Carla Ginola On; Style Icons & Fashion Addiction

Who is your style icon?
There are three style icons that really inspire me. Some classic ones such as Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel to more in the actuality, Olivia Palermo. I love Olivia Palermo’s style, she knows how to mix perfectly casual chic and always has the latest trends and must haves.

What’s in your bag?

There are a few things I always keep in my bag in case of any type of emergency. First, my phone, I always have it on me… I blame Instagram for this! Second, my Bare Minerals powder with my travel makeup brush. It is very important for me to always keep these two on me as I like to freshen up my makeup throughout the day. Also, along with my makeup I always carry a hairbrush and some hand gel.

What’s your favorite fashion mantra?
There is this quote I really love from Karl Lagerfeld that says “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress”. I find it so true, because we girls when heading out and don’t know what to wear we often opt for a classic black dress and it always turns out to look great. Sometimes, the simplest is the best.

What’s your must have Adriana Castro handbag of the season?
There is this one bag I absolutely love from Adriana Castro and I actually have it, it’s the Mini Carriel Crossbody Python bag that is a pure beauty! Casual yet super chic and edgy It is definitely one of my favorites. I also love her new collection of electric blue clutches and purses.

What’s your favorite fashion designer?
Coco Chanel has always been my favorite fashion designer. Classic and Original. Luxurious with a touch of craziness.

What’s your latest addition these days?
My latest fashion addiction-s (cause I have many) are capes for when I get back to London and will need to fight the cold stylishly. I love how old trends come back and are more trendy than ever. Then, accessories. Recently I have been according a lot of importance to jewelry in all my outfits. Oh and shoes, but that’s a constant addiction! XOXO Carla
