Streetstyle Icon: Candela Novembre

Her outfits may keep on changing throughout the day, one thing streetstyle icon Candela Novembre can always be recognized for is her parting. Whether she has long blonde hair (like two seasons ago), a short bob (like past winter) or a ponytail her hair always falls into a perfect parting. Candela barely wears any make-up and usually hides behind her statement designer glasses. Oh and did we mention her impeccable style?

The Argentine model (who moved to Italy at at the age of 17) has a quirky elegant style. “Virgin Suicides meets Blondie”, she refers to it herself. Now she might live in Milan, this lady usually has that typical Parisian ‘Je ne sais quoi’-look on her face. Candela believes “a happy mind and a happy soul are the best fashion accessories”, so spot her in bold prints and bright colors wearing a big smile on her face.

And how could she not be smiling? Good looks and a dream job as the editor of Lampoon, this mother of two has it all. She strolls around in the latest designer pieces, but has a great eye for vintage as well. Whatever look this Milan based beauty is going for, parading through the streets of Milan with her famous friends Chiara F. and Anna della R., Candela never fails to impress. Just have a glance at our image gallery and you’ll get the idea.

Streetstyle Icon: Caroline Issa

A few years ago nobody really knew who she was, except for the fact that this modest woman always looked stunning. Nowadays, Caroline Issa, publisher and fashion director at Tank magazine and Becauselondon, is everywhere. You spot her a thousand times on many blogs and websites, fashion lovers adore her style and all the designers want her front row. In a short amount of time this British lady (but her mother is half Chinese, her father half Lebanese- half Iranian) developed herself as a true streetstyle favorite, just like she is to us. Come to think that Caroline once studied entrepreneurship and strategy, far far away from anything fashion.

So what about her style? She’s no Anna Dello Russo or Lady Gaga. Caroline’s style is way more sophisticated and humble, but still always strong and elegant. She easily manages it to look feminine and sexy without overdressing and she perfectly knows how to translate trends into her own style. She often pairs here outfits with some edgy shades and her famous red lips.  But what she does share with the first named ladies is that she can wear anything, and without losing her own characteristic style. Just take a look…

Streetstyle Icon: Miroslava Duma

We’ve been taking her picture season after season. With every look she wears she surprises us. Time to take a closer look at Miroslava Duma’s style.

This former Harper’s Bazaar editor is without a doubt one of our favorite streetstyle targets. Within one fashion week she’ll change her looks from sporty to couture and from quirky to classy and manages to always stay true to her own style.

Mira, as her friends call her, mixes Chloé with Chanel and Marni with Acne. She stays high on above the ground in stunning heels and eye catching wedges from Christian Louboutin to Alaïa. Almost every single one of her looks is finished off by a chunky necklace, of which Mira must own countless versions.

And if you thought Mira was just about pretty clothes, you’ve got it all wrong. Besides her amazing style and good looks this pint-sized fashionista has the brains too. She not only regularly collaborates with great fashion titles like Ok, Tatler and Glamour, but also founded her own fashion website called Buro 24/7, which is gaining more and more attention.

Take a look at her style and see why we are so fond of this Russian streetstyle sensation.

Streetstyle-icon: Taylor Tomasi Hill

Taylor Tomasi Hill, no doubt you’ve seen her many times around during fashion month. Or on countless street style blogs, because this American lady, known because of her fierce red hair as for her work as the style and accessories director for US Marie Claire (not anymore though!), has become an absolute favorite of many streetstyle photographers and a real style- icon for many fashion lovers. And rightly so, because although she has a really distinctive style (feminine but always with an edgy and playful touch to it), you never really know what to expect from her. But one thing’s for sure: she has some fine taste.

Taylor describes herself as a ‘clothing chameleon’ (there’s truly no better word for it), because her style is evolving all the time, which keeps her interesting for all the photographers. Effortlessly, she mixes very feminine pieces with more mannish elements.

Last year she has left her post at Marie Claire and became the brand new artistic director for the retail site Moda Operandi in New York, so luckily we keep seeing her around during the fashion weeks, because she’s a true pleasure to watch and get inspired by.  Just take a look at some of her most stunning outfits…
