The secret: suede garments and romantic outfits.
-Tell us a bit about how you got to know MANGO.
Since I was a teenager and first started shopping in London, I have always loved Mango. A great store with
trends right off the runway at affordable prices.
-How did you become a fashion journalist?
I started out doing work experience for magazines, I always wanted to interview people and write. I got my first internship at Elle right out of university.
-How has being a presenter of TV shows like Plain Jane changed your career?
It airs in 66 countries so the response from all over the world is amazing. It’s very moving to get
tweets from young women in Europe, the far East, Australia, saying how inspired they
are to be more confident in themselves, after watching the show!
-What have you learnt from hosting Plain Jane?
That deep down, all women have the same dreams and insecurities. It’s comforting – there’s a very universal
-Tell us your must-haves for this Spring season.
A printed scarf, chunky jewelry, a printed bikini, a bright blue eyeline from Maybelline, anything in pistachio
green and coral.
-What garment can we find in your closet over and over again?
Printed flat shoes. Although I have a ton of heels, I live in polka-dot, velvet or ponyskin loafers and ballet pumps.
-The perfect shoe for everyday wear is… as above!
-The perfect look for a date is… a one-shoulder top or dress. I think that’s a very sexy way too show skin without over-doing it. Red is proven to be the most passionate, seductive colour too.
-Have you got a new project that you can share with us? Yes! I’m hosting Fashion Star on NBC which starts
in March, and my new Spring collection of accessories launches in Spain on Stylistpick. es http://Stylistpick.es in April.
-Can you share a style tip with our fans?
Wear a nude coloured heel to elongate your legs!
During fashion week in NYC last week we observed many fashionistas going for the top crop. Have no fear, there are a thousand ways to wear it.
When was your first contact with fashion?
When I was growing up I spent lots of time with my cousins at my Grandma’s house. My cousins and I played ‘dress ups’ in her closet. She has great style and really influenced me, the one thing that stayed with me was that fashion didn’t need to be expensive or complicated… just worn with grace and confidence!
What has been your most memorable moment on a shoot?
I never forget the first time I shot with Steven Meisel. He is creative genius.
You are a fashion icon and are regularly featured in the “best dressed” lists of fashion magazines. Where do you get your style inspiration?
I love fashion, and feel honoured that people like my style… I don’t really think about it too much. I dress depending on my mood and the occasion.
Who are your style icons?
I have always admired Audrey Hepburn’s style, and my grandmother has always been a style icon to me… I love her classic and timeless style. She can bring the most amazing outfit together with accessories… and I often wear her vintage dresses.
How do you keep in shape?
I exercise regularly – be it yoga, hiking, pilates or resistance training… I try and do some form of exercise each day that I enjoy. I also eat healthily and follow the 80/20 rule, meaning that 80% of the time I eat healthily and 20% of the time I allow myself to indulge. I believe it’s important to try and have a balance between the two!
Do you have any beauty secrets you would like to share with us?
I use my KORA Organics range of skincare, which is certified organic, and has natural ingredients that are very nourishing for the skin. The skin is our largest organ so it’s very important to take care of it. I follow a three-step routine, morning and night, of cleansing, toning and moisturising. It’s vital to maintain the health of my skin for my work.
How has maternity changed your life? Has it affected your style?
Having my son has been the best thing that has happened to me! I think it has affected my style in the sense that I like to wear comfortable clothes and flats to be able to run around with him.
What are your favourite 5 pieces of the collection (see separate images)?
The fedora with the pattern stripe, an oversize white blazer, high waisted black skirt, ripped jeans and black and white stripe blazer.
What is the last book you read?
I recently read Just Kids by Patti Smith. And loved it
Right now I am reading….
At the moment I am reading Truth vs Falsehood by David Hawkins. I take it with me when I travel and every time I read it, I find something new!
What are your hobbies? Things you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spare time for me is rare, just like any Mom! When I do find some spare time
I like to spend it with my son and my husband, I love to cook for them. If we can, we spend time outdoors in nature.
What do you always carry in your handbag?
Iphone, RMS concealer, KORA Organics Daily Hand Cream, a Rose Quartz crystal, a KORA Organics Face Mist (either Rose which is balancing, Citrus which is uplifting) and my chakra balancing wand. Plus I love a red lip, so often I have a red lip tint in may handbag.
You are very active on social networks, why is it important for you to have this social profile?
I love connecting with people. I’m a very visual person so I love instagram!
What is your favourite holiday destination?
Anywhere with my family….
