In the 1980’s and 1990’s, VJs were all the rage and influenced the music we listened to, the videos we loved and the fashions we wore. In the States, the VJ is virtually non-existent, but in the UK, they are still thriving. Jameela Jamil is one of its newest for Freshly Squeezed and T4 with pin-up girl looks and loads of style.
The British beauty (by way of Bangladesh) has an interesting and very inspirational story, having been struck by a car at the age of 17 that left her paralyzed for more than a year. She triumphed and ignored the doctors’ warnings about never walking again, going on to become a teacher. She landed her television gig at T4 after applying while teaching and her infectious personality, good looks and amazing life story got her the position.
Jameela mixes retro-inspired femininity with London punk in an effortlessly cool way. She is often seen in form-fitting dresses on the red carpet, but wears denim cut-offs and combat boots just as easily. Her rounded bangs and red lipstick are her signatures, helping her to stand out in a crowd though her 5’10” frame does that as well. Jameela wears every brand from D&G to Forever21 and it is her mix of high and low that captivates her flock of fans. She is at all the hottest parties in London and it is only a matter of time before women in the US start using her for style inspiration.
