Eris Baker Talks Embracing Her Own ‘Black Girl Magic’ Through Fashion

In this installment of our monthlong salute to fashion, we revisit our April 2019 interview with fashionista Baker, one of the stars of the hit series ‘This Is Us.’ The show’s fourth season premieres tonight at 9:00 ET on NBC.

This Is Us actress Eris Baker, 13, is phenomenal on-screen, but could the budding star also be ready to take on the fashion world?

During our sit-down with the precocious teenager, Baker shared that she loves expressing her own unique brand of Black Girl Magic through fashion.

“Sometimes, I want to wear rocker boots with a cool little dress. Other days, I want to be just regular, straight girly-girl and just rock all pink. I just define myself as really different.”

She added, “I love fashion. It’s just a way I can embrace yourself with clothes, and it’s so much fun.”
