She swears by Diet Coke rather than Starbucks, road trip in sunny California instead of spa in Aspen, and dance to rock n' roll rather than downward dogging. Alt maintains her undisturbed, pared-back style. From Céline architectural mules to Gucci charming dresses to Vetements daring sweats, she conquers them all.

As for her style, Lulu isn’t about the office wear, as she has never worked in the corporate world. Aside from a well-cut coat, perhaps her upbringing has formed more of her preferred style as more bohemian and laid-back; something one can frolic in whether it is the countryside or the beach… Inspired by Neneh Cherry in the earlier days, people can see how much it has influenced much of Lulu’s outfits, which can be seen by Lulu’s choice of mini dresses under her bomber jacket.
Having grown up through Ibiza, Devon, Sicily and working on raves in Naples, she first found herself drawn into fashion after she got a job at a vintage shop in the UK in 1995. Now, she is the Founder and Director of Fashion East & MAN, Lulu & Co clothing line and Editor-at-large of Conde Nast’s biannual Love magazine, consulting from brands on the side! #WomenKrushWednesdays
“If you start with a very classic approach to your clothes, you can add anything flamboyant to that. If you start the other way ‘round, it’s much harder to tone it down afterwards.” Phelan believes that fashion is always about those little things that you discover. Like when she tried Margaret Howell’s spectacular job of the blue scarf for the Barbara Hepworth exhibition. As she tried it on she thought “Oh, it feels really different, really grown up, to put a scarf on.”
“What’s it like to be outside of Vogue? Would I be able to survive? Could I stand on my own two feet?” And in that way, Phelan felt like she needed to challenge herself – and put herself out of the world of Vogue. Ever since she was a child, Phelan was captivated by British Vogue and moved to London in 1984 to study fashion communications at the prestigious school of Central St Martins. In her third year, Phelan managed to snag an internship at Vogue
Perhaps one of the most sought after stylist of all time, Kate Phelan, rocked the fashion world when she was successfully lured by Topshop away from her 20-year career as British Vogue Fashion Director in 2003. Kate Phelan is currently the creative director of Topshop and Contributing Fashion Editor at British Vogue, and we’re sure you’ve seen her fabulous styling glazing the covers of plenty of magazines and campaigns around the world. #WomenKrushWednesdays
“If it weren’t for the way I dress, no one would notice me,” she told a reporter in1968. Hardly likely, given her cheekbones and doe eyes. She epitomized sixties fashion with one look: a zippy A-line skirt, white turtleneck, belted coat, and her iconic white boots. She’s taken up by fashion houses Yves St Laurent and Paco Rabanne (remember the dress made of glittering gold tiles?), gracing covers of magazines like Elle and Paris Match.
