Men Behind the Minxes: 5 Blogger Boyfriends

Behind every great woman is a… photographer?! You know the saying, “Behind every great man, there’s a great woman.” Well, what if the great woman is the one front and center? Then what? Female fashion bloggers today are not only the new celebrity, but savvy business women. They are successful, charismatic and at the center of our attention. While we may admire them for their unique styles and go-getter mentalities, we have to wonder who the men are standing behind them (or in front of them with camera in hand!). Many of these blogger boyfriends are the ones taking their glamorous photos. Some are their toughest managers. All are their biggest supporters. Let’s take our eyes off the ladies for a second (but just for a second!) and have a look at their male counterparts.

1. Johannes Huebl (Boyfriend of Olivia Palermo)

You think Olivia is beautiful? Wait ’til you lay your eyes on her boyfriend, Johannes. This blogger boyfriend is a German model who has been featured in GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar along with many lifestyle magazines, working for clients like Hugo Boss, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, Mercedes Benz, Dunhill, MontBlanc, J Brand, just to name a few. A past resident of Paris, London, Barcelona and Tokyo, this globetrotter has now lived in the Big Apple for the past 8 years where he spends his time taking fashion portraits himself.

2. Wes Mason (Boyfriend of Song of Style’s Aimee)

With his girl in front of the camera, Wes Mason is usually behind it. A photographer/graphic designer, Wes definitely has a following of his own with over 20,000 Instagram followers. Cool imagery of bands, sports and scenery, Wes’ shots are definitely something to check out.

3. Andrew Arthur (Boyfriend of The Blonde Salad’s Chiara)

Bloggers just can’t seem to stay away from snap happy photographers! Split from ex-boyfriend/manager/photographer of over 6 years, Riccardo Pozzoli, Chiara has moved on to another behind-the-scenes man. His name is Andrew Arthur, a laid-back American guy with a cool, west coast style. While many of her fans were sad about the break-up of her and Ricky because they were such a strong Italian, fashion-forward power couple, Minx Society would take her wardrobe either way- Ricky era or Andrew era!

4. Colin Sokol (Boyfriend of fashiontoast’s Rumi Neely)

On-and-off-again couple Rumi & Colin (another blogger-photographer duo) may have had their ups and downs, but we can’t help but give them a nod approval for having such great chemistry that Ralph Lauren wanted to make a commercial featuring them for the Big Pony fragrance called The Laws of Seduction. Do you want to know how Rumi’s blog started? Colin caught her taking photos of herself against a garage door back in ’07 and voila- fashiontoast was born.

5. Temoc Gonzalez (Boyfriend of Sincerely, Jules’ Julie)

Now that we’re at #5 on our list, we’ve definitely learned one thing- photographers are the new boyfriends. Like the last 4 on the list, Temoc is one of the reasons for his fashion-forward girlfriend’s success.

Alright, now that we’ve seen the men behind the minxes, it’s time to turn our attention back to the ladies. See some of these fashion bloggers at Coachella, New York Fashion Week & Halloween! While you do that, I’ll be out trying to find my own photographer soulmate.
