Jane Keltner de Valle

Absolutely phenomenal! This is such a simple and easy way to display shoes! A shoe wall is awesome, but this shoe cubby wall emphasizes each pair of shoes. I would love to do this with handbags.

Person of Interest: Jane Keltner de Valle

This week’s Person of Interest is Jane Keltner de Valle. As a fashion news director for TeenVogue, she has said that since working there, she has added much more color, print, and combinations of high and lo pieces to her wardrobe. I like to think that Jane and I are similar in a way. She dislikes wearing pants and so do I, and it seems that her signature are fit-and-flare skirts with tucked in blouses and button-downs. Mrs. Keltner de Valle always appears extremely put together and complete. She has a dream wardrobe for a job in fashion that is all it should be–stylish, thoughtful, and professional, while still clearly showing her personality and own sense of style. Is anyone else in love with that cobalt blue skirt on the far right above? Me too.

What do you think of Jane’s style?

Paris Fashion Week SS 2013….Jane

Teen Vogue’s Senior Fashion News Director Jane Keltner de Valle, before Chanel, Paris, October 2012.
I love this elegant look on Jane – so beautiful. Often when I photograph people I am thinking to myself “Okay, how would this work in ‘real life’/where could you wear this look” (and in the case of Anna Dello Russo I am thinking “Damn Skippy. ONLY Anna can pull this off!”). Coming up to party season (and winter weddings), I thought Jane’s look would be inspiration for when you need a “party” outfit but want something you can wear again (even to work). A full black skirt + lace trimmed top  are both pieces you could wear separately during the day, depending on what you pair them with. I think a party dress is a lot trickier to make wearable during the day (unless you are Anna of course!).
