This wednesday we have some brunette beauties for you including a musician, a photographer, a magazine editor and style queen, and a renowned blogger (who happens to be dating my favorite menswear photographer).
Up first, my spirit animal: Solange Knowles.
She’s multitalented, gorgeous, sassy, and I’ve heard she has a fantastic personality to match.
She’s actually the “celebrity” that got me to start mixing prints and taking risks with fashion.
Let’s just say I’ve got a major girl crush.
But how could you not love her?
Have I told you how much I want/love afros? They’re sassy and perfect.
Did you know that she is moving to New Orleans? I’m dying. The fact that she will be in any 100 mile radius from me is too much to handle.
This mysterious chick has some tricks up her androgynous sleeves: FrouFrouu
That’s all you need to know.
Photography is gorgeous. Dimmed lighting that really lets the characters and clothing speak for themselves.
She also adores black and white photography.
Give me those high waisted jeans!
Her portraits and street style photography is breathtaking. She captures details effortlessly. It’s interesting, because she dresses very androgynously and sticks to muted colors, and yet she is very drawn to bright, colorful clothing and people in her fashion portraits.
And her mixed media! So damn awesome. Very modern yet psychedelic. Real trippy.
She sticks to muted colors and is an obvious fan of black and white.
Not only is her artwork/photography fantastic, but so is her wardrobe.
She has the ability to pull of structured pieces and still look feminine, as well as wear something completely shapeless and give it warmth and body.
It makes no sense. Real humans don’t have this ability.
Like, you’re not real.
Check out her badass photography and mixed media works here.
You know she’s a big deal if I knew the correct spelling of her name off the top of my head: Miroslava Duma
She’s a used-to-be-editor of Harper’s Bazzar (Russia) and is now an international style icon.
My favorite thing about her is that her stye is so versatile. She’s still that adorable tiny girl underneath it all, but she can go from wearing a very dramatic, costume-y outfit to something feminine and girly and then change into a crystal headpiece, jeans and belted patterned sweater…
And pull it off.
How is that even possible?
You can check out some pieces in her closet here.
Last but not least, Garance Dore.
She’s a blogger, photographer, illustrator, business woman…
What’s not to love? I check her blog at least three times a day. It’s so wonderful to see how far she’s come and how much she’s grown. She now has an entire staff for her site and videos, which is why they post so much great comment.
And she really listens to her readers’ requests.
ALSO, LOOK AT HER CHIC, ADORABLE ILLUSTRATIONS!
Gah, they make me so happy.
If you’re interested you can totally buy me my favorite art print from her.
Also, aren’t her and Scott the cutest?
Her photos have such great lighting. They’re usually portraits, and she definitely knows how to make people look good.
Who are you crushin’ on?
