What are you wearing right now?

I'm wearing a Balmain dress, Manolo Blahnik shoes, an Alessandro dell'Acqua jacket, and carrying a Marc Jacobs handbag.

Who's your style icon?

I have lots of style icons! The most influential are probably Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Audrey Hepburn, Jessica Rabbit and Stevie Nicks.

What can't you live without?

I have just created the fabulous 21st-century Myface Cosmetics, which is cleverly split into fair, medium and medium/dark skin tones. The range is so incredible, I simply can't live without my Myface mascara, foundation and eyeshadows.

Describe the best outfit you have ever worn

It was a completely fabulous, long, tiger-print Roberto Cavalli Seventies disco dress with winged sleeves.

What's in your wardrobe?

Some Alessandro dell'Acqua, Temperley, loads of Alaïa, Balmain, Louboutin, Cavalli, and a lot of vintage.

What's your handbag like, and what is in it?

My favourite is an amazing black patent-leather Alaïa that is big enough to fit everything I need to carry around in it, yet still looks stylish. In it is my make-up bag, which contains the entire "fair" range from my Myface Cosmetics line, my Aspinal crocodile diary, Oliver Peoples sunglasses (right), Miu Miu wallet, BlackBerry, vitamins, hairbrush and Rodial Glamtox anti-ageing serum.

If you could live in any century, style-wise, which would it be?

Now, this century – I love my life and I don't want to change it.

How often do you look in the mirror?

As often as I get a chance to.

Any guilty pleasures/fashion confessions you want to share with us?

I have a high-heel fetish! I possess no flat shoes, they make me feel depressed. I come alive and feel empowered and sexy in high heels.
