Dress code: Linda Papadopoulos, TV Psychologist
Monday 20 July 2009
What are you wearing right now?
I have two completely separate wardrobes for work and play. Right now I'm in professional mode – a black suit with waistcoat, a Gap T-shirt and black ankle boots by Dior.
Who's your style icon?
It has to be Audrey Hepburn, I really admire her elegance, and she always looks so effortlessly stylish. For more modern day icons, I love Jennifer Aniston's understated glamour and I think Penelope Cruz always looks fantastic.
What can't you live without?
I would be completely lost without my moisturiser – I hate it when my skin feels dry. I really love Enlightenment Day Moisturiser, from my Psy-Derma collection, for a real moisture boost.
Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.
I am always happiest when I am comfortable, so I would have to say a really great fitting pair of jeans. I love Rock and Republic and J Brand – and a Gap T-shirt. That's when I really feel myself.
What's in your wardrobe?
I have lots of crisp shirts. I also have way too many pairs of jeans – too many to admit to!
What's your handbag like, and what is in it?
I really like a classic bag which is well cut, with clean lines, which is comfortable. I always carry my phone with me, a make-up bag and some skincare minis. Sadly, I also have lots of odd bits of paper and old tissues! My current bag is from Bottega Veneta, and is black and charcoal leather – I'm definitely not an "It-bag" type of person.
If you could live in any century, style-wise which would it be?
I am so thankful that I don't have to wear tight corsets and restricting clothes – I can't think of anything worse. I really think that women have it good right now: we can wear what we like, and mix and match according to our own personal style and tastes. And most of all, it means we can be comfortable!
How often do you look in the mirror?
At night and in the morning, when I'm applying make-up or applying my skincare. Whenever I do this, I really take the time to study my favourite features and try to concentrate on these, rather than the areas I feel less happy about. I recommend this to everyone – small steps like this really can boost your self esteem and if you are more confident you automatically look so much better.
Any fashion confessions you want to share with us?
I have the tiniest feet, so I tend to shop for trainers in children's shoe stores!
