Gosh I wish I were in Paris right now, having the time of my life with all the stylish people! It must be a feast for the eyes to see Parisians and fashionphiles strutting their stuff on and off the runway. Denim and record label April 77 didn’t miss a beat when they decided to throw their own party in honor of Paris Fashion Week. I wonder if we’ll see their signature melancholy-stoic models — who look like they went to the Byzantine-Gustav Klimt school of modelling — hanging around the party, looking like they don’t care about how cool they are to be in the company of April 77.

Fashion’s latest It Girl, Dree Hemingway, caught my eye first with her interesting fringed sky-high black heels. As my mind processed her entire outfit further, it hit me that she’s sporting April 77 jeans! Yes, folks. Skinny jeans are still in. Very nice touch, young lady! Dubbed the “runway Twitterer” by Karin Nelson of The New York Times‘ Fashion & Style section, this girl is going places. Thank goodness for models who know how to dress themselves off the runway, not like some other It Girl models — I won’t name names — we’ve been seeing lately.
And thanks for the tip, Mariel Hemingway. If it wasn’t for my own Twitter addiction, I might not have seen this lovely shot!
SHOP THIS LOOK! APRIL 77 Joey Overdrive skinny raw jeans.

WHAT I??™M WEARING NOW A Balenciaga leather jacket, a flannel shirt from the Gap, April 77 jeans, Alexander Wang shoes, a YSL ring.
STYLE CREDO I??™m a pants girl. I just feel more comfortable in them. Lately I??™ve being trying on a lot of pantsuits, like the black Calvin Klein one I wore to their show. The trousers have a shorter Audrey Hepburn length, which I love. Mainly I wear jeans and a T-shirt, with a crazy shoe ??” the bigger, the better. I tried on the most amazing ones at Gucci. They??™re huge platforms with straps that go around the ankle. Phenomenal. Having an accent piece is good. That??™s basically all I do.
ON MY WISH LIST A Rick Owens leather jacket and a Proenza Schouler PS1 bag in python.
