Lookbook.nu is a social network for fashion-lovers, giving them an opportunity to show off their outfits and express their style.
Anyone can express themselves on Lookbook now matter how different your ideas or your culture may be. To me, being unique is very important and we don’t always see that reflected in stores, on TV or even on blogs.
Lookbook bypasses conventionality and allows each user to show their own identity through clothing. I’ve seen so many amazing pictures from head-to-toe designer, alternative, cosplay outfits, drag queens and people wearing masks and veils.
Now for a round the world fashion trip without leaving your sofa: I present a few of my favourite lookbookers!
Barbie King is a 22 year old student from China. Barbie’s style is wild, sexy and fun. Lots of suspenders with denim shorts, wild hair colours and huge creepers. She seems to transform herself easily, almost a different persona in each photo.
She choose items that suit her petite proportions and even photoshops in wild backgrounds which is allowed on the site but not many Lookbook users utilise this.
I’ve hyped almost all of her looks because they are so eye-catching and original. Check out her style below.
Jessica Tuong, a “law student and shopaholic” from Sydney has amazing photos. Her style is polished and glamorous, beautiful hair and makeup and structured dresses. Now this is what you call a photo!
I love the tights, boots and dress.
Jessica seems to love bright colours which look great on her but I love this black, white and grey ensemble. Plus the photography is breathtaking.
This is not really my style yet how Jessica wears it makes me fall in love with it! I especially like the makeup and accessories. Check out her blog here.
Another very different lady is the gorgeous Vita K from St. Petersburg. She favours a retro glamour look and her photos are amazing.
The tiny touches in this photo, perfectly coiffed hair, vintage style gloves, down to the the bows on the shoes really make this outfit.
It looks like a wedding outfit, so feminine and dainty.
A gorgeous winter outfit, it’s tempting to forgo stylish outfits when it’s cold outside but this girl is rocking a feather skirt and lace sleeves in Russia…it can’t be warm….respect!
Also knee high boots are really hard to wear without looking overly sexy but she can pull off this look so easily.
Another winter outfit, looks both cosy and stylish, covering all weather eventualities with boots and jewelled gloves. And I need that bag in my life!
While winter seems to kill style stone dead in many countries ( puffy jackets with furry hoods/generic khaki jacket wearers I’m talking to you) Vita somehow oozes opulence in winter clothing. Perhaps it’s a Russian thing.
This is her blogand there’s a feature to translate to English.
Oh hang on there’s the bag again. It looks designer but is actually from H & M. This colour combination shouldn’t work but it does. Her figure looks amazing and I love the clash of the turquoise shoes and earrings. If you looked up “bombshell” in the dictionary, this is what you’d see.
Salivating over the details!
A modern take on Jackie O, updated with pastel colour clash and perspex necklace. Lana del Rey eat your heart out.
This girl was made to wear beautiful dresses and skirts, I doubt she owns a pair of jeans. She reminds me of Paloma Faith.
But she’s not too serious as this photo shows! The bag is from Asos and most of her clothing is from Zara, H&M etc. so although she makes it look high-end, it’s actually affordable. I love black and white and brocade so it’s just perfect. More feminine glamour here.
And now for a girl who has fun! I love glamorous fashion but I also think it’s great to have fun while making a fashion statement. Stephiee N, a creative director of JapanLA clothing from Los Angeles certainly knows how to do this.
Colourful, crazy and cool! I love anything with galaxy prints.
About as much black as you’ll find in her outfits!
Not strictly “a look” but how can you not love someone who photoshops themselves into Toy Story?! Perfect antidote to all the serious posed selfies! 😛
Bernadette F is a sassy lady who lets the clothing do the talking.
I wish I looked this cool !
Cool as fuck
She is lucky enough that she can wear pretty much anything. 35k fans on Lookbook doesn’t lie, she has style in SPADES!
Now to Brazil and the fabulous Vanessa Vasconcellos.
This girl has the body to pull off anything and in accordance with Brazilian temperatures wears shorts and mini-skirts with aplomb.
Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for your support! 🙂 My next project is helping my friend Dani make her wedding dress, I’ll post about this soon. Thanks as always for reading my blog and don’t forget to check out my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page here.
