Refined yet never tame, this modern day Grace Kelly takes deluxe dressing to a new level with sophisticated feminine silhouettes. As the economic state of the world attempts to repair itself, she brings an understated approach to privileged lifestyles of the past and present. Luxury manifests itself with logo-free designs and the most deluxe fabrications, glamorous furs and exotic skins. Dusty neutrals, cosmetic tones and powdery pales act as understated shadows and appear throughout her ladylike ensemble, dispersing their way down from the pearls on her neck to her glove-covered hands and exotic skin pumps. This elegant lady has gracefully stepped forward as the new face of luxury.
