Ginnifer Goodwin doesn't fixate on designers

Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer Goodwin says designers are secondary when it comes to choosing clothes.

The actress primarily cares about whether or not she is drawn to a dress.

Ginnifer knows what styles suit her and so selects pieces she likes, rather than looking at the designer name on the label.

"I really don't go for a dress based on a designer," Ginnifer told People. "Whoever designed it is usually secondary to me, and how I feel about the dress itself [is first]."

Although she is often spotted in creations by Monique Lhuillier and Jenny Packham, Ginnifer insists this is not an intentional move. In fact the Once Upon a Time star claims she is always looking out for fresh fashion talent.

"I often wear new designers," Ginnifer explained. "There are some newer but esteemed designers like Jonathan Saunders - who I've been wearing a lot recently - and Erdem, which I really love."

Ginnifer looked stunning in a 1960s cute baby blue shift dress for a pre-Emmy Awards party on Friday.

The Jenny Packham gown she wore to the Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party in West Hollywood suited her perfectly.

The crystal studded powder-blue shift dress with black sleeves, bejewelled cuffs and matching sparkling collaring, suited her elf-like features down to a tee.

Ginnifer styled her dress with Jimmy Choo 'Taste' sandals, Dana Rebecca Designs earrings, a House of Lavande cocktail ring and a small quilted Marc Jacobs clutch. Flawless make-up and her signature pixie crop completed the look.

For the Emmy Awards on Sunday, Ginnifer went for an eye catching orange Monique Lhuillier gown.
