I love everything about this girl -- her MARC BY MARC JACOBS wardrobe -- the jacket, the leather shorts (or whatever they are) -- love the hair, the gold chain, but I especially loved her name, which of course I can't remember exactly what it was since I lost the scrap of paper I scrawled her info on, but it was like Lady Poon, or something equally outrageous/awesome.

In Paris, I have a photo of TV presenter Alexandra Golovanoff in the red GUCCI suit with gold buttons that was used in the campaigns, and another girl a little less glam but no less chic in her mostly VINTAGE outfit accented with an HERMES scarf. In Tokyo, we can see what happens to lowwww drop-crotch pants when its really windy outside. The black/yellow polka dot pants are from NE-NET, as is the t-shirt, and the shoes are from CONVERSE. Next is Becky in a VINTAGE floral print jumpsuit and a model in Sydney wearing a blue sweaterdress.

After reading all the hubbub over Susie Bubble and Pam Hogg on her blog, and the mentions on Refinery29 and Racked, I thought I would dig into the photos from Fashion Month for some un-posted shots of our beloved Susie -- a real style inspiration. Here she is in a cropped TOGA leather jacket with a sheer dress over a giant sequin FOREVER 21 dress, with blue leggings, a brown furry hat, and shoes that I thought were ACNE but a commenter said they are customized H&M shoes?

In London near Brick Lane is a girl in a cute blue CACHAREL coat with black LEE jeans and shoes from BIBA, in NYC's SoHo is a woman in a black/white DKNY cardigan and BALENCIAGA bag, and a gal in a red shirt, metallic silver boat shoes, and carrying the JEREMY SCOTT cherub bag. Ricky is in Melbourne in a VINTAGE grey suit with MJOLK shoes, and Yang Hee Min is in Seoul in a black VANDALIST jumpsuit.

Here's another of my favorite photos from Australia Fashion Week. It's Holly Garber, who does PR for quite a few Aussie labels like Marnie Skillings, CHRONICLES OF NEVER, and Sydney designer-of-the-moment, DION LEE. She's actually wearing a jacket and turned jeans from Dion Lee, as well as a grey BASSIKE t-shirt and the mesh heels from STELLA MCCARTNEY.

Miho in Tokyo is in a VINTAGE Van Halen t-shirt, green sunglasses, and black/red shoes, TeenVogue's Gloria Baume is in a blue plaid shirt with a nifty gray 3.1 PHILLIP LIM strip'y skirt, and a dude in Paris in the nude MARTIN MARGIELA bodysuit that I also have a photo of Carine Roitfeld in...

I really like this guy -- Parn, from Melbourne -- in a cardigan & t-shirt combo from THE LABEL UNDER CONSTRUCTION and CLAUDE MAUS, with extra long slouchy sleeves. The JEROME DREYFUSS bag looks pretty nice too, and I still love the drop-crotch pant thing, and I like the patent leather ATO high-tops from Japan.

Next is Yuki in Shibuya, Tokyo, very grey with a grey GGD shirt, grey hat, and grey pants with that elastic thing on the bottom -- not sure what thats called. Yuri Seok is a fashion student in Seoul wearing a VINTAGE jacket and lace dress, black lace VIVIENNE WESTWOOD tights, red and white striped Where's Waldo'ish socks with bright yellow DR MARTENS boots. Next, are two kids in NYC -- on in a black jacket with grey lining and a Gold's Gym t-shirt, and a guy in a JEREMY SCOTT musical note print top with SPERRY topsiders. Finally, there's L'Uomo Vogue's Giovanna Battaglia in a slightly more relaxed look.

Paul Bui from Oyster Magazine was my favorite guy to photograph at Australian Fashion Week this season. Here's one outfit -- a black WORLD double-jacket thing, over a black AMERICAN APPAREL t-shirt, with black JUNYA WATANABE baggy drop-crotch pants, and black boots either from MARNI or ARMANI, but I think he said Marni...

Another photo of TeenVogue's Jane Keltner in Paris with a black DRIES VAN NOTEN coat over a purple THAKOON dress with knee-high black boots. In NYC, I have Aisha in a cute blue jacket with black and white striped pants, and a girl in Soho looking very 90s with the denim jacket, flannel, hat, and accessories. Soo Min Park in Seoul is in a red plaid jacket with black APRIL77 jeans and black NUMBER (N)INE boots.

