Style icon: Kate Lanphear

Asked about her recognizable style, Kate Lanphear, senior style editor of US ELLE says: "...that's the thing about fashion: you can use it to hide, but it's only magic when you use it to express who you really are."

Lanphear undoubtedly feels the magic of fashion by having an amazing style, recognizable for her platinum hair, love of extremely skinny jeans, alternative t-shirts, studs and rock'n'roll chained jewelry. Her favorite designers are Balenciaga, YSL, Alaia, Givenchy...

Lanphear comes to New York from Australia where she has been working in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar for some time. She claims that at the beginning she felt that she needs to be dressed-up impeccably in order to be a fashion editor, but after a while realized that the glam rock look was her real self.

When I saw Kate's photos on JAK & JIL blog I was astonished by the look - it is striking and yet it is not aggressive, it is dressed down and yet glamorous, it is a brave and well-carried look!
