The 31-year-old actress believes she was "very well dressed" when she was a child, and the star has put her sense of style down to her parent Cristina Routh who influenced her wardrobe choices over the years.

The 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park' star told InStyle.com: "I was a very well-dressed child."

Camilla has also credited Cristina - who started her own company aged 20 years old - for not only educating her about fashion but also about "everything" else in the world.

The ' When a Stranger Calls' star added: "She's really taught me everything I know, frankly, and really exposed me to this world from a very early age. Why not stick with what works? I know she has no agenda."

And the brunette beauty believes her and her mother also share the same work ethic as they have a lot of "respect" for one another and to stay true to their beliefs.

The California-born star said: "I've been working my whole life, so that's been set since the beginning and I think, if you have a lot of respect for each other, with any partnership, that's what matters at the end of the day.

"The power of no is very underestimated, and we don't remember that."

Camilla has revealed she was also told to "value [her] self worth" when she was growing up and to feel confident as an individual.

She said: "I was taught from a really early age to value my self worth ... Your self confidence is the most important thing you can have.

"If you're feeling confident, you're dressing for yourself. Your confidence really moves you on the outside ... It comes from the inside, anyway, so I think it's all about loving yourself truly and that will take you really far."
