Style inspiration can come from anywhere.  From a celebrity, from a model, from a photograph we've seen, a song, a video, a poem - anywhere.  Post things that are inspiring your style...  We all have such unique vision, I think this thread will be very interesting!

At the moment I'm really enjoying Alexa Chung's style. I like the way she puts together really pretty dresses and pairs them with something casual, like a pair of boots or a cardigan...I don't think i've seen her in anything I wouldn't wear myself.







Unfortunately a lot of her clothes have a high neckline which I can't get away with (far too chebby for that!) but I tailor around that.

I also really like both Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley's casual style but they're another pair with legs up to heir eyes and skinny malinky's...so I have to slightly alter my stylings.

Kai Z Feng photography; There's a quality to his work that just...it keeps me completely entranced..a lot of them are really intimate and sexy, without being seedy and invading and t's just fantastic. If I could be "shot" by anyone, it would be him.

It's so much fun looking at yours cause I can definitely see it in the outfits I've seen you wear; you remind me of flowers and scented candles (vanilla) and very feminine white gowns etc...looking at people's style inspo is fun, especially when you can just tell (if that makes any sense?)!

Alexa is stunning! She's been my girlcrush for quite a while now, regarding her outfits, there are times where I like them & others when I just don't.

There's this musical I saw last year The Umbrellas of Cherbourg & just fell in love with the clothes that Catherine Deneuve wore, especially the little coats. Same thing happened with Charade, but I'm having a bit of a hard time finding pics, here are a couple, though.

 Your style is very edgy & quirky in my eyes.  I love it.  Lots of little dresses, big eye makeup and it's all very fun!  

Love these flowers...

I like Zooey, she's great. She inspired me to buy a trench, heh, I have never looked back :P

Oh, & B, the picture you posted from Marie Antoinette is love. I adored those scenes in the films, with the simple white dresses & the countryside & the sun ... :heart1:

Anywhoo ... onto the inspiration!

I know Courtney Love is about as far from a fashion role model or inspiration as anyone could be, but sometimes I think she's brilliant.
