How to become an Instagram-roalty: Chiara Ferragni’s recipe
Chiara’s rise to international fame began not with Instagram. The Italian student started to post her looks to Lookbook.nu – platform which created a lot of influencers. The next logical step was stand-alone blog (remember those?) But Instagram catapulted Chiara to international stardom. She appears as a guest judge at US “Project Runway” and collaborates with every beauty and fashion brand you can think of. Lancome even introduced Chiara Farragni’s make up collection. Chiara has her own fashion line and a Barbie doll modeled after her. 17 million followers on Instagram give you endless possibilities. How she achieved all of it?
Chiara began her career as a fashion blogger. Her rivals were focusing on creating unique, over the top looks, Chiara was showing off her effortless style. Her looks were down to earth and easy to copy.
Chiara doesn’t make her follower wait for content. She posts often to keep her audience engaged.
