Liv Tyler: I love my designer pals

Film star Liv Tyler loved how her mother Bebe Buell dressed like Madonna before the singer became famous.

Actress Liv Tyler feels grateful to have formed close friendships with designers like Stella McCartney, as she can rely on them to make her look good.

The 38-year-old star doesn't hold back when it comes to dazzling at star-studded events, most recently wowing in a simple black dress-and-top combo at the Lunchbox Fund Anniversary Benefit Dinner in New York in October (15). It's a collaborative process when it comes to choosing what to wear in the spotlight, as Liv has particular fashion stars she turns to.

"I'll ask Stella or Jack (McCollough) and Lazaro (Hernandez) from Proenza Schouler or Givenchy," she told about deciding upon her red carpet ensembles. "That's one of the things I feel so grateful for, having been in the business for so long and being able to have these close, personal relationships. You can rely on them and they can rely on you."

It isn't just those in the industry Liv looks to for style inspiration; certain friends of hers "look great in everything" and she admires their confidence. She also cites her grandmother as someone with incredibly elegant taste and the actress' mother, former model Bebe Buell, is a big influence too, with her rock'n'roll aesthetic.

"She had such amazing style," Liv, whose father is Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler, noted of her mum. "It was a great moment - I was born in '77, so it was the '80s and she had such a mix of things... amazing gloves and corsets. It was what we think of as how Madonna dressed at the time, but it was before Madonna. As I was just a little girl, it was so fun!"
