Currently on the hunt for a great vintage faux fur leopard coat. A little 60′s, a little rough around the edges, a little wrong but oh so right. Perfect for fall days and obligatory iconic black and white photos you can show your kids.

Something I’ve figured out as I have got older is that I really am a bit of a tomboy at heart. Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than an LBD and a great pair of pumps, its just the ease of a great pair of trousers or a suit with a simple mens shirt that can make you feel a little stronger, a little cooler and more in control. Maria Bradley shares a similar sentiment and style, so no matter the shoot or show, she brings that certain presence to the table. Below is proof that you can also be a sexy tomboy – a little extra skin, suits in luxe satin a classic pair of gold hoops (borrowed from my mother) and you can bring a the perfect hint of femininity to the androgyny.

I styled the very talented Ana Khouri last month with Alex Nataf for her new project UNCONDITIONAL. Ana is truly one of a kind in the ever growing fine jewelry world with her own set of rules, preferring not to follow the intensifying seasonal schedule, instead, creating and releasing collections at her own pace. A business model I think is truly progressive, sustainable and admirable and perhaps one of the reasons that after 12 years of growth, her designs are still in demand at major retailers (including Barneys New York and Net-a-Porter) and worn by industry leaders, key influencers and of course the necessary sprinkling of the coolest kind of celebrity clientele.

So what happens when shooting just one of the worlds biggest supermodels isn’t enough? With possibly one of the biggest role calls in recent editorial, Mert & Marcus Piggot, together with Edward Enniful gathered the crème de la crème for the new September issue of W – Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Maria Carla Boscono, Lara Stone, Racquel Zimmerman, Anna Ewers, Suvi Kopenen… the list goes on. Last month Meisel cast a similar line up in Italian Vogue, Alasdair McLellan bought together a bevy of British babes for August’s UK Vogue and Peter Lindbergh gathered a very handsome motley crew of grimy kids for “The Factory” in Interview. Seems like everyone wants to be in the gang this month. Myself included. Requirements? Slightly 60′s in your styling, a serious attitude and an impossibly handsome other half or BFF.
