Bella Thorne: Aspiring Fashion Designer!

She’s a natural beauty with plenty of on-camera charisma to spare, and Bella Thorne is looking to supplement her acting pursuits with more modeling and design work.

Early on, the “Blended” star found she had a knack for posing so she started doing various gigs here and there. She told WWD, “Nobody wanted to be friends. They called me ‘the pretty dumb girl.’”

However, the joke is definitely on Thorne’s naysayers as she’s one of the hottest up-and-coming stars of her generation.

Meanwhile, Bella, whose father is Cuban, and her sister have designed a collection of prom gowns and special event dresses for teens, with a nod to the Latin American tradition of “quinceaneras.”

She explained, “It’s such a big deal to turn 15 in the Latin community. It’s looked at as just as special as your wedding day.”
