The fifth and final season of the hit Freeform series The daring type premieres on Wednesday May 26th and it was a very entertaining race. Centered on three young women trying to succeed in the fashion and media industries – Jane (Katie Stevens), Sutton (Meghann Fahy) and Kat (Aisha Dee) – the show is tailor-made for Gossip Girl and the devil wears Prada Fans. It’s full of style, soapy drama, and sexy people – in other words, all the makings of a hit show. No wonder it lasted so long.
Even still, Stevens is blown away by the popularity of the show. “When you get to five seasons, that in itself is so special,” she told me over the phone in early May. “Few shows have five seasons. The bond we’ve created – not only between me, Meghann and Aisha – but our team, the writers and everyone who works on the show, is simply the best. They are some of the best people I have ever met. I think we’ve caught lightning in a bottle when it comes to the connection we’ve all formed.
Fans have also bonded with the characters, especially Jane, Sutton, and Kat. Stevens tells me that she thinks viewers will be happy with where the show leaves these women, both professionally and personally. “In the end, I think everyone will be happy,” she said. “I’m really happy with where the girls are going. I think they end up exactly where they should be.”
Wherever Jane ends up, however, she will find herself without two pairs of her favorite shoes. It’s because Stevens caught them from the Bold characters closet – which, relatable. She revealed this during CharmThe last opus of Your Fave’s Faves. Read on below to find out which ones, as well as Stevens’ favorite swimwear, sweatpants, and snacks upon his return to the movies.
The last thing I bought
I bought six swimsuits because I am going to Mexico. They are from Somerfield Swimming and also from the line of Emily Ratajkowski, Inamorata. One of my new favorite bikinis comes from there. He’s gathered in the chest and has those tight little stockings because I have to get a tan.
My favorite pair of shoes right now
I normally wear sneakers if I’m not going anywhere, but I took a bunch of shoes from Jane’s closet The daring type. I have two favorite pairs: Christian Louboutin black combat boots that have a small heel and a nice Valentino pump. I’m just looking for a place to wear them now. I will wear them at home if I have to!
The sweatpants I’ve been through the past few months
I have five drawers of sweatpants! I have a pair of pastel tie-dye sweatshirts from Max Roux. They are super comfortable. Also, these Tribe Kelley Buttery Sweatshirts. These are the softest, most comfortable sweatshirts I have ever put on my body.
My favorite pair of jeans
They are called the ex-boyfriend jeans of Denim Forum. These are great because they’re tight where they’re meant to be but loose where they’re meant to be. I have two pairs: one with holes and one without.
My favorite product in my self-care routine
I actually have one of those things – it looks like a sleeping bag, but it’s an infrared sauna bed blanket. You open it and you have to go in with socks, long pants, a long shirt and you set a timer. I’m literally lying in there and sweating. The sensation you get when you sweat for 40 minutes – you watch Netflix, time flies – is euphoric. I work out too, but there’s something very spa about having this thing in my house. I got it from this place called HigherDOSE.
The scent that makes me feel amazing
The beauty product that completes my going out look
The faster I can put on makeup and look good, the better. I started to use Nudestix products, and I love them because the foundation is very light. Then you have these cream blushes and contours, and they don’t leave you looking super shiny. So sometimes I’ll just do that and let the good looks show through. I also use the Coco & Eve self-tanner. You put it on, it develops over two hours, and you can wash it off to have a healthy shine. It’s the only self-tanner I’ve ever used that isn’t orange and won’t come off.
The TV shows that currently obsess me
I’m late for the game, but I just started to watch The stewardess. I am obsessed! It is so good. I’m always on those thought-provoking thriller-type shows; The stewardess is that, in addition there is a comic aspect. Kaley Cuoco is amazing in there.
The snacks I get when I go to the movies again
First of all, my own popcorn, because I won’t be sharing my first time. I’ve been through so many candy phases in the movies. I used to take Milk Duds because it was my dad’s thing, then it changed to Cookie Dough Bites. Also, if you are in a place that has Dibs ice cream bites, it is a game changer. And then you have to get a Coke Light! But the problem is, my snacks go fast. I feel like I’ve already finished my candy by the fifth minute of the movie.
