- Self portrait of Ahn Duong
The Tory Burch blog has a great Q & A with the artist Ahn Duong. An exhibition of Ahn’s self portraits at the Sonnabend Gallery is up until December 22nd. Ahn would come to see me at Vogue when she was modeling and her personal style was truly inspirational!
Sometimes when I’m feeling a bit uninspired by fashion (could it be the inches of snow every three days so you can’t wear anything decent outside?), I go back and look at images of women whose style I wish I could somehow replicate. Charlotte Rampling is a favorite–a sensual, yet no-nonsense woman. Her style is so simple, it is more about her than what she is wearing. Yet it is exactly what she is wearing that makes in work.
