Faking It's Michael J. Willett's Biggest Fashion Icons Are Gwen Stefani & David Bowie

Michael J. Willett looks super dapper in this feature for the September 2015 “Young Hollywood” issue of Bello magazine.

The 26-year-old actor opened up to the glossy about his Faking It character, his style, and more. Check it:

On whether he had the same high school experience as Shane: “No, this is definitely a fantasy version of how I would like to be. There’s a lot of wish fulfillment in Shane. I was much more introverted. I mostly just kept to myself… In terms of being out, everybody knew that I was gay but it was not something that I fully accepted yet. You know, it’s private. I’m a private person. There are certain things that I want to keep sacred and I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with that.”

On his style: My two big fashion icons are Gwen Stefani and David Bowie. So I like to always have some sort of interpretation or my spin on both of those fashion icons. I am definitely into color right now so I’ve been really rocking a lot of vivid colors lately. That’s pretty much where I get my style.

On advice he would give to teens starting school: “Well I grew up with a lot of social anxiety so thinking about one aspect of it that I really liked, whether that was a certain class or my outfit or just something I could focus on, that made me feel so much better. Just focus on something that makes you happy.”
