When it comes to picking a purse, Emily Kinney follows instincts, not trends. “I’m sorry I’m not very ‘label’!” confesses the former Walking Dead star and indie-pop singer, 30. “I don’t even know what brand this is. I like it because it fits a lot!” The actress, a member of WhyHunger’s Artists Against Hunger & Poverty, lets Us peek inside her Aritzia satchel.
True to Your School
“I only studied theater at NYU for one semester, but I still use this purple key chain for my house keys. I left college when I started getting auditions.”
La Vie en Rouge
“When I’m performing at a show, I almost always wear a red Nars lip pencil. It stays on, long after I’ve left the stage!”
“This teal Moleskine notebook is really tiny, so it fits in my bag superwell. When I have downtime, I’ll fill it up with lyrics, grocery lists or just reminders to myself.”
“My fans know I like coffee, so they’ll come up to me with a gift card and say, ‘Go get a cup!’ I’ll order an Americano with steamed milk.”
“I use the app Rx Breakup on my iPhone. It has activities to help you deal with change. I used it when I went through a breakup a while ago, but also when I left The Walking Dead!”
