Style Blogger Ophelia Horton Takes On The Fashion World...After Her History Homework

Style Blogger Ophelia Horton Takes On The Fashion World...After Her History Homework

In this week’s issue of Grazia, we talked to style-blogger Ophelia Horton, a 13 year-old from south London who is, arguably, the future of fashion journalism.

Inspired by Topshop, Marni Spring/Summer 2012 and the indomitable Tavi Gevenson - style-rookie and front row darling, darling – Ophelia started her blog, Who’s That Girl, two years ago. She’s since snuck into two LFW shows, turned her dad’s shirt into a Miu Miu-esque collar (with a little help from Google Images and a pair of scissors) and successfully pulled off Creepers even though she’s two generations too young for them.

Impressive? Without doubt, although it does beg the question – should a 13-year-old be blogging about Erdem or swapping stickers with her BFFs?

Having spoken to both Ophelia and her mother (who claims to be decidedly unfashionable) I can vouch for Ophelia’s fashion-patter: she talks fluently about trends, is self-taught and really, truly, knows her stuff. She also ‘plays safe’ on the internet (just ask her Dad who repeatedly checks her computer)

Exactly how the notion of ‘channelling Marni’ entered the lexicon of a pre-teen will continue to beggar belief, but the important thing is this: she’s up to date on her year 7 revision. So parents, sleep easy.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    Ford plants a new Mustang on the Empire State Building in style

    Fifty years ago this week, Ford made history by staging the greatest car launch in history — building up the drama around its new Mustang with stunts like papering over dealership windows and landing on the covers of both Time and Newsweek magazine. To celebrate its anniversary, Ford re-created a stunt it last pulled off in 1965 — landing a new Mustang on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.
