The Fall 2011 fashion shows have come to an end but we can still enjoy street style shots of the trendsetting fashion magazine editors and employees. Read on for some highlights from Paris.
Taylor Tomasi Hill, Style and Accessories director for Marie Claire, has been charming the Fashion Spot forums all month long with fun, quirky outfits that often showed her mixing and matching certain favorite pieces and accessories. In Paris, she once again wore her grey cow-adorned Burberry sweater, but she switched things up with a bright green and grey patterned Balenciaga mini skirt with a zig-zagging hem, thick grey tights, and grey booties. “The grey tights and shoes worn with that green-grey skirt are gorgeous!” declared Not Plain Jane.
Tomasi Hill rewore her fringed leather Isabel Marant mini and Christian Louboutin thigh-high suede boots in Paris with a Givenchy ski-chic turtleneck sweater. “I find this ski jumper with the Isabel Marant skirt a perfect match.” said lola rose. “Gotta love Taylor for rocking this kind of outfit!”
Christine Centenera, Fashion Editor for Harper’s Bazaar Australia, topped off her silky pajama-style Celine pants with a black blazer that didn’t go over so well with tFS forum posters. Centenera got points for wearing the eye-catching bottoms, but fika’s sentiment of “I love the pants but I don’t like how she matched them with that blazer,” matched the general consensus.
Giovanna Battaglia, Fashion Director for Vogue Gioiello and Vogue Pelle, also had a “this works, that doesn’t” moment in Paris. Her long silk floral-print Erdem dress was styled in a bohemian-chic manner and Battaglia accessorized with a brown belt and tassled bag, but the addition of a heavy fur stole around her neck added a clunky element that threw the whole look off. Liberty33r1bcommented: “Fantastic dress, but that fur around her neck ruined the outfit.” *ana* agreed, “Yeah the fur really wasn’t necessary. I’m in love with the rest of the look though!” she added. “I think it’s one of my favorites of Giovanna’s.”
Anna Dello Russo, Fashion Director at Large and Creative Consultant for Vogue Nippon, stayed true to her larger than life fashion aesthetic in Paris, stepping out in a head to toe shiny ensemble that consisted of a metallic pantsuit from Balmain’s Fall 2010 collection, a Miu Miu clutch, and Victoria Beckham aviator sunglasses. “Insane outfit as usual; she is so fun!” wroteFashionGuru1988. Later in the week, Dello Russo donned a Mary Katrantzou dress that contained a mix of prints, patterns, and colors. “I’m loving Anna’s Mary Katrantzou ensemble,” complimented Ziegfeld Girl. “I love the explosion of flowers and the different prints.” Label Basher was more focused on Dello Russo’s Mary Katrantzou by Christian Louboutin footwear. “Those ankle boots with the Mary Katrantzou outfit are WICKED. Must have,” she stated.
Géraline Saglio, Assistant Stylist for Vogue Paris, demonstrated her signature Parisian chic in slim black pants and a Givenchy leopard-print jacket that had forum members drooling. “I’m obsessed with this outfit,” wrote envogueforever. Ciao!Manhattan was also a fan. “She looks amazing, love the jacket,” she said.
Shala Monroque, Editor-at-Large for Pop Magazine, turned heads in slim, high-waisted white pants, a yellow top, Prada shoes, and funky, tropical-themed jewelry. “This woman is ridiculously chic,” wrote loladonna.