This one is from the insane TOPSHOP opening in NYC a few months ago. I'm pretty sure the fella works for Topshop since he's in all TOPMAN and is wearing an all-access badge. Or maybe he was one of the 20 in-store DJs that weekend, I dunno. I actually just bought that jacket in white at the Singapore branch...

Not wearing any Topman is Hiroki Hayashi in Tokyo, who is in a grey JULIUS vest with shirt and backpack from GGD, brown/orange hippie'ish shorts, and brown DR MARTENS with yellow/brown woven things on the side. Vika is in Paris wearing her own designs, I think, and Tim is in Melbourne wearing also stuff from his label, FROM BRITTEN, with black CHEAP MONDAY jeans. Yang Seung Ho is in Seoul with a KRIS VAN ASSCHE jacket with a hoodie from APC, a snake-print MARJAN PEJOSKI tank top with CONVERSE shoes.

Model, Myf Shepherd, who supposedly was rejected from Australia's Next Top Model for not having what it takes, is shot here making her return to Sydney after a whirlwind year walking for almost every major European designer and shooting a number of editorials. She's wearing a VINTAGE coat with a ROMANCE WAS BORN dress, purple heels, and carrying a BALENCIAGA bag.

In Paris, we have photos of Elle Magazine's Kate Lanphear, and also I think an editor from Harper's Bazaar Australia wearing the white and black JOSH GOOT boots, and also a woman wearing a coat from KAVIAR GAUCHE with WHYRED shoes. Yoo Seong Kim is in Seoul with a CODES COMBINE jacket and khaki pants, red SPRING COURT shoes, and ZARA shirt.

Here's my pal Diana Hong in Soho, after our lunch at Lure Fish Bar (the lure burger is great, btw) -- wearing stuff from two of my favorite designers -- the black rope hoodie from BERNHARD WILLHELM and a sparkly dress from TSUMORI CHISATO. She's also wearing brown boots and carrying a black VANESSA BRUNO bag.

Also in NYC is a dude on Prince Street wearing a bunch of RICK OWENS and NUMBER (N)INE, Danny in Melbourne with a grey VANANA GOLD LABEL jacket with grey TOPMAN cardigan, black CHEAP MONDAY jeans, and white SCHMOOVE shoes, Andre J in Paris being Andre J, Giovanna Battaglia in Paris carrying her sister's bag, and Min in Seoul with a black PAUL HOMME coat, black ZARA pants, and a silver VIVIENNE WESTWOOD necklace.

Here's Divya, owner of Sydney boutique Pretty Dog. We figured out that I'm pals with her upstairs neighbor and actually stayed there last time I was in Sydney. Small world, I guess. So, she's got on a blue CHRISTIAN DIOR jacket over a blue shearling KAREN WALKER vest, with rolled-up green VINTAGE pants, and a pair of TRISTAN BLAIR heels with a lot of buckles.

Last season, Susie Bubble stayed at my house during fashion week. We decided to play dress up with my clothes, and one of the photos is this one in my Brooklyn apartment -- Susie in my red and white polka dot silk COMME DES GARCONS shirt with a blue sequined PETER JENSEN top made into a bow, with polka dot H&M pajama pants, and MARNI wedges (hers, not mine...). Also in NYC is a dude in a studded leather jacket, a girl in Paris in a sparkly gold turtleneck, and Seong Min Lee in Seoul in self-made pink/teal tights and CONVERSE shoes.

Yet another of my favorites, here's Julia Frakes from Bunny Bisous & Paper Magazine -- in front of Popeye's (one of my favorite restaurants). Julia's vegan though, and is actually carrying a CHANEL vegan satin bag, with a scarf also from CHANEL. She's wearing a lovely white and green PROENZA SCHOULER dress with FALKE leggings and black and white heels from STELLA MCCARTNEY, and a cute LANVIN pearl bow necklace.

Next is Nicholas in NYC in a THOM BROWNE cardigan with white arm-stripe, with a shirt also from THOM BROWNE, rolled-up PATRIK ERVELL pants, and a bag from DANA LEE. Lored Abood is at Australia Fashion Week in an ARNSDORF skirt, black THERESE RAWSTHORNE jacket and RITTENHOUSE t-shirt with shoes from BALLY. Kim Woon Ki is in Seoul in mostly ORDER-MADE with a bowtie from FERRAGAMO, and a woman in Paris in a 3.1 PHILLIP LIM jeweled dress and YSL heels.
