Dream team! Dove Cameron is a huge fan of Winona Ryder‘s fashion sense. “My style icon will always and forever be — even though it’s not always reflected in the way I personally dress — Winona Ryder,” the 23-year-old told Life & Style exclusively while promoting her new capsule collection called The Dove Cameron x Privé Revaux, which is available on Friday, November 1. “I live and die by Winona Ryder.”
The Disney starlet continued to elaborate on the types of clothes the Stranger Things actress, 48, wears that resonates with her. “It’s more of what she wore when she was in her Beetlejuice era — back in the day,” she said. “She wore this really beautiful, white dress, but the thing is — she was such a tomboy. I don’t know, her whole aesthetic was just so intelligent and so her but also, like, jeans with her leather jacket and her T-shirts and her red lipstick and the bare eye and the short tomboy cut. She is such a badass, I love her.”
It sounds like the blonde beauty has taken notes from Winona. “If I could wear jeans and a white distressed shirt and a leather jacket every day, I probably would — with a bold red lip or something like that,” she confessed. “But my go-to that I usually realistically do is a long, vintage sundress, like a button-up down to ankles and then massive men’s docks and a messy bun and big sunglasses.”
Even though the Washington native has evolved since her Disney days, she said she is still the same person when it comes to her outfit choices. “I have always been much more masculine and punky than I think people think I am,” she explained. “But now that I am getting older, and I am really embracing that because I am starting to actually speak up and be like, ‘Hey, I don’t like this,’ or ‘Hey, I would really rather wear this.’ I think when I was younger, I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t know, put whatever you want on me.’”
Meanwhile, the Liv and Maddie alum is adding one more thing to her resume: sunglasses creator. “My parents were actually jewelry and import designers, and so I have always had a great passion for design, and I really had a great time,” she admitted about her latest endeavor. “I was really excited and kind of surprised about how much they wanted me to design the collection, and I am really pleased with how it turned out. It’s really cool to see them physically formed that quickly.”
So, can we expect Dove to create a clothing line at some point in the future? Perhaps! “I would love to design,” she shared. “My aim was always to design clothing. I wasn’t thinking of myself as a sunglass designer, but I do think if you have an interest in design that branches over everything. Like I said, my parents are designers, so I always have that kind of itch in the back of mind.”
We can’t wait to see what Dove does next!
