Gloria Baume, 'Teen Vogue' Fashion Director Opens Her Closet (VIDEO)

Teen Vogue's Fashion Director, Gloria Baume, is a rare bird in the fashion industry. Not only does she hate being hounded by street style photographers, she also thinks wrinkles are beautiful and getting older is an honor.

The Rome native, who collects eccentric socks wherever she goes, invited Stylelist Blogger Network members Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU into her closet. The editor -- who has worked at Glamour, Vogue and Marie Claire -- recounts stories wearing studded Eddie Borgo bracelets, prim and proper Jill Stuart dresses and technicolor-hued sweaters.

Watch the video above to learn how Baume was greatly influenced by her parents' way of dressing, and don't forget to head over to StyleLikeU for more style inspiration.
