Gabriella Wilde likes to dress "simply" when not in the limelight.

The British actress began her career as a model after being spotted at just 14 by Naomi Campbell.

She worked for labels including L.K. Bennett and Lacoste before landing her breakthrough movie role in 2010 movie The Three Musketeers.

While she is renowned for her stunning red carpet outfits Gabriella prefers basic pieces for everyday occasions.

"I'm usually a bit scruffy. I like to be more dressed down - I wear a lot of black and go for simple, clean-cut pieces," she told latest edition of UK magazine Glamour. "I like anything quite masculine; Céline and The Row are my favourite labels."

The 24-year-old beauty may be confident in her own style but she does look up to one particular person in awe. She loves British actress Tilda Swinton's dress sense and how confident the 52-year-old star is when choosing quirkier ensembles for events.

"I admire people who don't necessarily dress 'on-trend', but have their own style that is specific to them," she explained. "Tilda wears some pieces that are really out there - but it's always thought out, almost in a conceptual way. I think that's very cool."

Gabriella previously spoke about how much she loves to recycle clothes and often turns to the vintage wardrobe of her mother, former model Vanessa Mary Theresa.

However, with one younger sisters and five half-siblings she joked it's hard to keep an eye on where her favourite items go.

"It's unwise to leave clothes around because one or other of my sisters are bound to borrow them!" she laughed to British newspaper The Daily Mail
