Known as one of the Paris jet-setters, frequently hitting the night club scene, smoking as many as 150 cigarettes a day, and for being a heavy drinker and cocaine user, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) was one of the most influential couturiers of the 20th century.
YSL is one of my biggest inspirations into the world of fashion, just slightly behind Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. This amazing French designer, who at the age of 21, found himself as the head designer of the House of Christian Dior, was the first living designer to be given a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983
Ah, the power of the Little Red Dress – Tricky to get right, but fabulous when you do.
Undoubtedly, red is a color that calls a lot of attention and focus when worn. Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. Signifying a more pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, it is why you often see male leaders in red ties.
“Remember that a sexy red dress equals simple everything else! I never go over board with my accessories when I choose red.”
The fall crisp air is beginning, and I’m over-excited for Fall and all the wonderful Holidays to finally arrive! I love dressing in layers, and finding the perfect cape jacket or coat has been on my bucket-list since May!
“I like how fashionable cape coats are… they add that extra touch of fabulous. Plus they always makes me feel like a super hero”
What could be more desirable for summer than crisp clean white, dazzling in the sun or framed by a blue sky? When you wear white from head to toe, it results in an exceptionally stylish, high-impact look. I always invest in white pieces for Summer, and this season I teamed up with the London based brand Body Frock. Body Frock is known as the ‘dress with an inner secret’, and I wanted to find out what the hype was all about!
Ah sweet, sweet Spring! When it’s summer in the light, but winter in the shade. When everything is new again, and I can finally put on my favorite flower dresses! Not sure it’s allowed to be this excited about Spring since it’s January, but the first day of Spring is only just 2 months away…
