Sabrina Carpenter, 17-year-old actress (of Girl Meets World fame) and singer is having a very big month. After kicking off her nationwide EVOLution Tour in the middle of October, Carpenter has hit her stride with performances at some of the industry’s most coveted venues, including the Highline Ballroom in New York City, and The Foundry at the Fillmore in Philadelphia.
Punctuating the teen idol turned pop star’s performances are a myriad of ensembles finessed by Carpenter’s stylist, Kris Zero, which range from high-school-friendly varsity jackets (“Sabrina and I are both huge fans of Coach; Stuart [Vevers] sent over this jacket as a surprise and we ran with it!” said Zero) to more directional looks. “What you wear onstage is a reflection of your artistry,” said Carpenter, and Zero defines her artistry as: “glamour meets rock ’n’ roll.” Basically, it’s an elevation of a teen sensation on the rise, in the manner of earlier teen-targeted television turned recording successes like Miley Cyrus, Zendaya, or Selena Gomez. Of the wardrobe required, Zero says: “[It’s] a bit of Sabrina’s staples and serious looks for a rising star on her first sold-out tour.”
