The Gossip Girl actress said that while she loves clothes, she only wants to dress for herself.

Talking to OK! Magazine, she explained, ‘Gossip Girl has absolutely changed my style. And living in New York I’ve become more brave and aware of fashion.

‘I completely close my eyes to it when people call me a fashion icon because it’s an opinion from people that I don’t know. I wear what I like.’

The 25-year-old recently starred in Country Strong alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, and said that it gave her the perfect opportunity to indulge in some ribs.

‘I do a lot of working so that’s a lot of working out for me in my life. I don’t feel any pressure to be a particular shape,’ she said.

‘During the filming of Country Strong I felt totally free to eat some ribs.’
