Here she reveals a few of her favourite things
Designers My favourite designers are Givenchy and Chloé, but my favourite dress is by Yves Saint Laurent. I would describe my style as very simple.
Bags My most treasured accessory is a vintage bag that I bought in a flea market in New York about 12 years ago. During the day I normally carry a brown leather Mulberry bag, and for the evening, a black leather Theory bag that I have had for years.
Shoes I bought a pair of black Marc Jacobs boots about 10 years ago and I still wear them all the time. My favourite trainers are also by Marc Jacobs from years ago.
Jeans You can’t beat old Levi’s or jeans from Acne.
If you could shop in only one store It would be Decades on Melrose Avenue in LA that sells 20th-century vintage couture.
Hotel The beautiful Hotel Danieli by St Mark’s Square in Venice.
Hangouts My favourite restaurant in the world is Indochine on Lafayette Street in New York, and my favourite bar is Turks and Frogs, also in New York.
Hobbies I love reading and I am inspired by great writers. My favourite book is The Holy Sinner by Thomas Mann. Other hobbies include writing and psychology.
Facial For the best facial I go to Jackie at the SkinCareLab in New York.
Lipstick I wear colours from Lipstick Queen.
Mascara Voluminous by L’Oréal.
Skincare I can’t live without my eye cream by SkinMedica. I also use the moisturiser.
Perfect evening That would involve going somewhere in New York to listen to jazz. My favourite album is Ballads by John Coltrane. I also love going to the opera.
