Styling fashion shows or editorials.
Editorials are my favorite because you can tell a story, create a character, and inspire people to try new things for that point in time.
David LaChapelle or Mario Testino.
Mario Testino. My favorite, hands down. He really brings out the best of any photograph. Especially when he works with Grace Coddington. I get lost in the pages.
Socialites or Street style.
Street style. It’s fun and daring. Most Socialites have stylists, and street style is very organic, very much a have-fun-and-who-cares blaze attitude.
New York or Paris Fashion Week.
NYFW for the accessibility and the socialization before/after the shows. PFW for the couture artistry and detail in the art that is fashion.
Silver or Gold.
Shoes or bags.
Invest in a great “forever” bag if you must pick between the two. A classic shape and great care will make your investment last for many years.
