Cory Kennedy, Cobra Snake "It" Girl, And Her Life After Rehab (VIDEO)

Cory Kennedy may have recently fallen from grace but she is back, sober and ready to start her career again with a newfound sense of professionalism. Kennedy was an Internet "It" girl in the late aughts. Made famous by her boyfriend's site "The Cobra Snake," she was a fixture at parties, in Nylon magazine and in DJ booths around the world. Her ragamuffin style (think piled-on necklaces, unkempt hair and torn tights) garnered her a legion of fans and had people all over Myspace mimicking her lazy-chic style.

The Los Angeles native, who has since lived in London and New York, recently invited Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU into her home to meet the new Cory Kennedy -- and trust us, she is not the same girl you may have seen on Page Six a few years ago.

Since her 21st birthday, Kennedy has been to rehab, started carrying clutches and become more concerned about her posture (how ladylike!). Although the party girl we once knew may be gone, her daring fashion choices are still signature Kennedy. A lover of all things comfortable, she now sports shell tops from the 1950s and structured black dresses (instead of T-shirts and cut-offs) -- but don't worry, her ensembles still contain remnants of the old Cory, like wrap-around bracelets and disheveled hair. Although her closet may be a testament to her clotheshorse tendencies, she wears every item until it breaks -- literally (her jeans are torn up because of nearly constant wear). Her metamorphosis from an Internet sensation to a mature DJ has not been easy, but in the process she has become more aware of what she wants and how to get there -- and this is a Cory we falling in love with all over again.

Watch the video above to find out why Cory wears white tube socks with flats.
