All black mystery: in Paris

Turns out there are multiple ways to create a mysterious look out of an all black outfit – and I snapped several of them in the same place a few minutes apart. The first was edgy layers, the second urban Zorro, the third consisted not of any sheer blouses or Gaucho hats, but of a beautiful face shrouded in a black scarf.

Urban Zorro: off duty in Paris

Someone once left me a comment on a photo of this outfit that simply said: Flyest. Zorro. Ever. It stuck with me because, it’s face it, that’s a pretty cool compliment. That’s the power of a black sombrero cordobés; a wide-brimmed, Spanish style hat. The one worn by this model has the creased crown of a fedora and a chain band that makes it feel…

Wet, black and edgy: in Paris

Manstyling in Paris: Esther Quek

With her unfailing ability to rock a man-style look, Esther Quek is well justified as a street style darling. Though sticking to a monocrhomatic palette, she made this black suit stand out by use of clashing stripes and checks, along with the finishing touch of a white flower lapel pin.

Erika Labanauskaite after Just Cavalli

While I hazard to use the phrase “the next anyone” it’s awfully tempting to draw comparisons between Lithuanian beauty Erika Labanauskaite and one-time-model-come-actress Abbey Lee Kershaw. With sharply side parted hair and a chunky knit scarf, she gave an intense stare for this street style portrait after the Just Cavalli show.
