Surprising to read Grammy Awards ratings were down more than 30%. Yet considering my experience, maybe this is to be expected. While I had the Grammy's on for both the Red Carpet and the show, I spent far more time surfing the internet than watching my television.
While not the whole story, poor fashion choices by most musicians at the Grammy's surely deserves some of the blame for my lack of interest. That night, I realized how few traditional celebrity icons inspire and influence my personal style. My true influencers are people like Miranda Kerr, Caroline Sieber, Olivia Palermo, and some beautifully curated websites like Sartorialist.
Miranda Kerr is a 29 year old Australian born model. I follow her on Instagram (as do over 1 million other people) and love her pretty yet playful style. She seems to have made such an amazing life for herself, including marrying and having a son with actor Orlando Bloom.
Caroline Sieber is a fashion stylist, from Vienna Austria but now living in London England. She is a Chanel brand ambassador, which obviously would help anyone look amazing! And while not a model she's one of my favorite style icons, especially how she knows to choose outfits that accentuate her best asset, her amazing long legs.
Olivia Palermo has been one of my favorite style influencers for years. Hard to believe she is only 26 years old, since I have followed her blog www.OliviaPalermo.com seemingly forever. She always looks amazing wearing outfits from my favorite designers, and New York City as a backdrop always adds so much to her photos.
Curious to hear, who are your style influencers, and why?
