WHO: Gemma Arterton

AGE: 27

WHAT: Star of Quantum of Solace, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and the upcoming Unfinished Song and Byzantium (both in theaters in June).

MY STYLE: Easy and undone. I gravitate toward classic, timeless pieces such as knitwear. I love tailoring and leather, just to add an edge.

BAD HABITS: I tend to dress for comfort, which means that I live in an oversize sweater and blue jeans. For me to dress otherwise takes a real effort of thinking!

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN: A good blazer. It can instantly add class to a basic T-shirt and jeans.

MY FASHION MANTRA: Always keep it simple—my stylist told me that.
