Style Icon: Clémence Poésy

It would probably be safe to say that any woman who loves good, classic style must be a bit of a Francophile.  Few would argue that French women reign supreme: with their stripes and their boat-necks, minimal palates, scarves worn 100 different ways, and the annoyingly innate ability to turn the simplest piece into the chicest, most sophisticated thing you've seen all season.

So we thought it was only high time we paid a bit of homage to those good things and added a contemporary young woman to our "Style Icon" files.  Clémence Poésy, the 5' 7", thirty-one year old, grey blue eyed French Sagittarius exemplifies it all. The key to good style is looking like it's effortless. And in the TS lady's department we take our cues from gals like this.  For one, she's approachable- her quirky smiles quickly dispel any of that cool French non-chalance.  She knows how to dress up a striped tee and she knows the value of simple shapes: a relaxed neckline, a straight cut skirt.  But our favorite thing of all?  She takes the best from a man's wardrobe and makes it her own.
