Lovers + Friends and Current/Elliott aren't the only ones who've found inspiration from Italian style star, designer and now author Chiara Ferragni. The latest LA brand to tap the Blonde Salad blogger is all-American label Guess, who handpicked the Milanese muse (and Steve Madden collaborator) as the face of their holiday collection.
Shot at Beverly Hills' luxe Maison 140 Hotel, the campaign features the global jetsetter sporting her fave pieces from the brand, including a sexy floral body con dress and the quintessential Guess go-to, an all-denim jumpsuit. The Instagram queen and City of Angels regular took a breather from her Art Basel adventures in Miami—where she's been showing some love to a few other hometown heroes—to chat with us about being the face of Guess, her go-to spots in LA and more. Read it all and see more from the shoot after the jump.

What's your favorite piece from Guess right now, and how would you style it?
"Definitely a denim jumpsuit. I would wear it with heels or flats so that it can turned to be a chic look. You know, I love to wear a piece in an unexpected way and play with accessories so that I can get a unique look."
You've been visiting LA quite a bit! Where are your fave places to hang out when you're in town?
"I really like the restaurant La Poubelle in West Hollywood. Griffith Park is also magical and I love to jog there when I have time. It's such a peaceful neighborhood. I like the Melrose Place farmer's market a lot, and Alfred is my fave coffee spot in WeHo."
Would you ever consider relocating to LA?
"Who knows. Milan and LA are my fave cities right now :)"
