Hollywood actress Winona Ryder believes that a woman's choice of dressing, especially footwear, speaks volumes about her personality.

"What you wear - and it always starts with your shoes - determines what kind of character you are," a website quoted Ryder as saying.

"A woman who wears high heels carries herself very different to a girl who wears sneakers or sandals. It really helps determine how you carry yourself," he said.

"The Age of Innocence" star may be picky about her outfit choices, but is adamant she isn't worried about getting older and developing wrinkles.

"I love getting older. And I was really excited to turn 40. I feel like the older you get, the more yourself you become, and I think the roles, even if they are smaller, are more interesting," she said.

"I do look forward to the wrinkles, actually. Really, I won't mind. I started out so young and part of me always wanted to be older to get those more interesting parts. Now I feel like I have more life experience and I embrace it," she added.

The 41-year-old owns a collection of designer Hollywood outfits. She even has a dress which was once owned by actress Audrey Hepburn.

She also possesses late actress Claudette Colbert's gown from "It Happened One Night" and actress Oliva de Havilland's blouse from "Gone with the Wind".

"Every look can give an insight into a girl's personality, especially their footwear," she added.
