Top model and musician Irina Lazareanu decrypts the essence of rock ’n’ roll chic, taking cues from her coterie of friends from the fashion and music worlds.
If you could saunter down the runway and slip backstage on the heels of Irina Lazareanu, who would you meet, what antics would ensue, and what on earth would you wear? Irina — Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, Kate Moss’s BFF, and Pete Dougherty’s former fiancée — introduces you to her inner circle — models, fashion designers, editors, Hollywood starlets, and rockers — to pilfer the secrets of their individually cool and universally coveted rock ‘n’ roll style.
She shares fashion tips from her fellow runway birds and offers insight from her work with designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, and Nicolas Ghesquière, as well as with fashion professionals like Edward Enninful and Inez & Vinoodh. Irina includes killer looks from friends such as Sean Lennon, Yoko Ono, Hedi Slimane, Lindsay Lohan, Mark Ronson, and the late Amy Winehouse.
She details a host of wardrobe tips and essentials, including dos and don’ts for creating your own folk, retro, punk, or glam rock look. In scrapbook collages and lively anecdotes from her life on the fashion and concert circuits, the captivating Romanian-Canadian top model and singer shares showstopping sartorial nuggets that will give your threads — and attitude — a rock ‘n’ roll edge.
“This book is a love letter to the magical people I’ve been blessed to meet throughout my twenty years in fashion, including Kate Moss, Karl Lagerfeld, Inez & Vinoodh, Edward Enninful, Carolyn Murphy, Hedi Slimane, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Yoko Ono and more. Some challenged me, some taught me how to dress, others taught me how to love. In this book I’ll share what I’ve learned from them about style and attitude. And while beauty may seduce you on the road to truth, getting through the voyage in style certainly never hurts.”
