Fashion Sisters: Imitating our Icons BB & Jackie

Coats/ Denim/ Icons/ Rebel/ Romantique/ Wardrobe
Rebel BB Ballet

Brigitte Bardot as a Ballet dancer and Rebel practicing ballet at the Ballet School as a 15 year old in East Berlin.

As part of our Fashion Sisters series, we are channeling our favourite fashion icons this week, Brigitte Bardot and Jackie Kennedy!

Rebel: Just like me, Brigitte Bardot initially intended to  pursue a career as a Ballet dancer before she was discovered as an actress. Her style is super feminine yet casual,  I especially love her signature  Capri pants and flat ballet slippers.

Look inspired by BB. Below I’m wearing:

Ballet pumps from Pretty Ballerina, floral jeans from Citizen of Humanity, sunglasses from Céline, headscarf from  Hermés, black jumper from Tk Maxx.

Brigitte Bardot Rebel Style Romantique and Jackie Kennedy

Romantique: For this week’s sisters challenge, I chose to style myself like Jackie Kennedy! Rebel always says that I look like her, especially my profile. I can’t really see it myself, but I gladly take this compliment on board! After all, Jackie Kennedy personifies  good taste.

My favourite fashion eras are the 50s and 60s, the most flattering time for women. Jackie Kennedy’s style repertoire included all of my favourite wardrobe items of this time: Sleek shift dresses dresses, A-line mini dresses, trench coats, midi-heeled shoes and fabulous sunglasses, all worn with an inimitable elegance.

 I am wearing:

A-line black mini dress from Max & Co, bug like sunglasses from Chloé, trench coat from Max and Co, mini bag from Gianfranco Ferré.

3 Ways to rock Vichy / Gingham Chic

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Temperatures finally shot up to 29 degrees this week in London! And how we deserved it after weeks of miserable rain!
Time to dig out my retro Vichy Gingham dresses, shorts & shirts!
I can never get enough of this summer essential, it’s an all time classic and you can style it cute or tough!
1. Wear Vichy /  Gingham for work!
Above and below: My blue-white Gant shift  gingham dress is classic enough for work. No excuse to not be fashionable at work!
 2. Wear Vichy and Gingham  girly like Brigitte Bardot!
Girly and cute is this 50s A-line skirt dress from Miu Miu, worn by Kirsten Dunst. Pair it with ballet pumps and a straw bag, irresitable!
3. Rough it up 50s style!
Go rock ‘n tough 50s with a Vichy checked blouse from Guess SS 12. Seen in British Glamour May 2012.

The Brigitte Bardot Vichy Look

Blazer / Jackets/ Dresses/ Icons/ Romantique/ Shirts/ Skirts/ Wardrobe

I love wearing the French Vichy pattern (in the UK called Gingham) which gets it’s name from the French town of Vichy . The Vichy pattern is a checked pattern in the colours blue and red and their pastel cousins. For me, it represents a rural charm, fresh air, tousled hair and Brigitte Bardot, who made the look famous. She wore a classic powder pink dress on her wedding day to Jacques Charrier.

Above: I wear a Vichy checked jumpsuit from Max Mara (and, you would have guessed, Pretty Ballerinas). Below: Kepping it classic in white and pink (Gant shirt). Rebel wears a Vichy Blazer from TK Maxx. French Supermodel Laetitia Casta wearing a Vichy patterend dress.

Ich liebe Klamotten mit Vichy Mustern. Das Vichy Muster besteht aus Karos in blau, rot oder pastellfarben und hat seinen Namen aus der franzoesischen Stadt Vichy. Ich verbinde mit dem Look frische Luft, laendlichen Charm, verwuschelte Locken und Brigitte Bardot, die diesen Look wieder in Mode brachte. Zu ihrer Hochzeit mit Jacques Charrier trug sie ein hell rosanes Vichykarokleid.

Appeal like Bardot

Rebel

Es kommt nicht von ungefähr, dass viele Frauen ein wenig Bardot sein wollen. Claudia Schiffer ist ein einzigartiges Über-Model aber wir wollen eigentlich nicht wie Claudia Schiffer sein, wir deutschen Frauen sind es ja schon – meist eher reserviert, distanziert, diszipliniert, kontrolliert. Ich kann mich nicht erinnern, einmal ein Photo von La Schiffer gesehen zu haben, wo sie herzhaft lacht. Die sogenannten typischen deutschen Eigenschaften sind erstrebenswert für unser Berufsleben aber weniger geeignet für unser Privatleben – ein bißchen mehr von französischer Leichtigkeit gegenüber dem Leben á la BB kann uns nicht schaden. Wie schrieb BB selbst: “Man muss von den guten Dingen profitieren, nichts bedauern oder bereuen, geradeaus stehen und die Freichheit haben, zu sich zu stehen.” Versuchen wir es, weil wir uns es wert sind – ha,ha!
