Rowan Blanchard is never one for ordinary. As a Woman’s March speaker, special ambassador for H&M’s conscious collection, and an activist, we expect no less.

“I’d like to educate myself more on how to dress sustainably, but if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I only spend real money on vintage clothes… it’s obviously a sustainable way to shop—buy things that are already out in the world,” the actress shared in an interview with Elle.

Her unique yet sensible approach to fashion is probably what dictates her sense of style. When it comes to her ensembles, we’ve seen the actress grow up and take more risks.

At the LA premiere of HBO’s “Euphoria” in June 2019, the Disney starlet donned a cool Frankenstein-printed skirt from Prada’s Fall 2019 collection.

The Guardian reports that designer Miuccia Prada cited themes of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, “humanity, danger, [and] chaos,” as the main peg for her latest line.

Rowan paired the skirt with a military green bustier, also from the same collection, that featured two very large distracting pockets on the chest.
