Our Canadian fashion godmother. Her name is Jessica Mulroney.
She is sassy.
She is the ultimate cool Montrealer girl.
You know what, she is our fashion godmother.
You may have known her already for her segment on the CityLine with one of our favorite TV personality Tracy Moore.
But let me introduce you to the talented, fashionable and cool Jessica Mulroney.
The first time I read about Jessica was around 2008. I was a die-hard Hello Magazine. I couldn’t wait to buy my copy of Hello during the lunch hour and eating at a nice Italian restaurant looking to Queen Mary Boulevard. I remember the magazine issue talking about Ben and Jessica’s wedding like it was yesterday. I was alone at the restaurant and next to me, Richard Garneau was having lunch. Richard Garneau was our ultimate sports anchor. He gave so much flavour commenting ice skating competition to the Olympic hockey finals. That Friday was magical.
I still wanted to keep my cool but I wasn’t shy reading my Hello Magazine and reading the love story between two people. I got a really soft spot for romance.
I was so taken by the simplicity of Jessica’s dress and I found her to be so beautiful. During that moment, I was curious about this Montrealer fashion style. As the years passed by, I did see more and more her fashion sense. And I liked it. She can be bold but elegant.
My style has always been minimalist with a preppy touch. But I always admired women that take some fashion chances.
Jessica is Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau fashion secret weapon.
For the bride to be, she is a bridal expert. She is collaborating with Kleinfeld and The Bay to help some brides finding their perfect wedding dress.
What I like with Jessica is that she is showcasing our Canadian fashion brand. And for that, I say a big amen!
Brand like Sentalar (I will get one of their coats in 2018), Erdem, Judith and Charles, Lucian Matis, Di Carlo Couture, Birks, Aldo Shoes and many more are on the map.
Talking about Meghan Markle look, I was really happy to see Sentalar coats on her during this past weekend.
I know that some people may have hoped for a bigger extravaganza look but I love the simplicity of this look. It’s very CBK (Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy).
With the three looks we have witnessed, she is still the same woman that loves our Canadian brand and she isn’t shy of showing it.
So today, I dedicated this Chronicle to Jessica Mulroney. She is inspiring, she is super cool like I wrote earlier and I’m joining her and many Canadians to showcase our beautiful fashion sense. We have the best of both worlds.
We have the chicness of the French Couture fashion and an audacity of a New Yorker.
Thank you Jessica for being a fashion strength in Canada and surely, you will rock this world.
