Spotted on the street in Paris – March twenty thirteen – the cool French girl hairstyle of the moment is a soft, loose bun piled directly on top of the head. I spied boho babes rocking this look all over town – from the Buttes-Chaumont to the Champs-Élysées. This look has its roots (hehe) in a top-of-head chignon…but what you’re going for here is more hipster than haute, more backstage-with-the-band than “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”. Forget formality – the key is to make it as soft and loose as possible. If it takes you more than 3 mins. you’re probably doing it wrong. Parisiennes are known for making magic with nothing more than a great pair of jeans, a top, a biker jacket, and a single tube of lipstick. The way they do this is…uhh…I don’t know how they do this – and you don’t either. But I do know that if your hair is of sufficient length, you can start to get your fake French on with this hairstyle – sexy nerd glasses optional.

Mr. Newton at Paris Fashion Week – March 2013. xx
A baby Bardot…spotted with her mom at the Chanel show in Paris on 3.5.13…
Some people say that the half-shaved look is played. I would like to offer these people this humble (and by “humble” I mean smokin’ hot) rejoinder. x
The next time someone asks, “So, what’s your blog about?” I think I’m just going to show them this photo…
Hi – so many photos from Fashion Month to show you guys! Well, actually it was more than one month for me because I did Stockholm Fashion Week just before New York…so I have tons of awesome street style to post from Stockholm, New York, London, Milan, and Paris!
I thought I’d kick things off with a photo of me – hehe. That’s me above wearing my authentic “bleu de travail” aka my authentic French work jacket aka “une veste de la Cunningham“. Jacket purchased in Paris, July 2012…photo shot in Paris, October 2012. More soon… x
Hi – I’ve just returned to NYC yesterday from a month in Paris – it seriously looked almost exactly like this video – except with less macaroons and I didn’t ask a French boy for directions and then go for coffee afterwards. But other than that, yeah almost exactly like this!
(P.S. – How much do you love this video?? It should be the official video for the Parisian Tourism Board – or something like that. The track is great (I used to play it when I DJed)…but the video is beyond great. And you must watch the whole thing…from beginning to end. How did they film the last couple of minutes? Did they rent a helicopter at sunset?? Stunning.)
