industrie magazine: the making of miranda kerr

Industrie is a fairly new magazine, founded in 2009 with only 4 issues so far as it is published twice a year. It presents an "independent, in-depth look at the fashion industry, going behind the scenes to chronicle the personalities, stories and defining moments in the world of fashion". Industrie really aims to be unique and not focus so much on current collections and trends but instead provide an insight into the culture of fashion and those who influence and shape it.
It's like the fashion industry's version of a high school yearbook, except seriously more stylish and elegant, showcasing the fashion industry's stars in their best light.

Miranda Kerr. Model. Mother of one. Impossibly perfect.
Yes you heard right, MK went naked for her Industrie Magazine Issue 4 photo shoot. Shot by amazing photographer Willy Vanderperre, Miranda talked about it saying "People should be comfortable with their bodies. It's natural and it's not vulgar, you know. It's always done in a tasteful way." 
If you don't love Miranda, I fail to understand why!

I don't know if it's just me, but i've been seeing sequins everywhere lately - online, in stores, on people in the streets... I've already bought my own sequined piece [outfit post soon] and i can't wait to wear it out. The great thing about sequins is that they come in various colours and forms, and they can be dressed up or down.  Lots of celebrities have been seen sporting sequins somewhere in their outfits whether it be recent or not so it's obvious sequins are loved by many. My personal favourite way to wear sequins is on the bottom half of my body and in a bright colour.

street style: miranda kerr

If someone were to ask me, who are your inspirations/fashion icons/favourite models? Miranda Kerr would definitely be the first to pop up in my mind. It's amazing how this flawless woman can look gorgeous in anything she wears and anything she does.
From the above photos, it's clear that Miranda loves blazers, pants and prints, but at the same time she can be seen in pretty dresses and flowy tops. Her style is very clean and on-trend, if not a bit boyfriend-ish, and she nearly always incorporates black somewhere into her outfits.

launched: shoe mint

So the lovely and on-trend Rachel Bilson has just launched her latest gig ShoeMint. I was so excited when i checked my email 5 days ago to see that i had emails from both JewelMint [Kate Bosworth & Cher Coulter's jewellery version] and StyleMint [the Olsen twins' clothing version] telling me about this new shoe brand! Like most girls, i do have a shoe addiction so this was very exciting news. Rachel Bilson is also one of my style icons and i love that she is the face of ShoeMint.
If you were already a member of JewelMint and StyleMint like myself, you'll know how it works, but basically you sign up and take a quick quiz so they have an idea of your style, and every month you are given a new "showroom" of shoes to choose from and maybe purchase if you like what you see (every single pair of shoes is only $79.98!)
Rachel has teamed up with her stylist Nicole Chavez and shoe guru Steve Madden to design and create their debut collection for ShoeMint. I signed up today (exclusive reader of WhoWhatWear.com right here) and i took the quiz (photo above) and out of the amazing six pairs i was given to choose from, i think my favourites are the Edith in blush suede and the Pauline in wine suede.

Side note: I have fallen in love with the Isabel Marant yoan alpaca-blend intarsia sweater that Rachel is wearing in the ShoeMint shoot... All this rain and miserable weather in Sydney has got me thinking about Autumn/Winter again!
