There is so much action inside and outside the Bryant Park tents, it can be hard to absorb it all. Sometimes though, something—or someone—catches your eye and doesn't let go. For the past few years I have developed a few “style crushes” on fashionable women I look forward to seeing any chance I get.

Emmanuelle Alt epitomizes street-style chic. The French Vogue fashion director is fabulously unstudied and unpretentious, and her ability to just look cool has me borrowing bits of her style. She's been rocking over-the-knee boots over faded black jeans with a moto jacket for awhile now, and can even make a denim mini look amazing! I am notorious for hating denim miniskirts but I've got to hand it to her her—she pulls it off flawlessly. For an everyday look, I suggest pairing your OTK boots with baggy boyfriend shorts, black opaque tights, a basic slouchy tank, and a badass leather jacket.
