Roxy Olin - The City
Living life in the big city can be a shock for any West Coast girl making the big move, but for some - it's just meant to be! If you've been keeping track of your favorite girls from MTV's hit series The City, then you've met the newest addition to the drama, Roxy Olin.

The City airs on MTV Tuesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT and covers the life of Whitney Port and other characters Erin Kaplan, Olivia Palermo, Samantha Swetra and of course, Roxy. I am personally obsessed! Lucky us, we got the exclusive with the newest addition, Roxy Olin herself!

You and Whitney were friends in high school... now that you've left Cali behind, how is filming changing your life so far? And how are you loving NYC?

My life has changed a lot while doing this. I have moved, I have a roommate, and a full time job! I am loving New's sooooo fun! I’m a real night owl so I’m loving the night life... everything’s open till 4am! I also love walking around, in LA I feel so isolated in my car.

What did you do before joining the cast of "The City"?

Before “The City” I was auditioning, taking classes and being a mom to my dog Benzo.

Luckily for you, Whitney got you a job at People's Revolution. Your assertive attitude with Kelley Cutrone seems to be positive so far - will we see you climbing the ranks?

Well, I think Kelly and I are a lot alike so she takes me under her wing, but at the same time she can be extra hard on me. I’m not good with authority but I’m learning. :)

What is your fashion style? Who are your favorite designers?

I like an edge. I’m a huge fan of leather jackets and an Alexander Wang or vintage T and tights with a serious pair of heels. I love jewelry – that’s one way I've been very blessed, my best friend since I was five and my godmother is Cathy Waterman so I would always play dress up in her office with the most magical jewels you have ever seen...AMAZING!!!!!! My favorite designers are: Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Rag and Bone, Paige Jeans, Isaac Mizrahi, and Michael Kors, Balmain. (Just to name a few;))

What are some of your favorite designs for fall?

I love thigh high boots!

What do you see in your crystal ball for the future for your career/tv?

Hmm... I am so open to wherever the wind blows. I want to do something with jewelry. If I can dream BIG... one day I hope to be in a Quentin Tarantino film. I’m obsessed with him ("True Romance" is my bible). I also hope one day to direct and be behind the camera.
Don't forget to keep up with the girls every Tuesday night after The Hills on MTV!
