Nina Garcia - is wellknown person in fashion world. She is the best known for her appearance as the unerring, formidable fashion judge on Bravo's hit show Project Runway. an elite authority in tha indastry, she has worked in fashion houses and fashion media, with everyone from Marc Jacobs to Elle to Marie Claire.
I would like to tell you Nina's thoughts about style icon. She think that REAL STYLE ICON should know:
# How to edit. She only buys what she likes and what looks good on her.
# To invest in "the bones"...
# 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.
# And the power of accessories. Done just the right way.
# A good tailor.
# How not to be the fashion victim. SHE NEVER BUYS INTO THE TRENDS AND SHE NEVER CARRIES THE "IT" BAG.
# It is not about the money.
# How to mix it up.
# How to be imperfect. She understands that every day is not a photo shoot.
AND THAT IS STYLE
