Bella Thorne, recipient of 2013 Industry Dance Awards Role Model of the Year award, continues to shine and set a positive example for her audience with her film work and overall radiant presence wherever she is spotted on the celebrity scene.

Mostly popularly-known for her starring role on Disney Channel’s sitcom “Shake It Up,” the 16-year-old actress/dancer/singer is no stranger to comedy, which is why fans are excited to see Thorne make her studio film debut in 2014 family flick “Blended” starring the dynamic rom-com duo of  Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.  Stuck in her awkward stage, Thorne’s character is Sandler’s teen daughter rocking a short-haired bob that brings a teen’s most embarrassing moments to life, like that one time when dad barged in during a bra-stuffing attempt. Critics predict that her vulnerable and down-to-earth role is exactly what will push Thorne to be Hollywood’s next “It” girl. This isn’t the only project coming down the pipeline. Later this year, our reigning “Role Model of the Year” will also star in “Big Sky,” “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” and the horror flick “Home Invasion.”

Not only is this starlet doing her thing on the big screen, Thorne is setting fashion trends as she makes statements at New York fashion week and continues to rock killer ensembles on the red carpet. Check out these articles that cover the rising fashionista:


On the other end of the spectrum, this young talent is aware of the power of going all-natural and knows exactly how to play down the glam. Thorne confidently step out on the style scene with simplicity and bare beauty- another reason she is such an amazing role model to the teen audience. See articles here:

With this type of momentum, Bella Thorne is definitely a force to reckoned with in the Hollywood scene. (And we’re happy to say that ‘we called it’)
