Fashion Inspiration: The Top 20 Fashion Moments of 2016, from Chanel in Cuba to Yeezy

Chanel Takes Cuba
Chanel set Havana’s Paseo del Prado as the picturesque backdrop and inspiration for the fashion house’s Cruise 2016/17 show, becoming the first luxury house to hold a fashion show in the country. 700 guests and 45 models were flown in for the weekend, and there were fedora hats, dresses printed with vintage cars, and tees reading ‘Viva Coco Libre!’. “This is all about my vision of Cuba,” Lagerfeld told The Cut. “But of course, what do I know about Cuba? It is very childish, my idea.”

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
