Dress Code: Lulu, singer

What are you wearing right now?

A great Rick Owens cardigan, along with my favourite J Brand jeans with flats for day, usually Lanvin, or heels at night – mostly Louboutin.

Who's your style icon?

I love Michelle Obama! She's so of-the-moment and so real, not dressing up or playing a part, she knows herself and knows her style and looks confident in that knowledge.

What can't you live without?

I carry my Time Bomb Smart Eye Balm around and dab it on all day long – I'm obsessed. If your skin doesn't look good,nothing else does.

Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.

A show-stopping Alexander McQueen dress for Elton and David's wedding. You can imagine the outfits that were worn that day!

What's in your wardrobe?

A lot of old favourites at the moment - Jil Sander, Chanel, Stella McCartney - all mixed with H&M and Topshop, of course.

What's your handbag like, and what's in it?

I have a huge Goyard tote that I can fit my entire life into. Hairbrush, water, BlackBerry, iPhone, Hermès wallet, Ray-Ban Wayfarers and Aviators (you can never be too careful) and an Anya Hindmarch make-up bag.

If you could live in any century, style-wise, which would it be?

I'd like to go back to the first half of the 20th century. Nowadays, there is less and less time to smell the roses. I'd like to live at a time when things were simpler, and there was more integrity and ease to life.

How often do you look in the mirror?

Who needs a mirror? I check my reflection in any shiny surface!

Any guilty pleasure / fashion confessions you want to share with us?

Uggs. They look hideous, we all know that, but they are so comfortable! I have the sense never, ever to be photographed in them. But they're like old friends sitting at the foot of the bed, beckoning. In fact, I think I'll go and put them on now.
