If you are not familiar with Miss Lezark, you might have been living under a Margiela ostrich egg. Leigh is probably best known as one-third of the New York City-based DJ trio The Misshapes, alongside Geordon Nicol and Greg K., but her crystaline-eyed looks and enviable style has made her an in-demand model, Chanel ambassador, and one of Stylcaster’s 50 Most Stylish New Yorkers.

Leigh is without a doubt a creative talent, unforgettable beauty, and style icon, and after spending some time chatting with her and Geordon at the end of the Tommy Hilfiger flagship launch party last December, I can definitely add down-to-earth, warm, and generally fantastic person to the list.  And, as I also found out that night, Geordon is from a nearby town to mine in Ontario, Canada, so I am now even more of a Misshapes fan.

Catch some of Leigh’s latest fashion work in Chanel’s online exhibition, The Little Black Jacket, and as the face of Emerson’s Fall 2012/13 campaign.
