Though rare, it's not impossible for indie actors and filmmakers to make it in the mainstream: Carey Mulligan, Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson are just a few of the talented ladies who've successfully crossed over. Amy Seimetz could very well be the next star to do the same.
The drama continues in Rosewood. In case you missed last Tuesday's episode, a whole lot of crazy went down (per usual). But don't worry—we would never spoil the fun for you. Instead, we're here for our weekly PLL Fashion Face-Off, where we weigh in on the style choices of our favorite small-screen quartet: Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna.
There's no easier way to dress up an outfit than with some eye-catching accessories. Jewelry, in particular, can make a simple look—jeans and a basic tee, a solid dress with heels—so much more visually interesting.
Have you been watching The Mindy Project on Fox? Created by and starring one of our favorite comedians, Mindy Kaling, it's one of the funniest shows on air right now—and it's packed with some serious style. We've already shopped out the pilot, but with only three episodes left this season, we thought it was time to give you some more inspiration.
You probably know Janel Parrish as the nerdy-turned-popular-turned-insane high schooler on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, which is now in its third season. Her character Mona Vanderwaal naturally has a well-stocked wardrobe—and as it turns out, Parrish's own closet is pretty awesome, too.
Ashley Bell is best known for her roles in horror films like The Last Exorcism (The Last Exorcism Part II opens on March 1) and The Day, but this actress is far from the scary, demonically possessed girl we know on the silver screen. In fact, Bell is a bubbly fashion fanatic with a taste for British labels and cruelty-free makeup.
She's playful, girly and compelling on every red carpet. Her style might not be conventional, but her confidence helps her pull off even the most daring looks.
When Christina Applegate met the team at FabKids.com, a new and super stylish clothing line for young girls, she knew it was a match. "What really drew me in was the brand's philosophy and emphasis on encouraging girls’ individuality through personal style," says Applegate, mother to 2-year-old Sadie Grace, "I love the idea of empowering our daughters with what they wear and giving them the freedom to express themselves at a young age."
Our latest style crush is Nashville native signer/songwriter Holly Williams, who CMT recently named one of the "Next Women of Country." This comes as no surpise—music is in Williams' blood.
The 26-year-old, once a substitute teacher in a Birmingham secondary school, holds a degree in composition from the Birmingham Conservatoire. She combines this classical training with her Caribbean background for smooth, soulful sounds that, while current, have a bit of an old-timey feel.
Listening to her music, I'm reminded of artists like Norah Jones and perhaps a hint of Kate Nash, but her style is so unique that it's hard to compare her to anyone else. Her vocals are raw, her music refreshing and she's kind of perfect for any mood you might find yourself in.
Kaling says that a typical off-screen outfit for her is "Helmut Lang and Club Monaco and flats." The reason? "Because I'm a comedy writer." When you have to sit down and write, comfort is key.
Imagine having unchecked access to Dolce and Gabbana, Roland Mouret, Jenni Kayne, Yigal Azrouel and Céline's entire collections—millions of dollars' worth of wardrobe—and not having to foot the bill for any of it. A girl can dream, right? For celebrity stylist and costume designer Sophia Banks-Coloma, our dream is her reality.
Zehetner may have attended the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science for a year (she's from El Paso), but don't let those Grey's scrubs fool you—her switch from science to screen didn't unfold as you might assume.
