If you've been keeping up to date with all things fashion week, you'll know that we've seen a slew of our fave style stars hitting the New York and London circuit. Considering street style now offers as much inspiration as the actual catwalk, some of the beauty looks we've seen on arriving attendees have been out of this world. The attendees? Only our favourite fashion editors, writers and icons — think Elin Kling, Miroslava Duma, Nicole Warne, Taylor Tomasi Hill and many more. A more mixed bag you couldn't find, but one thing these ladies have in common is that they set the beauty standard time and time again. See their signature looks when you click through!
I've never been a big spender when it comes to clothing. Don't get me wrong — I love it all and tear through fashion magazines and websites like it's nobody's business. But I like to have fun with my style without blowing the budget. I don't have a clear-cut aesthetic that I stick to — some days I'll go for a more feminine look with a floral dress and heels, others I'll go edgy with an all-black look. I really dress for my moods, but overall you could describe my style as girlie, simple and light-hearted. Chain-stores allow me to try new looks, colours, prints and trends, and I like letting my style evolve that way. Once I've found a look I love, I'll then invest in some quality pieces to make it a long-term reality in my wardrobe.
Since my clothes are so varied, it's pretty essential for me to have a range of jewellery that can complement any outfit — I find that the latest PANDORA collection really nails that side of things for me. Whether it's thin, intricate silver rings that stack like a dream, pretty pendants or beautiful watches, classic jewellery is the one thing I splash out on, because it's so timeless. Want to see what I'm on the hunt for now? Let me show you. . .

When we sat down for a cup of tea with Swedish street style star/blogger/fashion editor Elin Kling during fashion week back in May, we couldn't have been more impressed with her down-to-earth attitude, happy optimism (even in the face of lost luggage) and her dedication to the fashion game. GUESS' CEO and creative director Paul Marciano obviously felt the same way, saying of Elin "She is feminine, she is sexy, she is super confident and I really love how she perceived the brand. It isn’t just that she is a blogger — what drove me first was her. It was Elin.” Reason enough then for the global brand to ask Ms Kling to design the first collaborative collection for the more fashion-forward extension label for GUESS, GUESS by Marciano. The collection includes denim, leather and accessories priced from $59 for a tank to $279 for an embroidered dress — all signature Kling to us; understated, modern and unexpectedly sexy. You can see it IRL in the Pitt St, Sydney GUESS store and online. We've rouneded up our five favourites for your perusing pleasure.
A new month equals a new batch of fashion must-haves! Spring is the perfect time to re-vamp your style, and we're today as an opportunity to streamline our look. Enter stage right; lots of navy blue, sleek one piece swimsuits, a damn-near perfect leather skirt courtesy of Elin Kling, the season's essential white shoe (yes, really) and enough easy-breezy separates to see you through 'til Summer. Credit cards at the ready? Attack!
When you spy two major fashion icons sporting the same colour on the same night, you know you're witnessing a fashion trend in the making. We're not being flippant either — we're talking designer and TV star Nicole Richie and supermodel Natasha Poly, both showing off different orangey-red dresses and a whole lot of pizazz. Then there was Aussie actress Bella Heathcote impressing us yet again with her chic Gucci ensemble, Kristen Stewart in a hot-off-the-runway Louis Vuitton romper and Lauren Conrad doing us proud in a beautiful leather dress by an Australian designer. That's not even close to all — click through the gallery to see who else made the cut in our Top 10 best dressed list!

She's Sweden's most fashionable export, and now, blogger, designer and editor, Elin Kling, dishes her unique taste in beauty to Into The Gloss. Now I have to admit, she's my style icon and I've always loved her take on minimal fashion, but I was blown away with her refreshing approach to makeup and how she uses it. The epitome of today's modern, dynamic and multidimensional woman, Elin covers everything from the lengths (pun!) she goes to for that "Swedish blonde", to her obsession with perfect nude nails and cream-based products.
Some highlights for your delight, but be sure to check out the whole story:
- "I think when you don’t wear mascara, it looks so much more fresh . . . No mascara is a little more modern looking."
- "In meetings, sometimes people don’t expect too much of me, so I get to surprise them — I like my fragrance to represent the strength in that."
- ". . . I like it when it looks like I don’t have any makeup on. Most people think that if you put something on the eye, you need to see it, but I don’t."
