Even if you don’t remember Sarah Ellen’s name, you’ve probably seen her before. Whether it’s from the eyebrow dance YouTube viral video in 2011, as Madison on Neighbours, in a Bonds ad or in MBFW best-dressed galleries, chances are you remember her face. And what a face it is — one that’s helped her amass more than 900,000 followers on Instagram. Combine her stunning looks with her effortlessly cool style choices and great eye for curating content and it’s no surprise she’s become a bonafide Aussie IT girl.

These days, the 20-year-old has many titles to her name: Model, influencer, Westfield ambassador and Creative Director of her blog, Perks Of Her. We’d like to add one more to that list: trendsetter. Whether it’s baker boy caps or high-waisted mom jeans, Sarah Ellen is one of those cool girls who can make us want to buy anything. That’s why we wanted to sit down with her to find out what makes her tick (and get the scoop on her current fashion faves). Read on to find out more about our ultimate style crush, Sarah Ellen.
