Model and IT girl Daisy Lowe exclusively reveals her style secrets, go-to labels and most prized piece of clothing …
MY DAY-TO- DAY STYLE is quite utilitarian: a pair of vintage 1970s jeans, a soft cotton T-shirt from James Perse, and a pair of combat boots. I have a bit of an adventurous spirit, so I like clothes to give me a sense of freedom. I don’t like to feel constrained by what I wear. Having said that, there’s a time and place for a great pencil skirt. For my birthday night out, I wore a Latex dress! On the high street, Topshop and ASOS always work for me, and Zara – whenever I spot someone looking fabulous in an item of clothing, it’s always from Zara!

WOMEN WITH GREAT STYLE always look like they have great confidence too. I think that comes from wearing something you feel good in. I know if I wear clothes that are too tight and feel uncomfortable, I won’t have a good day. Katharine Hepburn is my style icon. She always looked feminine and powerful. There was something very modern yet timeless about her look.

ETHICAL FASHION has always be important me. I’m a big fan of Edun and Ali Hewson.

I ALWAYS FEEL SPECIAL when I wear Saint Laurent. My most outrageous purchase was a Saint Laurent burgundy velvet jacket embellished with gold beaded stars. I had to justify it to myself by rationalising that it would become a family heirloom!

ERDEM AND DOLCE & GABBANA are my go-to labels. They exude glamour. I love to wear vintage, too; in particular, pieces from the 1930s and 1970s, although the former is becoming harder to find.
