MODEL and stylist Numba Pinkerton opens up about her life through her wardrobe
What’s the last piece of clothing you bought?
A Paul Costelloe peacock blue structured pencil dress from TK Maxx. It is elegantly classic, comfortable and flattering around the waist.
What are you addicted to buying?
A-line skirts. I’m not a big fan of tailored trousers, so structured skirts are a good alternative for me.
Best ever bargain?
A lovely pair of Dior oversized sunglasses with fuchsia and leopard print frames on sale for £80 instead of £330.
Who has great style?
Victoria Beckham. She is my style icon. I love her pristinely cut, long, lean outfits which perfectly flatter the female form.
Name your favourite high street shop.
Zara. I particularly love their jeans and blazers.
Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about?
I wasn’t the most stylish when I was 17. Looking back now, I feel the biggest fashion mistake I made was to wear flared jeans with flat shoes and a T-shirt.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?
My pair of Vivienne Westwood harem trousers. They are high-waisted and beige with light blue and charcoal grey diagonal lines on them. They are constructed with a medium weight fabric which makes them perfect for warmer seasons in Scotland, as well as holiday trips abroad.
• Pinkerton will be offering fashion advice at Princes Square (48 Buchanan St, Glasgow,www.princessquare.co.uk) today from 10am-5pm as part of its style event.
