WHY CAN’T I BE YOU? VOL VIII: RUBY ALDRIDGE

In general I’m always a bit dubious about models as stylistic inspiration as I can never really trust if it’s their wardrobe I want or their crazy-good genes (this does not include mentalist Hanne Gaby, who as I’ve said before, has an amazing wardrobe but does look a lot like a dinosaur), but #unpopularopinion – I ‘m not actually an Aldridge #stan at all so I can let myself off on this one.

As with all of my WCIBY crushes, Ruby’s style is mostly monochromatic, androgynous and built around staple basics. ALL GD THINGS. Another reason I’m a big fan of her street style is that despite being 8ft 3ins tall and weighing the same as a bag of flour, her sartorial choices aren’t things that can only be carried off by genetic freaks, but are universally wearable (apart from maybe the microscooter).

WHY CAN’T I BE YOU? VOL IV: HANNE GABY ODIELE

I know the other day I said she looks like a triceratops (I stand by it) but she’s definitely the most stylish dinosaur I’ve ever seen.

One of the most striking models of the past decade and signed to agency powerhouse SUPREME, Hanne walked a whopping 55 shows in AW12 and holds the unofficial title of The Only Interesting Thing To Ever Come Out Of Belgium. Hanne is as famous for her fashionable turns off the catwalk as much as on. Hanne has a rep for wearing the most outlandish and seemably unwearable looks without looking like she’s cursing a poor over-excitable PR in her head. Remember her in Comme a few weeks ago?

My favourite Hanne looks are where she’s more understated, and requires a lot less ironing.

MAYBE’S SHE’S BORN WITH IT, MAYBE SHE LOOKS SLIGHTLY LIKE AN ANIMAL/DINOSAUR

Another highly intellectual and hard-hitting post, this.

Ain’t nothing wrong with having more than a passing resemblance to an animal, people are always being praised for having “feline features”, or “legs like a gazelle”.  When I was a baby I looked more like a puppy than an actual human child, and I grew up to be STUNNING.

Here are 10 models slightly more attractive than myself that could easily book a David Attenborough campaign.

AW13 / NYFW / ROUND-UP

With London Fashion Week starting today, let’s take a look back at the best that New York had to offer. By the looks of  things, we’re all in for a right old miserable time this winter.

With the first look at AW13, New York brought contrasting textures and materials, sharp lines, geometric shapes, quilting, panelling and an abundance of leather for both menswear and womenswear. And if you’re in the market for a bomber jacket next season, you’re spoilt for choice.

Womenswear tailoring was oversized and masculine, breaking up a palette of black and greys, with flashes of cobalt blue and bright purples. Make up was natural and understated with hair worn down and centre parted. For the boys, the look was slick side partings and short fringes. The message wasn’t so much ‘girls will be boys’, but rather, girls will be MEN. Masculine shapes for upper wear teamed with sharp leather skirts and thigh-high boots put the girls firmly in defense mode, with the boys swathed in impenetrable bomber jackets, kilts, shorts and leggings and lace-up boots. If New York is anything to go by, next season your clothes will also be your armour.
