Musette's Global Style File, 2nd Edition

Musette takes you around the world, spotlighting the countries that have style down pat. Native or not, never be afraid to show a little national pride for your favorite fashion destination.

"Fox From France"
Journey to Paris by way of your wardrobe, honouring everything you love about this fine fashion capital. By favouring all things striped, chic, and Chanel you will be one step closer to walking the boulevard St. Germain, pain au chocolat in hand. Seek guidance from both Birkin girls, Charlotte & Lou, and you will be mistaken for French in no time flat.

Winning Example : Lou Doillon

"What A (Russian) Doll!"
Fur is not to be feared, and luxury never denied when transforming into a true Russian Tsarina. Take a cue from the First Lady of Fashion, Natalia Vodianova, by choosing statement-making items that are sure to get you noticed. Grab a shot of vodka and a lavish stole to fully embrace this very lovely look.
