My mother gave me my eye for fashion; I remember her buying a dress from John Galliano's very first collection when I was 15.My fail-safe outfit is a vintage dress with a pair of heels. Still, a boutique in Notting Hill, has a great selection of pristine vintage pieces (tel: 020 7243 2932). When I'm in New York, Cheap Jack's is great for a rummage (www.cheapjacks.com).

My style tip for all high-heel wearers is to rub Vaseline (pharmacies nationwide) on to the inside of any shoes that pinch – it softens the leather and helps avoid blisters.

Korres yoghurt face moisturiser (www. korres.com) is the only natural product I've found that works for my combination skin and smells good enough to eat.

Urban Bliss (www.bliss.me.uk) has a fantastic mix of therapists. I highly recommend a deep-tissue massage by Kim or Sybil – they have magic hands.
