There are more sides to fashion, and many, many more sides to the people in fashion, than meet the collective eye. Beyond the shows and catwalks, we discover people with a myriad of interests and dreams who aren’t just fashionistas, they’re passion-istas.
As befitting the new year, Kelly Misa-Fernandez is a passion-ista that welcomes transformation. She may have started out her career as a model, but she certainly didn’t end there. Over the past years, she gracefully and easily transitions from top model, to beauty columnist, to host (of “Trending Now”), to lifestyle blogger (on her own website) without missing a beat. But her most profound change came with becoming a wife and doting, hands-on mother to adorable baby Tristan, that led to yet another passion-project as part of a threesome (along with good friends, Patty Laurel-Filart and Nicole Hernandez-de los Angeles) on a new web series called “Eat, Drink and Be Married”. Whatever transformation Kelly goes through next, we can always look forward to watching her fly.
