Spotted at: Sixth and Lincoln Street.
Profession: Multimedia journalist/producer for Channel 7.
Favorite film: I find it fascinating how all of the lives interact in Crash. In reality, our lives really connect like that.
Autumn anthem: I haven't decided on one for fall yet, but Robert Glasper Experiment's Black Radio album was my summer anthem.
Style inspirations/icons: I love New York's fashion since it is so fashion-forward, and I also love Trey Songz's style. I always read GQ, as well.
Favorite color: I have always worn black and gray, but I'm into red now. I also love blue.
Favorite accessory: Chains and necklaces.
Style mantra: Sleek and classy. Nerdy but hip. I have to be versatile, as well. I always keep some clothes on standby and have to be prepared to cover a wildfire or a story in the snow.
Shops at: The Cherry Creek mall, Nordstrom, H&M, Goodwill and antique stores. L.A. is my favorite place to shop, since there are so many different stores there.
The Gucci sneakers in tandem with the striped, rust-hued tie and jacket make this look well-rounded. "The great thing about fashion in 2012 is that it's an extension of personality," Champion says. "You can have a lot of fun with your looks and change often."
