When it comes to fashion inspiration I frequently turn to the young. It’s in their DNA to take fashion risks and be unique. My neighbor, budding fashionista and ultra hip, Isabella Crenna, is one of those youths. It’s no wonder she has her own style, her parents (besides both being utterly beautiful) are both notably creative types. Her mom, Alexandra, an accomplished photographer and her father (Richard, son of Richard Crenna the actor) was a steady cam operator and has a flair for style all his own. Growing up in an innovative atmosphere rubbed off on Bella and fashion is her favorite creative outlet. I am overjoyed to welcome her as our new teen guest editor.
Elizabeth Olsen (sister of style icons Ashley & Mary-Kate) looked effortlessly cool at the L A premiere of Red Hook Summer. An up and coming actress, she has already earned rave reviews for her work in Martha Marcy May Marlene and Silent House, Elizabeth is no stranger to fashion herself. Her look for the premiere was rocker chic and just right for your next crazy fun concert.
What I love best about Elizabeth’s unique look is her motorcycle vest. It’s versatile and can work with dresses, jeans and this summer’s hot trend, cut-off shorts. Her leopard print dress will not only rock a concert but is ideal for lunching at the beach or shopping in your favorite mall. The boots are a superb transitional piece; just right to wear now and will be out-of-this-world awesome come this fall.
Take a look at what I’ve put together to get Elizabeth’s look for less.
