Jennette McCurdy took a break from preparing for her Go Red for Women fashion show runway to interview with Teen Vogue. Some of the questions she answered include her preparation for the runway, her reaction to Fashion Week, and what it was like to film for her new show: Between.
Teen Vogue: What will you do to prepare for your walk down the Red Dress runway?
Jennette McCurdy: Practice tirelessly for hours on end at the Abby Lee Dance Company.
Teen Vogue: How did you pick your Nicole Miller dress?
Jennette: I love Nicole Miller as a designer, so when the opportunity arose to wear something designed by her, I was thrilled.
Teen Vogue: What makes you most nervous about the runway show?
Jennette: Not tripping.
Teen Vogue: Our condolences for losing your mother to cancer this past year. How do you think she would feel to see you walk the Red Dress runway for such an important cause?
Jennette: Thank you. I know for a fact she would be so proud. First and foremost, she always wanted me to give to others. She had the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever met, so this cause would ring especially true to her.
Teen Vogue: We know that your upcoming show Between will be quite a departure from Sam & Cat. How will your costumes be different, too? What was it like filming such different subject matter?
Jennette: Lots of my clothes in Sam & Cat were super bright, but for Between I wore primarily neutrals and our designer mixed up a lot of different textures, which I loved. We shot in the snow a lot, so I had a really great checkered pea coat that was one of my staple pieces throughout the show. As for the subject matter, it was a lot more emotionally draining in a really good way. When my friends ask how it was to shoot, I tell them it was therapy for three months!
Teen Vogue: And what are you looking forward to seeing most this Fashion Week?
Jennette: I’ve never been, so I feel like a kid in a candy store. I’m so excited for all the different shows and events and to dress sharp to all of them.
