But Rodriguez didn’t only prove his talent, but also his sense of style at the awards show. He describes himself as a “shorts guy”, but for the purpose of the event his parents and his sister Raini Rodriguez, who is also an actress, helped him put his outfit together. He went for a mix of high and low fashion and paired his dark grey suit with red (his favorite color) high top Converse, which matched with his red tie. “I love Converse, I wear them all the time,” said Rogriduez. “But high tops, not low tops”, because he doesn’t like it when his socks pop out, he tells RCT.
According to Rodriguez he doesn’t share his character’s fashion style, as he is more the “tie wearing, loose top bottom” type and doesn’t wear ponchos like his character. He usually starts getting ready 30 minutes before an event, because it doesn’t take him long to be red carpet ready, but of course he has the support and help from his family, especially his mom. For Rodriguez it’s all about the perfect mix of high-end fashion and casual clothing, which he embodied at the Young Hollywood Awards show. “You gotta be comfortable, but yet look nice,” he says.
