It’s hard to picture someone as sophisticated and glamorous as Catherine Zeta-Jones hanging out in sweats and sneakers — and that’s because she never does.
“It’s true, I don’t like the whole cutoff-shorts-and-T-shirt look, but I think you can look fantastic in casual clothes,” Zeta-Jones reveals in the December issue of InStyle. “I even find a way to make golf clothes look good; I put my collar up, get a sport hat and throw on an Hermès scarf.”
The ageless actress loves clothes so much that she’s in the midst of building what sounds like a pretty epic closet. “It’s like a dream. Racks on each side, a whole boudoir,” she says. But as excited as she is, her husband Michael Douglas is concerned about the new addition to their home. “I sit in there and watch CNN. Michael says one day I’m going to go in and never come out!”
And while the Broken City star loves luxe labels like Chanel, Helmut Lang, Alexander McQueen, Emilio Pucci and Stella McCartney, she doesn’t let the latest runway looks dictate what she wears. “I love fashion, love it, but I know exactly what looks good on my body,” Zeta-Jones explains. “I’ve never been a victim of trends.”
