PARIS - A few weeks ago, a New York Times article caught my eye about talented female street style photographers who are "effortlessly working both sides of the camera." At the Cacharel A/W 2012 show at Paris Fashion Week, I met statuesque model-turned-photographer, Candice Lake, camera in hand, shooting for British Vogue. It wasn't until I went home and did my requisite google search on my street style subjects that I put two-and-two together: Candice was one of the "impeccably dresse[d]" photographers featured in that article!
Have a look at her work on her website; her captures are refreshingly luminous and joyful, much like Candice herself, who graciously asked me whether I had "gotten my shot."
Her fur coat is from Rue Du Mail and her top and skirt are from Topshop. I love how the different shades of blue play off one another and the different textures of each piece add another layer of interest to the ensemble. Gorgeous!
