We're always on the prowl for a fresh take on fashion — especially when it's from the lab. Say hello to Carla Cabrera, founder of The President Wears Prada, co-head of online shop ANTHOM, and cancer research scientist at D.C. Simply put, this buzz-worthy babe is quite the entrepreneur. Scientist by day, style savior by night, her resume is almost as impressive as the way she manages to masterfully wear neons without being sucked into the rainbow abyss.
TPWP's crisp photos shed light on her personal taste and in-the-know weekend afternoons, but it wasn't until she took us around the city when we saw Washington, D.C. through her perspective: As the high-stylin', art and design hotbed it really is. Come along as Carla lays down the law on the capital's hottest hoods, dopest restaurants, and top vintage digs. No guided museum tours in this girl's rundown, promise.
