Welcome to Episode 14 of the Untamed Podcast with guests Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU.

Elisa Goodkind was a fashion stylist working for top fashion magazines and celebrities. After twenty years in the business, she was frustrated by how the industry, which had once been a home to artistry and rebellion, had become about selling status, conformity and increasingly formulaic ideals of beauty.  At the same time, Elisa’s daughter, Lily Mandelbaum, was a teenager struggling deeply with her body image. In an oversaturated media culture dominated by models who looked nothing like her, she was consumed with trying to change herself physically in order to be and look like someone else.

Thus, StyleLikeU was born, a multimedia company, founded by mother-daughter duo Elisa and Lily, that reveals the transformative power of personal style. In its viral video series, “The What’s Underneath Project,” authentic individuals of all ages, races, body types and genders remove layers of clothing while sharing empowering stories about style, self-image and identity. 100 episodes later and with over 33 million YouTube views worldwide,The What’s Underneath Project proves that style has nothing to do with trends, money or presenting a facade. Rather, true style is the result of radical self acceptance.
