Who said bloggers were just a phase? Answer: everyone. But, as one of the original fashion bloggers has proved-they’re here to stay and not only that, they’re more successful than ever, as Chiara Ferragni has proven. Founder of The Blonde Salad, the model and fashion blogger has well and truly pushed the boundaries by landing her very own Vogue cover! Gracing the front of the Spanish version of the fashion bible, Chiara has single-handedly shown how powerful a blogger can be.
Starting her blog in 2009 the Italian has since gone on to become the face of Guess jeans, collaborated with brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Max Mara, Chanel and Tommy Hilfiger as well as publishing her own book. Although many in the fashion industry blast fashion bloggers for “cheating” their way to the top, you can’t fault Chiara’s hard work and dedication to get to where she is today-it’s an inspiring story for all.
