It’s taken us some time to come around to Miss Rosario’s style, but we recently realized we were looking at it the wrong way. When you talk about celebrities who have a very New York style, you’re usually referencing a sort of moneyed boho, the likes of which is best embodied by Sarah Jessica Parker, or high-end hipster, embodied by people like Michelle Williams and Zosia Mamet, or socialite chic, embodied by your Allison Williamses. But Rosario’s style tends to reference the vast majority of New York sidewalk looks. We don’t quite mean that it’s “street” in the sometimes ethnic or race-based way that word is used in fashion. We mean she looks like a thousand New York City gals heading to her job or to a party or to a date.

And then there’s the way she tends to get into the spirit of things. Not that high kicks are all that expected during fashion week, but she’s clearly having fun with it. Neither the hat nor the boots are quite to our tastes, but the look overall is bold and fun and takes great pictures. And like we said, it all feels like her.

Come on. She’s adorable. The makeup may be way off and the skirt may be a bit much for anyone to handle, but there’s so much high-spirited New Yorkery in these shots that we propose she become the city’s next celebrity ambassador. She’s like a living “I heart NY” mug. She can just stand in Times Square, high-fiving people.
