Creatures of comfort, unite. Whether you joined the cozy club via the classic UGG boot at age nine or are just tuning in for its expansion into apparel, UGG is a household name in the realm of coziness. You have either lived in your classic UGG boots or will be living in the brand’s snug and stylish apparel collection. (Yes, trust us!)
Recently, the lifestyle brand hosted a dinner at The Waverly Inn in New York City to celebrate the launch of its Autumn/Winter 21 apparel campaign. Several celebs attended the brand’s intimate celebration and dinner including campaign stars Parris Goebel, Maye Musk, and Duckie Thot. Teen Vogue caught up with Rowan Blanchard and Richie Shazam during the night to discuss the legacy of UGG as a brand, their personal styles, and to get all the scoop on the pair’s favorite styles from the new collection.
Teen Vogue: How did you find your personal style? Do you have any tips you can give to people to find their own personal style?
Rowan Blanchard: Oh, gosh. I feel like I’ve trusted my heart for a while. I don’t think I ever sought out to seek a personal style. I think I’ve just always gravitated towards things. I feel like I get a lot of inspiration from films, old Hollywood, and old movie stars. It’s just glamour! [As far as tips,] I think staying true to you. Sometimes, I find that my favorite outfits are the ones I throw together really last minute. Like this one, I had no idea what I was wearing until 10 or 15 minutes before I left. Sometimes it’s good when you think less about it.
Richie Shazam: I think for me, it’s always been about experimentation. In my own style journey, I’ve always inherited things from my close friends. So, that was a part of my identity-building — my girlfriends giving me their hand-me-downs and me repossessing them with a new meaning. Which thinking about it now, it’s like all about sustainability —”oh, I can’t fit this. You need to have it.” And then also finding myself through that saying: “Well, I love to take risks. I love having fun. I love colors. I love shapes and silhouettes.”
