Your first ever dress was: An enormously fluffy white Christening dress. I obviously cried when it got wet.
Your oldest dress: A long white shirt that I tie and wear as a dress. That counts, eh?
Your most expensive dress: …is from Alexander McQueen. Definitely more of a collector’s item, for me!
Seen the most dancefloors: A very, very sparkly black mini. Comfort is key, so it really delivers.
Favourite dress: I could never, ever choose just one!
What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? A dinner party, where I wore a hand-made baby blue peplum dress. Love my peplums.
Mini or Maxi? Mini! I’m only 5ft 2!
Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Recently, it has been Selena Gomez. There is always something quirky in her look without venturing too far away from classic bombshell silhouettes.
What is your most memorable dress moment? When my (very necessary) dress strap broke during a dance recital. Memorable for all the wrong reasons!
Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? This fabulous Carven dress: http://hire.girlmeetsdress.com/collections/new-dresses/products/striped-cut-out-dress – A great option for curvy ladies with tiny waists!
As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress complement your life? Affordability! As a stylist, impact is created through unique (and often expensive) designs. Being able to rent a dress cuts costs in half, at least.
