We are so excited to be joined by one of the biggest BABES out there! Donna aka Sulky Doll is a stylist, fashion editor, brand ambassador and ‘An actual Fairy Dress Mother!’ She is such an Alegre supporter; always going the extra mile and doing everything she can in order to help. With a heart of gold we are holding on to this fabulous lady. Let’s get to it so we can have a lil gossip with THE fairy dress mother to discover a little bit more…
The wonderful Doll that is Sulky, thank you so much for joining us for FAB FIVE! Can you start off by telling us a little bit about yourself and your background...
Hello everyone and thank you so much for having me! I'm a Stylist who trained at the London school of styling and am the Fashion Editor of Riddle Magazine. As well as personal styling, I also have published editorials for both national and international brands and have extensive TV Wardrobe Stylist experience.
That’s so fab that you can do both journalism and styling! What is it about fashion that you love so much and how did you get in to styling?
I adore fashion and think how we dress is an extension of our personality. It's so important to feel good on the outside as well as the inside and everyone's style is so unique to them. It's like our fingerprint. I was always told I "had an eye" and so took the plunge in my 30's to retrain and I've never looked back.
We completely agree! Fashion is a way of giving people a snapshot of who you are! Good for you for taking the plunge and going for what you wanted! Can you tell us what your top styling tip is?
Top styling tip is to mix high end investment pieces with less expensive pieces to pull the look together. Head to toe designer rarely works or is practical. BUT mixing brands to create your look will create that all important "style" that is yours and yours alone.
Fab advice! It gives it that stamp doesn’t it?! So, who is your fashion icon and why...
Kate Moss! I love Brigitte Bardot and Bianca Jagger and Romy Schneider but I grew up with Kate and I just love how she gives women my age permission to dress like we want.
All we can say is what a woman! LOVE her style! She just has a way with making things look incredible! What's your brand to watch...
It has got to be Gary James McQueen! He is the late, great Alexander McQueen's nephew and he worked with him before he died. He is incredibly talented and Deffo one to watch. He's also very humble and a really nice guy which is not always the case in this industry.
Isn’t that the truth?! We absolutely loved Alexander McQueen so we are definitely going to have to check out Gary James McQueen! You heard it here first guys…ONE to WATCH!
Donna, such a pleasure as always! Thank you so much for your time and for always championing us, we cannot thank you enough.
