Dress code: Erin O'Connor
Monday 15 February 2010
What are you wearing right now?
Some black leather shoes with brass toe caps by Miu Miu, funky frog Topman socks, black tailored trousers from Acne, a vintage Russian sailor’s top with a metallic polka-dot jacket by Victor and Rolf, and a classic Jaeger handbag.
Who’s your style icon?
What can’t you live without?
I absolutely need a regular fix of Kate Halfpenny necklaces. They come with wasps and frogs and other funny little creatures attached.
Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.
A Jean Paul Gaultier couture full-length gown with fishtail and built-in cravat, to the 2009 MET ball.
What’s in your wardrobe?
An eclectic mix of vintage and high street. I am also prone to Japanese tailoring such as Comme des Garçons, as well as Helmut Lang and Dries Van Noten.
What’s in your make-up bag?
Anything by BECCA make-up, No 1 Chanel foundation, single false eyelashes by Shu Uemura, and lippy and mascara by Rimmel.
If you could live in any decade, style-wise which would it be?
The Twenties. It was a beautifully elegant period for women. Think Great Gatsby.
How often do you look in the mirror?
Daily...It’s an occupational hazard as I take on different personae.I never know who or what I’m going to be when I rock up for work!
Any fashion confessions you want to share with us?
I once went out wearing food dye in my hair, Doc Martens, stripey tights and a tie-dye gypsy skirt. It was the early Nineties andit took hours to look that bad.
Erin O’Connor is the face of the Look magazine fashion show on Saturday 20 February. To attend the show, or for more information, see Look.co.uk/TheLookShow
