adored her style from head to toes!
Selection of street style looks (..or party style should I say!) spotted during Design Week in Milan this week!
PS: The amazing shawl of the girl above (cashmere please!) comes from her (German) friend, Antonia Zander. Check out here website here!
I met this girl at the Trussardi party in Milan the other week.. and thought her almond shaped nails (and whole style) were quite awesome. Definitely something I will try this summer! Continue reading
I don’t know what I prefer from her MiuMiu Madras bag or immaculate white stilettos!
(ps: since Garance declared it on her “Trending” you tube serie, white shoes are very “trending” right now..)
Yesterday, to celebrate the arrival of Spring, I decided to mark the occasion in style.. and wore this giant shawl from Hermes!
Its name is “Piments” (“Chilly” in English). It is all in the green, brown and red hues. And it is giant indeed.. perfect to go out celebrate this first “chilly” day of Spring! ;)
What about you? Did you do anything special for the first day of Spring?
The other day I went to shoot my friend M.-A. (a Parisian chic girl with one of the biggest bag collection I know of – but more on this very soon!) as she succumbed to one of this year biggest temptation: the Cabas ChYc from Saint Laurent Paris! A great opportunity for me to approach (and test) this new IT bag..
I met this girl during London Fashion Week at the Fashion Scout, a place showcasing catwalks of young designers during London Fashion Week (more on this later).
We were queing together, waiting for the show of Timur Kim, a talented young designer who already made a capsule collection for Pringles of Scotland (more on him later too..).
I fell in love with her look. The glasses (obviously), the little fur collar, the bold print.. and even the shade of lipstick she chose to go with it. I bet she was seeing la vie en rose this day.. Continue reading
So I am now back home from what trendy people call “Fashion Month” (people do not say “Fashion Weeks” anymore but “Fashion Month” as yes, technically, it lasts about a month and it is chicer to show that you attended all of them and not just one of course..)
And as I promise you the other week when I showed you the special Carnival de Venise scarf from Hermes, here is a quick (and easy) new tutorial to show you how to rock your scarves (= how to tie them in a cool way).
This time with a Tie Knot. Here are the pictures. I did not put any comment as, hopefully, it is self explanatory (if you have any question, don’t hesitate to just leave a msg!). Continue reading
Hi there ladies, I am still in Paris for the Fashion Week. Back home tomorrow to attend what promise to be an amazing new Make Up For Ever make up tutorial.
I have lots of pictures of great shows and new designers to share with you.. but today, I want to share pictures of some great bags I saw this week at Paris Fashion Week.
What I loved was the diversity.. from Chanel to Chinese bags! Which one is your favourite?
Street Styles at Paris Fashion Week this year are all about.. Vintage Style! J’adore!
