If there is one thing I love about street style, it is seeing how different girls interpret the same pieces in vastly different ways. Remember last week when I posted the photo of Ezgi for my a girl a day series? Can you believe that Elena is wearing the same Marni x H&M jacket?! It looks SO different. Well obviously IT looks the same, although how the two styled it is so vastly different… and that, in a (very loose) nut shell, is why I love doing this!
Elena basically has the kind of style that I always try to emulate. She is super polished, classic, but with a gorgeous little twist and can mix high street with designer so you never know what is what. Oh and she is probably the only other girl who loves hats/ headbands as much as I do… LOVE x

My friend Peony Lim, has a style all of her own – and I love it.
I have been snapping Peony for a few seasons for Vogue.com and Glamour and each season I love how her style develops every season. She does not follow any trends and I have never seen her with the latest ‘it’ bag that all the girls are wearing. She is always doing her own fabulous, uber-chic thing, to the beat of her own drum… a la this 70′s Yves Saint Laurent smoking suit… and that’s why I absolutely adore her.
Oh, and did I mention that on top of this she is also an incredible cook (hello cakes galore), has a wardrobe, bf and manners to die for (all equally important in my opinion) and says exactly what she is thinking at all times (i.e. “Candice you are being rather bossy!” said with a gorgeous smile when I ask her to walk continuously back and forth down a side street in Paris…)
All these qualities make for a winning combination!

Back in January, I flew to Milan to walk in Alberta Ferretti’s Limited Edition 2012 Demi Couture show in Milan. It was such an honor to be asked back onto the catwalk and by none other than Ms Ferretti… It was the beginning of a very amazing friendship (MORE TO COME!)
Check out the my interview before the show… the lovely interviewer was so worried I had jinxed myself with my last comment!
After the show with Alberta Ferretti and all the gorgeous girls.
Caroline Sieber rocked these pretty pleats during Paris Fashion Week, OH THOSE PLEATS! She mixed them with a Maison Michel hat and an (ever so slightly) oversized sweater… It’s all so perfect, right down to that Christopher Kane clutch.
It’s no secret I have the fever for mixing yellow with black. I am, one may say, obsessed. I just love how it pops! So when I saw Ezgi Kramer in the Tuileries, rocking this incredible combo and mixing it with a Marni x H&M jacket, I was in love.
