1. Camille Charriere (@camillecharriere)
Before she was the fashionista du jour, Camille Charriere was actually in law. Her sharp-witted personal blog, Camille Over the Rainbow was an escape for her, but led to her writing for Net-a-Porter and being featured in several international magazines, like Vogue Paris, The New York Times and Elle UK. A regular fixture on the fashion scene, she’s also a co-host on the fashion podcast, Fashion No Filter. The half-English, half-French gal’s look is all cool insouciance.
2. Hilary Tsui (@hilaryxtsui)
Hilary Tsui is the wife of Cantopop singer Eason Chan, but the 44-year-old is also one of the founders of Liger, a fashion trendsetting and concept store based in Hong Kong. The former actress has a fresh, youthful bad-girl style that’s infused with quirkiness that proves that 40 really is the new 20.
3. Cecilia Ngan (@no7)
Her saturated blue, purple, pink and dreamy Instagram photos are what first catch your attention. Cecilia Ngan, the founder Hong Kong fashion and lifestyle app Sense7, goes heavy on athleisure which she mixes with lots of masculine pieces like coats, giving her a serious, but enigmatic, look.
4. Anne-Laure Mais (@adenorah)
Anne-Laure was a marketing and international management student before she began working as a social media manager for a French label. She started her blog in 2009 and has since been featured in The Telegraph, Topshop and WhoWhatWear. She launched her own label, Musier, earlier this year. Her look is retro, leaning into the 1970s and 1980s for inspo.
5. Ellis Ahn (@__ellisinwonderland__)
YGKPlus model Ellis Ahn is all about utilitarian cool. Her doll-like features are a contrast to her casual, off-duty model style.
6. Monica Ainley de La Villardière (@monicaainleydlv)
The other half of Fashion No Filter is Monica Ainley, another witty style icon that we look up to. The Canadian expat living Paris has cemented her It girl status in the fashion realm, and we love her smart but sensual style.
7. Alice Gao (@alice_gao)
New York-based photographer Alice Gao has a remarkable eye (see her personal portfolio and collaborative work at Aperçu for proof). Her Instagram feed is as pictorially peaceful — a reflection of her own fashion sense.
8. Jeanne Damas (@jeannedamas)
Founder of Rouje, a webstore that retails affordable clothing, Jeanne Damas is the picture of modernised old-world glamour with a touch of granny cool.
9. Fernanda Ly (@warukatta)
Australian-Chinese model Fernanda Ly is incredibly charming. Her bubblegum hairdo and Lolita aesthetics are striking, rebellious and fun.
10. Violette (@violette_fr)
As the current Global Beauty Director of Estee Lauder, French make-up artist Violette, like many rockstars, goes just by her first name. She is all Parisienne sophistication — minimal, natural and revelatory of the beauty within.
