Having a wardrobe department at your disposal may not be all it's cracked up to be.

Just ask some TV stars Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Morena Baccarin (Homeland), and Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) who find their on-screen outfits at odds with their own personal style.

In the December issue of Lucky, the starlets model outfits true to their characters' style alongside designer looks that are more in line with how they dress off the set.

Take Morrison, who plays Emma Swan, a former bondswoman with a soft spot for jackets like the leather one from Diesel worn for this shoot. 

"Emma doesn't have a lot of clothes," says Morrison. "I have a closet full of blazers. And more striped shirts than any human could possibly wear — Emma's jackets are very meaningful to her, they're her armor in the world."

The orange Jenni Kayne skirt paired with a striped J.Crew tee and BCBG Max Azria jacket worn by Morrison in her shoot with photographer Ben Watts is more indicative of her own tastes.

"I"m trying to incorporate color into my life," she says. "Until recently, everything in my closet was black, white, gray, navy, or olive."

Baccarin, meanwhile, cites Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama as influences for her Homeland alter ego, Jessica Brody. Off the set, however, the leggy brunette prefers jeans, vintage kitten heels, and leather, like the pleated Cushnie et Ochs skirt she models for Lucky.

For Simone, playing a model requires exuding a "rock-n-roll" vibe via a leather Alice + Olivia jacket and pink leather Casadei pumps. Off the set, "easy, beautiful dresses are my thing," she says, taking a turn in a printed Fendi number.

Perhaps the biggest departure from on-screen style is that of Bellisario, who rocks boho looks when she's not playing a preppy princess.

"She's very classic, sort of perfect young Ralph Lauren and old money," she says of her character Spencer Hastings. "Her go-to pieces are riding boots, knee socks, and a classic blazer — I'm partial to slouchier, more free clothing. My icon is Patti Smith, so the more rips, the more punk, the more comfortable I feel."
