Style Icon: Lauren Santo Domingo

My passion for style and all things fashionable began at school and my fascination with the 6th form girls. As an awkward, geeky 13 year old those older girls seemed to be the epitome of grown-up style, an aspiration that seemed unattainable. Of course this was in the days before celebrity magazines and fashion blogs, when style was gauged by the music in the charts and a rare glimpse at Looks or Sky magazine.

When I started work things didn't change and the older women who'd worked in the industry for a few years and who wore their confidence and knowledge with a casual flair were my new role-models. And now I'm Mum to a growing 4 year old I'm still inspired by women who wear their individuality and personal style with aplomb.

One such icon of elegance is Lauren Santo Domingo who has recently launched the fashion website Moda Operandi.

As a contributing fashion editor and socialite she will have access to all the best designer clothes the catwalks have to offer, but you don't have to spend designer prices to get a similar style, here are some ideas from the high street. 

1. Blouse, £22.99, Mango
2. Skirt, £79.99 [sale], Hobbs
3. Chiffon dress, £235, Jigsaw 
4. Black trousers, £160, Jaeger

Who are your grown-up style icons? Are yours vintage models from years ago like Elizabeth Taylor or Audrey Hepburn, or do you have more modern icons like Florence Welch or Rachel Weisz?
