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.

Boho babe: Jani Gabriel at ModaLisboa

Portuguese model Jani Gabriel doesn’t need much in order to turn heads: just an easy denim smock-dress dripping in tassels, and a pair of nude suede thigh high boots, both from H&M. Together the ensemble carries a neo-bohemian charm that would make it equally perfect for music festivals as for fashion ones.

Florals + thigh highs: Jessica Stein in New York

I took a bunch of posed shots of Jess Stein in New York on this day in spring – who wouldn’t, with that defiant combination of vibrant indigo floral dress and over-the-knee boots?

One black, one white: boots to make heads turn

There’s something just so Chanel about block black and white, and these thigh-high boots just seemed perfectly fitting of the Chanel couture show as a result.

Truth is, they’re a stylish and practical way to get through winter, allowing you to get wear out of your wardrobe’s piles of skirts and dresses without your legs snapping off from the cold.

The dress that dances: Jessica Choay

Pretty in photos but impossibly gorgeous in reality, Jessica Choay‘s dresses have a life of their own. Like this ruby red one I wore during Paris fashion week, made from shifting panels of the softest silk. You don’t wear it, it floats around your body. It doesn’t just move, it dances. The other spectacular thing about pieces of such beautiful quality is that they don’t…

What’s the word for physically-superior topless sun-bathed Goddess?

Finding words that do justice to models like Joyce Verheyen is the hardest part of my job, on a good day. Physically superior comes close, but at the same time seems unfair to the rest of us who don’t have Goddess breasts, feline eyes, and delicate small noses smattered with an even more delicate sprinkling of freckles. “Beautiful” captures some of it, but not all,…
