Margie Van Elten Blommaert

With an arresting head of ash-coloured tresses framing her sharp features, it doesn’t take much for Blommaert to stand out. Regardless, the former model, talent booker and home care nurse turns heads and cuts a figure of cool in a wardrobe she describes as “practical”, but also steeped in attitude. Think: Aerodynamic knits worn with futuristic-looking dresses from Louis Vuitton, grounded with sensible sneakers or boots for an unexpected twist. This predilection for thinking out of the box is perhaps influenced by her frequent adventures across the globe. “One of my favourite cities in the world is New York,” the 51-year-old says. “Just the unpredictability of the place invigorates me.”
