Friend of the Blog #2: Garance Doré

When I grow up, I want to be Garance Doré – illustrator, blogger and generally awesome French fashionista (who coincidentally dates the other person I want to be when I grow up, Scott “Sartorialist” Schuman).

She is not stick thin, she is has notoriously curly hair and she manages to style each outifit with that quintessentially French, je ne sais quoi of simplicity and sophistication. She is the champion of the man’s watch, the red lipstick, the top-knot and the denim shirt. Her photopgraphs ooze intensity and clarity of subject and her illustrations are light and fresh, the sort of things you’d want on a wall size scale in a café. She does yoga, drinks champagne and generally looks like she’s having a good time. From what I can tell, she lives this perfect life all without pretention and snobbery and with gratification for every trip she gets to make (think Cannes, Tokyo for Lady Dior, Miami for a shoot).

Do chicks come any god-damned cooler than this? I don’t think so.

Happy Friday peeps, one more until semester’s over!
