Your best fashion investment piece?

‘I have two - a timeless leather jacket and a really good bag. A couple years back my Dad bought me a Prada bag when I started full-time modelling and I still use it to this day. If you take good care of those pieces they’ll last forever.’

Your top three skincare products during Fashion Week?

‘Definitely Bioderma Miceller Water make-up remover because it’s so gentle. At the moment I really like Weleda Skin Food, it’s so nourishing. Then at the end of the day I use my Clarisonic Skin Brush to really clean my make-up off.’

Favourite fashion week moment ever?

‘Definitely last season when I did the Prada show; the night before I was up until 3am waiting to hear if I was going to make it and finally I got the call. They bleached my hair and fit me for the clothes. That was my career changing moment, it was so exciting.’

Latest iPod download?

‘Beyonce’s new album and I listen to Lana Del Ray to chill out.’

Favourite place to shop in London?

‘I’ve heard that the Topshop is amazing, even better than the one in New York.’
