this com­ing au­tumn. By Amy Yas­mine. What is your dress­ing-up rou­tine on a daily ba­sis? Fun­nily, I have to take my hair into con­sid­er­a­tion first. If it’s freshly washed, I know it will be big and curly by noon, which re­quires me to think ahead and put on a more bo­hemian type of at­tire. But if my hair is pulled back, I can go more clean and clas­sic. I usu­ally go for dresses in the sum­mer and trousers in the win­ter. How has your style evolved through­out the years? I think I’ve al­ways dressed the same. I’ve al­ways loved colours and cute, fem­i­nine clothes. In my teens, I had bad skin and dressed like a preppy ver­sion of Kurt Cobain. I was in­se­cure and didn’t feel pretty. That’s when I met my first boyfriend. He made me put on dresses again and “in­vented” the girl I am to­day. How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style? More of­ten than not, I dress in char­ac­ters. It’s re­ally easy for me to shift from min­i­mal to crazy at the drop of a hat. It all de­pends on the mood I’m in. But mostly, there is a lit­tle bit of hu­mour and some­thing “off ” about my out­fits. I’m never per­fect. What is your great­est wardrobe in­vest­ment? An ex­pen­sive Ba­len­ci­aga dress from years ago, and a Cé­line dress. Both are time­less so I con­sider them great in­vest­ments. New or vintage clothes? I pre­fer vintage! Favourite cities to visit? Tokyo, Ghent, Los An­ge­les, Barcelona and Is­tan­bul. Where do you shop? Usu­ally at vintage stores, and for shoes I go to the big depart­ment stores, such as Bar­ney’s and Bergdorf Good­man. What are you ex­cited to wear in Au­tumn/Win­ter ’15? More ’60s! But I never look that far ahead. By Septem­ber, I might be bored with all my short shift dresses and move onto some­thing com­pletely new. I tend to change my mind a lot. What is your favourite thing to wear right now? My green Saint Lau­rent ‘Candy’ shoes and a pink chif­fon vintage fairy dress. If you could wear just one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? A bikini. On a trop­i­cal beach. O n t he go in sp or ty plea
