Style Crush: Laura Whitmore

My most recent inspiration comes in the form of a beautiful blonde journalist turned It girl, Laura Whitmore. Her claim to fame was attainment of a highly coveted position as an MTV presenter, as she then went on to other television gigs, even hosting a 360° red carpet show. Appearing at only the best, and all of the best, events on the scene, she has really made a mark in the fashion world. With her flawless sense of style, immaculate taste, and on spot outfits, she earned herself front row seats to nearly all of London Fashion Week’s finest designers. It doesn’t stop there, Whitmore doubles as a DJ. I can’t even. She has spun at many nightclubs in London, and is a client of JP Talent, taking booking inquiries. London born babe, MTV presenter, fashion icon, looks to kill for, party princess… should I go on? Take a look for yourself.

If you’re just as infatuated as I am, here is her Twitter account so you can stalk her like I plan to do. Also here is the link to book her, if you’re for some reason looking for a woman DJ. Why not? I love it. Enjoy, dolls!

P.S. She’s spotted wearing the likes of: Zoe Jordan, J Brand, Felder Felder, Heohwan, Jimmy Choo, Bora Aksu, and even H&M, Guess, and River Island. Designer chic paired with simple, affordable chic. Dying.

Party At Gatsby’s

Being mildly obsessed with F. Scotts Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby since it’s required reading in honors English back in high school, I was more than excited to finally see Baz Luhrmann’s take on the cult classic this weekend. Captivated by the romance, decadence, mystery, magic, glitz, and glam I can admit that despite the reviews, I was infatuated. Seriously, what more could a girl ask for out of a film? Aside from being inspired to spend my last summer in college trying to recreate the roaring 20’s via partying in Scottsdale, LA, and Vegas, Gatsby also triggered an urge to read the rest of Fitzgerald’s novels. The movie reminded me of what a literal genius he is, so I decided that my next purchase is going to be The Beautiful and the Damned from Coralie Bickford-Smith. Between the modern soundtrack (The Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray on repeat) to the lavish party scenes, the film was a visual masterpiece designed to be the ultimate cinematic experience. The prestigiously picked cast was further embellished with the wardrobe, which had me eager to find my own luxurious 20’s inspired pieces. Take a look, pick something out, grab a stiff martini, and shake it!

Punk: Chaos to Couture

Punk is not dead! Not after one of the biggest nights in the fashion industry took place on May 6th at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The Met Ball’s theme this year was Punk Rock, in honor of the museum’s latest exhibit, “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, a theme full of daring potential and promising fashion failures. The red carpet was laden with ensembles that varied anywhere from vintage romantic “punk” to punk rock glam. From A-list celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry to Hollywood’s has-beens, everyone showed up in their costumes as a hit, a miss, or even a self-proclaimed parody. While I found that the majority of the attendees ended up looking completely ridiculous with spikey hair and fishnet bodysuits, the following celebs embodied the theme with style and grace.

A Rose at Dawn… Broke by Noon

Polyvore is one of my favorite interactive websites. It brings back fond memories of playing the “Barbie’s Closet” games on the internet and acts as virtual dress up chest. It’s a helpful tool to conceptualize visions and create tangible visuals. I use it often as a personal inspiration board as well as to showcase my thoughts and ideas,  so look forward to seeing more of my sets!
I put together this look with a modern day Carrie Bradshaw in mind. Sophisticated and classic yet youthful thanks to the messy bun and playfully pleated dress. Suitable for day full of shopping or brunch with the girls, #iwould.
