Meet Tyler McCall, one of the incredible women we asked to jump in front of the camera during our spring campaign.
Tyler is the editor-in-chief of Fashionista.com, where she used to religiously leave comments while an undergrad at the University of Florida. She spends a lot of time wondering if the boys of One Direction are happy on hiatus and trying to find the perfect reaction GIFs of Blair Waldorf. She's also logged hours at Teen Vogue, Vogue Runway and WWD.

As an EIC, what advice would you share for young women with big career goals?
Be open to the possibilities! I think we're told early in our careers that it's important to have a road map of where you want to go and what you want to accomplish, but the most interesting things that have happened to me have come from opportunities I would never have even imagined. It's good to have a destination in mind, but take the detours along the way, too.
What fashion lessons do you think every woman could learn from Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen?
Well, I'm obviously biased towards Blair, who taught me there's never a bad time for a hair accessory, but I also appreciate how fearless Serena's style was.
What are your favorite 3 books?
This changes all the time, but currently: "Detransition, Baby" by Torrey Peters, Andre Leon Talley's first memoir "ALT: A Memoir" and "The Hike" by Drew Magary.
How do you recharge after a stressful week at work?
I'm a big fan of long, hot baths; I recently caved and bought a Kindle so I could read while soaking, though often I'm in there with the latest issue of New York magazine, too. Mostly, though, it's just nice to spend time at home with my boyfriend and our cat Evie, who loves a good cuddle.
What's your favorite RA style and what would you wear it with?
I can't wait for spring so I can wear the dusty violet twist sandal. Generally speaking, I'm a skirts and dresses person, but I feel like they're going to look just as good with my jeans.
