Here at Who What Wear UK, we are always looking for a new style icon to obsess over, and the latest fashion week regular we can't stop looking at pictures of is German makeup artist Stella von Senger. She might wear the cult buys you see all over your Instagram feed, such as the Paloma Wool shirt and Gucci logo sweatshirt, but she doesn't dress like everyone else. Her look is all about the unexpected and eclectic mix, favouring dramatic silhouettes, wacky sunglasses and oversized earrings. She explained to Vogue that her love for earrings came from her mother: "All the women in my family wore big earrings, and as a young girl, I had admired their look. So when my mother stopped wearing earrings, she gave me her magic box full of the biggest, most beautiful earrings I had ever seen." Before you ask, yes, she does have an Instagram page, which is filled with her on-the-go outfit shots. She is also quickly becoming a street style favourite and has recently starred in a campaign for one of the coolest new shoe brands, Aeyde.
