Style secrets of the hip and fashionable
Designer and owner of ShoeGirl
Jeans. They go with everything so well. I prefer Korean jeans because they're cut better and they make your legs look longer. I also have a lot of slim-cut embellished T-shirts.
Suits. They don't look right on me. They're too serious for my lifestyle.
Handbag pick for this season?
I love the Chloe Paddington.
Favourite shoe designer?
There's no one designer that I prefer, but I'm very much influenced by the Japanese market because I've exported shoes to Japan since 1996. Japanese shoes are very feminine and ladylike.
A cashmere or pashmina scarf is always my best companion.
Most cherished fashion item?
A stylish Dolce & Gabbana coat. It's simple and black with a detachable belt, a little split at the cuffs, and, most importantly, signature leopard lining.
Audrey Hepburn. She was gorgeous and very feminine. I just love her style: the Capri pants, the full circle skirt with slim-cut T-shirts, the ballerina shoes, neat chignon and pearl necklaces.
Who'd design your Oscars dress?
It would have to be Badgley Mischka. I love the clean cut designs with all the beading and pearls. I'd like a cream, satin, full-length dress with little pearls and embroidery. The side of the dress would be tulle with Swarovski crystals sewn onto it.
Most expensive fashion item?
A Voyage pea coat. I really had to close my eyes when I passed the credit card to the sales lady.
Your fashion style?
It's very feminine, but I seldom wear dresses or skirts. I like to match jeans with detailed feminine tops.
Boho or ladylike?
Definitely ladylike. I'm a typical Libran. I'm elegant and feminine.
Flats or stilettos?
Both. I wear ballerina flats most of the time, and my favourite Casadei stilettos for evenings.
High-end or high street?
Both. Being able to mix and match is important. I buy from everywhere, including chains such as Giordano Ladies and select boutiques like Pink Martini.
I was 16 and wanted to look mature, so I borrowed my mother's one-piece dress. It was awful.
