Grace Phipps' Teen Beach 2 styles are seriously our favorite: she gets to wear some of the prettiest retro-themed styles ever for the Disney Channel Original Movie! When we caught up with the actress ahead of the movie's big debut tomorrow, we asked her about her favorite costume her character Lela gets to wear over the course of the franchise.
"My favorite thing to wear is still the pink outfit, the two pieces and the pink jacket," Grace tells TWIST exclusively. "I get a new pink jacket this time but it’s a much more of a powerful pink, it’s a different pink. It’s good the jacket transforms from the beginning to end – it kind of shows her going from baby pink to like a fuchsia which is still pink. She’s still pink but she’s developed."
While Grace's costumes are cute and effortlessly cool styles we'd love to wear ourselves, her hair and makeup look actually take a ton of time – and energy! – to create!
"It’s a long hair and makeup [session] for this job," Grace explains. "Part of it has to be, [filming in Puerto Rico,] everything goes slower on the island – it’s just like the island time thing. It’s leisurely, it’s not like 'everybody go we have to be on set now!' It usually [takes] about an hour for makeup and an hour for hair, which is weird on early calls because you go in [to get styled] and it’s dark [outside] and you walk out and it’s morning time and you’re like, 'alright this feels more like it!'"
That's so cool!
