(Festive) Fashion Five: Amber Le Bon

What's the secret to looking good when it's freezing outside?
Get a really good coat that will last a couple of years and that you can't wait to put on when the weather starts to turn. I wore one on a shoot recently that was amazing, so warm and stylish, you could just wear jeans and a jumper underneath and feel really great. It is the dark purple fur coat from Chelsea Girl by River Island. And a steal at ??65!

What was the best thing your mother taught you about fashion?
My mum is great for keeping hold of old classics - pieces of clothing that never age and never go out of fashion. She also says, Make sure you always smile - it makes everything look better!

What will you be wearing on Christmas day this year?
To me the most important thing is to wear something that I love and feel comfortable in and Christmas is a great opportunity to get one of my old favourites out. I may go for my Jonathan Saunders dress from autumn/winter 2011 in plum - one of my definite favourite things to wear at the moment!

What style advice would you give to girls who want to look really wow at their Christmas parties?
I always accessorise with jewellery. I am a bit of a magpie; I love sparkles and so wearing jewellery makes me feel more exciting and confident too! In terms of 'look', I love a smoky eye and tend to use Dior's eyeshadow palette in Rosy nude with a really good eyeliner. Never leave home without a great gloss: Dior Addict Perfecto is one of my faves.

When you're getting ready to go out, which song always gets you in the mood?
Getting ready to go out is sometimes the best part! I put my HTC Rhyme into the dock so it becomes a stereo, then I put on a playlist - at the moment I am listening to a lot of Elastica and PJ Harvey, which are great to hear before I head out for the evening.
