Interests & hobbies
I am 10,000 words away from a BA in History of Art, which means that over the past five years I have spent a lot of time on the books. I am also a HUGE tennis fan. It’s just the best sport ever – which I play mediocrely and watch obsessively.
Top destination is New York City, where I dream of moving to one day. It’s just so incredibly vibrant and oozes that exciting sense of opportunity. Also, nothing beats the Greek islands for a beach holiday. All that blue simply blows me away.
Favourite beauty look
For me, less is more. A healthy glow, a good lengthening mascara that doesn’t clump and a matte red lip stain that doesn’t bleed.

Best skincare advice
Listen to your skin, it will tell you what it needs.
On feeling beautiful in your own skin
Generally speaking, I reject the idea of physical beauty being a value and I am much more of an advocate for inner beauty. Feeling beautiful could probably start by developing a strong sense of self-worth, a lifetime achievement which goes well beyond maintaining our looks.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. The tense atmosphere of doubt, lies and deceit in that book is described incredibly well.
Rebecca by Alfred Hitchcock. A classic tale of love and hate, what’s not to like? Also, Fontaine is fabulous in it as the demure yet resilient second wife.
Favourite TV show
30 Rock – Fey is incredibly funny and Alec Baldwin has the best and sexiest voice in the business. I embark on ‘30 Rock-athons’ as often as I can.
