Paula Patton: My mind changes all the time

Paula Patton says she changes her mind “all the time” about what clothes she likes to wear.

The 39-year-old actress looks stunning in a new ad campaign for American designer Ellen Tracy.

In the shot, Paula showcases her lithe figure in ensembles including a pink shift dress with peplum detail, and a loose navy pair of trousers and matching vest.

Speaking about the campaign, Paula admits that when it comes to dressing herself, she sometimes finds it difficult to make up her mind about an outfit.

“My mind changes all the time,” she told “Sometimes I like things if they’re splashy and full of color and sort of a risk. I guess I dress based on my mood and what feels best on.”

But one thing Paula won’t be doing anytime soon is looking back at old pictures of herself. In fact, the actress admits, she had “no idea what was going on” in the fashion world when she was a youngster.

“I wouldn’t even want to look back at my old pictures, I have no idea what was going on!” she said. “But at the time you know you think you’re doing the right thing. You don’t ever want to leave the house and not like what you’re wearing so I guess whenever you do do it, you think it works. And then you look back and you might think differently!”

Paula rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to her day-to-day outfits or her red carpet looks. So when the opportunity arose to collaborate with Ellen Tracy, she jumped at the chance.

“What I really love about the clothing: It’s classic clothing that fits a woman very well,” Paula said. “It’s affordably priced. But you can embellish it however you choose to do it or not. If you want to go really classic and simple with it you can. If you want to add anything to make it a bit quirky or edgier it has that capability. That’s what appeals to me.”
