And Once Again: Napa Model Michele Ouellet Stuns In Vogue!

THUMB
Um, remember when we made that little prediction that Napa Valley-born model Michele Ouellet was about to blow up in 2012? Well, we're sitting here dusting off our shoulders a little bit after spotting the beauty in the February issue of Vogue.
Shot by fellow St. Helena resident (now NYC-based photographer) Claiborne Swanson, Miss Ouellet (who also runs the Lorenza Rosé wine company with her mama) is sitting pretty in the Index pages of the glossy in a rustic-, Northern Cali-inspired "Country Strong" feature.
Picnic-worthy plaids (including a killer Steven Alan suit that's immediately found its way onto our want-list), comfy, hill-savvy flats, a swoon-inducing mint-hued bike, and straw accessories abound. Naturally, it's all making us want to book a Napa-bound vacation, stat!

Oh, and another fun fact: We're apparently not the only ones that think Ouellet is a dead ringer for J.Crew's visionary leader Jenna Lyons. Ouellet tells us that the folks on the Madewell set actually refer to her as Lil' Jenna. Awwwww.
