Chiara Ferragni is a 25 year Italian law student. She lives in Milan and enjoys the usual pursuits of fashion, photography and travel. So what makes this particular young woman unique? The fact that she is the name behind The Blonde Salad, one of the most popular and influential fashion blogs in the world today.
NAME: Chiara Ferragni
FROM: Cremona, Italy
OCCUPATION: Law Student and Fashion Blogger
SIGNATURE STYLE: High end pieces mixed with unique boutique finds, pastels, pretty dresses or flouncy skirts, oversized sunglasses, tiny shorts and always a pair of heels from her eponymous shoe label. She also loves Alexander McQueen and Alberta Ferretti. Her style icon is Miroslava Duma.
YOU MAY RECOGNISE HER FROM… her incredible blog, The Blonde Salad, the front row of the Milan shows, Anna Dello Russo's birthday party, backstage at Victoria Secret papping photographs, and probably the frequent flyer airport lounge.
WE LOVE HER BECAUSE… her heartfelt enthusiasm for fashion is contagious. No wonder her blog has gone viral. With such a wealth of press surrounding her, a flood of invitations to be a part of campaigns and events, and over 600,000 visitors to her website every month, you would think that she would get rather big-headed, but, Ferragni's natural charisma and down to earth attitude makes her one of the most likeable fashionistas around.
WE CAN’T WAIT FOR… the continued growth of her blog, and involvement with many more brands in the future. She's already hosted an event with Dior, walked for Ferretti at Pitti Uomo and collaborated with Louis Vuitton, so 2013 certainly looks bright. Luckily, she's just launched her first iPhone App, so we can be super up-to-date when her next projects are announced.
INTERESTINGLY, two of her loved ones often make into her style posts: her boyfriend, Richie and her French bulldog, Matilda. They say the best accessories are your friends and family and The Blonde Salad does make a pretty good example.
