The globe trotting stylist recalls the moment her mother arrived into school dressed as a clown and her first day on the set of Sex and the City 2.

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.
