Occupation:Pilates Instructor/Wellness Coach/Founder, Karen Lord Pilates Movement
What she’s wearing:Balenciaga leather jacket, Rick Owens shirt, Ksubi jeans
Hometown:New York, NY
Describe your style:I dress like a New Yorker—black on black on black everything. In my studio, it's bodycon workout gear like Rick Owens tanks and tights, and I live in Lululemon leggings even when I'm not working. I'm sartorially schizophrenic, though. I go crazy for beautiful shoes—tall, colorful, glittery, and absurd—and throw all simplicity out the window when it comes to Ann Demeulemeester and Christian Louboutin. When there’s a rare instance of color, it's usually on my feet.
Juicing with my Vitamix, and now Alexander Wang for Balenciaga.
Any beauty secrets?Pilates makes everything look and fit better. Also, a vegetarian diet and natural organic skin care products—I love Josie Maran argan oil and use it for my face, hair, nails, everything.
Your saved eBay search words:Balenciaga, Miu Miu glitter, T by Alexander Wang, Rick Owens.
Who is your style icon?
I have some pretty stylish and creative friends and clients. They’re amazing and we inspire each other every day. And Grace Jones—that body!
