SAB­RINA CAR­PEN­TER: Oh my gosh, Lucy, this whole fash­ion sea­son you took over ev­ery red car­pet you were on. So this might be one big com­pli­ment sesh—i hope that’s OK!

LUCY BOYN­TON: I’m chuffed! Just sit­ting here, grin­ning. SC: I’m al­ways ex­cited to see what you’re go­ing to show up in. Your looks are all very dif­fer­ent but al­ways so beau­ti­ful.

LB: My style is pretty eclec­tic. I never stray too far from lit­tle vin­tage baby-doll dresses, though. What I end up in of­ten de­pends on my shoes and if I’m in the mood for mary janes or creep­ers. I tend to be in­spired by what­ever is around me.

SC: Me too. I was just in Tokyo, and I kind of went crazy in Hara­juku. I ac­tu­ally got a lot of those vin­tage baby-doll dresses.

LB: Oh, nice! Lon­don is un­beat­able in my eyes when it comes to vin­tage. It’s a cliché, but Brick Lane is my fail-safe. I’m al­ways look­ing for new lit­tle nooks and cran­nies in the city.

SC: What was your lat­est shop­ping splurge? I just bought these Ba­len­ci­aga sneak­ers that I’ve wanted for­ever. They look like grandpa shoes, but hon­estly, they’re so com­fort­able.

LB: Mary janes by Carel. I have them in red and pow­der blue, and I’m stalk­ing the web­site for sil­ver or gold. [ laughs] SC: What’s your red-car­pet process like these days? LB: Some­times I like to be pared-down and clas­sic, and other times I’ll go much more out-there, like with that turquoise Gucci dress I wore to the Santa Bar­bara Film Fes­ti­val [op­po­site, top near right ]. I’m still try­ing to re-cre­ate that makeup look.

SC: Your makeup al­ways takes your out­fits to the next level. I’ve been pulling inspiratio­n shots from your eye looks.

LB: I wish I could take the credit, but my makeup artist, Jo Baker, al­ways has some in­cred­i­ble mood board go­ing. The bright pink eyes were the peak of our ex­per­i­men­ta­tion.

SC: Lately I’ve been into wear­ing power col­ors like pink and red—it’s like it’s Valen­tine’s Day con­stantly.

I’m 20, so right now it seems like my style changes ev­ery five min­utes.” —SAB­RINA CAR­PEN­TER

My ad­vice is to al­ways en­joy what you wear—and then walk away and don’t look back.” —LUCY BOYN­TON

LB: Red is the one that al­ways makes me feel pow­er­ful. And pur­ple too. But for day-to-day, black is my go-to. My in­ter­nal Wed­nes­day Ad­dams has to come out in some way. [ laughs]

SC: If you could swap clos­ets with any­one, whose would it be? I’d say Ri­hanna’s—not that I could wear half of it. I just feel like you can do a lot with the things in that closet.

LB: I’d go back and 1,000 per­cent take Mia Far­row’s wardrobe from Rose­mary’s Baby. It cov­ers all the bases.

SC: Good one! I’m 20, so right now it seems like my style changes ev­ery five min­utes. Some­times I love what I’m wear­ing, and other times I don’t. I have to ad­mit I stopped look­ing at my red-car­pet pho­tos a long time ago, though.

LB: I to­tally get that. My ad­vice is to al­ways en­joy what you wear—and then walk away and don’t look back. [ laughs] If you showed me a col­lage of the things I used to wear, I’d def­i­nitely turn scar­let at a lot of them. But I’m try­ing to be more in the headspace of not re­gret­ting any­thing now be­cause I know I felt good in it at the time. Feel­ing in­se­cure in a look is the only thing I re­ally ever re­gret. SC: What’s been your biggest fash­ion risk so far?

LB: The gold Ce­line dress I wore to the Golden Globes [top far right]. When my stylist, Leith Clark, first sent me a pic­ture of it, I was like, “No way. That’s just not me. So far from me.” And then, when I tried it on, I had to apol­o­gize to her pro­fusely be­cause it was per­fect.

SC: It was! There have been times when my stylist, Ja­son [Bolden], tried to put me in heels for a show and

I had to give him the look. But if I’m just on a car­pet for a few min­utes, I can han­dle any­thing. One of my fa­vorites was this chain-mail Versace dress that weighed, like, 40 pounds. It was a love-hate thing.

LB: Some­times you gotta suf­fer for that art, girl.
