Calvert Collins, 27

Reporter, 8 News Now

Style icons: Grace Kelly, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Middleton.

What she’s wearing now: Ralph Lauren dress, vintage jacket, BCBG slingbacks, Target earrings, vintage necklace and bracelets, and a Tag Heuer watch.

Being in the public eye day in and day out is a high-pressure situation, but Collins masters the balance between on-camera and off-camera dressing. “I rarely buy anything just for ‘play’ because I have to keep my work attire fresh. My personal fashion philosophy is ‘classic chic,’ so I love dresses, particularly anything in bright colors with ruffles, or any fun embellishments,” she says. “When I go to a cocktail party or an event, the hemlines are a few inches shorter than anything I’d wear to work.”
