Tipping Our Hats to Chiara de Blasio


Bill de Blasio, Chiara de Blasio, Dante de Blasio, and Chirlane McCray

New Year’s Day marked the swearing in of New York’s new mayor, Bill de Blasio. But as we watched the ceremony, it was his individualistic daughter, Chiara, who caught our eyes. While on the campaign trail, Chiara attracted more than her fair share of media attention with her whimsical floral headbands—and on election night, she broke out a bohemian-meets-punk ensemble comprising black and white Dr. Martens-esque creepers and a rouge velvet dress. Yesterday, New York’s first daughter donned a spunky velvet leopard-print Nanette Lepore jacket (her mother, Chirlane McCray, too, wore a look by the designer, opting for her rich-hued Wonderland dress), flat black lace-up boots and—the best part—a noir cone hat that vaguely resembled a wizard’s topper. An unlikely accessory choice? Perhaps. But we love the fact that Chiara has a distinct personal style—and owns it.
