Style Anatomy: Emmy Rossum
The 25-year-old actress found fame aged 18 when she starred in ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and over the last few years, she’s developed a more grown up style that’s always fashion-forward but flattering.
Her favourite red carpet designers include Monique Lhuillier, Elie Tahari, Oscar de la Renta and Philip K Lim and Emmy, who is best friends with ‘Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester cites some unusual people as her style icons.
'Dolly [Parton], Barbara [Streisand], Ella [Fitzgerald]...so many different singers [are my inspiration],' she told a magazine, adding, 'I love Tilda Swinton. She keeps surprising me with her choices.'
The actress is currently starring as Fiona Gallagher in the US version of ‘Shameless’ and says that she’s had to reassess her views on style and beauty. “It’s changed my thoughts on beauty because Fiona is not about perfection,” she says of her character, who usually sports wild hair and mess mascara.
The actress says she likes to mix up designer and high street pieces and always makes interesting red carpet choices.
Here, she’s wearing one of the season’s hottest trends, all-white, but keeps it from looking too angelic with a distressed jacket, spike necklace and purple heels.
