Ania Boniecka @aniab
This stylish influencer posts editorial-like shots with jaw-dropping backdrops from her travels to dreamy locations such as Florence and Barcelona. Boniecka’s style is that of a Parisian It-Girl but she’s also serious #girlboss, having been nominated as Digital Influencer Of The Year at the 2017 Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards. Living in wintry Calgary, she manages to keep warm in super stylish winter outfits while posing in the cosiest mountain-lodge locations, putting the Rockies at the top of our bucket list. Pro-tip: Boniecka references all of her outfits on her feed and on her blog, Ania.B, making shopping for your next Insta-worthy look that much easier.
Lauren Chan @lcchan
This NYC-based Canadian is a woman of many talents. She’s gone from playing varsity basketball at Western University to plus-sized model to fashion editor at Glamour to founder of her own lifestyle brand, Henning. As a fashion editor, she used her voice to spread awareness about the serious lack of size-inclusivity in the industry and won the 2018 American Society of Magazine Editors Next Award, and has appeared on Good Morning America and the Today Show. On her Insta you’ll see that her beauty game is strong; while she’s clearly mastered the bold red lip, it’s her make-up free selfies that will have you begging for her skincare routine.
Vanessa Cesario @vanessacesario_
Cue the influx of flame emojis because this Toronto-based influencer’s style is #fire. As the creative director of Toronto-based swimwear brand Unika Swim, you’ll find Cesario sporting neon pink and green bikinis on her Insta all year long—despite Toronto’s six-month long winter. She also owns pretty much every single sneaker of the moment, from Yeezy Wave Runners to Adidas’ Yung-1 in Hi-Res Orange, making her the ultimate hype beast.
Ruby Benson @ragxruby
Toronto-based influencer Benson has been killing the social media game since she graduated from Western University in 2013. Right out of school, she copped the position of Canadian brand manager position at The Kooples, and interned at Complex Magazine. Currently, she stays busy with freelance stylist and model gigs as well as influencer projects with major brands like Chanel, Gucci and Adidas. Plus she somehow manages to make athleisure chic, pulling off everything from bike shorts to Off-White Converse to vintage sweat suits. Even Virgil Abloh follows her—need we say more?
