Hayden Panettiere wants to be a ''sexy and youthful'' bride.

The 24-year-old actress has not yet set a date for her wedding to fiancé Wladimir Klitschko but already knows she wants to look ''classy and elegant''.

She told People: ''I would like some really long, loose boho beach waves and just a nice golden tan.

''I want to be classy and elegant and sophisticated, but I also don't want to forget my age. I want to be comfortable. I want it to be just sexy enough, but youthful at the same time. I don't want to look so done up.''

Hayden also admitted to being envious of her 'Nashville' character Juliette Barnes' wardrobe and often asks the show's costume department for permission to take some of the items home.

She admitted: ''She's got great clothes. I ask the wardrobe department sometimes, 'Do you think they would let me have these?'

''Her performance on-stage clothes are one thing, but her off-stage clothes are also really fun and wearable. There was this one Balmain dress, which I really wanted to use, but it [didn't work for] the scene. It was amazing.''

And though the actress needs to keep her short hair blonde for the show, she would love to experiment with colour.

She said: ''I would probably do a combo of the light blue, lavender and maybe a really light pink.

''I mean if I did my whole head, I would probably go for lavender.

''My friend on set did her hair with this very, very light pink and it kind of has a multicolour look on the ends. It's really light and really pretty. We would have to see what looks best.''
