Typically British originality

Coco Sumner attends Mango new collection presentation at Circulo de Bellas Artes on May 26, 2010 in Madrid, Spain.

After Agyness Deyn, another beautiful British girl astonishes with her eccentric and unconventional look (can you notice the glasses in her shirt's pocket?). She is Eliot Pauline Sumner, better known as Coco Sumner, daughter of Sting and Trudie Styler. She is a musician recording under the band name "I Blame Coco".

The British have this special talent (just think to Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller): in the most of the cases they are able to dress in an eccentric way without appearing gross but, on the contrary, they look even cool!

Three women, three styles

Three cities: New York, Paris and Milan, the fashion cities par excellence. Three women: Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld and Franca Sozzani, editors in chief of Vogue - the fashion magazine par excellence - of USA, France and Italy respectively. Three women, three different styles. So stylish and chic the American one (but born British), so glamour the French one, sober and elegant the Italian one, these three women embody the image of the modern businesswoman, anyway always womanly.

It is not unusual to see the fashionable daughters of Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld (Franca Sozzani has a son) together with their mothers on the front row at the fashion shows. Katherine (known as Bee) Shaffer, daughter of Anna Wintour, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, daughter of Carine Roitfeld are already fashion icons like their mothers.

Really eccentric bags


EN - A bag is the accessory that defines a look, the finishing touch that completes an outfit. Worn with originality and extravagance, it is also able to reverse and revolutionize a specific kind of clothing. I am stunned and fascinated (depending on the cases) by the brainwaves and creativeness I found browsing among some of my favourite blogs.

IT - La borsa è quell'accessorio che definisce un look, quel tocco finale che indirizza un outfit. Indossata con estrosità e originalità, essa è anche in grado di capovolgere e rivoluzionare una tipologia di abbigliamento. Sono rimasta sbalordita e affascinata (a seconda dei casi) da questi colpi di genio e creatività in cui mi sono imbattuta navigando per alcuni dei miei blog preferiti.

Black and white connections

As soon as I have seen this outfit of Rachel Bilson during one of the many parties of the 63rd Annual Cannes Film Festival, I remembered at once that Caroline of Monaco wore something like that some time ago. I think that, amid hundreds of evening gowns showed off in Cannes, more or less all similar, at last I have seen something different.

Agyness rocks

The British model Agyness Deyn shows the typical English eccentricity in matter of clothing during a stroll with her dog. Short hair cropped like a boy, leather jacket, Dr. Martens boots and animal print umbrella... Aggy rocks!

Chanel Resort Collection 2011

General overview of the Chanel Resort collection 2011, May 11 2010, Saint-Tropez, France.

On 11th May the presentation of the new Chanel collection, the Resort 2011, was held in Saint-Tropez. This collection has been especially thought for the summer holidays. The atmosphere was special, mainly for the choice of the location and of the catwalk. In fact the numerous guests were sitting in the red wooden chairs of Saint-Tropez's famous Sénéquier pâtisserie and many more onlookers piling onto balconies and pressing against barricades. But this is not all. The models traipsed down the street, used as a runway, often barefoot, wearing seventies diaphanous caftans, long crocheted dresses, ruffle-lapelled silk jersey trouser suits and patchwork denim skirts. The general mood (both models and guests) during the show was really a holiday mood. Here are some pieces of the collection that Karl Lagerfeld defined "very casual, very down-to-earth".

Some guests at this event: the model Elisa Sednaoui, protagonist of the recent video "Remember Now" shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Gaia Repossi and Georgia May Jagger, who has also traipsed as mannequin during this fashion show.

Fifties style for Carey Mulligan


I really like this outfit of the English actress Carey Mulligan, during the 63rd Annual Cannes Film Festival. The dress belongs to the printed collection of Miu Miu. The short hair, the oval sunglasses and the thin belt on the waist give her a fresh jaunty look.

The braided headband

Lately Nicky Hilton often has a braid shaped as a headband. She shows it off both for a look for day and for parties.

This precise hairstyle is the trademark of the fascinating Ukrainian politician Yulia Tymoshenko.




Nevertheless the socialite Nicky Hilton is not the only one who has taken inspiration by Yulia Tymoshenko's hairstyle. Recently also Princess Michael of Kent, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson have been seen with this same hairdo. At least, if one is not enough original, is fashionable; i.e. the first is original, the others... are just fashionable.
