Bella of the Ball

Name: Bella Heathcote

Age: 26

Hometown: Melbourne, Australia

How you know her: She played Victoria Winters/Josette DuPres in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows (2012).

Upcoming project: Derick Martini's The Curse of Downers Grove (2014). "It's my first gig as the lead. My character is somewhat of a smart-ass and doesn't take shit from anyone—a bit like I was as a teenager."

Personal style: "I have a go-to uniform of a white shirt, black jeans, and black ballet flats."

First Chanel memory: "My mom had one of the classic quilted leather bags. It was the first bag that I fell in love with."

On becoming an actress: "I started acting when I was 12. I didn't know I wanted to make it a career until I was 18. I tried to talk myself into a more stable career but kept coming back to it."

Currently coveting: "A really simple pair of Chanel biker boots."

On her playlist: "I just bought Lorde's EP. She is incredible. I recently saw Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and have been listening to Bon Jovi since I last sang karaoke."

Workout regimen: "My close friend in L.A. is a personal trainer. I go to her a few times a week, but we end up gossiping more than working out."

Top (worn as dress), price upon request, bracelets, $4,050 each, Chanel.
