“I love when someone is fearless enough to make something her own- and I think women in NY embody that ideal. Getting dressed and not giving a f-k about anyone but yourself and what makes you feel good.” Bright, bold, pull-no-punches girl talk from designer, mother, python lover and Luxer, Gelareh Mizrahi. Her playful bags and accessories are flying off Barney’s shelves, selling out and can be seen worn by the likes of media mavens like Eva Chen to social media power players Taylor Swift and Emma Roberts. Believe us when we tell you that Mizrahi’s words, “Confidence is the ultimate luxury,” is today and will likely, forever go down as a number one fave. Want to talk confidence? Mizrahi was 8-months pregnant when we photographed her and she didn’t miss a beat with legs-for-days on display while laughing and shimmying her bad-ass self as the lens captured her personal and professional glow.
While her closet on VL goes in and out of a holding pattern to accommodate her busy lifestyle and travel schedule, there’s no shortage of being an avid Luxer, both renter and lender, “ I love the access to incredible clothes and accessories. Stuff that’s sold out and hard to get. It’s the best of the best… like shopping at the ultimate little boutique where the most amazing pieces from every collection has been hand picked and put away for you.” We have to wrap up with this last favorite mention of the black shearling Acne Mizrahi is most coveting on the site with her ode to awesomeness, “the black shearling Acne jacket that I’ve been lusting for since the first second I saw it. I would wear that jacket in the sweltering heat with nothing but a bikini. I’m fully obsessed.” And, so are we. Xx
