MY FASHION WEEK: MARGO STILLEY

15.02.13

Taking over from our New York counterparts, it's London's term to host the world's style set, so we're kicking off London Fashion Week by catching up with actress and former-model, Margo Stilley, to ask her our quick fire questions. From fashion week essentials to that ‘pinch yourself’ moment, if you can’t be on the frow yourself, live vicariously through Margo.

Name the 5 essential items in your fashion week kit?

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, a large tote bag, a versatile fur coat, Alka-Seltzer, and a driver.

What’s your favourite designer/muse pairing?

Isabella Blow and Lee McQueen/Philip Treacy.

What’s your most anticipated show?

Saint Laurent, Prada, Ulyana Sergeenko.

Front row etiquette – is anything off limits?

Be nice!  Unless you're there for work and have to scribble on a piece of paper, make conversation with your neighbours.  Talk about fashion and what you like, what you hope to see and what inspires you!  It adds so much to the experience.  Also, cross your legs. Nobody wants to see that.

What’s your most treasured fashion item ever?

My first gift from a fashion house:  a Gucci mink coat.  It arrived at my house with a bouquet of flowers after I did a fashion shoot for them and I nearly passed out!  I'll always cherish it.

Tell us your ‘pinch yourself’ fashion moment?

Watching Daphne Guinness put eyeliner on Rankin at a dinner in Rome.

Stay tuned for more LFW posts throughout the week.
