Jenna Ortega is quickly becoming a name we all recognize. Whether you have seen her in horror movies like X (2022) and Scream (2022), or you have seen her in her new Netflix Original Wednesday, you have likely heard her name.
With her recent horror movie and television roles, we have seen a shift in Jenna’s wardrobe, and let me tell you, we are here for it. Let's look at how she embraces this new, darker, more mature style.
A Style Breakdown
So how did Jenna’s style evolve into what it is today? Here’s a quick breakdown.
Jenna Ortega’s Style in the Early Days
Before we had the iconic fashionista we have today, we had a young actress frequently featured in Disney Channel shows like Bizaardvark and Stuck in the Middle. During this phase of her career, she had a decidedly different style.
Jenna’s early looks were bright and fun, as you would expect from a Disney starlet. She wore cute, age-appropriate outfits that were still stunning on the red carpets.
In her younger days, Jenna seemed to prefer a more casual look, with many of her looks featuring pants and shorts.
Jenna Ortega’s Fashion Evolution
As Jenna’s Disney days were coming to a close, she started experimenting more and more with her style. She began to wear more dresses, and her looks strayed away from the typical “Disney Look.”
She was still relatively young when she began making changes to her wardrobe, so she kept her outfits age-appropriate, with nothing too revealing.
The “I do care and u should too” outfit
One of our favorite looks from Jenna was when she used her Radio Disney red carpet outfit to fire back at the first lady.
Melania Trump was spotted before this event in Texas, where migrant children were being separated from their parents wearing a jacket that said, “I really don’t care, do u?” on it.
At only 15 years old, Jenna chose to use her look to counter the other woman’s disrespect and rocked it!
She attended the event in a plaid 2 piece and a jacket that said, “I do care, and u should too,” in defense and support of all of the families in Texas.
We loved this moment.

Jenna Ortega’s New Look
But our favorite part of Jenna’s new look is the fact that you can see the influence these new roles have on her style.
In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jenna wore this absolutely stunning dress. This dress is a definite departure from her previous style.
We love the sexy slit, cutouts, and the lace she is wearing underneath. Overall it is a stunning look that is a welcomed departure from her younger style. This look really takes Jenna from a child star to a power woman in the public eye.
