Charlotte at home in London (love the leopard shoe collection) from a spread in Harper's Bazaar, October 2010
London based shoe designer Charlotte Dellal is a great example of a young Lady that transcends her so-called "It-girl" status and proves that fabulosity is not momentary and that style is eternal. Dellal has this amazing forties-inspired look that's at once simple, glamorous, quirky and super classy. Think old-hollywood wavy hair, red lipstick and red nails, hats and head pieces, and of course high high heels. She also scores massive points with us for doing leopard and doing it often, and well. Beyond the perfect styling we also love that she sports a sense of humour and playfullness- this is reflected in her designs for Charlotte Olympia as well. For her latest collection she looked to legendary Brazilian starlet Carmen Miranda aka "the woman in the Tutti-Futti hat". We're talking sky-high platform heels as pint-sized Carmen herself would always wear, banana clutches and fruit adorned shoes. oooh la la.
Its no surprise that Charlotte has "chic" running through her veins- she's the daughter of Brazilian model turned socialite Andrea Dellal- a Lady of impeccable style who will eventually get her own mention here at the Lady Book. And it's not just her mother but her siblings as well who are fixtures on the international scene- younger sister Alice is a bit of a wild-child punk model famous for sporting a half shaved head and art-dealer brother Alex who has been Charlotte Casiraghi's boyfriend for years.
