Загородный дом от Ralph Lauren Home
Глядя на интерьер загородного дома Баффи Бирриттеллы, сразу понимаешь, что она — правая рука Ральфа Лорена
Когда на протяжении 40 лет работаешь бок о бок с человеком, чье имя стало символом определенного образа жизни, поневоле начинаешь жить в этом стиле сам. И Баффи Бирриттеллу, исполнительного вице-президента по рекламе и маркетингу женской линии одежды модного Дома Ralph Lauren, это вполне устраивает.
Она открыла для себя Лорена в 1970-х, будучи модным обозревателем одного из американских журналов. В те годы дизайнер только начинал свою карьеру. Баффи позвонила и уговорила Лорена взять ее на работу. Она стала одним из первых десяти сотрудников модного Дома и остается им по сей день.
Ее первым заданием в 1974 году было подобрать гардероб Роберту Рэдфорду в роли Джея Гетсби для экранизации знаменитого романа Фрэнсиса Скотта Фицджеральда. «Роберт пригласил меня в Санденс и поселил в одном из своих гостевых коттеджей, — вспоминает Баффи. — О, это было прекрасно! Дни напролет я каталась на горных лыжах, совершала конные и пешие прогулки и ездила на рыбалку.
Однажды, спускаясь на лыжном подъемнике и глядя на пейзажи, раскинувшиеся перед глазами, я поняла, что хочу здесь остаться. И осталась. До 1998 года». Баффи выкупила у Рэдфорда гостевой коттедж и обосновалась в нем. «Ну, первые десять лет все было хорошо, — вспоминает она. — А потом я просто перестала помещаться в доме».
Речь, конечно, идет не о самой миниатюрной и хрупкой Баффи, а о ее огромных коллекциях плетеных корзин, фарфора, ковров и пледов с аутентичными индейскими орнаментами. Она начала собирать их в 1980-х, когда Лорен, вдохновленный Санта-Фе и эстетикой индейских племен навахо, выпустил одну из своих первых коллекций мебели и предметов декора.
«Я садилась в свой маленький Porsche и 12 часов ехала из Юты в Нью-Мексико на местные рынки за новыми сокровищами», — рассказывает Баффи. Вскоре ее дом напоминал нечто среднее между краеведческим музеем и галереей народных промыслов. Шесть лет назад Бирриттелла решила подыскать для себя новое жилье и перебралась на Западное побережье в Ист-Хэмптон.
Интерьер ее нового дома — полная противоположность предыдущему. Бело-голубая палитра, льняные чехлы на стульях и плетеная мебель — именно таким представляется дом на берегу моря. «Я называю его домом моих фантазий, — признается Баффи, — и он, конечно же, абсолютно в духе Ralph Lauren». Каждый предмет здесь неслучаен и подбирался Баффи со свойственной ей скрупулезностью.
Чтобы понять, как далеко она может зайти в поисках необходимой ей вещи, стоит обратить внимание на обеденный стол. Основанием для него служит окаменевший ствол дерева. «Эту корягу вынесло на пляж после урагана «Сэнди», — замечает хозяйка. — Я уговорила друга пригнать грузовик и оттащить ствол в гараж, где в течение нескольких лет просушивала его и обрабатывала специальным раствором».
Так же упорно она красила слой за слоем каминный портал, пока он не приобрел естественный обшарпанный вид. Теперь кажется, что он простоял в этом доме десятки лет. Когда работа над оформлением интерьера была закончена, Бирриттелла устроила вечеринку, созвав на новоселье всех друзей. «Несмотря на то что этот дом — для меня, очень важно, чтобы моим друзьям он тоже нравился и чтобы они чувствовали себя тут уютно», — говорит Баффи.
Стоит ли упоминать, что среди приглашенных числился и сам Ральф Лорен. «О, это был очень волнующий момент, — вспоминает Бирриттелла. — Я чувствовала себя ученицей художественной школы, которая показывает свою работу учителю».

After reading through the reviews, I decided I needed to get a fair review out there.

