Andi Eigenmann wears many hats. She’s a daughter to two iconic actors, sister to a multi-talented and genetically blessed bunch of siblings, mother to a tremendously charming and rambunctious little girl, and a quality actress who finds herself promoting her latest movie, Ma’ Rosa at Cannes Film Festival as we speak.
What many tend to overlook though, is Andi’s concrete sense of style, which reflects her colorful, confident, and rebellious persona so seamlessly—it’s like second skin. She’s a massive collector of crystals and sunglasses, the type who wears print-on-print, prefers sneakers over stilettos any day, excitedly whips out a vintage pantsuit (“It was my mom’s in the ’80s,” she says), and surprises us with a closet-full of eye-catching textures and patterns. She turns sentimental over a few items (which I won’t disclose, dear reader—I don’t kiss and tell), and shares anecdotes about them, breaking her beautiful but tough celebrity shell and giving me a tiny glimpse into her vulnerable soul.
What’s keeping you busy these days?
