What’s your morning beauty routine? Any advice for us?

If I wake up looking tired and puffy, I fill a sink with ice and cucumber and submerge my face. It tightens everything making you look and feel instantly awake. It is a bit Joan Crawford – but it works!

You’ve travelled the globe many times over. What’s your foolproof tip for beach-ready skin?

I exfoliate with a body scrub beforehand to ensure I get a good even tan. I always use SPF and I do plenty of Pilates before I get there.

Who is your ultimate beauty icon?

I’m into that glamorous Studio 54, ultra-glam era. Like Jerry Hall. I love that Seventies girl who was sexy – she had the hair, the lipstick and the all-round glamour; they were ready for anything – most importantly, a good time.

What’s your biggest inspiration?

I love photographic books. Especially those about houses and gardens. Also music, I was watching The Rolling Stones films which are quite inspiring and all of a sudden I was finding tasselled leather jackets in my wardrobe – very Mick Jagger. David Bowie also really inspires me. I love old films and movie stars, I’d love to look like Veronica Lake.

You’ve had an iconic career to date, but is there anything you’d still like to achieve?

I have had a go at singing in the past with Bobby Gillespie [from Primal Scream] and Jason Spaceman for Spiritualized. It was really fun doing it, but I don’t think I will ever be in the charts! You don’t know though, never say never. But singing isn’t a focus for me. Fashionwise, I have been so fortunate to work with the best photographers. But there’s one man I’d love to work with, Spanish photographer Javier Vallhonrat. I adore his pictures.

St Tropez is available at st-tropez.com and from Boots, Superdrug, Debenhams, Selfridges and salons nationwide
