YOU ARE A BABE
CHELSEA ZALOPANY, T MAGAZINE
"I grew up a book worm, scribbling little poems and stories in notebooks, but always assumed I was going to be a ballet dancer. When that didn't work out, I had to figure out what I wanted to do with my life [laughs]. While studying English and Women's Studies in school, I was lucky enough to meet Sally Singer. I interned for her at Vogue and was blown away by her approach to fashion journalism. I've never felt more inspired. Working in fashion news and features you learn so much because you are talking about fashion constantly on so many levels – understanding the most intricate details and why they are important. Plus, I am meeting young designers and new creative people all the time, and how fun is that. What I do now at T Magazine is helping to create the front of book fashion – which embodies everything from creating ideas to seeing them through to the pages of T. At the New York Times and T, it's sort of amazing because it's not just industry people reading the features – we have such a broach reach and scope. Sally is brilliant at showing people's natural beauty at home and in their life. And it's a brilliant thing to be a part of."
