Look of the Month

Martha Violante

THE LOOK
: "I was inspired by the mixed proportions on the Spring/Summer '12 runways, and turned to '90s-era hip-hop to interpret the trend pairing voluminous pants with a tight sports bra. I also wanted to reference that era's obsession with sportswear, jewel tones and bold logos, but simultaneously keep it contemporary with the metallic handbag and these amazing rope-like accessories (which bring a nice athleticism to jewelry)." 

THE GIRL: Discovered after a photographer friend submitted her pictures to an agency, 21-year old Alexandra Katharine Silva has been modeling for two years now and insists she loves all the travel her job requires. "Call me crazy, but I love flying in planes and visiting random airports," she says.
