Right now, our number one style crush is Julia Sarr-Jamois. Over the last few seasons, snaps of her dressed in perfectly playful, yet effortlessly cool ensembles have cropped up on every style blog worth looking at, causing fashion-loving girls (including us) to declare her their newest style crush!
Now the Fashion Editor of Wonderland magazine, we remember meeting Julia a few years back when she was assisting Fran Burns on the Christopher Kane for Topshop shoot. We can even recall what she was wearing – a sporty grey tee with slouchy turned-up jeans and the most perfect silver Chanel peep-toe boots – which says something about how well this girl throws a look together!
As you’ll know if you love browsing fashion blogs, Julia has an almost cult-like Internet following. Wherever there’s a snap of her, there are tonnes of adoring comments from fashion-loving fans that just can’t get enough of her style. Her trademark afro and huge smile certainly may have something to do with her charm, but as you can see from taking a look at her takeover of Edited, she has a unique eye for styling up pieces together.
We are crazy in love with how Julia’s teamed our sequin denim shorts with two different sweaters to add just a touch of neon, layered a cutesy floral dress over a stripe shirt and mixed one stripey knit with another to update the ultimate wardrobe staple, skinny jeans.
It's no wonder Julia loves clothes! She grew up around all kinds of treasures as her mum had a vintage stall at Brixton market back in the 80s. While she was at college, Julia left to pursue an internship at I-D magazine and after doing a bit of modelling, decided that she wanted to do something more creative which led to her trying her hand at styling. All we can say is, we’re so pleased she did!
A lover of bright colours and off-the-wall prints, we knew that Julia would be the perfect person to take over our Edited space and inspire your wardrobe for SS12. If you live in London be sure to head down to our Oxford Circus flagship to take a look at Julia’s edit, and if you don’t, check out our interview with her, and shop her Edit on Topshop.com.
To stay in the loop with what Julia's up to, make sure you're following her on Twitter.
