Get to know Ashley Benson behind the scenes of her Seventeen cover photoshoot.
“When I was younger, I went through a lot of different phases. One day I’d be punk rock, and the next I would be tomboyish, and then I would be really girly. I was so weird.”
“I’ve never had my heart broken. And I don’t want to have my heart broken. I’m afraid of it. Even when I break someone else’s heart, I’m really upset about it. And I’m not even feeling half of what they are…”
“I love good old-fashioned black or white Converse. I have a few pairs. And they are all really dirty. I can’t have clean Converse—I go in the dirt and run around!”
“There are so many girls who message me and say, ‘Hanna’s helped me quit my eating disorder and know that it’s okay to look the way I do.’ It’s a really good thing to show on air—that you need to be comfortable in your own skin.”
Just A Normal Girl“Everything I do is unfabulous. I’m the most normal person. I love walking everywhere, and going to hole-in-the-wall places, like nail shops, because they do the best job. And I go to vintage stores rather than high-end boutiques, because I like to dress different from other people.”
On The Edge
“I like edgy but classic looks — like Chanel mixed with Alexander McQueen. My personal style is edgier. My closet is just black, gray, and white. I’m more comfortable in darker colors and leather jackets.”
