Behind the Scenes – Five Minutes with Jess Coffrey
Posted on July 8, 2013
JESS COFFREY reveals her inner most secrets, from her love of Disney music to being a fan of Time Team.
What makes you happy?
I enjoy spending time with loved ones, going out for food and cinema trips and also…. Shopping! I like the feeling of buying something new and knowing it is yours (that, and I like buying pretty things!).
What’s your favourite fragrance?
Coco Mademoiselle from Chanel. It’s timeless. I’ve been wearing it since I was 16 years old because anything else I have tried just doesn’t match up to it.
What do you wear when you want to pile on the glamour?
Colour, colour, colour! I adore clothes that show off my figure for a night out. Fifties fashion plays a big part in this.
… and when you just want to chill?
My pyjamas and my novelty flamingo slippers. I am a massive child at heart so when I’m at home my he-man PJ trousers come out!
What was the last book you read?
A book about Charles Manson and the Manson family. It was very interesting and informative. Loved it!
What is on your ipod?
It goes from the Disney soundtrack right the way through to Rob Zombie. It depends what mood I’m in. I must say that the Disney soundtrack is great for when I’m house cleaning.
Describe yourself in five words:
Pale, interesting, fun, freak of nature!
What is your biggest fashion mistake?
When I was about 15 I wore some zebra print shorts with day glow pink footless tights and royal blue pointy flat shoes. I, unfortunately, will never forget this outfit.
What is your favourite meal?
I love eating steak and at Miller & Carter’s you can’t go wrong! The Fillet Wellington is amazing.
What was your dream job as a child?
I always wanted to be an archaeologist. I watched Time Team all the time and was fascinated with all the old artefacts they found. If I’m honest, this dream will never die deep down.
