Lauren Hutton thinks people aren't born with style.

The veteran model, who has graced the cover of VOGUE magazine an impressive 28 times, believes looking good takes effort and advises women to spend time discovering what works best for them.

She explained during a talk at the 92Y: Cultural Institution and Community Center in New York City: ''People like to say you're either born with style or you're not, and that's complete hooey.''

''You've gotta develop your own and find your own. We're all completely different - different bones. Go for what suits you.

''Get in the mirror and you really look at yourself, not with your mother's eyes, not with your sister's eyes - just try to get rid of everybody's ideas of who you are and who you're supposed to be, and take a good look at yourself.''

The 70-year-old model-and-actress isn't a fan of fast fashion and makes a point of never buying anything that's on trend so she doesn't get left behind.

According to WWD, Lauren explained: ''If you just put on whatever they're trying to sell you, you will always be out of fashion. Otherwise, they can't keep selling [to] you. So, you will always be out of fashion.

''Get used to it. That's the game. Whatever they say is fashionable, chuck it.''
