Nice to meet you, I’m Ariane!
When Marina first asked me to be her stylist, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity of a lifetime. I welcomed the challenge, jumped in feet first, and I’ve now been managing Marina Bastarache’s image for nearly four years.
I plan and conceptualize all of her outfits (with a few exceptions), whether it’s for photo shoots, her two YouTube channels PO&Marina and Marina Bastarache, TV or media event appearances, or on red carpets (phew, just reading this list has left me short of breath!). Clearly, Marina’s always on the go, which is why she decided to delegate this important part of her career to a stylist. Every day, we work closely together to ensure that the chosen outfits reflect the right image.
Since day one, my mission has first and foremost been to make sure that Marina stands out from the crowd. We’ve developed a style that’s entirely her own, and it’s now very important to always follow this guideline that’s closely based on her taste, personality, and silhouette. Every outfit is carefully thought out.
Marina is crazy about textures and clothes with a punch. She wholeheartedly embraces her curves and her femininity. You’ll therefore see her wearing ultra-feminine, stylish, and fun outfits that reflect her personality. Comfort is also an element that she prioritizes.
What should you know about Marina’s fashion inspirations?
Her style is classic, with an element of fantasy mixed in. She admires the boldness of Bella Hadid and Rita Ora, and especially loves the femininity and elegance of Blake Lively.
What are my top fashion destinations for dressing Marina? Zara, Topshop, Simons, Urban Outfitters, and H&M. In terms of online shopping, we also find great stuff on ASOS, Vestiaire Collective, and Shopbop. But I’m not going to reveal all of our secrets in the very first article, so you’ll have to stay tuned for more inside scoop!
Before I wrap up this post, you must be wondering what it’s like to work with her, right? Well… it’s the worst. Kidding! Marina is a stylist’s dream. She’s extremely open-minded and fully trusts my work, which makes my job “easier” and so much more enjoyable. I have fun creating looks that will turn heads and get people talking… but who knew they’d make people talk this much?
