Emma Watson

The only time I really enjoy writing about celebrity fashion is during red carpet season. You won’t find too many “how to get [insert celebrity name here]’s look from [insert some event here]” posts on ChiCityFashion. But every once in a while, there’s someone who really sticks out to me and I just have to discuss their fantastic style, what they’re doing right, and why they’ve become such a fashion icon. So let’s talk about Emma Watson…

Joe Zee’s ELLEments of Style on Rue La La

For twenty-five years, ELLE magazine has been at the forefront of fashion. Now, in 2010, ELLE has grown to over 6 million readers, and is considered the “Modern Voice in Fashion”.

To celebrate the Oct 14th release of ELLE’s new book, “The ELLEments of Personal Style: 25 Modern Fashion Icons on How to Dress, Shop, and Live”, a look at twenty-five modern day fashion icons and what really makes their styles work, Rue La La is launching a limited edition ELLEments of Style Boutique on Thursday Oct 14 – Friday Oct 15 that will give members the opportunity to accessorize like the fashion icons featured in the book.

Curated by ELLE’s Creative Director, Joe Zee, the ELLEments of Style Boutique will feature must-have accessories reflecting the style of some of the iconic women in the book including:

  • Charlotte Rampling
  • Milla Jovovich
  • Minnnie Mortimer
  • Candace Bushnell

ELLE believes a way a woman wears her clothes and accessories and where she finds her inspiration has the ability to transform how she feels. They can brighten a mood, exude confidence, and give her the modern edge to take over the world. This not-to-be-missed opportunity will give Rue La La members exclusive access to ELLE’s notion that style is not where you buy the dress or how much the bag costs: Style is a Lifestyle.
