WHO: Alice Eve
WHAT: Costar of Star Trek Into Darkness
WHERE: Los Angeles
MY SENSE OF STYLE IS: Eclectic. I always go for a dress that makes me feel good. To quote The Kinks, I'm not a "dedicated follower of fashion." I follow my instincts, and if they don't fall in line with the latest fashion, then good luck to everyone.
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN: A leather jacket—the ultimate would be one from Balenciaga.
MY DAY-TO-DAY UNIFORM: A James Perse T-shirt, J Brand jeans, and Nike high-tops.
BEST FASHION ADVICE I'VE EVER BEEN GIVEN: [Designer] L'Wren Scott told me to always "sell it." If you don't own your look, what's the point?
"At the behest of my brothers, who said it contains a veritable moral code, I'm currently halfway through The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. The New Year of Grace is from my godmother, Hayley Mills, who gave it to me for when "the black clouds form."
"This is my 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. I found it on AutoTrader and traveled 200 miles to get it. I drove it home with the roof down."

"I like David Yurman because it's a family company. It's like it's a mom-and-pop jeweler. The pieces are really durable and well-made."
"Nars' lip pencil in Dragon Girl is great because it’s really easy to apply. It's so bright, it always looks fresh."
"This Omega watch was left to me in my nana's will. She wrote "For Alice" on a Post-it. It's beautiful."
"Nicholas Kirkwood is the most interesting and innovative shoe designer working today."
"I change handbags all the times, but with Chanel you can never go wrong. If you're lucky enough to have one, carry it every day!"
