Style Guru Bio: Celia Hubbard

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a passion for fashion! For hours I would force my younger sister to play dress up with me. We would run around in my mom’s high heels and silk slips saying that we were movie stars. At six I started my own fashion line, making clothes out of newspaper and stickers. My business was very successful, however the clothes didn’t exactly last too long. In first grade I was the kid that broke the dress code because I refused to wear anything but jelly sandals, which apparently were not acceptable for P.E. I didn’t care, they were my favorite shoes and I loved them!

Today things are pretty much the same. I love finding the perfect heels or that unique blouse that you know will be a show-stopper. Although my jelly sandals have gone out of style (I am convinced they will make a comeback, just you wait), my love for fashion has not. Writing for CollegeFashionista this past year for Boston University was an amazing opportunity to really search the streets of Boston for the Fashionistas/os that are the diamonds in the rough. Magazines and online blogs are the perfect place to draw inspiration from, but there is nothing like being inspired by someone walking down the street. I was a people watcher before, but now I am truly addicted.

I am so excited to be writing for CollegeFashionista for a fourth semester, especially back in Los Angeles! I am currently a junior studying Film and Television at Boston University in Massachusetts, but I am so excited to get back to my roots and write for UCLA as I spend the semester participating in the BU in LA Spring Abroad Program. I'm originally from Manhattan Beach, so getting used to the preppy east coast style was a quite a challenge. I really can’t wait to photograph the free-spirited and beachy look of the west coast. Watch out Bruins, I have my camera ready!
