A Note on Crop Tops: If you haven’t noticed, crop tops are officially back! The one Catherine is modeling is from H&M and cropped only in the front. These tops are perfect with high-waisted pants and skirts.
AF: How do you keep your style up to date?
CB: Well, I love browsing through Vogue and seeing what is current, but there are also three celebrities I like to follow: Kate Moss, Emma Watson and Rachel McAdams. I love seeing what they wear both casually and formally.
AF: How has your style changed over time?
CB: I used to dress more sophisticated and wear lots of clothes from Anthropologie. I have gradually started to embrace younger, trendier clothes as I realized I won’t always be able to dress like this.
AF: So I see you are wearing lipstick.
CB: Yes! I love lipstick. Especially different variations of red. I think it looks classic, dramatic, vintage and very feminine. I don’t pull off gloss very well.
AF: What kind of advice can you give girls about applying lipstick? I think it’s not so common anymore in young people.
CB: I agree. My friends don’t really wear lipstick. I like to buy matte and blot it on rather than putting it on straight. I suggest mixing colors to suit your outfit.
AF: What kind of shopper are you?
CB: I hunt down sales and barrel through stores. I’m not what you would call a casual shopper. In fact one day this summer, I went all the way to New York for a whole day … just for shopping!
