Stella Tennant for Zara Fall 2011

11/08/2011 § 4 Comments

I am reasonably sure that Zara has figured out the surefire way to get my attention is to use Stella Tennant, who I honestly adore with a ferocity that might alarm some.  But really, think about it…

  1. She’s forty.  FORTY!
  2. She comes in just under six feet tall
  3. That body has given birth to four – count them, FOUR! – children
  4. Her ancestors are titled Scottish gentry

Add all that to her signature, androgynous look, and I’m nursing a serious girlcrush.  She also kind of makes me want to chop all my hair off.

But only for a second.

Zara is all Katharine Hepburn-y turtlenecks and smart suiting/blazers for fall, and I couldn’t be more pleased.  While there is a preponderance of black and grey, I like how they’ve also retained some of their fun use of colors from S/S.  I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Zara for years, and it’s great to be a fan of theirs for two seasons in a row.  Now, when sister brand Massimo Dutti finally opens up shop on Fifth Avenue, Zara might get a run for my money, but if they keep this narrative going, I see no reason why there isn’t enough of me to go around.  My Amex may disagree, on the other hand…

Naaaaaavy.  And lapels to die for.

Turtleneck is perfection.

Love this neckline.

Loving everything about this.

    It’s truly unbelievable that she is 40. She looks ah-maaaz-ing! And I totally agree with you, I’m loving the Zara fall line. Despite the fact that it’s still 80 degrees out, I’m longing for structured blazers, soft sweaters and the like. Remind me that I said that when I’m cursing the winter weather!

      She’s pretty much superhuman. I’d say we could learn from her, but I think it’s purely genetics… (Totally agree with you about about shopping for next season — even though I definitely don’t envy your weather up in Boston, my dear…)

  • I think Stella Tennant is a fabulous super model. I think Stella McCartney also used her for previous campaigns?

    I also adore Stella Tennant
