This Valentine’s Day, celebrate love in all its forms with Jameela Jamil & her coveted closet. It’s the gift that gives back - all proceeds from the sale will support Choose Love charity. You might know her as Tahani from The Good Place, as well as from shows such as Legendary and The Misery Index but the actress and host is also the founder of @i_weigh, a platform that mobilizes inclusivity and activism through shared stories. Embracing self-love this Valentine’s Day, Jameela opens her closet to the Vestiaire Collective community, shares her style and sustainability tips... and why she loves a power suit!
How would you describe your personal style?
Comfortable, playful and glamorous. I don’t take myself or my style too seriously and am obsessed with colorful power suits because they make me feel confident.
What would suggest to your best friend as the perfect first date outfit?
I think being comfortable is the sexiest thing on earth! You should be able to walk and breathe all night.
What is your top tip for living a more sustainable lifestyle?
Buy things that YOU love, not the things the world TELLS you to love because it’s “trendy.” If you buy something you love, you’ll still be wearing it until you’re 80.
If you had to pick a pre-loved gift from Vestiaire, what would you buy?
I love to live simply with just my phone, keys, credit card and lipstick. I’m a big fan of a small classic handbag and this one would make a beautiful gift.
What’s your favourite piece you're selling on Vestiaire Collective?
My vintage Chanel suit. It’s one-of-a-kind and something I feel beautiful and empowered in.
What’s the most romantic gift you’ve ever given? & what’s the most romantic gift you’ve ever received?
For my birthday, during a hard time in my life, my boyfriend flew out to surprise me and brought my best friend in the world! We all laid in bed eating room service together and laughing until we couldn’t breathe.
