Emmanuelle Alt, the successor to Carine Roitfeld’s place as Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, wears her signature outfit - a pair skinnies, a blazer or jacket and a pair of towering heels like no one else. Her appearance looks effortless and has a makeup free youthful appearance in front of the cameras. But it’s no wonder she’s so well-versed in the fashion industry since her mother Françoise, was a Lanvin and Nina Ricci model in the 1960s and 1970s.
In 2010, Alt contributed to the successful circulation which increased by 40,000 during the global financial crisis. How did she do it? Her love for nudity. As she puts it, “I am super French. It’s the body, it’s sexuality, it’s part of life.”
Maybe you know her best when she first rose to fame as a Victoria Secret angel. Or maybe you remember her name attached to her hubby, Orlando Bloom. But we know her as Miranda Kerr, Australian model with the incredible girl-next-door look and her beautiful editorials. We just love her dimples (Her model trademark. Cute right?).
Currently, she’s ranked as number 4 on the top 20 sexiest models on Models.com. She’s represented brands including One Teaspoon (which we’ll be carrying soon!!), Christian Dior, Lanvin, Chanel, John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf and Loewe.

Known as Brazil’s top model, Raquel Zimmermann is one of those girls who probably knew that she was put on earth to do just that. She started her modelling career at the age of 14 with friends who convinced her that modelling is something she should pursue. After moving to Japan and going to modelling school, it wasn’t long before she debuted at the spring Chanel and Valentino shows in Paris. Shortly after, she made the cover of French Vogue.
She’s been featured as V’s “Blond Ambition” and Vogue placed her in the “world’s next top supermodels”. Her beauty is absolutely timeless. Her editorial range is impressive and in high demand by names including Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Chloe, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Gucci , H&M, Hermes, Hugo Boss, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Shiseido, Valentino, Calvin Klein Fragrance, Gap, Gucci Fragrance, Jean Paul Gaultier, TSE, Versace, and DSquared2.

This week, we dedicate our tribute post to the first Asian model to ever walk Victoria Secret’s runway, Liu Wen. Currently ranked as 6th on the Top 50 Models Women List by models.com, she has definitely become one of favourite models to watch for on the runways, in editorials, and on the streets. She’s appeared in campaigns including DKNY Jeans, The GAP, Barneys New York, Benetton, Alexander Wang, Converse, cKone, Bergdorf Goodman, Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, Dolce & Gabbana, and Vivienne Tam. What we love about her? She has a unique beauty that makes her stand out and she can look glamour, classic, and fierce.

This week, we dedicate our fashion icon post to Beyonce (or should we call her Sasha Fierce?). Her style to us is like her two favourite designers Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gaultier - feminine, sexy, and modern. As she says it herself “I like to dress sexy and I carry myself like a lady”. We believe there are no other words to describe her. It’s hard to believe that growing up, Beyonce wore baggy jeans and frumpy shirts, isn’t it? She looks totally fabulous at first public appearance after giving birth to baby, Blue Ivy Carter. And we now believe she is perfect - as an artist, actress, and now one of our fashion icons.
Guess whose birthday it is today? (Hint: she sometimes goes by “FLOTUS.”) Take a second to sign her card.
