Among her myriad accolades and numerous professional milestones – from art directing nearly 100 covers of Harper’s Bazaar UK to being appointed the British Fashion Council’s official ambassador in Los Angeles – the iconic stylist now helms the fashion team at C Magazine, splitting her time between America and the UK.
