Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day (anything you’d like to
I'm Keren Batista, not Karen! I'm 27 years old. I work as a journalist in a magazine, but with marketing and advertising. Most of the time I like to dress comfortably, basic pieces of clothing and ballet shoes. For the night, I'm more into eclectic style.
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Panamá (Central America). Right now tropical prints are the “must-have”. Also skinny jeans in bold colors are very popular.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
Mmmm, difficult question! I have so many. Valentino has that feminine touch every woman
loves. But Marni, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Kenzo, Diane Von Furstenberg, Rebekah Minkoff, Alice + Olivia
and Carven are brands that I always find very attractive.
Which celebrity has great style? What do you like about their style?
Rachel Bilson because she knows how to look casual, chic and very glamorous.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
I'd like to work in communications.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Oh, Polyvore is my push to work hard for clothes. I love to work with creativity, and this is like a canvas for virtual artist!
How would you describe your set style?
Glamorous, wearable and a mix of things.
How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
Before my life got so complicated I used to visit Polyvore every day! Right now, I enter like three times per week to check what is happening.
Describe your personal sense of style.
¡Complicado! I have my “seasons." Sometimes my sense of style is oriented around colors like orange, yellow, purple... And also my style is very close to the 70’s with a touch of modernity.
Got any requests for the Polyvore team?
More international contests please.
