I really love Venetia. Here is an old Q & A from 2005 UK Telegraph: Fashion junkie: Venetia Scott
Last Updated: 12:01am BST 14/09/2005
The London-based stylist Venetia Scott worked for numerous magazines including British and Italian Vogue, W, i-D and the Face, before becoming creative director of Marc Jacobs and its diffusion line, Marc for Marc Jacobs.
Her eclectic take on fashion has led to collaborations with the photographers Helmut Newton, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and her former partner Juergen Teller, father to her seven-year-old daughter, Lola.
'Marc Jacobs jeans are my staple items of clothing'Which piece from this season's catwalk shows is on your wish list? A black Louis Vuitton coat (vuitton.com). Which were your favourite shows this season? Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, of course. And I like Junya Watanabe for his singular vision. What do you wear to work? Working at home, anything I can throw on in under five seconds for the school run. Working abroad I try a bit harder: an easy Prada jersey dress, a Missoni dress or perhaps high-waisted Balenciaga pants. Which are the staple pieces in your wardrobe? Marc by Marc Jacobs jeans and a Marc Jacobs velvet tailcoat.
What is your failsafe look on days when you have 'simply nothing to wear'? T-shirt dresses, from Missoni or Prada. What would you wear on a hot date? Good undies, from Fifi Chachnil (fifichachnil.com). What has been your biggest fashion indulgence? A YSL biker belt in tooled leather which cost £475 and I never wore. It was way too big and drooped down my hips. Which is your favourite shop? Alfies Antique Market in Marylebone, London (alfiesantiques.com). Which is your favourite shop abroad? Paula Rubenstein in New York for vintage furniture (65 Prince Street; 00 1 212 966 8954). Who makes the best heels? Pierre Hardy (pierrehardy.com), and Marc Jacobs. Trainers? Converse. Who is your favourite jeweller? Alyssa Norton (alyssanorton.com), a young designer based in New York. I usually find jewellery burdensome, but she makes little pieces, ribbony bracelets and bangles, that seem quite personal. Who makes the best bedlinen? John Lewis. Which are your favourite hotels? The penthouse suites at the Mercer (mercerhotel.com) or the Maritime (themaritimehotel.com) in New York. I spend about a third of my year in hotels and when I find one I like, I keep going back. Which is your favourite bar? The Macanudo Fumoir at Claridge's (macanudofumoir.com). A great place for a few kir royales before a party. Coffee shop? Ottolenghi (63 Ledbury Road, London W11; 020-7727 1121). Restaurant? The Wolseley. It's very romantic but also the kind of place I can imagine going to with my parents. It's like Grand Central Station inside (thewolseley.com). Which moisturiser do you use? Dr Hauschka Rose Cream (drhauschka.com). What do you use in the bath? Penhaligon's Quercus soap (penhaligons.co.uk). Who cuts your hair? Real Hairdressing (Cale Street, London SW3; 020-7589 0877). What are your beauty tips? Be happy. Go on holidays.
I love how she likes Pierre Hardy and if you click on the link, you can see why.
