Gala Darling      

Creator of Fashion Website "Gala Darling"

Gala Darling's unrelenting devotion to positivity and magic has earned her a cult celebrity status and rabid fans all over the globe, from India to Sweden.

From the massive number of hits her website garners on a monthly basis to her legendary Things I Love Thursday lists, this writer, nomad and international playgirl easily transfers her enthusiasm for life into the written word. Described in the New York Times as "a Web-tethered gadabout," she was recently named one of the 10 most influential style bloggers in the world (Fashionista). She has been described as "a tattooed Miss Manners" (The Bargain Queen), a "downtown Carrie Bradshaw" (Elle) and a "New York City society gal" (Filament). Celebrity stylist and icon Rachel Zoe says Gala and her site are "tres chic."

Gala has been featured prominently in The New York Times, New Zealand Herald, Teen Vogue, New York Post, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Time Out New York, Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, Next, Cleo, Girlfriend, The Age, Sunday Herald Sun, The Dominion Post, Inked magazine, Glasgow Guardian and on CBS and ABC News, among (many) others.

Gala is an accomplished & enthusiastic public speaker, having spoken to audiences of thousands at South By South West Interactive & Evolving Influence, and is frequently invited to make guest appearances on specialty panels about fashion and the internet. Her radical self love workshops are a runaway success. She has spoken to many audiences about entrepreneurship and making business out of the arts.

Gala believes in pink lingerie, sequins, stardust and candy-coloured Cadillacs. She believes in making mischief and the triumph of magic over the brute. She believes in short skirts and lip gloss and bringing about the radical self love revolution. She believes life doesn't have to be serious, that you create your own reality and that beauty is all around us.
