Day 5: Vanessa Coyle

With fellow expat Yasmin Sewell, Chief Creative Consultant of Liberty London.

Melbourne expat is playing for the big leagues. After jumping the pond and freelancing in Europe for a couple of years, Vanessa Coyle snagged her current job as Senior Fashion Editor of UK Harper's Bazaar in 2007. Although her style is quite laidback, there's nothing boring about it. After looking at her thread over at The Fashion Spot, this girl gives meaning to the term "fashion forward." Double denim, aviator shearling jackets, classicly tailored blazers paired with graphic prints or tees... and all in 2008. Even though she has all the shoes she could possibly want at her disposal (and in keeping with the editor tradition) she favours her perfectly beatup suede YSL ankle booties, teaming them with... everything. With her penchant for menswear (read: buttoned-up shirts, tailored blazers, loose fitting pants), paired the right bag, shoe, or simply her attitude, she always carries it off. Love her edgy style.
