Want to know more about the people behind some of Instagram’s coolest accounts? Introducing Street Noise, our answer to the trends happening on the streets—and on our feeds. We’re going straight to the source for intel on how it all goes down.
Leeanna Williams, known as @guvmanian on Instagram, might live in the suburbs of Mojave, California, but that hasn’t stopped her from wielding major style influence. Her quirky Instagram shots and lookbook-inspired YouTube videos have landed her gigs with brands like Glossier and Dollskill, and her unmatched styling abilities have us wanting to dress like her 24/7. But just how did she land on her signature look? The answer: Thrift stores, and an IDGAF attitude.
Where do you live?
Leanna Williams: “I actually live in Mojave! It’s the desert, so it’s pretty drab and un-fun, but I will admit that the scenery here is magnificent for photoshoots!”
Where are your favorite places to shop?
LW: “I really don’t shop much anymore, but when I do, I go straight to my favorite thrift store. It’s a chain thrift (American Way), but I always find something when I go.”
What brands are you loving right now?
What are your go-to outfit essentials?
LW: “A pair of cowboy-esque boots, boot-cut or flared pants, ruffled/textured tops, and rhinestone hair clips.”
Tell us your style philosophy.
LW: “Wear whatever you want to wear, despite opinions other people may have. I feel like fashion is such a huge outlet for anyone’s personality and it should be unique to every individual.”
