Admit it or not, most of us do find ourselves wondering about things models eat, exercises they use to stay in shape, beauty product that keep their skin glowing and flawless and, of course, clothes and accessories models wear to look effortlessly chic – after all, the girls have a wonderful opportunity to try most wonderful pieces months before they become available in shops and be dresses by the best fashion designers and stylists in the industry.

Since I am a kind of person that would rather try to find an answer than die of curiosity, I asked Natalie Hand, the gorgeous director of Viva London and four beautiful fashion models to pick their Autumn 2013 wardrobe must-haves.

On her wish list: I have already for many years tried to find nice, pretty classic and beautiful (with a bit of edge though)  fall/winter boots that look good but are also fine in the "not so nice" weather meaning slush and rain. Seems to be a mission impossible.

Also on my mind for this fall are Alexander Wang top and Stella McCartney clutch.

Stella-McCartney-FALABELLA-SHAGGY-DEER-FOLD-OVER-CLUTCH-STANDARD

And perfect jeans (a bit of boyfriend kind of jeans) that I get to design and are made-to-measure by a Finnish brand called Nomo Jeans.

Where to buy: www.nomojeans.com, the top is available at NAP, the clutch is available at NAP, Barneys NY, MyTheresa and Bergdorf Goodman

Personally, I would love pretty much everything here. What about you?

  10. I must admit as far as fashionistas go, my interest in models and their habits is on the low end of the spectrum... as a petite I find it difficult to relate to their style because it is so far from what would suit my frame. With that said, I am always fascinated by what pieces other women are covetting in a particular season. And I do love that Isabel Marant coat!
