Chanel Iman Covers WSJ Magazine December 2011

From Victoria Secret Angel to the Mad Hatter. The now 21-year old Chanel Iman appears on the cover of WSJ Magazines December 2011 issue lensed by Hans Feurer and styled by Sabina Schreder. Draped in luxurious furs and baubles with her Lady Gaga-esque hats being the focus, the model evokes the spirit of an Italian socialite. Hmmm, ADR is that you?

Color Story: Cobalt Blue and Brown Inspired By 3.1 Phillip Lim

It’s official. I am the Queen of Lateness. I have been wanting to build a budget-friendly inspirational outfit for this 3.1 Phillip Lim look showcased during the Fall 2011 show. The cobalt blue and yummy cognac brown shades are definite fall/winter must-haves. I opted to skip the stark white pants (not that you can’t wear white during the winter), but if your heart so desires feel free to swap it for an option of your choice. Fun accessories from Jeffrey Campbell, MANGO, and ASOS completes the look.

Transgender Model Lea T Covers Elle Brasil 2011

It perplexes me that a person who was born male can not only capture the essence of femininity, but do it better than some of those who were born with it. Wearing Givenchy, Lea T appears on the cover of Elle Brasil December 2011 shot by Fábio Bartelt. I’ll never forget when the controversial model appeared on Oprah. I’m sure that episode was a little too much for America, but for me it gave me a great understanding of the issue. It took me only a few minutes into the show to believe that this is who she was born to be.

5 Bright Colored Fur Coat Picks to Shop for the Holidays

Recently, I found myself in Zara perusing the racks for nothing in particular when she caught my eye. Who is “she”, you might ask? A plush cotton candy colored, knee-length faux fur car coat with 3/4 inch sleeves. If you are looking to make a statement this holiday season from the pavement to the venue, I urge you to invest in a warm colored faux fur coat. The look is expensive without being too stuffy and just think of the grand entrance you’d make. Shop my picks below including fashion favorites Topshop and Betsey Johnson.
