UPDATE:Now that we're checking out for the holidays, all we really want to do is get a little cold-weather outfit inspo. So, Nora, we're lookin' at you, kid. This story was originally published on December 7.
We're suckers for the girl-next-door types. Especially when they're actually celebs. They're not only easy on the eyes, but also have the acting chops to back up that beauty. Oh wait, we're describing starlet Nora Zehetner. Seriously, she happens to be the literal girl-next-door, living right around the corner from our East Village offices. And this actress-on-the-rise couldn't be more laid-back, despite the fact that she's appeared on Mad Men, Grey's Anatomy, and Brick (to name just a few).
Luckily, her paparazzi-worthy style reminds you that she's a star even if she's too humble to clue you in. Trust us, this girl's got it. So, we couldn't help but want to capture her X factor on camera, taking to our 'hood to snap four of Nora's favorite wintertime looks, from an Annie Hall-inspired outfit to a mod girlish number. Plus, we got the skinny on her top local spots, her must-have holiday gift, and, oh yeah, her number one celeb crush. We think it's pretty clear who we're crushing on, at this point….
Check out four inspiring winter looks from NYC's hottest on-the-rise starlet.
