Portrait by Oakmist Photography

Describe your style in five words: 
Creative, sexy, fun, feminine, eclectic 

What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe, why do you love it and where did you get it?
I absolutely adore a vintage faux fur coat that belonged to my grandmother! But I'd also have to say a dress from The Pretty Dress Company because I feel so sexy when I'm wearing it.

Who or what is your inspiration?
I get inspired by everything and everyone, it could be a colour, a story I heard, an article I read, a place I visited - daily life in general is a source of inspiration for me.

If you could borrow anyone’s wardrobe (living or dead) who’s would it be?
I’ve been researching costumes for my new upcoming burlesque acts and at the moment I’m absolutely fascinated by the designer Thierry Mugler. I wish I could live in at his atelier. . .

What’s the one thing you wouldn’t leave the house without doing?
Oh, I have to say I couldn’t leave the house without putting my red lipstick on!

What’s your top tip for feeling confident? 
It might sound like a cliche but I would say ‘to love yourself.’ Your strengths and weaknesses make you unique, just embrace it! 

What’s the last book you read? 
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

What’s your favourite song, band or piece of music? 
I have a very eclectic music taste but if I have to pick one I would say Whatever Lola Wants by Della Reese it always put a smile on my face.

What three things could you not live without? 
Only three?! Dancing, the people I love and chocolate!

What's your biggest achievement to date? 
When I left a promising ‘dream job’ in fashion to dedicate more time to my true passions: performing and modelling. It was a big and uncertain step but I’m glad I took the chance. 

What do you want to achieve before the end of the year? 
2018 is looking good already! There are a lot of cool projects in the pipeline but my biggest goal is to get even more opportunities performing and modelling abroad. 

Wild night out or cosy night in? 
I like both, depending on my mood. . . Can I choose both? I’m a Libra - I can’t make decisions!

Naughty French martini or green tea goodness? 
Can I pick green tea during the day and French martini in the evening?!

Dressed up or dressed down? 
I always feel my best when dressed up, but love my make up free /dressed down days too

Skirts or trousers? 

Introvert or extrovert? 
I think I’m an extrovert introvert 

Comedy or thriller? 

Call or text?

Truth or dare?

True vintage or brand spanking new?
I like both! 

If I could change the world in one way I would. . .  
I would stop with the hate and social inequality in the world.

What advice would you give your 15 year old self? 
Don’t worry about what other people think and relax - everything will be alright!! 

I am happiest when. . . 
I’m on stage or in front of the camera 

What’s your favourite What Katie Did piece? 
I’m a huge fan and I just love everything! The whole collection is amazing, but I’m in love with the New Extreme Morticia corset, it’s just gorgeous!
