Chriselle Lim (born 1985) is an American fashion stylist, lifestyle and beauty blogger and digital influencer.[2][3]

Early life

Chriselle Lim was born in Texas and spent four years in Seoul, where she was enrolled in a foreign school.[4][5] Lim stated an early role model of hers was Victoria Beckham.[6]

Lim attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising from 2004 to 2008, following in her mother's footsteps, who also studied fashion.[7] At the time, Lim intended to be more on the business end of fashion, such as a fashion buyer, instead of being on the creative side.[8]


She was a stylist and the fashion editor for a local luxury magazine in Beverly Hills before she began blogging.[9]

Lim became a style director for GENLUX in 2011 and is currently the magazine's editor-in-chief.[7][10] She founded her main website in 2011 as well.

In 2016, Lim appeared in the centennial ad campaign for Keds.[11] The same year, she was part of a panel interviewing Hillary Clinton on Lifetime's show The Conversation.[12]

Personal life

Lim married Allen Chen in 2012 and separated in 2021.[13][14] The couple has two daughters.[1]
