Anna Friel is saving all her clothes for her daughter.

The 36-year-old actress' little girl Gracie, seven, is fascinated by all her outfits and accessories, and the 'Look of Love' star - who is now dating Rhys Ifans, but had her child with former partner David Thewlis - says she is main reason behind her ever-expanding wardrobe.

She revealed: ''Gracie is getting to the point where she'll go and look in my closet and she loves rooting through my jewellery boxes. She likes anything shiny.

''I want to save all of my clothes and shoes for her. That's the point of it and makes it all worthwhile.''

And Gracie could stand to inherit quite a collection as Anna makes shopping for vintage items a priority wherever she goes.

She added in an interview with Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I adore vintage. The first thing I do when I arrive in a city is google vintage stores.

''My first ever piece was an Edwardian lace dress that I still have. Rhys and I went to Bath recently and I was on this maple syrup cleanse, so I could only drink herbal tea, but there was a vintage shop so it made me feel better about being deprived.''
