Whether you love or hate the term It Girl, Jennifer Missoni
is definitely a girl about town who has, by all accounts of the definition, it
: amazing style, an acting career on the rise, a lovely fiancé, oh, and a famous-beyond-famous last name. After meeting up with her for an exclusive photoshoot, though, we were thrilled to find out that while she's a red-carpet stunner, in her everyday life, Jennifer's style reflects her casual-cool expat upbringing.
She favors comfort over shock-factor, relying heavily on workout clothes while bustling to and from her Tribeca apartment (yeah, we hear you, with the collective "holla-back"), and opts for dirty hair over shampooing every day (again, we can relate). We guess the difference, then, between It Girls and this girl, is that we're totally and truly rooting for her. After having seen Ms. Missoni's recurring roles on shows like Gossip Girl
, we so look forward to watching her big screen debut, opposite Christian Slater (eek!) in March's Playback
. And as for the fashion stuff? Dressing may come naturally to Jennifer (it is, after all, in her blood) but she'll leave the designing to the fam, in favor of taking director's cues from the pros. And we're cool with that.
