THE EDITOR: GIOVANNA BATTAGLIA ENGELBERT
As a fashion editor, newly-minted author of witty style bible Gio_Graphy and reigning queen of street style, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert is, unsurprisingly, a frequent FROWer. Her signature style is vibrant and playful – think feminine full skirts, playful-print shirt dresses and statement-making sunglasses.
Channel her style: with a slogan T-shirt tucked into a textured knee-length skirt; a laser-cut design is bound to win you admirers. Finish the look with oversized pom-pom earrings, bejewelled sunglasses and a megawatt smile.
THE SOCIALITE: CAROLINE VREELAND
Caroline Vreeland – the great granddaughter of ex-Vogue editor Diana Vreeland – is a force to be reckoned with and regularly makes the rounds at New York and Paris Fashion Weeks. The Miami-native is making a name for herself as a singer/songwriter/socialite that’s unafraid to turn heads with her nineties-bombshell-meets-It-girl vibe.
Channel her style: with a black dress and your best smokey eye. You can earn extra style points for a woven-cotton basket bag.
THE MODEL: MARIA BORGES
For a lesson in how to make the simplest of outfits stun, look to Angolan model Maria Borges. When she’s not on the catwalk, you’ll find her dressed in minimalist looks such as leggings and dresses styled with boots.
Channel her style: in leather shorts (preferably with a bow or ruffle detail) teamed with over-the-knee boots – look for a pair with a sculptural heel – a draped camisole top and a longline blazer thrown over the shoulders.
THE MOGUL: NICOLE WARNE
From humble beginnings to power-blogger status, Australian Nicole Warne aka Gary Pepper Girl is the one to mirror if global domination is on your to-do list. As a lifelong lover of vintage, she mixes designer pieces with an array of prints like a true master. She is rarely seen out of a pencil skirt, a dainty heel and the chicest of lobs.
Channel her style: with a power suit, worn open to show off a lace crop top. Nothing says sophisticate-on-a-mission like a white trouser suit – though we recommend sticking to a loose-fit style – paired with sky-high heels and barely-there make-up and a warm, punchy lip tint.
