Marianne was fiercely independent and never apologized for her behavior - she followed her heart no matter what. Whether that meant leaving John Dunbar for Mick, or doing some pretty drastic things to shake off her convent girl persona, Marianne was never satisfied following convention.

I think that there is a striking similarity features-wise between cinema queen Romy Schneider and Mad Men starlet Elisabeth Moss - both have beautiful, slightly cherubic faces that light up the screen. Last year, Elisabeth even lightened her signature brunette locks to a warm honey shade similar to the color that Romy often sported. The only thing missing is for Miss Moss to find an Alain Delon all her own!

Next was a discussion on "Building a Business," which included Lisa Gavales, the CMO of Express, the founders of The Coveteur (Erin Kleinberg and Stephanie Mark) and Thrillist (Adam Rich), as well as Rachel Zoe's other half Rodger Berman. To hear how people built their websites into lifestyle brands was fascinating, as was hearing how Rachel and Rodger started out.
The final panel explored "What Platforms Are Right For You?" and included the cofounder of Birchbox, the marketing manager of Klout, and two of my favorite speakers - John Jannuzzi (editor of Lucky's Style Collective) and Ben Silbermann (cofounder of Pinterest), both of whom were really funny.

I want to thank Lucky Magazine for such an amazing time, as well as awarding Dolly Rocker Girl the 'Best Voice - Fashion' title. I am still floating on air!

I love photos of the ever-so-stunning and talented Grace Coddington. Known as the Creative Director of Vogue, as well as Anna Wintour's right-hand flame-haired woman, many of us didn't know that Grace was a highly successful model during the sixties. I was struck by her beauty when she shared photos of her modeling days with the documentary The September Issue, which I saw a few months back and have continued to watch and re-watch. She had an angular yet petite face that could off anything - from a mid sixties pixie cut to those Biba-inspired finger waves. And those signature fiery locks! Oh, how I love her hair - it's so beautiful and it's so distinctly Grace.
