There are some girls known as It Girls of the XXI century, mainly of the last 3 years when the blogs started having more strength in the fashion world. These girls are said It Girls because they inspire others girls around the world with their fashion choices. People also seem fascinated by their "perfect" lifestyles, the parties, the friends, the vacations, the fame. I'm talking of course of Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, Laura Conrad, Chloé Sevigny, Blake Lively, Kate Moss and the one and only Charlotte Casiraghi among others.
Although I recognize the fashion sense of these girls and believe they are trend setters all over the world I'm not the kind of girl that can name only one or two woman who inspire me. Actually I'm a lot more fond of the divas from the past than these girls from nowadays. Right now everyone is a trend setter, you can be one, just by posting your looks online or inspiring people around you. It's difficult for me to say that one girl is the It Girl, that she's always perfect and she daily inspires me because that really doens't happen to me... Mainly if we are talking about girls that the only job I know they have is to show up. It sounds a bit odd for me... But maybe it is just me, that never had ONE favourite band or ONE teen hero. I just go with the flow and enjoy what it's given to me everyday.
All this to say that I'm going to show here the outfit of one girl, not because she's known as a It Girl but because I loved the look from head to toe. I'm talking about Olivia Palermo in the Couple of the Year red carpet, two weeks ago in a stunning Marchesa. A neutral dress with bright shoes is not a new formula, but who said we are not supposed to repeat what was done in the right way? I saw the dress before but it looks just perfect in Olivia, with her pretty smile, simple make up, the red "Wizard of Oz" shoes, the Club Monaco sequinned clutch and the classy hairstyle. Well done girl!
Yap, look at them... True or false, that's why they won the prize!
