  • What's the most outrageous style advice you've received?
    Try everything inside out, back to front. To this day I still wear my cotton tees back to front because I prefer the fit.
     

    What word will you use most in 2015?
    By the end of the year I will no longer use words, simply emojis.
     

    Stuck in the elevator with a fashion designer, who would it be?
    Phoebe Philo. A girl can dream.
     

    Your latest art obsession?
    I’ll never get sick of Pre-Raphaelite and classicism, especially the huge tableaux you see in art galleries. Mesmerising!
     

    Name one style rule you think people should break.
    Navy blue and black. So Frenchy, so chic.
     

    If you met a creature from outer space, how would you describe style?
    Humans put on a second skin to non-verbally give each other hints of the kind of person they are underneath.
