1) Describe your style in 3 words

Sporty, sexy, adventurous.

2) What’s the most precious item in your wardrobe and why?

My black Chanel quilted calfskin purse. My mother gave it to me when I was 16 and it goes with everything. The bag may be small, but it holds a lot of memories.

3) What’s your go to outfit?

Jeans and a cool looking fitted Tee. You can be casual with flats or runners, or dress it up with a pair of killer heels for night.

8) Less or more?

Less. Let you inner beauty shine through!

9) If you could have anyone’s wardrobe whose would it be and why?

Lady Gaga. But only for a day. I just want to know what other fantastical, crazy outfits she has in there.

10) If you were an item of clothing what would you be?

Probably a belt. Someone’s got to hold the pants up!

11) Where do you love to shop?

Paris and Seoul. They are really the leaders in fashion today. 

12) Favourite fashion apps?

Vogue Runway and Little Redbook. But I also spend a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram checking out fashion.

13) If a museum asked you to donate one item from your wardrobe that represented you what would it be?

My outfit from Wolf Warrior 2. It was very casual, but in a way, boyish yet sexy. Fans of the film loved it, it was very “devil may care”… and what I feel a strong independent woman would wear on a daily basis.

14) What will we never find in your wardrobe?

A lonely single sock… I recycle them and use them for cleaning.

15) What’s your number one fashion rule?

When in doubt, keep it simple and smile.
