This week at Closet Couture we’ve chosen Carine Roitfeld and Franca Sozzani at French and Italian Vogue to represent the ways in which these two dynamic and inspirational women effortless transgress looks from the runway to their every day working lives. As being some of the most influential style bibles abroad, these European editors give us fresh ideas to transform our wardrobe to achieve the reality to runway look.
As editor and chief at French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld embodies the epitome of chic Parisian. With a super chic and cutting edge style, Roitfeld is elegant and gracious, and brings to light the ways in which a working woman and mother dresses with a smart sense of haute couture, while still remaining grounded in reality.
To get Carine’s look: Choose both a black leather jacket and pair it with a knee-length skirt, such as this Geren Ford coat and Mischen skirt. To go along with this cutting-edge look, we’ve chosen Christian Louboutin zip-up booties and a black Jimmy Choo clutch.
As a visionary and innovative editor at Vogue Italia, Franza Sozzani has an innate sense of style that is Italian through and through. With an artist eye and a strong sense of style, we love the way Franca brings glamour off the runway, adaptable for a practical, everyday dressing.
To get Franca’s look: We suggest pairing this Nina Ricci Coat with a classic black Alexander Wang dress. True to Italian form, we’ve selected these Prada ‘ombre’ pumps with a black snakeskin clutch, black scarf, and Linda Farrow sunglasses.
