Franca Sozzani Inspired

Even in the rain during Milan Fashion Week, Franca Sozzani, the long-standing editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, looks perfectly put-together. The midi skirt is growing on me, especially since I follow Ridgely Brode, who is a big proponent of the length.

  • I love Franca Sozzani’s style and attitude. This outfit is definitely one that I would copy in a heartbeat.

  • I absolutely love her! She looks completely different to me in every way so I don’t copy her. But I always look out for her in FROW pix to see what she’s wearing. She always looks absolutely herself and so attractive. True style! Her sister has the same hair and also has great style. I love midi skirts btw (I am tall) and think short skirts look so over.

  • Dignified style and signature hair equals super chic

  • Love this image beyond words. Living, breathing glamour. I wish the media would show more images like this, thank you. The only change I would make personally would be a slightly less dainty heel. The tiny ribbon strap doesn’t look stable enough for the active shot, or real life.

  • Even though my legs are fine, I don’t love the look of my knees. MIDI skirts work much better in warm LA where bare legs last all year long.

  • Thisi image and her expression conveys such joie de vivre!

  • Every time I see her it’s like a breath of fresh air. I love her style and I love how she always seems so comfortable with who she is.

  • I love Franca, this is the perfect example of how to age gracefully. She always looks happy and so chic, definitely someone to look up to !

  • I also think she is naturally chic and not only for her clothes.
