Aside from being one of the most hysterical people I have ever met in my life - Lynn Andrews also wins at life with her incredible style. Lynn is a quad-threat aka a Public Figure/Actor/Singer/Songwriter, who recently moved to Los Angeles after completing the national tour of ANNIE where she played the infamous role of Miss Hannigan for over 1,000 performances (and got stage-doored by Maya Rudolph mind you!)
I met Lynn while working on the national tour of Annie and was immediately so impressed with her comedic timing but also her ability to work so many amazing outfits and looks all within two adorably charming DVF suitcases. She was like Mary Poppins with those suitcases - every day I saw her I was like “how the hell did she pull that off with our luggage restrictions?!”
I had to ask her to share her secrets and thank God she did. I feel like we can all learn a thing or two from Lynn Andrews - and personal style is a good place to start.
