A glimpse of modern fashion that taps audiences of all ages. This fashion blogger breathes fashion in all corners of her Instagram feed. Her well-curated feed is not only colorful but very, very tastefully done. Her fashion sense is all over her even when she was still working in the corporate world. You would be surprised when this influencer revealed in an interview that she used to work as a banking executive, an FBI intelligence analyst and has also worked for the immigration under national security.
After following these fashion influencers and their Instagram activities, we have noticed their one common denominator. They are not just icons in fashion, beauty and travel, they are all role models for the youth. Not only have they become aspirational because of how they carry themselves on social media, but also an inspiration for everyone to be someone who is more than just a pretty face. These influencers have shown their different sides as a friend, a daughter, a mother and a wife – an empowered woman.
