Ford’s Ana Claudia Michels doesn’t so smolder as she burns down whatever town in which it is you’ve temporarily sought refuge from forest fire — hot in other words. If that convoluted simile wrapped up in a metaphor doesn’t suit your fancy, then perhaps her feature in Elle UK January 2010 in an editorial photographed by Simon Burstall will. Titled “Tales of the City” this story somewhat didactically guides 9-5ers to temper the risk posed by shorts in the workplace by matching them with the odd trench or on-trend jacket. Full-bodied hair styling by Leonardo Manetti ensures the message is also not lost readers when delivered by the sultry Brazilian. Whether or not subscribers could possibly pull off Ana Claudia’s seventh look, cotton and polyester jacket, cotton shirt, and cotton shorts by Paul and Joe with or without the gold and leather Cartier wristwatch is neither here nor there. That look, Ana Claudia’s final look, a down-feather coat by Moncler, suede shorts by Chanel and cotton shirt by DKNY & Thomas Pink with the optional accessory of Hermès leather bag, as well as the rest of the story are clearly meant to inspire. No doubt they have.
