HAUTE MUSE: CHRISTINE CENTENERA

April 11, 2015

In the last few years, Kim Kardashian has been able to transform her style to a more minimalist look. She dresses in more neutral color schemes and pairs unusual, exotic accessories with her sculpted looks, creating a high-fashion sophistication. Highly tailored, structured pieces are complimented with lace-up heels and neck chokers. Her new go-to designers: Balmain and Celine. It is only recently that the media found out who the genius was that recreated an otherwise mediocre fashion wardrobe. Christine Centenera, our Haute Muse, was just credited by Mrs. West as her style icon and, in our opinion, the woman who completely changed her status in the fashion world.

Centenera is most commonly known for her work as the current fashion director of Vogue Australia. Also on her resume is her work with Kanye West on his first fashion line in 2011. Soon thereafter, she began styling for Kim Kardashian, most recently for Kim’s appearance on the Vogue Australia cover.

Centenera’s street style features uniquely structured and proportioned layered looks and her signature Celine sunglasses. She has taught us all the importance of the tuxedo dress and its place as a necessity in every woman’s closet. Her low-key, under the radar presence in fashion only creates a greater buzz when she makes appearances during fashion month. Not only was she rocking the faux bob before mane addicts, but she also changed the tides of fashion by styling one of the media’s most photographed personalities. Centenera further represents the power of the stylist and how they transition pieces from designers into complete, wearable looks. For us, stylists like Centenera are the most underappreciated talents of the fashion industry.
