Style Setters / by laurel

There are few women in the fashion industry whose style I admire more than Elle's Kate Lanphear and Paris Vogue's Emmanuelle Alt. Both women possess an ability to make neutrals and dark colors come alive - not an easy thing to do considering how easy it would be to simply appear 'drab.' They're also free of fussy hairstyles or painted-on makeup, which makes me want to say, "You're perfect. Don't change a thing."

Here are a few shots from the past couple of years that best illustrate their inimitable style:
