Editor of BASH, the new wedding magazine by IMAGE

Here I'm wearing a Jonathan Saunders dress, Cos top, Carven collar and MoMuse earrings. I used to be much more into fashion, but having a baby and editing a magazine means that, these days, it's just about dressing.

So, I find myself in admiration of women such as Marion Cotillard, who is never over-shadowed by what she wears. It's so much more important to project a mood than have the season's 'It' shoes.

Style-wise, I suppose I'm a minimalist ... with a touch of romance. Am I dreaming? Well, there's an Erdem gown (the Anusha) that occupies my thoughts. I want it for my own wedding in December.

Alas, I think it's one of those "if only" dreams. Dressing for a wedding (your own, or otherwise) shouldn't be such a chore – I think people feel they need to wear a costume, almost, but true chic only comes with being yourself.
