Like us, the Glee starlet truly appreciates fashion! But she didn’t always feel that way, so she opened up about the moment that happened and what changed her mind.
Turns out the vehicle of her fashion awakening was none other than Louis Vuitton!
On the days before her fashion revelation:
"I have to be honest; I didn’t use to be the kind of girl who’s into luxe, extraordinary shoes or clothes. For one thing, I couldn’t afford them, but looking back, I think that was only part of the reason. A year and a half ago I had a fashion revelation."
On the moment that changed her view of fashion forever:
"There’s a great scene in the old movie Funny Face when Audrey Hepburn’s character is standing at the train station, posing and crying while the photographer, Fred Astaire, takes her picture. I couldn’t help but think of that cinematic moment when I was seated front row in Paris at my very first fashion show, the fall 2012 Louis Vuitton "train" show, where the venue was transformed into an old-timey train station. Taking in all the glitz and glam, I felt transformed too. From that point on, fashion was going to play a big role in my world."
On what she learned when touring Louis Vuitton’s Fiesso d’Artico factory:
1. Fashion is art. Such incredible workmanship goes into every piece. At the LV factory I saw workers making shoes from scratch, and I even got to hammer a locket onto a heel myself! I used to see clothes and shoes as just, well, clothes and shoes. Not anymore. The pieces I wore in Venice were exquisite— each its own work of art.
2. Fashion can change the way you feel about yourself—and how you’re seen. I’m usually low-key, but when LV dressed me, I felt somehow mischievous and fabulous at the same time. But also, when I wore those gorgeous dresses and heels, I was reminded that, as an actress, the style choices I make influence how directors think of me. There’s power in fashion.
3. Last but not least, I must say, when life’s big moments happen, it’s awfully nice to be dressed for them. One of the best parts of the trip—besides going home with amazing new shoes—was when a group of young Italian girls ran up to me on the street and told me they loved me in Glee. It was one of the moments actors live for. I’m so glad I was dressed up for it.
Aww! Well congrats to LV for winning this stunning gal over!
She definitely looks GREAT in it!!
