SYDNEY’S FAVES: These are a couple of of Sydney Sweeney’s favorite (Miu Miu) things:

“There’s a sweatshirt that’s white with sparkles — I like sweatshirts, so I’m obsessive about that. And there’s this cute pink set that has bottoms and a top and a sweater, and it’s fuzzy and soft. It’s really cute.”

“I like Miu Miu,” added the “Euphoria” star, peppy despite flying in from Rome the day before. “[Miu Miu] has embodied who I’m, from wanting to decorate up or simply chill. So there’s numerous pieces that I feel can be super cute for an evening out or an evening in.”

Sweeney, only on the town for the night, was heading home to spend the vacations together with her family. Afterward, she’s headed back to Rome to start shooting her next film, “Immaculate.”

“It’s a horror film, and it’s a couple of nun who goes to a recent convent — with an unexpected twist,” said Sweeney, who’s starring in and producing the movie, which is directed by Michael Mohan.

“I like it,” enthused Sweeney of her deeper level of involvement with the project. “I’m attending to construct out all the world as an alternative of just the character. I actually love putting on those creative shoes, and being within the discussions and making decisions.” — KRISTEN TAUER
