Chiara Ferragni talks about “A recurring theme in “Chiara Ferragni: Unposted” is the struggle of being a woman at the top, underscored in a (truthfully, somewhat contrived-feeling)” in a conversation with Diane von Furstenberg.
“Chiara Ferragni: Unposted” is Ferragni’s own near-insatiable drive to prove herself in a field which always underrated her. She talks about how she encountered her very first haters on Flickr, how she could hear people talking about her at her first fashion events, saying that she wouldn’t last six months.
The better part of the movie is the back half, which gets more into Ferragni’s personal life. It details her relationship with her sisters, the difficulty she faced in the wake of her parents’ divorce.
Ferragni confesses that she doesn’t feel guilty about traveling for work, because she wants to be an example of a mother who desires to always be with her son but isn’t forced to do so. Ferragni talks about “The Chiara I would like to be,” a guiding mantra for her decisions. She also admits that sometimes she has a hard time being fully present in the things happening to her — “Sometimes when things are going well, you get scared,” she admits, owning up to feelings that it could all be taken away from her.
