The daughter of rock and fashion royalty, Amber Le Bon is Britain’s model-of-the-moment and the face of the must-have O2 techie accessory, the HTC Rhyme phone, so we caught up with the brunette beauty to find out about her signature style, party tips and beauty essentials…
How would you describe your personal style?
I generally lean towards the darker colours, black, forest green and berry shades. I like to mix things up with fashion – it’s more fun that way. I go from being indie rock chic one day to more childlike and ditzy on another! I’ll mix a floaty dress with a leather jacket.
Which designers do you admire (and like to wear)?
Some of the designers that I really admire at the moment are actually two of the designers that I did London fashion week for – Mark Fast and Felder Felder. I love their clothes and I was so excited to do their shows, so it was a win/ win situation for me!
What do you do for an instant confidence boost?
If I’m not feeling super confident about an outfit or a little insecure – I’ll probably accessorize my outfit with some jewellery. I’m a bit of a magpie - I love sparkles and so wearing jewellery makes me feel more exciting and confident.
What trends will you be wearing this season?
I will probably not be wearing what’s on trend this season because I don’t really know. I will probably end up wearing something that was on trend about two seasons ago because I’m weird like that.
Your key colours for Autumn / Winter?
I think this season, as its autumn I will be wearing a lot of plum, dark browns, burnt orange – wintry/ earthy colours. Plum is definitely my colour this season and something we saw a lot of on the catwalks for this season.
What's your favourite outfit you've been pictured in, why? Where is it from?
A sequined Jonathan Saunders dress from AW11 in plum – hands down is my favourite for the season!
What are your tips for looking picture perfect / ready for a night out?
A tip for looking ‘picture perfect’ is probably a smile. I think everyone looks better when they are happy, you give off a glow – or at least that is what my mum would say!
I like to retain as natural a look as possible with make-up and my fave products are Diorskin forever foundation, but for my signature smoky eye I use Dior show mascara and their Rosy Nude eye shadow palette.
