I was saddened to hear that the stylist, photographer and woman of great and independent style, Manuela Pavesi, died in Italy today. She was a collaborator and friend of Miuccia Prada and wore Prada brilliantly. She was a collector of fashion and antique jewels and she looked like no one else - a faint whisper of the past but thoroughly modern... there are far too few women with such an innate sense of style...
I love her romantic styling from the 1990s...

RIP Manuela Pavesi, as Katie Grand said, "Heaven will be a much more elegant place with you."
