Emmy Rossum: Pastels are perfection

Emmy Rossum owns a lot of brooches, but is aware they can sometimes look "old-lady".

While many people turn to more muted tones during the colder months, Emmy says powdery shades actually work really well.

Talking about how she brightens up the dreary days of winter, the 28-year-old actress says her pale blue coat always adds a touch of colour to any outfit.

“It’s unexpected!” she laughed to Us Weekly magazine. “I like to wear mine with slim pants and a bright scarf that picks up a bit of the colour.”

To accessorise her cover up Emmy often scours vintage marketplace Etsy for cool brooches. While some are bargains, the actress has also been known to splash the cash on the pieces of jewellery.

"Some are $3.99, some are $100,” she smiled, adding she keeps her collection of 24 in Tupperware. “They can go old-lady easily, so I like whimsical ones.”

Brooches aren't the only pieces Emmy lusts after, she also has an impressive shoe and bag collection.

For red carpet events the Golden Globe nominee always looks flawless, and wowed at Fox’s Cause For Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular event on Saturday in a pair of Bionda Castana heels.

“I own close to 60 pairs of shoes - it’s a lot,” she added, adding she recently snapped up three pairs of Christian Louboutins at a sale.

When it comes to bags, the bigger the better is Emmy's style mantra.

"[Bally’s tote] fits my scripts. It has enough pockets so I don’t lose my phone, keys and lipstick,” she said.
