Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK - - words: har­riet davey @har­riet.davey

Lon­don-born but La-raised, Har­ley Viera-new­ton is as cool as she is la­dy­like. An It girl in her own right, you’ll usu­ally find her grac­ing Fash­ion Week FROWS with close pals At­lanta De Cadenet Tay­lor and Poppy Delev­ingne, or spin­ning decks at the hottest in­dus­try par­ties. She’s even been signed as an am­bas­sador for Dior, and cre­ated fash­ion line HVN, which counts Se­lena Gomez and Emily Rata­jkowski among its loyal le­gion of fans. She’s got a lot on her plate, so we’re amazed she’s also found time to team up with footwear brand But­ter­fly Twists to launch her very own shoe cap­sule. We caught up with the 30 year old to chat celeb crushes and style tips, and were left sub­se­quently think­ing that we could all do with be­ing a lit­tle more Har­ley...

Har­ley, huge con­grat­u­la­tions on your new shoe col­lec­tion! What’s your favourite style? Thank you! I’ve al­ways worn es­padrilles, so I’m in­stantly drawn to the ging­ham rib­bon-ties. How would you style them? Def­i­nitely with indigo denim or a lit­tle sun­dress. But­ter­fly Twist is known for its fold­able shoes – do you pre­fer flats to heels? I love both, but pumps are so com­fort­able. Peo­ple al­ways ask me how I DJ in heels but, what they don’t know is, I al­ways have a pair of flat shoes in my bag to change into when I fin­ish my set. How many pairs of shoes do you own? I’m kind of a loyal shoe-wearer rather than a col­lec­tor. I’ve got quite a few, but I tend to wear the same styles on re­peat. What’s the best piece of style ad­vice you’ve ever been given? From a young age, my mum al­ways en­cour­aged me to have fun with fash­ion and to not take it too se­ri­ously. When you truly do this, you can un­lock your own per­sonal style and wear what makes you feel your best. Dior is one thing, but are there any high street brands that you love? I’m a die-hard Top­shop girl. I grew up in Lon­don and I re­mem­ber my first trip to Top­pers. I used to get so ex­cited for our monthly vis­its.

You’re a de­signer as well as a style icon – what’s it like when stars wear pieces you’ve cre­ated? It’s crazy! The ex­cite­ment never goes away. I feel very lucky to have had so many amaz­ing ladies wear­ing my de­signs. The first celebrity to wear one was dur­ing the week HVN launched, and it was Mar­got Rob­bie! It was the first time I saw one of my dresses on any­one, let alone a movie star. Then Se­lena Gomez wore one to Coachella and ev­ery­thing blew up. Yep, that was pretty crazy, too. Who would you love to see wear­ing your de­signs? Ri­hanna, for sure. She’s my num­ber one, so that would be the dream. Hope­fully she reads this! Whose In­sta Sto­ries do you watch? Cardi B, for sure. She’s a leg­end and ev­ery­thing she puts up is hys­ter­i­cal. Red lips are your beauty sig­na­ture – what do you use to cre­ate the look? Nars Lip Pen­cil in Red Square and MAC’S Ruby Woo Lip­stick are my fail-safes. I al­ways feel con­fi­dent with a red lip. It’s the end of the night – which song do you fin­ish your set with? Heart­breaker by Mariah Carey. It’s on most of my playlists.
