...dressing for big occasions

"If you go to a big social gathering and you want to be the woman who everybody faints at, don't get lost in a sea of sequins and frills; wear a white shirt and a pair of black trousers and you won't look like everybody else, and everyone will think you look fabulous.

"To me, it's a no-brainer."

...breaking rules

"I think if I break any fashion rules, it's very quietly and very discreetly. I hate the notion that satin has to be for the evening and wool for the day."

...wardrobe size

"If you don't want to have tonnes and tonnes of clothes and you just want to have six, eight, 10 pieces that work well together, then the easiest way to do it is to keep to one or two colours."

...appeal of boyish styles

"Women who people usually say are stylish are very often women who dress in a very masculine way."
