When I look in the mirror I see... One eyebrow slightly more raised than the other, a big mane of hair and big lips that I used to hate when I was a child, but now I really love them and like to wear red lipstick. It's been a journey of acceptance for me, but your opinions about how you look definitely change over time.

If I was stranded on a desert island with one dress it would be... I can't mention any labels here because I think I'd want the old faithful stretchy black mini dress - it always looks good! Plus, it's practical. You could hike it up and wear as a vest with denim cut-offs during the day and then it's cool to wear at night as a dress too.

When I was at school I wanted to be... An athlete. Specifically a 100 metre sprinter. I used to run for my district (St. Ives) and I reckon I could still whack out a pretty good personal best.

My biggest style triumph was... Actually quite recently at the Vogue Festival after party. I wore a silk fuchsia Shakuhachi dress with a white envelope clutch and I feel like I really pulled it off. Sometimes you have to brave the bright colours - I can be very stuck in my ways.

If I could be any character from film or literature I'd be... Storm from X-Men because she strong, powerful and know how to rock white hair and make it work.
