Style Maven Series: Joanna Krupa
Joanna Krupa is a Model Maven who's heart is as big as her talent and beauty. She is an Animal Activist, Actress, Model, International Sex Symbol and Reality Star.
She has appeared on countless covers of international magazines, on both big and small screen and is an outspoken advocate for animals and NOT wearing FUR!
She has publicly voiced her disdain for the Kardashian's promotion, wearing and sales of FUR via their DASH stores.
I LOVE that Joanna uses her public platform to help the plight of animals who cannot speak for themselves.
She gave me her take on how we can help animals "Stop buying fur and educate people on how animals get skinned alive for their fur. There is no reason to put animals through so much pain for fashion. Stop buying products that are tested on animals, don't support horse racing, only eat cruelty free meat if u have to eat it but its not healthy even if u are not an animal lover. Adopt don't buy. If u see someone on the street abusing their pet call an authority and have the pet taken away from them."
Joanna, being born in Warsaw, Poland was a perfect host/judge for the show "Poland's Next Top Model". She also danced her way across the Screen in 2009 with partner Derek Hough on"Dancing With The Stars"
She has recently joined the cast of the BRAVO reality show"The Real Housewives of Miami"
She has a busy schedule and splits her time between LA and Miami but took the time to answer my Style Maven Questions
LG: Can you describe your personal Style aesthetic AND attitude about fashion?
JK: Wear what looks good not what the price tag says . I am a jean s and dress girl...I don't have a specific style but I love to find bargains and not over pay on designer clothes as I ll wear it once and then its a waste of money. I like to buy clothes that I can have for years and I focus on buying expensive shoes and handbags cause those accessories can last forever.
LG: What are the key components / pieces in your closet?
JK: Shoes and handbags
LG: How do you feel about Vintage Clothing and Accessories?
JK: I have never bought any but stylists have used pieces on me for shoots and I loved them. As long as it is not fur.
LG: What are you wearing this Summer? What will be the the key elements for your Fall 2012 wardrobe?
JK: This summer a bunch of summer dresses because you can wear them casual with flip flops or dress them up with jewelry and heels and they are so comfy.
LG: If you could give women 1 piece of STYLE advice, what would it be?
JK: Always wear heels with a dress because heels will make your legs look good. Flats are not flattering if u wanna impress someone :)
They are made for comfort only.
