Bella Heathcote knows how to slay a red carpet. We’ve been watching the Australian actress’s style evolution ever since she made her first major Hollywood splash in Tim Burton’s 2012 horror-comedy film, Dark Shadows—and her career has been on the fast-track ever since. Most recently, she starred as a young German filmmaker in season two of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle before taking a twisted turn as Christian Grey’s stalker ex, Leila Williams, in Fifty Shades Darker.
With each new project she takes on, Heathcote ups her fashion game. She consistently delivers major style goals at public appearances, and she's already proved that she's not afraid to make a bold choice when it comes to a sparkly gown or statement accessory. But IRL, the 29-year-old prefers to keep her looks low-key. “I’d say that my personal style is fairly casual,” Heathcote said during an interview for InStyle’s May issue. “I’m definitely aware of fashion and I have super-stylish friends, but I don’t consciously try to follow any trends.”
