Olivia Rodrigo’s Stylist Laura Sophie Cox Interview

Only a couple of weeks into 2021, and it appears like we’re all simply residing in Olivia Rodrigo’s world. The 17-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress kicked off the 12 months with a breakup music titled “Drivers License” that is dominating the charts and a moody music video to match. I’ve saved the observe on repeat (and because it’s breaking data left and proper, I’m certain I’m not alone), and I’m now deep into the Olivia fan membership. So a lot in order that I’m not solely admiring her voice — I’m admiring her vogue, too.

I chatted with Olivia’s stylist, Laura Sophie Cox, who attire different stars you already know and love like Emma Watson and Bianca Lawson. Laura instructed me that, like Emma, Olivia has her eye centered on eco-friendly vogue. “She’s only 17, but she has this huge passion for sustainability. It’s really exciting and refreshing to see,” Laura mentioned. “We share the same love of Depop, thrift stores, vintage, and she has a great sense of style.”

“She’s only 17, but she has this huge passion for sustainability. It’s really exciting and refreshing to see.”

For Olivia’s press excursions and journal shoots, Laura strives to choose high-fashion seems to be from eco-friendly designers like Stella McCartney, Maggie Marilyn, and Lizzie McQuade. “What better way to celebrate these designers than by having strong and powerful women, like Olivia, wear their clothes?” Laura requested.

Young folks, like Olivia, particularly worth sustainability as they see the continuing affect local weather change has on their lives. Laura is conscious that not everybody has entry to designers like Stella McCartney at their fingertips — particularly not youngsters in Olivia’s age group. For Gen Z, Laura recommends utilizing an app known as Good on You to get a breakdown of your favourite model’s eco-footprint up shut.

“Good on You does all the work for you. It can be a complete minefield, but [the app] is the world’s leading source of fashion-brand ratings. They do all the hard work for you,” she defined. According to Laura, the app makes use of knowledgeable evaluation to present manufacturers a rating “in terms of animal, labor, and environment” affect. “Having apps like that on your phone help to cut out the middle man and do all the work.”

When Laura is not styling Olivia (like for the current “Drivers License” music video), she’s admiring the singer’s type from afar. Despite being born within the early ’00s, a fast scroll by means of Olivia’s Instagram exhibits she’s closely influenced by ’90s vogue. She gravitates towards stylish Gen Z kinds, particularly smocked tops, oversize T-shirts, swimsuit units, overalls, chunky Dr. Marten boots, and Converse sneakers. “She likes her flats. Like me, avoids heels,” Laura joked.

Laura will get a entrance seat to Olivia’s many unimaginable accomplishments, and her satisfaction extends far past what the singer decides to put on. “She works so hard and deserves all the success,” Laura mentioned, referencing the current “Drivers License” craze. “She’s a superstar. She’s achieved so much, and she’s only 17. And on top of that, she’s the kindest soul.” Laura continued, “She thinks with environmental and social responsibility. It’s a pure joy working with her, and she deserves all of it.”
