Style Spotlight: Barbara Palvin
Written by Camille Bavera
Hungarian beauty Barbara Palvin, whose personality is as bright as the iconic lipstick ala sixteen candles in her beauty and portrait shots somehow always in my Instagram feed, is probably just as famous for her love life and street style as her angelic runway appearances and sports illustrated cover.
January was a trial of sorts – Veganuary, dry January, completely alter your lifestyle-uary – a trial month in which we were tasked with subscribing to a new, better version of ourselves. What Palvin has made apparent in her own life, which is perhaps much healthier, is focusing on reinstating our self-confidence through our clothes and attitude while having fun doing so. Your streets are your runway and your social media is your magazine. Take some cues from her style – the Euro-centricity, the mini skirt, the power suit – and think how you can translate your personality more aesthetically, more visually.
The power suit:
The Femme Flair:
Jeans so tight they show all your assets with nowhere to hide they’ve become a daring pant to wear. Let that not deter you! They are an evident staple in Palvin’s streetwear closet (as she no doubt has several) while she lobbies for body positivity in her career and manages to stay away from the too common body image pressures in the modeling industry, staying beautiful, and maintaining a lucrative career. In short – wear what makes you feel like you.
2021 was a make or break year for a lot of celebrity couples, but whether or not they made it to the new year, their style lives on.
