WHAT IS YOUR...
- Favourite shop?
- Best bargain buy?
A black, chunky knit cardigan that was fully sequinned at the front, reduced from €115 to €27 in Topshop.
- Biggest splurge?
A brown and green tweed suit by Fornarina for €250 in Spain. It had three-quarter length trousers and a cape jacket with ruffled bracelet sleeves and a pleat back.
- Best and worst dressed style icons?
I love Scandinavian style, so for me the best is Swedish singer Lykke Li, and the Danish singer Oh Land. The worst is Katie Perry.
- Favourite label or designer?
McQueen, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, Alexander Wang and Acne.
- Monthly spend on clothes?
Between €50 and €100.
- Last fashion buy?
A brown and black, laddered fabric print top from Topshop that is short at the front and knee-length at the back.
- Biggest fashion mistake?
Black patent, platform stilettos that were too high. If shoes are so high that you can't walk in them, they kill the outfit.
- What do you love and hate in fashion?
I love when people have no boundaries with their style and I hate social conventions that restrict individuality.
