If you are one of the 3.6 million people who follow Chiara Ferragni on Instagram, you are undoubtedly familiar with the hashtag #TheBlondeSaladNeverStops—five words that brilliantly encapsulate the influencer’s jet-set lifestyle. Between globetrotting to far-flung locales for photo shoots, hitting up New York, Milan, and Paris for Fashion Week, and sneaking away to Morocco for vacation, Ferragni is constantly on the move. With more stamps on her passport than shoes in our closet, we were eager to know more about her favourite places to shop, eat, and play around the world. From the must-visit vintage stores in Milan to the best cheesecake in Germany, here are Ferragni’s global hotspots.
