What does glam­our mean to you?

I love the tra­di­tional def­i­ni­tion: to be charm­ingly, fas­ci­nat­ingly at­trac­tive, es­pe­cially in a mys­te­ri­ous or mag­i­cal way.

What are your most glam­orous items?

I love bold bracelets and cuffs, of­ten on both wrists. My hair is my crown­ing glory, com­mu­ni­cat­ing unique­ness. And my wardrobe is stocked with clothes de­signed by my Leop­ard Frock cre­ative team, which I love to layer ac­cord­ing to my mood.

Who is your style icon?

I’ve ap­plied my mind to this dif­fi­cult question with min­i­mal ef­fect. One rarely stops and stares, but I call the mo­ments when I do ‘un­ex­pected in­tru­sions of beauty’. Like the time I was scur­ry­ing through Paris when I gasped at the beauty of an el­e­gant grey-haired gen­tle­man dressed en­tirely in laven­der, in­clud­ing an em­bel­lished walk­ing stick.

What’s the best style ad­vice you’ve re­ceived?

From Lib­er­ace, the flam­boy­ant Las Ve­gas en­ter­tainer: “Too much of a good thing is won­der­ful.”
