Armed with her thestreetmuse.it lens, Melanie Galea caught blog-stars Hanneli Mustaparta and Sofie Valkiers on New York City’s sidewalks. Exposed midriffs (think belly-dancer style) were the story, with Hanneli choosing opulent patterning to offset perfectly golden skin, while Sofie looked coolly chic in red stripes on white against porcelain-pale flesh.
Kristina Bazan and Yuwei Zhangzou in NYC, plus Thassia Naves in Paris, all deployed brilliant flashes of color to eye-popping effect. We love Kristina’s pleated clementine underskirt and Yuwei’s New York taxi-yellow strapless dress with candy-hued handbag-‘n’-heels set. Thassia cleverly color-clashed pink with red, while in Paris, Nausheen Shah’s blazing white shirtdress, oh-so-casually tied to the side, was elevated to dressed-up status with accessories and sky-high sandals. Meanwhile, the wrap-effect dress worn by a mystery fashionista in NYC made a virtue of its dramatically uneven hem; this dress says “Accessories? I’m fabulous just as I am, thanks.” We couldn’t agree more.
