From Converse to Chanel: Bono's Daughter Becomes A Style Trendsetter

Posted on:

Growing up is about finding yourself, and becoming the person you are meant to be can make it more of one big awkward moment, especially when it comes to the way you dress. Everyone goes through it, even actress and daughter of U2's Bono, Eve Hewson.

Starring as Nurse Lucy in Steven Soderbergh's small-screen drama, The Knick, Hewson has surely been making a name for herself away from simply being known as Bono's daughter. She explains how drastically here sense of style has changed since she was a young girl to now and makes light about it.

She recently shared with, "I probably wasn't the most fashionable girl, but I was a pretty cool boy." Throughout her childhood years, Hewson's fashion sense was very tomboyish; hoodies, sneakers, the whole shebang. It wasn't until she was done with the school uniform days and became a little older, that she noticed an evolution in her attire and taste. She started taking an interest in her mother and sister's more feminine clothing and was quickly straying from her days of Converse sneakers and her sister's hand-me-downs.

Hewson has lived in New York for six years now, and during that time she attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and has altered her style some more.

"When you walk around New York you just want to wear the cool leather jacket with a beanie," she says. Aside from the usual New York style of black pieces and leather jackets, Hewson admits to enjoying her work attire which consists of having to wear what most women dread, the discomforting corset.

When not working, Hewson enjoys attending fashion shows, in which she will usually observe and point out pieces she would wear and could essentially fit into her every day attire. Goes to show how unpredictable and ever-changing one's sense of fashion can be.
