Emily Robinson Is a Sophisticated Style Starlet to Watch

At only 17 years old, the 'Transparent' actress' self-described "sporty-fem-chic" style is already distinctly her own.

In a sea of crop tops and bodycon dresses on the red carpet, 17-year-old Emily Robinson has consistently managed to stand out among her young Hollywood peers in ensembles that conjure Old Hollywood sophistication — think classic fit-and-flare silhouettes, tailored pantsuits, mock necks and elegant embellishments.

The Transparent actress first arrived on our red-carpet radar one year ago, when she stepped out on the 2015 Emmys red carpet in a white high-low Kayat gown with three-quarter sleeves. Since then, she’s continued to eschew trends or body-baring looks in favor of pieces that fit her unique aesthetic, which almost feels beyond her years.

“I would say it’s very romantic, like sporty-fem-chic,” Robinson told Pret-a-Reporter of her style at Jenny Packham’s Sunday afternoon presentation — her first show at her first-ever Fashion Week. “I think that’s what we’ve settled on terminology-wise. It’s very clean, modern.”

Added her stylist Monty Jackson, who also works with Skyler Samuels and Mr. Robot’s Portia Doubleday, “[It’s] a modern take on Grace Kelly.”

Together, the pair are heading to Carolina Herrera tomorrow, which, like Jenny Packham, seems to be the perfect fit for Robinson’s demure style. And with the Emmys just around the corner next week, the actress’ first Fashion Week couldn’t have come at a better time.
