Cameron Monaghan on Dressing as a Red Head

Cameron Monaghan of Showtime’s Shameless fame, fired things up on the red carpet at this year’s Young Hollywood Awards. The red headed actor has been on the Hollywood scene from an early age, winning a Young Artist Award back in 2005 for his recurring role on the show Malcolm in the Middle.

At the Awards, Monaghan gave some insight on how to dress as a red head, mentioning he’s “learned  you can’t really wear red or orange, just [cause] it’s kind of competing with the hair.” However, that’s not the only thing he avoids in his wardrobe. According to Monaghan, his character Ian on the show Shameless is,  “actually the only character on the show that wears plaids and stripes”, so he tries to avoid those patterns in his personal dress.
