Chronicles of a Fashion Intern: Editor Encounters

Hello, My name is "Intern"


In life, there are two types of memorable interactions...the really great interactions and the...well...not so smooth interactions. I learned this very quickly the past couple of weeks when I had a close encounter with one of fashion's biggest names: Zanna Roberts Rossi, Marie Claire's Senior Fashion Editor, Stylist and E! News Contributor.

During this internship I constantly prepared myself with imaginary scenarios of how I would introduce myself to the Marie Claire editors. I'd bump into them in the kitchen. Use my charm to complement their outfit and tell them how much I admire their work. They would then invite me out for some coffee to chat about their incredible career. We would become so close that they would then take me under their wing and hire me as their fashion protégé. But that's not really how things work in the fashion world.

Brace yourselves, this is going to be an eventful story. So now I present to you... my very first encounter...
