Winona Ryder - Winona Ryder thinks shoes define character

Winona Ryder believes shoes define a woman's character.

The 41-year-old actress has a staggering collection of Hollywood outfits - including a dress owned by Audrey Hepburn, Claudette Colbert's gown from 'It Happened One Night' and Oliva de Havilland's blouse from 'Gone with the Wind' - and speaking from experience, admits every look can give an insight into a girl's personality, especially their footwear.

Winona told the New Review in this week's Independent On Sunday: ''What you wear - and it always starts with your shoes - determines what kind of character you are.

''A woman who wears high heels carries herself very different to a girl who wears sneakers or sandals. It really helps determine how you carry yourself.''

'The Age of Innocence' star may be picky about her outfit choices, but is adamant she isn't worried about getting older and developing wrinkles.

She has said in the past: ''I love getting older. And I was really excited to turn 40. I feel like the older you get, the more yourself you become, and I think the roles, even if they are smaller, are more interesting.

''I do look forward to the wrinkles, actually. Really, I won't mind. I started out so young and part of me always wanted to be older to get those more interesting parts. Now I feel like I have more life experience and I embrace it.''
