When athleisure first showed up on the fashion scene it was all about looking stylish and being comfortable at the same time. The style was invented for women who want to make a fashion statement at the gym and wear their gym clothes around without getting the weird looks. Back in the days, athleisure would allow you to go for a quick lunch or have a drink with your friends while being super comfy. Afterward, you can hit the gym and workout in the same outfit. The athleisure style brought the chic and sporty coordinates, detailed leggings, cute sports bras and bralettes all looking great both at the gym and outside of it.
In 2017 the style took over the wardrobe of the biggest fashion influencers. Celebrities, models, bloggers, they all fell in love with the athleisure and gave it a bolder upgrade. We can’t say that the upgraded athleisure is comfy enough for the gym, but that’s not event the point anymore. The chic sporty pieces became an everyday staple to many of our favorite It girls regardless the fact that is not as comfortable as it used to be. The athleisure pieces are now paired with high heels, lace, satin, and a lot of accessories that you wouldn’t normally wear at the gym.
Take a look at the fashion icons who mastered the athleisure style and learn how to rock the hottest and the boldest trend of the year.
The model made a small but effective upgrade to her athleisure look by adding the tiny Louis Vuitton fanny pack. The fanny packs are another major trend this year and Sofia’s athleisure outfit was definitely all about the latest trends.
Bella is fierce when it comes to experimenting. While most people will frown upon high heels and track pants she went even further and completed the sporty look with bold over the knee heeled boots.
Hailey rocked the olive green satin zipper front jacket and pants coordinate with elegant pointed toe shiny high heels. She added couple small necklaces, massive gold watch and hoop earrings and stole the show on the streets.
The Blond Salad rewrote the rules of athleisure with her beige Gucci satin coordinate. She made a daring move by leaving the top unbuttoned without anything underneath.
Kim Kardashian fiercely paired the elegant sheer lace bodysuit with a piece you would definitely wear at the gym. The eye-catching Adidas track pants were spiced up with fishnet stockings and black high heeled sandals. In your head, lace and sporty track pants may sound bad, but we have to agree that Kim rocked this look.
Considering the fact that Gigi is a Tommy girl, she is the queen of the athleisure. She paired the sporty sweater and jacket with edgy velcro boots and made an unbeatable athleisure fashion statement.
We have a feeling that the bad girl Riri rocked the athleisure style way before other celebrities were aware of it. No wonder why she landed herself a deal with Puma and has a major success with her collections. Her latest clothing collection for Puma was all about the athleisure. She wears tracksuit pants and other sporty pieces with high heels and a lot of accessories on regular basis. This black and white all-Puma outfit from her collection is one of the boldest athleisure outfits we have seen so far.
Selena Gomez proved that you can rock a tracksuit with strappy evening heeled sandals. The best thing is that you can wear the same sandals with your evening dress and everyday wear. The young star’s Vetements tracksuit is definitely not only for the gym.
Just like her older sister Kendall can pull of sporty pants and high heels. The vibrant red track leather pants paired with white heeled boots are a major athleisure statement.
The Instagram star and blogger rocked another Vetements look that can easily blend with the everyday wear on the streets. The highly detailed look is also a major fashion statement that will turn heads whenever you go.
One fashion blogger is getting her own Barbie doll for the first time ever, and it is, of course, the Blonde Salad’s Chiara Ferragni! The Italian (now Los Angeles-based) fashion blogger, It-girl and fashion designer revealed the final product on her Instagram account a few hours ago, sharing her excitement and infinite happiness with us.
“My childhood dreams came true: they created my own Barbie (the one on the right) And @barbiestyle came to visit me in my Beverly Hills house #BarbieStyle #Barbie #TheBlondeSaladNeverStops #NeverEver,” she captioned.
Chiara Ferragni’s look-alike Barbie doll is, of course, seen sporting a leather jacket, a pair of shredded jeans and a gray crop-top, combined with what appears to be a super-mini Chanel purse (how cute one tiny accessory can be!). Her blonde locks got perfectly matched in color and style with her Barbie doll’s hairstyle too, and her mini-me is already ‘hanging around’ with the real Barbie, with everything documented on Instagram too.
“My girl @chiaraferragni is such a doll! Excited to reunite with this true orginial at #nyfw. #barbie #barbiestyle,” captioned Barbie herself.
Chiara Ferragni’s grand total of 6.5 million Instagram fans (Barbie ‘only’ has 1,5 million followers) expressed their excitement through comments as well, as they know having your own Barbie is a big deal, indeed.
