When we asked about how her style differs when she’s in New York City rather than Los Angeles, Vanessa told us, “What changes my style most is my hairstyle. When it’s long I go for Bohemian, flowy, island style. But when it’s short I go for a more chic meets playful look. I love playing around with fashion. I don’t really have a ‘go-to’ at the moment since the weather is changing, but hopefully I’ll figure it out soon! (laughs)”
Vanessa is currently missing her favorite event of the year – Coachella! – but gave us the inside scoop on the best bands to be looking out for. “Glass Animals, Milky Chance, Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Kasabian,” she said. “I love music. I would have been most excited to see these guys. But I’m also obsessed with Flight Facilities‘ new album.”
Finally, Vanessa is no stranger to living life to the fullest and taking risks, so she gave us her best advice.
“Do the things that scare you,” she told us. “It’s the only way you can grow and reach your true potential. No idea is too big and never limit yourself. Do all you can and when you want to quit, go further. Just past the point of giving up a miracle is waiting for you.”

The 26-year-old actress recently took to her Tumblr to share her Coachella must haves, even though she couldn’t be there in person this year.
“Even though dressing up is fun, Coachella is about making new memories while listening to good live music,” Vanessa wrote. “At some point, take your shoes off. Feel the grass under your feet. The music coursing thru your body. The sun on your face. Have so much fun love bugs.”
She added, “P.S. Bring as many light up things you can find. Glow sticks, rave toys, anything. It helps at night so you and your friends can stick together. Plus, it’s always fun waving around glow sticks! Haha.”
