More Modern Style Icons

Carine Roitfeld, Editor in Chief French Vogue has that rock chick meets Paris chic - an edgy style that looks fabulous.  Given the fact that she is well in to her 50's she still looks  amazing and of late she has softened her normal hard make-up and we've even seen a more colour other than black. She has had no surgery as far as I know but French women have less work done than their US conterparts.

But for her edgy Paris chic and fabulous styling in Vogue she deserves her palce in my hall of fame.

New Camera!!

At last we have a new camera so I can get out and about to make my blog more personal and start adding some fabulous pictures.

The sun is shining spring/summer updates for my wardrobe need to be bought and old favourites brought out - lots of new fabulous posts of my spring looks and more glamour coming soon.

Modern Icons SJP

I guess you can't do a posting on modern icons without including SJP apart from giving us one of the best TV shows ever she has her own sense of style aside from her character in the series.

So I tried to find some pictures of SJP not Carrie.  I love that she is not afraid of mixing it up - as do all of my modern icons.  She has a much more classic approach to fashion than she does on screen but still manages to pull off quirky touches.

Whether she is taking her son to school, out with her husband or rocking the red carpet she manages to look fablulous and I want every pair of shoes in these pictures.

Again with all of the women I am going to feature - they don't work with a stylist, they are confident and strong with a great sense of self.

Their looks are individual but give all of us ideas of how to glam it up and look fabulous everyday.

Giovanna - a true fashion inspiration

I was catching up with my favourite blogs and one of the first on my list is always The Sartorialist and to my joy I saw that Scott had posted a picture of Giovanna Battaglia Fashion Editor of Italian Vogue and stylist.

I have decided to do a regular "Modern Style Icon" post with images of those people who I think deserve to be in this hall of fame. 

One of the first had to be Giovanna. She always looks so stylish and glamourous.  She puts a twist on classic and takes a risk with fashion. Some of the combinations she comes up with shouldn't work but she manages to make it look amazing!!

Giovanna has got fabulous personal style and is obviously very confident in her choices.  She has a strong sense of self.  I know that she has a designer wardrobe at her fingertips but a lot of her pieces are such classics and really easy to put together for us lesser mortals without the high end price tag. The simple grey polo neck that she pulls out time and time again adding a funky skirt or shoes to make the outfit pop. Or the clash of colours and use of accessories is something we can all attemp to replicate with our own wardrobe.

So here's to Giovanna a worthy first on my "Modern Style Icon" section!!
