I love the wardrobe of Immodesty Blaze - she manages to be so sexy and stylish at the same time.

Applying my lipstick - I agree with Liz Taylor that when in doubt you should "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together!"
What’s the last book you read?
Marlene Dietrich: My Life

At the moment it’s Rita Ora's Anywhere, which just makes me escape away from the world and imagine my own

My friends, family and animals

Naughty French martini or green tea goodness?
French Martini all the way!
Dressed up or dressed down?
If I'm in public it's got to be dressed up
Skirts or trousers?
Skirts to flirt. . .
Introvert or extrovert?
I have days of being an introvert but the extrovert in me is stronger
Comedy or thriller?
Comedy - laughter is medicine
Call or text?
Text (unless your my bestie!)
Truth or dare?
True vintage or brand spanking new?
I love vintage but great vintage is so hard to find and can be musty . I love that their is so many great companies copying cool vintage designs and so we can have new vintage style

Make the USA change their gun ownership laws

Enjoy not exercising and eating junk food without gaining weight as that doesn’t last!
I am happiest when. . .
I’m with my friends and animals having a glass of wine and gossip
What’s your favourite What Katie Did piece?
Hardest question of the lot! All of it! Probably the Glamour Nouveau Merry Widow as it's instant glam, and makes you feel super sexy, but probably teamed with the 1930s Lounging Robe to make me feel like I’m lounging around my Hollywood mansion in the Thirties. . .
