The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - HOW I MAKE IT WORK -

Iwork with lots of fash­ion houses in Europe so I check my emails as soon as I wake up at 7am, and if I have time, I’ll get on the el­lip­ti­cal ma­chine for 20 min­utes while do­ing so. Other than that – and the fact I never miss my cof­fee with a full break­fast – I don’t have a typ­i­cal work­ing day.

Ear­lier this year I flew to the East Coast two Sun­days in a row for less than 24 hours on the ground each time. One trip was to New York to fit Amanda Seyfried for the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again press tour, and the other was to Wash­ing­ton, DC to fit Won­der Woman star Gal Gadot.

This week is par­tic­u­larly busy with prep as I have three shoots in a row com­ing up: a Harper’s Bazaar cover with Ju­lia Roberts, an­other shoot with Am­ber Val­letta, and then I’m back with Ju­lia for Lancôme. I’m con­stantly busy and I do get stressed. I have as­sis­tants and I or­gan­ise my­self us­ing my Ap­ple cal­en­dar, but there are just so many de­tails to re­mem­ber and so much hap­pen­ing at the same time. This means that, apart from the el­lip­ti­cal ma­chine, I don’t of­ten get any ex­er­cise. I re­ally miss the walk­ing I did when I lived in New York – in LA, our cars are our sec­ond home; mine has red seats and per­son­alised plates.

Day to day, it takes me shock­ingly lit­tle time to get ready as I wear a lot of dresses. It only takes longer when my daugh­ter Ivy, 19, has stolen what­ever it is I want to wear and I have to go look in her room.

I try to spend any evenings at home with my hus­band Rob. We used to curl up and watch movies, but now, with the state our coun­try is in, we watch Rachel Mad­dow’s pol­i­tics show. I like to read be­fore bed, but I’m of­ten stuck check­ing emails be­cause of the time-dif­fer­ence is­sue.
