A Style Post: Country Tweed & Urban Heels

Hello All,

You know, I was just looking back through a few past posts and I’ve only just realised how much I comment on the weather; it really is a lot.

It’s probably something to do with the fact that our Northern European climate and its unpredictable weather dictates exactly what we wear… Maybe my references to it are just an excuse when I write style posts as to why I’m wearing what I’m wearing. i.e. when I sat down to write this post, the first thing I typed was something along the lies of bright sunny autumn days. A description which easily explains why I’m wearing layers, which are necessary for those kind of days.

I love this outfit. The layers keep it fashion-forward but also wearable. The boots and coat are set to be my autumn/winter 2012 staples; the Burberry cardigan, which I have had since last year, is a really loose knit so isn’t warm enough for the depths of winter, but it’s perfect for now.

Contender for Model of the Year 2009. #1 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

I have no idea how many contenders there will be maybe 2, maybe 10, but I’m starting with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Discovered at 15 on a school work experience placement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has since secured jobs with some seriously high-profile and high-fashion companies. Now, at 22, she has already worked for Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger DKNY, Burberry, Clinique, BCBG Max Azria and Victoria’s Secret as well as scoring Agent Provocateur earlier this year.

In February, she was named Model of the Year at the Elle Style awards, but this is not my reason for considering her. It is her versatility as a model that puts her at the top of the list in my book and it was in July that she really made her mark. An editorial photographed by James Meakin was published in Exit magazine and it blew my socks off. I had seen Rosie in dozens of photographs; editorial, ads and red carpet, where she looks pretty but commercial…

…but this shoot showed just how high-fashion she could be. Incredible.

A Model Example on the Red Carpet

Good lord there was some serious glamour last night at the gala opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new exhibition: Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. Imagine, the honorary chair is Marc Jacobs with co-chairs Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake and Anna Wintour, could that list be anymore American cool and high fashion?

The Museum explains that the exhibition: “explores the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras”.

Naturally the red carpet was walked by models a-plenty and looking at some of the amazing creations they wore last night it would be impossible to deny that the exhibition has a place.

The guest list was most definitely A-list as not only did the world’s top models strut their stuff

but they were joined by some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment too.

Model hitters: Claudia Schiffer in world class elegance; Anja Rubik, proving that short can go to the ball; Sasha Pivovarova accessorising to extremes with a peacock cape and special mention to Agyness Deyn’s ode to Marylin Monroe femininity.

Non-Model hitters: Anne Hathaway killing it with big hair, black nails and smokey eyes; Ciara showing her perfect figure with perfect style, and Jessica Biel was made to wear that red!

Not sure about Madge, that headdress, or Rihanna trousers… yay, covering up everything except your ankles (check out the gloves!) NAY…

The exhibition starts today and runs until August 9th.

Red more about how fashion models have influenced the decades here.
