hedi gores, co-founder of pressed juicery & the chalkboard. hedi gores’ closet is essentially a rodeo drive boutique filled w/racks of clothes & perfectly-placed shoes where the heels are expertly displayed in fresh form. gores’s digs are an eclectic mix of new-meets-old, complete w/rich velvet fabrics, quirky taxidermy & modern detailing — including a custom graffiti wall in her son’s bedroom. from her selection of printed balenciaga skirts to her collection of classic hermès bags, gores has a style that borders cool & classic. & even though her closet is a sea of colourful, whimsical heels, gores always goes back to the simple black pump. “i love the opportunity to be grand, but it’s the classics that are key to who i am.”

beauty to leave you breathless. there’s not one element that doesn’t nudge the upper boundaries of sheer perfection: tana stychinskaya’s styling mix of mesh, fur, satin & lace; ernest muntaniol’s brilliant feline makeup & hair (which jumps from jessica rabbit-like curls to a slick androgynous quiff); & lev efimov’s flawless black & white photography.

costume institute gala, met ball 2012. from actors to musicians, designers to stylists, even models to football quarterbacks, the biggest stars in the world gathered last monday night (may 7, 2012) at the metropolitan museum of art in new york city to celebrate the opening of spring 2012’s costume institution exhibit: schiaparelli & prada: impossible conversations.
vogue editor-in-chief, anna wintour is responsible for overseeing every detail of the annual benefit including the guest list & allegedly, every single attendee’s outfit. thus, narrowing my top 40 for best overall look & originality was nearly an ‘impossible conversation’ itself.
listed in alphabetical order: amy poehler, fontini; anja rubik, anthony vaccarello; anna wintour, prada; ashley greene, donna karan; bee schaffer, erdem; beyoncé, givenchy; bianca brandolini d’adda, dolce & gabbana; camilla belle, ralph lauren; carey mulligan, prada; cate blanchett, alexander mcqueen.
alessandra codinha, columnist for women’s wear daily new york, shares her fashion essentials w/garance doré.
top: i love this wes gordon sweater. it’s so luxurious; i want to live in it.
jeans: j brand, levi’s, isabel marant.
coat: i am all about the vintage fur. i steal them from my mother or scour vintage markets for them.
handbag: in the summer, i carry [a] basket [from a] small town along the costa brava of spain.
shoes: in the summer, leather sandals; k. jacques or something simple. bootleg [a store] based out of an airstream in austin, texas has great sandals.
jewelry: i wear two rings from my grandmother every day & perpetually begging my mother to lend me pieces for special events. one of the things i love about jewelry is the history behind it: the elements of it last forever, it can be passed down through generations. as far as “fashion jewelry:” i love bliss lau’s designs: her body chains; her hand pieces. the piece i wear on my right hand is bliss lau. i bought it one day haven’t really taken it off since.
timepiece: i don’t wear one anymore! i bought [a] primary-colored, plastic nixon watch on a whim at colette [in paris] & ended up wearing it every single day for the past four years. i loved it to death. the battery died twice, i had it revived & then the band snapped in half & it was over. now i’m on the lookout for a new one.
glasses: thierry lasry
inspiration: there’s this gore vidal idea, that “style is knowing who you are & what you want to say & not giving a damn.”

mcq fall/winter 2012. volume & strict waist cinching has become part of the mcq aesthetic. that strict femininity that hides yet celebrates the female form, here in hem lengths that dust the knees & silhouettes that border on military heaviness. if done wrong, such cuts could lose their appeal, but keeping the waist tight ensures that never happens. thigh-high lace-up boots, chain detail on wide belts, long leather gloves & dark, rich furs take shapes that border on victorian yet decidedly tough. tartan pieces, lace blouses & floral embroidery add youthfulness to the more mature, full-volume dresses & structured coats.
