Hollywood's Rising Stars' Style Wish List

Photographed by Olivia Malone.
We're always on our "ones to watch" game, and just because season finales have wrapped that doesn't mean we're about to let television hiatuses slow our roll. This summer, we're all about keeping up with the budding starlets whose careers we're most infatuated with. World, keep your eyes peeled for breakouts like comedienne Issa Rae, The Walking Dead's Emily Kinney, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Stephanie Beatriz.
And, since we also cannot get enough of their own personal flair, we've rounded up the style pieces that these soon-to-be leading ladies are coveting this summer — all conveniently available at designer arsenal Neiman Marcus. This, of course, being perfect timing since we need to do something besides twiddle our thumbs for their season premieres. Scroll on through to get the lowdown on the star-approved goods that come recommended by Issa Rae, Emily Kinney, and Stephanie Beatriz themselves.

Emily Kinney has given Hollywood a run for its money. When she isn't kicking (zombie) ass as Beth Greene in the gnarly series The Walking Dead, you can find the multitalented songstress taking front and center stage as Emily Kinney, guitarist and musician. A nice escape from the undead dystopia! Check out her go-to fashion pieces, that is, when she's not rolling around in the dirt and running from the sprinting corpses.

The character of the hilarious Rosa Diaz, the feisty detective that Stephanie Beatriz plays on the newbie hit comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, seems to suit her well. Similar to her on-screen persona, Beatriz is no-nonsense when it comes to her own sartorial choices. Her looks are all about being fierce, comfortable, and packed with plenty of punch. Diaz may be wielding bad guys nonstop, but Beatriz is about chic-ing up her rough edges when the cameras stop rolling.

"I LOVE these jeans. Rag & bone is one of my favorite brands. These are super-durable and comfortable, so I'll wear 'em while running errands all day with sneakers and then throw on some heels and look like I made an effort."

"At some point, it's really easy to just stop dressing up. But, I would totally wear this if I hadn't seen my boyfriend in a while and wanted to be like, 'Hey, remember how adorable I am?'"
