SheKnows: What are your five beauty must-haves?

SheKnows: Who are your favorite red carpet designers?

Davidtz: Roland Mouret, Celine and Givenchy.

SheKnows: What do you think are the five pieces every woman should have in her closet?

Davidtz: Great skinny black pants, a white silk shirt, a cocktail dress in either black or cream, a fabulous weightless cashmere wrap in a neutral color and a pair of very high black stilettos.

SheKnows: How does your character Mary Parker’s style differ from your own style?

Davidtz: She has longer hair and dresses a little more feminine than I do. I am a mom as well, but I am usually in baggy jeans and ballet flats with a big bag that has room for all my kids’ paraphernalia!

SheKnows: What do you love best about your co-star Emma Stone‘s style?

Davidtz: Emma is so brave with color. She wears all of those gorgeous reds and tangerines, and then adds accents like big bows — she pulls it all off so beautifully. She is very fresh and unique.
