Jaime King's Secret Weapon for Staying Calm During Fashion Week Only Costs $28
Two decades after she quit modeling for acting, Jaime King was back on the runway this past June for Miu Miu’s 2019 resort show, walking alongside fellow actresses like Kate Bosworth and Uma Thurman. “There’s a fun collide happening between the entertainment and fashion worlds right now, and it was exciting to be among my Hollywood girlfriends,” says the star of Netflix's upcoming series Black Summer.
