1. How would you define your style?
Versatile. I always invest in pieces that are classic and timeless but allow to be accessorised to create a variety of styles.
2. How much time do you spend dressing up before going out?
I go out a lot and I don't like to take a long time getting dressed. Like everything else, getting ready is all about preparation. As long as I know where I am going, I would select two or three possible choices. Then it's all about which one makes me feel best at the time. My record is, say 30 minutes...
3. How often and where do you usually go shopping?
I would usually add a few items to my wardrobe every season, just so it's up to date and sometimes that could just be accessories. I like the shops on the port and El Corte Ingles also offers good selection.
4. Where do you get your inspiration and ideas?
I like to follow the catwalk collections of favourite designer labels and fashion trends in general.
5. My favourite shops/brands are ..
Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg and Missoni but I would also mix with some High Street brands. For shoes, my top two for appearance and comfort are Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin. The formula I use is very simple: Mix brand label with high street pieces but try to maintain the right balance.
6. What is your favourite piece in the closet?
Roberto Cavalli backless dress!
7. What are your favourite colours? Why?
All shades of Magenta and Purple. I love bright colours because they are bold, vibrant and cheerful although I always prefer to mix and have a contrast with either Black or White.
8. What is the most expensive thing in your wardrobe?
My Fur and Cashmere Coats and Jackets.
9. Which celebrity style do you like the most?
Although fictional, my personal favourite has to be Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.
10. What advice would you give to have obtain a good style?
I think that good style is when a personal style is developed. This requires good knowledge of your own body shape, lifestyle and comfort zone. Everyone of us is different and fashion is only a guideline as to creating a personal look that incorporates fashion trends but is adapted to the individual to accentuate all good features and diminish possible imperfections thus giving confidence in one's appearance and a feel good factor. Oh, and always invest in good brand shoes!!!
