Kate Bosworth "wasn't very cool" as a teenager.

The blonde beauty revealed that during her formative years growing up in America, she chose practicality over style.

Now frequently topping best-dressed lists, the 30-year-old said her highly praised fashion sense has been an evolution.

"I feel I grew into my own style in my early 20s, but as a teen I lived in small towns in the Northeast, and my closet consisted of unflattering down coats and long underwear. I wasn't very cool," she told Teen Vogue. "I would tell that girl now, 'Who cares what anyone else thinks? The hardships are what define you. A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.'"

Kate is currently starring in UK retailer Topshop's festival fashion campaign The Road To Coachella and co-designed the collection showcased in the ethereal imagery.

The star has earned praise for her stylish and relaxed looks at the famous Californian music gathering, which she visits every year.

"The initial concept of these pieces centred on the idea of refreshed festivalwear," she said of the pieces she helped to create. "I thought about what I hadn't seen out there that I would love to wear myself."

Kate's fiancé Michael Polish, who directed a short film starring his wife-to-be for the Topshop collaboration, explained the appeal of her style.

The filmmaker admired his partner's talent for incorporating different vibes and aesthetics when creating a look.

"Her ability to sense a feeling or mood when she picks an outfit is what I love most about her style - it's instinctive," he said.
