CLAIRE FOY: ANATOMY OF MY OUTFIT
We caught up with the star of Little Dorrit and Upstairs Downstairs at a tea party held at the Kate Spade New York boutique in Chelsea to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show.
The 29-year-old actress is currently filming Vampire Academy with Olga Kurylenko and Gabriel Byrne.
‘It takes me about five hours to get ready,’ she told us. ‘I’m not very good at it – I spend a lot of time standing and staring at my wardrobe and not achieving much.
‘Then I suddenly think of something I want to wear only to discover it’s in the wash’
Jewellery I wear this Monica Vinader necklace every day. It was a gift from the producers when I did Macbeth with James McAvoy at London’s Trafalgar Studios. I love all of Monica’s designs and they make perfect presents. My bracelet is from Cos. I’m loving fluoro accessories for summer.
T-shirt This is from Asos – I’m a big fan of online shopping. I’m not sure why I chose this, but I do love Paris so I guess it makes sense.
Clutch bag I love the colour of this Kate Spade New York bag – everything this label does adds an instant injection of fun and style to your outfit. I want it all!
Trousers These cost me £10 in the Whistles sale about nine million years ago when I had an office job and needed to look smart every day. They are such a great fit and I’ve bought Whistles trousers ever since.
Shoes I call these leopard-print numbers my emergency shoes. I panic-bought them before I went to an awards do. They are by Mulberry and they weren’t cheap. But I now wear them whenever I have to dress up for something, so it makes it OK.
