Rose's Fashion Rules for Style-Savvy Gals
The ladies of JustFab are some of the most fierce and stylish out there, which is why Style was thrilled to chat them up about everything from the latest trends to their all-time fashion idols. Want to know more? Read on to see what Kimora: House of Fab star Rose Montoya is loving right now.
How would you describe your style?
In one word: Chic. I love feminine styles, but I think to add interest, you need to mix it up with at least one edgy piece. I usually do this through my accessories. I am also well-known by all for hating color. I think its attention seeking and a bit tacky, so I prefer to go with neutral colors like blush, beige, white and black. My ultimate goal with my style is to always look well put-together without looking like I am trying too hard.
What trends are you most looking forward to for 2013?
I am super excited about the pastel color palette that is trending for spring. I think mint and blush are such sweet colors, and I can definitely see myself incorporating them into my life. During the summer, I will be obsessed with the nautical trend, especially stripes! You can bet I will have stripes in my apparel, jewelry, shoes and bags!
Who is your fashion icon?
Victoria Beckham has been my style icon since 1997! I truly identified with her as a young girl, and as her style has evolved, I have moved along with her. I also think that she has been one of the only celebrities to start their own line and actually produce incredible work.
Who are your favorite fashion designers?
I've been a huge Diane Von Furstenberg fan ever since I can remember, and I am blown away with her collections every season. In my teens, I was able to pick a DVF dress for my birthday dinner every year, so she's definitely a very special designer to me. I also love what she stands for personally—empowering women, education and environmental protection.
Do you have a favorite accessory?
My Philip Stein watch was my college graduation gift. It has come in handy in life because it has two time zones. Since I travel for work, it has become my go-to accessory—functional and stylish!
What has been your most memorable splurge?
My favorite splurge has been my Chanel "Classic" bag. I absolutely love it and wear it all year long.
What is your best styling trick?
A true style-savvy gal can always mix and match her high and low fashion. If you can't walk into a Forever 21 or H&M and put together a fierce outfit, you're not a true fashionista.
