Liz Guber
Position: Associate Fashion Editor
At ELLE since: April 2014


Who are your favourite fashion designers?
Vika Gazinskaya, Dries Van Noten (the shoes!), Stella McCartney, Cédric Charlier. Sid Niegum is a Canadian fave.

What is the most prized item in your closet?
I hoard ridiculous, gorgeous and impractical skirts. Two standouts are a Prada PVC number from the Fall 2010 collection and a vintage Saint Laurent Rive Gauche velvet midi. I’ve yet to sit down in either of them.

What is one item you wish you had in your closet?
Right now, a white button down shirt with some interest.

What is the one beauty product you currently can’t live without?
Nars lipstick in Fast Ride.

Who are your style and beauty icons?
Taylor Tomasi Hill, Sienna Miller and Annie Potts’ character in Pretty in Pink.

What would be your ultimate fashion dream come true?
Ah, to close my eyes and wake up in a total ’80s revival – not the cut-off sweatshirt and neon kind. Give me Melanie Griffith in Working Girl, Winona Ryder in Heathers or any one of Woody Allen’s moody Manhatannites from my ultimate guilty pleasure fashion decade.
