Eleonora Carisi is arguably the most photographed woman in the fashion industry and best known for her unconventional style. She combines retro-feminine pieces and bold interjections of colour, with bizarre prints and stalwart tattoos to produce a defiant and inimitable style. But, she’s not just another fashion darling, Eleonara also runs JouJouVilleroy - one of Italy’s most read fashion blogs, she’s the proprietor of YouStore boutique in Turin and can photograph street stylers like the best of them.