The fact that Barbie chose the Italian It-girl as her first-ever fashion blogger mini-me, however, comes as no surprise. Ever since creating her blog and eponymous label (Ferragni is currently busy promoting her brand new FW 2016-17 accessory line), the Blonde Salad has been growing out an empire that took her to be mentioned by Forbes as one of the 30 most successful individuals under 30 in 2015.
Although Chiara Ferragni is the first fashion blogger to get her own Barbie mini-me, she is not the first-ever celebrity to be immortalized as a Barbie doll. Lots of celebrities have had their chance to get transformed into a Barbie over the years, from writers such as J.K. Rowling, to singers such as Beyoncé and Nicky Minaj. The Marilyn Monroe Barbie was released in 1997, the Farrah Fawcett Barbie in 2011, the Audrey Hepburn Barbie in 1998, the ‘70s Cher Barbie in 2007, and the list could go on forever!
Diversity is indeed something Mattel got the time to think about ever since the first Barbie doll was released in 1959, with its iconic dolls being not only transformed into some of the world’s leading and most independent women, but also already coming in three new shapes (tall, petite and curvy).
This is good news indeed not only for the Barbie doll collector enthusiasts, but also for all those children who love playing with Barbie and take the doll as a role model!

Sweet and strong at the same time: that’s how Italian blogger and fashion designer Chiara Ferragni tried to envision the women who are interested in purchasing the newest Chiara Ferragni Shoes fall/winter 2016-17 collection’s pieces, the campaign pictures of which have been finally released along with a super fun video! Ferragni asked model Staz Lindes to join the crew and become the label’s newest brand ambassador, as her eclectic personality perfectly recalls that of the collection.
“I realized that since there is already a lot of me in the collection, so I wanted to add another character in this story. It took some time for me to define the perfect woman to represent the brand, but Staz is a young woman and an unconventional beauty, she can be sweet and strong at the same time, just like the spirit of the collection,” declared Ferragni.
As for the campaign’s settings, namely the Californian desert featuring an abandoned hotel room, it served as a figurative extension for the campaign’s ‘sweet and strong’ motif, as its nostalgic backgrounds and melancholic lights create an appealing contrasting pattern with the strong attitude of the new designs. Ferragni’s omnipresent love for juxtaposing patterns is in fact strong within this latest collection of hers too, and this time around such vibes got particularly infused with strong, spaghetti-western reminiscences.
Following what looks like Ferragni’s own path in life (she was born nearby Milan in 1987 and is now based in Los Angeles), the shoe line combines solid Italian artisanal skills with timeless American motifs, effortlessly balancing such contrasting styles and, at the same time, reinventing some of the designer’s notorious staples.
The Chiara Ferragni Shoes fall 2016 collection, captioned in the social medial with a captivating hashtag #BornToBeWild, is all about classic Western boots, her iconic wink-eye slip-ons, and of course more jocose and cheerful pumps, revamped with glitters and cute patterns.
Styled by Mariaelena Morelli, the art director who chose Lindes’ outfits along with the campaign’s location, and captured by Brianna Capozzi, the campaign also embodies Ferragni’s evolvement from her very first accessory line-ups until now.
More thoughtful and eclectic than ever, her shoe line changed a lot in terms of common styles and attitudes as the years passed by, and will probably keep on reinventing and changing itself within the upcoming seasons. Now that her band is growing steadily, appealing to a broader audience, the designer, traveler and It-girl is planning to introduce new styles, as well as a winter holiday collection that will probably function as a turning point for her career.

Those who have been following fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad since the very beginning surely know three things about her: she likes fashion, she travels a lot, and she absolutely adores Ladurée macarons. Italian, yet Los Angeles-based fashion blogger and designer Chiara Ferragni is now about to add ‘pastry chef’ to her astounding resume, as The Blonde Salad’s partnership with Ladurée for a limited edition ‘sweet’ collection of macaron has been finally made official.
Rumors of a possible partnership between the French luxury sweets maker house and the Italian blogger hit the headlines back in May, leaving all of her fans thrilled and excited (everyone wondered what it could be all about).
By teaming up with the Parisian pastry shop, Ferragni will launch an exclusive macaron box, just in time for the upcoming New York Fashion Week in September. Covered with Ferragni’s signature eye-print and coming in a light blue color, the box will include six special super-sweet pink macarons with a vanilla and strawberry flavor. The retail price tag of each box of macarons is said to be $28.00. Chiara’s macaron collection will first be available only at NYC boutiques, before hitting the worldwide market.
