Last weekend BeautyCon came to NYC! If you aren’t familiar with BeautyCon, it’s a fashion and beauty summit for the internet’s most influential beauty and fashion icons and their ever-growing number of fans. This was its 3rd year and was previously hosted in LA & London. Hundreds of content creators and celebs came together to network, mingle, talk industry news, discuss the future of online media, and participate in panel discussions and Q&A’s. The BeautyCon Summit is presented by ELLE magazine and was held at Pier36.
The Guest List of speakers was impressive but I was most excited about seeing & hearing Whitney Port.
Whitney Port may have started out on reality TV but she is a huge influence in the Beauty, Fashion & Writing world and is an inspiration to many of us. At BeautyCon she participated in the The Rise of Digital Influence panel along with other powerhouses such as Joe Zee, Kandee Johnson & Fluer Westaway to name a few.
Whitney discussed everything from her branding, to her clothing line, her past & possible future with reality TV and the industry in general. She was so down to earth and had some really good advice for the audience. I also love that she constantly speaks about how thankful she is for the people who support her work.
