Style Crush: Shiona Turini

"In college, during a summer internship, I took my first paycheck, walked into Versace and bought a pair of nude leather mules. I didn’t have money for food for two weeks and I was completely at peace with that."  This ladies, was spoken by the Fashion Guru herself; Shiona Turini.

Shiona Turini, former Fashion Market Director for Cosmopolitan, eats, breathes, and is fashion.  She understands the depths of the art and makes it come together to create masterpieces.  Shiona has held several positions in the fashion industry including working right alongside fashion greats like American fashion designer Tom Ford and Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vouge Paris and founder and editor-in-chief of the CR Fashion Book. 

In a recent article with www.thecoveteur.com, Shiona reveals some of her fashion favorites such as Alaïa and admits that she would love to trade closets with Diana Ross, Josephine Baker, and Grace Jones.  Shiona also admits that most of her fashion purchases are crazy, and she uses some of her finds as décor for her pad (she’s such a fashionable Michelangelo).  Check out her Balenciaga shoes strategically planted on her bookshelf below.

Shiona is the queen of crop tops, and she knows how to wear them.  For instance, pairing a simple black, crop top with a studded leather midi skirt is so necessary!

Sometimes too much leopard will make you say hmmmmm, but not on Shiona.  She makes leopard on leopard look stylish.  Choosing gold pumps instead of black ones for this ensemble was genius.  It breaks up the monotony of the leopard.

Shiona can hang with the boys and still look feminine.  This tuxedo dress is fabulous.  It is a different look from the regular cocktail dresses and it screams “boss!”  Every girl should own one.

Oh and she hangs with Solange (see Shiona in the blue).  Whoever hangs with Solange is a fashion beast!
