ODETTE YUSTMAN STYLE
Worthy Investments for Fall Fashion
Odette Yustman models high-quality, designer clothing that will retain its value and stay fashionable year after year
For Odette Yustman, it was love at first sight. During a shopping trip six years ago, she spotted—and immediately fell for—a pair of chocolate-brown Fiorentini & Baker boots. They cost a hefty $575, but she just couldn't live without them. "I still wear them almost every day," says the actress, who pairs the stylish kicks with everything from skinny jeans to skirts. "And they've only gotten better with time."
So have Odette's Hollywood opportunities. The 25-year-old California native first grabbed attention in big-screen thrillers such as The Unborn. This fall, though, she's trading screams for zingers with a plum part in the much buzzed-about You Again, playing a former high school mean girl who returns years later to marry the brother of her taunt target (Kristen Bell). "Bride" is a role Odette will play in real life as well. In October, she'll swap vows with Brothers and Sisters star Dave Annable, 30. To tone up for the big day, she's working with a trainer three days a week and hiking in the Hollywood Hills. "I check out the beautiful houses, so it feels more like real estate browsing," says Odette. But unlike most brides, she is determined not to shed pounds: "I'm Cuban, so I like a bit of curve. I just want my booty to have a little lift!"
In addition to wedding wear, Odette is looking for a few key pieces to round out her fall wardrobe—a la the clothes she models on these pages. On her wish list: oversize sweaters in neutral tones, thick scarves for "a punch of color," and lots and lots of...socks? "I'm obsessed with socks," she says with a laugh. "I even wear them to bed! Dave hates it, but I love that extra warmth. That's one thing I just can't compromise on."
