it girl: Vanessa Traina

2009 August 31

Vanessa Traina is not only the daughter of romance novelist Danielle Steel, but she is also a model/stylist/socialite/fashionista and thus worthy of the “it-girl” title.

This San Francisco native has been a part of the fashion industry since she was a little girl. From attending fashion shows in Paris with her mom and sister Victoria, to always dressing in head to toe designer labels and couture, it’s not surprising that Vanessa has made a name for herself in the fashion industry as well as having a contract with Elite Model Management.

Like most other it-girls, Vanessa keeps a very elitist group of friends. To name a few: Nicole Richie, Mary-Kate Olsen, Jen Brill, Harley Viera-Newton, and Alexander Wang. And of course Vanessa dates the famous skateboardist Chad Muska, since being an it-girl requires an edgy boyfriend.

She now resides in NYC and can often be found on websites like Park Avenue Peerage and Patrick McMullen. However, she can also be found in the party section of almost every Vogue/W issue as well as in all kinds of editorials.

Her style is definitely edgier than most it-girls today and I think that is what makes her stand out. She knows how to combine feminine pieces with rougher looks to create a style that is entirely her own. I’d like to call it a “rough biker chic” but I think it’s more than that. Vanessa continues to emerge with each season and I am excited to see how she will contribute even more to the fashion industry.
