STREET STYLE: Miroslava Duma in Christopher Kane
My favorite street style shots are the ones that can double as fashion editorial… the kind when you almost catch yourself drooling and green with closet envy. This happens most frequently whenever I see a new street style shot of my girl crush, Miroslava Duma. If you don’t know Miroslava Duma, you should. The uber-chic former Harper’s Bazaar Russia editor is a street style sensation who puts fashion photographers in a tizzy. Here she was spotted outside of Paris Couture Fashion week in this spectacular dropped waist Christopher Kane that reminded me of a summer sunset. With summer coming to a close, I thought it to be only fitting that we honor the end summer and start NYFW with Miroslava/Christopher Kane summer sunset ladyfingers…

MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler AW’12
Two words best describe Jack and Lazaro’s Fall ‘12 collection: oversized and angular. This season Proenza Schouler pushes silhouettes forward with scaled-up varsity jackets and kimono-wrapped skirts fully equipped with karate-inspired black belts. I’m pining over this look in particular which has an oriental yet all-American vibe.
To emulate this look, I used Brilliant White by CND, Glenn by Julep Nail Vernis and Vinyl by Orly.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Paint your full nail white
2. Using a nail art brush, paint thin red vertical stripes across
3. Apply a black tip along the bottom of your nail
4. Paint a red stripe down the center
5. Using a nail art brush, paint a thinner black line in the center of the red
6. Using a dotter tool (or a bobby pin), apply black dots in between the thin red lines
7. Top it off with top coat
