How to Dress like a Parisian

Featured

Effortlessly chic by nature, nonchalantly elegant in approach, Parisian women win hands down in the style stakes. Parisian fashionistas develop a signature look, and stick with it. They might update their wardrobe with a few trends, but they always stick to a similar aesthetic. Break down the wardrobes of the French woman, and the style rules they live begin to crystalize. Forgo a trendy embellished sweatshirt for a perfectly fitted LBD dress you’ll wear for years, for one. Invest in a few classic luxury items, like a Hermès Kelly, knowing it will ultimately be a value spread over time. And above all, work to perfect a unique style all your own, because half the battle when it comes to dressing well is feeling good in what you are wearing.

“When in doubt, ask yourself what a modern Coco Chanel would wear! She redefined the way that women dressed in the early 20th century, but the look that Coco Chanel created is just as significant today”

Couture is Still the Way of Selling a Dream

Haute couture Week is one of the most important events on the fashion calendar. Biannually, internationally renowned fashion houses like Chanel and Christian Dior, as well as newer, lesser-known brands such as Bouchra Jarrar and Elie Saab, present painstakingly elaborate and extremely expensive designs behind closed doors to a hand-picked audience of editors, buyers and private clients.

“For a long time, Haute Couture, was all that mattered in fashion, and Couture is still the way of selling a dream. Couture is still the way of extending brand fame. People see the footage or pictures from a Couture show, and say to themselves: – I’m still going to but that Chanel N 5 or that Dior Lipstick… Because I still want to buy a little bit of that dream!”

Much smoother skin with OLAY 

One of the best beauty secrets my mum ever told me was that it’s never too early to start focusing on your skin. As I’m starting to notice little lines here and there, I couldn’t agree more! One of my favorite parts of what I do is that I get to try out some of the newest beauty products before they hit the stores! I’ve discovered so many amazing products I would’ve never known about otherwise, which are now some of my product staples.

“The initial smell was delightful like fresh flowers! It’s very important to me for anything I’m putting on my face or body to have a pleasant aroma”

The Magic of Gucci Resort 2018: A Renaissance in Florence

The Gucci Cruise 2018 show took place in Florence, Italy a few months back. Inspired by the Renaissance, Alessandro Michele showed a collection that had a little bit of everything: New logo shirts and jeans for the ladies. A men’s must-have sweater that read Guccy across the front (sure to be spotted on every street style star worth her salt in Instagram followers.) Jogger pants, fanny packs, gold sequin capes. Red carpet-worthy Grecian-inspired gowns, bold palazzo pants, signature stripe cardigans, a logo-stamped fur coat—the list is long. After all, there were more than 100 looks!

“I styled my pants with the matching sweater top for a quintessentially Gucci Girl ensemble”
