The three essential things a woman should know about style are...

If you choose taste over trend you will always look great. Wear what makes you feel beautiful. Less is, more often than not, more.

Please describe your style in three words.

Timeless, feminine, chic.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Wearing something you are not comfortable in.

Do you believe in role models?

Absolutely, I learn a lot from the great style icons of the 40's.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Leather and cashmere.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

I am a firm believer that different things work for different people.

Which city has the best-dressed women?

For me it is London. The women seem to have a clean, chic sophistication that I really identify with.

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

Conservative.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

Wear what makes you feel like the best version of you. When a woman feels confident and good about herself it shows.

Celebrities and style...

Do not always go together.

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

Shoes of course!

A woman should always look like...

Herself.

Who taught you what you know about style?

My incredibly chic grandmother.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

I choose what makes me feel confident and beautiful in the moment.

What is your biggest regret?

Not buying a discontinued Hermès Loquet watch at a vintage store in Paris. Still dreaming of that watch.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

I am a big shopping researcher. I like to see everything that is out there before I make a decision.

We will never see you wearing...

Platform heels.

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

I don't think I could pick one!

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her shoes and handbag.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

A vintage black crocodile waist belt from my mother. It instantly completes any outfit!

The one image that defined your approach to style...

The iconic Dior new look photo on the streets of Paris.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Valentino.

One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is...

Her accessories. They can make or break an outfit.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

Absolutely not.

Who would you like to recommend for €œMy Style€?

My incredibly chic grandmother Joan Flint.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Commit to it.
