Name: Tori Anderson
Tori Anderson is the perfect girl-next-door. Her effortless charm and genuine niceness is just one of the reasons this Edmonton-born actress is destined to be Canada’s next sweetheart. She’s currently starring alongside the dangerously handsome Joshua Sasse in CW’s No Tomorrow which picked up a nomination for the People’s Choice Award for Favourite New TV Drama.
Describe your personal style in three words:
I’m a bit of a chameleon – grunge, bohemian and loose.
Where do you think you got your sense of style? What influences you?
Music, muses and movies. Every era entices me in some way or another.
Which designers dominate your wardrobe?
Free People, Rag & Bone, band t-shirts, vintage finds, and plaid shirts from my dad’s closet.
Canadian style is…
Diverse – anything you want it to be.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe and what’s the story behind it? Where did you find it? How much did it cost? Why is it your favourite?
This vintage vest from the 70’s that was in my Mom’s costume room. It is black suede and embroidered with vines and flowers. Just looking at it makes my heart happy. One of the best parts about it was also that it happened to be free.
What are your top three beauty/grooming products you love right now?
• IT Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream – It is AH-MAZING! I use it as a concealer.
• Oi Oil Davines – Everything I wished Moroccanoil would be.
• Ouidad Deep Treatment – Restores my hair after every use.
• Charlotte Tilbury Blush
What top trends do you love for Fall?
Velvet, Knee High Boots, Pantsuits and lace. Always lace.
Favourite store/retailer in the world and why?
The Bay and Nordstrom. The Bay has amazing sales and Nordstrom carries great lines. Both are almost a one stop shop.
What is the best city in the world for shopping and what are the must-visit stores?
Toronto. Shop the Ossington strip and you will find a huge range from high end retailers to vintage shops. Check out Queen Street West.
Who (living or dead) would you want to have dinner with? Where would you take them? And what would you want to talk to them about?
Katherine Hepburn. The house I grew up in for a home cooked meal. The state of women’s roles in the film and TV world and how we can continue to encourage change.
You have a blank wall and need to find a piece of art to fill the space. What would you hang?
Tom Thompson. His work is distinctly Canadian. My aunt Lynn Malin, the way she uses colours brightens up any room. I have obsessed over her work my whole life.
