FIVE MINUTES WITH … LISA PIDDINGTON
Our Fashion & Beauty Editor LISA PIDDINGTON reveals her secret crush and why a glass of Champagne is perfect with a vegetarian breakfast!
What do you wear when you want to pile on the glamour?
I have this gorgeous black net tutu that adds glamour to even the dullest skirt. That and my Prada heels.
And when you just want to chill?
Harem pants and one of my many pairs of Converse hi-tops. Just re-discovering Chipie trainers too – perfect for the school run!
What’s your favourite fragrance?
I am so loving Florabotanica from Balenciaga at the moment. I like a scent that few people wear but everyone comments on and this ticks the boxes.
What’s the last book you read?
I’m currently reading The World According to Garp – I love John Irving. Just finished Justin’s Cronin The Twelve. One word? Awesome.
What’s on your iPod?
Frank Sinatra, Dr Dre, Neneh Cherry, Steely Dan, Elvis Costelloe and Paramore. I think that’s what you call eclectic!
Describe yourself in five words?
Vivacious. Ballsy. Fashionista. Quick-witted. Creative.
What’s your favourite meal?
A great vegetarian breakfast with a glass of Champagne … morning, noon or night.
What was your dream job when you were a child?
I wanted to be a 1920s showgirl, or rather I wanted to be Tallulah from Bugsy Malone.
What makes you happy?
My kiddies – they’re cute as buttons, huge fun to be with and remind me that there is great joy in the simplest things in life.
