This Weeks Girl Crush: Zoë Kravitz

It’s been a while since we did a woman crush, man crush or any crush for that matter and this week’s girl crush is definitely a style genius… oh and she’s also an actress, singer and model ( talented is an understatement).

Zoë Kravitz; the 27 year old daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, is someone we’ve had on our radar for quite some time now, but never shouted through the roofs over how stylish and talented she really is…until now! Making her runway debut for the Balenciaga 2016 Spring show she completely juxtaposed the dress she wore; lace, cream and extremely feminine worked wonders with her piercings and tattoos.

One of the main reasons she’s our girl crush of the week is because of the absolute effortless ways in which she pulls an outfit together; she often goes for that grunge look during the day for her off duty looks, but come night she can work elegant glam and for this we applaud her. Also we can’t help but love the fact she works geek chic and a little bit of menswear, something not a lot of people can do well. In recent interviews she talked about her love for loose fitting clothes stating she finds them much more sexier than anything that’s tight fitting.

Oh and if you hadn’t noticed she’s always got a super stylish pair of sunglasses on; totally fitting in with her A-List persona.

The AW16 Versace Campaign

The year of the controversial campaigns; first Calvin Klein released their new campaign with some slightly provocative image and that caused the internet to start talking about the inappropriateness of their campaign, next was Jack Wills which was criticised for showing models in their underwear which viewers said was not appropriate for their younger audience… and then we have Versaces fall/winter 16 campaign.

The most recent campaign for Versace features several models in different scenes around Chicago, Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid being just two of the models. It is in fact the campaign photos with Gigi in them however that has caused the most controversy; she is portraying what looks like a mum and people online were quick to point out the fact Gigi is so young and that this isn’t a realistic image… completely disregarding the positivity of a racially diverse family in the image.

Donatella Versace was quick to defend herself following the criticism and controversy of the images by stating:

“My name is Versace- I don’t know how to do things quietly” pointing out that her campaign images are always bold and spark opinions. She also went on to say “that is just my blood and my family. We make a noise, shout loud”. The images aren’t just about showcasing the clothes but also have a story behind them and the recent campaign is all about the women who have their own business and family and how they still remain ‘fierce’ in every aspect of their lives. Donatella said she wanted to show off her day clothes with this persona of woman in mind.

Donatella has worked with so many supermodels in her time, such as the likes of Naomi Campbell and therefore choosing Hadid and Kloss as two models for her recent campaign would have been an easy decision.

Donatella and Gigi have a close relationship and there’s no denying that they both enjoy working with eachother…Gigi has appeared in the previous Versace campaign as well as on the runway and also if you follow Donatella Versace on Instagram then you will know that her first ever post was in fact with Gigi Hadid.

What The Fashion ‘It’ Girls Are Wearing:

When in doubt of what of to wear it’s often a good idea to turn to some of our favourite fashion ‘It’ girls for ideas and tricks on what to do to get the best, street style worthy and blogger approved outfit (making the most of what is in our wardrobe.) So what really makes a fashion ‘It’ girl? Well when we look at the girls that we idolise the most in terms of style and wearing what the hell they want to (we applaud them for this) they are the girls that dare to wear the trends to the max, mixing casual wear with night wear and somehow making a trend such as ‘The matching tracksuit’ a thing we actually want to try ourselves.

No matter how tricky the trend they seem to have it all figured out!

Natalie Suarez from ‘Natalie Off Duty’: 

Natalie Suarez; model, blogger and notable figure in the fashion industry is a bohemian goddess, mixing her eccentric and unique style with everyday wear. Going from in the city to by the beach her style never disappoints and capturing all her day to day adventures on her blog ‘Natalie Off Duty’ gives us insight into just what exactly she gets upto and what she is wearing…so we can take note of any trends we might want to try for ourselves of course.

This 70’s style dress is a top pick for Natalia, matching with oversized statement sunnies for a dramatic look and a bucket bag for that easy throw on bag for during the day.

Grabbing a frilly frock when she’s in the mood to show off her feminine side is something Natalie does best, juxtaposing with a leather jacket to add the eccentric grunge/rock side to the outfit.

Creating that dream silhouette in a pair of cropped flares and matching with a cropped summer slip top with a block print to change that all black outfit around.

 

 

 

 

Lucy Williams from ‘Fashion Me Now’: 

Fashion editor, blogger and trend forecaster of course Lucy Williams is one of our favourite ‘It’ girls in the fashion world. Her chic style makes us forever envious and she captures the casual trend ever so well it looks effortless.

Lucy plays opposites against eachother, mixing a pink slogan tee with a black miniature bag and black oversized sunglasses. A miniature bag is cute and although not always practical it can be the ideal bag to take out with you when you only need the bare minimal.

The black bomber jacket dresses down an outfit, making it appropriate for a night at the pub or coffee with a friend. Never again will you worry about an outfit being too dressy.
