Where I’m at with my style right now
Even though I love fashion and I love watching people who are effortlessly fashionable, and I would love to be one of them, I just find it daunting. I always end up reverting to jeans and a T-shirt while I envy people from the sidelines. I resort to what’s comfortable.

How I learned to stop worrying and love getting dressed
Since I started playing Alexis (who is quite the opposite of me), I have had my eyes opened to different designers and possibilities and ways of carrying myself. My co-star, Dan Levy, makes fun of me all the time. He’ll say, “How do you not know Derek Lam? How do you not know Isabel Marant?” Fashion is still pretty bizarre to me in a lot of ways. But one thing I have taken from my character on the show is taking more pride in how I look going out of the house.

My secret source of style inspiration
I am a bit of a lurker. It’s really creepy. Especially if I’m in New York or any glamorous city, I find myself compiling my own inconspicuous street style blog that only exists in my phone. I take pictures of people who are beautiful, stylish or looking exceptionally confident. I keep a little collection of ideas and inspiration for myself.
