Maggie Gyllenhaal: I'm Really Interested In Late '70s Style (PHOTO)

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.
