10 Things: Maria Dueñas Jacobs is Wearing in Paris

The fashion month is in its final stretch, but the best is yet to come on the runways – and the same goes for fashion in the streets and on the front rows. American magazine editors, just like ELLE Accessories Director Maria Dueñas Jacobs, are now traveling from Milan to Paris and editing their looks they go. Timeless, modern and feminine, Maria always looks comfortable in her own skin, which is why she’s a major style inspiration. She can rock a Saint Laurent suede coat and jeans (spring trend alert!), just as much as she can master the modern ladylike look with a midi skirt paired to a basic top and high-heel sandals. Here she gives bits and pieces of her personal style choices (signet rings, midi lengths, cinched waists), among some fashion week essentials that she’ll be sporting in Europe this week.

Ten Things



White Wool Peacoat with Contrast Lining

A polished coat makes an outfit. This Gucci coat is so beautiful, but beware of coffee spills!

Striped Leather Lace-Up Sneaker

The Paris show + appointment schedule can be jammed packed and walking through cobblestones in heels is not so fun. I’ll opt for a comfortable fashion sneaker at least one of the days.

Saint Laurent

Small Suede Fringe Bucket Shoulder Bag

Love this small Saint Laurent bucket bag. The fringe makes it on-trend, but the size makes it not too loud and overbearing. It’s also a perfect bag to transition from day to night.

Victoria Beckham

Compact Crepe Flared Midi Dress

I’m pretty specific in my clothing, especially when it comes to dresses. This Victoria Beckham dress checks a lot for boxes off for me: mid-length (below the knee), dark color (navy) and cinched waist.

Gianvito Rossi

Leather Ankle-Wrap Sandal

These Gianvito Rossi heels are sexy but also sophisticated. The burgundy is so easy to pair with other colors – I especially love them with navy clothing.

Soho Small Denim Shoulder Bag

Two things I love: denim and vintage archive relaunches. This bag is timeless and worth the investment.

Derek Lam

Cashmere V-Neck Cable-Knit Sweater

I wear a lot of black and navy but like to sometimes mix it up with a jolt of color like this Derek Lam sweater!

Tom Ford

Celina T-Temple Sunglasses

All my sunglasses are a variation of a wayfarer. I love this Tom Ford pair – they are sleek and minimal.

I’m really big on moisturizing your face. I’m quite diligent about it and apply this Chanel moisturizer to my face, eyes and neck twice a day. It’s so light and the smell is delicate and pleasant.

David Yurman

Pinky Ring in Gold

I have an obsession with rings. I stack them and change them daily. One of my staples and go-to rings is nearly always a signet ring (I have a few variations). This one by David Yurman is a perfect classic option and becomes extra special when personalized.
