Style Spotlight: 'Up Close and Stylish' on Instagram

Have you spotted this fashionable lady on Instagram?

Up Close and Stylish


She’s easy to discover on the social media network with over 600,000 followers,
but hard to know more about.
The nameless and faceless blonde women prefers to stay anonymous while sharing her great style.

The only thing we really know is that she is pregnant and engaged :)
Oh yeah, and that almost every woman would kill for the contents in her closet!

Weekly she posts a 3-view picture of herself of what she’s wearing.
This Cartier-loving, Hermes bags-collecting, has posted over 1500 perfect
stylish looks you can draw inspiration from.

Update: I got a tip from a reader that 'Up Close and Stylish' is in fact a Swedish woman named Malin Bergfors.
The fact that she's Swedish could be plausible, as she has a very Scandinavian build and look to her.

If you type 'Malin Bergfors' into Google images, you'll find many different women, but two pictures stood out to me:
(sorry for the small images)
Malin Bergfors aka Up Close and Stylish

Same body-type, same hair, but most important, same clothes! Clothes 'Up Close and Stylish' has worn.

Looks very similar doesn't it?

Here are some earlier photos in which she shows a little of her face:

I think she a very pretty girl!
Though I do want to point out that I thought she was living in NYC, as so many of her pictures showcase NYC as background.
Of course she could travel a lot to America, but this seems excessive.
BUT, a few weeks ago she posted a picture with her in the snow - when it was NOT snowing in New York, but it was snowing, however, in Stockholm...



Update #2:
If you type in "Up Close and Stylish face" into Google search or images, you'll find theses photos (scroll down).
I just want to clarify that this is NOT 'Up Close and Stylish'!
This is in fact Dutch socialte/soccer-wife Sylvie Meis-van der Vaart.

Sylvie is more tanned, has different hair (thicker), known for her dramatic weight loss whereas 'Up Close and Stylish' looks like naturally slim, and has a VERY different clothing style.
Sylvie is also known for being very short, wheras we all can agree that 'Up Close and Stylish' looks very tall and legs that go on forever.

The comparison was drawn due to this fur coat 'Up Close and Stylish' has posted,
but if you'll look closely, it's not the same fur.

Very nice. Do you know who she is or have face photos?

As far as I know she doesn't have any face-photos, and I haven't figured out who she is yet!

Her name is Malin Bergfors, 36 years old and lives in Sweden with her 64 years old husband Kurt Bergfors, who is in a wheel chair. He's the owner of the fast food restaurant MAX hamburgers in Sweden... She was first his care taker. She's a trophy wife.... and married him for the money. They live in the most expensive apartment in Sweden.

This is a very clever well done post! �� Everyone is curious to know who she is, behind that luxurious closet - with you're little investigation, I think we now have a good clue!

piyanista said...

Except the jewelery in the face photos are not right. She never takes off her wedding ring and cartier bracelets so I dont think its the girl in the photos...

Paris Pastry said...

If you zoom in on the picture where she's wearing the leopard dress, you'll see that she is wearing her wedding ring.

She is definitely a golddigger, despite she knows how to spend all that money into a perfect style, I unfollowed her on Instagram due to her post that her custom made Pigalles were not as she wanted to and she made a real fuss about it describing her shoe-problem in 40 sentences. Get a life.

If you typ in 'Malin Kansakangas' into Google, you'll find 'Malin Kansakangas Bergfors'-references.
Kansakangas might be her girl's name before she married.
