Marie Louise De Monterey (MLM for short) is the naughty but nice, hot new collaboration between designers Claire Dickson-Smith (former designer founder of Third Millennium, my fav label of the 2000’s) and Maria Dyoniziak (owner of Paris store Marie Louise De Monterey). These dear friends, have created a collection that reflects their shared love of feminine, romantic clothing and all things Parisienne. Vintage inspired with soft hand feel fabrics, the garments are embroidered and printed with tiny floral details. This girl goes from bed to lunch to dinner, in the same state of disheveled elegance!

Double Trouble

Stylish sisters and actors, Anna & Elsa Cocquerel are not only beautiful, but focused on their up and coming careers & god damn witty. With a French father & Australian mother these two Sydneysider’s, I predict will be future super stars! Anna is currently concentrating on her final year of high school but will be returning next year to her role as Coco Astoni, on Home and Away. Elsa who studied fashion design at UTS & modelled in LA has since been based between both Sydney and LA, pursuing her acting career while completing a Bachelor of Business online. Her credits include starring alongside Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa in Drake Doremus’ indie romance ‘Newness’, the mini series ‘Wolf Creek’ which earned her a Logie Nomination for Most Outstanding Supporting Actress. And wait there’s more (literally) siblings Emilie and Thomas Cocquerel are actors too. It’s definitely a dramatic crew and these sisters are so in tune with each other that we asked them separately questions about one another to see how well they actually know each other and they did exceptionally well….
