DRESS: MARIKA BROSE & MINK COAT: HUDSON BAY COMPANY from CARTE BLANCHE | SHOES: SCHUTZ SHOES | SUNGLASSES: CELINE

The 'Black Swan trend' became vastly popular after Natalie Portman's provoking performance & since then, we have been seeing this dark elegance in fashion trends, on the runway & even as a snapchat filter.

The swan symbolizes grace & beauty.

I was chasing perfectionism with this look of the dramatic black fur contrasting with my soft pinkish nude makeup, graceful meets gothic, & my sleek ballet-esque bun.

Could fur & faux fur be the hottest trend right now? FUR-real? As bold black fur is dominating the runways FUR-ociously, in-FUR-iating the long lasting debate, whether it's faux or not so faux fur, the only thing I FUR-got in my look is those fuzzy wonder shoes Carrie Bradshaw didn't do justice when throwing them at Berger to spice up their sex life.

No one did the fur coat justice like Carrie but nowadays, the fur trend is not just for 'ladies who lunch' & you don't just break out your mink to attend the opera. Fur has been toned down all the way & the way to rock it is with torn jeans, tees, sneakers, & huge designer frames.

Fur is not just your grandma's pelts anymore, although vintage fur will forever remain a classic, we are now seeing strong colour statements in fur & faux fur from black iris, charcoal grey, royal blue, & even emerald green.

My HUDSON BAY mink coat is that almost black dark brown fur adding a richness to the fur silhouette. I paired it with a MARIKA BROSE fluffy mink tube dress & I wanted to give the outfit some edge with my Schutz 'naked' boots to lighten the entire look.
