Zosia Mamet prefers to wear clothes designed by her friends.

The 'Girls' actress - famed for playing ditzy Shoshanna on the HBO show - says she is friendly with the fashion designers whose gowns she sports at red carpet events and calls up her pals directly to find the right sartorial choice.

Zosia, 25, regularly champions up-and-coming designers, including her friend Rebecca Minkoff, and says she only uses a stylist "every once in a while" as she prefers to create her red carpet look herself.

She added to Fashionista.com: "I'm close with a lot of designers that I love to wear, so most of it is me calling them up being like, 'Hey can we find something?' That's my favourite way of doing it. It feels the most fun and the most comfortable that way. I like wearing people I know."

The young actress was recently named one of TIME magazine's worst dressed celebrities of 2013, but she admits she dresses more for comfort than style.

Quizzed about her approach to red carpet fashion, Zosia said she likes outfits that are "comfortable" and "fun".

The fashion-conscious starlet also insisted her own style couldn't be more different than her neurotic on-screen alter-ego, Shoshanna, in the hit TV series.
