Monday Muse

As I write this, Suddenly I See is playing, and the words "a million girls would kill for this job" echo through my mind.  That assumption of Emily's onscreen in The Devil Wears Prada is certainly true of this week's muse, Amy Astley.

Before Astley landed her dream job as Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue, she was training to become a professional ballerina. She started out at House and Garden before transferring to Vogue then settling where she is today. Huge achievements, but perhaps what Amy is most proud of is establishing Teen Vogue's Fashion U, along with their CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) scholarship nurturing young talent.

When I was young my aunt used to send me magazines in the mail regularly which sparked my interest in them, and ever since I've remained extremely mesmerised. To be doing what Amy does for Teen Vogue would be an absolute dream. Hopefully I will one day be writing for Conde Nast!
