Muse

zpleo1Tom Ford era Carine Roitfeld
I may never wear this outfit but would Carine Roitfeld? As it turns out she already has!! In her Tom Ford days, no less.
On mannequin: Norma Kamali sweater, YSL scarf (as top), Zac Posen for Target skirt, Kenneth Cole NY clutch, boots via ebay


"It was very great to work with Tom because I'm not really working on the clothes...just looking the way I was dressing. The way I was putting my legs...the way I was holding my bags. He take all this from me and after he put it on the runway. So he called me his muse. And it was a great name. Now I lost this name of muse, so I miss it." -Carine Roitfeld

  12. Hi, I just found your blog through Style Odyssey and I have to say I'm quite smitten by the way you style outfits (and any woman who adores Tom Ford and YSL circa the Tom Ford era is a friend of mine.

    I had tried on that Zac Posen skirt and passed on it. But now that I've seen your photos, I had to have it! I just found it on eBay and ordered it!
