Boy, oh boy. Have you noticed Bryanboy’s meteoric rise in the fashion blogosphere? Bryan Grey Yambao, a self-taught style guru, began blogging from his parents’ Manila home eight years ago. Today, at 32, the flamboyant style icon continues to pen hilarious, sometimes bitchy, always insightful fashion commentary.

In 2008, he finessed his way into international runway events and parlayed his contacts into stardom. Then, Vogue featured the globe-trotting Bryanboy in its March 2010 issue as one of the world’s most influential bloggers. No surprise, since Vogue editor Anna Wintour began nurturing Bryanboy’s career after attending fashion shows and parties with him. Other fans include top designers such as Marc Jacobs, who named his BB ostrich bag for you-know-who after the blogger raved about it.
