ELENA SANOR, 16, STUDENT, STYLIST AT T! MAGAZINE, ENGLAND
ELENA’S STYLE: I would describe my style as being something of a mixture. I cant really say I follow trends or a particular way of dressing ,I just wear what I like and what I think looks good at that moment even though sometimes later on I think otherwise! . I am trying to refine my style more and find out what suits me and what doesn’t, I am still experimenting. I would say that I wear shorts and tights pretty often so that could count as something of a signature trademark.
INSPIRATION: People , places , other fashion bloggers . without sounding too cliche I would say that a lot of my inspiration comes from other bloggers ,magazines and websites. I am very open to inspiration and I am always willing to try out different things so sometimes my inspiration may come from the most random sources.
FAVORITE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING: I must say denim shorts . I have a few pairs and I wear them throughout the year even when its snowing I will wear them with tights ! I just find them so comfortable and I can move around freely and still feel stylish, I have started to wear more jeans recently ,as I’m sure people are getting sick of me wearing shorts all the time including my mum who always gets annoyed at me wearing the same thing!
PERSONAL STYLE EVOLUTION: I think that it has evolved a huge amount as in these past few years as I have also evolved a lot and I am hardly the same person I was ! I like to think I have become more fashion conscious and aware of what looks good . I used to draw a lot of my inspiration from catwalk shows when I was younger therefore I ended up wearing rather un- streetwise outfits! I remember buying a down to the knee brown embroidered coat which I thought was “hippie chic” at the time now I realize it was just a huge mistake. Starting a blog is something I highly recommend for anyone who wants to improve their style it has changed mine a lot.
HALLOWEEN: I dressed up as “The lady of Shalott” inspired by a beautiful Pre- Raphaelite painting, all the details are on my blog!
FALL FAVORITES: Layers. You can do so much with them and mix different styles, colours and textures, also who doesn’t enjoy wearing a huge knitted jumper.

Digital Media Analyst at NARS Cosmetics
“Thanks to my job, I’ve never looked better.”
Sara Zucker gets to play with makeup all day. As NARS’ Digital Media Analyst, she’s also involved with the company’s online media outreach, content production, strategy and analysis, but the important part is that she gets to play with makeup all day. The gig’s a bit of a curve ball for Sara considering she got her Masters in Library Science, but when you factor in the popularity of her personal fashion blog, her day job makes total sense. How’d she go from libraries to lipstick? Good, old-fashioned networking.
Let’s talk about college. I went to undergrad at the University of Connecticut (double major in English and History) and grad school at Queens College (Masters in Library Science, Certification in Archives, Preservation and Records Management). I initially entered college as a vocal performance major; my grades were crap, but I had been performing for years and wanted to make all of those many dollars spent on voice lessons worth it for my parents. After realizing that I really had two career options in music—to be a performer or an educator—I decided “the hell with it” and switched to a major where I could just read books all day. For some reason, that seemed like a more lucrative plan.
In an effort to hone my writing skills, I interned in the Public Relations offices of multiple schools within the university and after a brief stint in Ad Sales, I enrolled in grad school to become an archivist because, I mean, old books are cool as hell.
What was your first job? I had spent one summer interning in the Ad Sales department at DNR (a now defunct business-to-business men’s fashion magazine), so when I was offered a job doing something similar at the New York Observer the day before I graduated from UConn, it didn’t seem like a terrible idea. Sales could be cool, right? No. I won’t go too in-depth about the level of misery I experienced because Jared Kushner is the bomb, but let’s just say that I happily entered grad school after five measly months.
What about your worst job? Please read previous answer.
What’s your dream job? It would be absolutely disgusting if I said that I am currently doing my “dream job,” but I am. I play with makeup every day, interact directly with my brand’s ideal consumer, create a voice across all digital platforms that isn’t too far off from my own and brainstorm future projects online. I don’t know what isn’t awesome about that.
A job you would never want? To be anyone’s assistant.
So, how did you get this job? At the time, I had a 6-month contract to be Glamour’s Community Manager, an experimental position created by Conde Nast. Though I didn’t put two and two together at the time because I am incredibly naive, when the contract ended, so did my time at the magazine.
So I was out of a job and emailed just about every friend I could think of to be all “Hey! Haven’t seen you in so long—let’s get drankz! Miss you. Also, I’m unemployed.” [Special Projects Director at Conde Nast] Eva Chen sent me this job description from NARS and told me to ignore the title as it was actually a social media position. [Glamour’s Fashion Development Director] Susan Cernek put in a lovely and unnecessary (but so lovely) recommendation, and I was able to get an interview the day that I applied. My soon-to-be-boss and I grabbed a cocktail and, despite my unpreparedly wearing moccasins and jeggings because I had no idea that I would get an interview, she saw something in me… enough to extend a job offer a few days later.
