Name: Kelly McLeay
Relationship status: Single
Hometown: Omaha, Neb.
Time in Lawrence: Three years
Occupation: Full-time student studying accounting.
Dream job: I’d like to be an account for a fashion magazine.
What were you doing when scouted? I was at the business career fair.
Describe your style: I would say fairly conservative and classy. My fashion icon is Audrey Hepburn.
Fashion trends you love: Skorts are coming back for women and I really like them! I’m also very into vintage, which is my favorite style — anything older has more character. I love A-lines (skirts) and things from the ’50s.
Fashion trends you hate: I’m not a huge fan of Converse, but some people can pull them off. I’m not a huge fan of them and overalls. I don’t think they should come back!
Fashion influences: A lot of them actually came from my older sister. She’s five years older than me so I was always growing up behind her and always watching her. I’ve been very inspired by her because she was always ahead of the curve. And then there’s Audrey Hepburn: I love the flair of her.
What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I would like to see girls looking nicer when they go to class. I’m kind of sick of the sweat pants, Nike shorts and T-shirts. I wish people would dress nicer and more presentable.
Less of? Less workout clothes when you’re not working out!
Tattoos or piercings: None.
Whom do people say you look like? I have gotten Mila Kunis a lot. I just got someone else recently. I can’t remember her name. I’ve been approached numerous times and have been asked by people to take pictures because I look like her friend. I don’t know what it is.
What type of music do you unwind to? I like oldies. I like Elton John and I also love the Doors.
Tell us a secret: Bruno Mars is one of my guilty pleasures!
