Style Crush: Ines de la Fressange

She wrote the book on style, both literally and figuratively. Ines de la Fressange is the poster child for and author of Parisian Chic: A Style Guide. And who is more qualified than she to expound the rules of French chic? Her pedigree is faultless: the daughter of a Marquis, a former Chanel model and muse, the brand ambassador for French luxury brand Roger Vivier (you'll catch her wearing his classic flats or carrying his bags in most pictures) and a fashion designer and style consultant in her own right, Ines is by rights the fashion guru.

In my humble opinion, her style is unparalleled. It is preppy chic at its very best, effortless and timeless. You will never catch her following a particular trend, and yet she always looks modern and fresh. And no one accessorizes a classic button down or Lacoste shirt quite like she does. And then there's that hair...I looooove her hair! I want her hair, and if I ever find the time to have a slightly more high-maintenance cut, I will have her hair!

Luckily for us mere mortals without ready access to the top designers, Ines is now joining forces with Japanese fast fashion chain Uniqlo. So, as of next year, her inimitable style will be available to the masses and, personally, I can't wait!
