Guest Edit : Miss Molly

This month’s editors picks come from TV and film costume designer, fashion columnist and celebrity stylist Miss Molly!

  • Got any fashion loves or hates?

    "Currently I am all over Oxford bags (that’s high waist loose fitting pants to us)! So for me skinnies are out, but fashion is so cyclical I never hate anything as you never know when you might change your mind."

  • How would you describe your style?

    "French with an Olsen twins twist"

  • Most adored item in your wardrobe?

    "The emerald green silk 1969 Mark Bolan designed Christian Dior couture dress. It has a camellia on the shoulder – which is the symbol of Chanel. Apparently Chanel tried to copyright the camellia, but could not, so Bolan cheekily put one on this one dress to mock them."

  • Perfect spring day outfit?

    "A vintage printed voluminous knee length skirt (cotton or silk) with a t-shirt, denim jacket, a pair of Sophia Webster pumps, and bare legs!"

  • Tips for transeasonal styling?

    "I love jackets and coats. The amount of them that I own is frankly obscene. However, at this time of year they come into their own as I layer jackets under vintage duster coats for extra warmth and to give good layer peelage on the tube."

  • You’ve worked with some awesome people, who have you most enjoyed working with?

    "Joe Gilgun, I worked with him on ‘Misfits’ and he is one of the most incredible human beings I have ever met. He is exciting to collaborate with and dress, he is a true talent and I just think he is so special."

  • Who in fashion would you most like to meet or work with?

    "Bill Cunningham, if he took my picture my life would be complete."

  • Name one item no stylist should be without and why?

    "Brooches. If it doesn’t fit someone, make it!"

  • Do you have any advice for someone wanting to get involved with styling?

    "Studying fashion design and technology I think is the best way. After studying be prepared to assist your knee high Miu Miu socks off! The hours are long and you need to be cheerful, helpful and happy all the time, oh yes and keep your receipts! "

  • What are your favourite trends for SS14 and what trends do you see emerging for AW14?

    "That glorious pale pink silk courtesy of Marc by Marc Jacobs SS14 collection; one season is simply not enough time for it."

  • What tune/artist can you not get enough of right now?

    "Young Americans by Bowie – its on the Frances Ha soundtrack which is on repeat, and it always feels like Spring is coming…"
