Benson was most recently spotted showing off her unique personal style at a 7-Eleven in Los Angeles yesterday, posing for cameras as she sipped the ceremonial “First Slurpee of Summer.”
The 23-year-old actress was seen sporting an oversized, distressed black tee from French clothing brand Enfants Riches Deprimés, cuffed dark wash skinny jeans, and vintage-looking black ankle boots, tying together a grungy-chic kind of look with tousled hair and layered necklaces.
At Nylon’s Young Hollywood Party earlier this month, Benson arrived looking equally rock and roll chic. The star looked effortless and cool in slim black skinny jeans and tall boots, a plain white tee, and a slouchy black leather jacket, all topped with a casual rolled beanie.
It’s obvious the young starlet has a very clear sense of style, but the same can also be said for her character on PLL.
On the popular TV series, Benson plays Hanna Marin, a diva with a big personality and a style to match. Marin, formerly an outcast in high school, holds tight to her newfound status and leaves no room for question by putting her most expensive-shoed foot forward every day.
A fan of tailored blazers, shimmering jewel tones, and diamonds, Marin’s opulent style works for Benson, whose radiant face and gorgeous features are complemented by the glitz and glamour.
It's true, time has revealed that blondes can effectively pull off the all-black rocker chick look due in some part to the necessary contrast of colors between blonde and black (think Madonna in the ‘80s), and Benson proves to be no different. Still, Hanna Marin’s style on the show fits just as well with Benson’s fair hair and complexion.
Either way, Benson stands out as one of the best-dressed young stars on the scene.
