Riverdale's Camila Mendes Says Veronica Lodge Is 'Way More Dressy' Than She Will Ever Be

Riverdale's Camila Mendes Says Veronica Lodge Is 'Way More Dressy' Than She Will Ever Be

Riverdale‘s Veronica Lodge is the textbook (or yearbook) definition of “Best Dressed”…always.

However, while we all agree that actress Camila Mendes is always on point with her style, she’ll probably never dress like Veronica Lodge outside of the set.

“Veronica is way more dressy than I will ever be!” she says in a new interview with Racked. “I’m more laid-back; the less I have to think about my outfits, the better. I prefer to have a bunch of classic pieces I can mix and match, and just keep it simple with minimal jewelry.”

She’s so minimal that every month she cleanses her closet of everything she doesn’t wear enough.

“I’m such a minimalist that I do this monthly closet cleanse where I get rid of everything that I know I’m not wearing enough,” Camila says. “Really — every month!”

She continues, “I take a lot of time going through my closet and getting rid of things, because I don’t like having excess anything. I find it overwhelming. I love the idea of everything in your closet making you happy, so you’re getting full use out of your clothes.”

However, there is one thing that Camila would splurge on all the time: “Definitely denim — I have way too many pairs of jeans.”

“Also, turtlenecks! I love wearing jeans with a turtleneck. It’s just so sophisticated and comfortable.”

Camila Mendes & KJ Apa Get Real About Filming That Steamy Shower Scene

Camila Mendes & KJ Apa Get Real About Filming That Steamy Shower Scene

Riverdale fans have been waiting to watch the development of Varchie (Veronica & Archie) in season two, and the premiere gave the people what they wanted in the form of a steamy shower scene.

Of course, as passionate as the scene looks, it wasn’t exactly romantic to film.

“Like, we just wanted to spit [the water] all out, but we had to make out, so we were just like plegh!” Camila Mendes laughed to Entertainment Tonight. “[It was] the funniest moment — It was a lot of fun!”


“It was pretty slippery in there,” KJ Apa added. “They had a fog machine in the actual bathtub.”

“We would just start cracking up laughing because none of [the crew members] were allowed to look at us while we were unclothed. But yeah, it was funny.”

Also, since Camila and KJ are such good friends, it had to be a little bit awkward! We’re glad they were able to laugh through the uncomfortable moments.

Watch the shower scene below!

Camila Mendes Teases Veronica's Dark Side in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Dark Betty might have some company on Riverdale this season with Dark Veronica.

Camila Mendes opened up to Teen Vogue about Veronica’s darker side coming out to play in the new season, which kicks off tonight on The CW.

“In comparison to last season, I think Veronica’s a little bit more grown up [this season]. I think we’re going to see her darker side a bit more, especially because her father has arrived,” she reveals.

In fact, her father’s reappearance has a major impact on her.

“He’s out of jail, he’s back in the family, and that kind of spices up their whole dynamic. Veronica has a specific relationship with her father. She resents him a little bit, but she also admires him and wants him to take her seriously,” she shared. “In this season, you’ll be seeing her try to become more part of the Lodge family, and her parents keeping her in the dark and keeping secrets from her, because they don’t want her to be involved in whatever shady business they’re doing.”

“I think her darkness this season is coming from her willingness to be part of the dark world.”

Camila adds, “I don’t want to spoil anything, but Veronica kind of takes matters into her own hands, and she’s a little bit more involved in the mystery this season. You’re going to see her fearlessness be confronted with danger.”

Veronica Lodge Will Step Up & Be A Serious Girlfriend For Archie on 'Riverdale'

Veronica Lodge Will Step Up & Be A Serious Girlfriend For Archie on 'Riverdale'

We’re already expecting Archie and Veronica’s relationship to be a bit friskier in Riverdale‘s upcoming second season.

Now, Camila Mendes is telling fans a bit more about their relationship and how it’s turning serious in her new feature with Teen Vogue.

“I imagine that Veronica, in her past, was not very much a relationship kind of girl,” she admits. “She had her flings, and the guys she would hook up with, but she never really committed to anything to play the role of a serious girlfriend.”

But that’s beginning to change with Archie for her.

“Considering what you see at the end of season one, and what that does to Archie, it traumatizes him. Veronica now has no choice but to step up to the plate, and be a serious girlfriend in order to help Archie get through his trauma,” Camila adds.

“I think Veronica’s nervous, but then that kind of transitions into fearlessness. I think she busted up the courage to be vulnerable, because there is a lot of strength and courage in vulnerability.”

Riverdale returns TOMORROW @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Camila Mendes Dishes About Betty & Veronica's Fight in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Camila Mendes Dishes About Betty & Veronica's Fight in 'Riverdale' Season 2

We’ve been hearing a lot about the rift that Betty and Veronica will be going through in Riverdale‘s upcoming second season.

Now, Camila Mendes is telling fans a bit more in her new feature with Teen Vogue.

First things first, it’s not about Archie. Or any guy.

“It’s just about Betty being in a compromising situation, and her having to hurt [Veronica] in order to protect her,” Camila explains. “It comes from a place of love, but it’s still heartbreaking, and they do eventually make up, as they always do and always will.”

She adds about why a lot of fans always think a fight between girls is all about a guy: “It’s the narrative that’s been told over and over again, especially by Archie comics.”

“I think maybe some people just feel like they want to see that play out, but that’s just not really our show,” Camila adds. “We’re not telling the story of Archie and Betty and Veronica’s love triangle. We’re telling a story of friendship and the loss of innocence.

Speaking with People Chica recently, Camila is already on the lookout for her next role and wouldn’t mind taking on a superhero role.

“I would love for my next project to be a well-written, character-driven indie. Something intimate, low budget, and completely different from the well-oiled machine of network television,” Camila shared.

She adds, “But I’d also love to play a superhero in a big feature – so honestly, anything goes!”

We’re game to seeing Camila as a superhero.
