STYLE GURU BIO: Christy Lara

Hi fellow Fashionistas! My name is Christy; I am 22 years old and a senior at Full Sail University. I absolutely love everything beauty and fashion. There is nothing like putting together the perfect outfit or finding an amazing mascara. These simple pleasures are what us girls live for.

My very first job was at one of my favorite stores: Forever 21, and I will never forget it. Since then I have worked at multiple boutiques and clothing/accessory stores. I just love helping others find the perfect piece to complete their look. My love for fashion started at a very young age. As far back as I can remember, I would always spend hours putting together cute outfits and matching all my accessories. Of course, I had to show off all my hard work, so many of my childhood pictures show me striking a pose. Whenever someone pulled a camera out, I was the first one ready to say cheese. Luckily, all of that practice has been put to good use, and I have been blessed to be a part of the modeling industry. Right after I graduated high school, I got signed with the Campbell Agency in Dallas, Texas. The industry is tough, but it can be very rewarding, especially if you love it as much as I do. I think it is so cool to be able to experience both sides of the fashion business. Photography has always been a passion of mine; I thrive both in front of and behind the camera. Being able to combine fashion, beauty and photography is truly a dream come true.
