"Style is the opposite of fashion."
I hope you will find this post interesting, as I take a small detour from an outfit post. I have had, in the past, a series on the blog called Style Crush. This is where I featured women, who I feel, have a great sense of style. Unfortunately, because I don't want to be fined for accidentally using images that are protected by copyright laws, I felt the need to take down the previous posts. This makes me sad because I featured some incredible women. Since I don't want to end the series, I thought I would find another alternative to bringing this information forward.
Today, I'm presenting a woman who most would think I wouldn't feature. Her style is unique, unconventional and very quirky. Might I say, the farthest thing from classic. But who says classic has to be boring. On the contrary, I love great classic pieces, but I also love and appreciate individuality. One thing about this reluctant fashion icon, is that her style is far removed from the usual fashion insider who we normally see photographed in the latest fashion trends. Alone she stands with her ability to make quite a statement. Who am I gushing over?...
Today's Style Crush is the one and only - Lucinda Chambers. Lucinda Chambers is currently the Fashion Director for British Vogue. I first became aware of her while watching the now cancelled video series on Style.com, where they asked persons on the street what they're wearing. The host asked Lucinda what she wore and she proudly stated Marni, and then told us that her earrings were from a gift shop, and that she paid very little for them. I remember thinking, 'I love her look. There's just something about this woman.' After this brief encounter, I became a huge fan of Ms. Chambers. Since I don't have any images to present on Lucinda's eclectic wardrobe, please make a point to search Lucinda Chambers on Google Images and take a look at her diverse, strangely wearable and interesting style of dress. You'll be left with the understanding to why she stated, "Style is the Opposite of Fashion." And now, please enjoy a video of Lucinda being interviewed by SHOWstudio. Enjoy!
