Who is your style icon?
Phoebe Philo because she’s minimalist, chic and effortlessly stylish. It’s the reason why I also love Céline, where she’s Creative Director. Phoebe has a way of turning simple garments into something quite extraordinary when it falls on the body. I think she makes well-cut and comfortable clothes that have that bit of wit to it.

What’s your shopping personality like?
I shop via Instagram and I am a decisive shopper. I’m also an accidental shopper but I don’t regret my purchases. I save my shopping sprees for overseas. I am definitely not a hoarder but when it comes to shopping, I buy in bulk because I have no time.

Is there something you can’t get enough of?
I have a crazy fetish for white bags!

Talk us through your skincare routine and beauty essentials.
I rinse my face with only water in the morning because I have very dry skin. After that, I use a mist, a customised My Daily Dose serum, moisturiser, BB cream and sunscreen. I do my makeup in the car, not at home. My effortless skincare routine in the morning takes less than one minute. All in all, I only take 10 minutes to prep before going out.

What would you tell your 18-year-old self?
That the road to having youthful skin comes from daily maintenance and not sleeping with your makeup on.
