Cara Delevingne in Burberry at Cannes 2013
Instead of focusing on one “Eurotrash Person” today, I decided to highlight an event, at which all of my Eurotrash peoples were in attendance. What a congregation of couture dresses and fancy pants. Cannes, Antibes, Hotel du cap, Moncler after party, amFAR, Sharon Stone and of course, a red carpet. How can we know the intimate moments of last week’s French Riviera VIP-fest? The answer is, we can’t. But, using your wildest imaginings, complete with a catalogue of Roberto Cavalli gowns, as they say in colloquial Italian, c’arrivi. (translation: you’ll get there. undertone: ostensibly). Life is but a dream. So row, row, row, your yacht gently down the Mediterranean and enjoy these photos of my dearest amici.
Been working at the pharmacy all week and haven’t even had time to respond to emails on my down time, let alone blog. This is also quite possibly because I spent the past 2 nights reading 50 Shades of Grey. It’s lame, so lame… but also very sexy – if I may say that here. I’m hoping to finish the book on my ride to work, which should be starting in 5 minutes.

Another one of my favourite Missoni ladies, Bianca Balti, is also one of those Eurotrash muses I like to talk about. So much so that Lisa Nishimura sketched and pixeled her up for me! Why is Balti eurotrash? First of all, she isn’t Britney Spears famous. Eurotrash prefers a small, but astute following. If you catch a glimpse of her, she always looks perfect – none of this stars are just like us bullshit hiding under a baseball cap without spanx. Secondly, she can make jeans and a tank work fucking miracles on a Fendi peek-a-boo bag that costs more than your last 2 mortgage payments. Bianca Balti. Remember her name because chances are, she won’t remind you.
Bianca Balti and Margherita Missoni. Two european women who are style inspirations for this little lady. Balti, the sexpot. Margherita, the nouveau hippie. Balti, the bad girl. Margherita, the ostensibly not-so-bad-girl. If there’s something I try to incorporate in my style, it’s precisely a mixture of sex appeal and innocence.
A pair of vintage glasses, which are almost always on my face, add a touch of nerd to any outfit – wear them with a low cut shirt, exposing a questionable amount of cleavage, perhaps even a pop of lace and now you’re going places. Remember: skin is an accessory – added to the look rather than covered up by clothing.
Here are some random photos of both eurotrash girls:
