I wanna be… Carolina Herrera

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty typical to get girl crushes from time to time. Whether it’s a new friend you meet or someone famous you admire, but will never meet there are days that you daydream with thoughts about, “What if I was her”. Hence my new series ( I don’t think it will be weekly, but perhaps monthly) called I wanna be…

Today’s first featured lady is Carolina Herrera and here are my top 5 reasons for wanting to be her!

1. Her mother is fashion designer Carolina Herrera so you know she must have an amazing closet and has impeccable taste and style.

{My all time favorite Carolina Herrera dresshas to be the dress she designed for Renee Zellweger in 2004 for the Oscars. Ah I always dreamed of having a wedding dress just like it.}

2. Her home was featured in our beloved Domino magazine.

{ I remember being in a awe of her massive bathroom that is decorated like anything but a bathroom. The cow hide rug! The striped chaise! All of the bathroom fixtures seem to disappear it just looks like a cool sitting room.}

3. She lives in Madrid. Now I have yet to make it to Madrid, but I just know that Spain and I would just get along famously.

4. She actually told Elle Decor magazine during an interview that she had just grabbed 14 chairs out of a garbage pile, because they were perfectly good old chairs. Ah totally a girl after my own heart.

5. She is daring with design and has not 1, but 2 rooms in her home upholstered with fabric and trimmed out with jute and nail heads.

    The white gown you love is currently on display in the CFDA Impact: 50 Years of Fashion exhibit down in Boca. I was there a few weeks ago. =)

  2. I’m such a huge fan of CH, and I’m in LOVE with Carolina Jr.’s home, absolutely stunning!

  3. I love her too. I remember the first time I saw her pink hall with the nailhead trim – I’ve been in love ever since! :)

    I couldn’t agree more! I had the good fortune to sit next to her at a dinner party for her mother’s store opening in LA a few years back, and I can tell you she is completely crush-worthy! She told me all about her farm (!!!) and what being a mother was like (this was before my daughter was born)–a total sweetheart!

    Camilla,

    You are way prettier and your style is just as great. You also have a very cute baby boy. I rather sit next to you at a dinner party than Carolina. I ‘m sure you are more fun!
