Pink Lady: "I've learned what are my best colors: I love rose hues, pinks and mixing in a pop of neon," says the star of Saturday Night Live (which premieres September 24 on NBC). "I've always loved fashion. I would see Lucille Ball in a 1960s house dress and remember thinking how good it looked." 

Partial to purses: "I like to invest in handbags more than in clothes. I bought a black Balenciaga bag when I first made a lot of money and I use it every day," says the accessories fan, who recently snagged a pair of Isabel Marant flat booties from "And I have a million pairs of Repetto jazz flats. They’re perfect for New York because you can slip them on."

Knockout outfit: "I wore a violet dress on Letterman in 2010. It was Narcisco Rodriguez and I felt really confident in it," says Elliott. "It was tight and pretty short -- not something I would normally wear -- but?when I put it on, I loved it."

QUOTE: "I love the style of Sienna Miller, Stella McCartney and Brigitte Bardot."
