Yup, a blogger. But she also steps in front of the camera sometimes. Yup, and when she does that, nature celebrates. Just kidding. But yeah, it is somewhat like that to her fans. Oh, and to the photographers as well. Yup! To all those who bear witness to her poses.
Who is Chiara Ferragni?
Chiara is an Italian blogger, fashion designer, businesswoman, and model who is famous for being the founder of the popular fashion blog The Blonde Salad (she also wrote a book fo the same name). As a designer, she has collaborated with many of the world’s most high-profile brands, including Pantene, Tod’s, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Christian Dior.

In October 2009, Chiara launched her blog ‘The Blonde Salad.’ At that time she was pursuing her law studies at the Bocconi University in Milan. As the name suggests, the blog features contents of varied interests, including food, travel, and beauty. However, the eventual rise and success of Chiara in making her presence felt in the world of fashion led ‘The Blonde Salad’ to become more of a fashion blog. Within only a couple of years, she was introduced as “One of the biggest breakout street-style stars of the year” by ‘New York’ magazine.

In 2015, she also accomplished the feat of becoming the first fashion blogger to feature on any Vogue cover when she was chosen to grace the cover of that year’s April issue of ‘Vogue España.’
