Instagram is home to many stylish women, but Eva Chen always stands out on our feeds. What’s her secret? Read on as we get to the bottom of her social media success!
10 Reasons Why Eva Chen Is The Ultimate #InstaPeg
Eva Chen has always been a trendsetter and taste-maker. She skyrocketed to fashion fame as Editor-in-Chief of the much-missed Lucky magazine. She was the youngest editor-in-chief across all Condé Nast’s titles including Vogue, W, Allure, and other top titles. Now, she’s the director of fashion partnerships for Instagram. So I think it’s safe to say that she knows more than just a thing or two about Instagram! Can you imagine a job that combines fashion, Instagram, and hanging out with fashion’s finest? Then can you imagine how it will give you amazing material for your own social media profiles? Eva Chen sure does! So let’s look through her feed and pick up a few key pointers from our ultimate #InstaPeg.
1. Her captions are always honest
Eva’s caption for this post was: “Five seconds after I took this picture this pristine manicure (Sally Hansen in Blushed Petal) was covered in goopy cheese and tomato sauce.” Let’s be real, in this oversaturated social media landscape we all crave for honesty, especially from influencers and people in the spotlight. And that caption is about as honest as anyone can get!
2. She’s Got A Laid-Back Side
When she’s not dressed to the nines for all the Fashion Week street style photo ops she attends, Eva is just like the rest of us. Who wouldn’t want to go out in a sweat shirt, comfy pants, and sneakers? I think she makes them look ultra-chic!
3. We Can’t Get Enough Of Her Shoe and Bag Shots
In the world of Instagram, Eva Chen is known for her shoe and bag snaps, taken from the back of a car. I can’t even begin to describe how amazed and inspired I feel about these snaps! It’s a simple idea, it’s candid, and it’s highly relatable. But it also showcases Eva’s glamorous life through fashion, trends, and style. It’s exactly what the recipe for social media success calls for!
4. She Hangs Out With The Coolest People
Twinning with former first lady Michelle Obama? No big deal, if you’re Eva Chen. This photo is just radiating #GirlPower and style!
5. We Get An Exclusive Look At The Fashion Biz
One of the main reasons to follow Eva Chen: she’s literally at the center of the fashion industry, and she uses Instagram to share her experiences to the world. Whether it’s exclusive videos live from the runway or snaps of models in the newest collections, your fashionista side will be very happy.
6. She Has Serious Photography Skills
But a good Instagram feed is never complete without a few artsy shots. Eva nails every single one of those as well! Whether it’s the bold colors of flowers or this stunning shot of the purple sky, Eva is a Renaissance woman at her finest!
7. Her Daughter Ren Is A Big Part Of Her Life (And Feed!)
Just like her mother, Ren has got to be one of the most stylish kids on Instagram. I live to see her OOTD shots with Eva!
8. She’s A Working Mom
I admire powerful women everywhere, that’s for sure. And I also admire powerful mothers! While others think that motherhood or femininity is a sign of weakness, I think it takes great strength and compassion to be a mother and career woman. And if there’s one thing Eva Chen’s feed should teach you: it’s that you should never be ashamed of the choices you make in life. She’s a proud mother and a hard-working #GirlBoss, and by sharing it with the world she’s inspiring so many women just like us!
9. Her Mini Conference Room Posts Give Us Life
When Eva Chen works, she does it with a bit of fun and lot of creativity. Facebook’s mini conference room has been featured countless times on her feed, and I’d love to visit someday!
10. She’s Got Serious Style
If you work in the fashion industry, you’ve got to have style. But the best of the best don’t just follow trends, they make them. Eva has her own signature style that shows in every one of her outfits!
