Fashion Icon: Michelle Harper- semi-famous for no reason

“She has made herself into a kind of ambulatory work of art,” “The best thing about her is that she looks like she’s living in her own world, like she’s always going to the Oscars,” “Michelle’s wardrobe would make any woman (and their man) weep,” that’s how Michelle Harper is characterized

Yet who is Michelle Harper? And why do so many people suddenly find themselves fascinated by this 35-year-old businesswoman and brand consultant?

Michelle Harper is an eccentric and modish figure whose image over the last several years has seemed to be everywhere, in both real life and, possibly more important, in the parallel universe that is the Web.

Today, Harper is best known for her fantastical dressing habits, which have been well-documented at fashion events around the globe and her outlandish outfits have made her a muse of the street style boom.

Very little information are known about her like she is 35 years old and she grew up in New York, in Colombia, and then in Switzerland, and in France, and in Italy, practically everywhere.

I guess this demonstrates the benefit of being raised in Manhattan and attending only quality private schools, including the elite all-girls Spence School on the Upper West Side.

The truth is that she’s not famous enough to have a Wikipedia page devoted to her, but she’s “now considered one of the top 10 ‘gets’ at all the events”.

So, what exactly is her job?

In 2005, after spending a few years working for her mother’s firm, she co-founded her own cosmetics holding company, CB LLC, with her business partner Darac. Harper also does brand consulting for cosmetic businesses, but declines to name any of her clients due to nondisclosure contracts; she also has a fragrance project in the works.

Everything about her is a mystery, but “the reality is, she was made to be photographed”.
