My first Girl Friday for December is Taylor Tomasi Hill, style and accessories director for Marie Claire US and international street style maven.
Photographed by everyone from The Sartorialist, to Garance Dore and Street Peeper, Taylor is a lithe-legged, flame-haired style muse, from the tips of her bondage-inspired YSL heels, to the tortoise shell of her trademark Norma Kamali cat’s eyes.
Taylor is in natural possession of two of any fashionista’s most useful allies – a great pair of legs and undeniably distinctive tresses. Add to these her edgy, chameleon-like sense of style and her ever-present kick-ass heels and you’ve got yourself an icon in the making. Taylor lists Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens, Burberry and YSL among her favourite designers.
Her style veers swiftly from urban to ladylike to rock ‘n rowl, always with a touch of grit, street, and a zip of sartorial wit. The best thing about her style, though, is that it is utterly effortless and adult in a way that maintains a youthful attitude.
Everything she wears is an inspiration. This a woman who wears something remarkable each and every day. And it’s so nice to see!
