For her look at Alice + Olivia’s New York Fashion Week presentation last night, Michelle Trachtenberg channeled a major fashion star, and it's not who you might expect.

"This is my Kate Middleton moment," Trachtenberg told InStyle of her cream coat and sparkly nude cocktail dress by the label. "I love Alice + Olivia because Stacey [Bendet] knows exactly what a woman wants to wear, and she has wonderful way about making women feel special. She’s literally one of the few people that have ever gotten me to wear color. This outfit is my version of color! Not wearing black is a huge step for me."

But as for her off-duty style, Trachtenberg admitted she'd rather be bundled up. "Normally when I’m not here, and in this freezing weather, I’m totally covered up," she said. "I'd literally be in all black head-to-toe and seven sweaters layered underneath a ginormous black cashmere coat. I’d have my earmuffs on, my beautiful massive accented color scarf, and my Wolford tights. That’s my go-to."
