Looking darkly glamorous in lots of black lace at the première of Black Swan
A certain raven-haired French beauty has been popping up at every event recently, and it’s about time we showed her some respect for her darkly glamorous and sexy approach to fashion. Yep, it’s It-girl Julia Restoin Roitfeld, poster girl for Tom Ford and daughter of the brilliant Carine. She’s been silently and mysteriously popping up in the front row for all the biggest fashion shows now, hanging out with the likes of Leigh Lezark and other fashion glitterati, but for some reason unknown we haven’t written a “Get the look” for her yet. So here you go, readers!
What we love about Julia, despite enviably good genes and very shiny hair, is her slightly shambolic approach to fashion. Swathes of black lace, trailing skirts, witch boots and slightly fetish-y leather are all key essentials to her look, no matter what the occasion. Reminiscent of the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen and Helena Bonham-Carter before her, Julia has the ability to look as if whatever she’s wearing has just been thrown on at the last minute. She may wear little to no colour, ever, but when the goth look is working so well for you why stop?
Luckily for any hopeful copycats, you don’t need to be the friend of a trillion designers like Julia to achieve this look – the gothic lace trend is still going strong on the high street at totally affordable prices, and little black dresses will never go out of fashion. If you want to give dressing like Julia a go, check out the gallery above for our favourite pieces. And when it comes to dressing head to toe in lace and sheer peekaboo fabrics, pile it on – when it comes to the Restoin Roitfeld school of fashion, more is more.
