The March issue of AVENUE features our seriously selective list of the 39 Best Dressed Women in New York. Here is just one of the 39…keep coming back to see who else made the cut!


Shala Monroque: Work Of Art


Fearless, youthful and totally individualistic, Shala Monroque, the girlfriend of art world kingpin Larry Gagosian, has become an overnight fashion and social it-girl. St. Lucia-born Monroque counts Diana Ross, Miuccia Prada, Nina Simone, Bob Marley and Bob Dylan as her idols, and once defined her personal style as, “Ummm . . . moody.” Expect the unexpected with Monroque: in a sea of charcoal grey, she’ll be the one wearing bright banana yellow. When she isn’t shopping in her favorite city, Marrakech, you might spot her at her beloved Prada on Broadway or else blogging about art, life and inspiration for Pop magazine.
