We can always count on Ellie Thumann to take a popular fashion trend and put her own fun, flirty Gen Z spin on it. The influencer, who is best known for her lifestyle, fashion and beauty YouTube channel, which has more than 2.17 million subscribers, shared her unique take on the viral mob wife aesthetic—and we’re taking notes.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie, who traveled to Puerto Rico with photographer Derek Kettela for her photo shoot with the brand, is living her best life during Milan Fashion Week and certainly dressing the part. She swapped the trend’s signature oversized fur coat for a one-shoulder puffy fur sweater, and paired it with super low-rise baggy dark wash denim jeans. The 22-year-old accessorized with a small black shoulder bag, sleek black designer sunglasses and dangly gold earrings.

She opted for a fresh and dewy glam look, including a glowy base, feathered brows, rosy blush, sparkly eyeshadow and a glossy pink lip. Thumann sipped a small cup of coffee while posing in a classic Italian outdoor restaurant seating.

“imma stay right here,” the Arizona native captioned a TikTok of the look, while also sharing some high-quality digital camera pics of the glamorous, dramatic yet comfortable outfit on Instagram.

“Prettiest human ever,” Destynee Lace Galloway commented.

“thank you for sharing,” Ava Jules wrote.

“Beautiful,” Jade Brown added.

“You look slayyyyy😍,” Anastasia Korol complimented.

“Gorgeousness ✨,” Benjamin Puckey chimed.

“You in this fur is EVERYTHING,” one fan exclaimed.

“Iconic Ellie!!” another noted.
