Why This Teenager Is Our New Style Muse
Though we often seek inspiration from iconic females of decades past (Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot, we’re looking at you), we also have our eyes on today’s crop of young, up-and-coming tastemakers who are taking the fashion world by storm. Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg, who made recent headlines as Jaden Smith’s prom date, is one such starlet who’s grabbed our attention—and she’s only 16. We adore her fearless approach to fashion, as her edgy-yet-age-appropriate MO exemplifies a highly developed sense of personal style (an impressive feat for a teenager). Furthermore, she clearly has fun with fashion—something that can be oft forgotten with the pressures of being in the spotlight. Here, we reflect on some of her best off-duty style moments to date. As it goes with Amandla and her fashionable peers—don’t discount Tinseltown’s youngest stars, for they’re proving to be some of the brightest.
