Baltimore's homespun glamour gal Julie Bowen is Lucky's April covergirl, looking chic in a pink blazer and lots of gold accessories.

Inside, the "Modern Family" star tells the magazine that her new stylist -- who also styles the ever-trendy Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" -- has been pushing her to step up her game.

"It was a big evolution in style for me to grow up and say 'I need to take fashion seriously for my job,'" Bowen told Lucky. "I have a stylist now, and she's trying to get me to wear more revealing stuff."

Bowen, who seems more at ease cheering on her favorite sports teams than talking Fashion Week, admitted that clothes aren't her forte. At least not lately.

"Oh, I went deep on Laura Ashley," she said, adding the demure brand was big at the prep school she attended in Newport, R.I. "You had to have at least three Laura Ashley dresses."

And as for shoes -- she's a fan of shoe booties new and old.

"It took me forever to invest in new shoe booties," Bowen told Lucky. "I had all these pairs from the '90s, and all the other shoes in my closet were pointing at them and laughing."
