What are you wearing?
Top from Westfield shopping mall – it's a bit of bling. Tights came from Country Road. The boots are Joan and David, the necklace I made myself out of bits and pieces. The coat is from Joseph. It's reversible, which is very nice.
How would you describe your style?
Is there any fashion item you would love to have?
Well, no – it's the body one wants, isn't it? People look at stuff in the window and go "Oooh, God, I'd like that very much," but if you did buy it and put it on, it wouldn't look anything like it does on the model. The shape is what you want. I think the best thing with anyone is to make sure they understand their own dimensions. A skirt too long can look f0rumpy, a skirt too short can look tarty. It's all a questions of balance with your body shape. I've got million-dollar legs, so I like wearing sprayed-on trousers, you see. Jodhpurs are very popular with me at the moment, because you can put a pair of jodhpurs on with a pair of riding boots and it's a good look.
