“My character True Jackson is all about fashion and designing clothes, and what’s so cool about this line is that now kids can actually wear similar things they see on the show,” says Palmer, pictured here at the Lodge in New York City at the close of the Mad Style fall runway show.

“My style is pretty different from my character True Jackson—she’s very preppy and I’m a little bit more edgy. Some of my fashion icons are Rihanna and Kate Moss, but, of course, I dress a lot younger than they do,” says Palmer.
