I really wanted to start my first post of 2013 off with a very sizzling BANG!!! I've mentioned on here before my many fashion inspirations and one of them happens to be Jameela Jamil. Last week I thought I'd take a chance and be a little cheeky and ask her how I could go about getting her to answer a few questions for my blog, the next thing I know she had given me sometime to ask away some questions. I didn't want to push my luck so I only asked her five questions. I'd just like to quickly say ALWAYS be prepared with questions to ask someone you admire for your blog as you never know, you might be lucky enough to get that opportunity and you really don't want to be stuck for questions to ask. I asked her 5 fashion related questions and I really loved the answers she gave back. I even learnt things I didn't know about her before.
1.) What was your favourite fashion trend of 2012?
Leather. Hands down. Coloured leather, embellished leather, all of it. I wore a beautiful
studded leather skirt to LFW in February.
2.) What trend do you think we should look out for in 2013?
Brights. Yellow and orange are to continue to reign supreme. Fashion has become bolder and ballsier and it's important to have a pulse.
3.) What's your favourite statement piece to wear?
My statement pieces are good hats and statement bags. I love a fedora and wear them so frequently, I think people think i'm bald underneath!
4.) What made you so interested in fashion?
I've been painting and taking photographs since I was 12. I love art, and fashion is basically a beautiful dynamic artform you can wear.
My fashion inspiration designer wise, would be a tie between Dolce and Gabbana, William Tempest and Marchesa. They design to respect the curves of a woman's body. I always say, a woman's body is like a racetrack, you must be mindful of the curves and the bends. They are romantic designers that cater to strong but feminine women. I love them all. Fashion icon-wise. I think Kate Bosworth never gets it wrong without ever being dull. The same can be said for Olivia Palermo.
I just want to thank Jameela again for answering my questions and being super nice! I've decided that I'd love to continue interviewing people for my blog monthly, so hopefully next month I'll have someone else answering some of my burning fashion questions! :)
