STYLE GURU BIO: Michaela Leung

Hello to all of the Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Michaela Leung and I am now a senior at Valdosta State University majoring in mass media and working on a journalism cross-training certificate. This is my fourth semester as a Style Guru and I am so excited to continue showing all of you the fashion on VSU’s campus!

I have always loved fashion. I view fashion as a way of self expression. I tend to lean toward dark colors like black, maroon, olive and gray, but I also love nudes and neutral colors. I absolutely adore anything suede, corduroy or velvet material. Since this is my last year of college I have been expanding my wardrobe to reflect a more mature and professional look. Music is a big part of my life, it influences me in a lot of ways and fashion is no exception! I’m inspired a lot by the ’90s alternative rock scene, particularly the grunge era. I also find fashion inspiration from iconic ’90s shows and movies like Daria, Clueless, My So Called Life and many more!

I believe that everyone should dress the way that they you want to. Dress to showcase your personality, mood and wear what makes you feel comfortable and awesome. First and foremost, fashion is objective. Fashion is for the individual. If someone likes your outfit, that should just be a plus, not the entire goal.

I am so excited to spend another semester showcasing the fashion found here at VSU and I can’t wait to see the fashion captured on other college campuses!
