We're all anxious to get someone on this site who really knows her fashion, and for one post only, we've actually done it: Next week, Fashionista.com will host its very first guest blogger, Nina Garcia. The author, stylist, and ELLE Fashion Director will take your fashion questions and answer them with more expertise and probably less giggles than we do, and we're thrilled to have her. Nina was born in Colombia and raised in Massachusetts, where she went to Boston University and later to fashion programs at FIT and in Paris. She began her career as Marc Jacobs' publicist, when he was still at Perry Ellis. She later switched to the fashion closet at Mirabella magazine, and stayed there until ELLE hired her as their market editor. She's been the ELLE fashion director for seven years, and a Project Runway judge for three. Earlier this year, Nina wrote The Little Black Book of Style, and later this year, we expect her to hurl some major and amazing fashion spears at some haughty reality TV kids (cough, Christian, cough). But next week, she's all ours. Leave your questions for Nina as comments below, and she'll answer as many as she can. They can be about her job, about your wardrobe, about her books, about Project Runway, and about ELLE... Meanwhile, our question for Nina is this: When you saw Marc's grunge collection for Perry Ellis, did you understand its impact at the time? What was it like to balance its press blessings with the internal fury in the company? And do you still have any of the pieces from that collection? (!) Sorry. This is really exciting for us...
