Meet Chiara Ferragni, Italian fashion blogger and founder of the highly influential fashion blog The Blonde Salad. The star has her own clothing and shoe line, 10.3 million Instagram followers, over 300,000 Twitter followers, two appearances on the Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list and an $8 million yearly income according to Forbes.
Chiara commented on the name of her blog in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I was at lunch with some friends one day and we looked down at our table-blond pasta, blond pizza-and then someone joked ‘Blonde salad,” and it stuck.”
Ferragni began posting selfies in 2006. The 30-year-old has since collaborated with designers like Louis Vuitton, Dior and Tod’s and was recently named the new Redken Global Fashion Ambassador. How does she do it?
Ferragni told CBS News, “My secret has always been to be true to myself.”
Her secret has undoubtedly been a key to success. Attached to her blog is her e-commerce site with links to clothes, shoes, accessories and looks from brands she has collaborated with such as Are You Am I, Edie Parker, IRO, and Rebecca Minkoff.
She also includes links to some of her favorite design collaborations. One featured look is from a collaboration with Gia Couture, the Chiara Black Satin Slip-On Mules. Another featured look is the Passionate Blazer from a collaboration with Bless The Mess.
