Get to know more about Sara Canning!

Sara Canning from The Vampire Diaries , which begins new episodes tonight, Jan 21 – yay!- may be busy filming scenes and hanging with her cast members — (in fact, she spent the weekend partying in a chic French Connection dress with her co-stars in Las Vegas for Nina Doborev‘s 21st birthday) — but she made some time to spill her style secrets to Hollywoodlife.com, telling us the three things she can’t live without, “Lulu Lemon pants, brown Frye boots, and Roots mittens (especially when I’m home in freezing Vancouver).” Check out what else she shared!

Here’s what she had to say!

  • How Sara describes her personal style: “I tend to be very relaxed with my style. I usually grab whatever catches my eye first in the morning and is comfortable, since I’m so busy running around and filming these days. For an event or a night out, I’ll usually choose a dress with a great fit and an interesting detail. The French Connection dress I wore to Nina’s birthday party in Vegas was a great example of this – it was a simple black dress, but the one-shoulder with the ruffles gave it an interesting edge. Dark colors work well with my fair complexion – black, navy, deep reds or deep purples are my favorites.”
  • Sara’s style icon: “My style icon is Cate Blanchett. She always looks ethereal and timeless.”
  • The three things Sara can’t live without: “Lulu Lemon pants, brown Frye boots, and Roots mittens (especially when I’m home in freezing Vancouver).”
  • Sara tells us about her “tomboy” phase: “Growing up I was a tomboy and wore boy clothes until I was twelve…but that catered well to climbing trees and building forts!”
  • Sara feels most comfortable in: “I feel most comfortable in jeans, but have really begun to appreciate summer dresses in great fabrics since moving to humid Atlanta.”
  • Sara’s favorite/least favorite trends this season: “I’m really into Victorian jewelry right now. I just really love all things antique. I like jewelry that looks like it has a history and a story. As for my least favorite trend, I think I’d have to say sky-high, uncomfortable heels — although I understand they’re a necessary evil and wear them anyway.”
