What do you think about when you're walking down the runway?

I'm just trying to look as alright as possible I guess. Oh and trying not to fall over. The best way to do that is to find a point at the end of the runway and focus on it.

Who taught you the modelling ropes?

No one! I was kind of just thrown in at the deep end. It's a proper sink or swim situation and I think I've just about got my head above the water. I'm still learning and trying not to drown.

What are your Fashion Week beauty tips?

Always wash your face. Even after a long day and you get in and you're knackered you have to give your face a scrub and moisturise so you look alright the next day.

What has been your favourite beauty look this season at London Fashion Week?

This one [Topshop Unique] is my favourite. It's so cool. Like, I've got red lips but it doesn't feel like you're wearing lipstick. I keep forgetting. Look, it's all over my Pret can. It's natural and a bit messy.
