I think I prefer Blake Lively's style over her character Serna, on Gossip Girl. Blake lively shows off her granny chic style at the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris.
Here is Blake earlier in the month at the Chanel Fine Jewelry-Night of Diamonds at the Plaza in NYC January 16th. This dress is a little over the top and really can't stand the random positioning of this broach. Bitchy Markus!
ID MAG ON NEIL-
" NEIL BARRETT made his name by getting on with the job. Working since the day he graduated from RCA in the late '80s, this is the man we can thank for men's minimalism, the man who men- including the likes of Justin Timberlake and Ewan McGregor- love to wear for its from-nowhere, going-somewhere aesthetic. Now an English boy in Italy for six years, Neil's nailed independent design through apprenticeships at the best of Italian stallions, Prada and Gucci, and some savvy advice from his granddad. The result? A little label taking on the brand behemoths and winning."
NEIL ON HIMSELF-
"I wear 100% Neil Barrett apart from underwear because we haven't done that properly yet. I mentally dress myself at 20, 30, 40, 50, for when I'm thin and young, for when I'm and old man, or gym-fit"
I love my friend Neil's work. I have had the privilege of seeing Neil's showroom in Milan and I can tell you first hand, Neil is taking men's fashion to the next level with taste and edge.
