With an Academy Award winning debut at Hollywood at the age of 11, Anna Paquin has quite a lot of experience in the business, and a lot of knowledge that other actresses lack. “I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out what looks good for my body for fittings, and I’ve taken notes. I’m 5’4″ and change! I know I will never be like [Gisele Bundchen], and I also know I will never be a hip-less, ass-less supermodel.” Anna says that ballgowns aren’t her thing, so she prefers rocking the red carpet in edgier, darker designs that suit her. With a lot of practice, “I’ve learned how to dress for my shape, and I have to be able to sit, stand, walk properly and shake hands in an outfit without feeling confined.” It seems to be working, because Paquin and Chris Meloni are on the cover of TV Guide Magazine’s summer edition. The actress has also been nominated for Teen Choice Awards’ TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, along with True Blood, the show that made her shine.
