Occupation… Stand up comedienne. Actress.
My style is… It varies between quirky to understated, sometimes a little dramatic. If I had my way, I’d wear a suit daily and draw on a little mustache maybe, but my boyfriend has warned me, he would run a mile.
The most treasured piece in my wardrobe is… A black crepe vintage dress with a HUGE silk black bow on the front. I was so inspired by Hamlet performed at the Old Vic, this was when Ben Wishaw played Hamlet. I went every week and that was the dress I would wear, I’d wear it with Chanel pumps. I was wearing this dress one of these performances, when I realized there was this magical element to acting. And I wanted to make contact with that, as a performer.
I take style inspiration from…Victoria/Victor Blake from the movie Victor Victoria.
My fashion week survival kit… One of my many gorgeous tailored blazers from Requisite Clothing based in Los Angeles, Colbert MD – Illumino Face Oil, pair sunglasses – any pair will do and some sort of gluten free food stuff – for the blood sugar and lip balm (very important) I nicked my boyfriends Carmex.
I Can’t live without…Maison Michel hats.
