B. Akerlund is a fashion activist from Sweden who started out as a stylist for low budget movies, photoshoots, and small projects and has worked her way up to becoming a world-renowned stylist. However, she calls herself a fashion activist rather than a stylist because she fights for fashion. She has worked with a star-studded list of clients, including Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Ghost, Katy Perry, Madonna, Fergie, Icona Pop, Coldplay, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and more. B. is known for her over the top and eccentric style, which has greatly influenced the fashion industry.
In this episode, we talk about B.’s childhood moving from Sweden to Beverly Hills, what it was like growing up, where her love for fashion originated, and becoming independent from an early age. B. states being pregnant with twins was the most surreal feeling of her life because growing up as an only child, she always wished that she had a twin. She also speaks about her experience going on tour with Madonna while pregnant and making the decision to take time off to be conscious about her pregnancy, as well as about the unspoken truths of C-section recovery. B. emphasizes the happiness she feels being a mother to twins and how she handles balancing her dedication to her work, kids, and marriage.
