and are set to filter down into our ward-
robes. To avoid looking like a character from the
Jilly Cooper novel “Riders” keep it simple and
chic. Kate Bosworth works it perfectly in her
oversized blazer and matching shorts and
maxi skirt teamed with a pale grey top. High
street store Zara have a great selection of
pieces to choose from.  If you’re afraid
of looking a bit washed out go for
nude toned shoes - guaran-

Magdalena Frackowiak knows how to
work it on and off the runway. Her every-
day pieces consist of comfy basics - denim cut offs,
leggings and checked shirts - cleverly accessorized
with stand out items like her super sharp trilby, which
all add up to a look that's casual yet refuses to be
ignored. And let's face it those cheekbones work with
absolutely everything darling! Magdalena, Glossy

usic Video Director / Designer / Party
Promoter Va$htie aka "Downtown Sweet-
heart" reminds us of the cool girl at school
who was often imitated but never outshone. This New
York City "it" girl has had an enviable career that
includes directing music videos for Solange and Kid
Cudi, starting up clothing label Violette which mixes
her tomboy flair with high fashion sensibilities to
create something truly unique and hosting a weekly
90s themed party that attracts both hip hop heavy-
weights and well heeled fashionistas such as Mary
Kate Olsen, Cassie, Diddy, Mos Def and more. But ca-
reer success aside, we love the fact that she's some-
one who clearly loves what she does and imbues her
work with her inimitable charisma.
