Please assault me!

(Tommy Ton for

I came accross one of the most amusing how to article yesterday by French illustrator and streetstyle blogger Garance Dore entitled "How to...Be Assaulted by a Horde of StreetStyle Photographers".  It is virtually a cheatsheet of what to wear and what to do if you want to be photographed and featured as a style icon / style inspiration. 

Based on her tutorial, there's 3 main tips:

  1. OUTFIT: Other than wearing key trend pieces of next season, the weirder your look (in a good way), the more likely you'll be photographed.
  2. ATTITUDE: Act like you're somebody important going to somewhere important with other very important people...even if you're none of the above.
  3. IN THE EVENT IF ALL FAILS: Bring an entourage of "fake" streetstyle photographers to attract the real ones or better yet, find an industry favorite fashion editor and attempt getting in the picture while she is getting photographed!
So once I can work out an editor-envy waredrobe and the confidence to stand tall next to Anna Dello Russo, I might just run around NYC or Paris during fashion weeks hoping to be featured on the Sartorialist or Jak & Jil.
