My Style Crushes

Friday, 6 July 2012


Often times I'm asked who's style I'm inspired by or who I look up to as my style icon, and these four ladies instantly come to mind.
When it comes to Miro, Olivia, Hanelli & Solange, I have what you may call a style crush on all of them.

Miroslava Duma

This petite beauty has been snapped by the likes of The Sartorialist and has become a favourite by other Street Style Royalty. Her effortless style paired with her perfect accesories always leave me in a state of awe.


Olivia Palermo

I've had the joy of meeting this beautiful lady, who is just as gorgeous in real life as she is on screen. Her style is the epitome of elegance. From the way she dresses to the way she walks. Love.


Hanneli Mustaparta

Hanneli, Hanneli, how cute can anyone one be? This Model/Photographer is minimal and chic all in one. It's always a joy going through her blog!



Solange Knowles

Let's talk about my girl. Solange's style is unique in every sense of the word. I love how she mixes unexpected colours, textures and silhouettes but still maintains a certain air of ease.

I love Solange as well! Her style is amazing. I love that she is embracing her natural hair and that she incorporates African prints into her outfits.

My other style crush at the moment is Miley Cyrus. Her outfits look so effortless but she looks lovely at the same time.

I also love Olivia Palermo too :) x
