Imogen Poots: I don't dress crazily

Imogen Poots would never wear something which isn't an "extension" of her.

The 24-year-old actress has soared into the spotlight with her roles in British movie Filth and rom-com That Awkward Moment, in which she stars alongside Zac Efron.

With her new-found fame comes lots of A-list events. When quizzed about her red carpet style Imogen shared her outlook on fashion.

"I feel like people think I dress like a crazy person. I love being able to know that I'm walking out the door completely like me. I have definitely seen it happen, and never want it to happen, when someone has put me in - what could be a fantastic, piece-of-art dress - something that doesn't fit my bones, something that's not an extension of me," she told Refinery29.

"I'd much rather be wearing a sweater, jeans, and shoes rather than a dress because I'm meant to be in a dress. It's not even about being comfortable. You want to take risks - that's exciting! But, I think you just have to know what you want to do and how you want to do it. That way you'll have no one to blame but yourself."

Imogen has several actresses whose appearances she admires and was happy to discuss who she looks up to and why. She added that she is always truthful when giving an opinion on someone's outfit.

"I always think that Kirsten Dunst looks great. She's been an actress for a long time, and certainly in the public eye for a long time, but I always think she looks fantastic," Imogen smiled.

"It's difficult, really. I'm thinking of a young Julie Christie. I don't know. I'm not going to lie. I'd be honest if I thought someone looked amazing. Oh, I loved that yellow dress Michelle Williams wore, that Vera Wang dress; that was really cool."
