Dress Code: Odile Dicks Moreaux, Costume Designer
Monday 08 March 2010
What are you wearing right now?
Jeans and a Vivienne Westwood cardigan and my grandmother's Hermès scarf.
Who's your style icon?
My French mother loved clothes and made them herself. She encouraged me in my to desire to do costume and it was definitely my French background that influenced my thinking for the film An Education.
What can't you live without?
My perfume. At the moment I'm wearing Stella McCartney, which my son chose for me.
Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.
Probably something crazy I made in the Seventies made out of either Liberty or Biba fabrics from the time.
What's in your wardrobe?
A lot of nice clothes that aren't practical for filming! Like most women, I admire a good piece and it never occurs to me that they wouldn't be suitable day-to-day. But that's not the point really about the clothes that you love, is it?
What is in your make-up bag?
Red lipstick; my daughters have stolen all of the rest of my makeup.
If you could live in any decade, style-wise which would it be?
I'd chosen either the 1940s for tailored style or the 1970s for romantic comfort. Of course, there are beautiful pieces from each and every decade but I have to confess to a fondness for these two periods in particular.
How often do you look in the mirror?
When I brush my teeth.
Any fashion confessions you want to share with us?
I love looking at beautiful original clothes from all periods and discovering how they're made. There is a story behind most pieces.
What's your secret style tip?
A silk scarf at the neck keeps colds away. That tip comes from the French actor Jeanne Moreau who is always impeccable.
Odile Dicks Moreaux was the costume designer for An Education, which is released on DVD and Blu-ray today
