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.
Us: 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.
