Dress code: Erin O'Connor

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?

Anjelica Huston.

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.
