It’s here! And no, we’re actually not talking about New York Fashion Week — we’re talking about the coveted special annual edition of InStyle Beauty. The issue, which features Damages star Rose Byrne, doesn’t hit newsstands until Friday, though — so we rounded up Rose’s top three style commandments to tide you over until then:
1. Thou shalt never overpay. “I’m a high street girl,” she tells the magazine, in reference to the London neighborhood that’s famous for good deals. Documented evidence: She then reveals that her favorite footwear is a pair of black suede Chelsea boots from Aldo.
2. That said, thou shalt always splurge on a timeless bag. “It costs as much as a month’s rent, but it’s totally worth it,” she says. [Editor’s note: Agree!]
3. Thou shalt never leave home without an umbrella. Even when it’s not raining. “Growing up in Australia, I’ve always been very strict about the sun. I have a small UV umbrella that I carry everywhere … I look like a crazy lady!” she reveals.
For lots more on Byrne’s look (like her style evolution and her best red-carpet moments) and to see what her hairstyles would look like on you (yup, it’s possible), visit InStyle.com and pick up the new issue, on stands Friday.
And finally, do you agree with Rose’s style rules?
