MARINA RUST CONTINUED

i’m so thrilled to bring you part 2 of my “MDS Interviews” with marina rust connor- we get to find out about all her favorite things.

before we get to that i want to talk about one of my favorite things- marina’s style. marina is always on every best dressed list, she’s always on mine and she was inducted into the vanity fair international best dressed list hall of fame in 2007.

she always looks classic, elegant and timeless. full skirts, lady-like coats, trousers, ball skirts, blouses… along with white, black and grey are her go tos. i love that when you see a picture of marina you don’t know if it is from today or ten years ago, and most certainly every outfit will look perfect ten years from now. she knows who she is and knows what works on her and it most certainly works for me.

what really sets marina apart is she always looks pretty, alway like a lady…that’s truly why she’s one of my favorites. she gives us all hope….style, elegance, restraint and true beauty isn’t something of the past, it’s alive and well with marina rust- the interview continues. enjoy!
