You know when you admire someone from afar and meeting them could either reassert that infatuation, or completely break all illusions of grandeur? Jeanne Grey from Grey Layers most certainly falls under the former category.

We were instantly taken by her super strong aesthetic when stumbling upon her sharply curated Instagram account a little over a year ago. Our crush on her basically began from the second we hit that follow button. Meeting Jeanne in person made it that much easier to understand her appeal: her sweetness, all-around good vibes and abundant charisma would make anyone a believer. Not to mention her serious style flair.

It's no wonder we were excited to give her the DH Q&A treatment, as we wanted to scratch the surface of that undeniable point of view. Read on to discover where you can find her on a Friday and what she can't live without.
