Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom believes having a natural sense of style is a "super power".

Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom admits fashion has always been a "source of stress" for her.

The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend actress certainly didn't look like she struggles with style at the Golden Globes on Sunday (10Jan16). Wearing a custom green Christian Siriano gown with an off-the-shoulder finish, the star looked like she should have picked up a prize for best dressed alongside her Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy gong.

But while it might look like sartorial success comes easy, Rachel insists it's a different story entirely. "I'm learning very quickly," she told elle.com. "Fashion has always been a source of stress for me, because I don't know how to dress myself. I'm short-torsoed with big boobs and I don't really understand what a belt does. But you get on these shows and people fit the clothing to you and suddenly you learn, 'Oh, I should be wearing petite jackets.' I really admire people who have a natural sense of style. They have a super power."

With awards season in full swing, Rachel has had to don more glitzy gowns than ever before. At the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea, the star looked great in a fitted green dress by Black Halo. However, the story underneath her outfit was less glam.

"Here's the thing: I'm wearing a corset and two pairs of Spanx over it under my dress," she admitted. "Because the Spanx cover up the lumps of the corset. That's what busty girls have to do! I basically look like a pirate wench in my undergarments. But my dress was designed for me, which was so amazing. Curvier ladies can't just throw on the runway look. It just isn't made for boobies and butts and stuff like that."
