She may be known as a Nickelodeon star, but Victoria Justice has turned heads on various red carpets over the years!
“My day-to-day look is inspired by comfort, color and just how I’m feeling that day,” the actress told Teen Vogue in 2011. “I love fashion and there is no easier way to express yourself than through the clothes you wear. I like to dress for my body type and for my coloring. I don’t want to wear a color just because it’s the in color, but doesn’t look good on me. I have olive skin so I try to stay away from pastels and I will go for the bright and bold colors.”
For the red carpet, specifically, Victoria noted that she looks for “something that is flattering on me.” She explained, “The other thing that’s so important to me is a dress that’s easy to wear. I don’t want to be in an amazing dress that I can hardly walk or sit in.”
Following her Nickelodeon days, the actress’ roles started to mature — and so did her fashion choices.
“It’s a really big change,” she told StyleCaster in 2015 about transitioning out of child stardom. “I am able to play my own age now and step into a more mature role. After my show was over, I did these really cool independent films, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List, and The Outskirts. If I was going to do another TV show, I wanted to do something that was going to be totally different.”
At the time, Victoria was starring in the MTV series Eye Candy, which she called “the perfect way for me to grow up on screen without pushing it too far.”
When talking about fashion in the same interview, the “Freak the Freak Out” songstress said her personal style would be described as “eclectic, fun and funky.” Victoria added: “I love my Rebecca Minkoff leather motorcycle jacket, a cool T-shirt and DL1961 jeans — they’re so comfortable. And then probably a pair of chunky boots or shoes that give you a little bit of lift, like a wedge sneaker.”
