Sarah Gadon didn't understand the "craftsmanship" of designer gowns before she wore one.

The Canadian actress stars in Dracula Untold, the latest take on the classic vampire story.

She might be growing in popularity by the second, but the 27-year-old still hasn't fully come to terms with dressing up for big events.

At Cannes Film Festival in May, the blonde star looked amazing in a lacy black and dark-silver dress.

"It's an extension of the filmmaking process now; it's how you sell your film," she mused to the British edition of Elle magazine when asked about getting styled for the red carpet.

"I wore Armani Privé to Cannes and that was incredible. The craftsmanship is something I never understood until I wore it: the structure, the integrity of the fabrics, the colours, how things photograph.

"A big part of the process is finding people you work with well, so you're creating a look together. I still find it stressful, but I'm learning to enjoy it."

Sarah also stars in David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars and period drama Girls' Night Out, in which she plays Princess Elizabeth.

When she does get time off, the busy star still likes to keep active.

"In the summer, I love to go up north to a cottage and relax by the lake, swim, go canoeing..." she said of her home city, Toronto.

"I also love riding my bike around Toronto, going to the farmer's market, cooking. That sounds simple, but it's a luxury you don't have when you're living in hotels."
