One Tree Hill’s Shantel VanSanten: My First Fashion Week!

One Tree Hill star Shantel VanSanten, 24, hit up New York City’s Spring 2010 fashion shows for the first time ever. After checking out the latest looks from Alice + Olivia, Jill Stuart, Badgley Mischka and Diane Von Furstenberg, she opened up to UsMagazine.com.

Us: So this is your first time at the tents?
SV: It is! I’ve always always been working in Russia or New Orleans or somewhere so I’ve never been able to make it before. I’m excited.

Us: What are some of your favorite looks?
SV: I love that all of Alice + Olivia’s clothes have such a youthful spirit. I love the funky to feminine aspect of Jill Stuart. I went to DVF, and the clothes were incredible. I kept saying that’s my favorite and then something else would walk by and that’d be my favorite.

How would you describe your personal style?
SV: It changes day to day. Sometimes I wake up and feel punk rock, like I’m in a band. I am always all over the map.

Us: Whose style do you love?
SV: Kate Hudson is my style icon.

Us: Your One Tree Hill co-star Sophia Bush is a huge supporter of fashion week. Do you guys talk fashion on set?
SV: We do. I actually gave her a pair of Omelle shoes that she wore to the Alice + Olivia event the other night.
