Discovering your style can be a journey, but some people make it look easy. Disney star Sofia Carson may only be turning 25 today, but she’s already got a handle on her signature look. Whether she’s turning up in sleek Giambattista Valli, as she did last November at the Los Angeles premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, or arriving at Elton John’s Oscar party in a sumptuous Monique Lhuiller complete with train, Carson favors dramatic looks with a classic vibe. Forget about athleisure or dressing down: Carson delivers non-stop glamour.

Though her love of retro style muses like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly often leads her towards looks with a timeless feel, Carson and her stylist Nicolas Bru have been smart about keeping things current. Outside-the -box moments like the Marc Jacobs mini-dress paired with powder-pink coat she chose for the designer’s Fall show or the black thigh-high Louboutin boots and sequined bodysuit combination she wore onstage at Tokyo’s Pop Spring Festival last month provided a vampy change of pace.

Even on off days, Carson goes the extra mile. She turned a casual trip to the train station into a fashion shoot on Instagram Stories by choosing a fluffy Zara faux fur paired with jeans and glossy heels from Iro. Carson’s version of dressed-down may be fancier than most, but she owns it. Knowing exactly what you like and going for it is half the battle—and with her confident, unapologetically glam look, Carson has set the stage for many memorable red carpet moments to come.
