Stylish, beautiful and well connected - it's no wonder's fashion director Leila Yavari has over 28,000 Instagram followers and is signed to Next Management. As well as a seriously great gig as fashion director for one of the world's best luxury e-tailers, the stunning fashion buyer scores amazing access to some of the world's best runway shows and casually hangs with the likes of Elena Perminova, Lily Donaldson and Julia Restoin Roitfeld - as you do. While the Iranian-born former model is based in New York, she travels the globe regularly as a purveyor of all things stylish and naturally boasts a wardrobe brimming with McQueen dresses, Céline and Rochas shoes, plus every Chloé and Fendi handbag worth its cult following. Put simply - Leila Yavari is a girl we wouldn't mind swapping lives with.
