VogueParisMourns...

SO I cannot believe the news that after ten years at Vogue Paris, the irreplaceable Carine Roitfeld has decided to resign at the end of January.
Vogue UK reports she wishes to focus on personal projects and that her replacement will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
I have no idea who that will be, as much as it will be the most exciting role for the person who steps into her shoes, we have to remember who's shoes they are.
Carine has singlehandedly brought the style bible to the top tier of the fashion glossy ladder during her reign.
She has raised a few eyebrows with her risqué point of view which has seen a substantial increase of nudity within the glossy's editorials, but she has people like myself who can't speak or read French buying her magazine.

It will be interesting to see what she will be moving on to from here, or if the ongoing rumours are true, a Vogue US takeover is imminent.

Anna Wintour and Roitfeld have been rumoured rivals for some time.

But for now, I thought we could enjoy some magical Carine street style moments.










She makes anything look good at any age!

Abbey Lee Kershaw for Mania Mania...





IT seems appropriate after Abbey Lee Kershaw was snapped several times wearing the Immortals ring on street style blogs, that she would become the latest muse and face of Australian jewellery designer's, ManiaMania latest collection.
She oozes sensuality, style and the bohemian essence that permeates this and previous collections from the jewellery label.
It has become a hotly coveted brand by bloggers around the world, with kudos from celebrated blogstar Garance Dore when she was here in Sydney.
Now the NY times blog reports the girls have enlisted cult Aussie model and Chanel face Abbey, who is here to shoot the Portmans campaign for a reported $120,000.
The collection titled Rêve, was inspired by Vali Myers, a fellow Aussie, gypsy traveler and muse to Andy Warhol and Marianne Faithfull.

“We’re interested in the idea of redefining archetypes, symbols and creating pieces of jewelry that become a part of our very own signature style,” Purvis says. Precious stones pop with a newly explored bold and graphic element, as in the metal vagabond cuff that has the whittled texture of wood. A bronze “immortal” ring features an amazonite stone, and pendant necklaces are bejeweled with quartz crystals. Kamsler adds, “Our jewelry is known for being unique and people have said they feel powerful wearing it.”

This combination is a powerful one and is sure to spread like wildfire across the blogosphere and cementing the girls cult-like status around the world.
Fans already include Devendra Banhart, Erin Wasson and Alexandra Richards, I can't wait to see who they are featured on next!
