Most Beautiful… from Milano

After my Most Beautiful list from Paris, is here my Most Beautiful list from the fashion shows earlier this year in Milano.

In regards to most beautiful full collection, I am torn between Jil Sander and Gucci. Both collections are so different, but in their own style equally exquisite: Raf Simons excels with his perfect tailored silhouettes and Frida Gianni with an ultra-chic feminine collection.

Ready, set, GO: September Issues!

The September issues of fashion magazines are THE must have editions. Without them, fashionistas like we are, are lost. And being on the cover of the September issue means a lot. Here are the September cover girls, with Lady Gaga up front as cover girl of the US Vogue and Karlie Kloss with 2 Vogue covers!

I’ve been holding it off for a while, but that means that I need to start working on my trend report this weekend….

Woman of Style – Jessica Biel

I haven’t always been a fan of Jessica Biel, but I have to admit that lately she’s growing on me. She always had an amazing body: muscular and curvy at the same time. But something has changed in her styling recently and her hair looks great with the bangs. She has a glam factor now and not that girl-next-door label any more.

My favourite look is the amazing pink Dior Haute Couture gown.
Just stunning!

Arrivederci fashion editor, muse, icon Anna Piaggi

The fashion scene is in mourning over the death of Anna Piaggi. She died yesterday at the age of 81 in her home in Milano.

Anna started her fashion editor career in the sixties and had a long lasting collaboration with Vogue Italia. But I guess, we all know her best from her exuberant, flamboyant, avant-garde fashion sense. A true style icon for people like Dita von Teese and Anna Dello Russo. She was also a fashion muse, having special friendships with Karl Lagerfeld, Stephen Jones and Manolo Blahnik.

The front row has lost la Grande Anna.

1 Jacket, 1 Woman, 30 Days

If you’d have to wear one piece of clothing for 30 days, what would it be?

In Style’s senior fashion editor Natalie Hartley took on the challenge and picked out that one iconic fashion piece that has captivated women since 1956: the Chanel jacket.

At the beginning, Natalie was very excited and creative with the jacket. She experienced the special effect it had on herself and other people. Up until day 23: boredom. Too much of a good thing can also be bad. But then day 31 came and she had to bring it back to the shop. Challenge accomplished, but something important seemed to be missing in her life…

Lessons learned: a Chanel jacket fits with many things, it has a lot of power and if you wear it every day for a whole year….the price per day is so ridiculously low you could easily talk yourself into buying one!
