Katie Holmes dresses up more when she is in Europe.

The 32-year-old actress - who has a five-year-old daughter Suri with husband Tom Cruise - hates to stand out in a crowd so changes her wardrobe to match where she is in the world.

She said: "I like dressing to suit the places I travel to.

"So if I'm in New York, I'll wear a little more black. In Europe I try to be extra dressed up and in LA I'm probably my most laid back. I lie to fit in."

The 'Kennedys' star insists she isn't always glamorous and prefers to be "comfortable", particularly in her everyday life.

She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "When I'm taking Suri to school or if I'm doing chores, I like to wear sweats.

"I've always been the same - comfort comes first and I'm often found kicking around in my UGG boots.

"I buy my casualwear from FreeCity, Abercrombie & Fitch and American label James Perse. It's expensive, but I think it's worth it - the pieces last forever and are so soft."

Katie is a fan of European designers, particularly when choosing her jackets, as she likes the shape they give her.

She said: "If I'm meeting girlfriends for a lunch date, I'll probably wear slim jeans, usually by Current/Elliott and some kind of shirt or top by Isabel Marant - I like her stuff.

"I'm quite keen on European designers for neat, tailored jackets, so I'll put something from MaxMara on top.

"Their clothes are such high quality and I know I'll be able to keep them in my closet forever."
