For the Mom that Loves a Good Photo Op

15 gift ideas that'll have your mom doin' it for the 'gram.

By: Jodi Taylor

You know those moms who just seem like they have it all together? Whether they’re getting up at the crack of dawn to meditate or work out, or they’re working 10+ hour days and still managing to find time to do their errands and take their kid(s) to the park, they’re usually doing the most, and looking so insanely put-together while doing so. (Meanwhile, we’re just over here trying to figure out how to order a salad off Seamless for lunch). Costume designer, author, creative director and Cov-alum June Ambrose (she’s the one responsible for styling pretty much all of the iconic ’90s music videos) is a perfect example of one of these badass women—if she isn’t sitting front row in some crazy-amazing outfit complete with a top hat, she’s most likely hanging out with her (just as stylish) children in an equally fantastic and pivotal ensemble. If all of this rings true to the mother figure in your life, chances are high that she’ll go crazy over any of the below Mother’s Day gifts.

 

TO WEAR ON SET

These type of women never give up their style in favor of a more comfortable, easier option—let’s not forget that Ambrose claimed heels “are my running shoes.” Embellished headphones, satin pumps, or a shearling backpack are ideal for a mom running around on set all day or jumping from appointment to appointment.

FOR THOSE RED-CARPET MOMENTS

In other words, the perfect scenario for the June Ambrose types to really show us what they’re made of. Think colorful, embellished, and one-of-a-kind. Hint: There’s no way you can go wrong with anything from the Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons collab.

& THOSE CHILL YET CHIC NIGHTS IN WITH FAMILY

Chic is the key word here, because while most may favor casual sweats and a hoodie when watching a movie at home, those with style equivalent to Ambrose’s will opt for something much more beautiful and, well, sexy. We suggest you opt for a silk robe, or if you are going down the sweatsuit route, at least make sure it’s velvet and designer.
