Ever want to know what women, some at the top of their fashion game, think about personal style and uniform dressing? This article in W Magazine is a fun peek into the thoughts behind what makes women such as Vogue’s Tonne Goodman (she was also the fashion director at Bazaar when I was there), Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele (who was at Vogue when I was starting out in fashion–you could hear her coming down the hallway, her jewelry clanking around), writer Fran Lebowitz and men such as artist Rashid Johnson chose what they wear. I love that Carlyne, pictured above, still wears men’s coats, track suits and pearls, that Tonne Goodman is almost religious about her white jeans, and that Jane Wenner exclusively wears striped mariniere shirts. I’m not sure whom I relate to most. Perhaps Fran, because sure, she’s in jeans and a button-down and blazer, but each piece is custom by Savile Row tailors. She gets the idea of fewer better things.
