JBCStyle: Amy Lemons Style

For some of us 8th grade highlights include sneaking successfully into Pretty Woman and crooning to Sinhead O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U and Heart's All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You pretty damn well in the shower.

Amy Lemons was on the cover of Vogue Italia.

We told you from day one JBCStyle is about InsiderStyle, and we only write about and feature the individuals, designers, and labels we genuinely love and admire. Today we celebrate Amy Lemons  - yeah, we're proud of her for an incredible career which has included magazine covers for Bazaar, Elle,Vogue, Marie Claire and more as well as ad campains for Calvin Klein, Burberry, J.Crew, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors fragrance, Tommy Hilfiger and ah yes, that venerated little catalog our boyfriends steal - it's not a secret anymore, Victoria.

Before we tell you why we are really loving Amy today, let's give her career highlights a little whoop whoop style.

Not too shabby, Lemons. We caught up with Amy (she's back in NYC!) at the KiptonArt Presents the 20 Finalists for KiptonArt Rising 2011 at the Andrew Martin International showroom. We were psyched to see her rocking a Samantha Thavasa handbag - "I'm in love with this bag," Amy dished - if you missed it, check out our recent post on Samantha Thavasa designer Tinsley Mortimer.But that's still not the reason we think so highly of Amy.

The clip below embodies why we love Amy Lemons. In a career which doesn't often focus on the ability to speak and articulate one's opinion with clarity and conviction, Lemons dazzled on Ellen and with one simple statement managed to make our cultural obsessions with weight loss and achieving the "perfect body" seem. . .well, silly. Sometimes the most brilliant epiphanies are stated simply, with no affectation or alternative purpose. They're just true and real. Watch the clip below - you'll know what we mean the minute you hear it.

Love that. Here's to being a true vanguard, Amy.

"It's not all me," Amy shares, always happy to share credit. "I am just so happy right now at Ford. They have always supported me - personally and professionally. I cannot say enough about my agent Gary Gakin. For a model, being represented by a team who celebrates your individuality rather than dictating how you should conform to industry standards is not to be taken lightly. I am so very appreciative."

Lemons just finished a shoot for Glamour UK and we're looking forward to seeing her when we receive our Saks Holiday Book in the mail! What's Amy loving this fall? We had to ask. "Besides JBCStyle's InsiderStyle blog? Well, let's see," Amy laughs good-naturedly, then really focuses for a minute to edit down to just three picks. "Okay, this Fall I am absolutely obsessed with Sam Edelman's wedge booties. They're amazing. Just about everything Club Monaco is doing right now. Well priced, stylish, and a quick fix if you're on the run and need something perfect for just about any occasion. Finally, Levi's Curve jean is just an incredible fit. You have to try them."

Your style is just right, Lemons. Just like the porridge in The Three Bears.

Goldilocks style.
