CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA

Charlotte Olympia Dellal (herself) in Bazaar
Spring 2011 Ad Shots


If I could own any pair of luxury shoes - it would be those of Charlotte Olympia... I love that the designers creations are based upon 1940's glamour and old movies. This is the kind of footwear a modern pin up girl would wear complete with interesting details and amazing saturated color!  Favorites of style dandies everywhere from Emma Watson to Olivia Palermo.
I have included photos of the ad campaign for her latest line which is inspired by Carmen Miranda and "Blame it on Rio".
The designer herself is impossibly chic and beautiful -always in her signature red lips and token leopard piece.
Read a great bio on the designer in the Wall Street Journal entitled "The 40's Footwear Fashionista"

  7. I use a digital Panasonic ;) It´s nothing special, so do not worry if you don´t have the newest and best Cannon or Nikon or something like that! I learned to make great pictures with ordinary camera and I think you will also have amazing pictures after trying a lot!

  11. to answer your question - i think i actually got that necklace from forever21. the cheap gold paint has faded which gives it a cool vintage look. xo