(the answer is no, you would not) Then why would After reading through the reviews, I decided I needed to get a fair review out there. Would you go to a hair salon that specifically caters to women who have curly hair when you have stick straight hair that doesn’t hold curl? (the answer is no, you would not) Then why would you pick up this book, with a girl who is famous for being famous and knows exactly how to dress to her tastes and style? While I believe that it would be cool for a Style book to come out where it crosses race, body types and so on, it’s impossible. You would have to take into consideration not only specific races (not to mention us girls who are mixed), but you’d also have to include ALL body types (and not just the «normal» ones of hourglass, triangle and stick but ALL the combinations too) along with specific styles (jeans and a tee? Elegant? Heels all day, everyday? Tomboy? Boho? Alternative?) AND where you live. That’s impossible. If you don’t like Lauren Conrad and how she dresses, leave this book to those of us who do.
STYLE could be considered «common sense» but ladies. Look at pictures of you from when you were in 8th grade. TELL ME you had impeccable style. This, is the intended audience. Young Adults. I learned a lot from this book. Conrad includes the staples of what SHOULD be in every woman’s closet (everything from a LBD to a well fitted heavy coat) and how to accessorize them to make them look like different outfits! She keeps everything to basics EVEN THOUGH the pictures show various things. Unfortunately, most people have the in ability to look at a picture of something (a dress, for example) and see what they like or do not like about it. No, you don’t need a bright teal maxi dress with a flower print like Conrad wears on page 15 but you can see what kind of maxi dresses YOU like and look good in. The woman cannot buy and put together outfits for you. She is simply giving your mind the tools it needs to be able to put together a good, beautiful outfit that makes you feel good about yourself. Conrad also includes the best outfit to wear while on a plane (no, sweats are not the staple), different ways to wear your LBD, simple ways to style your hair and makeup and how to dress for your job interviews.
If you like the California style and want to learn the basics AND YOU HAVE AN IMAGINATION, you will like this book. You don’t need to buy $700 dresses in order to be able to «get» this book, trust me. So the «spoiled rich girl» comments can take a hike. . more

Okay, if you want to read a book about Lauren Conrad (I’m still not entirely sure what she is famous for, but I know she did a reality TV show and I THINK designs clothing for Kohl’s) I’m sure you could enjoy this book, at least a little. But problematically, it’s marketed Okay, if you want to read a book about Lauren Conrad (I’m still not entirely sure what she is famous for, but I know she did a reality TV show and I THINK designs clothing for Kohl’s) I’m sure you could enjoy this book, at least a little. But problematically, it’s marketed as style/fashion advice for everyone, and it is amazingly NOT for everyone. It’s like she wrote a book of fashion advice for herself. She only recommends things that she looks good in and likes, such as skinny jeans and super high heels. She dresses for the red carpet and paparazzi, not trips to the supermarket or visiting the library. She proudly offers that in five years of her reality TV show, she never once repeated an outfit. She talks about shopping trips that last for days, and going to the store two hours before flying to Vegas for her birthday celebration and buying a ridiculously overpriced dress that she’d only wear once, but that made her feel fabulous that night and was thus worth the splurge. She makes practical suggestions, like purchasing a $70 leather jacket to give it a trial run before investing in an expensive one to see if you’ll really like it and wear it (because she’s so frugal). Unfortunately, 90% of her readers are going to consider the $70 jacket plenty expensive on it’s own. And we do not spend 40 hours per week shopping and planning our wardrobe and hair. We also do not have multiple stylists employed to help us. Really, this book is pretty much worthless for advice for anyone other than celebrities (who have their own personal shoppers and stylists anyway), but mildly entertaining and made me feel better about myself, like I have balance in my life. I love clothes and shopping and like to dress well, but it takes an appropriate backseat to other things in my life, such as being a mother and reading stuff.
Have you ever found a dress that you liked, so you took it to the tailor and paid to have him painstakingly recreate the pattern and sew you another one in a different pattern and fabric so that you could wear it again another time, but not have to look like you were wearing the same thing you wore three months prior? If yes, then this book if you for you. If you’ve ever worn the same pair of shoes or jeans twice within a 7 day period, then this book is NOT for you.
There. I just saved you a bunch of time and money. . more

