When it comes to her wardrobe, Monte Carlo star Katie Cassidy follows one simple style rule: "I'll wear anything as long as it looks good and feels comfortable."
Of course, the 5-foot-7 beauty (who dates NHL player Jarret Stoll) does make an exception for her beloved sky-high stilettos: "I am a really big advocate of heels. I think they make women feel more confident — and confidence is sexy!"
Wearing her favorite pair of peep-toes, the self-confessed jeans lover — who lists Sienna Miller and Grace Kelly as her fashion icons — arrived at Us Weekly's photo shoot in New York City June 28, ditched her denim, and modeled this season's hottest dress trends. Check out her transformation and score ideas to liven up your own summer wardrobe. (Clockwise from top left)
