ELLE (Canada) - - Style -

ON THE BEST THING SHE HAS EVER WORN “I had a fit­ting for Miu Miu at New York Fash­ion Week; they gave me a se­quined denim miniskirt, em­bel­lished pale-turquoise pumps and a mas­sive shear­ling coat. Putting on [the clothes] was the first time I un­der­stood that fash­ion could change your mood. It was like drink­ing a glass of cham­pagne!”

ON HER ON­SCREEN AL­TER EGO “Play­ing Rachel Zane on Suits has given me an education in fash­ion. It has opened my eyes to the value of qual­ity in a piece of cloth­ing and ex­posed me to de­sign­ers who would never have been on my radar.” ON HER

LIFE­STYLE SITE, THE TIG “I wanted to have a com­mu­nity for women to be up­lift­ing and sup­port­ive of one an­other, to give them dis­tance from how snarky things can get. Young women would al­ways run up to me on the street and say ‘I love you in Suits!’ Now they come up to me and say ‘I love The Tig!’” ON HER CAP­SULE COL­LEC­TION WITH

REITMANS “I’m con­nected to ev­ery piece in this col­lec­tion; my fin­ger­prints are all over th­ese dresses. When I was think­ing of the de­signs, I was tak­ing pic­tures of a fig tree in my house to get the ex­act palm shape.” (In stores April 24; from $80, reitmans.com)
