Brands & Designers

Favorites: DKNY, Diesel, Miss Sixty

Stores: Selfridge’s, Harvey Nichols, Gap, Monsoon, Macy’s, Topshop, Bloomingdale’s, Barney’s

In London: “I go to Camden and Portobello Markets. They do one-off stuff and vintagey things, which I love.”

In General: “In Oxford, I go to Agnes B and the little boutiquey shops. Selfridges and Harvey Nicks in London. Do you know Sefton? It’s a chain of shops that stocks in-designers. There’s another chain called Divers that has really cool stuff.”

Jeans: “At the moment my favorite pair is probably my gray Sass and Bides.” (2007)

Cosmetics/Beauty Products:

Favorite Lip Gloss: Stila

Favorite Perfume: DKNY Be Delicious (“I’m really bad – I hardly ever wear perfume – it doesn’t do anything for me. A lot of perfume is really heavy and yuck, but this I absolutely love. It’s not like wearing perfume, it’s like wearing something that smells sweet and nice.”)

Her Quotes

“I’ve never had a stylist before, but this time, because of the scale of the publicity stuff I’ve had to do, I’ve had some help. I’ve still been really involved, though.” Evening Standard, November 2005

“I would say I’ve always been a bit crazy with fashion. I wear what I feel comfortable wearing. I care but not hugely. I wouldn’t say fashion dominates my life. I’m quite casual and quite practical – I wouldn’t freeze to death in a skimpy outfit! I’d say, ‘It’s cold, for God’s sake!’ I think I’m a good mixture.” Girls’ Life, Dec/Jan 2006

“I started to realize in the last film that people were starting to care [about what I wear]. It sounds crazy, but it never occurred to me that people would care what I was wearing. When it hit home, it was a strange moment. I think for me, fashion has always been

something that is fun. I’ve always loved clothes and I think it is important how I choose to dress, because it IS how I’m presenting myself to the rest of the world. I think it’s worth looking good, but it’s fun at the end of the day. I’m a teenager and I’m experimenting and having fun with clothes and developing my own

tastes and ideas, so I’m not really set in any particular thing.” Movie Magic Winter 2005

“It’s hard enough being my age without listening to people’s different opinions about what you wore or what you said.” ELLEgirl Dec/Jan 2006

“Just be comfortable in what you’re wearing. Dress for who you are, and how old you are – don’t try to be anything else.” ELLEgirl, Dec/Jan 2006

“I don’t have a stylist yet. A lot of clothes I pick out with my mom or friends. I quite like that – having my own sense of style and feeling like when I go out there, it’s me.” ELLEgirl, Dec/Jan 2006

“I’m a bit all over the place.” People, 2004

“Whenever I dress up, I want the clothes to be an expression of me. I don’t think you should be a clothes horse. Someone telling me what to wear takes all the fun out of it.” Tatler, July 2007

“I don’t have a stylist, as I seem to have a problem with them, but I have a relationship with Chanel. It makes life much easier, because I don’t really have to think about it.” Stella, 2007
