Ok, we’re calling it: Riverdale star Camila Mendes is officially the cutest.
Camila took to Instagram yesterday to debut her new “Reformed Mean Girl” t-shirt and we need it ASAP! Not only is it super cute, but it also benefits the Kind Campaign, an international organization that brings awareness to girl-on-girl bullying.
According to Camila’s Insta post, she actually helped design the shirt as well, which features Veronica Lodge, who is, of course, a reformed mean girl herself.
Mendes previously told Teen Vogue,
“For whatever reason, Veronica in the past had some darkness, she was a little mean and a little spoiled, and circumstances changed her.”
By the time we meet Veronica in Riverdale, she’s set on taking down other mean girls like Cheryl Blossom and standing up for the little guy. According to Camila, Veronica decided to change her ways after her father goes to jail and her world gets rocked.
“There was a lack of consequences in her childhood, and that’s kind of what lead her to be a little bit of a snob, a little bit entitled. I think the circumstances with her family brought them together. Usually in these situations, these mean girls, there’s something going on at home.”
In season 2, Veronica’s dad is set to return (hello, Mark Conseulos!), so we’ll see if Veronica is able to keep up her good girl ways once her family life starts returning to normal. Of course, nothing with Veronica is ever normal so we doubt it!
