Rose Byrne: My style has improved

Rose Byrne has spoken about her taste in fashion, and her new role as the face of Oroton.

The Australian actress is no stranger to the world of fashion and beauty, having been the face of cosmetics giant Max Factor between 2004 and 2006. She has now landed the role of fronting Down Under accessories brand Oroton, which is known for its exquisite leather handbags and purses.

Despite fronting a campaign which is based in her home country, Rose feels her taste changed dramatically while on the other side of the world.

"Casual day to day. I always copied my sisters growing up and would often steal their dresses and boots. I believe my own style started to evolve once I moved to London at 25," she told "The streets are like a catwalk and incredibly inspiring and liberating. No one ever cares what you are wearing. There is an intrinsic rebelliousness within the London fashion scene that I love."

Rose is a regular on the front row of Fashion Weeks, previously gracing the guest list at Max Mara's Milan show earlier this year. The brand she is working with now was a part of her growing up, so the brunette beauty is thrilled to be linked to it.

"Growing up, Oroton was always the label of luxury. Their in-store and advertising images were always beautiful, timeless and classy, always hinting at something special," Rose smiled. "I would see their stores on trips from Balmain in to the city and just gaze and window shop."

She may dress to impress now, but the 35-year-old star still has a vivid memory of one fashion mishap she had a decade ago.

"A crocheted green dress paired with Doc Martens and corn rows in my hair that I wore to a Lenny Kravitz concert in 1994. Hideous," she shuddered.
