Emmy Rossum's No-Stylist Guide to Style
Courtesy InStyle Hair
Speaking of stars whose closets we envy, there’s Emmy Rossum. The Shameless star — and InStyle Hair cover girl — has two walk-in closets off her master bedroom, both totally organized and lined with looks from Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren, plus vintage finds, Target designer pieces and sick accessories.
But the actress hasn’t accumulated all of these clothes through a stylist; at the moment, she’s working solo. “I surf the Web to see the runway shows and then figure out who the fashion publicists are and e-mail them myself,” she tells the magazine.
She also creates some pretty serious wish lists in the form of lookbooks made from magazine tear sheets; there’s one for runway looks she loves, another for hair and makeup.
The star is decidedly less glam on the set of her Showtime series, where she plays big sister with a bad streak, Fiona Gallagher. “It’s changed my thoughts on beauty because Fiona is not about perfection,” she says of her character’s smudged mascara and frizzy hair. “She just looks real, and I think people find that beautiful.” For more with Rossum, pick up the latest issue of InStyle Hair, on newsstands April 6.
