Today is the first day of Fashion Week! The best week of the whole year to be a girl in New York! There are so many shows, events and parties. Everyone is on top of their style game. It’s fabulous!!!

In honor of this special week, I’ve decided to dedicate all of my posts to the chicest stylemakers in the fashion world. And who could be chicer than the Grand Dame of them all, Carolina Herrera! I’ve had the opportunity to meet her a few times and she’s utterly impeccable and so gracious. I actually walked to Bergdorf Goodman in a blizzard to make it to her book signing! Ok, it was only a block but still, I wasn’t about to let a little snow stop me from getting to my style idol. Hopefully, Ms. Herrera will inspire you to be a stand up straighter and be a little chicer today too!

    Huge CH fan here! Love the image you used.

    BTW: on another note, Paris Hotel Boutique has the Osa Johnson sequel with giraffe cover. Good luck!

    She is a very elegant lady and an excellent role model.

    I’ve always wanted to be her or at least have her wardrobe – and be able to fit into it!! Such a classic beauty!

    Agree with everyone – Carolina is truly chic. I love the white shirt discipline too!

    Beautiful picture of Carolina. I also noticed the zebra console; I could never pull that off in my house, but it is gorgeous in hers.

    I love the stories her daughters tell of traveling with their mother and how she always looks impeccible even after a long haul flight or a camel ride in the desert. There is no way I could wear a white shirt everyday and look as good as she does! She’s very impressive!

    How could she not inspire? She is the epitome of chic. Like DVF, Carolina shows us that travel need not be anything less than glamorous. She is always fit, trim and impeccably put together. Here’s to fashion week!

    Hi RJH dl H,

    I thought the Oscar de la Renta collection was amazing! It looks like safari was the biggest trend to come out of Spring 2008 fashion week.

    I admire and yearn to wear so many designers. I thought the Michael Kors and J. Mendel shows were really beautiful. I always love Thakoon, Peter Som and Derek Lam. And I wear a lot of Phillip Lim because I can afford his clothes.

    When you love fashion, it’s pretty hard to narrow your favorites down. I can find something fabulous from every collection. I just need to start working harder so I can actually buy them soon!
