My Armani designer lift foundation, mascara and Skin Food, a German moisturiser I purchase through a health food store.
Q. Describe your number one fashion moment?
I don't think I have ever had a fashion moment. If I could I would wear a tracksuit every day of my life so I compromise by wearing a lot of black pants, dresses, jackets and tops.
Q. Who do you draw style inspiration from?
I hesitate to name someone I take inspiration from because I am very lazy about fashion. But I think Cate Blanchett always gets it just right, and I have always admired Jana Wendt simple, elegant approach to clothes. I think Kate Waterhouse has great style as does her mother Gai and I think Georgie Gardner gets it right every morning on the Today Show.
