Considering some of the most classic OG Something Navy posts were selfie-style, we’re looking back on the best Arielle Charnas (then Nachmani) selfies for National Selfie Day!
It’s crazy to think about the transformation that’s taken place over the last 10 years for Arielle, her business and of course the fact that she turned it into a huge, successful brand… thanks to the power of the selfie and her now-iconic #SNmirrormoment hashtag. After all, Arielle’s perfect mix of street style pics and #SNmirrormoments are what got us so hooked in the first place.
We all know how addicting selfies can be and even though the word “selfie” was the Word of the Year as recently as 2013, the technique has been around a for a while. Both Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton claim to have invented the selfie, but they are wrong. Allegedly, the first selfie was taken back in 1839 by a man named Robert Cornelius, who was shockingly not an influencer, but a chemist by trade. Now, women have reigned supreme when it comes to selfies, taking way more than men on a day-to-day basis. Interestingly enough, today, the average person equipped with a camera phone is expected to take over 25,000 selfies in their lifetime! That is A LOT of front-facing camera action.
Of course, with the explosion of Instagram, it’s no surprise that selfies have taken over. Check out some of the iconic poses from Arielle’s greatest selfies that started it all with looks that make up some of our favorite throwbacks of all time!
