This is what happens when you ask Belgian-born Hanne Gaby Odiele to style herself. Renowned for her eclectic dress sense, the model is as famous for her unrelenting presence on street style blogs she is for her frenetic energy on set. With Alexander Wang on speed-dial and a killer career walking shows from McQueen to Dior, it’s not surprising that she’s ended up with a pretty enviable wardrobe. Now moving into styling, expect whatever she works on to be infused with her eccentric charm.
