It’s almost the end of the year, which means that, like everyone else, I’m starting to reflect back on 2012. This was the year of new favorites—from models to beauty products to designers, my “obsessions” have changed a lot over the past 12 months. With 3.1 Phillip Lim’s SS12 collection, I finally gave up and joined the throngs of Lim fans furiously flipping through his Barneys racks and hoarding pieces at his sample sales. I snatched up a ton of SS12 pieces during the summer and continue to drool over his new 2013 collections. 2012 also marked the start of my Givenchy shoe collection—from the “Biker” heel to the flat shark-tooth sandal (not to mention the wedge knee boots that I wish I could afford), I became an avid Givenchy shoe addict…and continue to love the Rottweiler shirts.
In terms of beauty, 2012 was all about the search for the perfect lash serum and perfume. I found both—Dior’s Diorshow Serum and Byredo’s “Gypsy Water.” I wear both every single day and will never look back. As Abbey Lee Kershaw faded into the background, I fell in love with Liu Wen and Cara Delevigne this year. Both are pretty much everywhere you look, from campaigns to editorials to the runway. Everyone claims Liu is the sweetest model out there, and I love that she’s found success as one of the few Asian models out there. And I love Cara’s sense of humor in front of the camera as well as her amazing eyebrows. 2012 was a great year for developing my tastes and building my wardrobe…can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!
