— Mike about Mila when she's feeling insecure about herself
Mila is a young woman with a pale complexion and victorian blonde hair. Her hair is curly and medium lenght. She often wears braided updo's. Occasionally she staightens her hair. She usually wears make up and knows a thing or two about it which she used to help Claire with the debutante parades.
Her style can be described as a bit bohemian, but she also likes the basic style. She prefers wearing heels.
Mila is very kind, and values her friends and friendship in general. She has a reputation of being very strong-willed and determined. Some people unrightfully describe her as a bitch and a boyfriend-stealer, but she's none of those.
Tommy Danvers was Mila's first real boyfriend, back when she was 16 in early sophomore year. The relationship only lasted two months, but was significant for Mila because Tommy was the first guy she had sex with. She mentions Tommy to Dean when he asks her about her sexuality.
