Posted on: 2009/02/11

ph: Eric Sposito

Stephanie Carta is with Elite NY and Myf Shepherd is with Next NY.

PONY RYDER: How would you describe your personal style Myf?

MYF SHEPHERD: Dark and creative but at the same time very laid back. I don't really have that many clothes... I practically wear the same thing every day. No one seems to have noticed yet... :D

Ph. :Jan Welters

PONY RYDER: Myf, you are vegan, so what is the best vegan dish for you?

MYF SHEPHERD: Anything my mum cooks. She can veganise any meal. At the moment my favourite thing is chickpea cutlets from the cookbook Veganomicon.

PONY RYDER: And what is your favorite place in NY, in Milan; in Paris, in London?
MYF SHEPHERD: 'Snice in New York (best sandwiches in the world), I love Place Vendome in Paris (it has my favourite sculpture), Camden in London (good people watching), and I don't really know Milan, but I love the convoluted, intimate streets in the centre.

Bianca TFS, TFS

PONY RYDER: Of all the shows You both did, which one does relate to Your personal style?

MYF SHEPHERD: Charles Anastase. It was dark and creative but at the same time very laid back.

STEPHANIE CARTA: Balenciaga and Givenchy. Balenciaga because I learnt so much about style class and cuts and saw the whole process of making a collection evolve. Not only that but my own personal style is and was influenced by everything I learnt there! Givenchy, because I have this catwoman feline obsession and my outfit for that show was totally me dressed in my best character!

PONY RYDER: What is your favorite runway look Myf?

MYF SHEPHERD: I thought that everything in Kenzo was beautifully done and tied together really well. It was a story as well as a show.

Myf: theones2watch

PONY RYDER: Can you name some stores or brands where you usually shop for clothes?

MYF SHEPHERD: I love markets. There are great ones in Australia, like the Fringe Bar Markets, Surry Hills Markets and Rooftop Markets.

STEPHANIE CARTA: I don’t like to go "shopping". Usually I come across the best finds by accident, but lately I’ve been taught a few new things on style too from some of my top Aussie friends... like sometimes that you need to get the credit card out to make a quality purchase rather than buy too many half-half things..

Ksubi is always a favorite: hands down for cool everyday stuff, like jeans, sunnies, etc., in good washes and original styles.
Assin is a boutique in Sydney that stocks the credit card type purchases if your lucky enough for that, you could pretty much dress for anything from there… Labels like Rick Owens and Ann Desmeulemeester
Vintage stores, markets and random garage sales I’m sorry but I can’t do without them and it’s good when you only got 5 bucks in your wallet!
PONY RYDER: Thumbs up! :)

PONY RYDER: What are Your "must have" items for this season or better say this winter?

MYF SHEPHERD: I like coats...

STEPHANIE CARTA: A new pair of "Undercover" navy woolen tights with brown leather patches. Warm, comfy and they look hot, can wear them to castings or bed haha

A good warm comfy oversized hoody, in grey navy or black/ That’s done well so I can still somehow look classy (esp if its Ann Desmeulemeester) You can layer under big jackets or wear over dresses, jeans and tees.

Boots. Flat well made black leather ankle boots. If they have a good shape you can wear them with everything, anywhere. Unless you got a hot platform version to wear out at night...
A fur jacket, even if its fake, bomber style, old lady style, red or beige, they are good to have fun with and an easy way to "dress up". My one right now is a fake beige mid length/
Ksubi jeans. I had to pack four pairs and that was hard for me.

PONY RYDER: What did you learn from "the artists" you worked with?

STEPHANIE CARTA: So much, a lot of stylists I’ve worked with here are actually good friends of mine too, along with designers etc. So we sit around and talk about it all day! I think for me though I can’t put that down to simple facts, I get style ides and inspirations from my friends mostly and things I see around the world...

MYF SHEPHERD: They keep trying to teach me to curl my eyelashes, but I can't seem to get it.

Levi's 501 Ph: David Vasiljevic, F.dir: Nicola Formichetti

PONY RYDER: ...and from the make up artists?

STEPHANIE CARTA: I try to ignore them when they talk about facial injections and I just keep it simple. Mostly listening more to what my facial place or naturopath has to say because I don’t like wearing much make up. I have learned though that it’s good just to subtlety emphasize your features with say mascara, cheek color and maybe a bit of lip. I also have heard some of the funniest stories in my life any time I’ve been in the same room at Pat McGrath!!

MYF SHEPHERD: I don't wear makeup when I'm not working. I like to give my skin a break. I'm interested in trying out some mineral based makeup though.

Myf: Ph: Cedric Buchet, Sty: Sabrina Schreder for 10 magazine spring09/ Carta: catwalking Bianca TFS

PONY RYDER: Favorite fragrance?

STEPHANIE CARTA: I just got Tom Ford Black Orchid!!!! I was introduced to it by a friend recently and it’s supposed to be a secret because i don’t want anyone else to have it but there you go. I love mixing up my favorite fragrances too though so it’s always a different secret combination...

MYF SHEPHERD: I rarely wear fragrances because they're often so overpowering. I like rose geranium essential oil though.


PONY RYDER: What is your ultimate beauty indulgence?

MYF SHEPHERD: I can't think of one. I hate facials and massages.

STEPHANIE CARTA. Getting a really good facial from Isabel Almeida in Sydney... And being able to afford to eat healthily, see my naturopath, and get a really good massage every now and then! Special jewelry to wear on me to remind me of all the amazing friends in my life. It looks cool too haha...
