Gosford Park star, former face of Max Factor and stylish lady around town Camilla Rutherford tells us why she loves fifties screen goddesses. She walked through the door beautiful and bare faced but with just a lick of red lipstick was ready for her close-up. We’ve got a style crush!
If you had to list 3 must have items in your wardrobe what would they be?
3 must have items in my wardrobe would be; a great coat, a good pair of jeans and a timeless bag.
Can you remember your first item of clothing that made you feel like a grown up? What was it?
When I was about 12 I graduated from Benetton jeans to 501s, much cooler.
Do you have any major style faux pas?
Don’t over do it, it is so important to look relaxed whatever you are wearing.
Is there an piece of clothing you’ve always wanted to own? Why?
I would love a fur coat but still don’t have one. I want a great one but worry about the expense and cruelty to animals. I would like to get a kindly sourced one before I am 45. I would like to look like a 50s movie star- elegant and sophisticated, also like my mother and grandmother.
Would you say you are a shoes or bag girl?
Shoes date more so than bags, a good bag can last a lifetime, like my mother’s Hermes.
Do you have an all time favourite style purchase?
I love my Roger Vivier patent shoes- they make almost any evening frock look snazzy!
