The chic starlet tells us how she manages to get red carpet ready sans stylist!
Most gals in Hollywood rely on a savvy stylist to help them get glam for red carpet premieres, but not Camilla Belle! I got to catch up with the starlet, who looked breathtaking in a beige strapless Yves Saint Laurent complete with cascading ruffles, at the premiere of Armida at the Metropolitan Opera in NYC on Apr. 12, where she told me she likes “taking risks” in the wardrobe department. I had to ask how she managed to pick such a gorgeous gown and was shocked when she told me, “I don’t have a stylist, I never have!” Can you believe it? Judging by the high fashion frocks she often wears I was very surprised.
So, how does she manage to look so totally put together on her own? “My mom is always helping me out in the style department,” she said. Aw, isn’t that sweet? Considering Camilla’s mom is Brazilian fashion designer Cristina Routh, she sure is getting more than just an opinion!
I love going shopping with my mom and getting her feedback, so I had to ask, does Camilla experience the same hit or miss results most girls do? You know how sometimes your mom can really impress you and pick up something so cute but then she comes back with something so not your style? It turns out that isn’t the case! “Usually she’s spot on, and she’s the one looking at me asking, ‘What are you thinking?’” she said. I guess when you have a mom in the know who needs a stylist!
