This lady has been popping up on street style and fashion blogs all over. I first saw her on The Satorialist and Garance Dore in YSL boots and a leather zipper dress (see picture above). I loved that outfit and especially the zipper detail. Then I saw her again (on The Satorialist of course) at Paris Fashion Week wearing a Balmain jacket, colourful Josh Goot dress and her trusty YSL boots. I was so inspired by that outfit that I posted it as a style inspiration. So naturally I wanted to find out who’s that girl? And I did. Her name is Christine Centenera and she is a Fashion Editor and stylist for Harper’s Baazar Australia.
I love the rock and roll sensibility of her style. Apparently she is ‘a self-confessed sucker for anything with studs, metal detailing of patent leather. Perferably all three at once’. She also considers her ‘insanely high’ instep a genetic gift that means that she cannot wear flat shoes! (Source: Harper’s Bazaar Australia). I thought that was pretty amusing. Even though Christine wears a lot of high-end designers, such as Balmain, YSL and Gucci, she still seems really approachable. I think that is a triumph of great style! She is definitely a worthy style muse.
