The Select Guest
MEET | KATIE NEHRA
Featured 4.24-4.30.17 | I want to be Katie Nehra when I grow up. For real. She's gorgeous, super accomplished (screenwriter! actor! fashion designer!) and, wait for it, whip smart. Oh, and she lives in LA, which triples her cool factor in my book. A political junkie who spends as much time watching CNN as she does Dave Chappelle, Nehra hates bullshit and has a knack for telling it like it is — a refreshing departure from most of the multi-hyphenates out there in Hollywood. Her selects are a reflection of her personality: original, upbeat and authentic. Welcome to Katie's week.

You can currently catch Katie in Mr. Right opposite Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, RZA and Tim Roth. She plays the confident best friend and roommate to Anna Kendrick’s character. Mr. Right closed the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival with Peter Debruge of Variety saying that Katie “showed Cameron Diaz comic potential” in his review.

In 2006 Katie began the SIMONE collection. What started out as a small collection of dresses, named after her fashionable friends, has now become a cult custom jacket line. Including leather, suede and varsity jackets, which are made in the USA. SIMONE has been featured in numerous publications including VOGUE, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Nylon and Lucky.
