Laura Bailey, Contributing Editor at British Vogue

Starting her professional life as a model in New York City, Laura Bailey was quick to realize that she could turn her passion for travel and aptitude for creativity into a thriving career. Visiting the farthest corners of the earth, writing, photographing and documenting as she goes, the Notting Hill-based style icon and entrepreneur has made an art of having fingers in many pies. Aside from ambassadorial roles at British Vogue, the British Fashion Council and Save The Children, she’s also earned a coveted position among Chanel’s ‘Les Fidèles’ – the designer’s hand-picked representatives.

Before she embarks on her next grand adventure, we caught up with Laura on solid ground to find out exactly how she cheats the week.


My friends call me:

From Kilimanjaro to Rajasthan to Sri Lanka, your travels have been many! Do you

If you could visit a destination from literature, real or fictional, past or present,

In your ‘room with a view’, what would the view be of?

City escape, beach holiday, snowy retreat or rural adventure? What does the
perfect holiday look like to you?

You’re off on a week-long holiday. Are you carry-on-only or do you pack
everything and the kitchen sink?

What are your carry-on essentials?

What is your failsafe airport outfit?
