Check out Kate Lanphear for CFDA finalist designer Eddie Borgo, above. She’s not a famous starlet or model. Kate is editor for Elle magazine. Since the dawn of street style photography– a group of photographers dedicated to following the fashion flock at Fashion Weeks around the world– Kate has become a style star. (She is so big in Japan they fly her out just to make appearances! So unheard of for magazine editors.) Looking at the photos, below, you cannot deny this chick looks good. Not in the traditional sense of looking like a well-dressed lady, but more like a swaggering rock star. She mixes her YSL Tribs with Raquel Allegra shredded Ts, Hermès studded cuffs and thigh-high boots, all the while looking pixie-ish on one angle and bad-ass in another. I’m still clamoring for that zippered pea coat!
