Actress Paula Patton says she dresses to suit her mood and enjoys adding splashes of colour if she feels like taking a fashion risk.

The 39-year-old says she enjoys experimenting with her style, reports

She said: "My mind changes all the time. Sometimes I like things if they’re splashy and full of colour and sort of a risk. I guess I dress based on my mood and what feels best on my body."

However, the "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol" star still regrets some of her adventurous fashion choices and refuses to look at embarrassing photos from her past.

She said: "I wouldn’t even want to look back at my old pictures, I have no idea what was going on!

"But at the time you know you think you’re doing the right thing. You don’t ever want to leave the house and not like what you’re wearing so I guess whenever you do do it, you think it works. And then you look back and you might think differently!"
