Dress code: Charlotte Tilbury, make-up artist
Monday 16 March 2009
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.
