The 90210 star gave us the lowdown on what inspires her.
You probably know Gillian Zinser best as 90210’s resident surfer girl, Ivy. Her character’s Cali cool style is certainly enviable, as is the actress’s own edgy look. Gillian hosted an event with Urban Outfitters and MinkPink in Los Angeles last week (“I love collaborating with movers and shakers and anyone wild enough to push the borders,” she explains), and we were able to ask her about all things fashion.
What three words would you use to describe your personal style?
Quirky, mindless, and moody.
How does your look differ from Ivy’s?
Ivy’s style is truly Californian and bohemian. My own is all over the place and doesn’t belong in a niche.
What was your favorite outfit as a teen?
I’ve always been a jeans and a T-shirt kind of kid!
Where do you like to shop?
Topshop, flea markets, vintage stores, and my mom’s closet.
Who are your style icons?
I’m inspired by anyone who’s honest in their own expression, people who truly beat to the rhythm of their own drum. I love the way little kids dress themselves! They’re completely carefree about how others perceive them.
What’s the one piece of clothing or accessory you can’t live without?
What has been your best Halloween costume?
Jem and the Holograms.
What fall trend are you most excited about?
