WWD caught up with actress Maggie Gyllenhaal on Wednesday and asked her about her style on and off the red carpet. Gyllenhaal explained, "I'm really interested in late Seventies--a 1979 Helmut Newton, Yves Saint Laurent [vibe]." But can she be spotted in designer labels all of the time?
M.G.: No, I usually dress very practically. I have a three-year-old. I bought this [Acne] dress [pictured below] today because you don't need a bra with it and I can wear it anytime I want to go out to dinner. That's what I'm looking for [as a consumer]. The things that I have that are outrageous and wild, and are made by fancy designers are usually things that I wore to something and were given to me. It's hard to reappropriate those pieces into your everyday wardrobe.
