A true style icon breaks the rules and ignores the trends, but she has these ten basics down pat...
How to edit: She only buys what she likes and what looks good on her.
How to invest in 'the bones': (The classic trench, the little black dress...) and build from there.
How to buy with drama: She goes for that over the top, decadent item. If she falls in love, she takes it home.
The utmost importance of shoes: Lots of shoes.
The power of accessories: Done just the right way.
And a good tailor.
How not to be a fashion victim: She never buys into the trends and she never carries the 'it' bag.
That it's not about the money: She wears her flea market earrings the same way she would wear her diamonds.
How to mix it up.
How to be imperfect: She understands that every day is not a photo shoot.
