Stylist and Chanel ambassador Caroline Sieber is one of my street style favourites, but my posts on her style aren’t always well received – mostly on account of the look-of-bemusement-slash-scowl that she’s perfected for the cameras. But not this time. This New York Fashion Week, she was caught on camera – gasp – smiling! This rare on-camera display of joy was the perfect accessory for her lovely lace and tweed ensemble from Jason Wu‘s Resort 2012 collection (lookbook photo below).
That little smile on Sieber’s face made the outfit – not the floppy hat, not even the gorgeous court shoes. A few posts ago, the styling tip of the day was that it’s all in the details. Today we learn that a smile can be the most important detail of all…as incredibly cheesy as that sounds. So turn those frowns upside-down, ladies and gents!**
** We now return to our regular levels of cheese.

Stylist and Chanel ambassador Caroline Sieber is featured in Vogue Paris‘ Une Fille, Un Style for July 2011. I can’t understand a word of the interview, but I find the photos most fascinating. I thought you might too.

Caroline Sieber‘s look at the Burberry Serpentine Summer Party this week takes my breath away. The stylist and Chanel ambassador donned the loveliest ruffled gown from Valentino‘s Spring 2011 haute couture collection, managing to blow the original runway styling completely out of the water with an unassuming ponytail and fabulous bag.
While the shoes may be an odd choice, no one’s noticing (other than me), since Sieber’s also toting around the Charlotte Olympia Pandora box clutch. Made of transparent plexiglass, the clutch leaves nothing to the imagination. It’s not a good storage spot for your gum wrappers, but definitely a chic conversation piece. The combination of the gorgeous gown, cheeky purse and simple hair and make-up made for one stunning Caroline Sieber.

Austrian-born, London-based stylist Caroline Sieber has one of the most covetable jobs in the industry – she’s a Chanel ambassador and therefore a fixture in the front row of their runway shows. Her appointment as ambassador is quite well-deserved given her impressive track record of styling for Vogue and clients like Emma Watson, as well as her own über-chic ensembles. I’ve yet to see Sieber make a misstep.
