How Rowan Blanchard Became One of Hollywood’s Brightest Fashion Stars


It was just five years ago when Rowan Blanchard broke out with her starring role on Girl Meets World. At the time, Blanchard was just 11 years old, and her wardrobe reflected that of a Disney Channel preteen coming into her own: plenty of princessy dresses, sneakers, and frilled skirts. Since then, Blanchard has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand young actresses, as well as a respected activist. She’s also transformed into one of most exciting stars to watch on the red carpet, thanks to her genuine love of fashion and partnership with stylist Chris Horan. Over the past year, she’s donned everything from neon Calvin Klein to lacy Rodarte—and even walked the runway at Miu Miu’s most recent resort show, going on to star in the line’s ad campaign. Here, take a look back at Blanchard’s style evolution.
