I loved the collection Jeffrey Monteiro at Bill Blass showed. It was simple, beautiful and chic. And styled impeccably as always by George Cortina who I assisted for several years (1997-99 I think, right before I went to work for Polly Mellen). I always say that I learned how to be a fashion editor from Polly and how to be a stylist from George. He was a huge influence on me and I will always admire his eye and skills as a stylist. He taught me a lot during the time I assisted him and for that I will always be grateful. More pics and looks below (including a really old one of George from a shoot we did in the British Virgin Islands…)
