I don't know when I first met Stella, of Stella's Wardrobe, but I'm pretty sure I've shot her before, at previous fashion weeks. She's also in a recent post. She also might look familiar to you if you've been to other blogs, because she's gone global all of a sudden. 19, and she's like everywhere, including yesterday's Evening Standard. I've done the classic top to toe 'streetstyle' shot of her the previous day (will post eventually)but this time, I've chosen, just to mix things up a bit, to deconstruct her look.
The thing about Stella is, she's really really nice: just one of the sunniest souls I've ever met. She became part of a group of lovely friends that we hung out with this week, had lunch, etc, and I kept forgetting her name. 'Stella', she'd say, again, with a smile, and I thought of a trick to remember: Marlon Brando. I coulda been a contender. Except that line's from On the Waterfront, 1954, and when he's screaming Stella! in the street, that's Streetcar Named Desire, 1951. Neither of which film I've seen in its entirety. Yet.
The definition for 'stellar' is: stel·larAdjective/ˈstelər/
1. Of or relating to a star or stars: "stellar structure and evolution".
2. Featuring or having the quality of a star performer or performers.
Stella is wearing: Christopher Kane skirt, Topshop fur cape, and shoes by Kurt Geiger.
Check out her blog. She's brilliant, and mark my word, she's gonna be a serious contender.