The collaboration is one of the many focal points behind Ladurée’s revolution, which aims at lessening the distances between its longtime devoted customers and the new, younger generation.
“In an age where the consumer can be influenced in an instant, we saw this collaboration as the obvious next step into reaching the new generation,” declared Elisabeth Holder, co-president of Ladurée U.S.
For these reasons, the French sweets maker company is going to launch an e-commerce website for the US customers in September, which coincides with the relaunch of The Blonde Salad as well (the macaron’s box is going to be available on both the websites).
It is, however, not the first time Ladurée joins forces with acclaimed fashion brands and entrepreneurs. Previously, the French giant has teamed up with Emilio Pucci, Lanvin and Marie-Hélène de Taillac.
As for The Blonde Salad’s Chiara Ferragni, the young, fashion businesswoman has been collaborating with many labels so far, such as Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Carpisa and Italia Independent. When she says #theblondesaladneverstops, she actually means that! Chiara can count on over 6.1 million followers on Instagram, who will surely give their opinion on The Blonde Salad x Ladurée collaboration.
September is always a nostalgic month, but thanks to the Chiara Ferragni x Ladurée macarons line, waving summer goodbye will be easier!

Amazon Fashion seems to be going through the roof of late and in the pursuit of attaining its great ambitions in the fashion world the largest Internet-based retailer has recently announced the Italian beauty standing behind Blonde Salad, Chiara Ferragni as the new European ambassador of the brand and hence also the face of its spring 2016 campaign.
It has been a year since Amazon Fashion spread the word about its target to strengthen the presence in the fashion industry up to becoming the best place to buy fashion online and it came as no shock to see the brand taking the plunge and opening a spacious 46,000-square-foot high-tech photo studio in Shoreditch, London with 22 photography bays equipped with cutting-edge facilities. The grand opening was followed by an inspirational promise by the brand to capture and add more than 500,000 images of the clothes to its sites annually. The first ever fashion campaign of the online giant fronted the English model and actress Suki Waterhouse riding high decked into lovely jackets, suede and floral-printed pieces.
Actually this newly-broken-out hectic foray of Amazon into the fashion world is to be interpreted as something pretty much logical granting that the retailer has added more than 100 fashion brands to its platform since 2014 among them being such big names as Tommy Hilfiger, Gucci watches, Emporio Armani, Hugo Boss, Lacoste and Calvin Klein. And equally logical is it to see Amazon Fashion in collaboration with Chiara Ferragni, the Italian blogger standing behind the gee-whiz Blonde Salad and the designer of Chiara Ferragni shoes, a high-profile personality in the fashion arena in terms of both kicking off the fashion-blogging concept across the world and being a constant inspiration for many a fashionista with her countless off-beat looks.
The Amazon Fashion spring 2016 campaign shot by Cass Bird and styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois in the brands’ multi-million photography studio is to bring to our view the stunning Chiara wearing six looks from Gestuz, Selected Femme, Boss Orange, Finders Keepers and Tommy Hilfiger. The looks include an embellished black jumpsuit and tailored mini dresses though for the time being we are enabled to take a peek only at the jumpsuit.
According to Amazon Fashion EU’s brand and creative director Juliet Warkentin they will focus on women’s wear for their strategy this year. “This season builds on our first campaign with Suki Waterhouse,” Warkentin told WWD. “We wanted to work with a strong woman who understands her own style and the power it gives her. Chiara is inspirational to women across Europe and she seemed the perfect fit for us”.
Being known as the crackerjack of working out multiple jazzy looks and sharing them online as pretty inspirational sources for many of us out there, Chiara Ferragni is surely to be a great proponent of online retail. “Nowadays you don’t need to live in a fashion capital of the world, have lots of money or be able to shop during certain hours,” Ferragni said. “With online retail, it’s possible to browse and shop for fashion anytime of the day, from pretty much anywhere.”
The campaign will run in Amazon’s advertising and social media campaigns across Europe in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy and Spain on March 9. What is left to us now is just stick around to be up on several things to occur – taking a closer look at the campaign’s basics, seeing the next influential fashion figure to be tapped by Amazon Fashion and why not also have high hopes to see Chiara’s iconic flirting eye winks on garment pieces, as well.

