My mom sent me the February 2011 issue of Teen Vogue. I was really happy when I got it because I haven’t opened a recent U.S. fashion magazine in months. Teen Vogue was the first fashion mag I was into. I subscribed to it when I was 13 and still have stacks upon stacks of these magazines in my room. So I was really really happy when I saw who the cover girl was. Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars! My current favorite American TV show, and Mara Clara being my fave Filipino telenovella. ANYWAYS, I remember watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and saw Hale play the younger sister of Alexis Bledel. I thought she was incredibly pretty, and she hasn’t changed much since then, especially those bold eyebrows I wish I had. Her character, Aria, in PLL is so adorable. I love her as an actress! And not to mention her style in the show- elegant darkness. You usually see her dressed in all black or dark hues with lace, minimal soft ruffles, and other feminine decor with a rock edge.
As I was reading the article, I became even more of a Hale fan. She seems so confident and down-to-earth; it’s inspiring. Then I was looking at her outfits from her shoot and I absolutely love what she wore! Both of her two main outfits consisted of a solid color garment paired with a printed garment and big statement necklaces. It reminded me of Rebecca Bloomwood’s style which is probably why I loved it even more. I really love her dark pistachio long sleeve blouse tucked in with the high waisted animal print pants. Bold colors and cheetah print. Love! I read that she’s starring in Scream 4. I’m not much of a horror movie fan, but I’m excited to see her other works!
“Surround yourself with the right people, and realize your own worth. Honestly, there are enough bad people out there in the world- you don’t need to be your own worst enemy.” -Lucy Hale
