Who's that Girl; Valentine Fillol-Cordier





For Valentine Fillol-Cordier life is everything but boring. This Paris-born, London-based beauty started modeling at fifteen. With her fresh boyish face and beautiful dreamy eyes she conquered fashion community in a minute. She was a face for brands such as APC, UO and Whistles and one of the frequent faces in magazines such as Nylon, Lula or Purple. After she seduced the photo objectives with a face that slightly reminds of Kate Moss in the 90s, with her style she enchanted many so she began to style editorials and runaway shows. Not only that she became muse of few designers, she is muse of many fashion-obsessed. For Charles Anastase she is not just consultant, stylist and right hand, but also a great friend. And probably his biggest muse; styling of the spring collection was just wonderful, lot of simple garments brought to life through bit of colored details in transparent way. She also styles lookbooks for Charlotte Olympia shoes and is contributing editor of Dossier. Not just the muse of the photographers, seems that video cameras loves her also, so you can see her performance in many short fashion films, act in ad directed by Wes Anderson and dance in rock video. Talking music, for a while this girl was one of the vocals in UK band The Big Pink. Talking friends, if you are visitor of hip places you can see her with Alexa or maybe Tennessee. She is also friend of Skye Parrot, photographer and co-founder of Dossier magazine. And talking style, she knows what she does. She loves menswear that wears in very elegant and feminine way. In a vintage dress and Charlotte Olympia heels she looks like she popped out from some couture show. Elegant, but never too polished, fresh but always bit vintage. I would say Marc Jacobs girl with French manners. And she is not trendy but is inventor of the trends. Not only she was dating Jamie Hince way before Moss even heard for the Kills, she was wearing Charles Anastase Dungeon boots before the Jeffrey came out with the name Lita. When she cut her long messy hair to a bob with bangs in manner of Anna Karina (same haircut had the Charles Anastase spring runaway girls) you can even more feel that French scent. Not to mention she has beauty mark on cheekbone. And yes did I mention she has more polaroids than you and me together… And that from the all interviews with her I read, she sounds like a really quality, smart and self-confident young women. So that makes Valentine the perfect choice for this belated first post in the New Year.

Thanks for all your lovely comments, dear. :)
I love this post, it's very inspiring, makes you want to put effort into your daily wardrobe attire and not just sloppily be clad in yesterday's jeans and a sweatshirt.

This are some of the very good dresses. Dresses are an obsession for women. I usually give dresses to my beloved on regular basis. We would never see this great styling without you bringing this to us.
