Style Spotlight – Taylor Tomasi Hill

Taylor Tomasi Hill is the Style & Accessories Director for US Marie Claire and muse to Prabal Gurung.

I’ve spotted her many times during Fashion Week. She’s hard to miss with her red hair and perfect porcelain skin.

Street style bloggers love her. Like most New York editors she captures the spirit of real everyday dressing with high-end pieces.

She is the Queen of mixing thing ups; whether it’s prints, colours, masculine/feminine or edgy/girlie.

Her combos make her street style so interesting, especially when mixed with her variety of accessories from Masai chokers to a multitude of necklaces which she piles high.

She seems to favour hips labels like Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester and she often adds vintage pieces to her look.

Style Spotlight – Kate Lanphear

I’ve wanted to do this post for a long time, but I thought it best to save my favourite Style Spotlight star for the last one of the year.

Kate Lanphear is the Style Director at Elle US.

She’s a fashion icon because I don’t know anyone who can wear so much black yet never look boring. Maybe she should be dressing Angelina Jolie.

I always look out for her during fashion week and so do the style bloggers. They love her as much as their Queen Anna Dello Russo.

She’s always immaculately dress with kick ass accessories which pull everything together so well.

Style Spotlight – Joanna Hillman

Joanna Hillman is the senior fashion market editor covering American and British ready-to-wear for American Harper’s Bazaar.

Before Harper’s Bazaar she worked at Teen Vogue and assisted stylist Lori Goldstein.

During Fashion Week the style bloggers go crazy for her downtown New Yorker style.

I saw her many times during Spring 2011 fashion week and I always noticed her trademark Raybans, bold red lips and long blonde hair which was styled into a Wang/Miu Miu plait.

She’s a very stylish lady. Her outfits always stand out and are very well put together and perfectly accessorized.

Style Spotlight – Dree Hemingway

Dree Hemingway is the great-granddaughter of Ernest and daughter of Mariel.

On Dree resume she’s noted as both an actress and a model.

Most of us will know her more as a model, as she’s appeared in campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Gianfranco Ferré, Salvatore Ferragamo, Paco Rabanne and DKNY.

You may have seen her editorials for Harper’s Bazaar, Numéro and Vogue and she’s walked for Givenchy, Calvin Klein, House of Holland, Karl Lagerfeld, Giles, Chanel and Rue du Mail during Fashion Week.

Most recently I’ve been turned onto her red carpet style. As she loves to have fun on the red carpet.

She’s fearless and she’s not afraid of colour.

Style Spotlight – Giovanna Battaglia

This month’s Style Spotlight falls on Giovanna Battaglia.

The Italian born former Dolce & Gabanna model, is the fashion editor of L’Uomo Vogue and also works as a freelance stylist.

During Fashion Week she’s one of those effortless stylish women sitting in the front row.

She has over 3,300 people lusting over her style on Facebook, and style bloggers like Scott Schuman, Garance Dore, Tommy Ton love her too.

What I also love about her is that she’s not just a clothes horse. She had plenty of character and mounds of personality.

Giovanna’s style is elegant and classic, but she does do edgy from time to time.

She’s not afraid to repeat a look like Anna and Victoria Beckham.

But like VB, I much prefer Giovanna’s street style to her red carpet style. Read More…
