Rianne ten Haken looks fresh and natural for the March cover of L’Officiel Ukraine. Two thumbs up.
I love all the outerwear I’m seeing from NYFW – the oversized coats delivered with a laid back poise, and many with a play on 70s style that is so “en mode” right now. Lots of fringe, felt, denim and wool. Even though not depicted above, there was A LOT of fur, too. Tommy Ton and A Love is Blind both captured the women (and and men!) out in the elements. Between the clothes and weather, there is a definite sense of movement in each photograph. Romantic, in a way.
Don’t forget to watch the Academy Awards Sunday!
I love the play on this ’70s suit J.Crew is doing. Cheryl Tiegs sure rocked it. Shop here.
This week’s The Edit is spectacular. From sultry suede à la Gucci worn by Malgosia Bela in her editorial photographs (see here), to the spotlight on this saddle bag, the ’70s are quietly having a moment. A must read in this issue? The piece on Aerin Lauder and the making of (another) Lauder empire. Read here.
Fortune just released their 40 Under 40 list and while such a list often comes with speculation and a few jealous naysayers, I find these sorts of lists rather intriguing. The magazine asked their class of their 40 Under 40 what they would tell their 20 year old selves. Here are a few replies I personally connect with at present in my life:
It was the same advice that I gave myself when I was 20, which is, any time you have a difficult decision, imagine yourself as a 90-year-old looking back at this moment. What decision would you wish that you would have made? Go forward and look backward. Nick Woodman, Founder & CEO of GOPRO
Construct your own definition of success, don’t let the world do it for you. Just because someone puts a carrot in front of you doesn’t mean you have to chase after it. Michael Patterson, Partner, Highbridge Principal Strategies
I would tell myself that life is going to be really, really unexpected and not to be easily discouraged about whether or not I picked the right class. You never know where you’ll end up and just have to keep moving forward. Vijaya Gadde, General Counsel, Twitter
Visit your mother more often. Nate Morris, CEO, Rubicon Global
Keep up that relentless determination but couple that with some faith. You’ll find that you spend less time managing your anxiety and fears and more time getting things done. Tristan Walker, Founder & CEO, Walker & Co.
