Girl Crush: Emmy Rossum
My most recent television obsession is Showtime’s hilarious series “Shameless”. Although they just wrapped up their 3rd season and are in production for their 4th, I don’t get Showtime, so I’m forced to catch up on a year-and-a-half of episodes on my good old laptop. Although I could go on and on about how crazy and funny the show is (maybe I’ll save that for another blog post), the show made me become an even bigger fan of one of the main characters Fiona, played by Emmy Rossum.
I’ve always liked Emmy, but this show really proved how great of an actress she is. On top of that, she still looks gorgeous while playing a poor, struggling sister who has to take care of her 6 siblings and her alcoholic father. She wears clothes with holes in them, rarely has makeup on and has bed-head 24/7, yet somehow she still makes it look good. This point is proven in the photo above.
What I like about Emmy is that she seems like a nice, normal girl. She’s not in the tabloids for doing coke or sleeping with her director. She doesn’t need to wear sexy clothes or a ton of makeup to look good- she has a natural, girl-next-door look to her that I can appreciate. She’s a Mets and Knicks fan (which makes my boyfriend love her even more) and likes normal things. On top of that, she’s an amazing singer, which I didn’t know about until I heard her being interviewed on the Elvis Duran show on the radio. Oh- and she graduated from high school at 15 and took classes at Stanford and Columbia University. So, what CAN’T she do?
Sure, she may have dated the weirdo with dreadlocks from the Counting Crows, but I’ll let that one slide since I love her so much. In addition to having beautiful skin, a body I’d kill for and real acting chops, she also is a fashion icon to many. Evidence is below.
a lot of celebrities have dated that guy…we can’t hold it against them all. (but seriously, what is it about him??) she is adorable. i have never seen that show, but have always wanted to.
haha! there MUST be something special about him
Agreed. She’s adorable.
I agree! I’ve never seen that show but Emmy is adorable and so talented.
She is definitely a beautiful girl! (And how have I never heard of Shameless?!)
it’s on a channel most of us don’t get on basic cable.. I only heard about it last month!
Love her. She’s so pretty and love her style
I like her she’s always so poised and seems down to earth. She’s also a natural beauty.
She is so gorgeous, I love her too!
Emmy is so gorgeous! And she does have a killer voice…just rent Phathom of the Opera and you’ll be blown away.
I have to say I like her Cotton commercial 🙂
She’s a classic beauty!
I love her style she is so classic!
She’s so classy and beautiful and yet definitely has great style… like she can still add some flair to her outfits! And you’re right, she still looks completely gorgeous in ratty clothes and no make up! not fair 😉
I love her! She’s so pretty and a great actress.
Love Emmy Rossum! She was in this one disney tv movie that i loved as a kid, but i can’t remember which one. Great choice!
Genius! I loved that movie! And she has such a great fashion sense- she always looks super classy!
I totally agree! She is so pretty and natural.
I wish I had Showtime, this show looks really interesting. I love that she isn’t just pretty, she’s smart, so important!
I don’t get it either, but I watch it online!
I was wondering what she’s been up to, hadn’t seen her in anything recently. So many people are talking about Shameless, I’ll have to check it out!
it’s so funny/crazy
She’s pretty awesome. I don’t think I’ve seen anything she’s been in, but she’s one of those celebrities you can’t help but love!
She is absolutely gorgeous!
Emmy is so gorgeous! I love her red carpet style
I have never seen Emmy in a bad outfit, ever! I mean, it was probably a bad outfit on someone else, but stellar on her. I agree that she just seems so down to earth and natural. The Cotton commercials with her in them are probably my favorite.
Emmy Rossum is so beautiful and talented, it’s unreal. She’s also super well-dressed – such an amazing style icon.
She’s SO pretty! And she does seem like a normal chick.
I’ll have to check out that show. I’ve never heard of it before, and I need a new show to watch. Emmy Rossum looks like one of those girls who could look good even if she was wearing a burlap sack!
It’s hilarious (kind of raunchy), but there’s a fun storyline
