A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the fabulous Chantelle from iStylista, she called me “inspirational” (here) and I fell in love with her! With an inflated ego I retuned the favour and asked her to give us a peek into her rather organised wardrobe. Here I talk to the brains behind the iStylista operation about dressing people for the Bafta’s (she wouldn’t tell me who) and munching triple chocolate goodies before noon…
First Fashion Memory
When I was knee high to a grasshopper I was a real Madonna fan – those Jean Paul Gaultier corsets were very iconic! I found her chameleon-like style incredibly inspirational and even today, regardless of her age she is able to admirably take on a different persona to suit where she’s at. It just goes to show that age is just a number.

There are so many! I couldn’t possibly name them all.
Most Expensive Item in your Wardrobe
My beautiful wedding dress that I can’t wait to wear in December.

Most Stylist Moment
Choosing a number of outfits for a client for the Bafta’s – pressure!
There has been numerous style icons throughout different stages of my life. With X Factor back on our screens Cheryl Cole has got to be high up there on my style icon list at the moment.
Favourite High-Street Store
Currently, I really like COS, Reiss and Ted Baker.
Fashion or Style
Definitely style. I love seeing peoples personalities coming through in their individual style.
Finally, what did you have for Breakfast this morning!?
I usually skip breakfast because I’m aways rushing out the door, naughty I know … however this morning I managed a bowl of triple chocolate and caramalised nut crisp! Yummy!
