Previously ELLE UK’s Editor at Large and now working as a freelance fashion editor, columnist and writer, Stacey Duguid fronts our coveted REISS LIVE campaign. On the blog, she talks us through her Top Tips for LFW, from what to pack in your make-up bag to the art of making trainers look chic.

'During London Fashion Week the shows start early and end late so a well-cut tailored suit, which happens to feel very 'right' for now, works with both high heels or crisp, white trainers.  I've always been a fan of a tailored suit with trainers because it's cool, carefree and contemporary but still smart and pulled-together.'

Which show do you most look forward to seeing?

'In London it's Christopher Kane for creativity, Roksanda for her amazing vision of what a woman could be and Burberry for the front row, the venue, the music and the sheer scale of the catwalk.'   

What are your three beauty must-haves for fashion month?

'Everything by Charlotte Tilbury namely her Retoucher for under eye dark circles, Wonderglow  to feel youthful on zero sleep, Rock'n'Khol Eyeliner for every occasion.'

How do you switch up your look from day to night? 

'Apply lashings of distracting red lipstick, (see our previous perfecting the red lip blogpost) pop on sky-high heels and hope for the best!'
