We fell head-over-heels for dancer Stephanie when she first stepped in the studio back in April. This beautiful English rose has got the super-hot-girl-next-door thing nailed. She’s always on the go but we managed to catch up with her last week and get the scoop on everything from her essential beauty products to her childhood dreams.
My biggest style influence:
I really admire the effortless cool of Mary Kate Olsen but I don’t try to imitate it. The biggest influence on my style comes from films, Angelina Jolie in Changeling, Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, Rita Hayworth in You Were Never Lovelier and Grace Kelly in High Society are some of my favourites.
My favourite trend for this season is:
My favourite album is:
My taste in music constantly changes with my mood but I love movie soundtracks my favourite probably being: The Moulin Rouge soundtrack
When I was a kid I wanted to be:
A performer. I really wanted to be an actress or a singer, but I really can’t sing! When I was 8 I started dancing and have never looked back!
My plans for this summer:
Most of my time will be spent dancing, I have a few projects on the go at the moment; the one that I’m most excited for is the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics! When I can I like to go to the theatre with friends, my favourite being the RSC is Stratford-upon-Avon.
My favourite beauty product:
Moisturiser! I could live without make-up but not without my moisturiser! Although from shooting with the Siren London team I have fallen in love with GIVENCHY le prisme blush!
My favourite book is:
Trying to pick my favourite book is tough! I like a compelling series like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and I grew up readin Harry Potter but Sebastian Faulks ‘Charlotte Gray’, Charlotte Brontë ‘Jane Eyre’ and Ian McEwan ‘Atonement’ are also among my favourites.
The greatest advice I’ve ever been given:
Is something I’ve read: ‘always be a first rate version of yourself not a second rate version of someone else’ In my line of work I find myself constantly being compared to someone else and it takes courage to stand up for who you want to be and not who someone else expects you to be.
What I do to relax is:
Reading or watching a film; anything with Leonard DiCaprio or Fred Astaire in.
My favourite thing to eat is:
My top 5 favourite Siren London products:
1. Aalia Lace Dress – I can just imagine wearing this dress with finger curls in my hair. a real throw back feel to the 1920.
3. Marc my Daisy Earrings – I first bought Daisy by Marc Jacobs in 2008 because I loved the bottle and I’ve worn it ever since! So these earing are the perfect accompaniment.
4. Hetty Polka Dot Dress – I never wear blue but I simply LOOOOVE this dress, it reminds me of the classic Hollywood style with the full skirt and cinched in waist. It’s one of those garments that instantly makes you feel feminine and pretty. When I wore it I just want to dance and swish around!
