What's your nickname?

People used to call me EVB in school and it kind of stuck.

What childhood memory makes you cringe?

When my mother worked as a clown and arrived into my classroom as the 'children's entertainer'.

What's your most annoying habit?

Staying up, working until 3am when I mean to go to sleep at 8pm. Did I mention I have a human alarm clock which goes off at 6am?

Your most embarrassing fashion moment?

I was styling a wedding in the Yarra Valley in Australia two years ago. I was wearing a jumpsuit and was lifting things up and down. The jumpsuit tore and I didn't even realise it, until the father of the groom pointed out that my behind was on show.

Have you had a 'pinch me' moment?

I worked on the set of Sex and the City 2 and, the first day on set, I was standing talking with the writer Michael Patrick King. We had a bit of a chat, I told him I loved his work and he kissed my hand.
