Elin Kling is one of the most stylish women I know. Not in the street-style kind of way—in fact, I don't think I've ever seen her in a color or a print. Elin has the best 'pieces.' She is a master picker of pieces: the perfect black watch, a spot-on '90s black-satin mule, or a featherlight black cashmere V-neck sweater from not Vuitton, not Stella, not Marc Jacobs, but Joseph. (I now get emails alerts for new Joseph items from Net-A-Porter.) Seriously, check out this girl's Top Shelf: it's like a case study for the perfect 'fashion person no-makeup makeup.' Sephora should box it all up in a Céline bag and sell it as a set. Her most recent beauty acquisition struck me as surprising and then immediately elicited a gimme that reaction: the murky bordeaux polish on both her nails and her toes, popping off against the all-black ensemble she wore front row at Alexander Wang on Saturday. “I've been wearing this polish all summer,” she told me. “Normally I always go for natural or a lighter manicure, but I was very into a darker polish. It gives a luxury edge. It's the perfect 'non-color' and works with everything you wear,” The shade in question? Chanel #18 Rouge Noir. I'll take it.
