Fashion speaks volumes, and Gabrielle Gorman’s wardrobe would love you to know that equipment are the place the magic occurs. Just like her sustainable model icon twin sister Amanda Gorman, Gabrielle has a vibrant eye for vogue, which earned her a place as a digital advertising intern at TOMS in the summertime of 2019. Beyond advertising vogue content material and exercising a skilled eye behind the digicam, the 22-year-old filmmaker and activist has modeled for sustainable vogue manufacturers, together with Fair Season, Selkie, Love Faustine, and Mussecco, the place she sourced a black and white houndstooth jacket for her YouTube character Bell Parks. But her true vogue experience lies in her on a regular basis outfits that mirror her moods and keenness for expressing herself by way of artwork.
A filmmaker at coronary heart, Gabrielle stated her first need was to be a designer. “That was for the first, I don’t know, 12 years of my life, I totally thought I was going to be a fashion designer, which isn’t to say that’s not going to happen,” she instructed POPSUGAR. “I would love to do that. But yeah, it was the first way that I felt I was able to express myself. I was really quiet and shy as a child, so I did love to play with lots of colors and just different themes and styles, and I try not to regulate myself and just go for what works.”
“I could be wearing a T-shirt and some leggings, but you have a good pair of sunglasses, and you’re all good.”
Today, Gabrielle’s model leans extra towards the monochromatic, a behavior her sister is making an attempt to assist her drop. “[Amanda] mostly just tells me to wear brighter colors,” Gabrielle stated. “She’s always telling me that I own too much black. Black is my favorite color and yellow is her favorite color. She’s always kind of giving me clothes with more color, and I’ll be honest, she has a point there. I think we both look very good in yellow and purples . . . I don’t want to give her style advice as much as advice on how to organize her closet. When she moved, I went up in there and organized her whole place, her whole closet.”
In highschool, Gabrielle says she “would dress like I would say Olivia Pope from Scandal, come in with my jumpsuit and have my heels on and everything and then I got to college, I was like, ‘This is not going to work.'” Now, she takes a extra laid-back strategy to vogue, channeling her creativity by way of eye-catching equipment like slim cat-eye sun shades, bucket hats, assertion earrings, and ’80s colorblock sneakers.
“[My mom] wouldn’t let me leave the house without wearing earrings,” Gabrielle stated, commenting on considered one of her favourite equipment. During her sophomore 12 months of highschool, she purchased her first pair of hoops and have become “obsessed with super extreme and exaggerated earrings. I kind of treat them like hair sometimes. I’ll oftentimes be playing with them and if I just feel like being dramatic on a FaceTime or something, you’ll often see me messing around with my earrings . . . It’s also fun when I FaceTime friends to just be wearing sunglasses when I’m inside, outside, and see them laugh the minute I answer the phone . . . I could be wearing a T-shirt and some leggings, but you have a good pair of sunglasses, and you’re all good.”
An aspiring Chanel ambassador, Gabrielle continues to experiment along with her model every day and hopes to make her mark on the style business sooner or later. “I love also just seeing people challenge gender roles and gender stereotypes in fashion and that’s something I’m learning to do more of. I’m a very feminine person, I would say, if not hyper-feminine, but also I love wearing sweats, big T-shirts, a hoodie,” she stated. Gabrielle added that she would even contemplate beginning a hoodie line of her personal sometime. Until then, considered one of her favourite vogue staples is a fluffy FILA hoodie from Costco. “It’s like getting a hug all day.” See a few of her finest Instagram model moments forward.
