Judgement call

Inevitably, I am drawn to study this interview with one of the Man Booker Prize judges about her fashion life:

If you could steal the wardrobe of anyone - past or present, fictional or real - whose would it be?
Would it be boring to say Audrey Hepburn? But I would also have to steal her cheekbones.

If you could change one part of your body, which would it be?
My legs. I can't wear knee-length skirts unless I'm wearing knee-high boots.

What are your five desert island staples?
Apart from wrap dresses; knee-high boots, lipsticks, body scrub, a sense of humour and my hairdresser.

I love this line, "I spend most of my time as a badly dressed badger" as this mirrors my technique.

Yesterday I was wearing a black Comptoir des Cotonniers wrap dress, shoes with heels, jewellery and lipstick. Today it's jeans and a crumpled blue t-shirt from Gap, glasses and no make-up. My colleagues must think I have multiple personality disorder.
