French fashion blogger Garance Doré, 36, makes up one half of what could be called the most sartorially-savvy couple in Manhattan. While on her own, Doré certainly is a force in the fashion blogosphere, having Scott Schuman, 44, whose site The Sartorialist is one of the earliest and most well-known fashion photo blogs, solidifies their status as the power couple of street-style.
The beginnings of Doré's site stemmed from her boredom and frustration with her job as an illustrator in Paris, and because of the site's unambitious start, Doré was shocked by her overnight success. She started the blog in 2006 and began posting her drawings. More»
Former Italian model Giovanna Battaglia left her hometown of Milan and relocated to NYC early last year to work as a fashion editor for W magazine. Giovanna has been turning heads in Italy for years, and she's quickly becoming a fixture on many US street-style blogs like The Sartorialist and Jak and Jil -- but there's more to Giovanna than her inventive outfits. Though she's spoken about the difficulties of switching careers, she's managed to break away from her modeling past and make a real name for herself as a stylist and fashion editor, and now she's making a name for herself a New Yorker. From quick (and frequent) shopping trips to Barney's to a Welcome to NY party at Cipriani Downtown, Giovanna is learning the ins-and-outs of her new city. Click through to see what this style-icon has been up to since she's arrived in the USA. More»
American model Kristen McMenamy first made a name for herself in the late 80's when she worked at top fashion houses like Chanel, Valentino and Versace. It was during her early years as a model that she developed a relationship with Karl Lagerfeld, and once he adopted her as his muse, her career quickly took off. Known for her androgynous look and her ever-changing hair styles, McMenamy has been a style star both on and off the runway for over two decades. This super-busy supermodel is a mom to four children and also does work as an actress, but based on her most recent appearance--walking in the finale of the McQ Alexander McQueen runway show at London Fashion Week-- she shows no signs of slowing down.
