Amy Schumer: 'I dress like a hobo'

The Trainwreck star is a huge fan of Old Navy brand clothing.

Comedian Amy Schumer prefers to dress like a "newly-homeless person" because she values comfort over style.

Although the Trainwreck star fixes up fabulously for the red carpet, her everyday go-to outfits are far less chic.

“I would describe my personal style as a newly-homeless person,” she joked to People.com. “Just comfortable and ready to sleep anywhere. I demand comfort at all times.”

Amy stars in a new commercial for casual clothing brand Old Navy's Black Friday sale and admits signing up for the project was an absolute no-brainer, because her closet is filled with staple items from the label, and she also appreciates the fact that brand designers create clothes for all body types.

“I think it’s great for women to learn how they can dress to feel great," she explains. "I’m not friends with anyone who looks like these mannequins."

"I found out with (stylist) Leesa Evans that clothes off the rack don’t really fit anyone, but with Old Navy stuff you know you’re going to be comfortable," she adds. "You can get it for a friend and it’s not taking a huge risk.

“(Old Navy clothing) will fit. Or if it doesn’t fit, it won’t not fit in a way that will make you start crying."

Old Navy's Fight Night Black Friday sale kicks off on 23 November (16) and Amy will most certainly be one of the many people buying clothing from the label's website.

“I’d just like to buy my niece huge hats and scarves, and wrap her up like a little package!" she gushed.
