Chiara Ferragni Net Worth, Money & More
NET WORTH: $10 MILLION
CAREER: FASHION BLOGGER
Chiara Ferragni is an Italian blogger, fashion savvy, social media influencer and brand ambassadress. She was born on May 7, 1987 and rose to fame when she created her blog, The Blonde Salad, in 2009. Now she’s graced the covers of different prestigious magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and many others.
Ferragni entered the fashion blogging world in 2009, and in less than two years, she was introduced as ”one of the biggest breakout street-style stars of the year” by New York. That same year, Teen Vogue profiled her as the Blogger of the Moment. These exposures has brought her blog a staggering million visitors! More and more people got interested in her style and soon, visitors were flooding her blog. And as expected, come 2013, she’s already a force to be reckoned with several blogger of the year recognitions. By this time, her blog is also a strong site in the web already with 1.6 million followers on Instagram. The following year, this number doubled to 2.9 million followers which totally solidified her popularity.
As her name got bigger and bigger, the bigger the brands that sought after her got too. She has modelled for Guess, collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger and Max Mara, and has partnered with even bigger fashion brands like Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
Ferragni is now considered as one of the most influential figures in the fashion industry, especially now that she has her own shoe line, the Chiara Ferragni Collection. She started the line in the fall of 2010 along with Lorenzo Barindelli and Paolo Barletta. The designs are really quirky and girly complete with glitters, sparkles, emojis, kisses and flirty eyes. In 2014, reports say that 70 percent of Chiara’s £5 million revenue was brought by the shoe line. Pretty impressive, right?
Los Angeles House
Ms. Ferragni bought a house in LA and is set to move there this month as announced in her Instagram post. She’s obviously making some serious money and we agree that it’s wise to buy properties in places you frequent, it’s more convenient and practical that way. So let’s take a look at the famous blogger’s house which she designed herself.
So that is her dining area. Nice blend of colors and has great lighting, don’t you agree?
This is her office. It’s safe to say this is where she does all the blogging and the planning.
And her bedroom. It’s quite minimalistic but very elegant and lady-like.
AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS:
Chiarra Ferragni has bagged a lot of awards including Newcomer Blogger of the Year during Bloglovin’ Awards in 2011, Blogger Business of the Year in 2012 during the same award show. In 2012, 2013 and 2014, she consistently bagged the Blogger of the Year award during the Bloglovin’ Awards and was named the Best Personal Style Blog in 2014 as well.
In 2013, she didn’t compete against other bloggers for the Blogger of the Year Award in the Stylight Fashion Blogger Awards because she’s the one who hosted the event and announced the winner.
April last year, she graced the cover of Vogue España and became the first first fashion blogger to appear on any Vogue cover ever. Her achievements didn’t end there, because on that same year, she launched her Chiara Ferragni Collection shoe line and became the first subject of a case study at Harvard Business School. Ferragni ended the year with another win of Blogger of the Year award at the Bloglovin’ Awards.
According to Yahoo, this 28 year-old multi-millionaire blogger is now raking in $80,000 a month from affiliate sales alone, and a whopping $8 million a year. A year! And that’s predicted to get even bigger.
So for those of you who wanna try out fashion blogging, we say you give it a shot. You might just get lucky and be the next Ferragni, but we doubt somebody we’ll dethrone her anytime soon.
