Fun, flirty and floral: three rules to live by as spring and summer heat up.
Disney's Shake It Up! star Bella Thorne knows these rules all too well, and at just 15 years old has crafted her own signature style and become a red carpet regular. Most recently, Thorne turned heads at the Iron Man 3 premiere in an orange and white printed two-piece by Katie Ermilio with sky-high black platforms by Ruthie Davis and what is quickly becoming her signature top-knot.
"I like stuff that has a lot of texture or difference to it, or stuff that really moves on the body well," Thorne told The Hollywood Reporter during a recent fashion shoot at the new Alice + Olivia store in Beverly Hills, picking out a shorts and blazer combination to try on.
Thorne also admitted to being a fan of the high-waisted trend, as illustrated by her most recent red carpet look, saying: "I like to wear my skirts high-waisted -- it gives you a nice waistline because then you can wear a blousey shirt or you can still go with a tighter shirt, but either way you want to make sure you see a nice cut of the waist."
And while many redheads tend to shy away from hot hues like reds, oranges, corals and pinks, Thorne embraces them -- take a look at her Alice + Olivia picks in the video above.
When it comes to her red carpet looks, Thorne is far from a one-trick pony. Days before donning her daring Katie Ermilio ensemble, Thorne hit The Iceman premiere in a shiny blue (high-waisted) skirt, paired with a black and white sleeveless blouse. (Hmm… Looks familiar!) To top the look off, Thorne wore her strawberry tresses in loose waves with a bow on top. And at the MTV Movie Awards, Thorne looked all grown-up in an angelic white pantsuit with her hair pulled back, maintaining a feminine and chic silhouette.
The singer/dancer/actress had big news to share Thursday, announcing that she has inked a deal to co-write a YA multi-book series titled Autumn Falls, about a girl whose life is transformed by magic. Cue her 2.9 million Twitter followers, immediately declaring that the they will soon have a reason to start reading again. Says one fan: "I see a future as a Hollywood screenwriter for you, too."
The sky's the limit -- and Thorne's penchant for heels might just give her a leg up.
