What are your must-have fashion items for autumn/winter?

"A leather aviator jacket, suede ankle boots, navy and cream angora jumpers and the Rihanna for River Island gold party dress!"

Are you a high street or a designer girl?

"Like most people I mix which is more fun. I am currently obsessed with Zara, Whistles and COS, and new season Richard Nicoll, L'Wren Scott and Narciso Rodriguez."

Biggest fashion disaster?

"During the years of Popworld were my worst fashion mistakes, particularly one outfit which consisted of a pleated cheerleader skirt and Timberlands!"

Which celeb have you met and thought: 'I wish I could be her!'

"Emma Thompson, she was very wise and kind which are both attributes I hope to gain."

Out of all the celebs you've met, who do you think has the best style?

"I've always liked British women's style throughout the ages. Saying that, I am currently boring all my friends with my Nicole Richie obsession. She just kills it with her evening looks and accessories every time."

And who has the worst?

"I don't think there is such a thing as bad style, because it's just about how you're feeling that day. All about the mood!"

Have you met anyone, looked at their make-up and and thought: 'What were they thinking?!'

"Not really, I've only just begun to get into make-up so I'm constantly looking to be inspired at the moment."

What are your beauty essentials?

"NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder, £26, YSL Mascara, MAC Eye Brows, £13 (currently obsessed!), MAC Divine Night Lipstick in Prepare for Pleasure, £16.50, NARS Killing Me Softly Blush Palette, £30, and MAC Lipsticks in Ruby Woo and Angel, £15.

You attended Millie and Professor Green's wedding, what did you think of her dress?

"Millie's dress was beautiful and exactly what she wanted. She showed me her ideas very early on and she knew exactly what she wanted from the start."

Millie's a make-up artist, so has she given you any beauty tips?

"She hasn't, but with my new obsession with make-up I will be turning to her very soon!"

What did you wear to the wedding?

"A Zara floral pencil dress. It felt very '90s Dolce & Gabbana' to me, which was really fun."
