DESCRIBE WHAT YOU’RE WEARING: It’s a dress by Gareth Pugh from his second catwalk collection. He’s multi-faceted and the most interesting dress designer to come out of the UK for a while. The platform shoes are made to my own design. The gloves are also by Pugh, with rings from a jeweller in LA – I have a thing about armour. The earrings are 1920s.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED ITEM?: A very beautiful Balenciaga coat in cherry red duchesse satin with pink interior. I really love my bits and piece of Chanel, a gold sequin coat from the 1920s and my Philip Treacy hats. I love feathers, rose-cut diamonds and old cufflinks.
DO YOU HAVE PET HATES ? I hate trainers and shell suits, and I am not good on prints. I like things to look neat and tidy and I hate too many logos. I don’t do floaty stuff much.
DO YOU ALWAYS WEAR SUCH HIGH HEELS? I always wanted to be tall, and I shrink when I take off my shoes. I have always had my shoes made to my own design and I wear flats only at the gym. Louboutin made me a pair of shoes out of a Guinness can, but I haven’t worn them for years. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO DRESS UP? About 10 minutes. I do my own hair and as long as I have a decent manicure, clean hair and two or three favourite things, then I get myself together very quickly. It’s easy once you have the same black and white base. Otherwise it takes me hours.…a little more here.
