The Made In Chelsea star and JustFab style expert talks to Kate McAuley about idolising Miranda Kerr, the best places to shop in New York and her most treasured possessions
WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON AND WHY?
Miranda Kerr and Olivia Palermo are two of my current style icons. Miranda Kerr is such an inspirational mother. She dresses impeccably during the day and really nails nighttime chic to the extreme. Whether it’s jeans, high top trainers and a silk shirt or a leather skirt and blazer she always looks stunning. Olivia Palermo inspires me to wear more colour and experiment with fashion with feminine shapes and prints.
WHAT’S ONE PIECE OF CLOTHING EVERY WOMAN NEEDS IN HER WARDROBE THIS SEASON?
For me, it is my leather trousers. They are so easily worn casual with biker boots but also transformed into a sexier vibe in the evening with some killer heels.
DESCRIBE THE BEST OUTFIT YOU’VE EVER WORN.
A navy velvet tuxedo suit really captured my heart last year. I can wear it with nothing underneath the blazer in the evening for a sexier look or with a skirt and statement jewellery in the day time. I also have a Peter Pilotto dress which is my go-to for smart events.
WHAT LOOK DO YOU LOVE BUT DOUBT YOU COULD PULL OFF?
Boho style clothes. I like floaty materials but I am more into structure and mixing materials.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR WHEN NOBODY’S LOOKING?
A navy cashmere tracksuit for cold days blogging from home.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE FASHION FAUX PAS?
Trying to pull off a fashion trend when it didn’t suit my body type.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED PIECE OF CLOTHING OR JEWELRY?
My watch was given to me for my 18th Birthday and I haven’t taken it off since.
I’M ABOUT TO HEAD TO NEW YORK FOR FASHION WEEK. ANY SHOPPING TIPS?
Last time I went to New York I completely fell in love. I stayed bang in the middle of Soho and just loved wandering. Many of the boutiques I stumbled across I can’t remember the names of but I did go to Jessie James, Scoop, Intermix, all the major department stores. Unlike in London, in New York I felt I could just walk around for hours and discover the quirkiest boutiques.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST EXTRAVAGANT SARTORIAL PURCHASE?
I bought a Burberry trench last year, which is perfect for winter. It’s black and white wool with a leather collar and leather sleeves. It was investment piece that I will never get bored of.
