did i miss the memo that those stoles were, in fact, to be worn as scarves?

it's funny that she and marc both wore the same stole the same way halfway across the world from each other.

Obsessed with her style she wears Prada and Miu Miu so well, and mixes it so originally.

I knew she would rock the Prada stole like no one!!!
The colorful Fur+Leather combo is amazing.

i don't like either of the last two images. I think ADR still takes the cake with the prada stole so far.

it's so obviously a self-deprecating joke... all she is lacking is the bone across her little pigtail... shala's humor is like that, does anyone here read her blog?

as for the rest of the look, i'm not thoroughly convinced...

O, The Oprah Magazine February 2011
"Special Effects: How to Find a Style That Sets You Apart"
(
Shala was one of the six women featured)
Photographer: Ruven Afanador



Quote:
"I buy things I find irresistible even if I don't have an occasion in mind," says Shala Monroque, a consultant for the Gagosian Gallery in New York. Wearing a bright pattern with equally bold jewelry is her go-to style secret: "I love colorful plastic bracelets and the clinking sound they make. When I was younger, I thought that if I wore bangles, I'd be a grown-up." This swirly sheath—finished with a stack of bracelets, a striking beaded necklace, and platform sandals—is perfect for a day's work.

Sheath, Milly. Bracelets, Prada and Miu Miu. Necklace, Marion Vidal. Sandals, Prada.

Shala's Picks

Choose Mood- Lifting Tones
"Dark, heavy colors tend to drag me down—I'm drawn to beige and pink. A monochromatic outfit can make an impact, too," says Monroque.

Think Cheap
"Plastic bangles immediately and affordably add color to an outfit."

Know When to Be Bold
"If I wear a notice-me outfit, I have to be ready for the attention. I once wore a jumpsuit with a cape, and people were coming up to me to talk about it! If I don't want to deal with that, I'll go with something more demure."

Browse the Whole Store Visually
"I scan the racks by color, then fabric and texture and price. I look for things that resonate, that jump out from the rest."

BTW the first quote in the Oprah spot explains why she's so Prada and Miu Miu
