'I definitely like the mini trend — I’m a legs girl'

Describing her style as a ‘youthful reinvention’ of the sixties icon Jane Birkin, stylist Caroline Sieber has been cementing her place on best dressed lists since she was handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld as a Chanel ambassador. Credited as the woman who completely reinvented Emma Watson’s style, Caroline originally moved to London to become an accountant before abandoning her day job to work in fashion. After being spotted by Anna Wintour at a wedding and placed on the committee of that year’s Costume Institute Gala, (where she was the only person other than Selma Blair allowed to wear Chanel) Caroline emerged as a burgeoning icon.

Sieber’s personal style is never too trendy and she always juxtaposes feminine pieces with hard edged accents refusing to define herself as a ‘cocktail dress and slinky stiletto’s sort of girl.’ Her wardrobe consists of a covetable mixture of feminine dresses, tweed jackets, leather trousers and striking accessories, such as Christian Louboutin’s calfskin thigh high boots. Her ability to reinvent items is particularly admirable; she is always able to add a fresh twist to classic items e.g pairing a Chanel jacket with denim cut-offs. By staying away from trends (though she does favour sequins and leather), Sieber perfectly blends high fashion with edgier pieces, bringing the spirit of sixties Birkin into 2010. Mixing leather with Chanel boucle, the stylist’s doe-eyed features, endless legs and raven locks ensure she is consistently, perfectly polished.

Caroline Sieber exudes a precise put togetherness that many women lack, everything she wears mends itself together in an effortlessly perfect way and I for one cannot wait to see what she wears next.

An added note, a big good luck to my friends Priya and Rachel for their big move to Australia on January 1st!
