With an eye for fashion that's made her one of our favorite Young Hollywood style setters, it's only fitting that we'd find Camilla Belle stepping out for Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show in Miami this past weekend. Before the catwalk, we caught up with the actress, whose off-duty brand of street style manages to be just as chic as her red-carpet wares, to find out just how she preps for the glamour of, say, the Met Gala, and her tricks for styling up your basic cotton t-shirt. Read on for all the details from the gorgeous Camilla Belle — straight from Miami.

POPSUGAR: When you're reaching for something like a regular white cotton t-shirt, how do you put your stamp on it and style it your way?
Camilla Belle: That's when everyone's personality comes into play, and for me, I'm a fan of jewelry and I collect jewelry whenever I travel. I just got back from Brazil and I came back with quite a few new pieces and trinkets to add to my wardrobe, and that's something I like to play around with and to have fun with.
PS: On the opposite end of the spectrum, we love watching you on the red carpet in these amazing, high-drama gowns. Is there one moment that stands out in your mind as your absolute favorite red carpet moment?
CB: One of them is probably the first year I went to the Met Gala and I wore Jean Paul Gaultier Couture. The dress was so dramatic and the event was so beautiful, and so many amazing people that I respect were walking on the red carpet — and Cate Blanchett was right next to me. It was so over the top in so many different ways — the dress included — and I'll never forget that. The dress will always be something really special. Another one that pops into my mind is also the Met Gala, last year. I wore Ralph Lauren, and that dress was very different from any look I had worn before, and also just the whole look — the makeup and the hair. It was all very much put together in a certain way, and I think that's the moment that will always pop out as well.
