What do you wear to work?
I wear Topshop every day. When I'm in appointments or out at events it's the perfect opportunity to showcase our new trends. At the moment I can't get enough of my white blazer. I wear it with brightly coloured maxis or with shorts for a more tailored look. I'm always in chunky heels and gold jewellery.
What do you wear for a big night out?
I don't necessarily differentiate between what I wear day and night. I always dress to suit my mood, I just add lashes and more lippy.
Tell us about your biggest fashion mistake
Adidas trousers and crop tops when I was 10. I remember dressing up as the Spice Girls and I was always Sporty Spice!
Tell us about the last occasion you stepped out feeling good
I went to a garden party and felt amazing in my Boutique cape dress, as I wanted to keep my edgy style and not go too girly.
Who do you consider to be the most stylish man and woman of the past century?
I like looking back for inspiration but my style icons are more current. It would be Johnny Depp and the Olsen twins. They each have an essence of old Hollywood glamour but with a modern take and they look original and effortless.
What perfume do you wear?
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. If I want something lighter I wear Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone.
Which hair and grooming products are in your bathroom?
I swear by Liz Earle cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser and moisturiser. My other favourites are Palmers Cocoa Butter, plus, I love big hair so root boosting spray and hairspray.
Which product would you be lost without?
Dark purple lipstick. Ruthless from Topshops make-up range is my current favourite.
Are you a gym body?
I should be. Summers coming up and all the festivals, so maybe that will motivate me!
What's your favourite thing to do to unwind?
Watching Gossip Girl and all my other American TV favourites curled up in bed. Thats my guilty pleasure.
Do you have a grooming tip you swear by?
Less is more. Let the outfit do the talking, keeping hair and make-up simple. Just add lipstick for extra impact.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
To relax it would be somewhere tropical like Mauritius, but for a city break, New York without a doubt.
What was the last book you read?
Room by Emma Donoghue. Harrowing but thought-provoking.
