Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore: What are your fashion “security blankets”?

Tabitha Nauser: An oversized or men’s jacket gives edge to an outfit and keeps me comfortable; while a baseball snapback cap is an easy cover-up for a bad hair day. And when all else fails, a good smoky eye does the trick.

HB: How has your personal style evolved over the years?

TN: I have a much better idea of what works and what doesn’t now, compared to not long ago where I just wore what I felt comfortable in. I’m not skinny, but I’ve been working out, and now, I have abs, so I try and accentuate that with a crop top, body jewellery or high waisted pants that, at the same time, create the illusion of longer legs.

HB: What do you love most about your Swiss-Indian mix?

TN: What I love most is strangely what I am most insecure about at the same time. I’m not saying it’s bad, but I have quite a wide jaw from my dad [who is Swiss], and a big mouth and sharp nose to match. I proudly flaunt these because I have this weird thing about a “nose with character,” a feature that really tells a story. But that doesn’t stop me from always contouring my face with makeup daily!

HB: How are you giving back to society?

TN: I try to help in any way that I can whenever possible, but usually, I use my voice. I have performed at charity shows for a number of organisations including the Singapore Cancer Society and the President’s Star Charity. I believe charity starts from home, so any small act of kindness is a step in the right direction. I would love to do more work in the future.

HB: What makes a woman truly stylish?

TN: I’ve always admired women who can throw on something really simple and look so effortlessly put-together. It’s a stylish confidence, a presence, a swagger, with the help of a well-fitted plain white t-shirt.
