Up close with young Hol­ly­wood’s trendi­est stars, and Ser­ena makes a big U.S. Open state­ment.

It’s all about trends for to­day’s tastemakers — and en­ter­tain­ment’s ris­ing tal­ent gave their take on fash­ion’s most pop­u­lar fads last week on the red car­pet. When it comes to the no-pants look, made stan­dard by Hailey Bald­win and Ari­ana Grande, the re­views were mostly pos­i­tive.

“I have had a heavy phase with that, and I was do­ing it all the time,” said singer Chantel Jef­fries at Va­ri­ety’s an­nual Power of Young Hol­ly­wood event, spon­sored by H&M, in L.A. last week. “I haven’t done it re­cently with thigh-high boots, but I think it’s easy — it’s only two things. How much eas­ier does it get than that?”

In­flu­encer Gigi Gor­geous is a big fan of the state­ment style.

She said, “I feel like [Grande] is the pi­o­neer of that fash­ion, but I just like to show my body more. I can get down with that look on a lazy day or if you’re glam from the neck up and don’t want to be in some­thing tight, just throw on a sweater and thigh-highs, and you’re turnt.”

As far as mak­ers of the dad shoe trend are con­cerned, the young gen­er­a­tion still can’t get enough.

Said singer Daya, “I’m so into [it]. I just bought a pair of the Jef­frey Camp­bell ones — I’m into the retro look.”

Jef­fries also said that she’s a fan, with Louis Vuit­ton’s Arch­light sneak­ers be­ing a go-to.

Ac­tress Madi­son Pet­tis told FN she loves the look but hasn’t bought a pair yet. “I’m so short, I don’t think it’ll look good on me,” the Dis­ney star ex­plained.

The Va­ri­ety event, where en­ter­tain­ers were fêted for mak­ing an im­pact on the in­dus­try this year, hon­ored Shawn Men­des, Pete David­son and Amandla Sten­berg. Other up-and-com­ers on the red car­pet in­cluded Madi­son Beer, Kiersey Cle­mons, Joey King and more.
