Irreplaceable Style

     For the most part, everyone in the fashion business dresses quite wonderfully, in a way that we can go: "Oh, that is so [insert name here]," just by seeing the back of their head, or shape of their jacket. But, now,  in a sea of people all going for the "IT" thing - Phoebe Philo, I love your creations, but everyone is wearing them - some still stand out and sing their own song. Here are a few of my picks.
VIKA GAZINSKAYA: 

   This Russian designer is known more for her personal style than her collections, which is fine because her style is as awesome as it gets. She keeps everything simple: the colors, silhouette, etc; with the occasional splash of "wow." I like how her bowl cut (which is normally the ugliest thing you could ruin your head of hair with) comes off as cool, dynamic, and even classy glamour. I love how she keeps her look minimal and classy, which, in my opinion, is a lot sexier than any Balmain dress ever could be.  She's smart enough to look past the ultra-short hemlines and show beauty, which lasts a lot longer than sexy. When someone is beautiful, they are forever, like her style, where as that Balmain dress can't be worn past the age of thirty.

IEKELIENE STANGE: 

    Is anyone else getting sick of the whole model-off-duty thing? I mean, how many times can someone say that a white t-shirt, denim cutoff shorts and a pair of Frye boots is 'effortlessly cool'? Stange managed to shine through all of that and show a quirky, colorful side. I love the way everything is just so mix-and-match. Or, all in one color. She can make an all-red look exciting. Her mile-high cheekbones are the perfect compliment to her off kilter style. Be it a little baby doll dress or funky leggings, she knows how to add an awkwardness that was intended. If I only I could pull that off without having to explain myself or the look actually being awkward.



TATI COTLIAR:

   Seems like everyone has caught Tati Fever over these past half-year. Not only is she one of the prettiest girls, in my opinion, on the runway, her personality and style nothing short of wonderful. When I first saw the picture of her in an awkwardly (I like awkward style!) small school boy outfit, my heart just melted. I said out loud "genius!" From the pants slung low on the waist, to the little tie and cardigan, she is the only person who could ever pull off such a good school boy outfit. So. Good. I can only imagine the bright career this one has in store for her.
   Well, that is about all for now. So, in the end, I guess this post is about standing out from the others. I'll this post with a quote by Coco Chanel (my hero), who expresses the matter wonderfully: "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." Nothing has ever been so true.
