My favourite piece

I love the green ruffle lace-up maxi dress as I’m always drawn to pieces that have a mixture of structure and femininity. This dress does exactly that, accentuates the waist, cascading ruffles offering a sense of romanticism with an elegant deep forest green colour.

Preparation is essential for red-carpet glamour. Play around with your outfit, accessories, makeup and hair so you get a real sense of how the overall look makes you feel. Most importantly, you need to feel confident in your choice as this translates in your photos and can also affect how much fun your evening will be.

Be realistic with your shoes, we would all love to be wearing those fabulous seven-inch heels straight off the catwalk, but maybe the five-inch is the way to go. You’ll have a good time and make it all the way through the night.

Nails are very important for a look to be complete so a full mani-pedi the day before the event, plus plenty of sleep and water, are a must. A moisturiser with a small amount of self-tan also adds a healthy glow to skin.

My Cannes essentials include sunglasses, sunscreen, a good bikini and cover up and a nude pedicure.
