"My mom, for one. She gave me a bunch of cool '70s and '80s clothes. The only time I ever get complimented on what I'm wearing in my daily life is when it's one of her pieces, so I'm thankful she kept it all. Playing Blair has gotten me into Bette Davis, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn... Nowadays, I really love Cate Blanchett. She's experimental, but in the right way. She always looks comfortable."
