Street Style: Anjelica at Dries Van Noten

Anjelica is back and looking as adorable as ever. She’s really committed to the Seventies revival trend and it works well on her.  The fur coat, patterned blouse and Breton cap are all trendy, retro-inspired pieces. Thigh-high boots can look either modern, vintage or, in Anjelica’s case, both!

Street Style: Helena at Dolce&Gabbana

Helena Bordon is a regular feature here on The Thread, thanks to her fun, trendy style. White shirting is having a huge moment, which I fully support. This sleek, striped maxi skirt works well with a menswear shirt. Bright heels and coordinating double bags complete this contrasting look.

Street Style: Ece at Marni

Ece Sukan does it again! I think I’m getting a little obsessed with Ece and her amazing style. She always looks flawless and is insanely good at blending genres. I’ve been enjoying experimenting with the season’s military themes, and Ece’s maxi coat is covetable. Layering the utilitarian coat with a sleek moto and sexy thigh-high boots adds a whole ’nother dimension to the look. Can’t wait to see what Ece has in store for us in Paris!

Street Style: Annie at Rebecca Minkoff

Annie Georgia Greenberg is yet another one of my favorite style stars. As the NYC editor of Refinery29.com, Annie’s personal style is always on point. I think my favorite thing about Annie, however, is her attitude. She has so much fun with fashion and isn’t afraid to get creative. She is a master at mixing modern and vintage, high and low. Today’s belted look is daring, cool, and perfectly seasonal. Her signature red lip and cascading waves are the cherry on top.

Street Style: Samantha at Zimmermann

This New York-based blogger braved the subfreezing temps in her pale neutrals. This look is perfectly modern-minimalist with an eye towards spring. Samantha’s palette is simple and chic, but I love how she’s added a bit of unexpected color into her hair. Fun fact about Samantha: she is an accomplished classical musician as well as a style star!

Flashback Friday: Jennifer Lopez in Stuart Weitzman

Remember that one awards show last weekend? Us too. One red carpet image was burned into our brains: Jennifer Lopez–the forever-awesome J. Lo–in our Stuart Weitzman NUDIST sandal. Have you seen a sexier instep?

The shoe is killer, for sure, but it’s also all about J.Lo’s mad skills in putting it out there. To wrap our heads around this red carpet move, we talked to a pack of Nordstrom experts—Art Director Brett Wiseman, Photographer Barb Penoyar, Stylist Ricardo Martines and Model Andrew Shaw—about posing, and specifically, posing tips that we can use IRL, too.

Here’s how you can bend it like this babe:  

-Angles are your friend. Turn your body just a bit to the side to appear trimmer.

-Always have a thought in your head, connect with the camera, smile with your eyes.

-Stand up straight, no slouching!

-In a group be sure you can see the camera. If you can’t see the camera the camera can’t see you.

-Push your chin just slightly towards the camera to create a clean jaw line.

-Practice! A couple of minutes in the mirror can teach you your best angles!

Alexandra Spencer of 4th and Bleeker Talks Vogue Australia, David Lynch and Thigh Highs

A blogger is a blogger is a blogger, right? Well, no. Not when the blogger is 4th and Bleeker’s Alexandra Spencer. We chatted with the model, stylist, artist, photographer and yes, blogger, during our recent Stuart Weitzman campaign shoot and got a window into her gorgeous world of creative cross-pollination. But it wasn’t all business. We talked boots, sandals, inspiration and outfits too.

The Thread: Tell us about 4th and Bleeker.
Alexandra Spencer: It’s where I share all of the different projects that I work on. It’s a place for all of my collaborations in whatever form they’ve come—whether it’s photography or modeling or art direction or styling or painting, it’s a home for all of that.

Street Report: Elaine Outside Chloé

I’m a sucker for a great smile and Elaine Welteroth has one of the best in the biz. This Teen Vogue beauty editor is obviously in the know about all the best beauty trends, including the bold wine-colored lip.

Her outfit today is moto inspo, all the way! Love the zipper details, the chain-strap Chanel, and the classic draped biker jacket. Her flared mini and peep-toe booties add some hip allure to this biker babe ensemble. Tough-girl chic!
