Fragrance: Issey Miyake. 'His perfumes are light and subtle and last for a long time on my skin. An ambulanceman once asked what perfume I was wearing as he was accompanying me to hospital after a road accident.'

Skin care: Botanics. 'Its vitamin-recovery mask is my secret to recharge my tired and dull skin. It only takes 10 minutes.'

Make-up: 'Red Earth's eye definer and mascara are easy to apply and have staying power, even in summer. I love Giorgio Armani's sheer blush as it gives my face a natural healthy complexion.'

T-shirt: a Mao Zedong-print T-shirt. 'I bought it in a Shanghai store. I get a lot of attention every time I wear it.'

Jeans: J.Crew. 'Their jeans have a good cut. I also love their deep-blue colour.'

Pets: 'My cat, Amber. She is an adorable Scottish blue-grey-haired breed and has golden-yellow eyes. That's why I gave her that name.'

Movie: Cinema Paradiso. 'I am always moved by it, no matter how many times I see it.'

Car: Citroen 2CV Dolly.

What's on your bedside table: 'Two alarm clocks. They make sure I wake up.'

Cannot live without: 'Sleep. I love it - it's good for my mind, skin and health.'

Most recent purchase: 'A Philippe Starck washbasin and toilet for my new apartment.'

Two things you'd take to a desert island: 'A camera and a big, empty bag to collect sand or whatever objects I find.'
