Stephanie Lake, Best-Dressed PhD, The "New" International Best-Dressed List, Fashion Wire Daily / Daily Fashion Report
Posted on June 13 2016
What sets her apart: Dr. Stephanie Lake has the distinction of being only the fifth person in the world to hold a PhD in decorative arts, material culture, and design history. She is also the world’s foremost Bonnie Cashin scholar and caretaker of the Bonnie Cashin archive . She was extremely close with the late, great, iconic designer and penned a book, “Bonnie Cashin: Chic Is Where You Find It” published by Rizzoli. Her fashion style is a well-considered, thoughtful mix of Bonnie Cashin, vintage, and designer pieces, which she accessorizes with high heels, huge hats, wide belts, and her own jewelry. Oh, did I mention that in addition to everything else, she is also a jewelry designer with her own otherworldly collection (www.stephanielakedesign.com) combining elements of Hollywood Regency, mid-century, 70’s era Fleetwood Mac, and glam rock?
