NOT SO PETITE: Ella Catliff is one of the biggest fashion bloggers in the world, thanks to her chic style blog, Instagram-perfect lifestyle and collaborations with some of the biggest fashion houses in the world. Whether she’s discussing Kim and Kanye for Balmain, showing us how to wear a cape or reviewing the latest lipsticks, Ella has proven she’s hugely popular with both her blog readers (in 100 countries worldwide) and fashion industry insiders.
LA PARISIENNE: Ella launched La Petite Anglaise in 2010 when she hopped on the Eurostar to intern in Paris. Her Mum had spotted the likes of Susie Bubble and Tavi Gevinson making a name for themselves online, and suggested her daughter did the same. Lucky she did, as Ella is now one of the biggest names in blogging, featuring in top fashion magazines and newspapers – we named her one of the 20 to watch in 2014, and we were right. Even before she graduated from Central Saint Martins with a 1st class degree in Fashion History and Theory, Ella was blowing up.
COVER GIRL: Ella’s background is in fashion media, and internships in Paris and at Alexander McQueen, led to jobs as a social media consultant, editor, stylist and freelance journalist. As her page views crept into the tens of thousands, Ella has moved from behind the scenes to in front of the camera, working with some of fashion’s biggest brands, including Valentino, Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Mulberry.
READY FOR HER CLOSE UP: Making the move from print to film, Ella launched her YouTube channel six months ago, starting out with designer interviews and getting ready for awards ceremonies. With the backing of her modelling agency, Storm, Ella’s videos look set to get behind the scenes of the glossy industry. She also is an advisor to the British Fashion Council, and a judge at fashion talent competitions worldwide.
