Kate Bosworth's love for fashion started at a young age.

The 34-year-old actress ''developed an eye'' for extravagant garments as a child, when she would go to work with her father, Harold - who used to work for the former CEO of Burberry, Rosemary Bravo - as he would ask her about her opinion on certain items.

Speaking to ES magazine, the 'Blue Crush' star said: ''He would bring me to work. He'd ask me what prints I responded to; I developed an eye for things like that. ''

And Kate has revealed as she has grown up she has sparked up a great friendship with other designers, including Fernando Garcia, who is the creative director of Oscar de la Renta.

The blonde-haired beauty enjoys having a ''close relationship'' with creative masterminds.

She said: ''I'm very true to myself and I like having direct relationships with people; I have close relationships with a lot of designers.

''The only thing I know how to do is to be very honest with my own voice and influence the world.''

The 'Before I Wake' star - who is married to fellow actor Michael Polish - has admitted boasting a successful career in the entertainment business can be a struggle, as she has claimed there are ''isn't much opportunity''.

Speaking about her career, she said: ''There really isn't much opportunity. It's so limited. You're lucky if you're able to make a living as an actor. I've tried to be as true to myself as I can be, with the opportunities that I've had. So, if there were moments, or years, in which I went away for a minute that's not because I didn't want to work, but probably because I wasn't happy with the opportunities.''
