I love Natalia Alaverdian’s style.  I always think of her as the accessory queen – Not one for an arm party, she always has just the right amount of jewels on to make her super feminine look a little more fun.

On the first afternoon of Couture I spotted her in this dreamy Dolce dress and fell so in love with her earrings (from the first picture) that two days later she brought me the address of the little shop in Florence where she found them.  Super sweet. x

It’s no secret I love Caroline Issa’s effortless style, remember when I featured a style profile on her?

That’s why I was so happy when Glamour UK magazine asked me to shoot a style profile on her for their pages. Here is one of the shots from our shoot.  You can check out the full shoot here.

I love this look, it is perfectly Caroline, right down to the polished red lip and that killer smile.

Hey London, what happened to Summer?

Dreaming of California under these grey skies… although kind of loving still getting to wear my trench and  mixing oversized denim and button up shirts, with little skirts like Codie in her Acne in Paris.

I love shooting real girls.  That is not to say that the girls at fashion week are not ‘real’, although there is something so exciting about shooting girls who aren’t wearing head to toe Givenchy or Celine.  Don’t get me wrong, I am a complete sucker for beautifully cut clothes and am a complete brand loyalist, although perhaps that is why I am so attracted to shooting students and young people who, although are most likely consciously (or subconsciously) aware of the trends,  just wear what feels good, going about it all a little more organically.

I spent yesterday in Camden for Glamour, and here are a few of the amazing girls I met.

Welcome to Sydney!

After a 30 hour flight from Florence I arrived into Sydney and felt like kissing the ground and then crying a little… jet lag city!  But then I saw a lovely man holding a sign at the airport with my name on it (that rarely happens!) and I arrived at my hotel with a view to DIE FOR over the Sydney Harbour and Opera House… and I didn’t feel so jet lagged anymore.

I spruced up and went down with the other Sydney Fashion Ambassadors Bryan Boy and Rumi Neely to meet the Deputy Premier of NSW to officially begin the week (see the images here!).  And what a beginning it has been!  A day of  amazing shows. The highlight was Romance Was Born in the morning, which I thought would have a tough time out doing last seasons incredible extravaganza (remember my Fashion Week diary for Vogue UK ) – but they did not disappoint!

Although the stand out for me today was the beautiful girls.  SO many amazing outfits, so many cool girls.  There must be something in the water.

It’s almost 2am and I am frantically sending images to Vogue.com UK and Vogue.com Australia whom I am covering the fashion week for… but here are two of my favourite beauties from day 1… stay tuned.

Ruby Aldridge is bad ass.  She is one of the only models who’s style doesn’t really divert from being ” I just picked this up off my boyfriends floor” cool and yet is still always really exciting to shoot.  She always wears old denim, rocks a dad belt, wears lots of long chains, and is often sporting an old/ slouchy Tshirt.  Also, let’s just discuss that she is reading Stephen King’s The Shinning… AND… last time we met in Paris she was listening to Ween on a WALKMAN… like I said, bad ass.

There is just something about London girls… especially the fashion girls.

It’s the hard exterior edge juxtaposed with the pure ‘English rose’ beauty – something about this balance is perfect and like no where else.  When people ask me who I most love to shoot, I always say the young fashion girls in London.

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
