There are not just the Kardashian sisters, Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid in life. Who are the fashion editors who call the shots on the fashion planets? Who are the influencers who will be seated front row, it-girls backstage and the most street-styled starlets of the Paris fashion week? Spotlight on the 10 trendy girls of the season.
Her DNA: she has the comical potential of Cameron Diaz in There’s Something About Mary. This German, native of Hamburg with 2 million followers easily switches from a couture dress to a street look with baggy pants and trainers. Caroline has fun grimacing, but also hangs out with the top fashion figureheads.
Her added value during fashion week: her fittings in the most avant-garde showrooms, after-shows with her friends and TV reality style off moments.
Her DNA: a kind of feminine Loïc Prigent, the fashion journalist of Madame Figaro unravels the fashion sphere on a resolutely off-beat tone. Encounters with designers, socialite dinners, press presentations—she is always on the inside track and willingly shares with her 23,000 subscribers. To be taken 3rd degree.
Her added value during fashion week: her stories without filter. Before, during and after the shows, no what the fuck situation escapes her eagle eye. Particular sign: her quest for selfie kisses with celebs.
Her DNA: deluxe brands are wild about her. And with reason. This great looking Swede, installed in Paris, boasts a hefty 903k. Heavy duty. Carin Olsson is at ease in front as well as behind the camera. She juggles with her two caps—photographer and influencer.
Her added value during fashion week: her slick stories. The protégée of the Dior house shares her behind the scenes fittings, the most handsome looks of the shows and her coffee-shop escapades between two rendezvous.
Her DNA: New Yorker, fashion illustrator and companion of Scott Schuman (@thesartorialist, the king of street style, who also happens to be the ex of Garance Doré); she imposes herself as a real fashion horse, mixing couture and vintage pieces. But mainly, her dead-pan humour, never too heavy, is in pleasant contrast with the other fashion icons, constantly showing off. Special kudos for her small beagle Charlie. Distinctive sign: almost 200,000 followers.
Her added value during fashion week: present at most of the must-go shows, Jenny Walton comments on the looks with humour and shares her love for fabrics, perfect fits, colour and prints. In addition, the gourmet fashionista really knows how to spot the good restaurants we were not necessarily aware of.
Blanca Miró Scrimieri
Her DNA: ex-founder of two brands trusted by fashionistas from around the world, Vasquiat (exclusive fashion pieces) and La Veste (blazer and jacket specialists). Blanca is known for her super trendy, original looks, but mostly for spotting rare pieces. In other words, she is the kind of girl whose wardrobe we would dream of sharing—even if it means doing it with her 263,000 subscribers.
Her added value during fashion week: present on all the front rows of the latest London fashion week—particularly chummy with the entire Beckham family during the Victoria catwalk show… We definitely hope to see as many VIPs in Paris.
Her DNA: stylist for Les Fleurs Studio and model at Next, this fashion chameleon never goes to an event without her squad (Loulou de Saison & co), and her total label look. We adore salivating in front of her super trendy outfits #passiongucci!
Her added value during fashion week: between novelties for her brand, fittings and shootings for leading magazines, as well as outings with other influencer friends, María takes us everywhere! And we love it.
Her DNA: she’s a little bit the French Emily Ratajkowski with her perfect face and her Greek goddess body. Represented by the Elite agency, the pretty brunette is always between Milan or L.A. accompanied by her husband Riccardo Pozzoli (who is no less than the ex of Chiara Ferragni) and her adorable doggie Lupo.
Her added value during fashion week: our Frenchie it girl is front row during the shows as spectator as well as well as backstage when she models for Etam, Jacquemus or Jour/Né. A real source of inspiration with her spectacular outfits/hairdos.
Jeanette Friis Madesen
Her DNA: recognizable thanks to her signature fringe, the Danish stylist and consultant is amongst the most photographed gals after each fashion show. The reason? Her effortless allure and her trendy looks inspired from the 80-90s. And what if this Scandinavian gal were the new Parisienne?
Her added value during fashion week: she forms a winning trio with compatriots Emili Sindlev and Thora Valdimars. Unity is strength. These inseparables create the sensation at every front row.
Her DNA: this young Mexican perfectly combines her life as a mother and her role as a fashion influencer while sharing her looks on a daily basis with her million followers.
Her added value during fashion week: from New York to Paris, she does not miss a SINGLE ONE. Her outfits are studied in the slightest detail, right down to the small barrette that looks great on top label shoes.
Her DNA: Léa Julian, she is the new favourite of fashion shows around the world: Givenchy, Mary Katrantzou, Michael Kors… She is everywhere. Represented by the famous Elite agency, memorize her face: she is the Kendall of tomorrow!
Her added value during fashion week: follow the fashion show as though you were there, it’s possible with Léa, who shares with us in In Real Life her life as a model and all the fashion show backstage—it’s like being there!
