can i say something sart? youre a bit of a sucker upper to all these editors. I know u want spreads and mention in their magazines, but you cross the line when it comes to buttering up to climb the social ladder. good site though, sicky comments.
I really don’t know if this woman is Italian, but I must admit that the most elegant Italian women come from Rome; I do not appreciate the Milan look much, I rather like the roman elegance. sorry about my english Nina Madrid
To anon 4:34 am So who am I sucking up to when i am posting photos of assistant editors and assistant to the assistant editors and people with standing room tickets? I am honest when I say she is one of my icons, it is just that simple. I have not been in the “media” side of fashion for very long so any feelings i have for certain editors or personalities was developed when i was a fashion fan like everyone else so I feel very comfortable in admitting who i really look up to. I could just act cool and blase but I am just not that way.
I do admit that if i post a lot of nice photos of older people so I might get a nice spot at a retirement home of my choice when the time comes.
the fashion industry stands for something – doesn’t it? I dont get this “real style doesn’t apply at fashion week or w/ those assoc.” mentality…OF COURSE it does – many of thosepeople suffer w/ low pay & raging bosses whilst trying to follow the dreams and plans that were laid when they were young and reading vogue and admiring the unusual/pretty/chic. You don’t need to post this comment sart – I just really wanted you to know: I am with you – keep it up.
sincerely, ex-fashionista who couldn’t hack the druggy boss/low pay/crazy travel/insane demands and now is in finance and bored and wishes she were in fashion – just the one she dreamt of rather than what she encountered at 4 places along 7th.
Franca Sozzani has been one of my style icons for years. Her and her sister have the most amazing home in Marakech that was featured in W mag 12 yrs. ago (maybe more?) I keep it in my files for inspiration! Between Her and Carine Roitfield, they keep the concept of STYLE affiliated with Vogue.
so nice to see long hair on a middle-age-ish woman. you don’t have to cut your hair once you reach 40! i’d like to see more long hair on older women. i look forward to having long, salt and pepper braids when i’m 50. thanks, sart.
I really don’t know what I like the most, her blond hair as a contrast to the black, the shades, the shoes, her small but very chic wallet or her smile! Most of all I think I like her attitude! she’s one of my most important style icons, along with her sister Carla.