I love Lauren Conrad’s style (and I thought that she had studied fashion. ), so I was excited to read this book. Although there was some interesting and useful information, I was generally disappointed.
Although Conrad tries to hide the fact that she is a spoiled rich girl, I love Lauren Conrad’s style (and I thought that she had studied fashion. ), so I was excited to read this book. Although there was some interesting and useful information, I was generally disappointed.
Although Conrad tries to hide the fact that she is a spoiled rich girl, it is very apparent anyway. I guess I was more annoyed by her attempts to appear normal (she claims to be so embarrassed about how much she spent on a dress, that she will not disclose how much it cost) than if she had just been up front about her fortunate background and expensive lifestyle. She also admitted that she had a team of people helping her clean out her closet including (if I remember correctly) FOUR stylists. If I am supposed to be listening to her advice on style, why does she need to hire FOUR stylists to help her with her clothes? They should be the ones writing a book!
The other thing that bothered me was that the advice in Conrad’s book is suited to herself. For example, she says that she considers «kitten heels» to be the «mullet» of shoes and goes on (and on) about her love of super-high stilettos. Well, Conrad is relatively short, so I can understand her preference for high heels. However, kitten heels can be much more flattering than, say, a flip-flop and may be very well suited for someone who is tall and wants to wear a heel without towering over everyone. The hairstyles she suggests are all those worn by herself—her signature loose waves and her «goddess braid.» Her styling tips, again, are suited to people with hair like hers. For example, she advises girls to towel dry vigorously. If curly-haired girls did that, they would end up with a frizzy mess! She also very strongly advocates for skinny jeans, which are really only flattering for certain body types, especially worn without boots. I could go on and on!
Like I said, there was some interesting information in the book. I like knowing that the most important lengths for necklaces are 12″, 14″ and 18″. However, I had a hard time getting past the feeling that Conrad is spoiled, untutored in style (relying on her stylists), insincere, and stuck on herself. . more

First off, I must admit that I have no clue who Lauren Conrad is. A brief glance at her Wikipedia page gives the impression she’s used her famous-for-what? reality star status to amass a miniature empire of fashion lines and book deals. So what am I doing reading a book with First off, I must admit that I have no clue who Lauren Conrad is. A brief glance at her Wikipedia page gives the impression she’s used her famous-for-what? reality star status to amass a miniature empire of fashion lines and book deals. So what am I doing reading a book with her name and face emblazoned on its cover? I’ve become quite a fan of her recently launched Kohl’s line and several pieces have already ended up in my closet. Why not give her fashion-focused book a chance?
True to its title, Lauren Conrad Style is about Lauren Conrad dressing Lauren Conrad. Or, to quote Conrad’s dedication at the beginning of the book, «the wonderful team that spends countless hours to put [her] together» dressing Lauren Conrad. Although I could possibly see this appealing to the very young girl who’s just getting interested in fashion, there’s nothing here that a quick Google search for style advice won’t yield. My favorite feature is when Conrad is shown wearing her little black dress in several specific styles, offering examples of how to get five separate looks from one single item. The book would have been so much better had it continued with this line of thinking. Instead, we get basic key pieces that are indeed basic (the aforementioned LBD, t-shirts, jeans) and tips that range from the comically obvious (Department stores are big! Boutiques are small!) to the downright dumbfounding (Don’t try swimsuits on in the store. Order a bunch online and try them on in your home.). The most dominate thought I’m left with is how fun it would be to make my own book showing off my closet. I know I’d love it, so surely everyone else would! Right? . more

I’ve always loved Lauren Conrad’s style and this book is a really good reference to have with plenty of advice and top tips without trying to remove your own unique style.

For me, the key pieces or basics where quite helpful as I often fall into the trap of buying something and never wearing it. And Lauren looked simply stunning in all the pictures!
I liked how it wasn’t just aimed at girls or at women. She adressed all ages from school wear to work wear with tips that everyone could use. And I liked that she gave her own life experiences and seemed relatable.
Overall, what makes this book good it that it provides the reader with the confidence to try new styles or just update their style but most importantly makes them feel good about themselves. I was also glad how she advised women not to idolise magazines explaining what really happens at a photoshoot.
This isn’t really a book for reading its more of a reference or guide but a good one 🙂 . more
