Insta-inspired

Watch these girls celebrate their femininity… Ladies, it’s time for some insta-fashion!

Every morning I wake up and have a far too long look at my closet, figuring out what to wear Probably something every woman recognizes, but my outfit starts with selecting my lingerie. Deciding whether I go push up, balcony or a corset is the first question that needs to be answered, and the rest of the outfit will follow.

I feel personal style says it all, and maybe not everyone agrees with mine, but fashion is a way to express who I am. It gives me a private stage to where I can showcase my unique self.

Take a look at these Instagram pictures on which other women show off their sense of style and identity combining it with my designs, and get insta-inspired!

Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”

Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”

The art of love!
