Style Icon: Pattie Boyd

20 Mar

There is more to Pattie Boyd’s claim to fame than being the former wife of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Not only was she one of Britain’s most sought after models during the swinging 60’s, she is also a photographer and author, most recently of Wonderful Today: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me, a juicy tell-all of her life as a rock star’s wife.

Anyone who has inspired Twiggy is wonderful in my book. Boyd exemplified rock n roll/boho glam in a timeless way. Trust me, these pictures are not from Street Peeper or this month’s Elle.

I could see Kate Hudson wearing this outfit. So chic and very editorial.

Book Worm: “I Want To Be Her! How Friends and Strangers Helped Shape My Style”

5 Sep


Imagine being in high school and having the coolest girl with the most effortless style sit down and tell you what greatly influences her (and without attitude). This is sort of like talking with Andrea Linett, the co-founder of Lucky magazine and now creative director of Michael Kors. I’ve always admired her candid air in her column Fashion Babble, which concluded every issue of Lucky magazine for over 10 years. Her style, which is greatly inspired by Bob Dylan, is consistent yet always interesting, as you can see on her website I Want To Be Her.

With 50 illustrations of style influences by Anne Johnston Albert of Fashion Babble fame, this book is part memoir, part style guide. It makes it all the more endearing, considering that lots of influence comes from family and friends closest to the author. It goes to show that someone besides an overexposed pop star, can also rock someone’s fashionable world.

I Want To Be Her! How Friends and Strangers Helped Shape My Style is available on Amazon.com
