Bernard Arnault, Miuccia Prada, and More Are Among Europe’s Richest

-------

Miuccia PradaIt pays to work in fashion. London’s Sunday Times released its annual Rich List this weekend, and nearly one-third of the top 25 richest people in Europe work in the fashion, beauty, or luxury goods industries. Even if you don’t recognize the name of the number one richest man, you’ve likely shopped at one of his stores—Amancio Ortega, the Spanish founder and owner of Zara’s parent company, Inditex, is worth a staggering $64.74 billion. Also included among Europe’s top earners is Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH, whose net worth is $32.29 billion. Beauty professionals are included in the mix as well: Liliane Bettencourt, one of the principal shareholders in L’Oréal, is valued at $32.12 billion. And unsurprisingly, the world’s most storied fashion brands are raking in billions: Bertrand Puech, whose family founded Hermès back in 1837, is worth about $24.89 billion, and Alain and Gerard Wertheimer, two brothers with a controlling stake in Chanel, are worth $18.83 billion. Rounding out the top 25 list is Miuccia Prada and her husband, Patrizio Bertelli, who are worth a combined $17.32 billion.

Shop the Look: Good Jeans

Good Jeans

When it comes to denim dressing, Spring ’14 is all about the patch. If, like us, you still regret those unfortunate hippie-dippy patched-up flares from middle school, this probably doesn’t sound like your cup of tea. But the new (and improved) patchwork look is clean, sharply tailored, and, dare we say, pretty slick. Picture tricolor patchwork skinnies with a floaty blouse, or better yet, a quiet, matching denim jacket. To nail the trend with ease, stick to classic shades of blue and look for patterns that resemble large color-blocking rather than traditional DIY patches. It’s unclear whether we should credit Junya Watanabe’s Spring ’14 show or Midwestern farmers for the rise of this style, but one thing’s for sure: We like it.

Keep Your Eye on Style.com’s 2013 Look of the Year Winner, Sara Nicole Rossetto

-------

Sara RossettoSara Nicole Rossetto is proof that you don’t need to be famous or have an expensive wardrobe to become a street-style star. The 20-year-old Italian communications student was snapped by Tommy Ton during the Spring ’14 shows in Milan wearing a crisp white button-up, gold Zara skirt, and Miu Miu shoes. Her image earned the most votes—she beat out paparazzi fixtures including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Giovanna Battaglia, and more—in Style.com’s 2013 Look of the Year poll. Of course, Rossetto’s model-good looks helped. Playing volleyball on the national level, her tall, thin physique recently landed her a spot on IMG’s local “development” board. While her dream is to work in fashion advertising, Rossetto wants to do more runway and editorial first, and loves dressing up for street-style photographers. Here, Style.com talks to Rossetto about her personal style, modeling career, and winning Look of the Year.

Congratulations on winning our Look of the Year poll.
I’m really happy about it! Everybody else was so famous, and I’m a nobody compared with them. I didn’t hear about the poll because I was vacationing in Switzerland for New Year’s and didn’t have any Wi-Fi, so it was a terrific surprise to learn that I’d won.

I have to admit that I didn’t know who you were before researching this picture. You do some modeling?
I am a model, but nobody knows me yet—I’m still “development.” Last year I started doing some modeling in Milan. I’ve always played volleyball and am quite tall and thin, so everybody told me I should try to do something in fashion, which has always been my passion. After high school, I sent some photos to IMG and they told me that I could go and visit them, and I actually signed with them! I’ve done a little runway and would love to go to London and New York. The thing is that I’m really Mediterranean-looking, and in Italy and Milan, that’s not so wonderful because they like blond hair and blues eyes, and I look Sicilian or Arab…

What are you studying at university?
I’m studying media and advertising. My ambition is to do a course in fashion communications, and then hopefully work in fashion advertising. They told me that it’s a hard industry, but I think I can manage that, and maybe modeling will help.

So you go to shows during Milan fashion week?
I really love going to the shows. A couple months before, I look for tickets. My dad used to do loads for shows, so he helped, and I’ve had the opportunity to see Emilio Pucci, Max Mara, Dolce & Gabbana…my favorite show last season was Pucci.

Who are some of your favorite designers? And how would you describe your personal style?
I love Miuccia Prada and the Valentino designers because of their elegance. Personally, I like to be quite simple when I get dressed up, and Valentino is sober but always elegant. Pucci isn’t quite my style because I’m quite sporty, but Peter Dundas knows how to make a woman look sexy, and the colors are amazing for the summer.

Do you dress differently for fashion week?
While I love fashion, I’m not trying to show off when I get dressed for university, so I usually keep it sporty in white T-shirts and jeans. During fashion week, I work on preparing my outfits and wear the clothes I like the most then—I’m already thinking about what I’ll wear next month. What I wouldn’t wear on a normal day I can wear to the shows. I love street-style photographers because they make me feel so important when they ask me, “Can I take your photo?” I’m not the kind of person who would say, “No.” But I don’t actually spend too much on what I wear. I mix Zara—my absolute favorite—with nice accessories.

Who are some of your style icons?
I like the simplicity of Audrey Hepburn and think Ulyana Sergeenko is so elegant—I love her couture line. The Russians are popular, and I like Elena Perminova as well because she’s tall like me, and Karlie Kloss, too.

Runway to Red Carpet: Art Basel’s Fashionable Fetes and a Few High-Low Mash-ups

-------

Kate MiddletonWhile Art Basel Miami Beach is technically an art show, it’s best known for being a place where the fashion, art, and celebrity sets collide to rage all week long. The party circuit kicked into full gear on Wednesday night with a host of soirees, including dinners hosted by Louis Vuitton and Swarovski that brought out notables such as supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Cindy Crawford. The latter chose a Roberto Cavalli body-con dress patterned with baroque swirls and a tweed print for the Vuitton fete, while Kurkova opted for a red long-sleeve David Koma Fall ’13 dress with nude mesh detailing on the neckline and sleeves at the Swarovski dinner. The following day, Louis Vuitton’s Fall campaign face, Michelle Williams, donned a full Vuitton look for the brand’s beach barbecue, layering a navy sweater over a red-and-white striped dress.

Across the pond, Kate Middleton mixed highs and lows on the red carpet, pairing a sparkling Zara necklace with a cream long-sleeve Roland Mouret gown at Thursday’s royal premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London. As the credits rolled, the Duchess of Cambridge joined Nelson Mandela’s daughters and the film’s cast and crew in paying tribute to the revolutionary leader, who passed as the film was being screened.

On Tuesday, Keira Knightley made a return to the red carpet for London’s Serious Fun gala, stepping out in a dress we’ve seen her in several times before—including at her wedding this past spring. For this outing, she added sheer sleeves with embroidery at the wrists and neckline to make it more appropriate for the city’s chilly weather.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

J.Crew Is In Your Home For The Holidays

-------

Like other blockbuster brands, such as Starbucks, Zara, and Rolls-Royce, J.Crew has never, in its thirty-year existence, run a T.V. commercial—until now. In all fairness, the family holiday-themed ad is done in collaboration with MasterCard, but, with her geometric specs, one of the wee members of the J.Crew-clad clan looks suspiciously similar to creative director Jenna Lyons. We wonder if the clip will inspire viewers to make the same connection (or, for that matter, a purchase).
