This week's lookbooker of the week is the lovely Louise Ebel, a 21 year old art history student from Paris. We picked Louise in honour of the Paris Haute Couture fashion week, which was all last week (Dedicated's round up coming tomorrow). You may have seen Louise before, not only is she a Lookbook favourite, she's been featured in magazines and blogs across the world (I mean this quite literally) and is apparently a good friend of Dedicated's fave blogger The Cherry Blossom Girl (a friendship circle I would dream of infiltrating – tee hee)
Her style is undoubtedly fashionable, but it's the unique quirks that make Louise's style so admirable, her cute thick framed trademarked glasses (which she actually needs unlike a lot of trendsters nowadays), little feather details, and clothing with that vintage feel that is effortlessly done. What also strikes you about Louise's lookbook page is the quality of the photography, you get the impression this lovely girl is followed around Paris by a gaggle of Mario Testino's, and apparently she is (her photographers are always linked via her blog, some impressive work!)
Louise's style is in the details, and it all manages to come together in this glamorous, fabulous way that doesn't look over done and even on occasion artfully 'undone'. If you haven't guessed it already, I'm a huge fan, it's the kind of style that I long to be able to pull together every morning and something I continue to aspire to.
You can see Louise's other looks here, and be sure to check out her truly beautiful blog 'Pandora' right here.

I love her look! I bookmarked some of her vintage looks. I love that she looks like she isn’t trying too hard. Thanks for introducing me to Louise!

You’re welcome. These Parisian Fashion bloggers are to die for…I want to be them…just one!
I love her blog, together with The Cherry Blossom Girl, those girls do amazing things with fashion..
She surely has style, creativity and class. But what she probably also has is rich parents! Her clothes look expensive and sometimes very luxurious. Which normal art history student can afford that?

I think because she’s attained a certain amount of notoriety I believe she gets ‘gifted’ a lot and probably earns money as a result of her style fame. I’m just speculating though!
But you’d be surprised if you look at her Lookbook page where most of the stuff comes from! The red coat she’s wearing is from Primark, a dirt cheap store in the UK, couldn’t have cost more than £30 (I miss Primark!) So I think she definitely has a talent for pulling stuff together to look more expensive.
