Ashley Sky Model Ashley Sky Instagram

Ashley Sky is a blogger and an Instagram sensation. We grabbed a few minutes of her time to discuss what she’s got going on, men’s style and where she’d like to be in five years.

Check out the rest of the Best Of The Web pieces here.

We’re continuing with our interview series of influential women across the globe with blogger and model Ashley Sky. Ashley is a blogger and Instagram sensation building up an incredible following of over 800,000.

Running a very successful blog is only one string to Ashley’s bow as she’s a seasoned traveller and model. Just looking through her Instagram feed is enough to know that this is a girl with her finger on the pulse, and, looking at her blog, she travels to some of the most enviable places on the planet!

Along side Ashley Sky’s Instagram and blog, she’s gained world wide fame from her successful modelling career, and has worked for the likes of River Island and Calvin Klein. After being encouraged by her family and friends to pursue the competitive industry, and after posting a few photos of herself online, high end agency Wilhelmina models immediately contacted her.

After a few years of agency success Ashley decided she needed to cut the cord, and now manages herself, taking total control over who she models for and more able to showcase her personality.  Fans all over the world admire her stunning looks, down to earth personality and clear cut views on the modelling world – never one to sell her integrity for a photoshoot.

As soon as we heard about Ashley we knew we had to grab a few minutes of Ashley’s time. We talk about what she’s got going on for the rest of the year, men’s style and who she thinks is the most stylish man on the plant right now.

Stay up-to-date on Ashley’s movements on Instagram | Twitter and on her blog.

How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

This year has been the best yet! Being able to spend a lot of time in London has been a big highlight for me. My boyfriend is from here so it’s been really great getting to fully experience living in another country. There is no where else like it!

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

To be honest – I’ve been listening to nothing but Christmas music for weeks now. Paul McCartney’s – Wonderful Christmas Time is my all time favourite.

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

I think it’s important to just fully be yourself. That’s what good style means to me.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Be yourself. Dress in a way that makes you feel good whether you see others doing it or people think it’s cool or not.

1 tip to grow your Instagram account

I don’t think there is a “right” way or even one way to gain a big following. I do think people really enjoy seeing each other’s lives these days and it’s important to offer varied content. Letting it develop organically is important to me while also making sure all of my content feels like me.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

I really feel that anything can look great depending on how you style it and how you carry yourself while wearing it.

What’s your favourite piece of clothing to pinch from your guy?

I am so guilty of stealing my boyfriend’s clothes. His sweaters are my favourite.

Where would you like to be in 5 years?

I love the idea of inspiring and motivating people, I would love to have an established lifestyle brand that includes a line of clothing basics, stationary and perhaps one day get into home decor! I want to do it all. More importantly I hope to be living in London full time, happy and healthy.

Any major plans for the rest of 2015?

I’m going to be spending Christmas in Florida with my parents and then meeting my boyfriend in New York for New Years. I’m really excited to start 2016 in the city!

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

My boyfriend of course! I just think he’s so naturally cool. He’ll pick out things I’d never ever pick out and makes them look amazing. He’s not afraid to wear something unexpected, which I admire.
