Dress Code: Jenny Beavan, Costume Designer
Thursday 20 May 2010
What are you wearing right now?
A homage to M & S! All black - it is safest when one is not the smallest - and some good ethnic silver necklaces.
Who's your style icon?
My neighbour Brooke Litchfield who just has style, without effort, in spadefuls.
What can't you live without?
Very little - but I do love my iPhone. Sorry!
Describe the best outfit you have ever worn
Any outfit that I can completely forget I am wearing and therefore concentrate on real life.
What's in your wardrobe?
Far too many clothes I never wear but might ...
What is in your make-up bag?
I don't have one - I look silly and much older with make up on.
What's in your handbag?
Wallet, keys, oyster card, one of those fold-up shopping bags, notebook and pencil and of course my iPhone!
If you could live in any decade, style-wise which would it be?
How often do you look in the mirror?
As little as possible.
Any fashion confessions you want to share with us?
I have absolutely no interest in fashion or clothing unless I am using clothes to tell a character's story. Then I become VERY interested in whatever is appropriate to that character. I most recently worked on Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes developing the costumes for Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Rachel McAdams which was a really interesting project.
What's your secret style tip?
Well as you may have guessed I don't have one for myself - in my work though, often "less is more".
