Whitney Port channels a boho floral chic look for the cover of Company Magazine’s September 2012 annual Ibiza issue. Inside she shares her awe of London Girls, where she gets her inspiration for her fashion collections and her favourite Spring/Summer 2012 trend and style icons!
British Style: “When I first came to London, I was in awe of the girls walking down the street. They looked like they had just stepped out of a fashion shoot, with such a cool mix of prints, colour and texture – especially in east London. When you’re from LA, it’s easy to get stuck in that jeans and t-shirt look, but being in the UK has encouraged me to take more risks. I’ve tried to be a little more street and edgier. I wear my Doc Martens and leather jackets more.”
Whitney Eve Inspiration: “I read A LOT of magazines. The ones outside of the states are usually the better ones, and because I’m constantly travelling, I pick up fashion magazines all over the world. I also go on Pinterest and type in keywords. Recently, I’ve been looking for hair and make-up inspiration. In terms of style, I search for interesting textures, print-on-print or summer fashion.”
Favourite Spring/Summer 2012 Trend: “I love, love, love floral prints. Any prints, in fact. I also like flats that have a menswear aesthetic to them, but can still be styled with a flirty, floral dress. I’m loving vintage jean jackets as an alternative to leather jackets for the summer too. I found a cool one in Topshop – it’s denim with light-blue leather sleeves. I love printed men’s work shirts too, like Equipment do, and you can find so many in vintage stores’ men’s sections.”
Favourite Style Icon: “I’ve always loved Princess Diana. I think she was chic, classic and willing to take risks considering the life she was living. I love Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung and Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley. Rihanna is hot too. Oh and Gwyneth Paltrow.”
