Hanne Gaby Odiele: Street Style Icon

Models look great: that's pretty much a fact. On the runway, on the street, putting the recycling out; the old adage applies that they would look amazing in a bin bag. However, few understand fashion as innately as Belgian-born model Hanne Gaby Odiele.

Adored by designers and street style bloggers alike, her delightful mélange of designer and vintage look effortlessly chic completed with a dash of humour. Attempting to create a formula for Hanne's dressing ethos proved to be near impossible - imagine if we could simply follow a few steps to look as polished as that every day! - though I did try to put together a few guidelines for creating Odiele-like outfits..
No guarantees of success, but fashion is about having fun and expressing yourself: Hanne's bag exactly. Try out different combinations from your own wardrobe, and most of all, enjoy it!

    I swear I used to be married to this gal. Back then she was called Martha Lumpwood and she worked at Marty's Diner in Flatbush, Ohio. One night we got wasted together on Jack Daniels and eloped to France. Got 'married' in what I now realize was an abandoned doll factory by a junkie priest called Charles-Louis. We were so fucking high.

    Anyhow, good to know she's doing OK.


    Shes pretty and I like her taste in cotas - always a good thing
