Lookbook: L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic

L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic

Target and H&M better look out - Banana Republic's collaboration with high end fashion designer L'Wren Scott is giving them a run for their money when it comes to diffusion lines.

The model-turned-designer recently teamed up with the Gap-owned retailer to put out a collection for next month, and oh how I'd like to get my hands on some of those pieces! From a ruffled, floral jumpsuit and lacy, blue little dress to patterned, deep green suit and the perfect New Year's Eve dress, Scott designed something for every woman (more photos after the jump) but yet with an added touch of her sophisticated, high fashion charm.

You can dust off your credit cards for December 5 (wisely launched during the holiday season!).

L’Wren Scott Was Too Tall for Fashionable Clothes

L'wren ScottL'Wren Scott could never find anything to fashionable to wear when she was younger because she was so tall.

The 6ft 3in designer - who is currently dating Rolling Stones legend Sir Mick Jagger- says while her height has enabled her to be a successful model, it also has it hindrances.

"I was so tall and so skinny - I was that kid who couldn't find anything to wear. All the cool kids would have jeans the right length and I would just think 'What am I going to do?'" she said.

As well as having a successful modeling career, L'Wren is also a well-respected designer after launching her own label in 2006 and says it's important for women to feel good in her creations: "I wanted to create things that you can always pull out of your closet and rely on. I wanted to create a timeless, classic collection of clothing that you can keep expanding on. If you don't feel good in it, don't wear it because you'll never look good."

L’Wren Scott Proud of Statuesque Height

L'Wren Scott and Mick JaggerL’Wren Scott is grateful for her height.

The model-turned-fashion designer, who is dating Rolling Stones legend Sir Mick Jagger, says being 6ft 3in tall has taught her to be comfortable with her looks and not worry about what anyone is saying about her.

“I think that I have always had composure. I don’t think that you can be 6ft 3in and care if people talk about you. So I think, just from sheer stature, I developed a kind of shield early on.”

As well as modeling and fashion designing, L’Wren used to be a stylist to the stars and says it was a privilege to play a big part in someone’s fashion choices: “I always felt honored to be asked, that somebody trusted you to help them with their personal style.”

However, she knew that while she was doing it, she never gave up on her dream to become a designer, something she has now achieved: “It wasn’t really the fashion focus I wanted. So I kept shifting my focus closer and closer to my objective of being a designer.”
