Hattie Crisell spends three days a week as the Editor of My Redoute Magazine for French fashion brand La Redoute, and the rest of her time writing, eating and pottering around London. She loves fashion, cinema and ballet; once a week she dons her own ballet shoes and spends an hour doing very clumsy pirouettes in a room full of similarly unfit twenty-somethings.

She was previously editor of 4Beauty, Channel 4's fashion and beauty website, and was recently selected as one of Broadcast Magazine's Hot Shots.
