Bian­ca was fea­tured as a Nat­ur­al Hair Style Icon on Decem­ber 22, 2011.


Where are you from?
I’m livin’ and rep­pin’ the town known as Chi! 

Did going nat­ur­al affect your style choic­es at all?
Going nat­ur­al very much affect­ed my sense of style. I broke free. I became more dar­ing in my fash­ion choic­es ver­sus buy­ing things I real­ly liked and say­ing “maybe” or “some­day” I decid­ed my hair didn’t allow me to hide any­more, so I decid­ed to obnox­ious­ly stand out.

How does your hair com­ple­ment your style?
My hair is big and bold so I dress in bold col­ors. I love col­or block­ing, and clean lines. I don’t like any­thing frilly or fluffy. My hair does that enough.

How would you describe your style?
My style is nos­tal­gic. I don’t think I’ll ever dress futur­is­tic unless I was ref­er­enc­ing blade run­ner. My favorite era to pull looks from is the ear­ly 80s. Relaxed fits, androg­y­ny, bold state­ments.

What are the three favorite things in your clos­et?
Gen­er­al­ly my favorite things are an over­sized blaz­er, a relaxed but­ton down, and a high waist­ed trouser. (In all col­ors)

What are your three must-have items of cloth­ing?
I am dying for pas­tels and mints, girly col­ors in mas­cu­line cuts. Bold Sonia Rykiel inspired stripes, and any­thing from Aubin & Wills Spring Col­lec­tion.

Your style is col­or­ful. What’s your advice for select­ing and incor­po­rat­ing col­or into a wardrobe?
If it looks ridicu­lous your head­ed in the right direc­tion. Start with col­or block­ing, but pick your favorite col­or. Think com­pli­men­ta­ry col­ors, but in a new way. Instead of red and green, how about a mint blaz­er and east­er pink trousers. Good luck! ;)

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
