Amber Fillerup Clark has always been a few steps ahead of the influencer curve. She didn’t start out to be a content provider — her original site, created in 2010, was a vehicle to update people back home in Utah while she volunteered at an orphanage in Fiji.
Upon her return, she started blogging about fashion and style — especially hair — under the handle Barefoot Blonde. Her big break was a sponsored campaign with Tresemmé that put her on the list of some of the most sought after influencers. She now has a following exceeding 1.3 million on her personal Instagram account (@amberfillerup), nearly 100,000 on her brand’s Instagram (@barefootblondehair), 16 million-plus views on YouTube and is widely considered the “Queen of Instagrammable Hair.”
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
Meet Flamingo. The direct-to-consumer brand is Harry’s first foray into products designed specifically for women. The line goes beyond shaving, venturing into a space that is typically relegated to darker corners of the drugstore — at-home waxing. #wwdbeauty
