Name: Bridget Moynahan

Occupation: Actress

Manhattan mama: The native New Yorker and single mom to son John, 4, says she dabbles in different styles, depending on her mood: "I love the Rick Owens kind of David Bowie androgynous look but then I can also go more traditional and classic like Oscar de la Renta."

Denim diehard: "I'm more practical and easy going," says the star of the CBS drama Blue Bloods (which premieres its second season on September 23 at 10 p.m.). Essentials in her wardrobe include Vince separates, James Perse tees, J. Crew jewelry and jeans by AG and MiH in solid dark rinse only. "I'm not into the jeans that have the fake washout and whiskers and washed out part in the butt...I think it looks cheesy and distracting!"

Lasting luxe: "I don't like to shop but when I do, I buy things I know are going to carry me over from season to season. Christian Louboutins, which are classic and sexy, and anything Stella McCartney. She's such a great designer and her styles are timeless."

QUOTE: "I'm not that girl who's parading around in high heels in the city. I see girls do it! I just can't!"
