Throughout December, we’ll be shining a light on your festive style. Here’s how Vogue Club member Kayla Stern is spending the season—and what she’s gifting to her closest friends…
1. What is your favorite festive ritual?
Visiting Christmas markets—there is nothing better than walking around with a cup of mulled wine in one hand and a gingerbread cookie in the other—and taking in Christmas lights. I’m currently studying abroad in Florence and am excited to see the markets in Italy, France, England, and Spain.
2. What’s the perfect gift to surprise your closest friend?
A subscription to BoxyCharm—you can customize the membership so they receive new beauty products to try every month.
3. What’s the best gift you have received in recent years?
The Gucci GG Matelassé Mini Bag in black leather—it’s so versatile: You can take it with you from a day walking through the park to a night out on the town. One item on my wish list for this holiday season: The Chanel Chance perfume—I think it’s going to be my new signature scent!
4. It’s not the festive season without a glamorous party: What item of clothing (or accessory) is sure to make you stand out from the crowd?
My statement piece for the season is the Jimmy Choo Celeste black crystal logo clutch. The large clasp and gold frame is so fun, and you can add (or remove) the chain shoulder strap.
5. Lastly, what’s the one beauty item that speaks to your holiday season allure?
Any holiday look is not complete without a little glitter! I’m also currently obsessing over the Dior skincare line—I love washing my face with the Dior La Mousse Off/On cleansing mousse, and I’ve been finishing off every look with the Dior Forever Luminizers highlighting power, which adds a subtle shine to your glam!
