8 Questions With The Ultra-Chic Blogger Behind Look De Pernille

There’s no denying our style crush on Pernille Teisbaek of Look De Pernille, so we decided to kick off our new Blogger of the Month series with the Denmark-based style influencer. We caught up with Pernille while she was vacationing (okay, and working—we can’t wait to see the looks she styled for designer Anine Bing’s latest collection) in Los Angeles last week. We learned everything from her latest life goals, to her go-to outfit, and more!

    What made you want to start your blog?

    “I was thinking about it for a long time because I was working as a fashion editor at Eurowoman for seven years, and I got asked a lot if I wanted to blog, but I didn’t think I had the time for it. Then one day I thought, why not! So I planned the concept, and after two weeks, I launched my blog.”

    “My next goal is to [travel] abroad and see what’s going on there—right now Scandinavia is one of my biggest markets, and the U.S. is number three so I want to see if something can happen here, and if it does, I plan to stay longer.”

    “For me, it was more a talent so I would have to say, Emmanuelle Alt for French Vogue. I love the way she styled things for her fashion stories, her personal style is amazing but I was more inspired by the looks she created.”

    What's the one wardrobe essential you can't live without?

    “Kind of boring, but my vintage Levi’s jeans or a white button-down shirt. I’m very much into shirts. A white button-down shirt is something I always bring with me on every trip because you can wear a it on the beach or tuck it in and wear it out—there are a lot of ways to work with it. I like being able to work with one piece and style it in different ways.”

    What's the biggest difference in your life post-blogging?

    “You’re on the job all the time. I’ve always been very passionate about fashion but when you start your own blog, it becomes your baby—you protect it so dearly and you have to take care of it all of the time. It’s not only my blog—it’s this brand I’ve created through styling, collaborations, and projects.”

    Who takes the majority of your photos?

    “When I’m on the run, it’s different, I could ask a cab driver to take a photo of me. I like a random photo, because when you’re not aware of it you get the best energy. Back in Denmark, my assistant takes the photos.”

    What's the best advice you've ever received?

    “Always treat others like you want to be treated, because it will always get back to you. When you work in the fashion industry, you might know the assistant of somebody and then you meet her again and suddenly she’s the boss of somebody else and you have to work together. For me, when I work, I always make sure everyone is treated the same—everyone has been an assistant before and we all work our way up.”
