Ashleigh: Describe your style.
Naty Michele: I like to be versatile with my looks so I'm always trying to switch it up. My style is very chic, feminine, classy, flirty & edgy. For the most part I keep up with the latest trends, but only if it's something that I am comfortable wearing. I'm open minded and like to try different things, but if it doesn't fit my own personal style, then I won't wear it just because it's on trend. I kind of just like to do my own thing.
Ashleigh: Who is your style icon?
Naty Michele: Right now it's Kourtney Kardashian. She's extremely fashionable and I really love her outfits. Many of them I can see myself wearing. I relate to her on that level. But I get inspired by so many different people, both celebrity and non celeb.
Ashleigh: Do you think style is important? Why?
Naty Michele: I do. Having your own personal style is what makes you YOU and is what sets you apart from everyone else. It's not just about the clothes you wear, but how you wear them and how you are representing yourself.
Naty Michele: Try to get some inspiration from different people, whether it's a celebrity, fashion blogger, a friend, or someone you see walking down the street. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Take a few risks and try some trends. Start getting a feel for what you like and what you're comfortable in. It took me a while to finally find myself in terms of style. Looking back I definitely made some fashion don'ts, (lol), but that's all part of the process! Most importantly, just stay true to yourself. Make sure the clothes you wear reflect who you are as an individual.
Ashleigh: Who is your favorite designer?
Naty Michele: It's so hard to pick just one! I love many and for different reasons. Some of them are Christian Dior, YSL, Alexander McQueen, Zac Posen, Stella McCartney, and the list goes on!
Ashleigh: Where are your favorite places to shop?
Naty Michele: I like to shop everywhere but the 3 places I shop at the most are H&M, Zara, and Forever21. I also love boutiques and thrift shops. I've found some amazing jewelry pieces from local thrift stores.
Ashleigh: Name one fashion trend you hate.
Naty Michele: There isn't really any that I hate, but I'm not a huge fan of mixing prints. I haven't tried it yet, but I just feel like it's not really my thing. Some people pull it off well though.
Ashleigh: When you meet the opposite sex, what is the first thing you notice about them?
Naty Michele: Their eyes.
Ashleigh: What look/style do you like best for guys?
Naty Michele: I love the way Ryan Gosling dresses. So if they dress like him then that's a plus. :)
