International Style Stars: The Chicest of the Spring 2013 Streets
If there's one thing this past Fashion Month has taught us it's this: street style is here to stay. It's become as big a part of Fashion Week as the presentations, afterparties, and shows, and those swarms of photographers outside the venues only seem to be multiplying by the season. Of course, there are plenty of willing subjects. In Paris we witnessed a particularly curious phenomenon: established fashion folk and gussied-up newbies alike making multiple treks up and down the Tuileries path just to ensure that their pictures were sufficiently snapped. A prime example of Fashion Week peacocking? Yes. Are we complaining? No. In fact, we enjoy a stellar display of style just as much as anyone, and sometimes the circus outside the tent is just as interesting as the show itself.
That said, there are certain people who manage to knock their show-attending ensembles out of the park repeatedly — and pretty authentically to boot. There's no doubt in our minds, for example, that Caroline Issa — with her well-appointed menswear looks and coolly chic power suits — actually wears these pieces every day; the same can be said for Yasmin Sewell, Giovanna Battaglia, and Julia Sarr-Jamois too. So, in honor of them and others of their stylish ilk, here it is: our rundown of the chicest ladies to hit the streets of the Spring 2013 Fashion Weeks.
