LOU DOILLON, PARIS | @loudoillon
Artist and model Lou Doillon is the epitome of the classic French elegance, and as the daughter of silver screen icon, Jane Birkin, fashion is literally part of her DNA. As a scion of style royalty, this It Girl is every inch a Parisian, accompanied with all the mystery and a cool, calm disposition enrobed in chic vintage clothes. She’s frequently spotted in the front row at Fashion Week and when she’s not engaged with fashionable preoccupations, Lou is also a musician who expresses herself through romantic sound confessionals. For all things Parisian chic, this fashion girl is the absolute go to.
CHIOMA NNADI, NEW YORK | @nnadibynature
You can take the girl out of London but you can’t take the London out of the girl. Fashion news director of Vogue, Chioma Nnadi is always picture perfect with her striking sartorial combinations. Although she is originally from Britain, her roots don’t nullify her New York card. Having lived in the Big Apple for the entirety of her fashion career, Chioma’s style certainly proves to be a fusion of its characteristic stylings and the eclectic London scene altogether. Often clad in layered ethnic prints, vibrant colors and military jackets, we’re absolutely taking notes from this stylish power player. Follow this chic lady for adventurous style inspirations.
IRENE KIM, SEOUL | @ireneisgood
Model Irene Kim is hitting the American fashion radar and taking over with her quirky, genuine spirit. At 15, she was offered a modeling contract in Seoul after moving from Seattle. The agency urged her to undergo plastic surgery and warned that dyeing her hair would ruin her career but Irene refused to go by the rules and asserted herself to climb up the fashion ladder on her own terms. Now she’s making waves as a social media sensation and across the globe as a TV personality and beauty contributor for Estée Lauder. When it comes to beauty and cool girl styles, Irene is the gal you’ll want to follow.
REECE KING, LONDON | @reeceking_
With nearly half a million Instagram followers and a refreshing confident attitude, model and designer Reece King is seeing success attached with his fearless authenticity. It’s safe to say that he’s the model of the moment—scoring campaigns and covers left and right as well as his clothing line flying off of digital shelves. He had his own “break the internet” moment with a daring spread in Coitus Magazine, sporting mesh tights and breaking all the codes of gender. But Reece is more than just a handsome face, this British gent uses his influential platform for social activism and doesn’t shy away from speaking about pressing world issues. Not only do we love his aesthetically-pleasing photos, but we’re also here for his refreshing takes on significant matters.
JUSTINE LEE, HONGKONG | @justinelee425
One look at Justine Lee, you can easily tell that she’s a noted figure in the industry whose stylish flair comes naturally. The Parsons School Of Design grad and fashion director of Hongkong Tatler is a regular at womenswear fashion shows and radiates fashionability like no other. She’s proved each season that she can effortlessly execute an array of styles—one minute, you’ll spot her in Chloé’s chimerical bohemian garbs, and Saint Laurent’s rocker chic look the next. Best of all, she pulls it off with casual ease. If there’s one fashion girl we’d follow for unique sartorial inspiration, Justine is absolutely our top pick.
GILDA AMBROSIO & GIORGIA TORDINI, MILAN | @gildaambrosio / @giorgiatordini
Milanese designers Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini are two of trendiest girls in the fashion scene right now. Their newly launched womenswear label, Attico is the embodiment of the sultry Italian It Girl style and has quickly gained a cult following, sported by fashionable ladies like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kourtney Kardashian. Despite having quite opposite aesthetics—Gilda favours bold, adventurous dressing, while Giorgia prefers the classics — the duo merged their visions to create the modish contemporary label. Currently, they’re traveling back and forth from one fashion capital to the next and continuing the process of designing seasonless clothes that infuse luxury accents into everyday wear. The best part is, the line itself resonates with their own personal styles. As two new power players in fashion, these girls surely deserve a follow.
OLGA KARPUT, MOSCOW | @okarput
