WELCOME TO CLASS...

Who's that girl?! Or those girls, even?!

Ever wondered who those beautiful people are, that you just keep seeing ALL OVER THE PLACE -this awards show, that film premiere, those fabulous parties- and it always seems like they just popped out of thin air... Well, here STYLE 101: introduces you to a couple of faces that you may -or may not- be familiar with (and we'll keep you posted on those to come).

SHALA MONROQUE

One to watch, this socialista is the editor at large for London's Pop magazine, and is romantically linked to American art dealer Larry Gagosian (owner of the Gagosian art galleries located in New York, London, Italy and Greece).


Monroque has been spotted all over the world, lately, and with every pit-stop she's turned out more fabulous than ever!


Via his blog foracertainworld.blogspot.com, Sir André Leon Talley (perhaps the most famous editor at large, for Vogue), has even mused about Monroque, he says, "I welcomed her to a work event once, and she barely said hello --but she looked dreadfully chic, inappropriately dressed in skintight jeans, sky high heels and a shrunken black leather motorcycle jacket. Some lives need no dress code."


And as the iconic style blog jakandjil.com stated in December 2009, "Shala Monroque is chic. nuff' said!" We concur.



MAVIS SPENCER


Another one to watch, this bronze bombshell is a student, model and the daughter of award-winning actress Alfre Woodard.


Most recently, she was responsible for handing out statues and assisting guests on and off stage as Miss Golden Globe for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association says it chose Spencer because, "she's a lovely, multi-talented and very poised young lady." Indeed she is, and in her spare time Spencer is an equestrienne show jumper, she rides her award-winning horse Winia van't Vennehof.


Spencer was a silver medallist at the 2008 Prix de States (a premier junior competition), she also represented the United States at the 2009 Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney Australia.

Spencer has also appeared in Teen Vogue and InStyle magazine, and will be attending Columbia University in the fall.
