- No one does effortless style better than the British supermodel, which makes her fashion commandments a must-read...
1 EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN... A really good pair of jeans, a black tuxedo jacket and a little black dress. My go-tos for a lazy Sunday are jeans, a tank top, a jacket and boots.
2 INVEST IN GREAT SHOES… They will make an outfit feel polished, cool and put together. You can go from day to night just by sticking a heel on.
3 SUMMER STYLE SHOULD BE EFFORTLESS… I like wearing floaty chiffons and soft suede. Maxi dresses are great because you
can wear flats with them – wearing heels on a beach is ridiculous.
4 TAKE INSPIRATION FROM A STYLE ICON… I would like to steal clothes from Anita Pallenberg, but she has already given me most of her stuff! Patti Smith is another of my style icons. Musicians inspire my creativity.
5 VINTAGE IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA… I have a vintage jacket that influenced the leather fringed style in my new Topshop collection (below left). I wear it with denim shorts for gigs. Look for quality and pieces that can be repaired if needed.
6 ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET… I organize my everyday denim, leather and dresses by color, although my jeans are usually black and gray. I archive other pieces and photograph everything so I have a record of the last time I wore it. If jeans are too small, I give them to my godchildren or Oxfam.
