Name: Nathalie Rykiel Occupation: CEO, Sonia Rykiel Company

Age: 'At the dawn of her forties' according to her press release.

Daughter of fashion designer Sonia Rykiel, Nathalie Rykiel has always been surrounded by fashion. She started her working life as a model and was the face of her mother's label. She was artistic adviser on the film Pret-A-Porter - director Robert Altman did most of his research at the fashion house - and was the inspiration behind one of the movie's pivotal characters. For the last 15 years she has orchestrated her mother's runway shows as well as being the company's CEO. We caught up with her while she was in town to promote her new fragrance, Rykiel Rose.

A lucky pink sapphire ring - 'I never take it off. I always wear it - even in bed.'
