Bryant, who has found success on both the small and big screens, is also trying her hand at design. She and husband Dave Pope (above) will soon release an affordable line of sports apparel entitled Basic Terrain. In between all of her glamorous affairs, the stylish star took the time to chat with us about her wardrobe on and off set. 

Do you miss living in New York? 
"I do, at times. I prefer to live in California, but I like to visit here. I have lots of friends and family that live here, so whenever I come back, it's great; I'm coming home. I always look at New York as, 'This is where I'm from, and I live out there.' New York is always my first home that I just don't live in."

How would you describe your personal style?
"That used to be a question that seemed easier for me to answer when I was younger, and now it's kind of harder...I don't know, I like different things. I like things that are not trendy, that are classic. One day I might be a little more boho than the next; I'm kind of all over the place. I go with my mood and how I feel—the same with music. I have a lot of different tastes in music, and it's just what speaks to me at the moment. With clothes and styles, it's kind of the same thing."

(Courtesy: NBC)Can you see any similarities between your wardrobe and those of the characters you've played?
"Yes, weirdly enough, I haven't done a really good job of differentiating [myself from] the characters I've done. They always sort of look like me [and] all kind of look the same. Jasmine and I have a very similar wardrobe, but hers is even more non-fussy because she's a mom, and she's not tripping on all that. She's not rocking heels, but she might wear these jeans [top image]."
