    Erin Wasson reveals architecture inspiration

    Erin Wasson often sees light fittings she wants to make into jewellery.

    Erin Wasson's style is inspired by architecture.

    The model has been a brand ambassador for Maybelline cosmetics for several years and recently fronted a campaign for Rockport.

    She has also designed clothes and has a jewellery line called Low Luv, which she has ideas for in the strangest places.

    "Most of my inspiration comes from architecture," she told "[I like to] find something in the undiscovered. I might see a hanging lamp and think, 'That would be a really beautiful earring or pendant.' You see a window panel or a door and it gets the wheels turning."

    Erin prides herself on her laidback look and has a favourite pair of boots which she's had resoled many times. She would rather be in something comfortable than be praised for rocking the most up-to-date trends.

    "My style is utilitarian," she giggled. "You mean my jeans and white T-shirts? And my cowboy boots. There's something so timeless about them. I just had a pair of Old Gringo boots made, which took seven months."

    The star is also a supporter of charity and is gearing up to help raise funds for Saving America's Mustangs, an organisation dedicated to the wild horses. Erin is working on a "garage sale", which will have more exclusive items on offer than most.

    "I don't care if it's Marc Jacobs or a Chanel handbag, everything is $100 or less," she explained.

    "My style is about contradiction. To me, the ideal woman is both strong and vulnerable. It comes out in everything I make."
