The Young and the Fashionable

0

Being a young star in the entertainment industry can be difficult when it comes to fashion especially when one is still trying to explore and find their own personal style. Many try to be creative and on trend yet remain age appropriate as well. There are a few standouts that have seemed to have found this balance and consistently slay red carpets and everyday street style. Here are a few teen stars that have amazing, notable styles.

Storm Reid has been acting since she was 3-years-old. After earning small roles, Reid landed a role in the Academy Award winning film 12 Years a Slave as Emily and more recently has acted alongside Zendaya in the HBO show, Euphoria. Zendaya always turns out gorgeous red carpet looks and has clearly passed on some fashion advice to Reid because she has stepped it up on recent red carpets. Being only sixteen, she has managed to give us dynamic and youthful looks. The rising star works with Jason Bolden, celebrity stylist to Yara Shahidi and Taraji P. Henson.

In 2014, Marsai Martin was cast opposite Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross in the ABC comedy series Black-ish. For her breakthrough role, Martin has received numerous awards and nominations. At the age of 13, Martin became executive producer of the film Little, making her the youngest person in Hollywood to ever produce a movie. She is now 15-years-old and is showing out in the world of fashion. Even Essence Magazine has named her “the flyest fifteen-year-old.” Thanks to her stylist, Jason Rembert, the young actress and producer has been killing the red carpet in designers such as Miri Couture, Kate Spade, Viktor & Rolf and Pantora Mini to name a few.

Finally, we have Skai Jackson. She began her career as a child model appearing in numerous national commercials, including Band-Aid bandages, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Old Navy. In 2011, she was cast as Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel sitcom Jessie, which is arguably her claim to fame. In 2019, Jackson was cast in the music video for Panini, a song by Lil Nas X. The video gained worldwide popularity, and spawned a variety of memes due to her character being unable to escape the rapper. She also has a YouTube channel where she shares style and hair advice. Her tips and tricks are well received as she is a fashion icon in the making at only 17-years-old.

Even at her age, she appreciates the beauty of a designer outfit and is no stranger to high end fashion brands. She consistently posts looks on her Instagram dripped in Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen and is known to treat herself to a Celine bag every now and then as well. She can be considered a triple threat as a model, actress and fashion designer as she currently has her own fashion line called Nowadays, which is sold at Macy’s.
