Eva Longoria, Olivia Wilde

When it comes to celebrity style crushes Olivia Wilde surely tops a lot of women's lists. But the star says she wishes she could dress a little more like another actress. "Eva Longoria always looks so put-together and goddamned adorable," the expecting star shares in the May issue of Lucky magazine. "But I can't imagine walking everywhere in those heels. She goes to the Laundromat with them on! I just don't have it in me. My style is never uncomfortable…it's part of my nature to look a little messy."

Her messy-chic style started by borrowing staples from an unexpected place: her dad's closet. "At 13 years old, I was wearing a lot of corduroy suits with wide-collared polyester shirts," she shares with the publication. "My nickname at that age was ‘thrifty girl,' which I think of now and is so weird," she says. "But at the time, I couldn't imagine paying more than $20 for a pair of jeans."

Of course, now the 30-year-old's wardrobe is a mix of both high and lows. But it's less about labels for the Rush star and more about being inspired:  "I remember thinking, I'm going to go home and buy a bunch of pencil skirts so I can do that. The same thing happened with suspenders. I saw someone in suspenders and I thought, yes! suspenders are everything!"

In the end, however, Wilde can sum her style motto up in one thought: "When in doubt, look to the French," she says.
