The Select Guests
The world according to me can get pretty small, so I thought it best to pass the mic and let some real pros share their selects with all of us. I've rounded up the best of the best people — we're talking first mover innovators and today's top tastemakers — and profiling them over the course of a week.
Yes, you heard me: One Person, Seven Days. Infinite inspiration and information.
Join us each day as we unlock their recommendations and selects in the worlds of charity, food, wellness + beauty, travel, fashion, interiors and social media. Oh yeah, and it's fully shoppable.
MEET | JENNIFER BANDIER
Featured 6.27-7.3 | As the reigning Queen of Athleisure, Jennifer Bandier has singlehandedly changed the way we think about workout wear, turning sweaty gym clothes into high fashion. She's also incredibly kind, smart, funny and inspiring, and I have been lucky to call her a friend for as long as I can remember. As the owner and visionary behind the incredible brand Bandier, she has proven herself to be a force of nature: energetic, enthusiastic, loyal, whip smart and so fully motivated she'll make you wonder how she does it all. Her career has been varied (prior to launching Bandier she was a music exec, managing Grammy-winning bands like TLC. I mean ... c'mon), and everything she has done has always inspired me to work harder and be better. She's an expert on all things and her selects are the perfect reflection of her zest for life.

MEET | ANDI DORFMAN
Featured 6.20-6.26 | I had the pleasure of meeting Andi Dorfman when she first moved to New York in 2014, and was immediately struck by her beauty, brains and overall badass-ness. And while you might know her from her roles on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette (who can forget the way she left Season 18 of The Bachelor!), she is no reality TV casualty. Born and raised in Atlanta, Andi not only has a law degree from Wake Forest University, she was also an Assistant DA specializing in Gang Crimes at the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in Atlanta, which to me makes her the coolest person on the planet. And in true Andi fashion, she has kicked even more ass by turning her experience on TV's largest franchise into a toangue-in-cheek bestselling book entitled It's Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak Into Happily Never After. It's the perfect summer beach read and a true page turner. Asking Andi to share her Selects with us was a no brainer. Enjoy!

MEET | PAMELA MURPHY
Featured 6.13 - 6.19 | As the founder of The Select 7, it seemed only fitting to relaunch the site using me as the first Select Guest. If you’ve been here before, you’ll notice our freshly designed site, but cosmetic changes and HTML nip/tucks aside, we've made some other amazing adjustments. Read: Guest Selects. I started The Select 7 last year as a way to centralize all of the crazy research I do for everything from fashion to beauty to home to food and beyond, but the truth is that the world according to me can get pretty small, so I thought it best to pass the mic and let some real pros share their selects with all of us. I've rounded up the best of the best people — first mover innovators and today's top tastemakers — and will profile them over the course of a week. Yes, you heard me. One Person, Seven Days. Infinite information and inspiration. Each day we’ll unlock their recommendations in the worlds of charity, food, wellness + beauty, travel, fashion, interiors and social media. Oh yeah, and it's fully shoppable, too. You're welcome. I'll get the party started this week with my selects, and I'm excited to share the things I'm passionate about right now. But I'm even more excited to introduce you to the amazing guests we have lined up in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back every day to see what and who we're talking about.
We live in social world. Let's use it for good.

MEET | ELAN GALE
Featured 6.7 | As a producer on the hit show The Bachelor, as well as being an Internet personality, serious world traveler, consummate foodie and all around strange person (his words, not mine), Elan Gale was the first person I turned to when I was hit with a serious case of wanderlust. On The Bachelor he has the opportunity to spend time in some of the most exotic and beautiful places on earth, and in his downtime he visits some of the most far-reaching locations across the globe ("to eat and sate his calorie lust"). I asked him if he would share with us his 7 Most Favorite Places on the planet (or the 7 Places to Visit Before You Definitely Die) and he happily obliged with a list that truly covers an incredible amount of spectacular territory.

MEET | SCOTT CONANT
Featured 5.31 | Scott Conant brings a deft touch and unwavering passion to creating cuisine that is unexpected and soulful. He is the Chef and Owner of several restaurants, including Scarpetta in Miami, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Wine Bar D.O.C.G Enoteca and owns the SC Culinary Suite, a gorgeous private events space in New York City. He's published three cookbooks, and when he’s not in the kitchen, he serves as a frequent judge on Food Network’s Chopped and co-host on Beat Bobby Flay. As the unofficial expert on all things Italian, we asked him to give us his 7 favorite spots across the world worthy of stopping for a meal and he shared them happily.

MEET | CARLO GERACI
Featured 5.26 | Carlo Geraci has been a tastemaker for more than 20 years. As a makeup artist he highlights the inherent beauty in us all, and as a tabletop stylist and incredible caterer, he brings nourishment to the table. His website, Carlo Says, is a lifestyle hub I visit often, and I pretty much follow any advice he ever gives me. In this season of travel, I turned to him for his 7 travel essentials which are, of course, brilliant.
