Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice (whose show is aptly named Victorious) is about to take a step away from her teenybopper roots with a forthcoming album and a buzzy movie with funny gal Chelsea Handler out in October.
But don’t expect hard-partying or the other shenanigans typical of teenage stars transitioning to adulthood from Justice; she has a good head on her shoulders. "I’m not really the target of paparazzi. I’m pretty low-profile with my personal life." she says. The busy star is currently working on her own album, and her influences may surprise you. "I absolutely love Hall and Oates–I just found out that they’ll have a cameo on my show. I’m so excited!"
Arugably even more exciting is her upcoming film Fun Size, the directorial debut from The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz. "It’s a really great, up-and-coming cast. It’s both Josh’s first feature film and it’s my first feature film so it was really neat collaboration and learning process." In Fun Size, Justice is forced to take her younger brother trick-or-treating instead of going to a massive Halloween blowout…but then she loses him. Reminiscent of Adventures in Babysitting, the film takes place in only one night. “Fun Size is a little bit edgier than my other work but it definitely has a sweetness to it," says Justice.
When it comes to fashion, Justice relies on her mother for advice: "She’s not a fashionista herself, but she knows so much about clothes. She’s always completely honest about what works well on me: what colors, what shapes, etc." Justice says with al laugh. "She’s very blunt, but in a good way."
Even if you’re not a 19 year-old actress with a blossoming music career, you could probably learn a thing or two from this ingenue. Click through the slideshow below to see how you can get Victoria Justice’s look:
