Influential casting-agent and fashion blogger on her site talesofendearment.com.
What’s the story?
The career of casting director, style icon and fashion blogger Natalie Joos first took flight in 1997, when she quit Belgium and moved Stateside to assist GQ’s Glenn O’Brien. O’Brien introduced Joos to top photographer Craig McDean, who subsequently asked her to manage his studio. After six years, Joos set out to launch a casting outfit of her own. She’s got the expert eye that matches up the right girls to the right shows; it’s this same knack for co-ordination that accounts for her ‘‘féminité joyeuse’, ensuring she’s on every best dressed list going. The Telegraph headlined: ‘Arrivederci, Anna Dello Russo; so long, Susie Bubble; there’s a new queen of street style, and this time she’s a casting agent.’
The List created a special print edition on Natalie, talking about the influence of fashion blogs, money, impressive men, and showing some of her favourite muses she portrayed on her Tales of Endearment site. On here, Natalie shows her seven Hidden Treasures in New York.