Remember when Chiara Ferragni just started with her fashion blogging? The Blonde Salad has really climbed up the fashion ladder and made a huge name for herself in the industry, however lucrative it may appear. We can easily say that The Blonde Salad has been a rather big deal for a few years now, so her having her own collection is no big deal. Having someone else as the face of that campaign…. It certainly is huge to us! Blonde and beautiful Lili Sumner is featured in the Chiara Ferragni shoes spring 2016 campaign and we know she is a good fit.
The Italian blogger and fashion designer has been having a rather great time of it all, with a huge following on her social media, particularly her blog and Instagram account. She has been employed by Guess as a model and spokesperson, while also coming out with her first published book. At 28 years old and standing rather tall at 177 cm, the law student has been fully integrated into the world of all things beautiful and there seems to be no end to her creativity or excitement.
She has certainly been enjoying the limelight since she started her fashion blog in October of 2009 and within 2 years was named Blogger of the moment by Teen Vogue and introduced as one of the biggest street style stars of New York through different media. She was still a law student at the time her blog had over a million unique visitors a month. She modelled for Guess in 2013, collaborated with Steve Madden for a 9-piece shoe collection for the spring season of 2014, and has worked on joint projects with Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Max Mara, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, J Brand, and Seven for All Mankind.
Standing at 175 cm tall with dress size of 2, Lili Sumner is a bit too thin for our tastes but somehow matches Ferragni’s style. The Chiara Ferragni collection has generally been about shoes because that is Chiara’s forte, but there is more to it as well. The blogger and designer feels that by allowing another to take her place as the model for the products, there can be bigger and better collaborations and a fresh look on the pieces presented, with new inspirations popping up as you take a step back and check out the whole picture.
The campaign features Sumner in fishnet tights and ‘90s clothing, brightly colored backgrounds and an ode to the Superwoman theme. There are slip on sneakers and block heel ankle boots, glitter lace-up flats with Pop Art slogans, there are stars and fun appliques on the straps and heels. It is a lovely line-up and we are enjoying the teasers. We look forward to seeing the campaign in full soon!

When it comes to fashionable people, particularly the It girls, the way that closet is made up and all the pieces it includes are what make or break the image of the individual. The clothing, the accessories, the shoes and everything in between, from the color coding to the number of cute daywear compared with snazzy or positively sexy evening pieces create an image of the blogger or fashion model that better shows us who the one we are following so attentively on all forms of social media really is. From the tidiness to the understanding of style according to the season, these girls can really teach us a thing or two, and Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad is definitely among them inspiring us so much with her chic and enviable closet!
There are very few people out there who have not heard of Chiara, and most are as far away from fashion as you can imagine. The Italian fashion blogger has gained fame over the years, inspiring us with her outfits. The official page on Instagram has 5.1m followers and features everything from clothing to makeup to lifestyle tips, creating a lovely atmosphere in which to immerse yourself. Now, she gives us a look into that sacred closet of hers, courtesy of Consort Design and in collaboration with California Closets.
That is one chic wardrobe we saw as well! There is just something positively youthful and divine in the way Chiara Ferragni’s closet has been designed, with multiple cubicles, around an open window to allow for a good amount of natural light, with enough slots and hangers for a very neat and beautifully segregated wardrobe compilation. There are 3-4 slots for hats, each with a different purpose to it, a slot for handbags, and multiple shelves with hanging opportunities.
Everything has a white effect to it, a plant placed in the center on the windowsill to add a splash of color, along with the golden topped lamp, while we got to enjoy a very neat creation here. Chiara Ferragni has more shoes than we can count and they are stuffed into her shoe closet, falling around her and in all shapes, colors and sizes. She’s got initialed Louis Vuitton bags in the classic monogram, while the closet itself has been created to be as cozy as possible.
If you want to create a wardrobe space you want to hang out in, Ferragni’s advice is to throw in some Cote Pierre overdyed French throw pillows, adding a vintage feel, rosy accents and a comfortable ambience; adding a pull-out sofa makes your closet into an extra guest space in the house as well. Make sure everything is well organized, which means dividers for jeweled treasures, space enough for all your bags, the right sized cubicles and shelving for your shoes and an interesting display of everything so that it is handy to get to but also stylish in appearance.
The fashion blogger turned shoe designer turned social media diva loves her shoes best though and has so much there isn’t organization enough in this world to give them each a succinct space. Browse through the gallery to see all of the photos of Chiara Ferragni’s chic closet!
