Bow down to Betina Ocampo, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Lazy Dressing.”
Elle.com just recently hand-picked the offspring of former fashion model and Celestina designer Tina Maristela and businessman Rico Ocampo as one of their Most Stylish Women of New York. Praised for her “innate cool-girl style,” the 26-year-old creative director of embellished T-shirt line Betina, which is stocked in Barneys, New York , shares some of her most memorable fashion anecdotes.
For instance, did you know pre-Tavi Gevinson, Betina just might have been the coolest fifth grader, ever? “I specifically remember going to my first day of 5th grade wearing metallic blue Miu Miu stripper wedges, A.P.C. jeans that folded on the cuff, a leather fringed Margiela crop top with my belly button exposed, and a bandana. I came home with no friends,” she relates to Elle.
