Jaime King Style and Interview | August 23, 2012

60 Seconds With Jaime King: Fall Shopping, Style M.O., and More

We found a familiar face in the crowd a last night's celeb-filled Clos du Bois Rouge launch in LA — the gorgeous Jaime King stepped out for the occasion in a coral-hued Jason Wu cocktail confection, making us fall even harder for her killer style — and her pretty awesome fashion philosophy. Stylish both off — and on screen as Hart of Dixie's Lemon Breeland — King also has some pretty poignant advice to pulling off a look as chic as her own at last night's fete (see below), plus the fashion wisdom she's garnered from her TV alter-ego. Read on, in the next 60 seconds, you might become as smitten as we are.

On her Fall shopping list: "There are these really great Chanel loafers that I'm dying to have. There's this beautiful dress from Calvin that's white, that I really love. Madewell has a really kick-ass couple of pieces. There's a brown leather backpack — lots of fun stuff."

On her style philosophy: "Find your best feature and accentuate it. Something you feel really confident in. I really like, I guess, my neck and my shoulders. So I try to wear things that accentuate that. I never wear short things. I'm not into showing off my legs. Not because I don't like them, but I'm more modest. I feel like it's much more elegant to kind of be sexy while covering up."

On up-and-coming designers she loves: "I really love Haider Ackerman. He's amazing. I really love Prabal [Gurung] . . . There's so many fantastic designers that I love! I really like McQ."

Jaime talks Hart of Dixie and why we won't see her at Fashion Week after the jump.

What's in her clutch: "Literally, bright orange lip gloss and my phone. I mean, this is like my jewelry! I don't want anything to mess it up."

On how her Hart of Dixie character has influenced her style: "I think how together she is, in the sense where everything is really well thought out. Now before I walk out the door and put my hair in a raggedy ponytail, I gotta be like: put it together a little."

On Fashion Week: "I'm an ambassador for Stand Up 2 Cancer, and it overlaps so I don't feel like I can go to Fashion Week when that's the most important thing to me. I've done so much work for them and it's so important to me."
