And yes, Cameron had the best response: “me”.

China Anne McClain is one stylist starlet.

The 18-year-old Descendants 2 star always looks so on point – whether she’s on a red carpet, hanging out with friends, or snapping selfies on Instagram.

We recently caught up with her and asked about her go-to outfit.

“Leather jacket, a pair of skinny jeans, and some really beat-up combat boots,” China told us. “All black.”

Is that not the most relatable thing ever?

In case you missed it, Sofia told us her daily uniform and it’s very similar to China‘s!

This is How the 'Descendants 2' Newbies Bonded With the Original VK's (Exclusive)

This is How the 'Descendants 2' Newbies Bonded With the Original VK's (Exclusive)

We knew the original cast of Descendants was close, but the D2 additions became part of the family as well.

We recently caught up with Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson to talk about what it was like working with newbies Thomas Doherty, China Anne McClain, and Dylan Playfair.

We also talked to China about coming into the successful franchise!

“It was a little bit overwhelming at times, to be honest. The sets are so massive and unique. You haven’t really seen anything like it. With Uma’s pirate ship, and all of these amazing sets, and Thomas and Dylan were so excited as well,” China told us. “It was great. The first movie was so good, and the whole cast welcomed me. I felt like I was family after the first day.”

“It’s been so special to grow our family,” Sofia said. “And they all feel like long-lost brothers and sisters who were always part of the family. China is amazing. She’s a force to be reckoned with and she did an incredible job bringing Uma to life.”

“We met our first day, but a month before shooting, we do bootcamp where we learn how to sword-fight, we learn choreography, we work with Kenny [Ortega, the director] on our character development,” she continued. “I met China when she was recording ‘What’s My Name?’” I met Dylan and Thomas and everyone in our first day of rehearsal. You bond pretty quickly in those rehearsals because you’re there for hours and hours of the day.”

Dylan was completely new to me. He’s still one of my favorite people on the planet,” Dove told JJJ. “He’s incredibly intelligent, so if you made that character really intelligent, that would be Dylan. He’s so happy-go-lucky. He’s so sunny.”

China and I have known each other for quite some time,” she said. “I feel like it’s sort of a written rule that all the Disney girls have to cross paths. We actually met at a bunch of auditions. So I was really excited to be working together.”

As for her real-life boyfriend, Dove told us, “And then Thomas and I are obviously dating [she shows us a cute pic of them as her phone background]. That was the best. It was amazing to be able to work with them.”

And this cast spent a lot of time together off-screen too.

“We were always together. There’s this restaurant, we’d go there every night,” China said. “We went there so much that Thomas noticed when they changed one little thing on the menu. It was super fun. Or we would spend time in someone’s hotel room, and we’d play music, have our guitars, and sing and dance. It was really fun.”

Descendants' Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, & China Anne McClain Gush Over Each Other (Exclusive)

Descendants' Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, & China Anne McClain Gush Over Each Other (Exclusive)

The cast of Descendants 2 is close, that’s obvious. So when we recently sat down with Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, and China Anne McClain, we asked them about each other!

Which trait would they steal from the other ladies if they could? Their answers are amazing and such #girlpower.

Dove
“Dove has the brightest energy ever. Everywhere she goes, she makes people laugh. Whether it’s with her portable speaker that she carries around on set. When Dove was coming, you knew it because you would hear music from a mile away. Or when she’s cracking jokes. She’s just nice. She’s the nicest person ever, all the time, and I love that about her.” – China

“From Dove, as an actress, she’s really in touch with her emotions. And it’s a really beautiful thing to see how vulnerable she can be when it comes to acting.” – Sofia

Sofia
“Sofia has this presence – and I always say this when she walks into a room – you know when Angelina Jolie walks into a room, how you would feel? It’s like awesome, kind of intimidating a little bit, you’re kind of scared. She has that powerful presence. And not for any sort of reason, she’s just so confident and strong, and you can see that when she enters the room before she even says anything. That is a great trait. Anybody would want to steal that.” – China

“Sofia’s ability to care for herself. She’s in bed by 9. Water, water water, no caffeine. Sleeps every chance she gets. And also her work ethic. She’s very professional.” – Dove

China
“From China, I would say her constant sense of happiness and humor. She’s always happy. She walks into a room and lights it up.” – Sofia

“I think I would take her relationship with her family.” – Dove

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

Descendants' Dove Cameron Explains How Mal Broke Harry's Heart (Exclusive)

Descendants' Dove Cameron Explains How Mal Broke Harry's Heart (Exclusive)

Dove Cameron is giving us a little backstory before the premiere of Descendants 2.

She and director Kenny Ortega, along with China Anne McClain and Thomas Doherty, decided on the reason behind Uma and Mal’s rivalry – and Harry’s very involved.

“They have a huge history. China‘s character Uma, and Mal, were sort of like Mal and Evie (Sofia Carson) when they were younger,” Dove told us. “They were good friends growing up. Mal actually dated Harry Hook before dating Ben (Mitchell Hope). So that was each of their first loves, which is kind of funny. She was the baddest girl and he was the baddest guy. It was sort of like a Johnny [Depp] and Winona [Ryder] thing. They were madly in love.”

“Some bad stuff went on with Uma and Mal. It was a big rivalry,” she explained. “We never really decided what that was, but basically, Mal disowned Uma and was like, ‘You can’t hang with me. You’re not good enough.’ Condemning her. She was like, ‘You’ll never be as bad as me’ and she kicked her out, and replaced her with Evie. So Uma has all this animosity toward her.”

“And then, Mal broke Harry’s heart,” Dove said. “We also decided that they got secret hook tattoos, and Thomas and I would draw them under our gloves every day. We were so into the backstory (laughs). Kenny would come up to us and be like, ‘Do you guys have the hook tattoos?’ And we’re like, ‘Yeah, Kenny. Every day.’ And he was like, ‘OK, good. Good.’ So funny (laughs). And when Mal broke Harry’s heart, he joined Uma’s gang. That’s why he hates Mal so much. He’s like a broken man because of that.”
