Inspired By…Nikki Reed

Nikki Reed is more than just a Twilight beauty.


The 26-year-old actress got her start in the business when she worked with future Twilight director Catherine Hardwick on the script for Thirteen, which she also starred in. Nikki followed this with other acting roles which saw her playing the “sexually advanced” teenager roles, in such films as Lords of Dogtown and TV shows like The O.C.  She landed her biggest role to date as Rosalie Hale in the Twilight series in 2008. Aside from acting, Nikki is also a well-known screenwriter and also has released several songs. In her personal life, Nikki previously was married to American Idol contestant Paul McDonald, and is currently dating The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder.

Aside from being a great screenwriter and popular actress, Nikki is notable for her fun, but relatable style. Her style is one that is extremely easy to incorporate using clothing you already have in your wardrobe. Nikki’s casual looks tend to be based on comfort, relying on jeans, basic tees, and fun colored shoes. On the red carpet, her style is a little more fun, with great silhouettes, interesting skirts, and strappy heels.

In this first look, Nikki leaving a salon in West Hollywood in May 2014. For a muted casual outfit, select a black striped shirt, grey skinny jeans, a black blazer or jacket, red sneakers or flats, and a black shoulder bag.

If you’re looking to update your everyday styles, look to Nikki Reed for fashion inspiration.
