If you’ve had the chance to catch films like ‘When a Stranger Calls’ or ‘10,000 BC,’ you would have undoubtedly fallen head over heels for the lovely Camilla Belle. It’s no wonder the actress was ranked #1 on ‘The Most Beautiful Faces 2010’ list; Belle is a serious stunner. Having made her debut into the industry with a print ad at age nine, Camilla Belle is still going strong with four titles currently in the works for the upcoming year.

We had the chance to get her thoughts on all things trendy during a NYC Fashion’s Night Out event for David Yurman.

5 Questions with Camilla Belle

1. What would you say is the next upcoming trend?
Honestly, I’m not one who is big on trends. I always have those go-to looks that I like on me even if they’re not on trend. A basic cut, basic colour, basic black dress…I’d rather wear that than follow trends that might not suit my body. I think the most important thing is to look in the mirror and see if you like it. That’s the most important thing.

2. Working in an industry where fashion is so important, where do you find the endless inspiration for all your different ensembles?
I think traveling really inspires me. Seeing how people dress in different countries. I was in Hong Kong for three months and I found myself trying to dress like the girls there with all the hair clips, tights, socks and glitter (laughs).

3. What is your favourite look for any woman?
I love a classic cut. A classic suit or trouser. I love a woman who can look good in a suit.

4. How do you define cool?
I guess a cool person would be someone who is easy-going. No drama.

5. What do you predict for the future of fashion?
I think fashion is always repeating itself. It goes in cycles. Recently I’ve really been into the 80s and 70s. There are so many designers inspired by history. My mom laughs at me and says "Hey you dress exactly like I did when I was your age!" (laughs) I think we’ll feel that way when we get older and see younger girls wearing the same things as us.
