TAKING A SHOT
A lifelong fashion lover, Nyka Alexander headed to Milan fashion week to snap street style. Here’s what she learned
Lesson 1: Outside the Marni show, it was impossible to miss Eva Chen, Instagram’s head of fashion partnerships. Equally clear? This streetstyle star is really nice.
Lesson 2: Serious photographers gear up seriously. Without a puffer or slicker on, I was clearly the only one dabbling in this pursuit.
Lesson 3: Even boldface names pose with regular folk! This fan had a selfie moment with famed fashion journalist Anna Dello Russo.
Lesson 4: Shoes are an important topic of conversation. Model and style star Candela Novembre carefully discussed her footwear choices.
Lesson 5: Streetsyle regulars know they will be photographed from all angles. While I awkwardly stationed myself behind, pro Tamu McPherson crouched in front to get her shot.
Lesson 6: Mixing patterns makes for a compelling street-style shot! Maybe I’m getting the hang of this?
Lesson 7: Be humble. Your best shot may turn out completely out of focus. Also, this was super posed. She stared studiously at her phone until the camera clicking finished.
